  1. Thanks! So nice that you these things that I am not aware of.
    Wish the show’s camera work is less energetic. But it’s really nice to watch the qianli jiangshan art without having to brave through the palace museum crowd. BJ Palace Museum takes so much time to explore.

  2. I’m a sucker for this type of stuff, so I’m super excited for this series.

    As someone who ordered four souvenirs from the qianlijiangshan exhibit that I didn’t even go to, I’m so jealous of Li Chen. He got to film with the painting on a day when the National Palace is closed to the public, skipping the eight-hour lines to see it all by himself.

    Also, if anyone is reading this, I highly recommend buying the qianlijiangshan bookmark online quickly since the exhibit has recently ended. Easily one of the most beautiful bookmarks I’ve seen. Looks even better on a book.
