Nice Drama
9 April 2015 | by (Malaysia) – See all my reviews

Really like Sun Li's acting and all the details of the drama. Those places are beautiful as well as the scenery. Good work! First time to get know about the history or China., quite interesting. Sometimes I really get confused about the name of those concubines. But still good!! Really like this movie. Going to watch the original version of 76 episodes instead of 6 episodes! Really hope that there will be a sequence. Although sometimes I feel sad about the dead of some characters I liked in the drama. But it teach me a lot of things, especially in the real world. It's really a good drama, hope everyone enjoy it!!
