Coming soon, and a remake of the famous Princess Pearl.

The original series brought instant fame to Vicki Zhao, Ruby Lin and Alec Su.

I believe another set will too either become famous or famous flop.

 

I not sure how much will change however this storyline will includes a Western guy called Benjamin who will become part of a love triangle with no other than our lovable Xiao Yan.

 

Forgot about Princess Pearl

What do you think?

 

To be honest I not really a big fan of Zhao Wei however I am a big fan of her role as Princess Pearl. She give her character the unique big eye and amazing bubbly personality.

Her annoys and unique quick straight forward speech must be credit to the screenwriter, hopefully, their too can keep it up. (If it My Own Swordsman screenwriter this might be good)

 

I will give the new cast a chance before dismissing them. Would you?

 

I will write more once it start.

TVB has started promoting.

Series look awesome however it was suprising that they didn't pick a better looking actress to play as Xia Ziwei. She is average looking at most (Hai Lu), and really disappointed as she is one of the main role in the story. I can see actress Hai Lu who play as Ziwei does look like actress Li Sheng who play Xiao Yan Zi, maybe they try to make them look alike to show them that they are closely related as sisters.

The am a fan of the original one, but am also anticipating this new series. Afterall, it has been 13 years since this storyline has come across.

 

Opening theme: I really like the color! Music isn't bad, but the original still holds a stronger attraction.

 

First 2 episodes: Boy is there a lot of fighting... Honestly, those fighting scenes last for minutes and aren't at all significant to the story. Just take the funniest parts in the fight and that would suffice, but no, the director makes you watch minutes and minutes of it...

 

White guy is funny, but I'm not interested in his role. Feel that his addition had stripped away Yong Qi's scenes with Xiao Yan Zi, and wash away Er Tai's inital attraction for Xiao Yan Zi. I was really hoping to see more chemistry and development between Er Tai and Xiao Yan Zi; Er Tai's cast is quite cute... i

 

I would still be on the chase for this series though, it's a wonderful story to begin with.

I wasn't planning to watch this series. But thought will give it a chance. It too much like the original. Especially the theme tune. They even remade the story of Xiao Yan Zi stealing from a wedding and I then fighting to escape. I know it remake, but they can still create different theme music and new sences. It not bad, i just think original way better. I think the series will be good for people who never seen the original.

I had high hopes for this one since it's a remake but I also love the original with Vicki and Ruby. Not so sure about it now with the cast that was chosen. I'll have to wait and see. I'm sure it's different in it's own way from the original to make it interesting. Only time will tell I guess...

This is a great show, which I am longing to watch. Never really interesting to watch show from China. But this one is not the same. It had so many rumors and gossips online about it. I think TVB will be soon play this one, too.

It is not fair to compare the new to the old version. I heard that Hong kong have a pretty good reaction to this show

Not as bad as I expected. Xiao Yan Zi was casted well, she has natural 小燕子charm. The girl playing 小燕子 does a decent if not good job, even though her acting is a lot like Vicki Zhao's and she looks like Vicki, I don't feel like I'm watching a phony trying to copy Vicki.

 

The girl playing Zi Wei doesn't command empathy from the audience, which is really important for 紫薇‘s role... 紫薇 is supposed to WOW everyone with her beauty, gentleness, wisdom and inner strength, while drawing empathy from the audience because of her tragic life...

 

Even though Ruby Lin's acting wasn't very good in her 还珠格格 days, her giant watery doe-like eyes gave her a great advantage... she was very good at looking beautifully pitiful. This girl... doesn't have the beauty and the elegant 紫薇 aura.

 

I must say, this is much much much much better than the third series... that one had me shuddering, this one is fun to watch, and doesn't ruin my memories of 还珠格格 like the third series did.

I know I'm being harsh but I seriously I can't stand to watch this version (watched a few eps) I am a big fan of the old and this new version's Xiao Yan Zi is ugly. Could have picked a better looking girl for a main character.

Well, it can't be an exact replicate of the old one or else its just plain boring but Ruby Lin is going to special guest in it. I'm not sure abt the actresses, personally loved Vicki and Ruby. They are so pretty and portrayed the parts so perfectly.

honestly, i think that the benjamin is taking away yong qi and xyz's sweet scenes. i personally don't really like him there. but i've seen this xyz in calling for love and she caught my attention, so i think she's good.

At the beginning from "New Huan Zhu Ge ge" I dont like it much, because the actors are not beautiful. But now I like it a little bit because of "Xiao Yan Zi´s" funny action.

So far I think that Li Sheng is doing a good job of Xiao Yan Zi. She is mischievous and funny, but Hai Lu as Xia Ziwei was a horrible choice. She doesn't have the elegant or gentleness to be Xia Ziwei.

Watching the HD-720P TV version is really hard because it comes out a day later than the MangoTV ones! But for the quality & length of the show, it's worth it! Really love this drama & the new addition of Benjamin has its good & bad points, but I'm loving the changes in this drama because like that we can't totally compare it with the first version! The only thing I'm still complaining about, since episode 01, is the female actress who plays Zi Wei T_T She spoils my image of Zi Wei! ):
