CC and PJ:
Although you guys previously told me that SWORD GOD Zhuo Bufan did not appear in DGSD '81, I think there's a slight chance that he (or at least, another character based loosely upon him) might have shown up in that adaptation.
SWORD GOD Zhuo Bufan only appeared in the chapter where Mo Yung F'uk, Ding Chun Chou, and the 72 Islands, 36 Caves (or vice-versa) guys attacked Ling Jau Gung, correct? And as his title implies, he was mostly known as a swordsman, correct? Well, although nobody in DGSD '81 went explicitly by the name of SWORD GOD Zhuo Bufan and accomplished those feats that you guys have quoted time and again from the novel, there was one character who was part of the assault team against Ling Jau Gung in DGSD '81 with the Cantonese surname "Cheuk." If I remember correctly, the Cantonese pronunciation of "Zhuo" is something like "Cheuk." Moreover, this "Cheuk" guy in DGSD '81 was apparently a sword specialist. His weapon was a sword, and he was cutting down the Ling Jau Palace guards more efficiently than anybody else there other than Mo Yung F'uk.
Do you think this "Cheuk" character was meant to be SWORD GOD Zhuo Bufan?
