Jessica and Michelle, who played Wu Ting Fong and Princess Chiu Sin in the original, were more than happy to reunite with each other after so long.
"I keep reminiscing about the time we were filming the series, how I would take Michelle home every single day because she didn't live in Hong Kong at the time. I couldn't help but smile when I see everybody," she said.
"It's a rare opportunity to meet up and catch up with everyone," Michelle added.
On the other hand, when asked why he decided to cast the original players, Louis said that he didn't plan it that way initially, but that he felt it could be a better show with everyone coming back together.
