Go Princess Go

Go Princess Go starring Zhang Tian Ai

I'm on a roll as far as Go Princess Go 太子妃升职记 is concerned, warranting my third post on the same topic on the same day. It is inconsequential compared to the big budgeted wuxia dramas nowadays but unique in a way that leaves you wanting.

Go Princess Go is a web series that explores time-travel, body-swap and rom-com in the historical setting of ancient China. It is based on a novel written by Xian Cheng 鲜橙 and it offers a hilarious twist to the typical period dramas. 

Due to lack of funds, you may have noticed that the sets are used repeatedly with minimal props and designs and that the most extravagant expenditures in the entire production are the costumes sewn from curtain linens. I wouldn't have cared because the everything translated beautifully onscreen.

The fact that it's so short is a plus factor too making it a fun and quick past time, though I wonder why the version I'm watching on LeTV seems to be missing a lot of scenes (edited: it's because of censorship).

The cast is was relatively unknown but the drama has been consistently growing its cult following and its stars receiving some much-deserved attention. Its popularity is mainly due to its controversial storyline and outrageousness that is much too out there for conservative China. 

Bad publicity is good publicity, since word of mouth quickly catapulted this drama ratings-wise, and it was actually very well-received by Chinese fans. If you are watching, be sure to check out the alternate endings.

Zhang Tian Ai 张天爱 headlines as Zhang Peng Peng, the modern man who finds himself waking up in the body of a crown princess. Where did they find this gorgeous lady? Aside from looks, she has the acting chops as well and her portrayal of Zhang Peng Peng was charming, witty and funny, easily claiming her spot as the breakout star of the drama.

Sheng Yi Lun 盛一伦 is the male lead Qi Sheng who is outwardly cold and arrogant so I have yet to reach the episode where he warms up as a character.

Yu Meng Long 于朦胧 stars as Jiu Wang, the second lead in the drama to complete the love triangle.

  2. great funny show, always LMAO because its too funny, yet not bad storyline. Love Peng Peng's insisting that the emperor can play around which only makes the emperor more frustrated and more and more determined to win over Peng Pengs love and capture her heart. If you haven't what it then do so its a hoot. Male costumes are so not in keeping with the era. all of Peng Pengs dresses are amazing.
