    The overall cast and costumes look good, but can someone tell me why joe's hair is curly in that strange pic?

    Lol... because Fu Chai's hair is curly, I guess!

    I watched the first two episodes and I like it so far.

    The palaces are so grand, I prefer the palaces during The Warring States Period, they're much better than Ming & Qing dynasty.

    Can't say much for the costumes, because fashion back then are much primitive. I remember watching one series about Qin Emperor, and it was cleavage baring for all the ladies! Whoa

    I actually Sonjia looks wuite good in here, i was quite worried that they were going to overdo her make up. But she looks too mature for Chen Kun. Chen Kun is !

    How is Sonija in her dancing scenes? i hope she has improved. She used to irk me with her dancing in PITNOL and WTLB!

    I think the costumes look very accurate, I think it is because Mianland is taking part in this. They usually have great costumes. Anyhow, I have seen Sung dramas with way too much cleavage and bare arms (remember Lady Wang in TLBB 03)?

    I like female cleavage and there's no such thing as showing too much of it.

    Haven't reach there yet (dancing). Right now she is just a simple village girl. In episode 1-2, she looked a bit haggard but in episode 3-4, she look beautiful.

    Mainland costumes are always better, though I can't say much for the hairstyles.

    Here's some random screencaps from episode 3-4 (Some spoilers)




    *Must watch scene, Wen Zhong (Power Chan) cried like there's no tomorrow*

    Zheng Dan & Xi Shi


    Teng Yue (Princess of Yue) and Lu Cheng (Crown Prince of Yue)


    Wu Zi Xu and Bo Pi


    Fan Li and Gou Jian as Fu Chai slaves

    I'm quite surprised that Luk Ying and his bodyguard manage to survive without food and water? How long have they been trapped underground?
    For a split second I thought the Princess will betray her nephew.

    There's also a humorous moment in episode 4 where Bo Pi presented Fu Chai with some dancers and Fu Chai told him:

    "Bo Pi, your flattery skills has improved a lot over the years. However... your taste (in women) seem to has degraded."

    Watch epi 1-2.

    Wow, the love between Fan Lai and Sai Si 'developed' so fast. First time met, already love so deeply. Fan Lai was the most ridiculous. Just saw Sai Si washing clothes, already so in love. Can I say 'shallow'? As for Sai Si, maybe it's the hug that caused the love feeling.

    Watch whole epi 1-2 already.

    I've to say that although the Fan Lai/Sai Si love thing is kinda shallow, my favourite character is still Fan Lai. He's so intelligence. I love how he made Fu Chai do as he wishes with reverse pyschology.

    This series is good, but the colouring resembles China production more than the colourful bright TVB production. Hope TVB usual audience will be able to accept it.

    For a second, I thought this series was produced by the ROCH06 producer Zhang Ji Zhong. What with all the still shots of Fan Lai with his hair down and in a cool pose?

    Yeah, the falling in love scene was kinda weird.

    All the men feel in love with Xi Shi because she was the most beautiful maiden in her time. Fan Li and Fu Chai both fell in love with her face.

    Don't worry, Fan Li and Xi Shi will go on date later, at least they have an understanding of each other.

    p.s. Watched episode 5-6. Fast huh?

    I wonder if the real Ngau Jin was this useless in real history. When the his part of the history (short english summary) I was pretty impressed with his perseverance and willing to stand so much humiliation to keep himself alive and wait for the opportunity to retaliate. But in here, it seems everything was Fan Lai's idea. Ngau Jin cannot do without Fan Lai. Fan Lai left and he lost his kingdom.

    Love the themesong. Not as good as the themesong of 'The Conqueror's Story' in terms lyrics, but still a song. Very 'hou hei'.

    《争霸传奇》主题曲
    作词:李斌 [音乐堂]
    作曲:李斌
    演唱:陈坤

    笑我疯癫 笑我痴狂
    对酒当歌 剑持四方
    生要做英雄 死亦为传奇
    大风起兮 梦飞扬
    有位佳人 在水一方
    有句誓言 永不能忘
    如今生死两茫茫
    视为知己 一腔热血在沙场
    笑我疯癫 笑我痴狂
    对酒当歌 剑持四方
    生要做英雄 死亦为传奇
    大风起兮 梦飞扬

    I especially like this part:

    笑我疯癫 笑我痴狂
    对酒当歌 剑持四方
    生要做英雄 死亦为传奇
    大风起兮 梦飞扬

    I still think she look the prettiest in Where the Legends Begin, but she's more refined in The Conquest.

    Some random screencaps in episode 5-6:

    Shows the humorous side of Fan Li


    Fu Chai's Queen, the Princess of Chai


    Fu Chai's son, Crown Prince You. He's quite cute looking, reminded me of Daniel Wu at certain angle.


    Fu Chai & Zheng Dan.

    I wanna watch. Got 3 of my fav. artists, Chen Kun, Joe Ma and Damien Lau.

    But it's not out where I am.

    Thanks for the screen caps but hey, Chen Kun's hair a bit too long. I don't think it enhance his handsome look.

    Should I watch it it Canto or Mando?

    I'm leaning more towards Mando because I don't like Sonija's voice, but I do like Damian's voice. However, I have never liked Canto dubs of Mandarin speakers (gosh, HWDD in Canto drove me up the wall, had to switch back to Mando! ). Can someone tell me how natural are the Canto and Mando dubs pls? Thanks.
