This looks interesting. With the Dumpling Festival (5th day of the 5th Lunar month) coming soon, this is a good time to learn about Qu Yuan. Not much is known about him, except that he's a poet and he jumped into the Mi Luo River when he despaired about the state of his country. The people were afraid that the fish would eat his body, so they threw rice dumplings into the river and hoped to let the fish eat the dumplings instead. That's supposed to be the origin of the Dumpling Festival.

I'm also watching because of Ma Ke. I liked him as Sha Jie Jie in Hua Qian Gu, although he looks a bit wierd here without all the make up. The female lead is pretty. And wow, a unicorn tiger! That's something new!! Anybody else watching this?

Only me, I'm afraid. I've watched up to Ep. 6. The costumes are pretty - King of Chu State and Qu Yuan have many colourful costumes. There are many side characters, so it's a bit confusing understanding who's who and what their motives are. Basically, it's about the states of Qin and Chu in this story, set during the period of the 7 warring states. If you watched Legend of Mi Yue, then you will find some of the characters familiar. There's a nice blend of comedy, romance, sword fighting, skilful musical instrument playing, dancing, palace concubines infighting, local magistrate fighting for the poor people, drafting men for the war, etc.

There's a young actor called Jackson Yi who plays young Qu Yuan in the drama. Apparently, he's very popular in China. He also sang the ending song.

Can someone tell me how the romance is in this series? From watching the clips, it seems that Qu Yuan initally liked Mo Chou but then they split. Then Qu Yuan married someone else and seems to love that person now. But then, Mo Chou seems to still love Qu Yuan and it looks like the Emperor loves Mo Chou?? ... so who does Qu Yuan really love?? I feel bad for Mo Chou here...

I tried to get into this one, but the synopsis already says it's a tragedy . Plus with 72 episodes it sounds Ike a really long winded melodrama.
