How to break through the original martial arts drama? | Online Roundtable No.27

Martial arts drama has ushered in a small climax.

I don’t know about the chivalrous detective, the heavy fire on the moon, the one-inch lovesickness in a juvenile tour, and the first night of dusk. The last time the martial arts drama was actively discussed by the audience was the remake of The Legend of the Condor Heroes in 2017. Since then, the voice of "the martial arts is dead" has been higher and higher.

After a lapse of three years, the martial arts drama not only did not die, but even broke through the curse of "only classic remakes have sound volume". Several IP adaptations and original martial arts dramas emerged in succession, which also made the frozen martial arts drama market a little more warm. The IP adaptation has the fan base of the original work. In contrast, the original martial arts drama lacks the most primitive audience accumulation. So, how difficult is the breakthrough of the original martial arts drama? How can the chivalrous spirit be accepted by the young audience now? How can the world outlook of martial arts dramas be detailed?

This week’s online round table,Yuli studioXiaoyu, the editor of TV series, Doby, who has read a lot of films, and Shunfenger, a martial arts fan, were invited. These three special "audiences" took the original martial arts drama "Dusk White Head" being broadcast as an example to explore the way out of the original martial arts drama.

Moderator: When did you pay attention to the drama "Twilight"? What was your first impression of him? From which episode did "into the pit" begin?

Small fish:After reading "Under the Golden Clothes", I paid attention to Lun Jia. After watching his drama to be broadcast, I paid attention to this "Dusk White Head". The hero and heroine are all my favorite types, and the costumes are also good. I followed it after the broadcast.

Downwind ear:I paid attention to it when it first started broadcasting, because I had a preview on Weibo before it started broadcasting. It’s really into the pit after watching the first episode, because it’s cool and not inky in rhythm. However, the editing of the previous episodes did jump a little, but the place that should be explained was fairly clear, and it was not difficult to understand because of editing problems, and the plot of the male and female protagonists was quite sweet.

Doby:I started to pay attention to the tweet "Drama Can Say", because I usually have the habit of pulling tabs. After seeing the tweet, I felt very interesting, so I went to see it. My first impression was to see the handsome Ren Guochao. About four episodes from into the pit.

Compere: What scenes and plays surprise you?

Doby:Many scenes were shot in real scenes. What impressed me was that when the hero and heroine met for the first time, Lin Jing saved the United States, a boat was surrounded by an umbrella, and between the green mountains and green waters, the picture was beautiful and novel, and the martial arts movements were real and not procrastinating; Lin Jing and Rong Jian met men in black at the inn, and when they were fighting with men in black, it was also interesting that they accidentally "dong". After Rong Chen knew Lin Jing’s identity, he was surrounded in the forest, and the scene of Lin Jing coming out of the crowd was unexpectedly moved.

In addition, there is the scene of the wedding of Lan Yue and Rong Jian. The heroine’s crying scene is very layered. Rong Jian, who has almost nothing, still has a strong look in her eyes and her emotions are expressed in place when she cries.

Small fish:The whole drama is quite real, especially some cliff scenes. It can be seen that the scenery is real, and the actors actually shoot on the spot, which is quite enjoyable to watch. Compared with the previous special effects operation, the picture presentation effect of this drama is really good.

Downwind ear:I prefer the scene of fighting in the rain. It’s really too quiet, the action is crisp and neat, and the splash that falls on the sword makes the atmosphere of fighting in the rain feel very good. The slow motion in the play can be said to be just right, and it won’t be considered endless slow motion. Moreover, in this scene, I also see that Lin Jinghe is completely different from others, and he is handsome.

Moderator: Lin Jing and Rong Jian were called "eight-speed love" from the beginning. How do you feel about this kind of emotional development mode in which the hero and heroine quickly enter love?

Downwind ear:It’s very cool, not procrastinating. Get to know each other quickly, have a good impression, and then like each other, giving people the feeling of straight-ball love. It seems that most of the love in martial arts is like this, and it is acceptable without any sudden feeling.

Doby:I feel very emotional. The first few episodes are super eye-catching. Others use the progress of 40-60 episodes to solve it here in 6-8 episodes. The rhythm is very fast and attractive, which is different from the rhythm of other domestic dramas.

Small fish:In fact, the first episode still feels that the pace is a little fast, which may be due to the editing, and the bedding is not done enough. Some plots seem unintelligible, and the sweetness is sweet, but it looks a little awkward. It is better for the later episodes to unfold slowly. Ren Jialun and Zhang Huiwen still have a good sense of CP.

Moderator: Allen plays Lin Jing and Na Lanyue with different personalities. What do you think is the difference between his performance and his previous roles?

Doby:It is the biggest difference between one person and the other.

Maybe it turns out that in the play, he only has one way of expression. When he is dull, he is very anxious and wants to confess for him. Don’t worry about it here. It’s a vigorous and icy Lan Yue when you start your career. When you are in love, it is Lin Jing who is full of love words and super sexy.

I like both roles very much. I think he can show the contrast image of the male host in different identities, and the people are full.

Small fish:The costume style is still very handsome, and the two dragons and bangs also have the style of martial arts. In the performance, one is open and the other is restrained, and the sense of contrast is not bad.

Downwind ear:This should be the most exposed role that Allen has ever played. The roles played before, such as Guangping Wang, Lu Yi, Lin Chong, are all relatively cold or decisive.

But this time, Lin Jing is very funny, informal, and sometimes even a little superficial and talkative. It is really the first time to have such a happy role, as if Guo Chao himself. It is really quite different from before, and I can’t see the shadow of my former role. In the later period, due to family changes, Nalan Yue will gradually turn from a free and easy teenager into a calm and forbearing person, which will form a huge contrast between the two personalities.

