Cast & Credits
Whenever I watch this one I always come back to the '85 version.Let me start off by saying.. I don't like this drama.
Story: I love wuxia and the stories and everything but I didn't like this story (even the original) that much. It just wasn't captivating enough. Imo, this was one of the less interesting stories of Jin Yong.
Acting/Cast: Their acting was decent, probably a bit better than the '85 version but the cast aren't attractive like the old ones if I had to be honest.
Rewatch Value: I would not rewatch this lol
Overall: Watch it if you're not big on looks and if you don't mind the computer generated effects (too fake imo)
