    Default Who is supposedly the best looking Jin Yong character (male and female)?

    Which character was supposedly the most attractive? I keep thinking it's Duan Yu's father for all his mistresses out there.

    The general consensus is that it was Princess Fragrance from BOOK & SWORD: GRATITUDE & REVENGE, whose beauty actually halted an army in its tracks.

    I think that kind of hyperbole is codswallop myself, but it's canon.

    No disrespect here to Duan Yu's father, but he is like sh**. Duan Yanqing doesn't have any physical traits or features that we could say he's good looking... Oh wait, do you meant Duan Zhengchun?

    Mainland China is making a new adaptation now. Dunno who their going to cast as Princess Fragrance.

    The strange thing is, the actresses who were chosen to potray this beauty who halted an army were not not really that gorgeous. They paled in comparison to the actresses who potrayed Xiao Long Nv.

    Now, who in the real world is the most suitable actress to portray Princess Fragrance?

    I would say Fan Bing Bing.

    The best looking guy has to be DFBB's boyfriend, Yang Lianting. That guy is able to magnetize a twisted man!

    Im not sure why but Fan BingBing just does not strike me as that pretty... She has her moments, but not much to sustain interest (unlike ppl like Alyssa Chia).

    They are casting Yang Mi as the new Princess Fragrance. . .great choice, I say!

    Best Jin Yong looking character, both male and female?

    FEMALE: Princess Fragrance

    MALE: Would probably be between the father and son duo of the Yangs (Yang Kang and Yang Guo)

    Xiao Long Nu was described as pale and thin, so I imagine she would be beautiful in a way reminiscent of modern super models, i.e., very thin.

    In Jin Yong literature, are there female characters that would extoll the standard of beauty found in the Tang dynasty? I.e. fat is better?

    Lin Xian Er's curvaceous figure would have caught the eyes of Li Shimin

    The best looking guy has to be DFBB's boyfriend, Yang Lianting. That guy is able to magnetize a twisted man!
    Good point! I was thinking about examples of the second male standard of beauty, the rugged handsomeness type, the first being the bishonen type (pretty boys like Zhang Wujior Yang Kang). If you look like your mother... then yeah you are a pretty boy.

    I was thinking of some Three Kingdoms generals being described in a positive light in the official records, such as Guan Yu and Taishi Ci, but Yan Liangting exemplifies the rugged handsomeness look in JY literature.

    More like Helen of Troy and Chen Yuan Yuan.

    One launched a thousand ships, the other opened the gates to a thousand mile wall.

    Actually, Yang Lianting was described as a big, rough-looking fellow. Sort of like Xiao Feng, except without the heroic aura, without the martial arts, and the whole banging a shemale thing.
    Blademaster. Hero. General. He was the best there ever was.
    Butcher. Murderer. Traitor. All that he loved, he had destroyed.

    Luckily, JinYong never take the trouble to describe the shemale banging scene

    Females that are up there on the list:

    Xiao Long Nu
    Wang Yuyan
    Chen Yuanyuan
    A Ke
    Princess Fragrance

    As for guys, I'd say Yang Guo, Yang Kang, Duan Yu, and some others that I can't remember.

    Not bad, quite a great choice. But she will have to gain some weight. She's a bit thin.
