I like how they say it’s airing in October and I look at the calendar….only 7 days left to go now, production team! 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’m…not sure how I feel about this. I’m not a massive fan of the TVB version (played by Louis Koo) and seriously hope Chen Xiang isn’t as lecherous in this one as the male lead (Hong Siu-lung) originally was O_O – did they change the name of all the female characters?

    I’m a fan of the original TVB “A Step Into the Past”! But I’m not a fan of this cast. The main guy looks too scrawny to pass off as a strong HXL. At the very least, tan the guy so he looks like he does actual outside work!

    And the female cast…eh. No one really catches my eye. I will watch just because I’m a huge fan of the original, but this seems like a remake disaster from the stills & posters. Too pretentious and poor casting.

    I’m a fan of the original but it was the story that was so interesting so I’ll be willing to give it a shot. However – and it’s a big however – a big plus in the original show is that all the actors looked old enough and physically big enough to actually be the characters. I know Louis Koo isn’t everyone’s cup of tea but he could walk the walk! The sight of Nicky Wu next to the lead just showed how much better an older actor would be. I know pretty is the new manly but I want a general or a swordsman who looks like he could kiss someone’s butt.

      Whoops – autocorrect is not my friend. “Kick some butt” not “kiss some butt” That would a whole ‘nother kind of show!

      Oh yeah. Compared to Louis koo who is older, buff, rough skin the new guy is really too much like a beautiful boy. Looks like an idol show. His xiao long would definitely be a different taste. LK had so much charisma that though he’s a cheater people are even willing to be understanding, that those women just can’t help liking him.

      I hate most tvb shows but ASITP was really good. I really like how nobody even look that beautiful in there but it’s such a good show. Proved how good everyone’s acting was . It will be a better choice to change the entire new story to avoid comparisons. But I really like Guo xiao ting, glad she got a role.

    TVB’s version is a classic. Louis Koo nailed his performance. Not too fond of the casting. Looks like an idol drama.

    Why can’t they cast a more mutual lead actors. This seems like idol drama to me.

      “idol” is one of the tags for this drama on Youku.

    I was curious if they were ever going to do another version of A Step Into the Past, and I guess it was coming sooner or later.

    The costuming looks too bright for the time period though lol I agree with Menam, it looks more like an idol drama.

    What’s interesting is that it’s going to be 20 episodes. Are they planning on spacing out the novel into seasons?

    I thought China banned time travel dramas? Did the ban get lifted?

    • 16 thoughts on “Chen Xiang and Guo Xiao Ting lead A Step Into The Past 2017

      From my understanding, either the banned never existed in the first place, or it meant nothing.

      There’s a bunch of time traveling series and movies ever since the banned. lol

    Nooooo, and I was really excited when they announced the remake too. But of course, they are going to change everything, from the storyline to the character relationship. Guess it is time to go back to the TVB version

    Poor receptions here so far. lol

    Looks fun to me, I’m down. Thought the TVB version was decent.

    I don’t mind the young looking cast. I like watching young people. Sign me up. 😀

    Agree that the male lead looks too pretty boy that it feels like an idol drama again. And the colours like other commenters said, are a little too bright. Sometimes I really miss the nice colour tone in the past like those in TVB. As an audience, I feel more comfortable without those bright colour tone, and it feels more legit like more ancient feel. Ancient dramas nowadays focus too much on the prettiness that it doesn’t even feel legit to the particular dynasty or period.

    I didn’t know Nicky is in this drama as well! Great to see him again!

    The costuming and set design for “modern” scenes look so cringeworthy. hope they are kept to the minimum.
