The Legend of the Condor Heroes 2015: New Leads?

This is an update from last time’s post. Go here to check it out. Again, I know Baidu is NOT a reliable source for news since it’s like Wiki in a way. But it’s the other slim source I could get my hands on. The supposed leads are Wei Qian Xiang for Guo Jing and Zhang Rui as Yang Kang. The role of Huang Rong’s at a toss between Zhang Meng and Wu Qian. The rest of the characters are unknown still. The total episode is listed as 56. No surprise since it’s a long story and most of the series nowadays are like that anyway. I’m not going to pick on them for it.

Okay, so somewhat of new development. (Or I’m just plain late again, lol.) But honestly, if it’s a toss between Zhang Meng and Wu Qian, I would say I want to see Wu Qian in the role. Not that I don’t like Zhang Meng, but I just don’t see her as Huang Rong. Wu Qian has this freshness to her and how she has taken on a variety of roles that allow me to see her range. Of course, more waiting, but something to be excited about? (Or not, lol.)

  1. I’m with you, would definitely pick Wu Qian if it is between her and Zhang Meng for the role of Huang Rong. I was impressed with her in My Sunshine, although I haven’t checked her out in the Deer and the Cauldron 2014. Never watched (or not remember) any work of Wei Qian Xiang or Zhang Rui, so I can’t form an opinion how they’d fare with the two leading characters. At a glance, face wise, Wei Qian Xiang reminds me of Hu Ge and Felix Wong, but I hope he was not chosen (if it was him indeed) merely because of resemblance. I think it will be more difficult to find a young actor to play Yang Kang, because of the complexity and multiply layers of the character. So far my favorite has been Michael Miu from the 1982 version.

    1. I totally get what you mean. Sorry didn’t reply earlier, got caught up with other stuffs and forgot. But we’ll see. I need to check Huace’s Weibo page again. It seems like they’re keeping it hush-hush on purpose OR something. The last two productions were quite high-key. I wonder why. Or maybe because they want to be more careful after some criticisms of the last two? Well, criticisms are inevitable regardless, but just feel so suspicious, lol.
