K.O. San Guo (2017)

K.O. San Guo


Comic Entertainment has repackaged the 2009 Taiwanese school idol drama as K.O. San Guo New Ultimate 终极三国 and in keeping with the trademark concept of K.O. One, it follows a group of martial arts endowed students as they battle it out in the Three Kingdoms Era. 

It begins when Zhi Ge and his friends are en route to the Silver Dimension to visit Sun Shang Xiang. A time warp occurs and Zhi Ge gets stuck in the Gold Dimension. He accidentally knocks Liu Bei unconscious and is shocked to find that they look exactly alike. Given that Liu Bei is an integral player during the Three Kingdoms Era, Zhi Ge pretends to be Liu Bei so as not to mess up the progression of events in this timeline.   

K.O. San Guo ladies

If you are not familiar with K.O. One, you might find the whole thing outrageous, and in a lot of ways, it really is but it has a unique appeal that has worked for the franchise many times before. I quite enjoyed the previous versions headlined by Jiro Wang even though it is corny and cheesy as heck because ultimately, I grew attached to the characters and their story of friendship underneath the flashy antics. I honestly didn't like the earlier KO San Guo, but I wouldn't be surprised if this upcoming adaptation brings the same sense of humor. 

The series is headlined by Sam Lin, Wayne Huang, Evan Ma, Ian Yi, Lucia Chen, Eunice Zhong Yu, Zhao Yaoke and Chen Shi Min, most of which are members of the Taiwan Mandopop boyband SpeXial and girlgroup A'N'D Angel’N’Devil.

Release Date: June 19, 2017 on Youku, iQiYi and GTV

  1. isn't there a huge plot hole tho? So Zhi Ge (gold dimension) and friends went to visit ah Xiang who was a huge female role in the original ko 3anguo, who became xiu's wife after he visited the silver dimension and pretended to be liu bei.
    Then how the heck can liu bei suddenly become a person who looks like zhi ge?! it doens't make sense does it? let's say that its completely loose from the original ko 3naguo, even then it is still connected to the gold dimension, right? since they're visiting ah xiang who they know via xiu so no matter how you see it there are bound to be plotholes!
    unless they're making this is as a series that has nothing to do with anything of the ko unviserse and have to introduce everything from information?
    ko series used to have plot holes but i'm afraid this one will create more plotholes than necessary

    1. Yess.. either the synopsis in the Chinese website is wrong or the plot hole is bigger than I thought. I actually did watch KO San Guo but I only remember that Xiu pretended to be Liu Bei. Didn't remember until you pointed out that Pets Tseng's Sun Shang Xiang was basically the lead for KO San Guo.

      Maybe an explanation could be that this new story is in Gold Dimension whereas the original KO San Guo was in Silver? I'm just grasping at straws though. If you happen to watch, please let me know:)

    2. i hope the synopsis is a bit wrong, it used to happen to ko series that a not so right synposis came out, right? :S
      yeah Pets Tseng started with Ah Xiang before getting more counterparts in other dimensions. Cause her golden dimension counterparts know Ah Xiang, they met before.

      i'l definitely watch it so might come back here to leave some comments about it, remind me of it? xD
      no it won't be in the gold dimension (i think that part was also translated wrong) since Zhi Ge is from gold dimension but he went on a trip through dimensions with his friends (which are probably sam and other known Spexial members) and ko 3anguo is the silver dimension, i wonder if they're gonna give it an entire different story plot (even though its still trhee kingdoms) or make it a direct remake? probably not since the charries are different
      UNLESS! this KO 3anguo is not part of the silver dimension but a new not yet known dimension? Then it would make sense, they went to visit ah xiang in silver dimension (which is still weird, shouldn't she be in iron dimension?), the wrap hole thingie happend and zhi ge got stuck in another dimension that is like the Thee kingdoms as well?

      omg there are endless possibilities in this universe xD

  2. It is a bit off but if you watched KO One remember, they introduce the real Sun Shang Xiang who is the original silver dimension counterpart. She escaped when Yi Na La Ha Si Ti killed her family and take their place. The show ended with her finally returning back to the silver dimension. But yes I dont like the approach theyre taking because Liu Bei was already shown as Xiu