Moderator: What’s your impression of the role of Rong Jian? Compared with the heroine of the previous martial arts drama, what are the highlights and places worthy of improvement in her body?

obeyWind ear:At first, I felt that I was a lovely and kind girl who had never experienced evil in the Jianghu. It was probably set up by a silly and sweet person, but after reading it, I found that it was actually an anti-routine.

I think her difference is that she won’t be influenced by grudges. In the past, many women who watched martial arts dramas broke up with men because of hatred, but the tolerance was quite clear — — Grudges are grudges, love is love, not filial piety, and will not be influenced by the previous generation. And pure but not Bai Lianhua, have the heart of the guard at the same time, also have their own definition of good and evil, as long as the later people don’t collapse.

Small fish:Rong Jian’s character has a good personality, is not stupid, and is witty and correct. Hui Wen’s image is also quite consistent, which is very different from Lin Xi in nirvana in fire, and she performed that kind of strange energy.

Doby:Rong Chen has the softness of a classical woman and the toughness of a martial artist. Most of the martial arts women in my memory are Jin Yong’s department. They are rather timid. Rong Yan inherited the feeling that the martial arts women are very timid in character, but her body is weak and makes people want to protect.

The biggest bright spot is that she is very strong, but she just looks weak. She can stand up and argue with her father, prove Lin Jing’s innocence, and identify her sister who wants to harm her by the way. This is the attraction of the heroine. In the place of promotion, I selfishly hope that she can be more active. Falling in love here is still not active enough.

Moderator: Apart from the protagonist, which supporting role do you think is more brilliant? Why?

Small fish:Rong rewelding, the person with a big black belly has a sense of belt.

Doby:Lin Jing’s apprentice. I think his presence is the key to Lin Jing’s pursuit of capacity.

Downwind ear:The villain in the play feels a little impressed, a bit like the setting of Tian Shan Tong Mu. One second it was cute, and the next second it was Slay, which was quite emotional.

Moderator: An obvious feature of "Dusk White Head" is that every character, whether positive or negative, has his own thoughts. Some fans say that this is a "black lotus" for all employees. How do you accept such people?

Small fish:It’s very acceptable. Every character has a bright spot, and there are often reversals when watching the drama. I am glad that no character in this play is a "paper man". Even a small functional character can see his fullness.

Doby:Only when you have your own thoughts can you see something. After all, everyone has two sides. If it is absolutely black and white, the plot is very monotonous and there is nothing to see.

Downwind ear:It is acceptable and interesting. I thought this drama was just dressed in the cloak of martial arts. In fact, it was all about sweet love, but I didn’t expect it to turn out to be a werewolf. Everyone is not what it seems, but has his own other side, and feels a very different look and feel.

Moderator: What is your understanding of chivalry? Which story in "Twilight" makes you feel the "chivalrous righteousness"?

Small fish:A great man is for the country and the people. What I feel most about the chivalrous spirit is watching The Condor Heroes. Yang Guo and Guo Jing have always been chivalrous and heroic models in their hearts. At present, what makes me feel chivalrous in "Dusk White Shout" is the plot of Jingyuan saving Rongchan. "You used to have Lingxu Pavilion and Longyincheng, but now there is nothing, you can only stand up on your own!" This line also contains too much emotion.

Doby:Chivalrous spirit means that brothers should do their best when they are in trouble. I don’t feel very deep now, but when Lin Jing helped Rong Yan, besides seeing the sweet pet, I could really feel the chivalrous demeanor.

Downwind ear:Perhaps influenced by watching TV when I was a child, the understanding of chivalry spirit is "helping each other when the road is rough, being loyal, and having a clear grudge" in Jin Yong’s and Gu Long’s novels and so on.

When watching "Dusk Whitehead", I will feel chivalrous and courageous in Jianghu when I see Lin Jing being hindered and insist on finding out the cause of my father’s death. When I see Lin Jing’s single-minded feelings for Rong Jian, I will also feel the affection of children in Jianghu and what is the real "clear distinction between grievances and grievances". I think it is "chivalry" and "righteousness" to be able to distinguish right from wrong.

Compere: At present, there are very few original martial arts dramas, and it is difficult to make a circle whether it is remake or adaptation. What are the reasons for the difficulty in creating this type of martial arts drama?

Downwind ear:It is true that few people around us watch martial arts dramas now, and some people think that there is no market for martial arts dramas. Creating martial arts dramas requires beautiful martial arts movements and conveys the chivalry and morality that martial arts should have … … Nowadays, too many martial arts dramas are just dressed in the cloak of martial arts, and there is no joy and enmity in the rivers and lakes. Some seem to be just slow-motion poses, familiar Marisol routines and the like, and there is no intention to make a good martial arts drama.

The adaptation and innovation is also a very difficult problem for the martial arts drama. For example, it is not easy to innovate and adapt a story that is familiar to everyone. I think what we lack is actually a good martial arts drama. As long as there is a good original innovative freehand brushwork martial arts script, and a production team is willing to seriously shoot an orthodox martial arts drama, the audience will accept it.

Doby:For me personally, it may be because the Jin Yong series is too classic, and the classics in the 1980s and 1990s are too deep. The version in early 2000 was replayed too many times on TV, just like Princess Huanzhu, which impressed me because of too many repetitions.

Small fish:It’s hard to surpass the classics before them. After all, many martial arts works by Jin Yong and Gu Long were deeply rooted in the hearts of the people in the early years. The martial arts world and system they built were accumulated by many works. Now it is difficult to have a spark with only one or two martial arts works.
