Meanwhile, Zi Wei is falling for Er Kang, a minister and private guard of the king. While in the palace, Xiao Yan Zi has caught the eye of her ‘brother’, Yong Qi who is the fifth prince.

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.

I am not sure which version of huan zhu gege is better yet, i personally perefer the old casts, the old one was the most impressive, but i have to say the new version of Xiao yanzi is really good, Li Sheng is a very good Xiao Yanzi. but i dont like Rong Mo Mo, she acts too funny, not devil enough.

瓊瑤透露,新《還珠格格》的創作一直以“快樂”為主題,並不在乎是否超越舊版。

http://zh.wikipedia.org/wiki/%E9%82%84%E7%...%96%E5%8A%87%29 (as of Aug 2th)

 

According to Qing Yao, the purpose of this version is written based on the theme of "happy". It doesn't care if it will or will not be better than the older version.

I think Qiong Yao was smart to make this Xiao Yan Zi "smarter" than the old one, and the addition of Benjamin does make the series funnier. I also like how they expanded on how people are mistaking Zi Wei to loving the Emperor romantically. It makes more a better storytelling, in my opinion.

 

Sure, there are some parts I can do without, but as a whole (so far), I do like this series. Time will tell if I like it better than the original. The characters are more three-dimensional, I think.

 

What really annoys me though, is the new Zi Wei. I think it's because in the original, it seems like Vicki and Ruby were the two leads and the new Zi Wei here is more like a secondary character. Which makes more sense because the title of this drama is about Xiao Yan Zi, but it just annoys me.

love this drama, although is adopted from the own series but it contains its own style and has new elements in this drama. It shows each characters their own personal character, very fun to watch! Can't wait to see the up coming EPS!!!

Comparisons are going to be made. There's no avoiding that. I have things that I liked and I things that I absolutely cannot stand. I enjoy comedy but then there's also too much of it. I do not like Benjamin's character because I think his purpose serves no purpose. In this remake, I actually wanted the love triangle between Er Tai, Yong Qi, and Xiao Yan Zi to be more pronounced. Instead Er Tai's attraction doesn't even exist. Li Sheng has her own charm as Xiao Yan Zi but she tries too hard sometimes and it hinders on her performance. However, I do like the fact that they show progress in Xiao Yan Zi's educational progress. It makes her smarter. Though I love Sheren Tang, her acting talent is wasted. The Empress is supposed to be the villain yet the writing has placed a comedic sense into her role. Rong Mo Mo, the actress is a big disappointment. If she's made out to be evil then she should be. She delivers her line as if this was solely a comedy show. It's about family, love, and overcoming obstacles with dashes of tasteful comedy. Personally, I think there's too much comedy in this version.

 

However, I am liking the fact that Qiong Yao is expanding on Xiao Yan Zi's background. I'm loving the vibrant colors of the show and the gorgeous costumes. I think the new Er Kang has the strongest acting capability among the young actors.
