The Condor Heroes with Chen Xiao and Michelle Chen gets an air date

I checked and I haven’t written about this remake since….last year? Whoa. To be fair, there’s nothing to write about anyway since we know the story inside out, and head to toe. The catch is how Yumama is gonna change (ruin?) the story. I guess you’re anxious for the real date? Rumors last month said that Yun Ge From the Desert would air back-to-back with its prequel, Sound of the Desert. But the latest news from HunanTV adds a small twist and Romance of the Condor Heroes will premiere after Sound of the Desert on December 3rd.

BUT don’t worry, Yun Ge From the Desert will also air on December 9th. Two Yumama’s dramas back-to-back in one week. I guess your days of blood-spitting will happen 24/7 and every day of the week. Lol.

Let’s think positively for a second here….

Stills:

The main couple.

Zhang Xue Ying as Guo Xiang. I don’t need to tell who the monk is right?

Yang Rong as Mei Chao Feng. She looks stunning. Yumama got the prettiest girls in this version indeed.

Viann Zhang as Li Mo Chou.

Mao Xiao Tong, or Rachel Tong as Guo Fu. Huang Rong’s eldest daughter who is annoying and a spoiled brat. This is gonna be a challenge for me as I’ve grown to like Mao Xiao Tong a lot this past year and now she’s gonna play Ah Fu! BAHH.

Zhao Li Ying‘s cameo role as Yang Guo’s kind-hearted mother, Mu Nian Ci. 😉 You know what I notice? My babies both have dramas about romancing their masters! Lol! ZLY LOVESS her master in Journey of Flower.

Tsskk!! You guys should be loving each other! Not your masters! 😛

Trailers:

I’m unsure what to do, uploading-wise. I’m ehhhh with both dramas but dang it! Having my biases in the hands of Yumama does point the sword my way. What do you guys think? Anyone looking forward to either productions? Or both?

    I wasn’t even thinking of watching Yun Zhong Ge, but I might be changing my mind due to the impending epic withdrawal from Feng Zhong Qi Yuan’s finale next week. Sigh. I figured that seeing their daughter on screen might somewhat be a cure to not seeing WWJ and XY anymore.

      🙁 My WJ!! Maybe seeing Chen Xiao’s face all week long will cure the withdrawal symptoms…

      Dangit, now I wish WJ could be in the sequel. Imagine how fierce and protective he would be of his pretty daughter! AHHHHHHHH!!

        If only Tang Ren got hold of this drama too! I’m sure they’ll do a great job like what they did with Da Mo Yao. And perhaps we would have WWJ and XY appear as special (but very much welcome) guests! One could daydream since it’s too late to wish. Can Tang Ren do a remake instead? Haha.

          I don’t know. A few months ago there was a rumor going around that they might put out a regulation to stop remakes from becoming too saturated. A production company needs to wait at least 10 years to remake drama of the same name. Not sure whether this rumor was aborted or taken off the limelight (for now). I actually like it, if only to stop Yumama.

    I’ve decided that when watching Plagiarist Yu’s adaptations, I should just think of them as new dramas that plagiarize existing works and not think of them as real adaptations.

    Everyone looks so beautiful, including the much maligned Michelle Chen. She has a sweet baby face and I’m actually quite partial to her looks and find her more appealing than some of the classically beautiful onscreen starlets.

      I think Michelle’s horn hair has a lot to do with lowering her beauty in people’s eyes. She looks very pretty after the separation, thanks to the new hairstyle. The stylist for this drama is terrible!

        That horn hair is truly horrific T^T It’s tied with the short heavy bangs that YSS sported for Plum Blossom Scar (I can’t recall the drama’s actual name) as worst hair in recent drama history.

        hahah Horn hair.

        Beside the hair, these two do NOT have the romantic chemistry in the stills or the teasers!!

        But yes, the girls picked in this version are stunners!

    I like the more mature, grey-hair look of Chen Xiao. But god, can’t stomach Michelle Chen and her “out-of-this-world” haircut and appearance. She looks like….a bloated toad. Sorry for the language xD

    There will be nothing to watch for awhile, so we all probably have to watch this lol! Lets spit blood together! Hey maybe it might turn out good kakak

    P.s that pic above where MNC is holding her baby, does not look like she is protecting the baby from the rain, rain dropping on the baby lol

    Chubee, the stylist definitely has something against our XLN to put that hair on her.

    [email protected], fake baby loves rain. hehe XD

    EDIT// UPDATE: YUN GE FROM THE DESERT IS DELAYED AGAIN (Source). City of Angels featuring Yuan Shan Shan will take its place instead. Some say the quota for ancient dramas has been used up so they need to air a modern drama. But seriously? Yea…right…
