I started (well, restarted, I didn't like it first time round) my first even Jin Yong drama yesterday, Demi-Gods..., and I'm thoroughly enjoying it. It is a little slow off the ground, but when it gets to the good bits in the middle, well, it's amazing. It's so enchanting
I plan to watch some more after I've watched this, but I didn't know there's 59. That's a lot.

I'm planning on watching Return of the Condor Heroes,
since I saw a little bit of it when they were airing it in the Philippines.
