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. 😉
Sigh. They are so cute but these kids have a lot to live up to, especially in drama adaptations of Jin Yong’s wuxia novels, which have been done many times through the years and some are still considered the golden standards (tvb) even up to this day. The new Legend of of the Condor Heroes has a press conference today and they release a new trailer along with snippets of the opening themesong sang by Silence Wang.
