OMFG I kind of just realized this remake has been going on for a long time and I haven’t even made a post about it, and lately there has been amazingly high quality stills for this series, so here I am making a delayed post! AHH SO DARN EXCITING I CAN’T WAIT!!!! The cast looks amazing!
Starring Wallace Chung as Qiaofeng, Kim Kibum as Duan Yu, Han Dong as Xu Zhu, Zhang Meng as Wang Yuyan, and Jia Qing as A Zhu. Also, three special guest stars – Alec Su, Alyssa Chia, and Gao Yuan Yuan are going to come back for a cameo!
I’m aware some people have expressed unhappiness because of the cast, such as having a Korean guy play the lead, but c’mon, let’s all embrace differences, and be happy that this is being made, I know if one of our awesome Chinese actors go overseas to star in a show from another country, I wouldn’t want people there to give him a hard time. Let’s be supportive!
The epic centers around the Beggar Leader Qiao Feng, the Dali Prince Duan Yu and the Shaolin Monk Xu Zhu. Each of their stories are interweaved throughout the show and finally clash and join at the climax of the story. Qiao Feng’s story is his quest to find his real identity and the mystery surrounding an event that occured 30 years prior that left him as an orphan. Duan Yu’s story covers his meetings with many of his half sisters that he did not know he had (thanks to his adventurous dad during his young days) and the battle with Duan Yuan Qing as the rightful ruler of Dali. Xu Zhu is a lowly Shaolin Monk who gets caught in the middle of an internal struggle of the Care Free Sect, one of the most powerful and secretative sects around. Their stories take place during the Northern Song Dynasty and across warring kingdoms of Song, Liao, Dali, and Western Xia.

This looks AMAZINGGGG, and I’m REALLY excited for this! I haven’t seen this one before so it will be another awesome experience. I really love the outfits and what’s shown on this trailer and pics!
