Not worth 30 episodes and Female Lead character was terrible! Awful screenwriting and directing

It was interesting at first to see the struggles of the Rui family kinda cinderalla -ish with multiple wives and sisters and a pathetic father. And interesting to watch the General's reaction to his new wife.

But kept thinking the FL character of Jin'er would get better but it was awful. She didn't grow or mature. It was a constant misunderstanding, scheming, whining, irritating stupidity that continued to make the General have to apologize and show his love to a ridiculously immature and annoyingly bratty girl that never evolved into a woman. She wouldn't see the big picture.

Stuck with it just to see who was the ultimate person behind all the killings, fire, etc. And the humor at the end was good and the idea that they meet in modern times was pretty interesting.

The ML was good looking and did a great job. Really liked Rou Rou's character and actress.

But overall it was a waste of time and not all that great when you're screaming at the screen "She is so stupid!"

Music: Memorable but nothing major
Scenery: Not bad
Costuming: Lots of beautiful period costumes
Fighting scenes: Well done and fun to watch

One of the Best Chinese Period Drama!

Story:
-So fun with the dual identity, strong ML & FL which was great to watch
+hoped they would develop more of the playful humor surrounding her reveal of her double identity but then again it was during her state being attacked.
-The story is excellent with so many different characters that weave together and believable
-The ending was a bit anticlimactic when they fought the villian.
-The intrigue, the manipulation of trying to gain the throne and then the realization of what's important and how difficult it is to be in a place of power and to use it well...very good.
-And as someone commented...best portrayal of woman admiration and friendship even with liking the same person. Strong portrayal and positive light on women.

Acting:
- Yang Yang did an amazing job of the elegant, sickly genius Prince and the strong, intelligent, powerful Hei Fengxi. His small inflections, smiles and facial expresssions were well acted.
- Zhao Lusi was positively fun and excellent. Her portrayal of Bai Fengxi and then Princess Xiyun was right on target! Innocent, playful and yet strong in martial arts, smart and wanting just to exact justice not be in a place of power.
-Qiwu was played very well as the strong female clan leader and smart as a whip, supporter to both lead roles.
-Rest of the cast played every role so well...it was so fun to watch esp the antagonists and their plotting.

Overall:
I have to say this has everything: wuxia, romance, power struggle, royalty, beautiful costuming, beautiful scenery, great humor, military strategy, and well acted. Pacing, directing, sets, costuming were all good...the only thing is the ending was a bit less descriptive but all in all it made you want more! I've rewatched certain scenes so many times! You definitely cheer for the couple and it's hard to stop watching. Hope you enjoy it as much as I did/do! ;)

Not very good

Story:
-The story line was ok and it gave a good perview into the lives of chinese actors and how they have to deal with media, popularity, etc.
-Lots of choppy storylines.
-The younger sister was soooo annoying for several episodes and yet overnight grew up even with hair/makeup?

Acting:
-Good acting but the FL role was a little too much...too sassy and narcisstic in some scenes and yet she was very forgiving which I appreciated and had integrity in a tough industry.
-ML was good looking but a bit stiff and maybe a little too much even for the role
-Side kick roles were funny but not as funny as other RomComs

Overall: Didn't like it and it could have been done in less time. Will not rewatch

Really enjoyed this rom com

I've watched several cdramas now and this by far is one my favorite
It has all the sweetness and emotions played well by all the different couples.
It has real life issues, complications and playfulness: Harassment, power plays, marriage, sacrifice, motherhood/fatherhood, meaning of family, custody

The female characters are portrayed well with strong character.
The FL character is so strong and able to sacrifice so much for her son and the one she loves
The ML is playful and plays his character well coming from an abandoned background to a wealthy adoptive family overseas.

REally like the BFF of the FL lead and the sister! They were both portrayed well! Strong yet loving!
The son has great lines and says them well! He really steals the show!

And the ending is a good wrap up, not like some of them where the ending leaves feeling jilted or not complete.

Lastly, the scene where they show the other cdrama our FL & ML were in is so comical! Writer has good sense of humor
