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.
Cast & Credits
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 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.
