First Look at Tong Meng Shi and Mao Xiao Hui’s The New Version of the Candor Heroes

Another new adaptation of The Condor Heroes with a weird/misspelled title?! The New Version of the Candor Heroes (神雕侠侣) features two green faces in Tong Meng Shi (Colourful Bone, The Taosim Grandmaster) and Mao Xiao Hui (The Twin Flower Legend). We have seen Mr. Tong in a few projects but for Mao Xiao Hui, she’s pretty green so let’s hope that factor will help her ~

Zeng Shun Xi’s Heavenly Sword Dragon Slaying Saber 2018 drops first trailer

Okay, okay. This remake looks pretty decent! Abundant of real outdoor scenes with waterfalls, mountains, and trees. The girls are gorgeous to look at and like I said last time, Zhu Xu Dan as Zhou Zhi Ruo is stealing all my attention without breaking a sweat. She has that cold beauty vibes going for her and I’m a sucker for it. Lol. Our hero played by Zeng Shun Xi worries me a little because he only has one expression throughout the trailer. xD To be fair though, Wu Ji the character isn’t very expressive…

Remembering their Names: The Passing of Jin Yong, Yammie Lam, Elliot Ngok, and Raymond Chow

This has not been a good week/month for Hong Kong entertainment as quite a few beloved names bid farewell to the world. Legendary wuxia writer Jin Yong (real name Louis Cha), actress Yammie Lam, veteran actor Elliot Ngok, and famous producer Raymond Chow Man-Wei (Fist of Fury, Way of the Dragon, Police Story). I grew up with Jin Yong’s novel-to-drama adaptations, the world he craftily created now remains an integral part of almost every wuxia drama produced. To me, he was always like one of the top masters of a sect, who already attained immortality, and forever looked down at the humans adapting his works into various mediums. He was 94 when he passed away. A name we will always remember. Then there’s Yammie Lam, a beautiful and talented actress of the 80s in TVB dramas, whose life was marred by tragedies; failed relationships, parents’ deaths, and being a rape victim to two power players. I’m just terribly sad that there was no uphill in the latter half of her life and she died at the age of 55 in her own home, found by a friend. May she rest in peace and find freedom in the other world. Veteran actor Elliot died at age 76 with his wife and daughter by his side. He was one of the actors that I watched backwards because I only saw him in dramas beginning in the late 2000’s after he returned to Hong Kong (and TVB). Lastly, there’s renowned producer Raymond Chow, co-founder of Golden Harvest, a Hong Kong legendary film studio, producing memorable films as well as discovering and nurturing many stars. He passed away at 91.

Smiling Proud Wanderer 2018 Trailer: Ding Guan Sen, Xue Hao Jing, Chen Xun, Ding Yu Xi

Oh! Color me impressed with the first trailer! All seriousness! I think a lot of us were underwhelmed last time by the poor styling and fan-taken pictures. The new posters look much better and in motion, this looks like a very decent production. It’s led by a group of rookie actors so let’s show them some support and kick back on the not-so-pleasant comments. 😀
