Actress Athena Chu, who starred as Zixia Fairy in the original film, has dug out her old costume for the reality show. The reappearance of Zixia Fairy has delighted viewers of the show.
It is not an exaggeration to say A Chinese Odyssey Part Two: Cinderella marked a milestone in Chinese movie history. It ranks second highest with a score of 9.1 among Chinese films on Douban Movie, the Chinese version of IMDb.
Some viewers say it is just a simple comedy, while others believe that behind the funny dialogues are a sense of sarcasm.
In the film, Zixia Fairy is a memorable role for many movie-goers thanks to her simple yet brave characteristics.
She is a woman who dares to love. She enjoys a pure soul and decides to find her true love through the belief: "The man who has the power to take the magical sword from her hand will be her Mr Right."
She is a woman who dares to hate. She firmly denies the passionate love pursuit of King Bull. She would rather die than bend over to a man she has no feelings for.
She is a seemingly silly woman. After finding out her Mr Right Monkey King cheated of her feelings, she stills helps him overcome many difficulties. She may have flaws, but she is the best example of a love believer and loyalist.
The issue of true love is seen throughout the film.
During the recent talent show, Athena Chu also expressed her thoughts on "true love".
"You should learn to love before offering your love to your loved ones," Chu said, "You should let it go when you find the wrong people because a better one is waiting for you."
As a matter of fact, the romantic love lines in the movie represent another highlight of the film and have been widely used in people's everyday life.
Now, why not take a look at some classic lines from the movie?
"I have had my best love before, but I didn't treasure her. When I lost her, I fell regretful. It is the most painful matter in this world. If the God can give me another chance, I will say three words to her - I love you. If you have to give a time limit to ensure this love, I hope it should be 10,000 years."
"When you discover that you've fallen in love with a man you hate, this affair is really hurting you."
"Love means pain. If I can't be with the one who I love, I won't be happy even if I were Heaven Emperor."
"You can just get my body instead of my spirit. Should I show you my heart?"
