Wallace Huo is handsome and Yu Zheng needs a spellchecker for Sword(s)man

“No, you absolutely cannot add an s after sword…but you can change the font.”

Maybe I do so many posts on this because it’s so easy to make fun of it. As the broadcast date of Sword(s)man, Yu Zheng’s rendition of Jin Yong’s novel Proud Smiling Wanderer, the stills released reveal the upcoming drama as increasingly game-like. After a brief stint involving make up and a mirror, Wallace Huo becomes manly again as Linghu Cong, ranging from silly to hurt to romantically good at playing a zither under extremely video game-like  lightning (here). Between this and all of the gender-bending twists that Yu Zheng has thrown in, we’re in for an amusing (though possibly painful) ride. As a refresher – Dongfang Bubai is played by the immensely feminine Joe Chen, Wallace Huo girls himself up at some point, and Chen Xiao (as Lin Pingzhi) ditches Yang Rong (as Yue Lingshan) to become a woman of some sort. The stills below are dominated by Wallace Huo, but if you’re interested in seeing more of Yuan Shanshan‘s very special Ren Yingying, look here.

“I’m sorry, Linghu Cong, she made fun of my (too bright) clothes.”
