This is the first chapter of Jin Yong (Louis Cha)'s famous trilogy which also includes "Return of the Condor Heroes" (Shen Diao Xia Lu) and "Heaven Sword and Dragon Sabre" (Yi Tian Tu Long Ji). Legend of the Condor Heroes (She Diao Ying Xiong Zhuan/Sia Tiauw Eng Hiong) is a story that deals with a lot of issues but mostly concerned with the adventure of Kwok Jing and Wong Yung, the two people who ended up creating the Heaven Sword and Dragon Sabre which would become the major issue in "Heaven Sword and Dragon Sabre". Kwok Jing, the hero of the story, is an honest, loyal, and brave man even if he is a slow learner and not very clever. Because of his kindness, however, he is often manipulated by many people, especially by his Godbrother, Yeung Hong .

Wow! This is really great stuff! This is a romantic story, full of action (MARTIAL ARTS OF COURSE), and well, actually it´s a bit of everything..... Felix Wong (Kwok Ching), for instance, looks very, well uhhmm... not-so-smart and yet, it takes only one glimpse of him to see that he is the hero of the story. Anyway, he acts very naturally.
It´s really a pity that the other main character (yes, I consider her as a main character!) Yung Meiling (Wong Yung) died a couple of years after this series was made, since she was such an intelligent and beautiful young lady (She would have been in her 40´s by now???)
The sequel to this series, Return of the the condor heroes, focuses on the son of Yang Hong (one of the villains of The condor heroes). He is played by ........ Andy Lau!!! He plays a good guy though.
This series is also very good, but it features more moments of laughter than the first one (which was actually quite a tearjerker at times).
You 'll love this!!!!
