  1. So… it’s actually pretty good! I read about it on Weibo and I thought to give it a try. It’s binge watch material so far.

    • I’m all up to date, and am enjoying it a lot so far, warts and all. Love the emperor x empress and smart palace maid x imperial guard set up. Hoping for zero romance between the emperor and Consort Ling later in the series.
