Rakcharm, yes back during the warlord period, there is such "law". It isn't a surprise. I personally prefer the Chinese film it is so much better, maybe because the purpose of the Chinese film didn't focus on the forbidden love (actually there was none in the Chinese film). It had a different message. At first I was hesitant to watch this because of the forbidden love between Aun and Gybzy. Still need to finish watching this but I think I might have to wait for the English sub. Anyways did they give proper credit that this was based on a Chinese novel? If not, I am surprise no lawsuit has been filed.
