    I like Mak Lai Hung too ever since I see her in this serie, but I like her even more in Heroic Legend. A really versatile actress with good acting skills.

    This serie is good, but the special effects were lousy, I mean, all the fighting just use explosions. And how I wish the main guy got to be with Bak Wan Fei, her character was the best here 'though not the face.
    When I wake up in the morning I always remind myself to 'Seize the Day.'

    li chi leug is adorably cute, all the cast member had their most fufillan role in this
    film, my opinion. there will not be a series like this, all characters justified in their role. This is a large scale epic bypassing, surpassing any series with its romance, fight
    power, strong, deep storyline. I think i saw chow young fat's face in this??

    beautiful 5/5

    my favorite character is Bak Wan Fei too...but i never finish the film, i read the book and totally loved her character, but when i read the ending i was so pissed off i never read it again. hence when i made the connection between the film and the book i stopped watching.

    Bak Wan Fei in the book was alot cooler then from wat i saw of the film. she wasn't always kinda moppy. she was always a very 'cool & calm' character.

    eric's couple wasn't in the book either, and the story line was changed alot. and the young martial sister of the main guy wasn't as annoying. Yvone Hong's character didn't play that big a part in the novel. she was a constant companion of Bak Wan Fei and a bit on the naive side.

    she and Yvonne returned to the kings side to help aid him in court matters. she had a leagence of followers too. i did never understand if her martial arts was better or the main guy was better. but she was alot smarter then him.

    don't know wat she saw in him. he wasn't tat good a catch. the guy never knew she liked him, he really admired her in a hero ship kind of way. he thought she was one of the smartest and most honorable person he met.

    there was this part in the book when she stood infront of many people in the wulin world and talked them down. it was very cool.

    her character was made out to be very perfect, but so was the younger martial sister, she had the whole thing going on with her being so cute and nice that no one had the heart to hurt her.

    i will never understand why guys liked her and not Bak Wan Fei, i recall Bak Wan Fei being alot prettier, although she did dress in men's clothing through out.

    if anyone has the chance they should read the book. i liked it alot more then the film.

    forgot to add that the reason i hated the ending was because the main guy upset Bak Wan Fei so she would leave his side and return to the palace. she was pissed of at the king for the death of her mother.

    i thought the ending would have been alot better if the author made her decide to return on her own account, not putting the main guy in to say all that harsh words to her. she was going to return to the palace it was just she didn't really want to leave him so she kept delaying her departure. totally out of character.

    Many guys have inferiority complex. They don't like their women smarter than them.

    Maybe I'll try read this after I finish XKX. This author seems not as famous as Jin Yong, Go Long and Liang Yu Sheng. I wonder why. Hardly anyone dicussed his works in the wuxia forums.

    i read two of his books and liked a certain character in te books but not the story itself and never te ending.

    maybe thats why, his main characters aren't outstanding, the plot is so so and the ending to me was a cop out.

    i remember this series from watching it a long long time ago. i think i still have it on vhs. it was one of the few atv serials i ever watched. it was good and quite fast paced, not like a lot of those draggy overacted serials that atv is sorta known for. but as i remember, the ending wasn't that satisfying. and it seemed like they borrowed quite a bit from other serials.

    the baddie guy died, that younger villian got killed by that girl by falling down a high cliff area, fei fong realised the guy didnt love her so she left with kingdom to find kingdoms si shu to heal her, leaving the main guy with his si mei to get married.

    eric and tiffany <-- is that her name? also went back to the place with the main couple and also decided to get married. on the wedding day.. bak wen fei comes over to give them gifts and her blessing then they see fei fong so they followed her out and realised she is now healed and is happy and she is keeping xiu dip company. .. i think its one of the better ending... alot of shows nowaday have shocking endings so i was happy about the ending!!!

    i remember this series now...i remember hating the junior martial sister of the main guy...she was soooo useless and helpless and boring...incredibly boring. i honestly cannot see what the main guy ever saw in her when the other girls in the story were more interesting and so much better looking too...didn't like this series for that one factor...useless female lead. blah.

    tiffany & eric were so cute. & how tiffany was falling in love with teh girl, who dressed up as a guy. :]

    I love this series its still one of my favourites!! I like the story, themesongs and characters. I watched it about five times already.

    I later watched the movie version but the characters and how they relate to each other are different, like Yeuk Siu happens to be Cho Hung's sister. did anyone watch the movie version?
