Now that I’ve finished all 50 episodes and am at a lack things to do, I’ve decided to write down some of my reflections on the 2008 version of LOCH. Let me know if you agree or disagree!

The Plot & the 2008 Version

The original plot of the book is worshiped by generations of readers of Wu Xia novels. The new version has a couple of twists to keep everyone interested. Also, the 2008 production has a cast targeting a younger audience (i.e. Hu Ge and Ariel Lin). The long history of the dynasties and fueds, that cover a good deal of Jin Yong’s novel, are quickly covered in the first couple of episodes. A big ‘Thank You!’ to the director and screenwriter. Huge changes were also made for the character Yang Kang but you’ll have to scroll down to the spoilers section to read about the specifics.

As for casting for the four lead character, I have some accolades and some grievances. I really appreciate that the 2008 version has the hottest Guo Jing to date. His first appearances, mostly his hair, has the viewers (including myself) questioning the costume director. Please get that dreadful curtain of frizzed bangs away from Hu Ge’s gorgeous face! However, his lookdoes improve significantly in a couple episodes of part 2 of LOCH. He even picks up a cute unshaven look near the end.

Part 2 (Also see Part 1)

Part 1 of the LOCH left us at a somewhat comedic cliffhanger – watch the end 26 episode and you’ll see.

Is Guo Jing going to win the hand in marriage of his beloved? After days of waiting and googling, I’ve found that part 2 has finally started airing and therefore can be found online. (Look below for a list of links.) I’m expecting a lot more action and waiting for Guo Jing to comb his hair. From the screencaps below, you can tell that his hair is going to get better. He’s also loosing that innocent/mentally retarded look. Hopefully, Guo Jing keeps his dumb luck since stronger enemies are showing their faces in part 2.
