Pride and Prejudice in Republican China

“I could easily forgive his pride, if he had not mortified mine.” – Pan Zhilin stars as Elizabeth Bennet opposite Xu Zhengxi’s Mr.Darcy.

After Wuthering Heights, another classic of English literature has been adapted into the Republican era. Starring Pan Zhilin as Elizabeth Bennet, Xu Zhengxi as Mr.Darcy, Li Xian as Charles Bingley, and Zhu Zixiao as George Wickham, Mr.Pride and Ms.Prejudice 翩翩冷少俏佳人 follows the book pretty closely but adds a lot of scenes.

Most plot points in the book are covered in the series, but there’s an added business line for several leads to stretch it into a 30-episode drama.  The only major change is that George Wickham’s true love is Elizabeth Bennet, although he still keeps romantic plots with both Lydia and Georgina.

I haven’t found a good YouTube version so your best bet is watching it here on iQiyi since it’s not area-blocked.
