Today’s post links to Hearts of Wulin. I take a brief look at key sources for martial action stories. If you’ve never heard of Jin Yong, Gu Long or Liang Yusheng but you like wuxia movies and stories, odds are pretty good you’ve seen an adaptation of one of their novels. In particular I love the long form TV dramas. These series have their roots in this earlier lit from the 1950s, 60s, and 70s, but have also seen a rise in adaptations of contemporary novels and stories.
In the post I provide some suggested series as well as places you can track down these shows. If you’ve watched any and have particular favorites, please post in the comments.
