I watched this drama when I was very young. I'm 15 now. I can't remember much of it but I could only remember that it was VERYYYYYYYYY GOOD ????????????. No offence but fighting and action dramas nowadays is NOTHING compared to how good this drama was. It is just so good! Actors, music, story everything is amazing! Basically my whole family is a fan of this drama I haven't heard anyone say this is bad. I honestly LOVEEEEE action dramas especially the ones with special powers and sht. They're so goodddddd. But idk why nowadays they don't or CANT make it as good as b4, like this. I would honestly want to watch this again so bad! (Even tho I usually don't rewatch dramas). But I have no time bc  if anyone can relate: too many other dramas to watch lol.  Also, the camera wasn't as good as nowadays so watching it just doesn't feel right. But if I have time like 36 hours a day I would definitely watch this again. DEFINITELY. The new versions of this drama has came out this year "legend of the condor heroes 2017". I did start watching it. It wasn't as good as this one tho. The actors are soso and not much of a change, I did keep watching because I did miss the story line but I just gave up. This ones just better. Anyways.....if anyone wants a GOOD ACTION DRAMA.....definitely try this one out.

This series was made in 1982 and is 59 episodes long. 38 years on, many people will consider this series a classic still. It didn't follow the novel closely and they added plenty of extra bits. But the cast, music, and acting was pretty awesome and stands the test of time. Most people will focus on Barbara Yung as Wong Yung. Her acting in the lead role has yet to be beaten to date. She then tragically died many years later and hence became immortalized and this was by far her best acting in a drama series. Then there's the handsome Michael Miu as Yeung Hong. Honestly, no one has come close to pulling off Yeung Hong since Michael Miu played the role. Then there's Felix Wong as Kwok Jing played to perfection. Sharon Yeung as Muk Nim-chi. The four leads were pretty strong. The supporting cast was also fantastic. There's no special effects or breath taking views in the 1980's dramas. So they had to rely on superior acting and wonderful story telling to draw the audience in. I've watched the series since I was a kid. So I regularly pull it out and watch now and again. There's always something lacking in the remakes I found.
