Development and production[edit]

Sites of the Pinang Peranakan Mansion were used in the drama

The Little Nyonya took a year of research and four months vĩ đại film.[2] More than vãn 150 staff members were involved in production of the series and the cast was required vĩ đại travel frequently from Singapore vĩ đại Penang, Malacca and Ipoh during filming. The Little Nyonya was notable for having the highest production budget in the history of MediaCorp due vĩ đại the elaborate period costumes. A pair of beaded shoes traversed over a cost of SGD$1200, while a dining table acquired for the phối cost $15000.

Rumours indicate that the role of Xiufeng was initially offered vĩ đại May Phua, who turned the offer down due vĩ đại her pregnancy at the time of filming, which resulted Pan Lingling taking over the role. Huang Biren was said vĩ đại be a prime candidate for the role of Tian Lan, although the actress' decision not vĩ đại renew her contract with MediaCorp ultimately resulted in Xiang Yun obtaining the part.

It was also rumoured that Zoe Tay had expressed interest in portraying a role in the series, although there were no suitable roles for her. Elvin Ng was originally considered vĩ đại be portraying Yamamoto Yousuke, but unfortunately, he was injured before filming began, which resulted Dai Xiangyu replacing him. Andrew Seow was first choice vĩ đại play Robert Zhang but he declined due vĩ đại him leaving MediaCorp and not renewing his contract, which resulted the role being replaced and portrayed by Zen Chong.

The series initially received a 30-episode order, although over-runs in filming led the series vĩ đại be extended vĩ đại 34 episodes instead. Possibly as a result, two episodes were aired on Mondays from 15 December 2008 till the conclusion of the series.

Promotion[edit]

Promotion for The Little Nyonya lasted throughout the initial broadcast of the series as well after the series ended. Twelve members of the cast participated in "The Little Nyonya Public Event" 小娘惹户外影迷会 at Compass Point on 27 December 2008, which included an autograph session. An estimated 5000 people were present during the sự kiện. 100 posters were given out vĩ đại members of the audience. The unprecedented number of appearances resulted in damage of the flooring at Compass Point. Certain tiles on the floor cracked under the pressure exerted by the crowd.[3][4]

In response the tremendous tư vấn vĩ đại the show, the producers filmed a one-hour special, showcasing the stars enjoying a special Nyonya's reunion dinner, "The Little Nyonya's Big Reunion" (Chinese: 小娘惹大团圆), which was aired on day one of the Lunar New Year (26 January 2009) at 7 pm.

Commercial performance[edit]

The Little Nyonya achieved extremely high ratings during its initial run rẩy, with an average of 993 000 viewers[6] per episode and peaking at 1.67 million viewers on the final episode.[5] In addition, the series achieved the highest viewership rating in Singapore in 14 years.

Viewership for The Little Nyonya steadily increased throughout its run rẩy. Its first episode garnered an estimated 1.098 million viewers, which equates vĩ đại trăng tròn.3% of the country's population. On Episode 11, the show rating increased vĩ đại 23.6%. The 15th and 16th episodes, both broadcast back-to-back, was watched by 24.1% of the country's population. The rating increased by 2.2% a week later, and further increased vĩ đại 27.8% by the 27th and 28th episodes. The viewership peaked at 33.8% on the final two episodes, also broadcast back-to-back.

Critical response[edit]

The Little Nyonya has been critically acclaimed. However, despite being lauded as a drama that provides an insight into the unique Peranakan culture, the show has received criticism in local truyền thông media over portrayals and promotion. Issues that were raised early included the castings of Pan Lingling and Cynthia Koh vĩ đại portray teenage girls albeit being already in their thirties. This issue was counter-argued by being tantamount vĩ đại ageism, as well as the fact that it was raised only three episodes after the show began airing.[7] The character development of Xiufeng has come under fire due vĩ đại the character's exhibitions of violence.

