Oooo! I would like for this to happen! The latest casting news has Chen Xiang (Tornado Girl) and Guo Xiao Ting (Chinese Paladin) up for the leading roles. They might change the two-wives storyline after all? YAY! Nicky Wu is listed as the artistic director and Liu Shi Shi might put in a cameo appearance for the upcoming webdrama produced by youku. Not even sure the word remake is the right word since the story is based of the novel…. Should say adaptation instead.
TVB’s Adaptation Released in 2001:
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.
Lol. What was he wearing. Still looking cute. XD
