    He seems to be most active in Taiwan and mostly in modern, but I don't watch Taiwanese dramas. For his Mainland work, I've only seen Rouge Snow and CP3 in which he played not-so-appealing characters. Hopefully he will make his Strange Hero character his signature role.

    ^^He said himself that there was a time when he was asked to do a LOT of Taiwan idol dramas and didn't really care about them but agreed anyway. That's why I'm not watching any of them.
    I thought he was okay in CP3 and I haven't seen Rouge Snow.
    Other than than, I've seen Detective Tang Lang (which is currently my favourite series) and Xin Yi Jian Mei (which I'm watching right now).

    ^The series hasn't come out yet.

    More news on Strange Hero:
    http://yule.sohu.com/20101214/n278292617.shtml

    Translation (something like this):
    Chinese martial arts series Strange Hero Yi Zhi Mei will premiere on Shenzhen Satellite TV and Fujian Southeast TV. This drama, which brings together Wallace Huo, Liu Shi Shi, Ma Tianyu, Edwin Siu, Shi Yan, and many other popular stars, has ignited a lot of anticipation among audiences with its preview and ratings are expected to be high. Strange Hero will also be broadcasted on CTV in Taiwan in January 2011. The drama will offer a fresh take on the famous Yi Zhi Mei stories, with smartly choreographed martial arts guaranteed to marvel the audience.

    A New Hero for today's generation

    Strange Hero Yi Zhi Mei will follow Tangren's signature style of producing exquisite, beautiful costumes and an upbeat, fairytale setting. But compared to past series, Strange Hero will be a new type of martial arts drama for today's generation, offering exciting martial arts action against breathtaking scenes of beautiful lakes and mountains. Wallace Huo, who plays the male lead, says that the director will add many new, exciting elements and twists to the Yi Zhi Mei stories. Indeed, the martial arts action will be double that of the original stories. The drama will be divided into modules, with each module telling a new compelling short story closely linked with the main storyline. These stories will gradually come together in the concluding segment.

    Preview has generated a lot of excitement

    While Strange Hero's star cast have garnered attention since the start of filming, cinematic previews of the series held in Beijing and Shanghai for invited guests from the media and film industry have generated a lot of excitement. This is the first time a TV drama was previewed at cinemas and is likely to set a precedent for future dramas. The cinematic screening effects were amazing, offering the high-definition picture quality of a Hollywood blockbuster. The preview had the audience on the edge of their seats, with cliff hangers and twists which had viewers gasping for more.



    So not to worry about not living up to expectations. Looks like you will get what you saw on the preview (plus Karen didn't re-arrange/mutilate it like Tian Ya).

    How come it sounds different from the song Hu Ge sang in the studio? But the MV looks FAB!!! I love how they integrated the comic book sequences with the martial moves. Oooohh!

    oh i like the theme song! i've always liked HG's voice and even though it is a little too poppy sounding, most LGL productions have more poppy, modern-sounding tracks anyway. i'm used to it by now

    Overall, I love the opening theme, but there were little bits that bothered me. For example, in the beginning it sounded like Hu Ge's voice couldnt quite reach the lower notes (this is what 10+ years of piano lessons do to you =P)....and does anyone else find the sound effects (explosions, impacts, etc) a little too overpowering?

    Dont get me wrong...I do love the song, and actually took the time to convert the Youtube studio recording video into an mp3 so I could listen to it on my iPod =)

    Any idea if they are going to release an official mp3 version of this?

    Not a peep!

    Maybe it's not true? We got the publicity event news from Edwin's blog(don't know if it's reliable), and I found it odd that there's no announcement from the official Strange Hero or Karen's weibo. However, there were news that the Conference for December 20 in Shanghai may be true since Strange Hero will be broadcast on Jiangsu Arts TV on the December 22th! A week earlier then we thought. Here's proof...

    Not all are broadcast on TV. Anyway, sometimes pics take some time before they are broadcasted on the public channels.

    Actually, could be my bad translation *sheepish*. 18 Dec refers to a "meet the fans" session at Nanning, not so much publicity/press event. And I think it's Edwin's own fan meet session - LSS not involved.


    Anyway, do go to Sina to vote for your most anticipated period drama:
    http://vote.t.sina.com.cn/vid=73617


    At the moment, Ruby's Qing Shi Huang Fei is leading the pack with 59% of votes. Strange Hero is 2nd with 23%, Bu Bu and Mei Ren Tian Xia are tied with 13%, Gong comes next with 11%....

    Wow!! So many great series coming up next year! FOUR of them are Qing series - New Huan Zhu Ge Ge, Bu Bu Jing Xin, Gong Suo Xin Yu, Hou Gong Zhen Huan. And all have to do with Emperor Yongzheng! Bu Bu and Gong are about him just before he becomes emperor, Hou Gong is about his reign, New Huan Zhu Ge Ge is about his son!!

    Now I'm really hyped for Qing Shi Huang Fei and Strange Hero. But more Qing Shi as it's going to be this really large and expensive production. Strange Hero - well I know Iljimae like the back of my hand, so let's see how different they will do it.
