I didn't expect anything from this drama while I started to watch it. But this drama really surprised me.
The drama contains 18 episodes, 9 minutes each. So if everything is summed up it makes 3 whole episodes.
Most of the short Chinese historical dramas doesn't have a solid political background and plot twists. It mostly centers around the chemistry of the main leads. So like any other short drama I also didn't expect much. But surprisingly this 3 episode drama covered both political solid story as well as showed chemistry between the main leads which I hardly found in any 24 or 36 episode dramas.

Short dramas generally doesn't have that much eye-catching costumes. This drama also didn't have varity in costume but the designs of the few costumes that were seen were very good especially of the Emperor and the empress's.

Of course, due to the short period of time the story was not executed perfectly. Since the time was numbered the story had to go fast and it didn't get enough time to develop the characters. But if it was given a few more episodes to execute properly I am sure it would have make a wonderful story and may have become one of my favorite historical drama.

By the way, this drama is available in YouTube.

The chemistry of the main leads couldn't save the stupid writing

The drama at first was really great to watch. Especially the bickering of Liang Yi and Qiu Yan. Actually their chemistry is the main attraction of the drama followed by the deep voice is Jeremy. (Oh! I love this guy's voice) I am glad that they didn't dub his voice.

The drama mainly focuses on how one can outsmart the other by wit. There isn't much of stunned work like flying in the sky type fight scenes. I am glad that they made the fight scenes quite realistic. Even when the ML gets hurt he actually takes some time to recuperate. Not like the typical unrealistic ML who becomes fine the next second after getting stabbed. For this I give one point to the drama.

But still....

This drama couldn't get satisfactory score from me.

I really loved the character of Noble consort and Liang Yi's mother. They were fun to watch. Not like typical mother-in-law or queen characters. But in the end they had to spoil these two characters. They spoiled it in such a way that you can't even hate them nor love them. There will be just one question! Why? Why writer why? Why do you have to make them like this?

There are also some illogical things that just can't get away.
For example the actors they choose for the 6year younger version of Liang Yi and Qiu Yan was really young. Maybe they did that so that they won't recognize each other after 6years but still they could have shown that they met after 8 or 10 years, then the actors age could be believable.
Besides that, the culprit of the money counterfeit incident hold grudges against Liang Yi because he killed the culprit's father who was corrupted. This incident happened 3/4 years(I don't remember the year) before the money counterfeit incident. That time the culprit was a child. How come the culprit become an adult in just a few years?

Not to mention the unnecessary dragging!

The story of Qiu Yan's mother was not needed at all.
And the ending!!!
I mean why? Why did the writer had to add that unnecessary headache in the end?

The story went really well during the last few episodes. The political part was okay.
But still I hoped to see some fluffy romantic scene of Liang Yi and Qiu Yan.

At least their marriage! 😭

But the writer had to add needless headache in the end just so they can drag the drama to 34 episodes.
If that was really necessary then you should have added their marriage scene, their sweet romance. I am sure no body would mind that. In fact I would love be to see that more.

If the story of both the MLs mothers could be erased then, at least 2 episodes could be easily minimized. And we viewers would have less headache.

In the end, I am not saying it's a bad drama. I definitely enjoyed watching it. It's just that it's not one of the best drama I have watched. If you are not a nitpicker about drama then you will love it too. Liang Yi and Qiu Yan are like a treat to watch together. But you can skip the last episode. Then everything will be fine.

First of all, this lakorn doesn't make any sense to me.

I started this drama only because of Mik and continued also because of him. But he really made me disappointed. Even his acting was not good. I didn't like his character as well.

The story of the mafia part was quite decent. But if I have talk about the story of the main leads, then I would say it doesn't make any sense.

About the chemistry between the main leads, I am sorry to say but I didn't see any chemistry between them. Every time I would watch them together I would think the Daniel is taking her as a replacement of his ex, because come on... if Fahsai didn't look like of his ex he wouldn't have bothered to look at her. And as for Fahsai..... I don't know... may be she just fell for his handsome face.

Second lead syndrome is a thing in dramas. But in this drama I actually felt chemistry between Fahsai and Chen min. Even their story made sense to me, not like Daniel and Fahsai. To me the story of Daniel and Fahsai seemed forced as if just because they are the main lead they have to fall in love with each other.

The FL is one of the most pathetic FL characters I have seen so far.

The parents of the Fahsai.. Oh boy... They are the most hypocrite parents of all time. The whole drama they disapproved their daughters relationship with ML.. but at the end of the lakorn... BAM! They just immediately agreed to their marriage, not to mention when their daughter was lying in the hospital because she got shot because of Daniel.

The only thing I liked in this lakorn is the second lead couple and the underlings of Daniel. Only the part of them made me smile.

I have watched a lot of dramas but this is the only drama which I fast forwarded every episode.

