Can a romance bloom between the bright and cheerful Chen You You and the unpredictable Lord Qian Sui, Bai Li, whom she had to marry? Bai Li is the great eunuch who is highly relied upon by the city lord. Lord Qian has a cold personality and became the first 'handsome man' in Fuxian City.

Where to Watch Oh My Lord
Cast & Credits
Fake marriage turned out to be fluffy & cute romance with cliffhanger ending.This is a very typical cdrama which involved in fake marriage turned to real romance with 3rd party wheel involvement.
Since this cdrama has a total of 15 episodes with 30 mins / per episode hence I will not reveal any spoiler over here but to comment on the story, casting & OST.
Story - If you like romcom then this cdrama suits your taste as you may find quite a number of skinship of the main couple over here. Another thing was there is no side couple which we can't make any comparison to the main couple but solely on the main couple that is the ML - Bai Li / Lord Qian Sui acted by Luo Zheng & the FL - Chen You You acted by Ji Mei Han. Luckily both of them managed to create the on screen chemistry considering both are quite young & amateur's actor & actress. Nothing much I can comment on this story & plot as I feel there will be another session of continuation as this story ended with a cliffhanger.
Acting - On the ML by Luo Zheng as Bai Li / Lord Qian Sui, I feel he has improved in his acting skill compared to his earlier cdrama "Cry Me a River of Stars" only thing is his face, personally I feel like he has undergone plastic surgery which in this drama labelled him as the most handsome or good looking person. For me, I feel his look is more suitable to be a model than an actor as for the FL by Ji Mei Han who played the role of Chen You You, certain angle she looks similar as Zhao Lu Si. Even the way she acted & talked in this drama is quite alike Zhao Lu Si too. Another role that I quite enjoyed watch is Bai Li right hand man - Gu Tian He acted by Hu Wei as he has acted in quite a number of cdramas as supporting roles but over here his role was really humorous & funny ones. The rest of the supporting roles too did a great job in portraying their role such as Chen Ming Hao who played the Royal Highness roles who loves to bake biscuits or delicacies.
The OST - I like the opening OST songs it seems nice & pleasant to listen even the ending OST too was good.
Since this is a low budget cdrama so I don't expect it to be very good but overall it was above average to me except the cliffhanger ending. So if you're considering whether to watch it or not then you need to be prepared for the ending or else everything seems to be fine (for me!).
All Chinese Romcom Clichés in a Single PackageThis drama is a few hours of story stretched into fifteen episodes that end on a cliffhanger. Its characters are okay and could be interesting, but there's no story at all. Things just happen one after another in an orderly fashion.
Characters: The two main leads are the highlight of the show. They have good chemistry and seem to be having fun with the terrible script that’s been given to them. Lord Qian Sui is an outwardly cold man with a heart of gold, while Chen Youyou is a quite silly, but energetic and quick-witted street girl. This leads to a generic, but cute romance in a very unrealistic ancient China setting. The supporting characters don’t get much screen time, and while they’re not bad, there are no stand outs, either. They’re all pretty much one note.
Comedy: Lord Qian Sui is a fake eunuch, who doesn’t want to be found out, while Chen Youyou is a girl, who marries him and is ordered to learn everything about him. Him trying to hide and her trying to catch him unawares is where most of the comedy comes from. It’s quite ridiculous and involves the two characters falling on top of each other more than once, but it’s all harmless fun and will delight anyone who’s a fan of Chinese absurd romance comedy style. However, the drama takes a hard left halfway through and starts using second-hand embarrassment and extremely awkward situations as comedy. It doesn’t really work and is almost unbearable to watch from time to time.
Story: It’s quite amazing how the scriptwriter of Oh My Lord! managed to run out of material within five or so episodes. The premise of the story is ridiculous, but it works fine enough at the start if one knows what they’re getting into (an absurd yet hilarious romcom), but it doesn’t last long. The story begins to meander before even reaching the halfway point, and it doesn’t get better. It gets worse, instead. A lot worse. The last couple episodes are one cliché followed by another without any break until someone who’s seen at least a few Chinese romcoms could say the characters’ lines for them. It’s a total snooze fest.
Overall, I enjoyed the start of the drama, but finished it only for the characters to see their happy ever after (which I didn't get because it was a cliffhanger ending that promises a second season). I would not recommend this unless someone wants to waste some time with a light-hearted, mindless comedy that lives and then dies on clichés that have been done to death in many much better dramas.
