After two years of zero promotion, the new adaptation of Jin Yong’s novel Demi-Gods and Semi-Devils suddenly gets an airing date. I guess we are used to the quick announcement of premieres by now? If you have never watched any of the previous adaptations, the story has a lot of characters and relationships, please check out Wiki! My personal favorite is TVB’s 1997.
A little behind but I finally laid eyes on the first set of stills for the new adaptation of Demi-Gods and Semi-Devils. I’m so jaded now. Looking at new adaptations of Jin Yong’s novels nowadays, I can’t help but sneeze out a laughter. I’m happy for some of the actors you know, being able to breathe life into some iconic characters, but at the same time, there’s a feeling of miscast as well. I know, too early to say.
Is it weird that I find him looking good for the game promotional stills instead of his character as Xiao Feng in the drama? The hair is changed very minimally… Does anyone here play these Wuxia games? How are they? Are they available in English? They look awesome and emotionally charged.
The game hits the store on October 25th but no confirmation on the drama release date yet… Tskk. I don’t mind you coming out late, just don’t premiere at the same as other dramas, like The Four, okay?
Wallace Chung as Xiao Feng, Jia Qing as A Zhu / A Zi
Yes! Finally more news about this newest adaptation of Jin Yong’s novel. Produced by Chen Pin Xiang and directed by Lai Shui Ching (the two have worked together before in The Magic Blade), the trailer has me on the hopeful side. There’s real snow and the CGI doesn’t look half-baked.
Not bad. Not bad at all. Yesh, I have made friends with this version, nothing is gonna change anyway! And since I love Wallace Chung. What’s a girl gotta do here? 😀
I’m amazed at the speed of filming in China. This one started filming not so long ago and they already released a trailer! Do people NOT sleep over there?
Let me get this off my chest: Why, WHY is there another REMAKE of this series? Including this version, we have 5 adaptations of the same (and very popular) wuxia novel by Jin Yong. I’m sure there are many wuxia novels waiting on the shelves to be filmed, producers. You just need to research and read the dang novel!
A brief look at the photos…and I’m worried.
