Hu Ge's New LOCH Preparation and its details about possible success.
Translated by Mac
How many movies and series of the famous novel LOCH of Jin Yong have been filmed so far? I believe many people will not be able to answer when this question is asked. Nevertheless, the previous versions can’t stop those enthusiasts to film LOCH one time after another. Most astonishing thing is that someone has already bought it even before filming of the LOCH. They are Zhe Jiang TV station.
The producer of the new LOCH is the CEO Li guoli of the film company Hong Kong China Town, who has been staying in Heng Dian for a long time. As a famous director of TVBS of his time, Li guoli successfully started his career in mainland china. He took Heng Dian as his battle field and won all the ‘battles’ he had gone through so far. He filmed ‘shu jian en chou lu’, ‘chinese paladin’, ‘tian wai fei xian’, ‘shao nian yang jia jiang’ consecutively and all these series were quite popular. Heng Dian can be called as the place of blessing for Li guoli. Going through all the observation and analysis of filming series in Heng Dian, he has gained a comprehensive information and complete study of the trend of the ancient costume series market today. This is why all his series become the target that many TV stations are going after.
Though Li guoli did not declared he wants to challenge Zhang jizhong’s LOCH03 this time, according to the length of this new LOCH, it is easy to conclude that he is asking for something can be finished in one shot. He said: “I want to make this kind of swordsman series look exciting to those audiences and those love series look touching to the audience.” Li guoli had made up his mind that he would overshadow all the previous versions of LOCH to make an unprecedented version of it. In this new series, guo jing, yang kang and ou yangke are the three male leads. Among the three, guo jing is 18 years old as soon as he appears in the show. What happened to him during his childhood will be omitted in order to strengthen the modern rhythm of the series.
Only three main leads are confirmed so far: Hu ge(Guo jing), Lin yichen(Huang rong) and Huang qiusheng(Huang yaoshi). In order to act well in the series, Hu ge is carrying out project “fattening”. Lin yichen is spending her time on memorizing those lines. There are many ridiculously funny lines in the series so that Lin yichen’s Huang rong is definitely the center of attraction. Li guoli wish to make a romantic and funny show to satisfy the audiences.
The preparation of filming has already begun and it will start in July. 5 months will be dedicated to finish filming the show. 4 out of 5 months will be spent on filming in residential areas of Qing ming shang he. On the other hand, they will have to spend time on filming in estate of Gong qin wang as well. The crew will build a residential area scene in the garden of estate of Gong qing wang for filming as well.
[Note: Hu Ge's fattening up process has worked as recently fans suggested he has gone fatter in the promotional activies of Bei Ai Wo. But his face still remains skinny, yet his body is much more fitter and less boney.]
