I watched this movie for Wuchun because I was infatuated with him at that time. However, this movie disappointed me greatly as the acting of Wuchun's paled in comparison to Charlene's and since Wuchun was a lead, it affected my opinion on the show greatly. If you are a fan of this legend/myth, I recommend that you watch the Chinese version instead, with Dong Jie and Peter Ho as the leads.

They told the same history. You can choose the new version or the old one

Even though the plot line is totally different from each other, it's about a girl who disguises herself as a guy for good reasons, not to get the guy.
