Legend of the Purple Hairpin takes place in the Tang dynasty, a time when Chinese art, fashion, music, dance, and novel inventions were at their highest peak.

Raymond Lam portrays the heroic Nalan Dong, known as the “Yellow-Clothed One”, who falls in love with beautiful dancer Huo Xiaoyu, played by Michelle Ye. However, Dong’s best friend Li Yi, played by Cheng Cheng (程诚), is also deeply in love with Xiaoyu. Choosing brotherhood over love, Dong decides to step down in his pursuit of love.

The drama is a loose adaptation of the classic Ming dynasty opera.

First off, I would just like to say, DO NOT WATCH unless you're very bored. I actually had high hopes for this drama when I first started as I loved the couple when they were in Eternal Happiness together but it was ok... Then again, if you are familiar with TVB endings then this one isn't so bad.

The acting was not superb as there were a lot of stone face, and Michelle's crying seemed very fake to me. I did not feel any love chemistry between the main love triangle.The story is very long and draggy but it is because there are several subplots and politics. I feel like the whole political idea in the story was very fake because there were so many officials who were able to oppress the royal family and there was no regard for any of them which I felt was not convincing.

I felt like the plot could have been more solid because it was very confusing throughout the story. I thought I would like this, but I couldn't this time. Good luck future viewers...
