君臣情深-Latest VCD i watched...

Jennifer say:

Comment: A very good taiwanese opera by 楊麗花. But one bad point is some VCDs esp toward the ending are jumpy.It is mentioned in one site that Yang Li-hua, is using locations in Jiangnan (Zhejiang and southern Jiangsu) to film her new drama, Affection Between Ruler and Ruled.(君臣情深).No wonder some location esp the river part are extremely nice. China has such a wonderful view, how i wish i have the bamboo jade horse or the magic carpet like this show. The magic carpet remind me of Addadin sort of Princess Jasmine as this time, the owner of the magic carpet is a woman instead of a man.
It bit of confusing, here the v funny parts:
1) Father and son are born in the same year, same month and same day.
father and son are the same age. Is it called fate or is it supposed to be this way so that in the end, they can be siblings instead of father and son. It funny when it linked to point 2.
2) What i say is what is the truth is even thought i am not crazy.
ppl accepted that wongwenying was reborn again. I find it amusing when the emporor told his ministers that wong wenying had reborn as chowhu. If i am one the minsters, i will have question marks written on my face and considering to send the emperor to the hostel in hougang for special treatment. But in the past, what emperor say was what was to be learn, no word of protest like "hei, didn't he already die, why he back." I meant why his ministers accept what was supposed to be deemed to be the truth as it happened to pop out of the emperor mouth. And the emperor even can designated the same position to the new reborn wong wenying (as what his position was before he died) without again protest from his ministers.
3) Many wives are good for harmony
Another thing i find it funny are why father wong wenying and his son, wong bodong must each have 2 wives. It funny why ppl in the past accept many wives while in modern world, 2 wives meant the end of the world.
Even worse is before wongwenying died, he had 3 wives and all his 3 wives live in harmony. Ha..there a word say that 2 woman make a market (or something like this), with 3 women as wives, i wonder how is it supposed to happen.
4)Aunt and Neice can share the same husband
In the after life, wongwenying youngest wife was reborn to be daughter of wong eldest wife sister named ruhong. So in fact, the eldest wife and the reborn ruhong are aunt and neice. But it was accepted that they can still share the same husband even of their complicated relationship. Didn't accient ppl enjoy dragging ppl into pig sack to be drowned, if yes, how can ppl accept the complicated relationship. But in the end, the eldest desperate housewife decide to be a nun for the rest of her life.That is why i find her miserable. She got a son, she got a reborn husband and she care about how she look now at age 40 as compared to her reborn husband. If she did not care abt her relationship earlier with ruhong, why she care how old she is. Anyway in modern world, it is the trend to have older wife and younger husband esp the celebrity world.
5) Always marry your enemy daughter
In the show, there are two special parts where marrying enemies daughers. The first is wong wenying marrying xing yuexia. Xing yuexia's father was the main cause for wong wenying dad to die. The second part is where wong bodong (wenying son) marry pang qiuxiang. Pang qiuxiang is the granddaugher of pang hong. Pang hong was the mastermind in causing wong wenying death and the wong family to flee to jiangnam. It funny why enemies daughers are always so sweet and understandable. Aren't they supposed to be vain and cunning like their father as in the father like son, in this case, like father like daugher. Funny way why it done this way.
6) *shoo* shoo* Why so many of us cannot stop you for bumpin your head to death....
Wenying second wife commit sucide by bumpin her head against the pillar outside her husband house when she saw wenying had died. The funni part is there were lot of other ppl inside the house too. When fengling (the second wife) screamed that she wished to join her husband, the other reacted v slowly until she got a bleeding head that result in her death, then they all rushed out of the house. isnt they having snail step or will it be better if fengling choose a better way to die instead of running out of the house with no one stopping her. Wenying mum also died bumpin her poor head against the wall.. funny how easy is it for ppl in the past to commit sucide by bumping head. Wenying mum commit sucide as she was the one that cause the flying horse to lose its magicial powers. Once a woman touches the horse stick, it will be as useless as any normal stick. So When wenying realise his horse is useless, he fainted while his pathatic mother went back into the house to bump her head. *Ouch* One bump is all they need to die, isnt it painful if u did not die and end up with a bandgage on your head.

The casts even include a UY4 student,周孝虹 that cast as a wife of the main lead v well but somehow i find her face miserable.Most of her are crying, worry and whinnin to her husband. More of her profile in: I find yang lihua ok since it was say her role in this 2003 production are fewer as she did more on backstage production. Overall since this is her production, of course, she did a wonderful job in this repeat series.

My favorite actor is the lead cast: 陳亞蘭 as 小生(female as male role). More of her profile in:

I am super surprised had her profile. I never seen yang li hua profile in considered how many songs she has already sing. ha.
Not only she is able to perform her role as a male v well, i find her acting to be real good. Her teacher, yang in this case did a excellent job in training her since she joined the troop 18 years ago. Wow, still look so young and her photo in boxup if it is correct as it is taken now instead of 10 years ago is v beautiful. I mean like jolin tsai pattern.

Here the main cast list:(comments are what i find the casts like)
宋仁宗 ( 楊麗花 飾 )
( comment: a silly emperor that act like a child)

王文英 ( 陳亞蘭 飾 )
(comment: My favorite cast, wonderful performance as a male)

皇 后 ( 許秀年 飾 )
(comment: what the world going to be without her)

何 才 ( 紀麗如 飾 )
(comment: A extra that add little bit of joy to the show)

辛月霞 ( 周孝虹 飾 )
(comment: merisable version of desperate housewives)

辛秋霞 ( 楊淑涵 飾 )
(comment: a follower of her elder sister)

寇鳳玲 ( 林佩儀 飾 )
(comment: i prefer her afterlife where she is called meigu as i like her stubborness where she refused to accept her status as the youngest wife. After all, she was the offical wife of the reborn wenying as she was the first one to marry wenying (chow hu) rather than the other two. in her first life, she is the xiaojie where all she did was depend on her father, the prime minister for help. )

高昭傑 ( 伊 正 飾 )
(Comment: I like him also since he had the role of a hero where he turned from bad to good v well.)

高昭蓉 ( 林衣倩 飾 )
(Comment: A headstrong gal in both first and afterlife. I dun like her but not as much as the first wife,yuexia)

龐 洪 ( 黃 龍 飾 )
(Comment: a must have villian in every movies so that he will be killed in the end)
高如鳳 ( 童淑宜 飾 )
(comment: how lucky to have a godfather that was important to the empire of song)
龐秋香 ( 莊金梅 飾 )
(Comment: A clever gal that is every man dream to have but only in dream to have)
王安童 ( 陳志朋 飾 )
(Comment: Another merisable actor that had minor role only in this show, he bit of extra)

Once i watch the first few VCDs, i wanted to finish the whole series. 君臣情深 is actually not a new movie. It is mainly a repeat of 王文英 or rather yang lihua earlier VCDs based on the same story line but in the earlier version, yang lihua is 王文英 instead of 陳亞蘭. I did not really watch the earlier version but my mum say of little addition to this new version where:
1) The emperor and 王文英 went outing and the emperor asked wenying if there even is an afterlife, how do they recongnise each other. The emperor say he will find wenying till he find him. Then wenying ask the emperor in their afterlife, who want to be female and whom is male. They then draw stick to decide whom is the female in their supposed afterlife. The emperor draw a shorter stick.

2) The emperor cry till his eyes bleed after learning of wenying death and he cannot find wenying family.

There are some other additions that i dun have a strong impression.

I also like taiwanese opera songs. In this series, 91 songs were sung.
The songs can be found in:

StoryLine: Taken from:
