She is someone who would rather endure difficult times alone for the sake of others. Su Moer meets Dorgon at a horse competition and they form a tight bond. One day, her world is turned upside down when an army invades their territory. Sumoer loses her parents and her homeland. To receive the protection of the Great Jin, the Khorchin Mongols arrange a marriage alliance between Princess Bumubuqin and Huang Taiji. Sumoer is also sent to Jin as a handmaiden of the princess where she crosses paths with Dorgon again and realizes that he is a man of high power.

The Beauty of Mongolia

I've watched this series raw, couldn't find any subs, but I hope someone will meet the challenge. The Legend of Jasmine is worth it, a luxurious production with beautiful costumes, faces and places.

Summary
A historical drama set in the beautiful surroundings of Mongolia at the early years of the Qing Dynasty, how good is that! The story begins with an energetic Mongol girl, Su Moer, who disguises as her brother to compete in a horse riding contest. Of course she wins, and her fierce competitor, Dorgon, is soon smitten with her.
One day an army invades her country, her parents got killed and she’s sent together with the Mongol princess to the Great Jin to receive his protection.
There, Su Moer and Dorgon meet again. It appears he’s a man of consequence in his homeland. Is there a possibility to stay together or was their romance doomed from the beginning?

The Good
This series is partly set in Mongolia and that is a big pro for me. The wide grasslands, round tents, costumes, are simply beautiful. The soundtrack fits the story, and the cast did a good job as well.

The Bad
It pains me to admit this, but I wasn't a fan of the actress who played the heroine. I got distracted by the plastic surgery on her face to a point I could no longer relate to her character. I felt myself looking at a modern day diva in historical clothing. Such a pity.
A lot worse is the fact that there are no subs, and probably there never will be. The CN authorities declared a new quota on drama in March 2019, yearly 60% contemporary vs. 40% historical/fantasy. Some historical titles are put on a list to disappear right after broadcasting, and to be wiped off online. The Legend of Jasmine is on that list.

Verdict
My advice is to watch this series a.s.a.p. if you're a sucker for historical drama and romance. If you wait too long, there's a change it might be too late.

The main characters looks do not look good!!!
I hate the dumb selfless act. I mean....come on! It’s irritating to watch! You can be selfless but still have to be able to stand up for yourself. Don’t be a freaking door mat!

I joe know how the story ends, but so far it is a tough watch!

It give me headache hahaha

Do all the chicks in this series have major plastic surgeries? That ALL look like they have thousands on procedures done!!!!

The main guy look so ugly with the hair style!!! Does he really have some sort of bow tie on his hair?! I o ow it the style then but I just CAN nOT stand to look at him. I have watched series in that time frame where they have the same hair style but other guys look a bit better than this guy.

Sorry I have to drop this. It SuCKS
