    I don't know. I just started reading "Flying Swallow Startling Dragon" (aka "Mythical Crane Magic Needle"). I'll let you know after I read more.

    As for different versions, it's like Jin Yong's novel having 3 editions. I read somewhere before that WLS changed the name because Bak Wan Fei's original name does not sound nice in Cantonese. So, he change the name for HK publication. Maybe he also felt that the original is too long and thus want to make it more compact? Bak Wan Fei's original name is Chu Yeuk Lan, sounds a bit like 'rotten pork meat'.

    Anyway, no matter the lacking in storyline, I find that his writing style is very poetic. It gives reader a beautiful imagery when reading it. At least, for me it is.

    I haven't read this novel for years, does that mean if the version I read there is a Bak Wan Fei than I am reading the new version?
    Currently in love with Bae Suzy...for superficial reasons.

    Most probably. So far, I have not seen a version where only names change, but, text remains same.

    Based on the discussion from the previous posts, my understanding is Wo Long Sheng rewrote everything including the characters names.
    Part 1
    飛燕驚龍 (old version) -> 新仙鶴神針 (new version)
    Part 2
    風雨燕歸來 (old version) -> ???? (new version)

    Is there anyone know the name of 2nd part (new version) in Chinese? Or link to read raw?
    Sorry, I am asking about the books even though this forum is about TV series.
    Thanks millions!!! ....