In the end, whenever I thought to myself that why is this happening in this lakorn, the only answer I get was 'The director wanted it to happen.'

A must watch romcom

If you want to watch a historical Chinese drama with light politics and full of comedy, then you have come to the right place. This drama is full of comedy. The moment you will think things are getting serious, it will hit you with a huge laugh.

The drama is about Xiaoqian who dreams into her own drama as a minor character. I love this kind of stories. So the moment I read the synopsis, I jumped into the drama.

Zhao Lusi, as usual did a great job with her character. She is so cute and boubly. She pulled her character very well and will make you fall in love with her.

Ryan Ding also did a great job. His character Han shou is the cutest husband one will ever get. Initially he came for his own interest. But the moment he fall in love with Chen qianqian, he will not let her go. He is scheming, cold and ruthless but the moment he sees Chen qianqian, his heart melts. Such a caring and cute husband.

Not only the main leads but other characters will entertain you as well. Especially the servants of the main leads. They are hilarious and adorable.

As a whole, this drama is a must watch if you are having a hard time cause this drama will surely make you laugh.

A must watch drama who likes romcom as well as others.

Somewhat disappointed

To be honest I didn't even know about this show until I saw the edits on Han Junkyung's character. And after watching the show Kang minhyuk was the only person that I liked. Let's hear my thoughts in details...

Acting...
All the actors did their best to portray their characters and they succeeded. It's not like some jaw dropping acting but yeah they weren't bad. They were decent, like how they are supposed to be.


Character....
In terms of character design... what can I say... nothing fresh, nothing new... Infact the two main characters seemed like those old school drama main leads.
The character Han Junkyung, his attitude towards other people seemed really impressive but when he is with Seo ari, he becomes like those typical old school drama chaebol ML who, the moment he gets his eye on a poor but charming (in his eyes) FL, he is gonna be stand by 24/7 to help her and be her knight in shining armour. (Yeah... So creative 😒)

The character of Seo ari didn't impress my either. Her character is like those typical FL as well, who for no reason has to raise her voice and fight for justice. I mean seriously... This troup is way too old that it has become boring now. In my opinion, she just seemed to love trampling on rich people with her words. The only think positive about her is that she is not pitiful doormat type.

Yoon Siyeon... For her character, the writer could do so many things... Until the last ep I thought there has to be some dark side of her... But the writer just left her the way she was. She seemed so bland and depressed... (I know her circumstances may be the reason for that depression.. but still it was bland) It seemed like her only purpose in this drama was to help the FL who she just met recently.

The other characters were not so special, typical villains who tried to harm the main leads, that's it. One thing I wonder, why do the have make the addicts go full platinum blonde in the finale?(like Lee Sara in glory)

bbbfamous... Whoa! That's the character that I am the most disappointed with. The whole series there was a tension about who this character is... But what did we get? Some random character who just dropped before the finale? That's just lazy writing... Not a plot twist at all. Me as a viewer didn't connect with her at all. She just seemed like an unknown random psychopath. If the writer wanted us to be surprised then you have to give that character proper screen time, so that we viewers will think that 'Yeah! There's that girl too. I didn't even realise that.' But what did we get! Before this revelation, I thought Siyeon was bbb... (That would be quite surprising plot twist, in my opinion. She had some grudge against Seo ari because of her entanglement with Junkyung and also the power to know the secrets of other influencers. That would make so much sense)

BGM...
Background music was okay.

Rewatch value...
I would rather watch other dramas on my list.

Overall, it's not a bad kdrama... There is enough drama to keep you want to watch this drama. But the ending just didn't meet my expectations.

Remove the alien plot and it's a typical rich guy poor girl story

Yes! The headline says it all. After watching so many supernatural character drama and the drama itself being very hyped, I had so much expectations from it. But... Sadly it didn't reach my hopes.

After watching first romance and crush I became a fan of Wan peng. This actress can really make such a great chemistry with her co-stars. And she didn't disappoint me in this drama too. I could feel their chemistry and become lost in their scenes.
But that is the only thing that helped me get through the drama.

One thing that I want to say is, Wan peng is a good actress and she creates really great environment around her co-stars but she really needs to work on her kissing scenes. In every drama even though she looks great with the ML but during kissing scenes, she does not cooperate at all. Same thing happened in this drama as well. Thassapak Hsu really tried his best but because of her not cooperating, those scenes didn't come out as good as their chemistry. If she tried just a little then I am sure they would have made fireworks in my heart.
So sad, it didn't happen.

Now back to the drama,
The drama was very promising at the beginning and I really enjoyed the first 9/10 episodes. And then it began it's journey to the waste.

If the scenes of Xiao Qi using her powers which covers very very very few scenes is removed, the drama becomes a typical rich guy poor girl concept drama, where the girl is thrown away millions of times but she just doesn't have any dignity and has to shamelessly cling onto the ML. I was hoping the plot would develop later using the fact that she is an alien. But No! When she is required to use her powers she just can't use that! Then what's the point of making her an alien!