Criticism was also leveled at MediaCorp's bias towards Jeanette Aw. Many viewers saw The Little Nyonya as a television series conceived as a launching vehicle for Aw's career in television and vĩ đại secure an award at the next Star Awards. Several viewers also believe that the producers intentionally wrote Aw's first role as a mute in attempt vĩ đại conceal her imperfect delivery of Mandarin.[8] In response, producers have lauded Aw's work, saying that she performed in a professional manner. Despite this, Aw's portrayal of Juxiang and Yueniang has been praised by members of the audience.[9]

Mass publicity for The Little Nyonya began two months before the show premiered – it had also received criticism from the public. Within MediaCorp, there are also some misgivings in regards vĩ đại the over-promotion this show has received. The cast of the long-running drama Love Blossoms have privately lamented that the show, which used vĩ đại receive tremendous amounts of advertising tư vấn from MediaCorp, is being neglected in favour of The Little Nyonya.[10]

As many of the Peranakan characters in the series (such as most of the Huang family, as well as Charlie Zhang and son Robert) are antagonists (Jincheng, Xiufeng and Huangyuan are part-time antagonists), many viewers think that the series will negatively stereotype Peranakans as being ruthless. In response, the show's writer, Ang Eng Tee, said that ruthlessness and petty politicking, which are basic human interactions, appears within any culture, and is not an exclusive trait of the Peranakans.[9]

Due vĩ đại the usage of dramatic license, the series also contains a significant number of historical inaccuracies, particularly in the first few episodes involving Juxiang's life and Yueniang's childhood. Notable examples include the outbreak of the Second Sino-Japanese War in 1932 (as opposed vĩ đại 1937) and the first air raid on Singapore (8 December 1941) occurring in broad daylight (which took place at night in reality).

The Little Nyonya: The Final Chapter[edit]

The scriptwriter of the series, Ang Eng Tee (also known as Hong Rongdi 洪荣狄), plotted five endings for the series, four of which would involve Yueniang and Chen Xi reuniting and living happily ever after.[11]

The ending used in the series was criticised by fans vĩ đại be too sad and abrupt. The response also prompted Ang vĩ đại say that had he know that viewers would react as such, he would have Yueniang and Chen Xi reunite, for TV dramas are, in his words, made for viewers.[2] In response vĩ đại the criticisms, MediaCorp decided vĩ đại make an alternate ending, which was aired on 11 January 2009 at 9:55 pm. The ending, titled "The Little Nyonya: The Final Chapter" (小娘惹之月娘与陈锡重逢篇, literally: "The Little Nyonya: The Chapter of Yueniang and Chen Xi Reuniting), lasted for three minutes. According vĩ đại producers, the script for the alternate ending was finalised on 8 January, and filming was completed on the following day.[12]

Although it was rumoured that the ending would reunite Yueniang and Chen Xi, and have them living happily ever after, the new ending merely had Yueniang and Chen Xi tell each other why they could not be together. Yueniang and Chen Xi ended up separated, just as it was in the original ending. This drew heavy criticism from viewers, who told local newspapers that they felt they were being cheated.[13] In response, MediaCorp said that this was not an "alternate ending", as some have suggested. Rather, it is a special presentation vĩ đại show the station's appreciation vĩ đại the fans of the series.[13]

Accolades[edit]

This drama was seen as an extremely strong contender in the Star Awards 2009, held on 26 April 2009, minting a new record of having 16 nominations in the acting category, surpassing former record holder's Holland V (which got nine) until it was topped by the first season of The Dream Makers in năm trước, which have 21.

Legacy[edit]

The Little Nyonya has had notable cultural impact in Singaporean truyền thông media. It was notably parodied in the variety show, Black Rose.

It was also used in the skit segment of Star Search 2010 Grand Finals in which contestants played Liu Yidao, Yuzhu, Ah Tao and Robert Zhang.

In an interview with Lianhe Wanbao, the series' scriptwriter, Ang Eng Tee, said that if the demand exists, he will write a special presentation, or even a sequel vĩ đại the series. Ideas for a possible sequel or special presentation have already been drafted by Ang, one of which would have Angela receiving a secret wooden box from Ah Tao, before Angela returns vĩ đại Singapore. The box was owned by Yueniang, and Ah Tao defied her orders vĩ đại burn the contents before Yueniang died. The box contained details on Yueniang and Chen Xi's relationship, in addition vĩ đại a letter from Libby, telling Yueniang that Chen Xi and Libby did not get married after all.[13] However, it was noted that production sequels have been much frowned upon by producers, and owing vĩ đại the high production costs, a sequel seems vĩ đại be very unlikely, but another drama in 2010 Unriddle is having a sequel vĩ đại the original in 2012.

