The Bride with White Hair (1993) Script

In the shun chi's reign of ching, emp.

Shin tsu was critically ill.

A fabulous flower blossoming once in 2 decades in a snow peak reportedly could rejuvenate and bring a dying man back to life.

The court decided to send an envoy to pluck it there...

Mount "shin fung"

I, chief yeh li nieh tang of ching, have come specially to visit you mr Cho of wu tang

His majesty is now indisposed they say your flower can bring a dying man back to life

what time is it now?

Still 4 hours before the blossom I mean the year?

It's now exactly 10 years since the foundation of ching

Ten years

you may leave!

Sir, only if your flower can revive his majesty, the court will reward you handsomely

this flower is not for you Cho yi-hang, hear what our general said?

Who ranks higher than his majesty?

A woman, in my eyes

I waited for her for a decade

I wonder if she knew

My master was the chief of the 8 clans in chung yuan, and priest tzu Yang of wu tang he often told me about the underworld love-hate relationship in his words, all the clans are bad except the 8 big clans yi-hang, remember there's always controversy between good and evil yes, master I answered him the same always have you mastered moon-breaking sword I taught you?

Yes, completely


Concentrate by combining heart and sword into one draw!

The sword protects the body from being soiled by petals

Heart-piercing stab!

Master, I've already come up to such a level can I have a few days' rest now?

Learning is unlimited continue if you wish to become the future chief of the swordplay world

in fact, I've never cherished such an ambition but, occasionally... I resort to chivalrous acts!

I should've let you be captured by those rascals to save you, I don't now even know where I am oh, no, master will reprimand me for sure I've been afraid of 2 things since childhood thunderbolt and...

Hsiao Yang, time for you to repay a favor now

I'm leaving. Take care!


Master, help, master...

Sister, brother, help!

Uncle pai yun, help!


Help! I don't want to die! Help...

Master, help me... master, help me...

Can't believe miracle do exist in this world!

I did really want to thank her

look into her face

But what a pity I was really tired

When I knew him, he was only an ordinary officer unexpectedly, he later became gen wu San-kuei who changed the history of chung yuan

This time you're lucky next time I'm not sure if you'd be as lucky

I'm sober while the others are all drunk. Come on!

Come again if you've the nerve!

I enjoy company with him because I can do anything prohibited by master come on!


fear not accusations from a thousand fingers if you're innocent

a life under others' influence means no life it's as good as dead!

Have you grasped what I said?

Never knew a furious man could be so kind-hearted sometimes I doubt if he was nice to me only because I'm an orphan!

Cho yi-hang you stole a sheep from farmer ho Tor-niu's home 1/17 do you pled guilty or not?

He stole my sheep and gave me a swollen face. Look I meant to save if from getting butchered master told us to be chivalrous and they wouldn't even let go a small sheep do you plead guilty to hurting Tor-niu?

He called me beast and creep.

I should've fed him with dog shit

what's so funny?

Chief, as a disciple of wu tang and an heir to chief, what Cho yi-hang did is a disgrace to the clan and wu tang's reputation in fact, uncle pai yun is not bad, but he's overambitious he wants to have his daughter succeed as the chief against tradition so I'm his eyesore calligraphy like swordplay calls for stamina he's my brother lu hsing-Cheng for any clans stamina comes from the brush and strength practice energy with spirit move the brush with energy move the brush with energy waist more erect than brush raise wrist arm like a dragon arm like a dragon sister is late sorry, dad!

Sit down now!

Practice calligraphy now Cho yi-hang, copy 500 times to atone for your mistake I already knew it

Never be perverted by poverty it means sticking to principles under She's my sister ho lu-hua whatever adverse circumstances didn't you notice she often smiled at me?

Don't adulterate when you're rich and powerful - and she passed food for me to eat to cheer me it means however rich you're, you must restrain yourself yield not to prowess it means no submission to powerful influence understand?

Cho yi-hang, don't abandon yourself only because the chief spoils you look at them, writing without eating you eating buns here?

Follow your sister: Still as a virgin, crafty as rabbit you're carefree and an idle eater I know sister is clever the brothers are all at puberty

you, an elder brother, are naughty yourself you frolicked while learning. Do you admit guilty?

And in feb you came personally down to kill kaifeng constable fang tien-Cheng do you plead guilty or not?


Uncle pai yun, I stabbed him once only why call it "kill"?

What manner is that?

Right what's the penalty for a wu tang disciple?

Isn't it against propriety?

You admit everything then?

I admitted I killed a lackey, but...

