[Mainland Chinese Drama 2019] Heavenly Sword Dragon Slaying Saber 倚天屠龙记

Recommended Posts

@kimmortal

I don't like Zhang Wuji as a character in most of the previous versions but I love this version of Zhang Wuji due to he's not the wishy washy type.  The bonus for me is how Joseph Zeng who portrayal his character to perfectly how I like it.  Another reason I love Joseph's portrayal was his excellent chemistry with Yukee (I know I mentioned many times already).  Both of them are very comparable, even 86 version can not beat this. 

 

I understand Zhao Min suffered a alot for him.  WJ knew ZM like him a lot (hence: sacrificed her life when fighting the persian) and he also like her a lot.  Still they're enemies of two countries, WJ think their future is impossible, nada, zero chance.  This version of WJ portrayal as an upright gentleman, he definitely won't take advantage of her when he know they can't be together.  That is the reason why he hold back the kiss at Snake Island.

 

The scene at the Lake, I think WJ already made up his mind that he's going to marry ZZR since he already make that promised.  Again being an upright and live by the principal kind of guy, he can not lies about his newly engagement with ZZR to ZM.  He has to be upfront and be frank about their situation and warned her about the consequences if they insist to be together (him and her family killing each other at the battlefield).  At this point of time WJ probably think their love is even more impossible when they were at Snake Island. WJ also wants ZM to give up on him and go back to her family and live the life she use to live. He doesn't want to see her suffer more pain (only If he know she still suffered back home and almost got beheaded because of him).  I think in other versions, WJ did mentioned that ZM being a high status princess she is, he is not good enough for her.

 

We the audience might think WJ is being stupid to rejected a girl like ZM and marry a girl like ZZR (me included, no offense to others..please don't kill me).  But in reality he has to look at the bigger picture, ZZR is the perfect choice for him and his Wudang family, godfather, grandfather, uncle, and  Ming Cult. members.:lol:(WJ live for everyone else but himself).  Their lives are not solely base of their love life, they have to think about their families, duties, and countries, etc.  LOL....I have to rewatched so many times to understood WJ perspective. I used to get so mad at WJ when I watched episodes 39 to 41 for the first time.  I even told myself not to rewatch those episodes but I'm glads I did, I understood WJ more now with a clearer mind.

Until now I still didn't watch from eps 39-40 after MinMin left WJ at the lake. I just feel sad for MinMin when WJ told her to forget him.

Okay after watching the FY and WJ extended fight, I am pissed!!! Why didn't they just cut the useless Er Mei daily life, ZR cooking, SQS love life stuffs, even the early Wu dang uncle and child WJ stuff also, aarrrggh!!

Why did they cut WJ's line in the mainland, where he said "Lend it to him"? Just by adding this one line for WJ it changed the whole dynamic, it showed that WJ is the leader, it give WJ a different aura as Jiao Zhu. If WJ didn't say that YX wouldn't give  the sword, aaarrgggh!!! :angry:

Also by doing that awesome movement where WJ took back the sword it gives a whole different gravitas, that WJ already lend it to FY now he's taking it back, it showed, I'M STRONGER THAN YOU, I don't need a sword just the scabbard to shut you down. AARRRGHHH!!!! :tired:

Do you read Chinese?  I curious about the Cfans reactions.  Did they make a commotion about the cut of this crucial fights scene specially WJ's line "Lend it to him" was completely cut out?  Fans of HSDS are already complaining about this version's kunfu department are being weak and how dared they even cut that suppose to be an awesome fight scene short. :rage:

Mostly same reaction as me, "why they cut just this one line?" "they should be able to fit this line" "is there somebody in the editing dept. who hate Joseph's WJ?" "Jiao Zhu so handsome" "Give back my son's deleted scenes" " Who said that big eyes are bad, see how majestic he looks" lol :lol:

 

But yeah like I said before, just by adding back this one line it changed the whole dynamic of that scene. Previously YX immediately lend the sword without order from WJ, I actually thought YX already know who Ku Da Shi is that's why he immediately gave it, and it kind of make little of WJ's stature as Jiao Zhu, even though previously YX was so demured when he thought he offended WJ by promoting Zhu Lao Si without his permission, like it's just weird, like YX only respect you when he needed to but not all the time??? so weird.

