    Default Sor Goo: good-looking or ugly?

    In the LEGEND OF THE CONDOR HEROES '82 TVB series, TVB casted a rather attractive actress to play the role of Sor Goo (which she reprised in RETURN OF THE CONDOR HEROES a year later). In a late 1990s comics adaptation of LOCH, however, Sor Goo was drawn to look absolutely hideous...without a doubt the most unattractive-looking female in the story (yes, even more than Mui Chiu Fung). Which is accurate?

    Sor Goo was never described as being either pretty nor ugly. Upon her appearance, JY's wrote "...from inside the house a young girl about 17 or 18 years-old stepped out, her hair in disarray..."

    And after HR took a good look at her, she only saw that "on the palm of her hands were full of dirt, her long fingernail were dirty; who knows how many months it has been when she last wash her face or hands."

    No mention about her looks.
    I would love to change the world, but they won't give me the source code.

    Seriously man, there are plenty of English translations around these days, you should forget all the TVB shit you watch... so inaccurate it's not funny. Mei Chao Feng was beautiful. Evil doesn't necessarily translate to ugliness.

    If so, how is it so hard to judge that Princess Fragrance is much more beautiful, based on the description?

    Oh, no, Sorgoo in 1982 version was quite plain. In my opinions, she cannot be categorised as beautiful or even "rather attractive". She is just a bit better than QQR's younger sister.
