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.

Great Series
24 March 2010 | by blackdragonwingzSee all my reviews

I saw this about 10 years ago and I still love it! Quite a long series, but you go through just about every emotion while watching this. There are 4 main characters, and the series itself is family friendly for the most part. The plot is pretty solid, with plenty of twists and turns in each of its episodes.

One of the 4 Dan Actresses is in this film- "Vicky" Zhao Wei (the other more famous one is Zhang Ziyi of House of FLying Daggers fame), and this is the series that boosted her to that position.

This is definitely worth watching, and took China by a storm. Households everywhere have watched this and loved it.

(The series was so popular that it garnered Huan Zhu Ge Ge II and III, but it loses a few of the original actors and the plot becomes more and more filler-like, so don't bother too much)
