Careful... You might hate ZWJ if you read the novel. ZM is much more enchanting in the novel.

 

So true.. the ZWJ in the book is a player alright..

Totally agree. I even thought ZM deserves better. The guy kisses everyone, acting like he loves all of them. I like the first version of the ending the most. I really dislike the ending of the third version (the latest one), I can’t even express the feeling.

Hii ...do you mind telling me where to find the english version of the HSDS novel?

is it available online?

 

WuxiaSociety.com

You can read directly on their website, or you can download the eBook and read on your reader, iPad, android, etc.

 

Edit: The beginning is really boring, but it’s necessary to understand continuity of Guo Xiang, the 9 Yang Manual, and Zhang Sanfeng. It gets more interesting once Wuji leaves Wudang to go look for a cure to his poison. I also really liked reading his time spent in the mountains when he trained the 9 Yang Manual because it clarified some stuff for me and also when he trained the martial arts from the Ming Cult.

 

Now that I’ve “met” Zhao Min, it makes me feel giddy and smiley each time he has a confrontation with her or thinks about her (even if it’s just to say she’s a cunning woman) because I picture Joseph and Yukee in my mind, haha. I picture Joseph’s little pout each time he can’t beat her in an argument. I picture Yukee’s charming smile, even though the novel describes it as a “cold” smile. I think it’s going to be difficult to see anyone else in their places for the next 10 years, even if they do a remake.

The latest edition pretty much implies that he wants to be with all of them (all four of them). He can’t decide. Or at the very least according to the author’s note at the very end. 

 

 

I think the second version/edition ending is the same as the 2009 tv version, with ZR comes to see them with the promise. I think it ends with WJ thinking that he loves ZM but also misses or thinks about ZR too something like that.

Oh that ending sucks! I don’t like the second one very much either because it seems he’s not 100% love zm, only thinking he does.... hmmm yeah no. I’ll take this 2019 version any day! He’s very committed to her. Thank goodness.

I know Chinese viewers have seen this in the forum, but for Vietnamese fans, there are Viet Subs now!

 

I am watching it (slowly of course because I suck at reading Viet Subs), and Joseph is seriously so humble and HE LOVES ZHANG WU JI SO MUCH. The dedication and passion and energy he put in this role is told through this "Ted Talk" is what it seems like. I love being able to hear the actor talk about their role, and Wu Ji was meant for Joseph. He's so young, but you can tell he has an old soul, and his dedication towards acting is admirable.

 

Love this. Must watch! (And yes, he calls her Min Min <3)

 

He is definitely my Forever Wu Ji.

 

 

Love this! He's so mature for such a young actor. And a great public speaker too! First "TED talk" with fangirls heart-eyeing in the audience :D

If anyones interested I can translate it into English later. But basically he's really brave in facing criticism about his acting head on (even the dumb big eyes comments), discussing his insecurities, advocating for following your dreams by being really prepared and working really hard, and revealing that he's a super nerd who spent 4 months during the audition period doing nothing but reading the source novel, watching multiple HSDS versions, and reading online comments and analyses to prepare for his role lol he's so adorable!!!

I would love the translation :) I’m very happy to hear that he spent a lot of time prepare for this role. It’s kind of adorable that he is a fan of the character himself too.

I have heard from other people that the ending of the novel sucks because he’s still wishy-washy. Nonetheless, this is my first time reading it so I just want to get the essence and other important details of the story.

 

I’m at Snake Island and in the novel they spend many many days together on the ship while they were in disguise. It’s said that they spent their days chatting, telling stories, and they no longer felt like enemies. After Zhao Min explained why she bit his hand, Zhang Wuji (while laughing) even grabbed her hand threatening to bite her so she would never forget him too. She pulled away shyly of course. Aww.. they even flirted a little. I wish we had more flirting scenes in the series. But of course, I’m also extremely satisfied with Joseph’s (WJ’s) obvious love for Yukee (ZM), rather than some crappy open-ended conclusion.

IIRC, the 86 version has this scene.  Also the scene after the wedding where he says to her that she needs to repay him with her body for ruining his wedding.  He's such a lecher.
