Legend of the Ancient Sword 2: Press Con

The production team just held a press con recently so I got excited.

They managed to get the cast to interact and talk a bit more about their roles.

I guess the focus was on these four since Ken had to post his own set of photos, lol. (And no Dylan.)

So, how was it? After watching just two episodes, I will say that it has potential. At first, I was nitpicking and was wondering why they were fighting soooo slow during the snow scene at the beginning. It was like in slow motion instead of real time. Yet when it moved on to the later parts, they were fighting in real time so I was reassured. Why am I picking on the fighting? Seriously, this is wuxia after all, so I think it’s justified to be worried. And indeed, some of the fighting scenes were quite exaggerated, but I think it made me believe some characters were actually worth their title or reputation within the jianghu realm, instead of some short fighting scenes and some lame compliments to convince that they were actually good in their martial arts techniques or whatever.

Anyway, I will say I like it so far. The pace is just right. However, I know that the drag usually happens with later episodes, considering how they just managed to work out the story of the older generation.

What else? Oh yeah, they used the music of TVB’s ’80s version. Usually, I will say it’s a bad idea (because I did laugh at some people for using music from old adaptations by replacing new singers to sing, etc). But in this case, I felt it was nicely used. They, of course, changed the mix and it has become like a softer version.

Legend of the Ancient Sword 2: Main Cast

So I was waiting for this or more news of this. I meant I knew it was happening and saw the initial posters when they started to work on the project. But now that they released more stills, I decided to post.

And of course I don’t know anything about the game so I’m just sticking around for Ken Chang. But I will update on others, considering how I don’t have problems with the cast and all.

Supposedly, Ken’s playing a totally different role in here versus how some thought he would return as the white-haired god-like being in the previous part. However, it doesn’t matter. I’m looking forward to see him take on this new challenge.

Aside from Ken, my other most anticipated performance would be from Dylan. This was actually the reason he was stressing over with one of his New Year posts. Possibly a totally different role for him versus past shining or dashing roles.

I’ve always been impressed with his past improvements so I’m confident Dylan will do well.

Other main cast involved Ying Er, Shao Bing, Coco Jiang Wen, Fu Xin Bo, Aarif Rahman, etc.

After months of waiting and pondering, Huace finally released some stills for the rest of us to see. They posted up pictures of the older generation first, which made sense.

Shao Bing will portray Guo Xiao Tian, Guo Jing’s father.

Zeng Li is Li Ping, Guo Jing’s mother.

Li Zong Han will be Yang Tie Xin, Yang Kang’s father. It’s such a pity though since I actually like Li Zong Han and definitely do not like Yang Tie Xin. But I guess we’ll see how he would portray this role.

Crystal Liu Qian Han is Bao Xi Ruo, Yang Kang’s mother.

So far, the costumes aren’t too bad. Just excited to see more from the others.
