That lonesome night as he lay dying in the hospital, fearing of death and desiring the taste of life, his mind became unprecedentedly complex with mixed emotions.

Myasthenia gravis — an incurable disease where one’s muscle slowly degenerated until the day when one can no longer move and only tears may flow.

“Is this… dying?”

When he opened his eyes again, he had crossed over into the body of a two-year-old infant, right in the middle of an assassination attempt.

He was born as the illegitimate son of a noble. His name was Fan Xian; and with that name came the burden of deep political secrets and the legacy of his mother.

He understood; to survive, he needed unparalleled strength, money, and political power.

To a new world with the luxury of a new life, so named; Celebrating the Remaining Life.

Wow. From the synopsis alone, drama looks to be good one.  Jang Hyuk came to my mind immediately even though I know it's  C-drama.

I also thought modern drama (wanted it to be) but  genre says ancient.  I hope this will be good well written drama, because reading the story plot,  this should be well written one. I'll check this. I'm intrigue.

Hmm.. I think I've read the exact synopsis from a book before.... :huh: I just need to remember which book was it....

Just realized this book is Mao Ni's work.... will give the drama adaptation a try then...

Mao Ni's book is usually poetic and deep.... So I hope the script writer can convey it...... 

Crossing my finger for this to be good...

I wonder how they will do with the premise. Since the reincarnation play a big part.


Fan Xian mother was also reincarnated. I believe cause of her dangerous ideas that threatened the power of a ruler is why she was killed. Atleast from the novel spoilers. So the reincarnation plot play a big part in the novel so i wonder how they will make it in the drama.


Hope it will be done well. Looking forward to the drama. Also if i remember correctly, it's a harem novel?
