    Post Wang Yuyan - third compared to Princess Fragrance & Xiao Longnu in terms of beauty?

    Princess Fragrance and Xiao Longnu are two of the most beautiful woman in the Jin Yong world.

    How would Wang Yuyan fare?

    I think Chen Yuan Yuan also...(Yes she's old) but I still remember the description of when We Xiao Bao saw her. Totally mesmerized. She must be godly beautiful if she's 10 years younger.

    She ages. Unlike little dragon.

    And judging from adaptations, Xiao Long Nu = Wang Yu Yan.

    She used the knowledge she had to rediscover TSTL's kungfu, improved it with kung fu from all other sects and became the baby XLN.
    Burying his Dugu 9 Jian manual under an epitaph, Dugu Qiubai felt he has left his legacy for the next generation. He then moved to Shaolin to study Buddhism, sweep floors and tap elite fighters.

    I feel XLN's description in the book is more beautiful than WYY's.

    Well, if you are looking at the adaptations, then of course XLN=WYY because the 2 latest ROCH and DGSD both had the same actress!

    Actually, it's 3.

    80's WYY and XLN - Idy Chan
    90's WYY and XLN - Carmen Lee
    00's WYY and XLN - Liu Yi Fei.

    And thus, we can scientifically conclude WYY = XLN.

    From what I hear, Princess Fragrance is first, SLL is second (barely ahead of WYY), WYY is third...4th and 5th I thought would be Chen Yuan Yuan and Purple Robe Dragon King respectively.

    Princess Fragrance was able to stop an entire army cold with her looks.

    Little Dragon Girl inspired the complete obssession of at least four men (Yeung Gor, Wan Tze Ping, Gung Sheun Tze, Fok Do), and even those who were not madly in love/lust with her admired her beauty.

    Wong Yu Yin had one stalker (Deun Yu) and a male cousin (Mo Yung F'uk) who didn't seem to give a crap about her despite her utter devotion to him.

    Something tells me that while Wong Yu Yin was definitely good looking, she was outclassed in this department by Princess Fragrance and Little Dragon Girl.

    How did Central Mischief Chow Ba Thung treat Little Dragon Girl in the novel? Based on ROCH83, even he had a liking of this beauty. Did he feel comfortable around her, or is he in love with her abilities: bees control, sleeping on rope, able to draw a square with one hand and circle on the other?

    I got the impression that he has no romantic interest in her whatsoever, but he does like the nifty tricks she can do and that she's less obviously abrasive than other women that he's known (i.e. Wong Yung, Ying Goo). Perversely, perhaps, Little Dragon Girl annoys me more than Wong Yung and Ying Goo put together.

    Can we apply the appearance deterioration theory to TV adaptations just like the martial arts deterioration theory in Wuxia? I think Idy is the best looking lady, Carmen looks decent, and LYF's looks are a dime a dozen. I don't want to sound arrogant but in college, I could easily have gotten chicks that look like LYF and in my opinon, she doesn't come anywhere close to what I imagine XLN would look like.

    lol, I actually feel it's the other way around. The farther we go back, the uglier. Besides, JY did say that LYF is the "closest" to the XLN he has in mind.

    What the heck? I just read this week a recent review of Andy Lau's ROCH adaptation and it was specifically mentioned that JY thinks that Idy is the best XLN ever. I guess JY just kisses the butt of whoever is working in one of his adaptations. It's too bad that we didn't go to college together, I could have easily hooked you up with a Liu Yi Fei level chick.

    Jin Yong specifically wanted Liu Yi Fei to play Xiao Long Nu. Also, that 'Idy = best XLN' comment was quite long ago, before TLBB04 was made. At that time, I don't think he knows who Liu Yi Fei is.

    Yes, you are correct. Idy is the BEST XLN. In other words that she ACTED the closest and best to the XLN JY intended.

    But LYF was said by JY to be the CLOSEST XLN. In other words, LYF is closest to the IMAGE of XLN in his mind.

    I suppose beauty standards back then and now are different. We can't say women back then are ugly compared to today. Idy was considered very beautiful back then as XLN.

    That sounds like the young generation looks better than the older ones.
