    Default Dark Tales I-II 《聊齋I-II》

    I'm sorry if there's already another thread like this, but I already looked around and couldn't find any. I want to know more about Dark Tales. I just saw a music video thingy and it looked interesting. If anyone could give any informations or post and pictures that would be great!

    Does this have a Chinese title?

    I watched this series a long time ago on TV. I wasn't sure which part I watched (actually I'm not even aware there are two parts to this series). It was the one with Cass Phang singing the opening theme song (and I love the song soo much too!). I remember I enjoyed this series immensely. The series is made up of several short stories that centre around the supernaturals and incorporate Chinese cultures and myths into them. There is a lot of interesting things you can learn from this series about cultural beliefs and animism, IMO. They have some really pure romantic plots as well. I remember the cast included some non-TVB actors. The only TVB actors that I can remember are Gallen Lo and Cindy Au. TVB Square provided the Chinese title as "聊斋."

    I highly recommend this series. Actually, I myself hope to be able to watch this series again.

    It looks really good. I was hoping if anyone had anymore information. I want to watch it but I want to know more about it first. If anyone has some pictures to post or anything...

    Some of the actors/actress play in other stories but in different roles. I don't know but may be you have seen them somewhere.

    Dark Tales I & II came out in 96 and 98.

    dark tales 2 was superb , one of my favourites , chinese fantasy/sorcery at it's best without any big name actors .

    I've only seen Dark Tales 2 and I enjoyed it. I thought the lessons/themes from the stories were really nice and unique. Hehe, also the stories themselves were pretty interesting to watch. The cast did a good job in protrayal!

    Thanks for the pics Bubblegum Hehe, brings back memories! I loved the first story with Jackie and Noel! It was really touching Espically that scene where Noel was "forced" to either kill him or be doomed as a bird forever.

    I also really enjoyed the final story with Jackie, Angie, Deric, Florence, and etc. It was just touching seeing Angie and Jackie develop a relationship. But my favorite character in that has to be Deric. Throughout he was very carefree and knew right from wrong. Even when Jackie didn't believe Angie's story and all, Deric was still there to take care of her and stand by her side. I was really sad for his ending! He deserved better!!!

    Hehe, Benny's stories were cute. I liked seeing him pair with Joyce Chen and Rain Lau since kept making me think of JTTW2, hehe His mother and son relationshp with Louisa sure was touching. But don't forget his father son relationship with Deric as well!!

    Lol, the most amusing story would probably be Joey Leung and Louisa So's. Seeing them pair together was really nice since I thought they were amusing in DIF1&2.

    I'm watching Dark Tales 1, there are a lot of stars in this series. I love watching ancient series filled with fantasies and supernatural. Too bad TVB don'e make such series anymore. All they produced nowadays are romantic series with lousy ending.

    Awwwww...I miss this series so much. It was so great despite the terrible effect, but I still loved it. Some of the stories in here are really heartbreaking and sad, especially the one I loved most starring Noel and Jackie where Noel was a magical bird but willingly turned into a mortal because she loved Jackie..the most saddest scene had to be when she'd rather be banish into a weakling parrot than kill Jackie, and in the end, Jackie realized who really cared and stayed with him always when he was in need, that shows that you should treasure what you have before you lost it..anyways, I just recently found and watched this in Google, or you can also watch it in Youtube, but Google has better quality, just typed in Lieu Trai and it'll give you the the searches. The exception of this one as my favorite story, I also liked two of Benny's part and Noel's second story with Patrick. It was all touching. By the way, I really love the themesong Cass Pang sings for the intro. It so nice!! Oh yeah, did any of you know she also sings for Dark Tales 1?
