Go Princess Go gets a Korean remake

Go Princess Go Chinese network drama Crystal Zhang TianAi
Go Princess Go 太子妃升职记 is the example of a drama that managed to make it big despite humble beginnings. It's a show that had no money, no recognizable stars, but a lot of personality even if it comes with a ballsy humor that's not for everybody. The story is about a playboy who finds himself stuck inside the body of a princess in ancient times and gets caught between two men. It definitely sounds like something that would trigger the censorship authorities in China (which it did), but it became a hit anyway.

Three years later, and there's news that this will be getting a Korean drama remake very soon! According to recent reports, Fox Networks Group and Endeavor China are collaborating for the first time to bring this together and that it's slated to be 20-episodes long. It's still too early to be talking casting, and a part of me wonders whether the show would be able to retain its charm now that it would most definitely have a bigger budget.

  1. They'll probably tone it down if it's a network drama.. actually I can't even imagine JTBC, OCN, or TVN going as far as the original did.

  3. I don't think it should be remade into a Korean version. I mean Go Princess Go is a gem on its own and I find it hilarious but its comedy would get lost in translation or it has to be changed to adapt to the Korean audience *cough* Moon Lovers.

  4. It could work, I just hope they do a better job with GPG than with Scarlet Heart. While they are at it they should fix the confusing ending.
