    summary

    actors stay-in for 2 months physical combat training
    preparation 2 years
    script revised 34 times
    costume design redone 4 times
    indoor outdoor sets 326 location
    hand made props , 12000
    artificially "accelerated aging" the props , 3200
    filming 149 days
    artificial weather effects , 245 scenes
    mountain trekking 76km total
    water immersion (for camera crew) 100 hours
    actors jumping to water 68 scenes
    lead actors sword swingcount 30,000


    the director says most of the physical combat scenes are done personally

    That remains to be seen , in the first 8 episodes I spotted body doubles numerous times , visibly fatter face with reddish skin tone , it happens when rapid stylish swinging of the sword is required.

    The ending song shocks me It is so out of place. Reminds me of how scary the recent DGSD ending theme was.

    I think it's based on ancient poem or scripture , similar to the ending song for Gong1 (yang mi) back in 2011


    They tried to separate it into 3 segments of life , mature , young , really young ...
    I think it failed by using hip-hop to represent the middle

    hip-hip is external culture to China and weeks ago it was banned nationwide (on mass media) as unhealthy influence (together with excessive tattoos) due to a celebrity adultery scandal involving an actress and a hip-hop singer

    There's actually a lot to like about this series. 1. It's better paced than most Chinese series as I think they didn't have to strictly conform to a 60 episode order 2. Fight scenes mostly good except the atrocious opening scene 3. Changes to the story that mostly make sense (lightyears ahead of that abomination in 2013) 4. Characters seem mostly well cast Cons: 1. Still can't get away from the terrible editing that plagues most Chinese TV. Too many cuts in most scenes. 2. Music/Sound design. This one is the absolute worst. It's normally pretty bad in most Chinese shows where they for w/e reason every single scene has to have 'mood' music, but this show takes it to another level. I don't think they have anything original, it's just licensed generic crap. And I think there was one episode where they have two different tracks running concurrently. I even heard the Game of Thrones opening in one scene. So ridiculous. I feel like they didn't pay their sound editor and he was just ****ing with them. Overall I'll definitely continue watching unless they do something stupid with the story.

    Questions I have to-date
    1. Why was Lan Fenghuang's hair able to turn black again? (Actually she looks better with white hair. :-)
    2. Was 2nd sis under spell when she killed 3rd sis? If so, how did she realize her mistake with the need to commit suicide.
    3. In Ep 10, why did LHC leave the house?

    1) not explained


    2) the "puppet" spell came from the intruder guy , the spell is broken when the spellcaster is dead , she realized what she done (through memory) and the only way to atone is not living ..... the name of the puppet spell is same as what Yang Guo used in ROCH front part of the story during a 3vs3 match


    3) he said that he doesn't want to die anywhere near the book , because the others would cook up stories he died anyway (too late) while learning a stolen book

    Thanks, krabs.
    1) Maybe it is due to the blood transfusion with DFBB.

    It seems as if nobody is truly evil in this story

    ZuoLengChan just stood there watching LanFengHuang consume her booster pill

    This mysterious black robe just want to prove to DongFang Big Bro and RenWoXing that she can accomplish something big too just like them.

    I don't understand how she appear in 2 places simultaneously .... abducting RYY to fight LHC and shadowing DongFang+LanFH

    It's weird that DFBB isn't OP or a dude with no dick. If I were to guess, he eventually falls for LFH, she dies suddenly (probably to RWX), he gets mad and cuts his knob off to become op after he gets PXJF and tries to take over the world. And then later RWX becomes the bad guy.

    It wasn't her that fought LHC, it was her servant Shangguan dude. She later asks how her servant lost when she taught him a bit of kuai hua bao dian.

    Tbh, I really don't give a shit about DFBB/LFH. Neither of them are interesting and they just run in around in circles talking love zzzz. The reveal of the masked lady wasn't that exciting either, it sort of just happened and they moved onto the next scene. It's really interesting how they paced this though, feels like we've gotten to the RWX part super quickly. Some bits feel a bit rushed but I like the fast pace. No shitty love triangle like the 2013 version either. It's interesting that they've got like no CGI in fights. It's just actors "sparring", makes DG9J seem kinda meh in terms of power levels but it also means there's no shitty CGI in fights which I hate.

    Really like the actress that plays RYY; she cute af and looks a bit like Krystal from f(x). Don't really care for LHC still. Gimme more of that RYY and get her out of shaolin asap babyyy

    Why are DFBB and LFH visiting the "Tong" guy?

    I think these promo graphics are way too late , they should have done it 1-2 weeks before the series begun













    I like their earlier scene using the wooden doll to depict the Qi moving through LHC
