"Swordsman" for different audiences

"Swordsman" for different audiences

7 Mar – Playing the role of Linghu Chong in the highly-criticised Yu Zheng-produced adaptation, "Swordsman", actor Wallace Huo stated that he had been expecting the disapprovals since he first decided to take on the role.

As reported on Popular Asians, the Taiwanese actor, however, clarified that "Swordsman" is meant for a different audience, stating, "I am personally against adaptations that differed from the original, but despite its changes, I was quite impressed with the script. I believe that many younger audiences are not familiar with the original, so "Swordsman" is for them."

When asked about the comments made by fans who wanted his character to choose Joe Chen's Dongfang Bubai instead of Ren Yingying, Wallace stated, "I know many fans cannot understand why he doesn't respond to Dongfang Bubai's pursuits after everything she has done for him. But the ending is set, and nothing can change it."

However, he agreed that Linghu Chong and Dongfang Bubai's relationship was a fascinating one and that the two characters cannot have a simple ending.

The popularity of the Linghu Chong and Dongfang Bubai relationship also mirrored the relationship between the former lovers, Wallace Hu and Joe Chen, who became a couple through 2004's Taiwanese drama, "100% Senorita".

Wallace explained, "We were young back then. Many things have changed in the past few years. Both of us have experienced different setbacks and different matters, so we have both changed dramatically."

When asked if Joe Chen remains to be his ideal type, he answered, "Not bad. She's good, and a pretty girl," but continued, "I like low-profile girls. I also like those who are forgiving, and someone who I can take out with and manage a house."
