However, producer has published the opening of the series using the 1983 instrumental for music. The unofficial news is that the production team has changed their mind because they feel the song Từng Yu Ai (爱过谁) does not reflect the story and is also about YK/YH - the second male lead. No official words yet as to whether the song will be kept as insert or closing themesong or will be completely put aside.

    The article also mentions that a LOCH fangroup has attacked the weibo of both the songwriter and singer because they felt the song did not fit the series. They have since apologized.
    After listening to 爱过谁, I can understand that it's not a song befitting a legendary tale like LOCH. It does have a great opening, but the remaining of the song seems to be so disconnected from its own grand opening. Unlike the 80s songs where they had grand opening tones, and then even the tempo changed, they still maintained that grandness...

    So yes, I agree with the producers' decisions to change the Opening Theme to the instrumentals of "Iron Blood and Loyal Heart".

    By the way, is the director Jeffrey Chiang related to David Chiang? If so, Jeffrey might have been raised in the classic 80s tradition, hence his affinity with the 83 OST (not that others don't, but him particularly might have been so attached to it).

    爱过谁 - it sounds like a song from Zhou Xun's version? Can't remember whether it is the opening song?
    Using instrumentals of "Iron Blood and Loyal Heart" - but with no vocals? It's a bit strange. But then, if they change the vocals, they can get "sued" by the original singers/producers?

    No, I think the producers would have asked permissions from Roman Tam's (or his recording company) representative. The Iron Blood & Loyal Heart is such a big OST that a production like LOCH 2017 would not just rip it without permission. I do love it that the opening theme has no vocals. It feels grand, and I don't think we can find someone with the vocalisation of Roman Tam these days... not even Hu Ge...

    Doesn't Langya Bang (Nirvana in Fire) use non vocal opening theme as well? It suits the series well, IMO...

    Fascinating with the way they are promoting this series, they don't even post a thing about this show on their pages!

    I am surprised with just 1-2 days left, they saying nothing about this show widely.

    I checked Youtube: The original 1983 song is 2 mins but the current one about 1 min. On the other hand, it's fine since there is no voice.

    Pretty sloppy eh? (I meant the Drafon TV etc marketing)

    Oh I was wrong with the Langya Bang opening theme. This one below is the correct one, but it still was instrumental music instead of vocals. It was the same music as the one I previously uploaded, but the correct arrangement is this one below.

    Yes, producers tend to shorten the opening theme with some instrumentals. I think that was the case with Langya Bang too. Also some Western series (Spooks and Charmed came to mind) have the short, opening theme version and the longer version as well (not used in opening themes).

    Yep, Shediao hasn't posted anything as of this hour... oh, and it was amazing that you could create Weibo, Don Yu. Your Chinese must be very good then. I had to ask a Chinese friend of mine to create me a weibo, and i even used her AU phone number for that cos my number somehow doesn't work...

    I've watched almost all of the videos here. Thanks to everyone for the pics and videos! Really appreciate it

    Wow, they are using the 80's OST! That really bring back memories on my childhood, wahhhh .. I missed the 82 version!

    Anyway, I share the concern of Lenje , because, if you use that OST, then you have the burden to carry on the quality as well. The 82 version is classic and memorable. Plus, that OST was one of the highlights of LOCH plus ROCH 83 at once. It was played during cool scenes, especially battle scenes, and it really gave the heroic spirited vibes. Honestly, the trailer got me really interested in this, much more than before. But, the younger casts still got me worried .

    I'm still not impressed with Guo Jing. I agree with Riverlake that he was too cute and small as one. Judging from the pics, he looked way better without the bangs. Well, the more important thing is I hope he can show the heroic/noble/honest/innocent part of him well. Regarding Huang Rong, I'm still fine with her. This version has the look and the potential to show her bright and dark sides (although I haven't seen it in the trailer yet), so we'll just have to wait and see. No complaints on MNC, but I have doubts in Yang Kang again. I watched the clips on 82 version and that Yang Kang was too suave and handsome. He is the best one for me until now, and I haven't liked any other YK from other versions. Dunno how this one will be, since he didn't look charismatic in the trailer. And, how I feel toward Ouyang Ke should be the same as most people here. I hope he looked better after I watched him in the drama.

    And, I like the older casts and the colossal feel of some scenes. The Mongolian scenes looked okay, better than how I feel toward the 2008 version, but different than the 2003 version (the best one for colossal scenes and amazing views, IMHO). I still feel that MCF has too many accessories on her head (for a blind woman who lives alone in the wild), but oh well .. I didn't see that too much on the trailer and her fighting scenes looked cool. The 7 freaks looked great, and so did the priests and the 5 greats ( I think I missed the West Poison ? I should go back and rewatch the trailer). And this ZBT looked good here.
