Looks like the next IT boy receiving casting love calls left and right is William Chan (Legend of the Ancient Sword, The Legend of Zu). I’m not sure I like this… The original did bring fame and attention to the rising group of newbies led by Louis Koo and the talented Kwong Wah. When I was younger, I liked A Step Into The Past a lot… Time travel was a novel idea back in the days and who knew TVB was the pioneer of many things ages ago (heh). A Step Into The Past is an ancient drama produced by TVB in 2001; the story is based on a novel of the same name by Huang Yi and follows a police officer (Louis) 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. Raymond Lam played the first emperor of Unified China, aided by Louis along the way.
Look at the old cast below. TVB can’t pull of a wuxia or ancient drama of the same caliber anymore. It’s a good thing China is remaking this so the chances of new blood is high!
I really like the theme sang by Louis Koo.
I hope my girl crushes stay far away from this production cause the male lead is a player! He’s nice but can’t keep his heart to one lady… All the girls in the drama love him. If I could change one thing, it’s the ending! SPOILERS: How infuriating for the two ladies to share one man… I know it’s the ancient times but he’s a modern man! TSKKK.
Despite my complaint, I did like the comedic scenes… Maybe I will do a quick rewatch!
