The story is set in the Song dynasty and at the beginning of the Jurchen-ruled Jin dynasty's invasion of northern China. The first part revolves around the friendship of two men, Yang Tiexin and Guo Xiaotian, who became heroes in their own right as they fought the Jin invaders. The bond between the duo is so strong that they pledge to each other that their unborn children will become either be sworn read moresiblings (if both are of the same sex) or a married couple (if they are of opposite sexes).
The story focuses on the trials and tribulations of their sons after Guo Xiaotian's death and Yang Tiexin's disappearance.

I have watched up to episode 30 and love this drama thus far as the story line is extremely close to the adaptation made with Felix Wong and Barbara Yung in the 80s.

The actors have also put up good performance but at the moment Barbara's Huang Rong still the best imo.

Michael Miu's Huang Yao Shi and William's Guo Jing are both very watchable.

Overall, great drama. Must watch. Entertaining. Nothing read more over the top. Perfect pace.

i love this story and have watched so many remakes of this in my life, even ones made before i was born, so the plot is def 10/10 but idk about the cast yet. other than li yi tong and a few of the older actors, all i see are new faces. the girl playing mu nian ci looks familiar but don't really know her either. I watched the first 4 eps read more and so far its pretty good!

      LOL! That's true! That's true!
      However I don't hate Huang Rong in ROCH when imagining it was a young ariel lin, athena chu, and barbara yung. But Li yi tong I cannot help, so much of a... playful character. She's going to do a big smile thinking that tricking Gu Guo to go away is so fun, too much unseriousness of a person.

    I would sub this in English but it's copyright so I can't sub it. I wonder why some dramas are copyright and some aren't.

      I couldn't even find its official channel on youtube. Maybe it didn't have one? But I can tell a lot of non-Chinese fans watched this drama without understanding the language. It's so sad that both Viki and Dramafever haven't licensed this drama. This version is so far pretty good.

      I'm glad that you want to sub it. I think you just upload the srt file somewhere, so non-Chinese fan can fully enjoy this drama. Thank!

      I review as how I see each of these episodes out so far. If my opinion somehow changes later, then I will go edit the rating to reflect it.

      10/10 is my opinion of this show 4 episode in, and frankly I doubt it will get bad based it's trend but we will see.

      I know how you feel, @DonYu, and I already felt like that in many dramas, but in long dramas (mainly chinese) they always start well the first 10~15 eps, it's addicting BUT then in the second half or last 5 eps they just screw up everything...
      I had so much traumas because of that LOL

    Awesome martial art! The wine battle in ep 2 is super cool!

    I love the old wuxia series feel I get from this adaptation. Brilliant touch for the instrumental opening using the infamous OST from the HK 1983 version. I love that they are not using famous pretty idol faces for this drama. The costumes are not overly done either - more realistic. I also like that the CGI is kept to the minimum and we get to see more real wuxia fighting. I hope they will stick closely to the novel. Please don't change any characters or storyline. If they stick close to the novel; this may yet be the best and most accurate version since the 1983 version! Please let this be a labour of passion for the novel and respect for the author and not another commercial exercise! Crossing my fingers!

      I also came here to say that the wire fu in this series is masterfully done, it's been a while since i've seen such well done choreography (especially in a c-drama). I haven't watched any of Condor dramas, mainly because neither the cinematography nor the actors would pull me in in any of them, but i found this adaption to have potential to do that, pity there are no subs.
