    Default If wuxia characters were to come to life and watch adaptations of their adventures...

    Imagine that various wuxia characters, whose lives were exactly as portrayed by the wuxia novelists who created them, came to life and were transported to modern times. While in the here and now, they are shown various film and television adaptations of their adventures. How do you think various wuxia characters would react to their depictions in these movies and TV programs? What actors do you think the characters would enjoy seeing portray them? What complaints might they have about the way they are depicted in these films and shows?

    Xiao Long Nu and Wang Yu Yan : "Why do we look alike in all adaptations? But they are all pretty. "

    "What the....who made MRB defeat me?" tap tap

    It'd be interesting seeing ZBT's reaction to the non-JY movie where he becomes a tranny attracted to WCY.

    Yi Deng and Ouyang Feng will vomit blood after seeing the 2 Tony Leungs' potrayal of them in The Eagle Shooting Heroes.

    In almost all cases, Xiao Feng will go, 'Yeah, *****! That's how I roll and own!'

    ZWJ after watching 2000 HSDS: "FFS I'm not that old and useless!"

    ZWJ after watching 2003 HSDS: "WTF is everyone calling that midget girly man Wuji?"

    Yang Kang would kill himself after watching LOCH 03. So would MRF after the new DGSD. Same reason: "My face does NOT look like a dropped pie!"
    "Anything you can't say NO to is your MASTER, and you are its SLAVE."

    Yang Guo: Umm people, it was my right arm...Not my left arm!!! Leave my left arm intact.

    Chow Ba Thung: Hmm, this guy is someone I think I want to be brothers with.

    Golden Wheel Monk: This guy is so pathetic. The real me would have whooped Little Dragon Girl's butt in seconds. Yang Guo being on my level? Come on, what is up with all the BS. (Of course, Golden Wheel Monk is still BSing in real life!!!)

    WYY: No offense to any of the girls, but I have not seen anyone being able to be on par with me yet in looks.

    He will also say, "D*mn, that's how I died?" Luckily for him there is no more Liu and Sung war potential, so Xiao Feng can remain in the modern world.

    XYE and HWQ will wonder why Dicky and Nick are 15 yrs apart in age and why all their love interests died. HWQ will be sad and join the association of gender equality; and XYE will sign up for the next adaptation of Wei Xiao Bao to taunt 7+ girls.

    XLN will realize that a TV set will be great addition to the tomb but otherwise won't really care about the modern times.

    Yang Guo and Chor Lau Heung will glide to Taiwan using their hiqong to rip apart Richie Ren (i like richie but the serials were....)

    Mrs. Ma (in DGSD) will join asian cast of Desperate Housewives.

    Han Bo will shout "Hei! why did my wife end up with Feng Xing Lie?!! Who wrote the script?!"

    Note: Han Bo and Feng Xing Lie are characters from Huang Yi's Fu Yu Fan Yun.

    "What's with all the flying and explosions?"
    忽见柳荫下两个小孩子在哀哀痛哭,瞧模样正是武敦儒、武修文兄弟。郭芙大声叫道:「喂,你们在干甚麽?」武 修文回头见是郭芙,哭道:「我们在哭,你不见麽?」

    Wei Xiao Bao: "Woo hoo. I'm as good-looking as Yang Guo . Zhang Ji Zhong is an awesome producer. "

    Yang Guo would probably kill himself. "I'm THAT annoying?!"

    Seriously, every adaptation i watched did not capture the character of Yang Guo...

    Guo Jing would be "Who is that tall person with my name and adventures?"
    Burying his Dugu 9 Jian manual under an epitaph, Dugu Qiubai felt he has left his legacy for the next generation. He then moved to Shaolin to study Buddhism, sweep floors and tap elite fighters.

    Was Gwok Jing supposed to have been especially short? None of the actors who've portrayed him have been especially tall.
