About “The Legendary Swordsman”
The story has been adapted from “The Smiling, Proud Wanderer” by legendary novelist Louis Cha and was first serialised by Ming Pao newspaper from 1967 to 1969. The story was well received by readers with its clever political satire. The themes of the story focus on good versus bad, hypocrisy and the difference between social classes.
In a world where people are fighting for power, where good tries to overcome evil, everyone is in search of the Mallow Journal, a mysterious manuscript that will render its owner invincible. Chaos arises when the manuscript reaches the hands of Invincible Orient, the leader of the Evil Party. Invincible Orient embarks on a journey to conquer the world.
Linghu Chong, a young free-spirited apprentice of the Mount Hua Sword School, receives an order from his master Yue Buqun, to retrieve the Mallow Journal. During his mission, he encounters members of the Evil Party as well as Ren Yingying, the only daughter of the former Evil Party leader Ren Woxing. Ren Yingying is on a mission to find her father who has been betrayed and detained by the Invincible Orient. The encounter triggers feelings between Linghu Chong and Ren Yingying.
The good guys turn bad and the bad guys become honourable, but they all end up fighting in their quest to rule the world.
The novel has been immensely popular for decades. It has been adapted into movies and TV series and this year a new TV version will be released.