With the proof here, don't argue any more I have nothing to say now but that lousy mandarin's folks do!

Uncle ladies & gentlemen, don't misunderstand swordsman Cho my son was to blame and he deserved it yes! Yes! Luckily swordsman Cho helped me otherwise, that bastard would've raped me he even tried to kill my daughter!

Thank you swordsman Cho for your help. Thanks...

Get up...

Silence in the palace thank you...

Pai yun, what wrong did my pupil do to have troubled the presence of you 8 elders?

In the name of the chief's adopted pupil Cho ran roughshod and bullied other clans' pupils with proof and the witnesses here, he can't deny it

Yi-hang, what have you to say?

Chief, they're the descendants of the 6 big clans if I alone could beat them all 6, it means wu tang's more powerful in martial arts on this score I admit!

Shut up!

Brother has hit the nail on the head!


Ma yu of kung tung, did Cho injure you?

No, over-exercise brought me this and you, liu Cheng of tien chuang?

How did you get your wound?

I injured myself while playing!

How do you explain your wounds?

I dropped into the well getting water out of it!

I was pursued by a tiger!

I was only joking get down! All stuff and nonsense!


I wounded him because he wouldn't pay at wan chun brothel you you hogged others' farmland in conspiracy with bureaucracy, didn't you?

And you you bullied a scholar with your martial arts...

Cho yi-hang!


You came down without the master's permission now face the Buddha and repent without drinking for 3 days yes

Aren't you tired of this?

Always putting on airs!

You see me whenever you think of me, right?

Hungry? Let me get you something to eat thank you

so you don't mind even such coarse food as buns!

They're nice! Eat!


Cho, we didn't mean to testify against you this morning priest pai yun forced us to!


Would you bear us grudge?

No, I forgot everything already!

Thank you...

Next time remember to pay at the brothel!


Cho, try red kaoliang of shansi good cut it out!

Can't you see he's carrying sister's 2 big buns?

Don't you know this is the palace of wu tang?

Wine and meat, you may ruin me! Get out!

Get out quick!

What about me?

You, too!

I'll go back to retire. You stay to sleep with brother

what are you doing?

This Jade heirloom came from my dad keep it and promise not to break it


What are you doing?

I need it help me to hold on first


Right, it's now time for us to serve our country kill rascals and remove evils! Kill!



Stealing military supplies is a serious crime.

Dying of struggle is better than starving to death come here. There's something to eat don't fight! Everybody has a share!

Who are you?

Why are you following me?

Miss, you bring us closer yourself

Right! It's better to keep a distance between us whoever sees me shall be blinded!

Do I have to perish having seen your whole body?

Miss, control your temper!

"Come back to palace at once"

Oh! I forgot to tell you I'm Cho yi-hang

Chief of the cult, killing ensures peace

Today our chief bodyguard sent an army to wipe out many lackeys

we want to let them know that our tribesmen are not ants... Under their soles the chief bodyguard frightens demons through blood practice

Those old people of chung yuan's 8 clans are too old even to hold a sword all they know is to pay lip service only

They pay lip service to bewitch the masses they not only plan to unite chung yuan but to dig out our ancestors' graves

What a nuisance

only if...

We wipe out those old leaders, the 8 clans of chung yuan will be dissolved

wipe out the beasts! Increase my longevity

Why is it so icy the whole night?

We've been hiding 20 years waiting for this day!

Now is the time to return a favor kill them for me!

Your heart's beating hard!

Let me feel it have you finished ordering?

What's so funny?

Buddy, you look so pitiable!

Having hardened her wings, you've no right to touch them!

True love is mutual I'll wait for you!

Right, compulsory love has no happiness right, compulsory love has no happiness

Priest tzu Yang, the cult is getting more powerful in manchuria it may menace the safety of the people of ming as the chief of 8 clans, you should contribute some effort!

Chi wu-shuang appears again the underworld is again rife with witchcraft we must wipe out the cult before it comes to power they're not so easy to wipe out!

I hear they're quite powerful in martial arts chief, we shouldn't have let that traitor go that year no point mentioning the past!

We must decide immediately which clan will lead the expedition what's your opinion?

As the chief of 8 clans, wu tang should too!

Right right you are hsin Cheng why, master?

Where's yi-hang?

Where have you been?

Master is meeting with the 7 clans on how to cope with the cult halt! What about the Jade I gave you?

Why ask me about it now?

Where's the Jade?

Why did you give it to someone else?

I feel he needs it more than I do I'll kill him. So you don't need him brother, master wants you

Sorry, chief, I'm late!

