A 2000 year-old artifact transported Yi Xiao Chuan and Gao Yao from the year 2010 to the Qin dynasty. They traveled the ancient kingdom trying to find their way back to the modern day, or at least die trying. Back in 2010, their family, Yi Da Chuan and Gao Lan, were piecing together clues from ancient artifacts that could help bring them back while avoiding attacks from mysterious masked men.

ok, i really wanna say only good stuff about this but im still mad about how it ended.

the good stuff:

amazing production set - you can tell that they spend money for this drama. from the location to costumes and extras. i love the palace that they used in this drama, its the biggest one ive seen so far in all the period drama that ive seen. also it impressed me read more how many horses they used during those war scenes. they also used a lot of location here, mostly outdoor. im not sure if they have a very big studio in china or this places actually exist in there.

acting is great - the cast itself is proof that you can expect something from this.

story is not perfect but still entertaining. its meant to be taken lightly. Hu Ge's did a great job in displaying the character development in his role. He started as this happy go lucky guy then turned into badass kung fu master general. Chang Shih also did great being the main villain. at some point i was empathizing with him but as he becomes more evil all i wish is for him to die in the drama haha. Bai Michelle's character is the least i like. she did nothing here but cry. and she only brings trouble and suffering to HuGe's character lol.

since there's fantasy tag here, expect some CGI, but dont expect hollywood quality CGI. last episode were entirely shot in chroma/green screen lol and its bad very very bad. bad cgi puts me off from getting the right emotion for that scene.

there were lot of plot holes here but i won't mention it since it might spoil some parts of the drama. what i can tell is the last episode ruined everything for me. i enjoyed all of 50 episodes except for that one last episodes where it made me regret and made feel i was cheated and robbed of my precious 50 hours. 50 effin hours that i wont be able to get back.

    "Scarlet Heart" ("Bu Bu Jing Xin) was one of the best Chinese dramas I have ever seen. It is on my favorites list!

    For one of the best Chinese or any movie I have ever seen (seriously!) watch "Red Cliff" --Absolutely intriguing!!

    ok, i really wanna say only good stuff about this but im still mad about how it ended. started really really good - awesome production set, passable cgi, great acting, good pacing, interesting storyline. But as it near the end, started to go downhill. specially the last 2 episodes. the worst is the last episode - horrible cgi and stupid ending. This is effin 50 episodes and it got ruined by that single episode SMH. its not a good idea to write reviews seconds after watching this since my emotion is still in its peak lol. im really really mad right now lol. give me back my effin 50 hours! (or less since its 45mins/ep)
    i will rate this 8/10 from episode 1-49 and1/10 episode 50

    I just now realized that the brothers are named Da Chuan ("Big" Chuan) and Xiao Chuan ("Little" Chuan). Those parents really were not very creative with their names.^^

    Does anyone have any good recommendations aside from the ones already listed, I'm looking for historical romance chinese drama without Wuxia. thanks

      I have only watched one and a half Chinese dramas so far but one is a wonderful historical romance without wuxia. (Well, it has some but very little, it's just that the main character jumps over rooftops occasionally.) Sound of the desert, give it a try!

      Thanks for the recommendation, I will check out, meanwhile I got into these drama: Nirvana in Fire - really hyped in China, meets the criteria but maybe lacks romance, more intense/suspenseful than this one. Chinese paladin - really similar to this one except there may be a bit of magic. Surprise they both have Hu Ge!

      NiF is amazing, I don't care if it lacks romance. I really like Hu Ge :) he's so great in both NiF and SotD.

      Hmm Scarlet Heart, Gong, Legend of Fragrance, Perfect Couple, but they're not really 'historical' though, more like romance drama comedy set in ancient setting (except for Scarlet Heart). Also Qing Shi Huang Fei, Scheme of a Beauty

    This series was finally fully subtitled, thank you to all the people who subtitle in the world! I was finally able to finish this series!! I gotta say, I loved all 49 episodes! Each one got me twisting and turning in my seat, waiting to find out what was gonna happen next. I don't really like episode 50, but I get it. It took me awhile, but I finally understood the producer's decision about the ending. I would for sure, watch it again, but just skip the ending and stick to my own made-up ending for it. :)

      I disagree with you. First off, not all Chinese dramas end that way. Just because one did, it doesn't mean they all will. Secondly, you can't really compare this to Startling Steps or Holy Pearl because they are just completely different story lines, trust me, I've seen those as well. The way this series ended, if you want to compare it to anything, you should compare it to the original "The Myth" movie made in 2005 with Jackie Chan as Meng Yi. THAT is the sole reason the ending is this way. Lastly, he wasn't just standing there and "doing nothing", he fought back, quite a lot, if you were paying attention, no offense. Even at the ending scenes, he was still fighting to protect his loved ones. And, he's chosen the no revenge route, because the only thing that would result from it would be a cycle of revenge and hatred.

    I'm in a huge drama slump and don't know what to watch, but I do know that it has to be chinese. This one looks really good and I love Hu Ge, but I don't know if it's worth watching?

    Found indeed English subs on the link Dantat gave us. However, they stop at episode 39/50. They are not great (sometimes out of sink and missing little parts) but at least you can understand the series. I've read that some people are thinking/trying to make English subs for this series, so hopefully the later episodes will be available with subs too. Would be nice, because I can't find any recaps either :D.
