The trailer for the drama showcases great acting chops, if only Sun Li wasn't the lead. The actress can act, but her acting somehow always comes off as unpolished. Perhaps that's her charm.

Interesting they billed Ada Choi as "TVB rising star".. she's been there for about 2 decades now. I can't wait for this drama too. Saw the 15 minute trailer and it looks very interesting. There's A LOT of concubines this time around, moreso than the other dramas, and it looks great. Always wanted to see Ada in a Qing drama.

Woah, I was halfway of making this topic when I came across this thread on google. I only searched with the Chinese name. :p

 

This is expected to air this November, I'm not sure about the channel. I recommend watching the full 29 min trailer on Tudou. Sun Li's acting is amazing!

I downloaded the full seven books and found out that novel took place in a made up timeline, where the Emperor is not old or shaved. I would love to see the original setting recreated, instead of seeing it forced on a real dynasty. The characters' names and age had to be changed to fit the new world. It's a little disappointing if not for the amazing actors. Plus, it's nice to finally have a series with the actors REAL voices.

I am upto episode 50. Definitely a great drama.

I had doubts about Sun Li acting in this type of character, but you have to watch it to believe it. She is amazing in here.

Great cast. Great story.

Totally recommend it to anyone who loves a good ancient drama.

I'm up to 56. I wonder why there's only 56 though? ): Is it a leak or something?

 

It's a really good drama though. Definitely one of the better palace dramas.

Although it's a different time period compared to "War and Beauty". But, the storyline and characters are 80% copycat. China actress are pretty impressing though. I highly recommend this drama. Also, background settings are quite realistic.

This was a great drama, I've never finished watching a drama that has 76 long episodes before! The elaborate schemes are especially impressive, they're unlike the simple, irrational schemes you see in any recent palace dramas. You will see cruel, vicious women stabbing each other in the back and an emperor that is not appealing in personality or appearance, BUT you will enjoy it none the less. Lol.

 

The story can be split into three parts: when Zhen Huan first entered the palace, after she was exiled, and when she came back for revenge. You will the morph of her character from an innocent girl to a strong and calculating woman (over a period of more than 10 years (?)). I really enjoy watching a heroine who is not perfect, innocent, and "nice".

 

The songs were great, and all the actors were wonderful!

I agree, this drama is definitely a great production. Recently, there are so many palace drama, it is the best one. Great casts, and I think Sun Li is amazing! Can't wait to watch the rest of the episode.

Omg, this drama is really sad. But Shun Li's acting is very good, just so sad that Yun Li died

finished the drama. although it was 76 episodes, not once did I feel it was draggy or too long.

 

best drama of 2011, or in fact...best drama for a long time!

 

exceptional acting from everyone, especially the leads.

 

very well thought out story. credits go to the author of coz, but also credits to the production team for sticking to the original novel very closely.

I don't really get how this can be compared to War and Beauty. I think the plot is actually very different.

 

Anyway, this is definitely one of the best ancient series that I have seen in a few years now. I really really like BBJX. Didn't think anything could top it, but HGZHZ has definitely outdone it (in my opinion). I'm surprised that there has not been much discussion about it. It's so good!
