First Friend - GuGu


There is a popular Chinese novelist by the name of Jing Yong. He is a great writer and has become an Asian equivalent to Shakepeare minus a few degrees.
Shakespeare had Romeo and Juliet, Jing Yong had the Condor Hero trilogy. An epic story with the backdrop of factual Chinese History blended with adventure, romance and suspense. This is where we get the name little dragon girl. Little dragon girl was a character that appeared during the second part of this epic trilogy. She was the heroine who helped train and rescue a little abandoned boy. She first appeared in the story as an stoic teen who was forced to somehow rescue an abandoned boy whom was chased by his enemies. Being several years his senior, she initially became his martial art master. But as both grew older, that relationship blossomed toward a Romeo and Juliet type relationship which was considered to be a taboo by the ancient chinese culture of the time.

More to come.... of my son's little dragon girl.

I saw the name "Little Dragon Girl" and the term "Gu Gu" and wondered... could that be referencing Condor Hero? It was!!

Watched that series (Mandarin Language/English Sub). The romance between Guo and LDG was just heart wrenching! The drama and multiple brushes with a near-unhappy ending had the definite feel of Asian cinema.

The actress who plays Rong Guo reminds me of someone, but I can't place her. :(

Very pretty actresses in that series. In particular, the actresses who played Fairy Witch Liu?, Little Dragon Girl, MS. Jade, and Xiang Guo(The Guo's youngest, but kind hearted daughter).

Awesome series and a must watch for anyone who is into Chinese history and enjoys a good Romance mixed with Kung Fu!

I just love this series!
Good blend of Remeo and Little Dragon Girl

I think Little Dragon Girl alone can beat up both Romeo and Juliet together. :P

She is so pretty!! Who is she?

She should play Juliet! Love the blog and the overall theme. Very easy and sipping a cup of hot gourment coffee environment while sitting around with old friends kind of feeling.

Great writting:) and keep writting. Don't stop
