This was an epic drama, in storyline and length. All the actors gave memorable acting performances. The costume designs were beautiful.
Poor Wei Young was targeted by every villain, who underestimated her survival skills. The Touba Jun/Wei Young romance was charming, until Tuoba Jun married Wei Young's arch-enemy #1, Changle. Arch-enemy #2, Changru, was even more dangerous and mad. Midway, the plot slowed down, and it was a great effort to keep read more watching Wei Young constantly being ridiculed, harrassed or tortured. My primary motivation was to see the end of the drama.
What made this epic drama effective, was the fact that 54 episodes were broadcast over a span of four weeks.
