OMG why's there so many series coming out this year....this one looks interesting too..I might watch this one b/c I've seen Jet Li's Swordsman and I'm just curious to see if it's the same. Hopefully it won't be too disappointing.

ooooo... wallace is looking good!!! :D
but yes, i'm also curious if it's the same as jet's or different..


imma kick ur-ass-aya !
I haven't followed up with Chinese fandom in so long but wahhh, another remake? The only version I liked was TVB's 1996 one with Jacky. Hopefully this one is decent since they have a really good cast.

OMG I was about to bring that up too. I only seen the movie parts of Jet Li and Sam Hui. From what I see, it's suppose to deal with Miao but the costume don't really look Miao at all....or they did they change the story around? XD really wierd. I haven't been watching these series for awhile but if I do watch this, I want to see if Wallace will be able to play out the carefree and lady killer kind of character of Ling Wu Chung. ^^

this is fictional. its not like it is base of a real life character and events. sure the time period and history will be the backdrop but everything else would be pure fictional. I actually like the outfits.

OMG i'm excited now. lol are they going to use the same song? Can't wait...they started filming around march 24th already...
when will it be OUT! This make me miss Jet LI and Sam Hui's one movie part version. I'mma rewatch it tonight. :)


Expired Sarnie
I am looking forward to this because it will completely be 70 percent Louis Cha and 30 percent the scriptwriter/producer/director LOL But I feel like it is more of the other way around. They completely changed the story line. 
I am rooting for Wallace and Qiao En!!! OMG that way I feel more at ease. When I was watching Jet Li version, I shipped him with Bridgette Lin LOL but I was in a dilemma. He castrated himself and turned into a girl. Haha it will always be on my mind.

aww, they changed the storyline?? Well, I'm not use to watching these series with newer actors and actresses since i haven't watched chinese series in awhile. Lol

I'm excited for this one. Hopefully it'll be good.


Expired Sarnie
They made a few changes. Linghu love interest will be Dongfang Bubai. Dongfang Bubai is not a man who castrate himself but he is really a girl disguising as a man LOL I hope you followed through with what I just wrote keke,


Looking back at their outfits are quite colorful. Reminds me of Michelle and Raymonds upcoming series, Purple Hairpin. Kinda wish Wallace played in Dao Mo Yao with Hu Ge and Shi Shi, but its cool. More GeShi. :)

Uhhh... Blonde hair on Wallace? Yay or nay??
