First Impression: What do you think of the Handsome Siblings with Hu Yi Tian and Chen Zhe Yuan?

My first version of this story by Gu Long was the Taiwanese version with Jimmy Lin and Alec Su, followed by the TVB version with Tony Leung and Hugo Ng, then HK version with Dicky Cheung and Nicholas Tse.

He’s unconventional, a prankster, and has tricks up his butt-hole. Lol. The newer version seems to favor the other twin more (played by Hu Yi Tian, he’s the more popular actor of the two), who was raised in a female-only palace, by a cold lady conspiring to see the brothers at each other’s throats. Why? Because their father rejected her and eloped with one of her slave girls! And this is her revenge plan.

The drama will air on CCTV, Qiyi, and Netflix, starting 1/16.
