The Legend of Zhen Huan: Eps 64-66

I’ve got an explanation: Ling Rong loved ZH too much and wanted ZH to love her back. But ZH gave her affections to Mei Zhuang so Ling Rong wanted MZ to die. 😛

The link above is very nice! I love the amber nail guard most~~
Actually Qing Dynasty ladies do wear long nails on the 4th & 5th fingers. Sometimes as long as 2 inches. So nail guards are pretty useful.

I am always curious about the beautiful jewelry and fashion that are in the ancient Chinese dramas.  The Legend of Zhen Huan is full of beautiful details, and the fingernail guards are no exception!

BU BU JING XIN/SCARLET HEART — reviews by and koala’s playground

Some BBJX reviews that I haven’t read yet. Rewatched BBJX recently. I don’t really like the love parts, but I do enjoy cute boys and pretty costumes! 😛

Amazing pics!!! I love this hairstyle of ZH most too! It is called a Dian Zi(钿子). Kinda like a hat, not made of real hair. Only empress and concubines of higher ranks could wear them. 

When MZ was getting back with the Emperor, I love a scene that MZ put the silk handkerchief onto her hand before the Emperor put her jade bangle back on. The silk handkerchief was smooth, in this way the bangle wouldn’t hurt her hand. This is really so elegant and moderate for a lady. 

I’m with you. I love the mother-daughter relationship in this drama very much. I felt sad for Jing Fei and Cao Gui Ren and can’t blame them for what they’ve done. (((( 

Wait for the huge storm!! HAHAHAHA

I’ve been listening to this OST for a while and still not tired of it! Really a nice CD.
I do agree that there could be some more musics for the drama. J-dramas have very good OST that C-dramas can’t compare. But I think BBJX and LZH are the good signs that C-drama music is getting up now. :P

My Drama Tea

I decided to put a Ling Rong picture for the featured image since she is the most talented singer out of all of the concubines!  In case you haven’t noticed, most of the songs from the Legend of Zhen Huan’s soundtrack that are available online are not that good quality, and it is kinda hard to find the songs with English titles.  Thankfully a kind soul uploaded the entire soundtrack in pretty good quality!

Empresses In The Palace/Legend of Concubine Zhen Huan/后宫甄嬛传 [O][2011][China] — a great review by Funn Lim

ASTRO is showing Empresses In The Palace aka Legend of Concubine Zhen Huan aka 后宫甄嬛传 aka China really loves multiple titles so as to confuse everyone, the one where people wondered how come Yongzheng is so old when Nicky’s Yongzheng so hot when the actor said he is same age as Nicky!! Anyway I read the storyline, emphasising on the italic part;

Another long and great review. It is very funny to see the author’s attitude changing through the review. At first when she started watching, she was like “Oh another palace drama. Why are there so many palace dramas and why do they sound so alike?!” When she kept on and got totally into it, she was like “I take back everything bad I said about this series except for the emperor’s performance!” (Yeah I guess she hated the emperor very very much.)

What’s even funnier was the “Most quoted line” she chose for each character. e.g. the empress’s was “You may rise.” and the empress dowager’s was “You may rise, and seat.” HAHAHAHAHA~~

Go and enjoy!

An Emperor & His Consorts : The Legend Of Zhen Huan — one great review by junipersjournal

76 episodes of “The Legend Of Zhen Huan” over the course of the past few months. This is one super-long palace drama but I’ve enjoyed watching every single episode which is full of suspense and intrigue. The drama focuses on the concubines in Emperor Kangxi’s harem.
