Did Jin Yong perhaps sign a contract somewhere that all his new novel-to-drama adaptations must be headlined by new faces? The recent adaptations have all been really decent so far so I’m hoping the same rings true for this production. I have only ever watched the TVB version in 1999 with Sunny Chan and Charmaine Sheh. I both loved and hated it; heavy changes from the novel. Lol. I watched till the end because Sunny and Charmaine looked so damn good and sweet together. I was ready to spit blood if
I they don’t get a happy ending. xD
Back then TVB background music for their wuxia series is top-notch. It creates the mood for me to remember the series fondly until this day.
