Andy Chen Yi as the Legendary Flower Boy Gao Changgong aka Lan Ling Wang


Although he may not have the bravado nor the acting chops of or lack thereof of Feng Shao Feng, I do think that he fits the role much better aesthetically. He IS a “flower boy” and looking at the stills, you could actually understand why he had to cover that pretty face. Unlike FSF, who looks rather manly than delicate.

You could tell he looks good even with the mask on

I remember the scene where Lan Ling Wang and Xue Wu met for the first time while he was taking a bath by the small lake (or was it a falls?) Xue Wu immediately took off her clothes and joined in thinking that he was a woman. I was like, seriously?! Which angle? Just because he had long hair doesn’t make him look any less than a man. It had its flaws, yes, but was still a good series especially with Ariel Lin who makes everything she does wonderful.

Princess of Lan Ling or what I’d like to call the younger version of Prince of Lan Ling, looks promising enough. The core is still the same, that is the love triangle among Gao Changgong-Princess of Lan Ling-Yuwen Yong. But this time, Yuwen Yong’s character takes the lead while Lan Ling Wang takes the back seat.

Upcoming Mainland Series “Princess of Lan Ling”


Don’t be mistaken. The series has nothing to do with Prince of Lan Ling (Feng Shao Feng, Ariel Lin) although the place where all the events transpired and the characters are one and the same. This series however is adapted from the 2009 novel with the same title by Yang Qian Zi.

Legend has it that if one possesses the Qinglun mirror, peace will be obtained. But on the wrong hands, will bring chaos. It tells the story of modern girl Yuan Qing Suo/Li Ezi (played by Zhang Han Yun) who was sworn to protect the secret of the ancestral mirror. Her journey takes her deep into the Northern Zhou kingdom at the the time of unrest and war during the Eastern Jin Dynasty. She will be caught in the political crossfire as well as love entangles with Emperor Yuwen Yong (Peng Guan Ying) of Zhou and Prince Gao Zhang Gong (Chen Yi) of Lanling.

Princess of Lan Ling 兰陵王妃 is directed by the famous Hongkong director Yi Yezhao and stars Zhang Han Yun, Peng Guan Ying and Taiwanese cutie Andy Chen.

Comparison to Prince of Lan Ling is inevitable since they have the same theme. It is also a tall order to accomplish what the previous has accomplished in terms of success.  From the cast down to production, one can safely assume that this is a modest series compared to it’s predecessor.
