One of the anticipated things from the latest remake of Heavenly Sword and Dragon Saber 新版倚天屠龙记 is the return of Kathy Chow's who's role as Zhou Zhiruo in the 1994 Taiwanese drama adaptation continues to be a classicShe will be playing Miejue Shitai while Ten Miles of Peach Blossoms star Bambi Zhu Xudan will be playing her prized protege as Zhou Zhiruo.

At the age of 51, Kathy Chow is still a stunning beauty and while I find it fitting that she will be playing the role of the teacher, she seems too beautiful for the traditionally hateful character of Miejue. Fans seem to have already started predicting that she may end up outshining her co-stars.

Zhu Xudan does have big shoes to fill standing next to the woman who gave one of the most iconic portrayals of Zhou Zhiruo. We only have pictures to go by but she seems to be living up to the challenge.

  1. Wrong...wrong! Wrong! Wrong!
    Master Kathy is as beautiful as new Zhi ruo or even prettier...
    Yang xiao and wuji can chase after her instead of her students!

  2. The new Zhi Ruo wouldn't look so much like a "plastic beauty" if her make up isn't while to that extent. Maybe that picture was just overly filtered. But I know (roll eyes) if she doesn't do it, she'll be the only dark one...I hate those overly white make up. I wouldn't care if she's not as beautiful as GYY but as long as she is natural looking then she'll be like-able for sure. For example, I watched Kathy's Chow's portrayal of Zhi Ruo after GYY, I don't find her as pretty as GYY, but because Kathy Chow is very natural looking (those pics up there are classic!) so... she was just as gorgeous as GYY too!

    BTW, very beautiful clothings!!! I'm so glad they styled her up beautifully! Zhi Ruo is known to be a beautiful girl in lovely pink ---at least how I define it.
