    I'm not even Chinese or Thai, but I am obsessed with their TV series. Current obsession: Ken Theeradeth Wonpuapan. He has super good looks and is very talented.

    Sad at the end of part one. A happier ending in part 2 for Ada's character.

    I remember vaguely that there was a part 2 but I can't seem to find any info on it.

    Spoiler:
    Ada's character finds out that Timmy's character stayed to guard a flower until his death. She creates an avalanche is dies with him.

    Talking

    There was part 2 to this series??? Hmm...I watched this series long time ago too but don't remember the ending either

    Ada's character named was Luye^.n Nghe^. Thu*o*`ng right ???


    I remember either Mainland or the Taiwanese re-make & modified this movie by adding in more characters and make Ada Choi's character have a student named Ca'c Ba Nha~ or Phi Ho^`ng Ca^n, or Red Scraft (Ada was not in this movie), the series was called in vietnamese : Ta'i Ngoa.i Ky` Hie^.p . In this series, that student Phi Ho^`ng Ca^n later on turned into gray hair too, and her student didn't had white hair b/c she found her true love.

    Sorry I don't know Chinese, I'm throwing a lot of vietnamese names in there

    dont you remember from the series that the flower is supposed to return Yuk Luo Sat's hair to black again? its the very last part when Yat Hong met with the doctor who treated Ngok Ming Ngor and he told Yat Hong about this flower which supposed to be able to heal any disease in the world....

    YatHong sees this as an opportunity to seek for her forgiveness for what he's done to her, so he guards this so called flower that only blooms once every 10/20?? years.....

    hkopinions: there is part 2? how come i never heard of it? when was it released and how many episodes are there?

    Yeah, there was a part two but I don't think it is from the same company. I don't really remember much but Ada and Timmy are not in it.

    TiffTiff actually explained part II.

    Something about Ada has one or two students. She falls in love and falls in the same tragic fate as her sifu. At the end, the guy the student falls in love with tells Ada's character that Timmy's character actually loved Ada. He had been guarding the flower ever since their last encounter. He is really old now and waited till the flower bloomed. However, he frozed to death. Ada's char finds out and she cries (very sad, i cried buckets). Ada's char then causes snow to fall on them and bury the two so they can finally be united, (just like Ada's sifu and her love did in the cave in part I). The flower was left for Ada's student. I think it ends, the student riding off on a horse still white-haired. Her lover rides after her with the flower?

    I watched it when I was really young and can't really remember details of part II. It made part I less tragic. Anyone know any info on the remake or part II?

    It sounded good, i love tragic stories, tragic with some action spices of course, not much a fan of a romance stories....however, i cant imagine the series being made without Ada, Timmy i can bear with, but without Ada?wonder if the actors were good in it....i dont think i'll find this series tho, ive been looking for Ada's Romance of The White Haired Maiden and am still searching, what are the chances that i'll come across this series which few ppl know of?

    thanks for summing it up for me, hkopinins, ...appreciate it, i didnt read what TiffTiff was talking about, those Viet-named characters are real distraction....

    Yeah, I think you & I are talking about the same series. The part 2 where they make the movie/serie into the Quing theme, the period where guys wore braids w/ half bald headed

    That series had a bunch of unknown actors, I'm sure it was not TVB . The girl that played Ada's student were pretty. Ada and Timmy were not in this series. I feel pity for Ada's student though.

    TiffTiff you got in screenshots of the second part? I can't seem to find any information on the second part. It probably has a weird name cause it is not in the tvb database so it must be by another production company. The second part starts off with a kid visiting Ada's char and her students. The kid is somehow related to Timmy's character. The student and kid falls develop good memories at the beginning (i think). He returns later when he is older to find her.

    Another clue for part 2, the series does start in the Qing dynasty. In part I, the Manchus were attacking China's borders. So I guess they take over some years after part I ends. From what I remember the guys in part II had braided hair but it wasn't half bald so it is not made by Taiwan (like HZGG). I always thought it was TVB but no one seems to know about it.

    There is one series with Julian Cheung and Shui Ling but it isn't part II. It is just a butchered version of part I by Taiwan.

    It is quite possible that you are referring to the 90s Singaporean series titled The Legend of White Hair Brides, which takes place in the Qing dynasty. Only other series I can come up with that continues the story is Seven Swordsmen but that obviously can't be it.

    Whoa, I never thought there was a series like this but whoa....I'm suprised. And there is three white-haired maidens? Now that is just interesting... I don't think I got to see a lot of Singaporean series even a decade ago.

    Thanks Dagger Lee for sharing the clip.
