    I LOVE LOVE LOVE This Drama...I don't know who any of these actors are but this drama seriously made me fall in love w/them especially Prince Lan Ling. They're all great actors!! Not a dull moment watching this. I literally cried throughout the whole drama. Love their sense of humors..We need more drama like this!!! I will definitely keep on watching Feng Shaofeng movies and some of the other actors from now on.. :D I didn't like the ending but I'm glad the writer finished the drama that way because it's more realistic to me. A MUST WATCH!!!

    I just positively had to write a review on this drama. Had to.
    If you're thinking of watching this drama but being put off by the 46 episodes, as I initially was, I have to say- don't worry! The episodes aren't as long as some, and you'll find yourself flying through them.
    With those 46 episodes in mind, I guess it's obvious to say that a lot happens in this drama. The story is a classic one of fighting the good fight for the good of the people, with a thrilling and beautiful romance (and love triangle!) to spice it up. I almost want to say that the romance is a bit too much, considering it feels like the center of our love triangle becomes a

  • Both dramas deal with love triangles and with the desire of gaining the power but at the same time both have an original story and a great OST.

  • Both shows are about a legendary historical figure fighting for the good of the people against corrupt officials. Along the way, both of them fall for spirited, inspiring young women. Both include heaps of romance, action, tragedy, and beauty. I would say both of them are just great storied in general.

    Is the ending sad? Like does one of the lover die? Cuz if one does, I don't wanna watch it. If one of the other main dies, I'm fine with it.

    And I'm done! Now that was a roller coaster of emotions. First 20 episodes were a breeze to watch but for me, I hated Zheng Er, Gao Wei & Zu Ting too much to really watch their scenes in the episodes after. However, with the exception of Zu Ting - who I still hate - I don't hate Zheng Er & Gao Wei quite as much by the time the drama ended. They're still horrid people but truly, as demented as they were, I think it was the circumstances they were in that shaped their character.
    My favourite character was definitely Yu Wen Yong. He's quite possibly my favourite character & second male lead of all the dramas I've watched so far. He is the reason you should watch this drama. All the episodes that had him were my favourite, especially episodes 15 to 17.
    As for the ending, I didn't find it as sad as some seem to have. I thought it was a fitting end for a great drama.
    Definitely recommend it!

    Up to episode 12 and loving it! Prince An De makes me laugh so much. Such a ladies man, this guy. And Xiao Dong, so cute! And Yuwen Yung, the seemingly bad one you love anyway (so far at least)! And of course, Fourth Prince :3
    I'm addicted.

    Happy ending or not? I don't wanna watch 46 chapters to get depressed... lol
    • steph_ravita 28 days ago
      I'm up to episode 12 and so far, it's been really good! Everything I like - romance, drama, fun, action - it's all there for me!
      Of course, I haven't reached the end yet so I'm probably not the best judge.

      Oh no! D:
      I heard that and at first I wasn't going to watch it but I got sucked in.
      I'm up to episode 20 and while I want to smack Zheng Er, it's just so good D:
    • starry 27 days ago
      haha zheng err uggh i wanted to personally assassinate her myself OTL

      but you should keep on watching! i really enjoyed the drama minus the zheng er angst towards the end haha XD
    • steph_ravita 27 days ago
      Zheng Er angst towards the end?! I'm now watching episode 21 and there's so much Zheng Er angst that I want to skim D:
      I'm missing Yuwen Yung and Zhen Er too. As cute as Fourth Prince and Xue Wu are together, I'm kind of hoping Xue Wu ends up back in Zhou again. Episodes 15 to 17 were my favourites so far.

    It’s so exciting, I thought that it was about magic [the heaven maiden thingy], but no it was all logical and scientific, we see the lead girl grows which is so cool.

    I like the 2nd lead guy *wide smile*, maybe because he seems very lonely, but act not, Zheng Er is by far the most hateful second lead girl character D:

    Xiao Dong is a very brave awesome character.

    Actually this show becomes really entertaining in later episodes it's so much fun, even the lead dude I started to like him, when I didn't care for him at the start!! :D so worth watching [and here I was thinking of dropping it] XD

    The emperor [Gao Wei] is a really pitiful character.he has no one besides him to trust.

    This is so worth watching was so warm, I feel like crying, it's so moving.

    Is it OK to fall in love with a characters hair? His hair along with his face are killin' me. Soooo HOT! I know it is probably fake but *sigh* it makes him really good looking.

    As I'm reading stuff online about this drama, I notice a lot of people dislike the hairstyles... something I can barely understand! I mean, besides one episode where it looked like Yu Wen Dong was having a serious allergic reaction to his wig, and every time I can see Fifth prince's god-awful curls, I love the hair! Fourth prince's ponytail is one of the things that keeps me going day to day, it's so perfect.
    Anyway, this drama is becoming more and more of a drama that I'm definitely going to have to write a review for. I have so much to say.

    My first Chinese drama. The Chinese do well with sets and costumes. Hair and makeup, not so much.

    I like it so far. I like the most scenes with Yang Xue Wu togethor with Yu Wen Yong. I dunno why, but I always fall for the "enemy romance" ^^ :)