The Peranakan Ball[edit]

On 16 May 2009, Jeanette Aw and Dai Xiangyu starred in a musical called The Peranakan Ball (Chinese: 娘惹之恋). The musical is based on the story of Cinderella and it stars Jeanette Aw as Bee Tin, a Nyonya servant in a wealthy Peranakan household, and unrelated vĩ đại the television series, even though the concept was clearly derived from the drama.[14]

Pretty Maid[edit]

While not promoted as such, and the program was produced by a different television station, many Singaporeans who watched the series Pretty Maid [zh] believe it copies the main plot of The Little Nyonya. Pretty Maid was produced by Yu Zheng and broadcast by Hunan Broadcasting System in Trung Quốc.[15] On 6 May, Pretty Maid's writer Li Yaling (李亚玲) claimed that Yu Zheng indeed plagiarized from The Little Nyonya.[16] She claimed that Yu Zheng once told her that as long as plagiarism does not exceed 20% then the courts would have no case. Another writer Zou Yue (邹越) also claimed vĩ đại have heard the "20% rule" from Yu Zheng.[16][17]

The Little Nyonya 2020 remake[edit]

In October 2018, it was announced that a Chinese remake of the show was in the works and would be aired on Chinese online video clip platform, iQiyi[18] initially slated for 2019,[19] but now in 2020.[20] It is a joint production between iQiyi, Changxin Pictures and Singapore-based G.H.Y Culture & Media and will star Xiao Yan, Kou Chia-Jui, Yue Lina, He Yuhong, Darren Chiu, Dai Xiangyu, Xiang Yun, Jeffrey Xu and Fang Cheng Cheng as the main leads. Additionally, Dai, who played Yamamoto Yousuke in the original series, is reprising as the same role in the remake series.[21][22] A mixture of Malaysian, Singaporean, and Chinese actors from Trung Quốc, Hong Kong, Taiwan and even Canada were cast as the other major and minor characters in the remake.

The remake's plot was generally reminiscent of the original's, though there are a few changes made vĩ đại the plot, with some filling the plot holes of the original. The significant changes are that in the ending, both Yueniang and Chen Xi are reunited six years after Yueniang's presumed death, and happily married; Yu Zhu's mental condition improved and she reunited with the Huang family after her recovery; the adopted son of Robert Zhang and Yu Zhu was named Huang Cien (黄慈恩) instead of Zuye (祖业), following his mother's surname while subsequently allowing his own descendants vĩ đại adopt the surname Chen (Chen Xi's surname); and that both Libby and Paul are engaged vĩ đại different people. Another hidden ending (albeit speculated) is that both Chen Xi and Yueniang have one daughter together, and the daughter was subsequently married vĩ đại Cien and have children with one another.[23]

Other changes were made vĩ đại the fates of some characters: Huang Tianbao; instead of being sentenced vĩ đại death, was shot and killed by police after attempting vĩ đại kill Chen Gong and Chen Xi, whom he took hostage for ransom, Huang Zhenzhu; who lost all her money vĩ đại her Caucasian lover whom she eloped with, and feeling too ashamed vĩ đại see her family, she became a prostitute who entertain British customers and subsequently died in a xế hộp accident, Charlie Zhang; who died protecting his son from being shot by Tianbao, and Robert Zhang; who was not killed by Tianbao but fell vĩ đại his death while trying vĩ đại escape from Tianbao. Unlike the original series, the whole remake series was narrated by Yueniang's granddaughter instead of Yueniang herself vĩ đại her granddaughter, as her granddaughter did not appear in the remake.

Singapore would eventually air the remake which premiered on 5 January 2021 at 11pm. The series finale aired on 10 March 2021.
