I agree with most of the reviews here about how the series show child ZWJ bonding with his uncles, grandmaster, ZZR, Chang Yuchun and Hu Qingniu. The first child actor is amazing and I cried through so many of his scenes.
This is the 6th HSDS I've watched and my favourite so far. Prior to watching this, the 1994 adaptation was my favourite although I know it deviated from the novel loads. I am really convinced of the love between ZWJ's parents, and the romance between YX and JXF.
I hope the latter part of the series doesn't undo the strong foundation that the "previous generation" built. I was really disappointed by the casting of the adult ZWJ and hope my fears are proved unfounded.
