There have been many adaptations of this tragic love story, and this adaptation has to be the most complete adaptation I've watched. The build-up is excellent and convincing, setting the stage for the couple's strong and firm relationship. This is complemented by the brilliant acting by Dong Jie, who plays Zhu Ying Tai -- she executes the wit of a smart student and the charm of a lady perfectly. Peter Ho's performance was outstanding as well, playing the role of a down-to-earth scholar. The music in the show was lovely to boot, where the OP and EP were well suited to the theme of the show. In all, this show may be a little long (41 episodes), but it did not come across as draggy and all side stories were carried out nicely as well. It's worth a watch if you love this story!
This is a must-see adaptation of the Butterfly Lovers. I've seen it numerous times and will probably watch it again. The actors were all superb. The chemistry between the OTP were awesome... Make sure to have box of tissue if you plan to watch. Although the series included 41 episodes... I wanted it to last even longer... :)
