A press conference was held today. Beside cat-walking down the red carpet in their costumes and waving their designated weapons, the first official trailer was also released to the audience. I watched the fancam trailer and is still upset with some of William’s fangirls. The need to scream EVERY SINGLE TIME his face is shown on screen while ignoring the rest of the cast members is frustrating, to say the least (click here for the fuzzy fancam). What’s going on here?! If I were there, I would be screaming for everyone, loudest for my girl crush Ying Ying because she deserves much more support than what was shown! Tskk Tskk!!
– calms self down –
Enjoy the heavy batch of images and trailer at the end. 😉
The trio – Nicky Wu, Zhao Li Ying, and William Chan. Looks like out male lead only has three hairstyles! Lol.
They look flawless, exactly like the stills which have been photoshopped!
Zhao Li Ying in her black widow outfit.
Ye Zu Xin or 10th Prince.
Vengo Gao. He’s sooooooooo tall! You will be seeing him Destined to Love You also. Ah, the hunks in that drama.
Our OTP. I wonder what William said because Li Ying glared at him and 10th Prince. She even raised her sword at their neck! 🙂
Louis Fan. One of Wulin Sect’s leader.
The Crew. I’m a little but surprised that the cast members are pretty small considering how big this drama is becoming.
- A Revised Version (by zlidia and me) of the Synopsis: The Kun Lun sect has been a powerful and righteous leader in the martial arts world for some time. To save the world from the evil that is Lu Pao (Nicky Wu), the leader of the Kun Lun sect places a magical blood stone inside the body of our hero, Ding Yin (William Chan) in order to enhance his already gifted talents. As a result, Ding Yin stays at Zhu Mountain, working on building and controlling his powers. In a chance encounter, he meets Lu Pao’s daughter, Yu Wu Xin (Zhao Li Ying), who is the spitting image of his deceased wife. He initially uses her but they slowly fall in love. Things build up to many majestic battles between the good and evil sects involving betrayal, sacrifices, and deaths. Possessed by the Blood Demon, Ding Yin is able to kill Lu Pao, leaving Wu Xin heartbroken. Her love turns to hatred and hatred breeds vengeance.
- In the trailer, Li Ying cries and tells her dad that it’s because she’s human and has flesh that she has feelings. The scene with William hugging her from behind, he asks her whether it’s worth it, forsaking her sect and family to be with him. Break her heart and see what happens, Ding Yin!
- You guys know what I just found out days ago? There’s actually another drama adaption of the novels made in 2001 starring Steve Ma as Ding Yin (click for poster). I did not recognize the cast but once I listened to the themesong, recognition hit immediately! Ah, I marathoned it with a friend and finished it (fast forward button was used). I like the story better than the TVB version. It is more imaginative, less redundancy, more character development. And then the mid-way point came and everybody became stupid. Lol. I also finished one TVB version – the first one (1990). Silly ending as well! So many deaths and a waste of power and talent in the last scene. I have five episodes left of the sequel (1991).
- I really hope this version has a decent ending and character development. Nicky! Don’t disappoint me!