But by adding back "Lend it to him" it gives integrity to YX who always respect WJ as Jiao Zhu, also give gravitas to WJ aura as Jiao Zhu.

AAARRRGGGHHHH!!!:tired:

 

@LaurenPanna Don't ever go to Tieba then I think you'll vomit blood.

I'll just give you this an interview with Yukee and it said by the numbers most c-netizens is in love with Yukee's ZM, ignore the trolls. The fact that they comment on BTS is just stupid and should be ignored ;)

Guys, I need something else to watch. I feel so directionless. :sweatingbullets: I'm suffering from "What do I do now? Syndrome", especially now after the Game of Thrones finale. Everything I was anticipating this year has ended. Finished Avengers: Endgame, Game of Thrones, Heavenly Sword and Dragon Sabre (both the series AND the novel)... What did I used to do with my life? :lol:

 

I watched a pretty good show last year called "Proud of Love".  Check it out if you don't have anything else to watch: https://mydramalist.com/16403-proud-of-love

 

Another show you should check out is "Barry". https://www.imdb.com/title/tt5348176/

 

Edit: Oh, I forgot to mention.  Proud of Love has 2 seasons.  The first season's theme is body swapping and the second one involves time travel.  It's a fun not-so-serious show that you can finish in a day or two.

Yeah @kur4p1k4

Unfortunately I visited tieba once and really did vomit tonnes of blood. It was like the people there are totally from different planets at all. After reading their comments, I wonder which hole did I come from. I only feel normal when I visited soompi and weibo. 

 

Thanks @kur4p1k4 and @jackieusa for all the awesome Gifs and analysis

 Guys, I just noticed something at the beginning of Episode 49 - when WJ led his Ming brothers to fight the Yuan soldiers in their own camp. There wasn't any shots of WJ himself fighting - there were of everyone else. I wonder if there is a deleted scene of him in the camp. 

 

I was kinda hoping that he would try to avenge MinMin's death.

I think this is the one that got cut before the start of ep 49. I never see this scene anywhere, but it's in the OP song. I don't think he would ever kill ZM's dad and brother even if they're the ones who kill her imho, 1st they're ZM's family, 2nd WJ just do not like killing people for personal vengeance

Oh seriously? there is a cut scene? Maybe we will get to see it somewhere! 

Yes, you are right - WJ is not into revenge killing. I was hoping that he would at least confront them... oh well..

Wuji take the horse, ZZR walked 

 

VS

 

Wuji and MM ride the horse together 

Hahaha, I would probably give this a pass, since this is more of a show of force for Ming sect, like all those political campaign theatrical show off. Even all the Ming sect ppl are walking and WJ horse is held by somebody right B)

I guess this was shot when Joseph still cannot ride a horse by himself.

Another nice pic of JZ and YC. All credits to the owners of the oic/account

Add me to another one wishing for their collab soon. Their on screen chemistry is too good to be showcased only in one drama. That small touches,  reflex glances toward each other. It's hard to be able to reach that level of chemistry between co-stars :mrgreen:

Ok I was confused why the suddenly there's 2 new blurry photos, there's another one where you can somewhat see WJ is holding hands with ZM. These photos based on Douban convo is from ppl who work in the freight dept who took it, so not really official BTS. Also apparently based on Douban ppl speculation, take this with a grain of salt, this might be a deleted scene where WJ is taking ZM for a walk on the street holding her hand like a couple with all the Ming sect ppl behind them lol. They speculate it should be on the way to Shaolin but before meeting ZZR. if it's true, XX has really been usurped by ZM lol, WJ rather than quickly going to Shaolin you take ZM shopping lol, what a doting husband :joy:
