I saw it a few weeks ago. The story is off course different from the novel! It's okay to watch it if you've never read the novel. I just don't understand why at least the two latest movie adaptations of the White Haired Maiden always they depict ZYH and YLC as a couple who had such a steamy hot relationship that made YLC looked like a cheap girl.
