A flashback series of photos of Chinese Paladin 仙剑奇侠传 featuring Hu Ge, Liu Yifei, Ady An, Esther Liu, Bryan Wong, Eddie Peng and Tse Kwanho among others. Unlike many of the recent xianxia / 仙侠 dramas that focus solely on the romance or fantasy aspect and forgo the equally important code of chilvalry (侠), this one had equal parts romance, adventure and friendship.
All the supporting characters’ story arcs made a lasting impression on me, whether it was the butterfly fairy’s love for Liu Jinyuan, Jiang Ming and the fox demon’s ill-fated love story or the Drunken Sword Immortal and Ah-nu’s bittersweet father-daughter relationship.
Most of the instrumentals Mai Zhenhong composed for Tangren’s early dramas are classics, and in my opinion, Peach Blossom Island and Everlasting Memory are the clear standouts from Chinese Paladin‘s soundtrack.

This was the only Chinese Paladin series I watched lol.
It’s so nice to see posts mentioning old dramas like these! I’d definitely say that this older drama is much better than most of the current xianxia dramas. I wasn’t that much of a fan of chinese paladin 5 sadly and thought 3 was okay and was more interested in liu shi shis role in that one.
