So one of my favorite writings by jin young has been the condor triology and I know it has been a famous work in asia, haven been adapted in various media forms. Although the stories are well written there are so many details I still wonder about.
My question is are there theories circulating out there about the triology? I'm not chinese so I can't really look them up but I have heard about some, for instance,
One reason of the reason xiang yang fell had to do with yelu, gou fu's husband.
Yang Xiao was taught martial arts by Cheng Ying, huang yaoshis last disciple.
Xiao long nu and yang you couldnt grow old together because Xiao long nu dies later due to her injuiries relapsing.
Gou Fu and Yang Gou are actually in love and hook up later_( this one I doubt).
I also have some of my own after reading the translations but I know the eng translations doesn't really reflect the complex meaning in chinese but please clarify for me.
Yellow dress maiden is the descendant of Guo Xiang, (&maybe he zu dao).
Adopted or intermarried into the yang_long couple.
The gentlemen and maiden sword are the gan jiang and mo ye sword?
Zhao min and Zhang Wuji, are jin young's incarnation of Lin Chao Ying and Wong Chong Yang.
Zhang San Feng had a crush on Guo Xiang.
I would just like to think about it more because I think there were some many things that hasn't been explored yet. I dearly wish jin young was still alive so maybe one day when I learn chinese I could ask him directly or read more about any of his commentaries.
