Legend of the Condor Heroes 射雕英雄传 is a 2017 television series based on the first part of the Condor Trilogy, an epic multi-layered story that balances fact and fiction to create a martial arts-verse of noble heroes and swordsmen.
If you are looking to explore the genre, I highly recommend LOCH since it serves as the precursor to two of my absolute favorites, ROCH and Heavenly Sword and Dragon Saber.
A series this well-known often invites criticism though most would hardly know where to begin given the cast of unfamiliar faces. Having seen Li Yi Tong's performance in Demon Girl I can understand why she landed the role of the spunky and witty fireball Huang Rong.
Yang Xu Wen on the other hand might take some convincing. After all, Guo Jing's character always seemed an oxymoron of sorts, dim-witted yet capable such that portraying his squareness while turning up the charm might end up being harder than it seems.
