Candle in the Tomb (2016) – Dramacool

There is an old Chinese saying, “A human lights the candle and the ghosts blow it out.”
Hu Ba Yi is well versed in Feng Shui with specialization in tomb configuration, which he learned from an antique book he inherited from his family. The knowledge saved him when he fell into a ditch in a snow avalanche in Tibet. And again when he and his friends joined an archaeology team to explore the “ghost cave” located in Taklamakan Desert. As he helped the team navigate through the dangers, he couldn’t help feeling that someone had predicted their every move and designed the traps and hidden passages accordingly.
