I just marathon ep 1 - 12 yesterday. this show is so addictive!  I love Yang Zi & her BF's banter but as usual Yang Zi seems to be playing the same kind of roles...

Loving the chemistry between the OTP. An added plus is that they're also dating in real-life too!!

So...I started this series with a clear mind...wanting to give it a go. By the time I was 30 episodes in...I knew I had fallen in a trap...not the nice trap either that you don't want to get out. The storyline dragged hopelessly and I literally could skip through each episode in under 5 minutes and still know what is happening! I finally lost my patience and skipped to episode 90...and boy...was I angry. I'm not going to give away spoilers...but if anyone plans to watch this series...maybe think twice (or more) before wanting to tackle this. 

 

I want to meet the scriptwriter. I promise I won't hurt them.

So happy to stumbled upon this drama!!! I saw it awhile back, but didn't care much for it. Now, I'm so glad I give it a chance and just started watching it today! I'm only on ep 10, but so far I really like it. The castings are amazing. The leads are great looking, and each characters brings a little something to the table. To find out that our ML are a real couple in real life is a plus :)!! They sure have chemistry, even as they appeared to be sworn brothers at this point in ep 10. 

Question, does Kangxi already knew Yi Huan is a woman under-covered as a man in the beginning? Seems like he did, because he's so soft towards his "brother"---their relationship as sworn brother is adorable to watch. So far, there are like little crush triangles everywhere, not complaining here :). I'm liking the dialogue, acting and script. So funny and entertaining to watched!

@rosierosie The leads are no longer a real life couple but I did get into this drama because of their chemistry. The costumes and sets were quite well-made (don’t give you the cheap feel) and the cast was made up of experienced and professional actors with good looks. 

 

The plot got a bit draggy towards the end. I wish they could have made it a standalone story but it was set up as Part 1 of a quadrilogy so it had a cliffhanger ending.

Spoiler

She did not die actually but you will only find this out in the planned-but-unfilmed sequel.

IMO the rest don’t have a high chance of being filmed as: 

1) the scripts are long and the current policy environment is not very favourable for long period dramas

2) the drama didn’t perform that well in terms of viewership numbers due to the late night timeslot.

3) the leads have broken up.

 

KX did know ‘he’ was female at the beginning.

@bluehibiscus is this drama based on a book?? I looked online, but couldn't find any info on it?

Aww yeah sad to read the ML couple broke up. Yeah, 90 episodes is way too long!

@rosierosieThe scriptwriter/novelist sells memberships to a Weibo Group (need a means of payment that works in China) to read the story. According to her blog post, the last 6 episodes of the drama were cut to less than 15mins.

Guess what, I found some of the deleted scenes which show that Yihuan was not dead.

 

 

Spoiler

I think the intended ending (based on the deleted snippets) was the imperial soldiers attacked Mingzhu Valley. Brother Zhu was killed after pretending that she had fallen off the cliff to help her evade the soldiers and Mosheng told Yihuan that the attack and the killing of Brother Zhu were the direct orders of Kangxi (a flashback of the dialogue between him and Kangxi however showed that he had lied - Kangxi was furious that she didn’t return after sending Zhu back and threatened to destroy Mingzhu Valley if they did not allow her to return but he then calmed down when Mosheng asked him whether to surround and attack Mingzhu Valley. He said he and Yihuan had an agreement never to deceive and/or hurt each other so he decided to wait and see. He instructed Mosheng to go alone to survey the situation and report to him via pigeon messenger. He also specifically told him not to act before reporting to him). Filled with guilt, remorse and grief, she decided to marry Brother Zhu in a ceremony held in front of his tombstone. Later she sneaked into the palace to assassinate Kangxi but couldn’t do it. In the end, Kangxi made a pact with her to return to kill him and take his kingdom in 3 years’ time. Then I think there was a voiceover of Eunuch Li reading the emperor’s decree: Yihuan is to be allowed to leave the palace safely. Anyone who tries to stop her will be executed.

 

In the actual ending that was shown, it seemed the bloodied dress was all they could find of her after her fall from the cliff, implying that she had died or it could be her/Minzhu Sect’s attempt to make it appear that she was dead.

@bluehibiscus I read some fans were mad that she died, and the drama ended on a cliffhanger! The drama is so long, that it should give an ending; even if it's not a happy one. Did you watch the whole drama^^?
