Stuart Heritage: It's set in a fairytale castle and features giants in armour, trampolines and karaoke. Surely something this silly could only have been created by geniuses.
When you’re trying to win over your Prince Charming, can you find him in an unexpected place? Lin Xing Chen is an heiress of a wealthy family but faces pressure to marry well because of her illegitimate status.
Her target? The suave and wealthy Zheng Chu Yao, a fellow student at the elite arts school known as Four Leaf College. But due to a number of misunderstandings, Xing Chen at first mistakes the brooding Jiang Nian Yu as Chu Yao and tries to get his attention.
But when Xing Chen realizes she has the wrong man, she keeps running into Nian Yu in the most compromising ways and then learns that Nian Yu is the only person who can teach her to tango to be able to get into Chu Yao’s good graces.
But Xing Chen is annoyed when Chu Yao only seems interested in a poor student, Yu Yang Yang, who was admitted to the prestigious school because her father saved the principal’s life. Can Nian Yu teach Xin Chen to tango right into Chu Yao’s heart or will she discover that her destiny is with someone else?

I have to admit that at first I watched it because of Mike D. Angelo who plays the part of Jiang Nian Yu but to my surprise I really enjoyed this drama and all the cast. This is not the drama of the century and there is nothing new in dramaland but the story of the OTP was really cute. I enjoyed every little moment they had! To my surprise, I really liked the heroine. She is rich, haughty but honest and has a wild imagination.
She's a fan of BL mangas and it was really funny to follow her mind. It was refreshing to see the "poor and the innocent girl" as the villain second lead. The OST "Because of You" by By2 will stay in your head! At the end, there was a lot of flashbacks but I am very happy to not have missed this drama! I highly recommend it! Rewatch Value 9.5 This drama is adorable. It's lighthearted and fun with a not so typical female lead. The main character as opposed to being poor and shy like your typical heroine is a rich girl who ,while definitely spoiled, is very confident in herself, knows exactly who she is, and is nicer than everyone gives her credit for.
I binged the whole series and didn't regret it. The acting is great, lots of laughs all the way through, the romance is swoon-worthy (ugh the main guy's devotion to her is unreal ~jealous~), and even the more emotional parts of the drama are well done. No, this is not a masterpiece but definitely worth watching.
best my little princess dating shows - Princess Online Dating
On Monday night, E4 launched a new dating show that involved fairytale fancy dress, power ballad singing and catapults. My Little Princess is the latest in a long history of bonkers dating shows that have made it to the small screen and in tribute to the TV commissioners who considered them wise ideas and in any way romantic, we've collected together our 15 personal favourites. My Little Princess Men dressed as princes, who must impress an evil king to secure a date with his daughter.
Standard. Throw in lots of mud, talking horses, power ballad sing-offs and men being thrown off bridges. Obviously. My Little Princess blends Tool Academy and Takeshi's Castle to make the ultimate dumb dating show. Playing It Straight One girl, some gay men, some straight men and the challenge for the female to pick a lover who is genuinely interested in a date and not just stealing in on the cash.
If she picks a straight man to date, they split the cash. If a gay man is chosen, he steals all the cash and the woman is left with nothing but a red face. Silly, but fun. There's Something About Miriam One of the most controversial series of all time, it's incredible looking back that Sky1 managed to get away with this shock-TV series and more importantly get it past their lawyers. Featuring six men wooing 21-year-old Mexican model Miriam, there was one significant twist - Miriam was a pre-operative trans woman.
Unsurprisingly, when they found out at the finale, the blokes were not best pleased and pursued legal action. The Choice Fox poked fun at broadcasting rival NBC's hit talent show The Voice with this celebrity dating series that was clearly a case of a title first, format second. Featuring celeb men and women spinning their chairs around based only on 'sexy details' and the voices of the contestants, it was as sophisticated as a McDonald's Happy Meal.
A Shot at Love with Tila Tequila The first and probably last celebrity bisexual-themed reality show was similar to the previously mentioned Flavor of Love, swapping out the Public Enemy rapper for Z-list sexpot Tila Tequila. Playing on Tila's open-minded approach to romance, there were both men and women competing for her affections. Sadly despite getting a second season, Tila failed to find her true love. Heartbreaking stuff. Joe Millionaire A cunning twist within a twist made this dating series a worldwide hit.
20 women competed for the affections of Evan Marriott believing that he was a millionaire, when in fact he was a construction worker. The second twist came when the final selected woman was told the truth about his finances. If she stuck with him, they both won a real cheque for a million dollars. If she proved to be fickle and all about the money, they missed out. Temptation Island Perhaps it wasn't technically a dating show (It was more of a splitting-up show), but we threw this in for good measure because it was suitably ridiculous.
Featuring couples having their relationships put to the test by being placed on a sexy island with sexy singletons and challenged in sexy games, it was very, well, sexy. Love Shaft Another case of a show that was most probably commissioned on its title before it even had a (ropey) format, E4's Love Shaft featured desperate singletons taking a ride in the 'Love Shaft' *ahem* and meeting fellow sexy singles along the way for speed dating-esque meets.
Ridiculous, awful and tackier than an Imogen Thomas photoshoot.
Advertisement Any TV programme that involves men getting into fancy dress and being catapulted into a lake, or running about in mouse costumes, is in mortal danger of being compared to It’s a Knockout. And a female contestant putting prospective suitors through their paces with tasks which include serenading her from the other side of a wall, or trying to guess what type of fast food she prefers, obviously owes a debt to Blind Date, among others.
But examined in a bit more detail, E4’s new series is arguably the starkest example you could hope to find of how television has changed in the last few decades.
Listen to this: the catapult in question is connected to a lie detector, operated by a man – admittedly, dressed as a wizard, but actually called Dr David Lewis, not Merlin – who, we’re told, is a professional psychologist. A shake of his head after he spots a needle quiver and the bloke in the catapult is history, launched 30 feet into the air by a character known as The King (the eponymous Princess’s dad).
A prospect which, in itself, is enough to mess with anyone’s galvanic skin response (not to mention their head). And what about the men in mouse suits. Rather than having a laugh falling over because they’re wearing cumbersome costumes, the suitors are blinded and challenged to run directly at one another in a kind of weird humanoid-rodent jousting. Actually, scratch the superfluous “weird” from that sentence – I’m happy to go so far as to say that humanoid-rodent jousting is, by its very nature, weird.
It’s dangerous, too – one young suitor has a visible bruise and look of self-loathing on his face after losing his bout. Here, an outwardly innocent guessing game – does she prefer KFC or Burger King? – is enough to give , conducted as it is by a chuckling disembodied horse with a flapping lower jaw and a giant gift ribbon stuck to its head.
And the singing part – which is suddenly and without warning thrust upon us as the endgame – quickly turns into a bizarre sort of music video (a bit like a more serious version of a Horrible Histories number). Even the Princess gets involved, despite the fact that she’s supposed to be concentrating on her suitors’ singing.
The prevasive sense of paranoia is only accentuated by the fact that it’s impossible to be sure whether or not The King is actually the genuinely frightening East End gangster he appears to be or an actor – or neither, or both – while the eerie fairtytale music and high-saturation cinematography all come together to create a nightmarish cartoon world more reminiscent of other recent Channel 4 productions Utopia and Black Mirror than a knockabout dating game show.
E4 know all this too: they’ve put it on at 10pm on a Monday, not Saturday tea time – partly to add to the sense of fractured reality, partly because they know it’s far too subversive and dangerous to be on when children or the elderly might be watching, and partly to take over in that very slot Black Mirror vacates this week. The cunning, cunning bastards…
