I was really worried this wouldn't live up to Zhen Huan Zhuan but after viewing the first four episodes, it seems to be off to a nice start. The sheer number of episodes makes me blanch though. My interest fades and wanes like crazy.

This looks extremely promising but after being horribly disappointed by Fan Bing Bing's Empress of China, I'll refrain from getting my hopes up until I see the actual show.

Feels like Zhen Huan and Hua Fei time travelled to another period to replay a very similar storyline. LOL. Looks promising and heard fairly good reviews so far. Going to start on this in the holidays.

Have watched until ep 18 so far.  Great drama...comparable with Zhen Huang Zhuan or even better because more handsome men in this one than ZHZ....where only the ugly emperor, the prince she loves and the powerless doctor.  In this one, there are more talented, good-looking and powerful men for her to choose from... :D

Have watched 6 episodes. To be honest I'm sorta disappointed. So far it is not as good as I expected, let alone to be comparable to The Legend of Zhenhuan. I will continue watching it. Hope my opinion will change. 

Btw, 3-4 days ago the rating on Douban was 6.4/10. Right now 5.7/10. I'm not the person to trust Douban rating a lot, but it does reflect something.

I'm now 30 episodes into this drama and absolutely loving it. It's comparable to Zhen Huan, but with more storyline shifts I feel, especially since the setting changes as we follow Mi Yue through her travels. 

Sun Li's acting only seems to get better as the episodes progress.

Annyeong chingu, I am enjoying watching it but can't find a place watch it with subs. :( Viki has it subbed up to episode 5.

@halfmoonsmile Viki is currently subbing this if you require subtitles and from memory they can be watched from mobile. I watch it on the Chinese websites without subs so probably can't help you. 

@UnniSarah I think Viki will be your fastest bet...even if they are currently many episodes behind.

I'm on ep 57 of this drama so far I'd give it a 7.5/10 stars. The main lead is a great actress and even though it is my first time watching a drama with Alex Fong (Emperor Ying Si) he is a pretty decent actor. I really liked his character minus the many wives (:P haha ). Hopefully this drama won't disappoint me and if you're watching it I hope it won't disappoint you as well.

64 episodes into the show and I really want MiYue to have a bit of Zhen Huan spunk. She needs to stop sitting on the sidelines and tolerating everything. Waiting for the change...if there is one. Gao YunXiang's character also seems to come around each time she needs help...but I feel like MiYue mistreats him. 

As for Zhang Zi (spoiler ahead)...what the...how can they kill him off like that....I thought he was going to be back and help MiYue when her and her son take over the thrown. .

 I just finished Ep 66.   Someone shared that she has finished all 81 episodes of it.  Anyone knows where to watch until ep 81?  I find it a pain to wait for the update daily.  Indeed she seems to be taking a long time to show her "spunkiness".   In historical records, she was not recorded with a good reputation as in she got her power using 美人计..  In this drama, she is portrayed to be a strategic and controlled person.

The other thing I saw an interview with Sun Li, she was always concerned about acting like ZhenHuan...so I believe she consciously acted not anything like her.  In order not to be acting like ZH, she even went to the extent to request for as few scenes as possible with the cast in ZH, even though a number of them were re-cast in this Miyue.  The director and script-writer indeed took note that there were not many scenes with the ZH cast cos Sun Li said that strong memories of ZH drama would return to her and that might affect her acting as Miyue.

 

Spoiler

It may seem that Miyue mistreats YiQuJun but she became his women(Ep 66 he saved her) and in real history she had 2 kids with him and eventually killed him after 30 years due to political reasons...but in the drama they only had 1 kid and I guess she killed him like historical records cos later she had another boy-lover who looked like ZiXie appeared in her life until her end days.

 

In real history, Miyue is portrayed as a wanton woman who raised to political power by sleeping with powerful men.  In this drama, they painted her more like a heroine because people also believed that without her reigning China during that period, Shi Wang Ti would not be able to unite the entire China during his reign later.

@lovehbhjw2013

Hello, First of all I'm happy that you are watching this drama along with the others on this thread. I hope that you don't get upset with my comment regrading your recent post but I just read your comment and I wished you would have wrote spoiler in your comment as I am on ep 67 but I didn't know about

Spoiler

the death of GYXiang's character and about the other children she will have etc etc.

 

 

I was completely shocked to hear that because I haven't even watched to that part of the story yet. I hope I don't come off as rude but I just wanted you to know that there may be others who haven't seen the drama or know those details as well so it would be kind to let ppl know what they will be walking into. Thanks for reading have a happy new year :).
