Well, since War & Beauty II will soon be aired in April, I rewatched War & Beauty I and found it still good. There were several impressive roles and the plot was clever. The thing that I am upset now is that the clothing in the drama seems to be so wrong.
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.
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! 😛
Also found a lot recaps by koala’s playground. How can I not read them?
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!
↑A LOT of pretty girls in this drama. 🙂
Well, actually I finished watching this drama about 2-3 months ago and felt like writing a review ever since that time. But as you see, the review is still nowhere.
When I just finished it, I was all “WTF is this SHIT!! WTF did these 2 bitches do!! WTF is this world!!! I HATE this world I’m gonna kill people!!!!!” So I thought: “well I can’t write a review like this. I could write one when I calm down.” But several months went by and when I’m thinking of this drama I still want to f**k this world!!
