Hello AncientChinese.net.

I've been a fan of Shaw Brothers wuxia films, and now I'm half-way thru Romance of Red Dust. Think I'm getting the bug!

Very excited to find out more about these serials.

Thanks for providing such a great resource to newbie enthusiasts like me.

on: August 27, 2012, 09:31:44 PM 4 The Legend of Qin / The Legend of Qin Fanworks / my Qin's moon AMV



hello ancient Chinese series,I am kinda new to ancient Chinese series i have watched a bit so far and loved them :D

Anyway I just started working on a video editor called Sony Vegas and decided to do a Qin's moon music video(its also my first music video I have done...ever) because I find it an Awesome anime. I am really surprised to see China has a cool 3D animation o.o but seriously since I'm new to editing don't expect any cool flashy effects  :afro:
haha but anyway do check it out if you like,please do share your opinions and if you have any tips don't hesitate to give it to me.

Thank you.

Sadly with the way things are in China, much of it's classical religions and thought processes have been forgotten. I am hoping to make a thread here where I can post my thoughts and insight on each of the beliefs I have studied. Be mindful though, if I discuss a belief it doesn't entirely mean I am subscribing to that belief. My own course of beliefs is almost like a fusion of different thoughts, so it's perplexing to discuss. Regardless I hope to share various documents, and things I came across to help those who are perhaps not aware of the ancient religions of China. The one I am going to showcase right now is the fifteen buddha rules. These rules were place down for all of those who were wishing to become a monk. Those who wanted to learn the ways of the shaolin had to internalize these beliefs and reciet them as a form of initiation. I shall share with you them now:

Buddhist Ethics:

 1. To undertake the training to avoid taking the life of beings. This precept applies to all living beings not just humans. All beings have a right to their lives and that right should be respected.

2. To undertake the training to avoid taking things not given. This precept goes further than mere stealing. One should avoid taking anything unless one can be sure that is intended that it is for you.

3. To undertake the training to avoid sensual misconduct. This precept is often mistranslated or misinterpreted as relating only to sexual misconduct but it covers any overindulgence in any sensual pleasure such as gluttony as well as misconduct of a sexual nature.

4. To undertake the training to refrain from false speech. As well as avoiding lying and deceiving, this precept covers slander as well as speech which is not beneficial to the welfare of others.

5. To undertake the training to abstain from substances which cause intoxication and heedlessness. This precept is in a special category as it does not infer any intrinsic evil in, say, alcohol itself but indulgence in such a substance could be the cause of breaking the other four precepts.

These are the basic precepts expected as a day to day training of any lay Buddhist. On special holy days, many Buddhists, especially those following the Theravada tradition, would observe three additional precepts with a strengthening of the third precept to be observing strict celibacy. The additional precepts are:

6. To abstain from taking food at inappropriate times. This would mean following the tradition of Theravadin monks and not eating from noon one day until sunrise the next.

7. To abstain from dancing, singing, music and entertainments as well as refraining from the use of perfumes, ornaments and other items used to adorn or beautify the person. Again, this and the next rule.

8. To undertake the training to abstain from using high or luxurious beds are rules regularly adopted by members of the Sangha and are followed by the layperson on special occasions.

This is why many people who believe in Buddhism seek out a path of vegetarianism. It was very important for the monks to follow these ethics or risk being removed or worse. In ancient times it was said that they had to recite these often and also have further rules during holy days and festivals as I listed above. It seems like it would be tough to be a monk in this age. I guess that is why when I study now many of my teachers tell me to go out into the world so I could fully understand~

A few thoughts on finding this site

I am brand new at this site.  I feel like I just won the Lottery LOL.  What a Historical series Addicts dream site LOL.  I've been in love with History since I was a little kid, and have probably watched most of the historical/period films made by American film makers.  About 2 years ago I discovered Asian Online English Subbed TV series and Movies.  I admit to being "quickly hooked".  Although I have been a formal student of World History at the University level,  I have come to see how limited my knowledge of Asian History is.  Many times I find my interest is "wheted" by the Asian  film I'm watching and then go on to "dive into the subject", and often discover a whole new fascinating aspect of history and culture.  This just "adds fuel to the fire" for my Asian series addiction LOL.

As I watch the LOCH 2008,I find it interesting compare to the 2003 version...first Hu Ge  starred in this series and almost perfectly act as Guo Jing the naive,dumb,romantic,lucky and skillfull hero...compare to the 2003 hero,Hu Ge captivated me the best!!

2) 2003 n 2008 heroin Huang Rong both equal and bring harmony and laughter and hero best side kick..I salute them both..but the 2008 heroin is more cute    ....2003 heroin is more cheeky 

3) the 2008 character of Yang Kang is more enjoyable than the 2003 version...the 2009 Y.K feels more human in the way of the storyline goes...but as I remember aren't Yang Kang supposed to be dead due to poison,he get poisoned when trying to attack Huang Rong in Steel Spear Temple..Huang Rong vest had a poison in it...this unexpected storyline get me a little confused..huhu...  ???

4)but the 2008 version had a lot of human realism touch in it....I'll prefer it more...

How do you all think???

Edit: Here's the official released version of the fight clip:


Just saw the new special released, there is lots of noises but the scene is perfect! Those robbers are actually Long Ju's guys, first Shilan fought a huge man. Because she's not good at dealing with big guys, she was in grave danger when Shaoyu saved her! And Shaoyu gave her his hand and she took it! OMG! Shaoyu looks so manly now~ Then Shaoyu put that huge guy down with just one blow.

Then Long Ju comes out on horse, but Shaoyu manages to dodge and even counterattack with only that huge guy's axe. Long Ju gets interested and gives Shaoyu a horse and a spear. Then they fight again, Shilan was watching all the time worrying for Shaoyu. Then Shaoyu and Long Ju's exciting fight. The most interesting part is when Shaoyu's spear is broken and kicks Long Ju off his horse, Long Ju actually grabs Shaoyu on his ankle and pulls him down to the ground, like two kids fighting. Anyway, I can't imagine what S4 will be like if it's actually filled with such fightings, it's crazy!

Just found a little bit better one, at least without that stupid music. And this episode is called Dragon in the Field, I remember it's one of the signs from I Ching, here it means Meeting Long Ju in the field ^ ^


Since the one above has an incomplete ending, here is another record of Shaoyu vs Long Ju part, because its sound was recorded separately, you can hear everything clearly. And notice when Shaoyu picks his weapon, there is another version of the theme song Moonlight! I can't believe they can actually make Moonlight into action music!


And the new OP, to be honest, I don't like it, at least not as much as I like the one of S3.
I have Seven Swordsmen 2006 TV series. Include with english sub. I don't know if you really interested I will help you if you like.

"The Warring State" is set during China's Warring States Period (475 BC -- 221 BC) and will center on a rivalry between military strategists Sun Bin (Sun Honglei) and Pang Juan (Francis Ng). Both men studied military strategy together before Pang became a top military general for the Wei state. Despite his success, Pang became jealous of Sun's closer relationship to their hermit mentor and had him framed for treason against the state. Sun's life was spared by Pang's intervention but he was branded a criminal and had his kneecaps removed.
Pang feigned pity to trick Sun into compiling his strategic knowledge into a book with the intention to kill him afterwards. Sun became aware of the plot and pretended to go mad long enough to escape to the Qi state where he became a top strategist and statesman. Both men later led armies against one another on the battlefield
