When I was young I had a chance to read Chinese Wuxia (Martial Heros) Novel “The Heaven Sword and Dragon Saber” that contains in total of 16 books. It was a gift from my Grandpa. When I finished my homework, I slept in the hammock and read them every day until I finished it.
I am not sure how many days but the story was very inspired and well translated into Khmer.
I heard there are many Chinese TV Series based on this novel But I never got a chance to watch them. Until recently I wanted to get some inspiration for my upcoming novel, I searched on YouTube and I found this playlist.
It’s a new adaptation in 2019 with English Subtitle and it is really good Tv series: well performance, good cast, and best director. I enjoyed watching it and it brought me a lot of ideas for my novel.
The Heaven Sword and Dragon Saber were written by Louis Cha, under the pen name Jin Yong since 1961 but it is still a very good story to read and watch. It’s, in fact, a third book in the Condor Trilogy.
There are 2 English adaptations from the Condor Trilogy that are already published on Amazon:
I also enjoy watching The Legend of the Condor Heroes which is the first installement of the trilogy.
If you are new to the Chinese Martial Art Tv Series, I definitively recommend these 2 series. I look forward to the second installment The Return of the Condor Heroes (2019) which is not yet released.
I will keep updating this best Chinese Wuxia Drama (TV Series) as soon as I finish watching them:
What are your favorite Chinese Wuxia Tv Series? Hope you can share with us.
