Storyline

This was the series that brought Vicki Zhao to fame all around Asia. Starring as the cheerful, energetic and adorable Xiao Yan Zi, Vicki managed to capture the audience's heart with her portrayal! Generally, the series is about a street girl, Xiao Yan Zi, who in a mix-up ends up as a Princess (officially titled Huan Zhu Ge Ge) instead of her sworn sister (played by Ruby Lin). The adventures continue as Xiao Yan Zi tries to adjust to palace life, falls in love with the fifth prince (played by Alec Su), makes enemies with the Empress, and all the while trying to give her sworn sister back the title of Princess.

A young girl from Ji Nan named Xia Zi Wei is out to find her father, on the road she meets the adventurous Little Swallow.
28 January 2007 | by See all my reviews

A movie filled with romance, comedy, family entertainment, and also many touching scenes, Huan Zhu Ge Ge is definitely Qiong Yao's best work ever! I can't help but watch it over and over again. This story tells about a young girl named Xia Zi Wei who travels from Ji Nan To Beijing accompanied by her maid Jin Suo, to find her father after her mother died. Her mother leaves her a painting and a fan for Zi Wei to prove that she is the Emperor's daughter. In Beijing, Zi Wei seeks for help from a minister to meet the Emperor and meets Little Swallow, an orphan girl. Little Swallow agrees to help Zi Wei and they soon become sworn sisters. Little Swallow told Zi Wei that the emperor was going hunting on a mountain. After Zi Wei tries to climb the mountain and hurts herself, she begs Little Swallow to climb the mountain and tell the Empreror her story. Little Swallow climbs the mountain and soon gets shot by an arrow by mistake. When the Empreror sees Little Swallow's fan and painting, he convinces himself that Little Swallow was his long lost daughter.
