    Default series about warring states period

    Are there any series about this period of history, or about the wars and legends from before the Three Kingdoms (like about Liu Bang and others) Any suggestions would be great. Thanks!

    New ones:

    I think there is one about Jing Ke which is set in the 7 Kingdom period that is about to come out. I forgot who stars in it. Maybe Chen Bao Guo.

    Hu Jun and Jacqueline Wu are also coming out with a version of the Chu Han War.

    Old ones:

    Romance of the Three Kingdoms: one classic series. 5 stars

    Han Wu Da Di: came out in 04, quite good and exciting. 5 stars

    Da Han Tian Zi: similar to HWDD but 80% of it is made up, watch it for HXM if you like him. 3 stars

    Is Feng Sheng Bang counted?

    I'll think of more later on.

    Any one watched that old one about Empress Lui Chi yet? My mum is looking for it when she goes back nect month. Anyone can give me a comment about to but or not to buy?

    There is an old one about young Zhuge Liang acted by Ren Quan and another one about the little prime minister (a kid) during the warring states, can't remember the name.

    There's a series called "Dong Zhou Lie Guo: Zhan Guo Pian" ( 东周列国: 战国篇 ) that you can try. It's split up into 11 sections about various people and events during the Warring States period. The format is similar to that of its sister series about the Spring and Autumn period.

    charbydis: If we're talking about the same Jing Ke Chuan Qi series, it's about the assassin and not especially historical, as far as I can tell. It's been out for awhile, I think. Would you happen to have more info about the upcoming Chu Han war series you mentioned? A link or a title in Chinese? Feng Shen Bang's a bit more fantasy than what I was originally thinking of, though the new one looks promising.

    tinac: San Guo again, but out of curiosity, I'll try looking into Ren Quan's old series. It sounds interesting.

    Suet Seung: Is it called 孙子兵法? Sounds good, though it might be hard for me to find since it seems kind of old.

    Lady Zhuge: Thanks for the suggestion and link. What did you think of the series?

    Thanks to all of you for the replies! I'd been thinking there weren't that many about this time period but I'm happy to find I was wrong.

    Oh yes, It is Jing Ke Chuan Qi.

    About the Chu Han one, it is called "Chu Han Feng Yun". It came out in March I think. Here's a link in Chinese abotu the synopsis: Chu Han Feng Yun

    It looks good to me. Jacqueline seems very suitable for Lui Chi. Because it just came out, picsof it and reviews may take a while. I'll post more if I come across anymore.

    Wang Gang's in it, a good sign. (I wonder if he'll ever get to play a non-evil character.) I'll be on the lookout for this one. Thanks, charbydis!

    He played Wang Cheng En in "Jiang Shan Feng Yu Qing" and he wasn't evil, but just not good!

    I haven't seen that particular series yet. I would think it's about the same as the one on the Spring and Autumn period (which I have seen and liked for the most part). Some stories are more interesting than others.

    Talking

    Yikes, I was just crusing about in the Baidu Chen bao Guo forum when i found out, aside from Damien Lau's version in "Warlords", there will also be two more Mainland series about the King of Yue, Gou Qian.

    《越王勾践》, starrring Chen Bao Guo, Bao An Guo (Cao Cao in ROTTK) and You Yong (pics of CBG as GQ here and of teh catress playing Xi Shi here ) But i think she looks quite old. Oh well, maybe the real thing would look much better!

    《卧薪尝胆》 with Chen Dao Ming as GQ and Hu Jun and the King of Wu, Fu Chai (no pics, but some brief info here and here ).

    Will post more if i find any! Both have just started filming!

    Gees, it is a popular story for 2006! Now I am in trouble, which one should I watch?

    My mum would kill me! and I will go broke! I think I might skip Damien's one, and rent Chen Bao Guo's one, then get Chen Dao Ming's one off a friend!

    Here are some better pics of Xi Shi and the rest of the cast .

    And Ady An (I think) is playing Xi Shi in Chen Dao Min's version.

    And doesn't Hu Jun look a bit unnatural here:

    Awesome, more action for this era! Thanks for updating. It's probably a bad thing I try to learn a bit of history from tv rather than from more credible sources...but it's better than nothing. I know some idioms from this time period about the wars and such, but didn't know of any related series to watch.

    I guess I don't really mean evil evil, but I feel bad for him always being cast against the heroes.

    Ady as Xi Shi? I don't mind her, but...it's Xi Shi we're talking about! Ady doesn't quite look the ancient beauty.

    hihi! I agree! But it was rumoured that the role was offered to Ady, don't think it is confirmed. I'll go and check.
