aka Sword Butterfly aka Wuxia Butterfly Lovers

coming out on 10/16/2008



Note: Since this is a "wuxia" version of Liangzhu, they changed Liang Shanbo to Liang Zhongshan, Zhu Yingtai to Zhu Yanzhi, and Ma Wencai to Ma Cheng'en

And note, this is based on one of the four classic legends of China. If it sounds like a Hana Kimi-copy, it's not. Personally, I thought Hana Kimi stole...I mean, borrowed... the storyline from here.

btw...someone has just uploaded the beautiful animated feature, so I would recommend you to watch it if you liked other versions of it, pretty cartoons, Romeo and Juliet, Mulan, or awesome movies in general:

Basic storyline:
In ancient China, girls are not allowed to go to school. So, in order to pursue her studies, Zhu Yingtai (Charlene of Twins) dresses up as a boy and goes to school. Note that she is of high class. Her roommate becomes Liang Shanbo (Wu Zun of Fahrenheit), a studious and kind student who is rather slow on everything but study. Shanbo is poor, but came from an once prestigious scholar family. They, obviously, share the same bed. To prevent anything from happening, Zhu Yingtai puts a bowl of water in between the two of them. However, that didn't prevent their relationship from developing. Meanwhile, Ma Wencai (Hu Ge), is rich and spoiled. He finds out about Yintai's true identity and attempts to marry her. Eventually, because they are of the same class, Wencai convinces Yingtai's family to let them be betrothed. Shanbo finds out she's a girl, but has already been sent to become the mayor of a small village.


In this version, however, I hear that Shanbo will be smarter while Wencai will be nicer. Furthermore, it'll be a "wuxia" version of Liang Zhu, so it will change from a scholarly Shanbo to a fighting one...

And note, this is based on one of the four classic legends of China. If it sounds like a Hana Kimi-copy, it's not. Personally, I think Hana Kimi borrowed the storyline from here.

I, personally, really liked the 2007 version of Liang Shanbo and Zhu Yingtai with Peter Ho and Dong Jie.
Also, I think Hu Ge and Wu Zun should switch roles. Hu Ge seems more Liang Shanbo-ish. He just played Guo Jing in Return of the Condor Heroes, who's pretty similar to Shanbo. Wu Zun's good-looking, but he doesn't have that "da qi" feel. I can't imagine him sacrificing himself for the people.
And is it true that they switched Gillian to Charlene because of the scandal?


i made the same forum...
