Legend of the Condor Heroes 2017 pays tribute to TVB 83 version with Tit Huet Dam Sum

Afraid of not being able to surpass the original song but still wanting to pay tribute to the golden classic, Legend of the Condor Heroes 2017 has opted for the instrumental version as its own opening themesong. The original song, “Tit Huet Dam Sum (Iron Blood and Loyal Heart),” was performed flawlessly by Roman Tam and Jenny Tseng, and still a song that frequents any wuxia’s fan favorite playlist, including mine. It was the opening themesong for Legend of the Condor Heroes in 1983 starring Felix Wong, Barbara Yung, and Michael Miu.

Ah, the feels… the feels. More good news at the end. 😉

More Stills:

Legend of the Condor Heroes 2017 premieres tomorrow, January 9th, with 52 episodes. GUH.

Li Yi Tong. Gotta go big or go home, little cute lady. I’m hoping for the best for you!

    AHHHHH! I’m SOOOOO excited! The FEELS! The feels are all coming back. You know that serious excitement can’t-wait feeling where your chest feels inexplicably itchy and you just wanna wriggle around until (the drama) finally starts broadcasting? The moment I heard the instrumental themesong, I just…it brings back all my JinYong love and used-to-be-irreplacable wuxia fanaticism.

      Me too. Me too. This type of song is rarely heard nowadays. The epic GAH GAH ones.

      I need a new pair of ovaries. Lol.

        Hey Kappy, maybe instead of giving your ovaries away (for the umpteeth time!), you can give your eggs away….since we are all born with around 2 million eggs…..you can definitely spare a few for the drama gods! 😉

          LOL! Thanks for caring about my limited ovaries, Aryael. I shall now use my eggs to do the explosion. KEKEKE. =D

      OMG…..SOOOOOOO EXCITED!!!! Can’t say it any better….overies, eggs…I’m all in. 🙂

    The bts video made my expectations go way high. i really hope they don’t disappoint, cuz from the bts vid, it looks pretty fantastic. I’m also really looking forward to OuyangKe’s kungfu too, but I have a feeling from how…fresh and …new(?) he looks I might be disappointed. In the 2008 version, Li Jie was fantastic in action scenes. His moves were so sharp and pretty, really elegant yet look vicious in that it actually looked like he was hitting real and hitting hard (he was also a dancer background so…lot to live up to, this dude).

    The feels is so strong. Anyone who grew up watching Wuxia from the 80’s know this song. It’s like THE song to represent LOCH. What a legendary tribute. My excitement level is super high. Please let this be good! First Wuxia of the year, and it’s a big one!

    I have always believed in this series since they started production, don’t let me down.

    We’re hours away to air time. It’s almost here!

      Wait, do you know how many hours? Like the broadcasting schedule? Is it gonna be at night China (whichever station) time?

      • 28 thoughts on “Legend of the Condor Heroes 2017 pays tribute to TVB 83 version with Tit Huet Dam Sum

        Don’t know the exact time per channel. But the countdown clock has hit zero.

        Some channel may get it earlier than others, it’ll probably be up later tonight.

          Lol. Gege opened the can of worm about the air time. I really don’t do timezone difference very well. XD

          Gaaaaahhhh! Just asking cuz I remember with Nirvana (still one of the only ones I religiously followed “live” every episode) only showed up online when it hit noon (for EST) and around 9 am (for PST) cuz it updated at night in China. I swear, even if I’m disappointed by this remake, I will follow it to the end!

    Kappy, you are the best, SISTAR! <3 I can't wait for more updates on this series… 🙂

      I forgot to say, I can’t wait for the duet between Michael and Felix. Geez, they reallyyyy went all out it feels with this production. Makes me super miss the old ones already too. I can’t believe how much time has flown now between all the series and its remakes.

      • 28 thoughts on “Legend of the Condor Heroes 2017 pays tribute to TVB 83 version with Tit Huet Dam Sum

        Felix looks so cute with his glasses!! My man. =D

        Right? 30 years of time and the song remains beloved in my heart.

    Thanks and loving your site!

    Love the instrumental version already. Keeping my fingers crossed that this version doesn’t disappoint but an added plus that Michael Miu will be in it as well.

    • 28 thoughts on “Legend of the Condor Heroes 2017 pays tribute to TVB 83 version with Tit Huet Dam Sum

      Michael is still so handsome with his hair and grace!

      Welcome here! =D

    AHHHHH, Michael and Felix!!! literal childhood baes <3 I'm a very loyal fan of the '83 version so I have extremely high expectations for this upcoming version, but I'm excited to see how Li Yi Tong will shape Huang Rong's character!!

    • 28 thoughts on “Legend of the Condor Heroes 2017 pays tribute to TVB 83 version with Tit Huet Dam Sum

      Lol. Childhood “baes”, a good mix of old and young slang terms! =D

  8. 28 thoughts on “Legend of the Condor Heroes 2017 pays tribute to TVB 83 version with Tit Huet Dam Sum

    Whoa…feeling nostalgic! Very smart marketing right there lol

    Yes to Michael and Felix! Can’t wait!

    I am so glad they went with the instrumental opening. I hope they stick to the story as closely as possible. It has been a while since someone did an adoption instead of adaption of Jing Yong’s classic. If they can minimise special effects and rely more on real kungfu actions to give it a real feeling, even better. I mean, we’ve had enough of special effects with many wuxia/fantasy series nowadays made in front of the white & green studio screens, instead of real environments. Time to revert back to the real deal, don’t you think?

    There are two other theme songs aren’t there? For Dong Xie Xi Du and Hua Shan Lun Jian. They should use all 3 songs ?

  11. 28 thoughts on “Legend of the Condor Heroes 2017 pays tribute to TVB 83 version with Tit Huet Dam Sum

    OMG OMG OMG YES I see success in them already, bc of the music, music is the main bomb of everything! Smartest move I’ve seen!

  12. 28 thoughts on “Legend of the Condor Heroes 2017 pays tribute to TVB 83 version with Tit Huet Dam Sum

    OMG OMG OMG, I have no idea that Michael will sing with Felix! OMG my uterus…LOL! Thanks a lot for this, Kappy!

  13. 28 thoughts on “Legend of the Condor Heroes 2017 pays tribute to TVB 83 version with Tit Huet Dam Sum

    Wait, that’s not “Iron Blood, Loyal Heart” that Michael and Felix will sing. That’s “You’re the Best in the World”, LOCH 1983 part 3 opening theme… i know this song by heart cos i made an MV of it last year…

    • 28 thoughts on “Legend of the Condor Heroes 2017 pays tribute to TVB 83 version with Tit Huet Dam Sum

      LOL. Icha, I guess we were all high on Iron Blood for the past week to realize it. XD I would notice it on the day of the performance. hahaha!

  14. 28 thoughts on “Legend of the Condor Heroes 2017 pays tribute to TVB 83 version with Tit Huet Dam Sum

    LOL, Kappy, you’re so right, we were too high on Iron… Blood… the last week or so. Still, part 3 OST is also my favourite, so I’m looking forward to it!
