I have high regard for timeless classics but even I think that three's a crowd with the addition of yet another Chinese drama inspired by the Legend of the White Snake 白蛇传.
When I first heard of a New Legend of Madam White Snake, I was stoked at the thought and intrigued with the secrecy surrounding a cast whose faces have yet to be revealed to this day. Then I hear even better news that Yang Zi and Ren Jialun will headline another version titled The Destiny of White Snake.
I have to admit though that my interest is beginning to wane after hearing that one more remake has began filming last March. It sticks to the traditional story about a white snake saved by a simple man. She vows to remain in his gratitude forever thus paving the way for a forbidden romance.
Given three very similar shows, it's got to be a challenge to stand out, if at all. The series stars Sun Xiao Xiao, Lu Hong, Zhang Tian Yang and Wang Yu.