Yi-hang, the 8 clans have decided to send troops to suppress the cult and you'll be in command chief, this is a herculean task I'm afraid I'm not equal to it

wu tang is full of personalities why have you only him in mind, chief?

Have you got a better choice?

I venture to suggest my daughter lu-hua as the best choice right sister is brilliant and a fast swordswoman none's better suited than her as the commander oh, no, it's against the rule do you agree?


What's your opinion?

Chief, how can a female undertake such a heavy assignment?

Yi-hang a military order is as rigid as a mountain and you can't go against rules you command the 8 clans' pupils with lu-hua as your side set out by night your order is understood

Yi-hang, I've covered you up in the presence of the 8 clans why go against me?

Master, master!


I spent years' efforts teaching you kung fu, hoping you may succeed me as the chief of the 8 clans after my death I know that as the chief to lead the masses I must do many things against my will right!

So a kind heart is a defect

kind heart?

Listen if some day chi wu-shuang wants to suppress wu tang can you ask her to spare us?

And if some day we unite chung yuan and must kill all hans, can you use your heart to move them?

This is the so-called underworld rule so you have no choice

yes, I do

I may quit the underworld

Quit the underworld?

Easily said than done listen, what else can you do besides kung fu?

Returning home to till the land?

The chief him self has promised to relinquish his post to you

all the 8 clans have been eyeing this post.

You take no interest, but I do child, take a longer sight if you really become the chief.

We can join forces quite possibly we may even change ming's territory

General, we've again caught some foreign spies chop!

Yes! Chop!

We're innocent...

Uncle kuei, why did you...

Given present circumstances, killing 100 wrongly is better than letting one go the cult tries to cover the eyes and ears of the world and the manchus are getting increasingly rampant our duty as military men is to protect the territory and kill them all

Yi-hang, remember, heroes make the times!

Why is brother still not here?

Let's not wait for yi-hang anymore better plan how to deploy to copy with the cult but chi wu-shung's advanced in martial arts and we're in the dark about the cult's surroundings such a move is too dangerous let kung tung clan back out if it prefers I don't think our 7-clan coalition can't cope with wu-shuang and the wolf girl?

And we have wu tang's 72 cyclical swords and hua shan clan's...

7 fatal arrays shut up, I know and o-Mei chan's dragon-tiger conquering skills and kun lun's fantastic king Kong swordplay if we stab her unawares let alone a wolf girl, even a dragon girl may be chopped by us... into minces


let me ask you a question

foreign tribes bear us no grudge why kill them?


you want to kill?

Let me ask you

have you heard of the sounds of a sword chopped on human body or bones?

Cho yi-hang, as the commander of the 8 clans you speak badly to disrupt the army morale

You were ambitious to spread your name so you're most suited for the commander post

Patrolling at this late hour? It's freezing!

Something a front must be wrong nobody! Are you drunk?


Wake up, brother sister, isn't it against the rule?

He's against the rule he got drunk in defiance of discipline and even forsook his emblem how is he to answer to master on return to wu tang?

Men of the cult are here!

Where are they?

Here be alert!

Form an array

Bleeding, I'll die for sure only a bruise!


Are you crazy? I'm not an enemy

Miss know me?

In the ancient city.

I must kill you, a chung yuan native

Come on

Cho yi-hang

Don't move

don't blame me it would be too late if I didn't help you now

In my view he may have been bewitched by that witch I don't think it's as simple as that that witch even spared his life and followed him they exchanged glances and might have been intimate shut up!

How can one bewitched by a wolf girl command chung yuan to fight foreigners?

Brother, you'd better reconsider a more suitable candidate shut up! Bring him back quickly and let him explain to me personally

Brother, don't! Retire now!


I can give you 100 much better than she?

No, I want her!

Are you out of your mind?

That bitch helped us kill so many chung yuan men can she get away?

I must let her know she brought me the agony any annoy can't compare to our expulsion by that old tzu Yang traitor 20 years ago

Chi wu-shuang you two got twisted by the cult and brought mess to the chung yuan swordplay world expelling your family without kill you-you're lucky kill them...

Quiet, chiefs!

These 2 rats are much condemned for their crime but as an orthodox clan, we mustn't go too far chi wu-shung, we'll give you a chance as of today, don't ever set foot on chung yuan

Brother, we shouldn't Cherish any feeling for anyone we must hate him, control him we adopted the wolf girl to

utilize her to kill all chung yuan acoundrels only she's merely our killing instrument remember that, understand?

Only we're triends you can't afford to lose get out!

You're the most despicable why follow me? I don't want you you don't want me? You must!

