really? which one? That's interesting because in China, the story of Liang Shanbo and Zhu Yingtai (butterfly lovers) is often compared to Romeo and Juliet (even though Liang Zhu's so much more sophisticated). Perhaps such stories are prevalent throughout all cultures.

actually, Twins debuted before SHE.
Personally, I like SHE better, but Twins isn't bad. And yes, Chunella forever!

Note: Since this is a "wuxia" version of Liangzhu, they changed the names of the characters, so I don't know their exact names, but I'm sure the last names are still the same.

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.

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? A tough Shanbo??? I wonder how that'll turn out.

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?


There's an older version isn't there?

From what I know, there's an older movie version, three drama versions, and an animated feature. But this one is going the wuxia route and making it a wuxia butterfly lovers

Actually, I've seen it, but I think it's a dubbed version of
the orginal The Butterfly Lovers movie with Nicky Wu and
Charlie Yeung in it.

is this gonna be a movie version or drama again? and i do agree..hu ge does look more like the shan bo type..but i guess it is good that he got a "new" role because all of his characters so far for his dramas have been about the same..and have tragic endings..

It's a movie again. The other movie wasn't bad, but not a classic.
Hu Ge hasn't played a bad character yet, but his roles are pretty different (smart punk, brave soldier, kind bookworm, slow hero). And Legend of the Condor Heroes doesn't have a bad ending...though I feel sorry because they had to make him look ugly on purpose, and then they change the plotline so that the already goodlooking evil character is good, greatly depreciating Hu Ge's character's importance.
