C-netizens Criticize the Casting of Zhuang Da Fei as Huang Rong in the Upcoming Tsui Hark Movie Adaptation of Legend of the Condor Heroes

by AcklinEHuey


I’ve been through Louis Cha wuxia novel casting brouhahas before and when I was younger it did annoy me more that actors/actresses were cast that just looked/vibed nothing like the famous characters, the biggest complaint remains Michelle Chen as Xiaolongnu in the 2014 version of Return of the Condor Heroes. There have been new LoCH, RoCH, Dragon Sword, and Demi-Gods and Semi-Devils in the last decade but this upcoming new movie version of Legend of the Condor Heroes directed by Tsui Hark has gotten the C-netizens back to naysayer form. Female lead Zhuang Da Fei is getting complaints for being nothing like LoCH spritely female character Huang Rong. One netizens says “Zhuang Da Fei’s similarity to Huang Rong is………probably the same gender.” I don’t disagree that she doesn’t immediately make one think Huang Rong, I can see her playing Zhao Min actually, but I’ve been around the block enough to just go “eh” and a shrug and will wait to see the end product.
