Luo Qing Chuan is a modern day girl with a love of history who accidentally travels back in time to Emperor Kang Xi's era of the Qing dynasty. She becomes embroiled in the princes' struggle for the throne and is torn between her love for Yin Si, the eighth prince, and Yin Zhen, the fourth prince and future Emperor Yong Zheng. Caught in the crossfire of political intrigue, her wit and historical knowledge serves her well in her bid to stay alive as she begins to realize that true history is much darker and uglier than books portray.

    I have no idea why I thought this drama was going to be a Chinese version of “Goong” one of my fav manwha turned drama. This really reminded me of Inuyasha, maybe a little romeo and Juliet. Anyway this a really pleasant historical treat. As you have already read the synopsis, this drama is packed with plotting (come on the are in a palace), love triangles, misunderstandings and trickery.
    The working theory is that this chick goes back in time, inuyasha style, bringing modern ideas and a knowledge of how history will play out. I really enjoyed how the main female lead was head strong the whole time, and how she was inventive. I also really liked how it showed the two main characters loving each

    I think that this drama was amazing. The acting was great and the music was so very beautiful. I love the plot. Even though it seemed really complex and hard to understand. As I watched it all started to clear up and I loved it. I would definitely recommend this to people who have time and like to watch a drama that is not just a sappy love story, but a love story that is filled with difficulties and trials but also with joy and happiness.

    It's so funny in episode 18 because fourth prince falls and expresses his love for qingchuan when like two episodes before he was going to kill her in her sleep..
  • irenewong374 Jun 11, 2013
    This is light hearted and kinda funny but i think it was a waste of my time. I love Yang Mi and William but it just wasn't good.

    I enjoyed watching this drama. It is funny and easy to watch and I liked that there are no animations or special effects like in the most chinese and taiwanese dramas.

    This drama will remind you of Boys Before Flowers :) You do have to suspend your disbelief a little (there were obvious mistakes) but it's very enjoyable to watch :)
    I love the main couple in this drama! I think they have really good chemistry together because they've been in 3 or 4 other dramas together.

      well I"m trying to catch a glimpse here and there, but I'd love en subs...or learn chinese in like 5 days haha.
    • suistar Jan 26, 2012
      If you're hoping to see more of the 2 main leads then you will be disappointed... :(
    • Sandrose Jan 26, 2012
      YangMi and Feng Shao Feng? I'm glad they're all right, that;s all that matters, I wouldnlt like them to be getting into any sort of trouble, I'm fine if their appearance is just guest roles.
  • Sandrose Dec 31, 1969
    Yeah, it's watchable and the cast is lovable and all but all these mistakes they made...were cheesily cringeworthy. So many loopholes and lack of logic. Actually..Cheesy describes it well so cheesy it does make you laugh ouright sometimes. Accidentally the made quite a humorous drama indeed.
    I liked the opening theme.
  • Melwill28 Sep 18, 2011
