Maybe he killed someobody close to her? Or wanted her to do something unforgivable? Or maybe he used her? I guess we'll never know until we watch all 90 episodes...so 3.75 days of t.v.....I checked...with a calculator o_O
If she cursed him by cutting her hair I bet he did something REALLY bad because that would have impacted not just her life but her burial (also a big deal) and how she is remembered. I bet he did something really bad...
Nothing is ever as simple as it seems, you can't fall out of favor that rapidly, there has to be events leading up to it for him to just cast her aside. When a woman cut her hair then, it was a sign of mourning for her husband or parents. So in doing that it was like she was cursing the Emperor and Empress Dowager to die, it was very taboo. But she was probably so done at that point, she had to know what she was doing. I LOVED Empresses in the Palace/The Legend of Zhen Huan, with all my heart, it is my favorite drama of all time. So I'm really excited about this. Especially the cast, the sets, props, everything looks fantastic. You guys wait and see, it'll be worth the 90-ep watch.
Lady Ulanara fell out of the Qianlong Emperor's favour in such an abrupt and rapid manner. According to pseudo-historical records of the time, Lady Ulanara lost favour with the emperor because she cut her hair . seriously
What's with these super long ass Chinese dramas recently -.-'' I already feel skeptical starting anything over 40 episodes, but 90 is just batshit insane and I thought I was mental for actually finishing Empress of China (the only other C-drama with 90 episodes but with enough lavish costumes/sets to keep things interesting)
