wow. thats really...extravagant for a DVD case.

So pretty... Sort of like a mini photobook by itself.
This new Chang Buchi looks ugly and bad looking. I like the women actresses. Is this worth a buy?
Wow, such a nice DVD set. I want one too. All the cast look great on the case, seems like HSDS2009 is really making it big hit so far. Does anyone know if the actual DVD set have the uncut scenes like the one where ZM hides from ZWJ after seeing him and ZZR and the part near the end at Mt. Wudang with the doves. I really wanted to see those scenes.
I kind of think it's sad that they included Liu Shi Shi on the cover instead of Zhu'er. Liu Shi Shi's role really small in HSDS and did not deserve to be on the cover... there were so many roles that were a bigger part of the story, like Yin Susu and Zhang Cui Shan, Mei Jue, a lot of the Ming group, etc... From looking at the cover/ the size of the pic I would have though Liu Shi Shi had some major role in the series.
I was happy though that the themesong had most of the cast in it in HSDS. It included all the leads. I was so surprised when I had seen the ROCH opening and all it had was Yang Guo (HXM) and Xiao Long Nu (LYF) plus like a few random clips of like 3 other people, one being Zhang Zhi Zong himself (I was like seriously? That character is tiny... and he gets a shot in the song when almost no one else does). - Random babble but the situation reminded me of the situation in this cover where bigger characters get shafted over characters that have like 3 min screen times, just bc they are famous or something.
It's such false advertising and so often done in Chinese series.
This DVD with english subtitle or just Mando or canto?
and Yea y Liu Shi shi...but i think she is quite famous compare to other actress/actor...
Considering that my poor old memory cannot hold 3-4 pages worth of thread at 7mins to midnight, I shall leave direct quote responses for another post.
Hmm...responding to what I can remember...
Based on the novel, the reasons for why ZWJ had to marry ZZR were nothing short of ridiculous. Yes, traditional social etiquette kept people's body space sacred, but in the Wuxia realm, people were not supposed to be so 'Po Po, Ma Ma'. From ZWJ's skill anyway, I can't see how he couldn't of affected the acupoints through pure energy (Duan royal family, HYS, Yang Guo all worked it out) or use a tool? I'm sure ZWJ would be aware of acupuncture, and that the point of acupuncture is nothing but a tool to direct the influence of energy from the practitioner.
XX's influence? Well, for all those who have read the novel, and if JY hasn't since altered the fact that
Lu Liu Shan Zhuang...I was definitely most satisfied with HSDS09 version. The fight matched the novel - I always wondered when would they ever show ZM's dexterity - maybe except for the slow-mo limbo part. After rewatching the scenes, I see ZM's flirting as a bit of a ploy. She knows full well that she cannot compare with ZWJ in MA skill, so she decided to put in a bit of a psychological game into the fighting. It's obvious ZWJ is the soft-hearted type...playing on that is smart, if not daring though.
I loved, loved ZM's ambidextrous fighting, as short as it was. It's so wonderful to be able to use sword ambidextrously...as I've recently had the pleasure to try out .
I've also wondered it rather contrived that ZWJ would come back with just ZM's obvious fake suicide attempt...the fake stabbing was more convincing.
I like how the lighting created depth and space for the 'dungeon'. When ZM is looking up into the light, I found it highlighted her features and white attire in an almost angelic way.
It was funny how ZM noted how nervous ZWJ was when he first tried to threaten her, and then her shamelessly using this to her advantage.
Er...blood point? Yong Quan point...why this point is supposed to cause uncontrollable laughter/ticklishness is beyond me - it actually is used for grounding (by martial art and Chinese Med standards), so a reversion would, I think, cause dizzy/vertigo, or possibly blackout - haven't found a good guinea pig to try that out though . This reminds me, after recently watching HSDS87, I noticed how ZWJ just plainly tickles ZM's foot. This annoyed me to no end.

The DVD cover doesn't look like it'll have Canto dub... time to brush up Mandarin again. I reached DVD 6 of 7 in Chinese Paladin 3 before I realised it had a Canto option... now I'm torn between starting again in Canto and just finishing it. Maybe the Malaysian HSDS version will have Canto dub..
Can someone give me information on where to download this series because the download on baidu only gives me 2minute files for some strange reason
if u want the hd version, go for torrent: http://www.in9.cn/read.php?tid=578521

Can someone tell me how this ugly Chang BuChi perform ? all actresses look good but the actor is bad looking.
As for the DVDs, I'll wait for the full version to come out.
Hopefully, there will be some additional scenes in HSDS DVDs since there are 16 DVDs for the full version on YesAsia.
How's the quality? I never tried buying parallel imports from BlueMax for dramas.
