Set in the late Yuan Dynasty, the story revolves around a pair of priceless and extremely powerful weapons, known as the Heaven Reliant Sword and Dragon Slaying Saber, which many martial artists in the jianghu covet. Either or both of them are thought to allow their wielder to rule the wulin (martial artists' community), according to a widely circulating rumour in a repeated mantra. The series follows protagonist Cheung Mo Gei throughout his adventures and, along the way, finds him entangled in a complex web of love relationships with four maidens. The first, Yan Sit, is a horribly disfigured girl who is actually his maternal cousin. The second, Siu Chiu, is a Chinese-Persian servant girl who understands him very well. The third, Chow Chi Yeuk, is a childhood friend with whom he develops a strong bond with. The fourth, Chiu Mun, is a Mongol princess and his former arch-rival. ~~ Two versions: 37 episodes (TV) | 42 episodes (international). Edit Translation

People tend to overlook/neglect this version

Really good drama. The build-up for Zhang Wuji was really good and the fighting scenes didn't feel like an overload of CGI. In comparison to the 2019 version, this version has a good balance of martial arts and CGI. Also important to note that the CGI back in 2001 was not that advanced, which meant the actors had to put more emphasis on the martial arts and acting as opposed to purely relying on the CGI. Also let's not even get started with the outfits for the 2001 Wuji and the 2019 Wuji. The 2001 Wuji actually had outfits that fit his character, in comparison to the 2019 version, where the costumes looked funky for the Wuji, making him look very bland. Lawrence Ng did a really good for this role, and Gigi Lai's acting made her seem very sassy, which is a plus for a character like Zhao Min.
