    I wasn’t into Mysterious World or a Dream Back to Qing at all, but the stills look really really pretty. Especially for Mysterious World, the posters are gorgeous!

    Excited for the new HSDS (kinda) mostly because the trailers so far have looked pretty good, and because I trust the guy who directed the 2017 LotCH which went well beyond expectations. However, I think Zhu Xu Dan as Zhou ZhiRuo looks freaking awesome and totally compelling in the trailers, so as a longtime fan of Zhao Min the character, I find that I might jump ship for this adaptation. (Sorry, I love Zhao Min but tbh now I can’t watch Chen YuQi without thinking of the demon princess from Ashes, esp when she as Zhao Min is shouting in one of the scenes from the trailer…like that’s the exact same expression as she had in Ashes…whatevs). Also, I def don’t think Chen YuQi’s bad at all (I didn’t watch WeiYoung (wait, why is it a Weiyoung when the pinyin is jin xiu wei YANG?) but in Ashes she was fine until I just plain got tired of her as a character…she was fine just repetitive, esp since the script added a bunch of stagnant plot arcs for her), but I personally think Zhu XuDan is a much better actress.

    I’m hesitantly curious about Monster Killer III. I loved 1, refused to touch 2 (and didn’t like the clips I saw, tbh), but 3…. I like Chen Yao quite a bit, and she’s been solidly awesome in the Monster Killer series, also cuz she freaking deserves to lead by now. BUT I’m mildly disappointed by the disappearance of her Yue QiLuo (or some manifestation of the character) bc she does that evil-but-lovable-but-also-freaking-creepy so well.

      I’m right there with ya, Zhu Xu Dan slays in every screenshot!! The makeup is so on point!! I have a soft spot for Zhi Ruo ever since Charmaine Sheh played her in the tvb version. LOL.

        Technically I’ve seen the 2001, 2003, 2009 versions, but I watched the 2001 (Charmaine) version with my family like…at a pre-10 age, where I have no memory of it or being able to understand it, except I remember the cover of the then-DVD-pack and thinking the girls looked real pretty.

        Remembering only the 2003 2009 versions means that I hold no love for ZZR, mostly because I never really believed in her emotions. Gao Yuan Yuan was beautiful, but my only impression of her was that she was gentle, and wishy washy. Idk. I never really felt for her “love” (also cuz it never seemed like Zhang WuJi legit loved her, just as a sister…at least in the 2003 and 2009 versions), and because I hated MieJue so much, I never understood her struggles to be filial to her teacher.

        But somehow, maybe it’s acting, maybe it’s the directing, script whatever, but I can emotionally connect with Zhu Xu Dan’s Zhou Zhi Ruo. Instead of Gao Yuan Yuan’s flat, blank “uhh what do I do” perpetual expression when stuck between ZWJ and MieJue, Zhu XuDan legit looks like she’s pushed to desperation cuz she “loves” both parties (seriously tho, who loves MieJue! she’s so obviously evil).

      Agree with you on Monster Killer. Freaking loved the first one. The second one was a travesty. Chen Yao was fabulous as the disturbing, creepy and adorable lead in the first one. I hope in the new one they’ll finally have a relationship line lol.

      The 1986 version with Tony Leung and Kitty Lai is awesome.
      I have been told that the 1994 version from Taiwan with Steve Ma is pretty good too. I think this is on youtube.
      I have actually seen the 1984 version from Taiwan, but cannot remember anything from it.
      If you can understand Chinese (Cantonese?), the TVB 1978 and 2000 versions are on TVB’s youtube channel.
