Legend of the Condor Heores 射鵰英雄傳

YEAH!!! So happy!

I bought this famous TVB's 1983 TV Drama Series DVD Boxset - Legend of the Condor Heores 射鵰英雄傳. Based on the world #1 wuxia novel by Master - Jin Yong 金庸

My Thoughts
Many wonder why I bought it, as many think "it's so old". Well, to me, old or new, means nothing... but good or bad does!

This is one of the best - Legend of the Condor Heores 射鵰英雄傳, on screen ever. There were many remakes over the years, however, none beat this 1983 version. The cast were just perfect! Especially the two main characters - Guo Jing & Huang Rong, many had played these 2 characters, most notable are Felix Wong Yat Wah 黃日華 & Barbara Yung Mei Ling 翁美玲. They are simply the best Guo Jing & Huang Rong ever.

They managed to bring out the characters created by Jin Yong 金庸.

In memory of Barbara Yung Mei Ling 翁美玲
May 7, 1959 - May 14, 1985

@meendee: eh... 1st of all... there're differences between:
1) The Legend of Condor Heores; &
2) The Return of Condor Heroes;

Louis Khoo was "Yong Guo" in the remake of The Return of Condor Heroes, which was previously played by Andy Lau Tak Wah!

@phoenix: thanx phoenix... edited the name! LOL
