Set in the Ming Dynasty under the rule of Emperor Zhu Qi Zhen, Tan Yun Xian comes from a long line of medicine practitioners, her family having served as court physicians for several generations. However, the practice for female physicians came to a halt when many were framed for abusing the form. Yet, Yun Xian is determined to learn medicine and so she does in secrecy, except things become difficult when herpaths cross with the Emperor himself.

- For the first half of the drama, the balance between romance and medical was really good. However towards the end, the romance got really complicated (rather than love triangle.. it became a square?) and confusing. The medical part of it pretty much got lost after episode 30.
- I enjoyed the medical parts of the drama more since the context of the drama was about how Yu Xian was the first imperial doctress and attempt to rid of the negative connotations for female doctors.
- It felt like the drama lost its point and was trying hard to push the romance.
- The ending happened very quickly and weirdly...

- I felt the actors was well chosen
- There was chemistry between all 3 main characters but Yu Xian's personality was predictable - like the typical 'innocent and pure' character.

- i didnt pay much attention towards the music of the drama, but the song that was used during the romantic scenes was really nice

- Overall its a nice drama to watch, at least first half. Its pretty long - 50 episodes, I recommend watching it when you have loads of free time. Since first half the drama got me waiting for the next since I was following it as it aired (2 episodes everyday), so you might get hooked initially. But around episode 30 - you probably will slow down.
- Its a Chinese soap opera - so if chinese isn't you first language you won't be able to enjoy what they say as much since they speak in the 'ancient' way. Even as a chinese speaker, some parts are hard to understand.

No matter how much I love to watch Asian drama I never wrote a single review on any of them but I have to make an exception for this one. The writer, directors, and specially the main casts surely managed to put on a good show. I freakin almost lost my cool. Felt all kinds of emotion towards the characters. I almost flew to China just to tell Mei Lin to go to hell! Urghhhhh!!! Such a b****! Qi Yu is just ughhhhh!!!!! So much for the ending thou!!! Seriously writer and director? You could've added some more to it!! Hug or something!! It seems like everybody like Essen's character and that includes myself. Him and Yun Xian had a bit of chemistry going on! Essen's character was more passionate and we love it! Like seriously, I got mad at the end of the drama..I wish there was more to it!
