These are all articles(translated and not) that related to the serial Xiao Ao Jiang Hu - CCTV 2001. The one on top is written in the most recent date.

Jin Yong later mentioned that the media have blown the issue out of proportion, in terms of him not liking the CCTV production, and that in retrospect he might have reserved or rephrased some of the comments he made. He said CCTV had agreed not to make any changes as part of the conditions for the copyright, cos JY apparently REALLY wanted to have a truly faithful SOD made. But in the end the changes were made and he was displeased that CCTV did not keep to their word. But he did say that he has let the issue go after becoming friends with the CCTV crews, and is actually a little sorry that because of his comments and the media, the entire show was criticised more harshly that it deserves to be.

In that opportunity, the TV station crews invited two Pinlang Xishi(s). Li Yapeng admit that his impression on Pinlang Xishi is way different from what he has imagined. "They are similar with those hot girls in the disco pub back in Mainland," the Linghu Chong portrayer explained.

Li Yapeng who succeed in playing the role as Linghu Chong was confirmed to have another contract soon with CCTV to make another Jin Yong adaptation serial, Legend of The Condor Heroes. Li Yapeng will portray Guo Jing character. The production crews of LOCH will be the same crews who have produced Xiao Ao Jiang Hu with the same producer also, Zhang Jizhong. Hopefully, LOCH crews will start shooting in Mongolia on August 5th, 2001.

On his last visit in Taiwan, May 2001 ago, Li Yapeng didn't have the chance to see Pinlang Xishi that have made him curious, that's why TVBS now managed them to meet him so Li Yapeng's knowledge gets wider ^_~

"I am Ling Hu Chong, Ling Hu Chong is me". That's what Li Yapeng have said to himself for the past 6 months during the shooting of Jin Yong series, Xiao Ao Jiang Hu. But, after the shooting ends, this Mainland star sometimes forgotten that he's not the unbeatable Ling Hu Chong, as he's actually Li Yapeng that doesn't know any kungfu.
Recently, the journalist who met Li Yapeng coincidentally when he was attending a TV station show, "Pin Tou Lun Zhu", feels Li Yapeng is still acting like Ling Hu Chong.
"Picture this, for 168 days I have to portray this character, everyday I look on the mirror, I see only Ling Hu Chong. If Ling Hu Chong is me, than who am I?" he asked. For 6 months, Li Yapeng only sleep for 3 hours a day.
"Frankly, Ling Hu Chong has effect me very much," Yapeng said. "Actually, I'm a serious guy. But I have to play a mischevious and ridiculous character which the total opposite of me."
Li Yapeng remember how Jin Yong gave him some advice. When he arrived on the shooting location, he didn't really pay attention to details. That's why, when Jin Yong visited the location, he gave Yapeng advice on how to understand the character.
"Jin Yong said, to be not too serious, I have to make up three jokes everyday before start shooting, how can I ever do that?" Yapeng said. But the hard effort Li Yapeng had done, pays off, as he did portray the role well. His closest friend is even pretty confused with Li Yapeng talking style after he portrayed Ling Hu Chong. "My friend said, 'when did he ever start talking like this?'"

In National Palace Museum, Li Yapeng who came with another Xiao Ao Jiang Hu's star, Wei Zi(Yue Buqun), buy up lots of souvenirs, including Emperor Tang Tai Zong's painting.

Most of the collections that being kept in Taipei National Palace Museum are formerly the Forbidden City National Palace Museum's collections. Those collections are being moved to Taipei by Chiang Kai Shek followed by Nationalist government's overshadowed by the Comunist government with Mao Zidong as the leader.
