    Let me first start off that I have not seen any other versions of Swordsman, but I really enjoyed this one. Even though, some parts were draggy but overall it was good.

    Story: I really enjoyed the story of Ling Hu Chong and his adventures. Even though, there were some parts I was really annoyed with him. The audience could see the truth, but he can't so that ironic. Overall, I thought the story was fresh and well done. I need to watch the other versions and do a compare and contrast though. I feel that Dong Fung Bai deserved more then she was getting. Watch it then you will know what I mean.

    Acting: I like the main leads acting and I didn't really pay

    Story: Ling Hu Chong (played by Wallace) is a carefree and honourable man. He was the eldest disciple of the Hua Mt Sect and a favourite amongst his juniors and teacher.

Eventually, his teacher turned Ling Hu Chong into a scapegoat for all of his evil deeds, including heaping blame of the murder of one of his student on Ling Hu Chong. Lin Hu Chong got kicked out of the Mt Hua Sect. That is when his true read more

    Ugh I finished this and I have a love/hate relationship with this drama. I ship DFBB x LHC so I was really disappointed they did not end up together. I already knew it though since I know of the original. It's just this version made my heart sway towards that couple so much and the chemistry between Chen Qiao En & Wall Huo! Just amazing. I would love a second season, but that is of course very doubtful and it might just hurt my heart more if my OTP is not together. Overall, I really did enjoy this drama~ <3

    Just finished this and thought it was alright. Haven't ever watched any other versions so can't really compare them. I was totally shipping DFBB and LHC.. only wish there was more scenes of them together... but oh well.

    I am really curious about this adaptation of the novel. The older adaptation "Laughing in the wind" is one of my favourite wuxia.
