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


Recommended Posts

Hiiiiii! Hope everyone is well!

 

Just leaving this here as I have been a terrible updater. I've recently started rewatching the series again in Viet Dub and have been inspired anew now that work has slowed a bit. :)

Title: Fortunately

 

Chapter 9:

 

妳便是我 命運安排的人

You are the one fate has arranged for me.

 

--

 

She is silent as their affixed eyes linger, the all-consuming vibration in the air sending chills down Wu Ji’s back. The amount of love he feels for her, the longing of the past few years conveyed through the gaze he holds.

 

Wu Ji wants to fully give in to the urge of pulling her into him, wrapping his entire body around her to protect Zhao Min from any pain or harm that may come.

 

But not like this. Not in front of her father and not before he can fully repent.

 

Wu Ji wants to do this right.

I'm completely gobsmacked by the criticisms of young Joseph's performance. So far he's nailed the role in all its essence.  He's probably the most age-appropriate ZWJ that I've seen. And I love how he

About to get sentimental on you guys. I think I've finally realized why I'm borderline obsessed with this version of ZM/ZWJ, as opposed to just being a passerby viewer in the previous versions. This v

@kur4p1k4 thank you kurapika for the information. ZM and ZWJ are indeed the best couple beating all the odds. I think they are representing most of us people so we can feel the love.

Hi @deminni , @LaurenPanna 

 

I wonder where can I read your hsds fanfic? Is it in English?  I have written one as well. So I am interested in reading others. My fanfic can be found here  https://github.com/psksvp/hsdsMe. It is in English. If you read it, please let me know if you hate it. :)  

 

On The Grassland is a continuing story from the end of JinYong’s novel; The Heavenly Sword And Dagon Saber.

A review of the DVD set I bought from eBay, the one from Malaysia, licensed TVB.

 

  • It's not High Definition. Even if the box says filmed in HD, the quality of the video itself is Standard Definition.
  • PAL— will not work on NTSC TVs or DVD players.
  • Audio is both Cantonese and Mandarin. But Cantonese is default, so you gotta switch it to Mandarin at the beginning of playback of the disc (just once at the beginning, and not per episode).
  • Video is Hong Kong's cut, and not Tencent's cut, so you get that extra kick from Zhao Min but lose her smile when he falls down the trap. You also get a few more shots of the fight between Zhang Wuji and Fan Yao as well as the lines "Give me a sword", followed by Zhang Wuji saying, "Give it to him" before Yang Xiao gives Fan Yao the sword (I know that matters to some people). The fight looks better overall. (Btw, rewatching that fight, Wuji looks so pretty, LOL. He's a very beautiful looking boy).
  • The opening theme song is the Hong Kong cantonese version. It's a nice song, but I much prefer the mandarin song Daojian Rumeng (刀劍如夢; A life of fighting is but a dream) performed by Wakin Chau because that's how I first watched it. Alas, I'll have to settle for imagining it in my own head when I watch the episodes, or I fast-forward the opening.
  • The ending theme song is, of course, the Hong Kong cantonese song. Whatever title that is. Somebody else can look it up.
  • 5 episodes per disc, and they skip the opening theme and ending credits for most episodes. The first episode in the disc gets the opening theme and the fifth episode of the disc gets to keep the ending credits. I don't know why--to save space?
  • Thankfully, the English subtitles are decent. They translate the poetry, the martial arts lingo, the names of people are traditional mandarin pinyin, so you'll see "Zhang Wuji" and not "Cheung Mo-gei". The names of objects, places, and martial arts is English, where it's relevant. For example, you get Reverend (English) Jueyuan (pinyin) and Nine Yang Divine Skill (English), which is exactly how I prefer to read my subtitles. I have a hard time remembering everything if it's written "Jiuyang Zhenjing" etc. Well, that example is rather easy but it gets more difficult when the titles get longer, like "Hùn yuán pīlì shǒu Chéng Kūn". Like geez, give me something I can pronounce. But like I said, these are decent English subtitles.

That's all, I think. I skimmed through the dvds, without really watching the episodes so I can't comment on how consistent the English subtitles are with terminology. For example, I don't know if at one moment it says "master" and then the next it's going to say "shifu". It could--I'm saying I don't know. One of my pet peeves is inconsistency, so I really hope whatever term they use, they stick to it throughout the whole show.

 

Now I really wonder if I would have gotten the original opening theme song if I bought the Singapore box set version. Hope somebody out there could enlighten me, if you happen to purchase that one.

 

Edit: I just realized maybe my idea of SD is different from everyone else's. Perhaps my eyes are so used to HD that anything less looks SD, I'm not sure. I just know that this doesn't have crisp, clear lines like a blu-ray dvd. I really think it's just SD.

