A royal descendant of an ancient winged tribe embarks on a quest to find magical pearls. When they fall into the hands of a human, he joins a team of unlikely heroes in a race against time to prevent the destruction of his people.
After seeing Oh My General I stumbled upon this Chinese web series on the internet. I was pleasantly surprised. Go Princess Go is a campy show, a strange blend of romcom, drama, and slapstick hinting to modern day rituals and topics like gender change and homosexuality. The show was taken off line by Chinese censors and came back with cuts in the original 35 episodes, leaving two alternate endings on line.
The plot: a modern playboy tries to avoid his ex-girlfriend(s) at a party and falls into a pool. He gets injured, nearly drowns, and somehow travels back in time. He wakes up in the body of a beautiful princess married to the crown prince of ancient China. Their marriage is a total sham since the prince openly hates her and shows his affection to his sister in law. The reborn princess changes everything at court though. Knowing quite well the habits of men she outsmarts many opponent, females included. Thinking and drinking like a man, and easygoing with all the concubines, she touches their bodies at random and piques the interest of several royal princes including her own husband. Question is: how will she cope with her transsexual life when love enters her heart.
Go Princess Go has an abrupt ending, perhaps due to troubles with the authorities, but the story kept me hooked until the end. Ideal for a Sunday afternoon binge watch.