I will say that again that, Thassapak Hsu and Wan Peng had great chemistry. But when it comes to the story between Fangleng and Xiaoqi, it was actually a headache. I literally lost count how many times they were together and how many times they left each other. At one point their relationship looked like a toxic relationship to me.

Acting wise, every actors did good job with their acting including the side characters. I have to point out the acting skills of Thassapak Hsu. He is such a great actor. He really can make one immerse into the scene. When I saw him crying, damn I cried with him as well.

It's just my opinion, the writer didn't write the story in clear mind. With the aimless back and forth of the main leads, I started to lose interest in the drama.

I would have rated the drama more less, but since I love both the main leads and their acting, so I had be a little bit biased.

There are talks about a second season of this drama. Honestly I am really excited to hear the news and would love to see them together again. I just hope that the makers will make a decent story this time and will not disappoint me.

I am not really into medical dramas. I have tried a few before but couldn't finish them. I happened to watch the first episode out of boredome. But in the very first episode a lot of things happened and it made me hooked up with the drama.

I loved the way every episode name is also described through sketch. It was unique.

Every character in this drama is special. Specially Kim sabu. He is the coolest person in this drama. The way he handles every situation is really amazing.

The main leads are so cute. Loved their interactions. Yoo Yeon Seok, oh my my... He just took my heart. That's all I can say.

The way they treat the patient is really exciting. I am not from medical sector. But each the medical cases they handle make me interested in them.

This was the first medical drama that I finished and has become one of my favorite drama.

I watched this drama recently and fell in love to the extend that I immediately started the second season right after I finished the first one.

I came to watch the drama because I didn't have anything else to watch. At the beginning i was interested in the plot since it contained revenge and cross dressing.

But as the drama continued I was disappointed.

The FL crossdressed and came to the general's mansion to know about the secrets of the death of her parents and avenge them.

But in the end she didn't do anything!!!
Her culprits were punished by the general for his own interest. And soon she even gave up on her revenge.

The cross dressing thing was dragged for so long as well. I was dumbfounded to see that as soon as the general knew about her gender, they instantly started dating... He didn't even know her real name!

If you have nothing to do than you can watch it. It only helps to kill time, nothing else.....

If you want a drama where girls are always fighting with each and and pull each other's hair, then this is the drama you should be looking for.

Since drama contains betrayal of the main lead. I happened to watch the drama randomly but was addicted to it since I like this kind of plot.

The male lead triesto deceive the female lead and thus married her. But after he has fallen in love with her he becomes sincere to her.

I have watched a lot of drama where the ML is easily tricked and thus hates the FL. But this is the first drama I have watched where no matter how hard the vamps tried to separate them, they never succeeded. He would avoid everything and hold tight on to his wife even of she is found with another guy.

I found it very interesting that no matter what schemes the villains made, the ML will not believe them and go back to his wife.

A drama more heart wrenching than Scarlet heart ryo.

I watched this drama after my exams were over. And oh boy! I made a good decision.

It is such a heart wrenching drama that i wasn't able to move on for a long time. Not only that i wasn't able to watch other dramas for at least a 3 to 4 months.

It doesn't mean that this drama is bad. Actually the drama is great. A perfect drama to have tons of tears.

The story is about Li cheng yin who is the fifth prince of central plains. When he heard that the empress who he thought was his mother actually killed his own mother , he schemed a plan to be the crown prince of central plain and avenge his mother. To fulfil his plan he used the ninth princess of western liang in every possible way making her a life miserable.

Even though he loved her from the bottom of his heart, he failed to protect her in the dangerous eastern palace.

Both the actors did wonderful job in portraying their characters. I don't know if anybody else would be able to pull off the characters as much as they did.
I have become a fan of Oliver chen after I saw his acting. Li cheng yin is such a complex and skeptical character. and the actor portrayed it to the perfection. Peng Xiao ran did excellent job to display the innocent as well as mischievous Xiao feng who we all loved.

I am waiting for them to act together in other historical drama.

The ost are awesome. Its actually helped to intensify the emotions while watching the drama. Even when now I hear them, tears fall from my eyes as i remember the scenes.

Not for fluffy hearted person

This drama is such a unique piece on it's own. I came through this drama because of Bie. And oh boy! I didn't expect I would be watching this show

Before starting this drama I have already read some comments and reviews regarding the story. So I was already familiar with the mother-in-law, son-in-law adultery. May be that's why while watching them together I didn't feel raged. Instead, I was laughing, was it because I find it awkward? I don't know.

Regarding the adultery part I found many reviewers raging towards Orn, as in how can she do that with her son-in-law? But in this case, I have a different point of view. Instead of Orn, I am actually disgusted by the character, Ben.
Let me explain my analysis of the situation.

