Legend of the Condor Heroes (2017)

Legend of the Condor Heroes 2017
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.

  1. The guy playing guo jing doesn't look right especially his hair style. Should have used yang yang or li yi feng

  3. I don't like the SFX in this one, the colors r dark and bland. Guo King has brown hair, Huang Rong's dad has blond hair. Did ppl really dye their hair back then? I also don't like the gimmicky drone shots. They look cool, but take you out of the story. I don't want to have to go, "oh look, that was shot from a drone" anytime during the drama...

  7. I've watched the first 6 episodes, i must say it is a really good adaptation so far. Pace of story is good and not too much CGI with good old kung fu and wires. The main actor and actress are good too IMO

  8. This adaption by far is the best jinyong remake in the last 10 years. The script is good and seems to respect the book. Love how none of the faces are super familiar. Please no Yang Yang or Li Yifeng or Zhao Liying!!!
