The latest adaption of Return of the Condor Heroes / Romance of the Condor Heroes 神雕侠侣 has confirmed Tong Mengshi (Colourful Bones) as Yang Guo, new actress Mao Xiaohui as Xiaolongnü and award-winning young actress Wen Qi (Eagles and Youngster) as Guo Xiang.
Guo Jing (Wang Dong) and Huang Rong (Sui Junbo) send a young Yang Guo to the orthodox Quanzhen Sect so he can further develop his martial arts and character, though he ends up escaping to the Tomb of the Living Dead, where he becomes Xiaolongnü’s disciple.
Several years later, Yang Guo grows up and develops romantic affections for his teacher, which goes against the societal norms of the time. The pair undergo various tribulations over the sixteen+ years before they are finally able to lead a peaceful life in seclusion after saving Xiangyang from a Mongol invasion.