I want wolf girl...

No one would want you the way you look

How come there's word "lien" on you?

I only know it's my surname I have no name

everybody should have a name I've been living with wolves from childhood!

Chi wu-shuang adopted me and brought me to the cult she taught me kung fu and made her killing instrument

let me give you a name


Lien wu-kung?

Lien wu-kung?

I remember now, when I first saw you.

You were standing on the mountain-top and glittered with your dress reflected by the moonlight you should be named lien ni-Chang lien ni-Chang?

Let's get out of the underworld together

don't you begrudge wu tang?

Don't you begrudge the post of chief?

The underworld doesn't belong to us. Let them fight for it

what would you do if I should grow old with silver hair years late?

Don't worry have you heard of a fabulous flower blossoming each 2 decades that, once taken, can bring eternal life?

If you should go silver-haired, I'll bring the elixir to you by any means

Promise me, promise me what?

Don't ever distrust me.

I hate people who do

I swear

I swear under heaven I would be condemned if I should ever let lien ni-Chang down.

"Wait for me"

Why? Why let me down?

Speak up.

Don't get excited!

Adopt another wild one from a wolf lair and woo her when she grows up the only worry is your kung fu would've been disabled then

shut up!

I expended so much effort on you can this be done away with?

Once I decide on the course to take, I won't turn back is this your excuse for leaving the cult?

What do you want?

You knew what my brother wants

only if you let me leave the cult, you may do anything you like

Brother, no point licking all over her her heart is already somebody else's you picked a junk I've been your twin for such a long time and you don't even know a female's normal reaction you're getting out of your mind.

Have you given it to others?

Did you follow that wu tang scoundrel when you last disappeared?

He's not a scoundrel! He's Cho yi-hang

what has he given you?

A name I'm now lien ni-Chang, not a wolf girl everybody should've a name on birth

brother, what a common name so she wants only to be a common person

Lien ni-Chang

you want to be a common person now leave the cult like a commoner

Uncle kuei then became a general he dreamt of only then did I sense the meaning of what he said to me in shangaikwan

never expected that a hero that claimed to wipe out foreign tribesmen would've let the ching troops in at this juncture



Hell with you!

Remember, don't use your martial arts

Love, thy spell is irresistible shut up!


As I said, none can pass this

Can I leave now?


Sister, your bridal dress

Cho yi-hang

Tailor wu San-kuei led the ching troops into the pass at a time when the ming empire is critical and needs men to defend its territory you're having a tryst with a rival

ni-Chang and I have both decided to quit the underworld yi-hang, so you'd rather let your name stink in history because of that witch you may leave goddamn disciple you betray the one closest to you!

Brother, in any case, considering the master's upbringing you should return to explain everything to him

Hold it!

Since you left, the chief seldom spoke I think he's really peevish this time.

Think carefully how to explain to him

What's wrong?

The master's body...

Where's the master's body?

Find it! Find it now!


Uncle... uncle brother chief


hsin Cheng! Hsin Cheng

Brother hsin Cheng hsin Cheng it hurts badly hsin Cheng, tell me who did it?

Who did it? Tell me!

Tell me now, hsin Cheng!

Who did it? I don't want to die.

While you were away, the wolf girl brought men to kill us the wolf girl? She made it.

Never thought wu tang would end up this way!

She didn't do it!

What? She was brought up by a wolf, she must be brutal you brought rack and tuin to wu tang why don't you wake up?

Cho yi-hang, wake up

I've come to see Cho yi-Chang

witch, to see him after resorting to killing?



damn witch


Let's go

We only want to ask you one question

did you do it?

Their death is not linked to me all I want to know now is will you follow me?

Why did you do that?


Don't let her get away!

Kill this witch!

Why don't you trust me?

Don't ever distrust me.

I hate people who do I swear I swear under heaven I would be condemned if I should ever let lien ni-Chang down.

The witch is possessed. Kill her!

Ni-Chang she's dead



come here, come here

Master yi-hang, why didn't you take my advice all these years

but go against me in every way?

Yi-hang, you're doing me an injustice for bringing wu tang to such a state master, I...


Congratulations on your match. May you have a long and happy union

You may die tragically

Come out come out come out!

Brother, why take such an attitude towards me?

Watch out!

What have you got to take away my girl?

You want to know?

Brother, gouge out that bitch's heart for me

Come out what are you waiting for? Kill her! Kill her!

Kill her!

Hear me? Kill her!

Come on quick! Why don't you kill her?

Kill her!

Brother! Never knew...

You'd be stung by your own conscience

So it's great sleeping this way
