    Looks like this is called Xianxia novel which is related to Xian in Taoism and related to "cultivation" (but I can't expand more than this since this is out of my expertise at all, anyone feels free to expand and post the answer...)

  • Also. I found a YouTube video explaining this concept in Chinese fantasy novels, which I believe is more related. (Still don't have time to write a proper answer...)