Hi, I just bought the Singapore version and I think the contents is mostly the same. Its also 50 eps, Canto and mandarin audio, the subtitles is decent but there is some off translation that bug me like Call me 'Hao Jiejie' they translated it as 'My lady' :sweatingbullets: and Gongzi /Young lord as Master. But I think the quality is HD, the op and ed songs is HK version

**** WARNING: THIS QUESTION CONTAINS A HUGE SPOILER ****

I just finished this 2019 version of HSDS.  I really enjoyed it overall and was really happy to see a happy ending for Zhang Wuji and Zhao Min.  That said, in discussion with family, I found people to be quite divided about the ending.  Specifically, some thought that it wasn't credible that Zhao Min would accept Zhang Wuji after he blew her off after the death of her father and chose "the nation" instead of following her.  Her break-up with him seemed quite final... plus she's a strong and dignified woman.

 

My understanding is that this ending is unique to the 2019 version of HSDS.  Is anyone aware of an official explanation (from directors, scriptwriters, or cast) as to *why* Zhao Min would forgive Zhang Wuji and accept him at the end?

Ah,  been a while since I check in to this sub. Anyone still lurking?  :mrgreen:

 

Regarding as to why ZM can forgave WJ. 

 

My memory might be a bit rusty as it's been a couple of months, but there are several possibilities that I can think of

 

1. ZM is a rational person. She chases what she wants,, but most of the time, she assess the situations before she acts.  She does not really let down her rationale that easily (as shown by her tactics in tackling difficult situations). She knows that the culprit behind the tragic end of RYW is not ZWJ. In fact, i Think she herself knows that WJ is as much as a victim as her and her family. Hence, she doesn't target him but Zhu when she wanted to revenge.

 

2. I would think  ZM herself knows since the beginning that WJ will not and can not abandon his fight for his people. Just like she also will never turn her back against her family (hence,  she never help WJ when it comes to his fight against her family). She helps him a lot (and I mean,  really really a lot). Example, see helps him find his godfather,  she helps him clear his name when his Wudang uncles thought WJ killed Mo Shenggu.  But when it comes to Ming vs Yuan,  she refuse to help (ex: during their encounter after she save him from his unwanted almost wedding).

 

I might be wrong but I think,  one reason of her asking him to choose between staying behind or leave with her is because she has seen how his members are ready to undermine him as their leader. Perhaps, I would say It's actually for his sake as well. She can see that he's actually disposable in the eyes of his members (not all perhaps, but fot some,  I would think so).  

 

3. One reason as to why she could accept him again is linked to point 1 anf 2. Plus the fact that he abandon everything to find her. Still doesn't answer all the questions of course,  but these are some of the possibilities that come to my mind. 

 

Although it might help if there are cut scenes toward the end of the series that might fill in these gaps.

To: Director Jiang & HSDS 2019 Production team

On behalf of the Fan communities of the on-screen couple, protagonists of The Heaven Sword and Dragon Sabre 2019, Joseph Zeng and Yukee Chen,

I am sending this email to express our appreciation for your dedication towards the production of HSDS 2019.

On top of that, We would also like to show our support for Joseph Zeng and Yukee Chen, as their performance in HSDS 2019 are truly commendable. Both of them are able to bring out the required traits in the main characters Zhang Wuji and Zhao Min that they are portraying. Joseph has a natural flair for acting and his portrayal as Zhang Wuji deeply touches our hearts, while Yukee portrayed a  Vibrant and Charismatic Zhao Min, who constantly wore an infectious smile. Their good performance were Truly Unforgettable.

What impressed us the most was the Excellent Onscreen Chemistry they had with each other. This made us yearn for more collaboration between the both of them in the near future.

Once again, We wish to thank Director Jiang and the production team of HSDS 2019 for your great work. We Sincerely hope that you can grant our humble request to have both Joseph and Yukee to collaborate once again in your future production series.

Their new collaboration will definitely become a big Hit , just like HSDS 2019.

Thank you.

Yours Faithfully.

Fans of Joseph Zeng and Yukee Chen

Getting the actors to pair up again depends on a variety of factors - their schedule, pay, type of role, etc. I think the schedule is the most tricky part.

 

Where is your friend in China going to send this email to?

We might send in weibo

Because I promised the fans to write but now am not sure where to send to get the best effect

Good luck. My Weibo messages never got replies when I bothered to write to the official channels but I guess they probably get tons of messages.

 

Your letter is quite well-written.

Thank you! 

I believe mine will not get read as well hahaha

To add on to my previous replies, we were all big fans of ZWJ and ZM. I missed talking to all of you and in fact ZM taught us something, 说到做到 ,do as what we promise ourselves and others that we will do. 

 

Jiayou everyone!
