    Well, dont know, but 2013 and 2021 Demi got low ratings and the first got axed from tv station after the first arc. XZ arc was completely removed and unaired. Current one might receive same faith with headline saying is the worst Demi adaption in 40 years. Really? Was Eddie kwan version respectably held in high regard in Taiwan. Taiwan after Demi 1983, stop importing hk and start making their Own Wuxia even asking Adam cheung to play CLX again. There was also a movie with Norman tsui in the 80s and Frankie lam in the 90s. This one does have the weakest XF.

    They edited out most of the contents from the last few episodes of Demi. There should be 56 episodes total if not mistaken. Might be nostalgic people used praised 1980 version. Dont know if post links, but tvb anywhere YouTube posted all the episodes in original language for free with ads. Tried to watch it. It doesnt hold up well. The actings is still there, but fighting choreography and slow motion punching and kicking movement/sounds effects isnt that reminiscing. Theres a lot of emotion swing where XF was extremely depress, but alright by next scene because script dictate it. It might be based on early jinyong edition since he doesnt start humanize and flesh out the characters in more moral ambiguous later on. Heard he even took a long vacation and his friend helped him wrote a few chapters. The worst adaption kicks in in the last few episode of XZ saga where MRB kills sweeper monk and suddenly can controlled Xiaolin with a jade staff like beggar sect. Isnt this a worse change of story than crimson saber, flying fox, and heaven sword in 99/00 Tvb. Was demi ever that popular to begin with since tvb and their fans always reference loch/roch as a duology? Recent years the 97 version does get more praises from mainland China. The early 2000s adaption of JY novels does get a lot of love here, but dont think they can draw crowds with all violence blood and gore. The swordman change of ending was brutal. The reason JY novels is failing is probably they adapt them way too close to previous adaption. If ten years is a new gen, then roch15 is still probably many new younger audience first taste of jinyong tv.

    The idol aspect and fresh faces help launch or improve their career. The leads of loch17 is working like an insane workaholic leading project after project even hsds cast is held in some regard. The roch15 and swordman13 are already decently known and famous in movie or Taiwan tv for a while, but the couple effects help them rejuvenate their career. Dont know about Janice man and rest here. They might pretend they never filmed this and scrub off their filmography if can.

    Ok
    conversation between DY and MWQ in ep 47 was by far the most ridiculous conversation I'm ever seen
