Ni Shui Han is one of the top martial arts drama series adapted from wuxia novel writer Wen Rui An. It is one of the stories related to the famous novel series, ‘Si Da Ming Bu’ (The Four), featuring The Four Famous Constables. In this drama the four famous constables helps the protagonist Qi Shao Shang (Julian Cheung) finds justice.
Ni Shui Han is a wuxia drama that combines the delicacy of the characters’ internal struggles with martial arts. Based on Wen Rui An’s original novel, Ni Shui Han follows the journey of Qi Shao Shang in his quest to find the truth behind his sword, Ni Shui Han. Gu Xi Zhao is the antagonist in this story. He pursues Qi Shao Shang in hopes of stopping him before he finds the truth of the sword. The characters, in their clashes and struggles, weigh the importance of loyalty and justice and the meaning of love and life. Ni Shui Han examines several layers of human feelings and the meaning of life for the characters. It is much more than just a martial arts drama; it is a touching story about truth and life. — NovaMania
I own this drama series on DVD and this would be one of the top martial arts television series out there. It has a strong plot with many profound characters with skilled martial arts. The love relationship of Julian Cheung with his love & Wallace Chung and his love is a must see. I like that the story is related to the four famous guards ‘Si Da Ming Bu’. The DVD is rare to find because it is out of print. You can find the English subtitles to Ni Shui Han at this website. https://jianghufs.wordpress.com/current/.
