Bi Xue Jian (Sword Stained with the Royal Blood) is a relatively new release by Zhang JiZhong (made in 2005-6, released in 2006-7). One of the best thing that ZJZ as a director who transfers Jin Yong's story to film media is that he emphasizes well on cinematography. He stays relatively close to the novel. He picks pretty actresses. And the camera tricks are all well executed.

The novel is itself is a relatively straightforward wuxia story, so some people rank it on a lower level, less than the condor trilogy, Smiling Proud Wanderer, or Tian Long Ba Bu (see how mixed up these titles can be? One is a nickname, one is an English title, and one is the original pinyin title).

Anyway, here are the list of the characters:

Vincent Jiao - Jin She Lang Jun
He Qing - Wan Yee
Tiêu Thục Thận - He Tieshou
Guo Kim - He Hong Yao
Ma Su - An Tiểu Tuệ
Vương Lộ Dao - An Đại Nương

People interested in watching the series with English subtitles, look for hard-subbed series by Jiang Hu fan translations. Veoh and other websites might have them.
