Which drama has had the most remakes?

As far as I know, it's the Condor Trilogy....

LoCH has at least six dramas (3 hk, 1tw, and 2 mainland) and four movies
RoCH has at least seven dramas (3 hk, 2 tw, 1 mainland, and 1 Singapore), six movies, and an anime.
Heaven Sword and Dragon Saber will have at least seven dramas (3 hk, 3tw, 1 mainland in progress) and two movies.
This doesn't count the numerous drama/movies that borrow the characters or parts of the plot but aren't really remakes (Kung Fu Hustle, Westside Story, Legend of Brown Sugar Chivalry, etc)

As for parodies, there must be a gazillion of movie/drama/anime/ related to the Journey to the West (Saiyuki in Japanese, Xi You Ji in mandarin).

Any others?

Wow, that's a lot.
The only ones I can think of are:

Hana Yori Dango - Japanese, Taiwanese, and Korean remakes
Hana-Kimi - Japanese, Taiwanese, and rumored Korean remake

I'd say Journey to the West, that's something I've watched since I was a little kid.

I'm just now trying to get back into WuXia...which Condor Heroes should I watch first?

well, there are two dramas, two movies, and one animated feature that I know of. There are also some opera-movie versions and countless songs about it (after all, it's the reason why butterflies are mentioned in every other Chinese love song).

Semi-Gods and Demi-Devils
It's the best one out of the recent dramas.
