Wallace Huo’s (霍建华) highly anticipated drama, Swordman <笑傲江湖>, will be airing on Hunan TV on February 5, 2013.
Swordman is Yu Zheng’s (于正) first foray into the wuxia genre, a departure from his trademark “scheming palace ladies” genre. Yu Zheng maintains that Swordman is the most loyal adaptation of Jing Yong’s wuxia novel to-date, while delving into the romantic details more deeply.
Linghu Chong (Wallace Huo) will be engaged in amorous relationships with Yue Lingshan (Yang Rong 杨蓉), Ren Yingying (Yuan Shanshan 袁姗姗) and even Dongfang Bubai (Joe Chen 陈乔恩). Expelled from the Mount Ha Sect, Linghu Chong is soon caught in the power struggles between the different sects of wulin. In his journeys, Linghu Chong learns to mend his broken heart and find love once again.
Swordman boasts a mystical setting and special effects galore to create a fantastical wuxia world. Released footage revealed luscious landscapes where the Mount Ha Sect resided, battles in bamboo forests, and digitally enhanced martial arts sequences.
With the broadcast date only one month away, Wallace Huo’s opening theme song for Swordman, “Free and Unfettered” <逍遥> was released online today. Demonstrating his earlier singing background, Wallace’s voice is crisp in delivering the lyrics that were penned by Yu Zheng.
