[Mainland Chinese Drama 2016] The Imperial Doctress 女医·明妃传

Recommended Posts

The taoist priest taught YunXian a lot of things in his own weird ways.  He taught her to investigate well before jumping to conclusions.  Medicine is just not A+B.  There are so many variables and approaches involved.  

Yes, I think Yunxian looks cute in her two long braids.  Both Yunxian and QiZhen grew up during their time in Mongolia.  And QiZhen won some respect from the Mongolians which helped to keep peace between the two countries and allowed both of them to return home alive.

Saw an interview of ID drama, the whoever it is (reporter should be), asked him how he felt about Qi Zhen choose between 江山 & 美人. He replied that he could not understand why there is a need to be "stubborn" about a certain thing or person. Of course this is a drama he said, but personally he felt, he said, since already as the Emperor, than should focus on 江山 since QZ already have 美人. He said he doesn't know if in real life was there any Emperor who loved like this - stubbornly to 1 girl, but he said that in life, some people is only with you short time, some long time, some forever.

Can see from his sentence that since QZ already have 美人, he should focus on 江山, he seemed like someone who will be faithful to whoever he commits to.  :D

I really enjoyed watching this series and can't get enough of it.  Although I still feel that Nirvana in Fire is a better drama overall but this drama is also well written especially if you understand the subtle dialogues.  I have watched dramas where Wallace Huo acted in before but it's this drama that he acted as Cheng Qi that I really really like him.  Love the costume and most of the characters here except Qi Yu's mother.  She's so irritating.  Liu Shi Shi looked best when she was in braids and her Yun Xian character is strong and that's what I like most about her.  Yun Xian is firm in her beliefs and very compatible with Cheng Qi.  Cheng Qi is so blessed to have two wonderful lovely ladies who loved him.  I like to see more of the promising actor whose character is Ye Xian in future.

It was touching to note that when Cheng Qi conveyed a message to Yun Xian to give him a sign when she wants to see him and she did that in form a book.  Although there are viewers who commented that the Ming clothing here copy Joseon style but wish to clarify that the nation that leads the fashion at that time is Ming Dynasty not Joseon Dynasty.  It's wiser to check the history first before making ignorant and untruthful comments.  The medical and prescriptions shown in this drama is real as back dated to Ming period but with current modern knowledge some of these might be obsolete nowadays.

How I wish Mainland China could produce a good quality drama about life of Huo Tuo and I will be ecstatic so The Imperial Doctress is a wonderful backup.

By chance, does anybody know whether this method actually works, the use of a needle to poke someone's fingers and toes in order to get rid of bad blood from the body as a medical treatment ?

Apparently 泻血療法  is an acknowledged age-old natural method dating back to ancient eras. Literally also known as '*Spilled Blood Therapy'. Originated from the studies of 经络学Meridian/(Body)Channels, 针灸Acupuncture and 拔罐Cupping、

There's also a similar basis therapy - 刺血療法(Pricking Blood Therapy)

For further info (as REFERENCE ONLY), take a look at these resources 刺血法簡史 LINK, 泻血疗法 LINK. and  刺血疗法 LINK or google around for more.

To everyone watching, how good is this drama from 1 to 20? How good is it compared to Nirvana in Fire?

Finally completed this drama. I wasn't able to watch on a current basis, hence could not comment much on this thread. But thanks all for interesting insights, updates and recaps, am still backtracking :)

I can't compare it with Nirvana since I haven't watched it. But I'd give ID high marks (16 out of 20) I LOVE IT! I love the plot theme of Chinese Medicine and I love the CP of Wallace Huo and Liu Shi Shi. They are so good together! LSS deserves top review for her superb acting in this drama. For me, she alone would have been able to carry the show and be interesting enough for me, being the Imperial Doctress, TYX. Wallace was so angstily awesome as QZ too. Too bad that Huang Xuan (IMO) isn't as 'interesting' for me in this drama based on his role, though he did well too. But he more than made up for it in his latest 'The Translator/Interpreter' role where he (with Yang Mi as JiaFei CP) was superb! And there's the Queen too whom I like. Sad that she has to die. 

I agree with some of you on the 'good' ending. The bangle and the book are two significant items about their mutual love. I actually don't think it's an open ending, but rather, it's a happy ending. where YX and QZ ended up together, having loved each other all through the years, and finally their love brought them together, where one waited, one found, and both with their new lease of life, metaphorically.

I also agree with some, that this is a drama adaptation not based entirely on historical facts. So there is no twist of history per se. It's a historical fusion based mainly on some facts and much clever imagination of the writer. Very much like the current popular saguk 'The Flower In Prison', except YX in ID is a real historical figure where ON in TFIP is entirely fictitious.

Definitely a keeper (for me), esp worth rewatching the parts relating to Chinese medicine, and on the CP. WH+LSS. :heart: Btw, one of my fave scenes (bet for many too) was the Snow Dance scene. Just Beautifully Done. So Lovely!:wub:
