A close knit group of friends who are believed to possess some extraordinary talents. From very different backgrounds and each with their own illustrious and somewhat murky pasts spanning over centuries, they have over time been drawn together to become the Eight Immortals.
A 1000 year old story
It has been documented in the annals of Chinese history that some of the Immortals, perhaps most notably Lü Dongbin and Han Zhongli, were alive over 1,000 years ago during the Tang Dynasty.
Over the course of the subsequent Song Dynasty other Immortals began to join the group, and this continued until they numbered eight and the legend of the Immortals was born.
The Modern Immortals
In more modern times the Immortals waned in popularity and some even feared they would disappear from the public consciousness altogether… that is until now.
The Immortals are back stronger than ever, shedding their ancient appearance for a more modern day style. From mixologists to DJs they are now walking among us, and who knows one day you might even meet one.
