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.
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.
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!

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!
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.

This is one great review of Legend of Zhen Huan. The blogger seems to be an expert in makeups, that’s why she can comment on the great making up of this drama in a professional way. Worth reading!
