Oh is this a remake of the 2001 Hong Kong TVB classic Step Into the Past?  If so here's a quick synopsis!  

 

    

Spoiler

  A modern man attempts to travel back in time so to win back his girlfriend who has broken up with him to marry another. Instead he is transported 2000 years back into Spring and Autumn Period of ancient China, where he befriends and becomes a teacher-mentor to a young forgotten but kindhearted prince, and finds himself embroiled into the making of history, politics and love. Little did he know this weak naive student of his, was to become Ying Zheng, ruthless founder of the Qin dynasty, who would go down in history as the tyrant  who unified China - the first Emperor of China Qin Shi Huangdi. 

 

     That series will always remain one of my most beloved TV shows, and it's crazy to think it's been 16 years since. REALLY can't wait for this one, hope this remake will do it every justice. Louis Koo's performance as the witty, comedic but sympathetic Han Taifu (teacher Han) was gold, and whoever in this remake role will have some serious shoes to fill.

@peanutbutterjellytime Another drama discussion!! :D I truly love this drama when Louis Koo was the main character.  I still rewatch it from time to time! 


      Hi!!! nice to see ya here too *waves* :D   YES Louis Koo was everything!!!  Wouldn't it be awesome if he gets a cameo appearance here just to satisfy the fans of the original?!  Step Into the Past never would've became the classic that it is without him. Sadly it was also one of the last good TVB dramas for me :(  

    If this is indeed a remake, the only thing I hope this version changes is 

Spoiler

  The main male ending up with two women.  As I was a little younger then, I didn't think too much of it. But rewatching it now, polygamy certainly doesn't sit too well with me.  Or am I alone on this?

--- I think it's okay for that time period.  The story back then justified why he married both woman. Though I thought the girl (Jessica Hsaung)'s story was a bit more forceful. I didn't feel that he loved her as much as the other one.  I felt he was sorry for her being raped, that's why he married her.  He had more chemistry with the assassin. 

 

 

*waves* Funnily, I don't watch Chinese drama that much any more.  But it looks like 2017 and 2018 will change that.  

It was definitely on the best drama TVB ever made. And I believe it was Louis Koo's last appearance for TVB.

I hope the main character will be wearing a T-shirt and boxer walking around in ancient China. :D 

 (see in hidden spoiler for other comments. )

  Yup that was Louis' last TVB drama. And I stopped watching TVB dramas for awhile now, these days for C-series fix I tune into mainland Chinese dramas which has improved lots in quality and visuals. 

  Hoping they manage to incorporate the humor that made the first one such a hit.  Might need to rewatch again before this one comes out :)  

  

Spoiler

     Too many K-dramas and recent Chinese drama trend with the male lead who loves only one kinda ruined it for me I suppose :tongue:   Didn't like Louis with Sonija, thought he had better chemistry with Jessica Hsuan like in DIV 4  and enjoyed him with Joyce Tang. I even thought if he was gonna have more than one, might as well take her too!

@peanutbutterjellytime looks like it's just me and you on this thread for now. :tongue: I also loved DIV 4!! Such a great drama. TVB story quality went way down and C-drama mainland did go up. 

Seriously, why didn't he just marry all three!?! I was wondering the same thing at the end. 

 

Truly hope this drama will have the same sense of humor. I do like traveling back in time story.

Chen Xiang and Guo Xiao Ting will be leading the remake of Huang Yi’s novel, which was adapted in 2001 by TVB called A Step Into The Past; the new adaptation has a mouthful name…. A Legend of A Modern Man Gets Back to Qin Dynasty, the story follows a police officer as he travels back in time to the warring periods of China and gets involved in many historical events leading to the unification of China under the Qin dynasty.

I read 60% of the comments there... and I found one comment which kinda makes sense a bit:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-O-RZA5cQFI&lc=Ugw1a2b3G1meBXalbHh4AaABAg

"大多数的人思想还很封闭,不能接受新的东西". It figuratively means people are conservative by nature, can't accept new things.


Personally, I will not compare this to the novel and the 2001 TVB one. Oh, humans...
And I also noticed some foreigners asking for subs. It means it's good for them... or they simply did not see the flaws in it?

Thoughts?

from my personal experience....when drama / movies are adapted out of a book....comparisons will happen.....what i did is i read the books if im interested and then i watch the movies / dramas if my interest is prick......

 

but i stop real short on comparing much.....as i tends to take books by its own or drama by itself lols :)

My 2 cents...
Watch it from the "standalone" point of view, you will be better. If you're expecting the same carbon copy from the previous version, then you're gravely mistaken. I like the new elements of it.

Just caught sight of this "remake" and I like it so far.

 

It's a big shoes to fill because of the original but it's such a norm that different country will try to adapt the story and produce into something of their own. But it doesn't bother me. However there's so much negative comments on this.

 

It's just so weird that Meteor Garden can have Japanese version, Korean version. Same goes for Scarlet Heart, Fated to Love you and many more.

 

So why not this?

 

I really hope people will stop comparing and give this a chance.

I'm at episode 11 now and I have a feeling that the angst will happen soon. Not sure if I am prepared for the fun to end soon.
