"The recording of the Legend of the Condor Heroes is out of budget"

The first part "The Iron-Blooded Loyalists "  of  the major  83 TV-drama series " Legend of the Condor Heroes” will be released next week. Yesterday there was a presentation in the Shangri-La Hotel  in Cowloon  with the actors. All the actors attended,  it  was a very lively meeting. The cast, such as Huang Rihua, Yung Mei Ling, Miao Qiaowei, Yang Panpan, Huang Zhaoshi, Huang Yuncai, Huang Wenhui and Kuang Zuofu also watched their own performances with interest.

Wang Tianlin, de producer of the play said that the second part of the “Legend of the Condor Heroes “  has now completed about ten episodes and the further progress goes smoothly, with the exception that  the production costs exceeds the budget.  At present, the cost per episode is about 140,000 HK dollars, which is about 30% more than the original estimate. Fortunately the  TV directors  are still very much interested in the  series and are satisfied with the production.

On February 25 TVB held the premiere of "The Legend of the Condor Heroes: Iron and Blood". At the premiere, Yung Mei Ling wore a grey suit and had curly hair. It is assumed that she permed her hair during her period of injury. Therefore, it is easy to tell whether the plot was shot before and after the injury based on Yung Mei Lings hair. For example, the first encounter with Hong Qigong and the beach teasing Hong Qigong, Yung Mei Ling had straight hair and therefore this was shot before her injured; Guo Jing Yangkang duel at Longhutan, Yung Mei Ling had curly hair and therefore was shot after the injury.