Instead of being angry of the character Orn, I find her more pitiful. It's not that I am siding with her. Of course, what she did was disgusting. But she didn't just started her relationship with Ben out of nowhere or planned beforehand. Thanks to the well arrangement of the series of events that led me figure out why she was doing her things like that. The main cause of all her doings goes back to her husband's cheating. Because of her husband cheating on her she lost trust in people and started to regard men as toys. The depression that she faced was so bad that it cracked her mind. She was so much engrossed with revenge that she didn't bother to hurt their daughter, Fah, who Tharn adores. She thought that by hurting Fah, she can actually hurt Tharn. Her adultery can be explained in some minor points, but hurting a child is bad, disgusting, there's no justification for this. And I hate her for this behavior.

Now back to the adultery part.
It was made clear that she still didn't forget her husband through her relationship with the driver. During their intimacy, she would actually fantasize her husband in the driver. (Sad!)
She was so sensitive towards lies and Fah that, if Fah is caught lying to her, she would assume Fah is cheating her and is being with her father making her crack her mind again, and again with the torture so that Fah will obey her.
When she learned about Fah still having contact with her brother (Aek), Orn thought of a plan to made Fah get married with someone so that Aek will be in pain since Orn knows what Aek thinks about Fah. When Ben came into the picture as a shameless Playboy in front of Orn, he bacame the perfect candidate for Fah. Because if Fah's life is destroyed because of this douchebag, it will make Tharn worry, not to mention it's a punishment for Fah for not obeying her as well. Orn becomes assured of her plan when Tharn actually comes to her and begs for Fah. Huh! This is what she wanted. Even during this time she didn't have any intention of becoming involved with Ben. She just wanted to use him for her revenge.

On the other hand, Ben was a piece of sh*t from the beginning. When someone tells you to wait, you will wait, right? But no! This guy has to wander around his fiance's house on his own not to mention it was his first time coming there. And when he saw his mother-in-law in a swimsuit what will you do? Of course, look away, right? But again no! His douchebag playboy soul was awakened and he didn't even regard the fact that the woman in front of him is his mother-in-law, and started to flirt with her. Like seriously dude! I wanted to smack his face so bad that time.

Even this time, Orn was just playing with Ben since his playboy attitude made her confirm that he is the right candidate for Fah. Even after the numerous tries of Ben being Ben, she didn't gave in.
Her mind went cracked and this time twisted when Fah lied to her to save Aek and seeing Ben helping Fah in this regard.
She thought, if Ben is already helping Fah before their marriage that she will not be able to use him in the future not to mention she has to punish Fah as well for lying. Thus she gave in to Ben's immoral attitude and got entangled in this twisted relationship then eventually started having feelings for her son-in-law. (Pathetic!)

This was my analysis of Orn's twisted mind.

And I highly find Ben more responsible for his fate. Orn didn't come to him at first. It was him constantly proposing her, his immoral thoughts from the beginning. That's why I hate Ben the most in this drama.

I wanted to beat the hell out of him when his mother scolded him that he should have told her that he wanted to marry the mother not the daughter and he replied that how can she say that, Orn is Fah's mother. Like seriously dude, then who was the one who dreamed that it was Orn he is getting married with not Fah. I can't explain how raged I was that time.

I don't wanna talk more about their story. I have already said a lot.

Now, let's talk about other characters. Beside the story of Orn, pp's story was well developed as well. I know she was really a pain in the ass at first but her character development was good. In case of Aek and the other girl story( I don't even remember her name), it was soo boring. I fastwarded the scenes of them.

What I was looking for was to see how Fah and Ben's relationship develop. But I was really disappointed. The other side characters got so many screen time that, Fah and Ben didn't have sufficient scenes at all, let alone build up a chemistry. Aek and his girl got so many unimportant scenes that I had the urge to cut their scenes and give it to Fah and Ben.
They have so less scenes together that I didn't believe a word when Fah and Ben says that they love each other. Dude! You have to spent time with each other to fall in love. All I saw was Ben adultering with Orn and Fah just being herself.

Beside Fah and Ben relationship, the story is good. I actually enjoyed Orn's story. In the end, when she was with Tharn and their two children, Fah and Aek, I don't know why I felt an undescribable emotion. I was actually crying and was thinking that this is what Orn was yearning for, a family.

The actors did good job with their acting. Bie is such a great actor. Even though I don't like the character Ben and I don't believe that he just started to have feelings for Fah after he got caught. But Bie's acting of Ben repenting was heart touching. If I didn't know the backstory of Ben I would actually buy that he likes Fah.

The drama is actually worth watching (not to the people who can't handle cheating concept). If the director gave enough scenes to develop Ben and Fah story, I would have definitely give it a 10/10.
