Admin, yes ,my mother said this is best mainland drama ,i have yet watched as i have no time ,can you write a review on it?
Wow. you should watch it. really, it's worth to watch.
The story is about Lin Shu, a son of General Lin who was a brother in law of the Emperor. General Lin and his son, together with the young crown Prince was charge by some corrupt ministers for treason. The crown prince was executed. General Lin and Lin Shu who was just win the war planned to return from the frontier. But then the decree came to them, and another imperial troops slaughtered General Lin, Lin Shu and their 70,000 soldiers.
Lin Shu fell from the cliff. He didn't die, but he was bitten by poisonous creature (I forgot exactly..but if I'm not mistaken it's an ice worm). He later was saved by the master of Langya Hall. Langya Hall was a kind of a secret society who provide ranks and lists of the "most" peoples at that time. Most beautiful women, most talented pugilists, the best sword skills, etc. And basically Langya Hall knows all a lot of secret in the world, and willing to sell the info for a large sum of money. The master of Langya Hall managed to prolong Lin Shu's life for ten years. With the poison effects, the energetic Lin Shu became an ill weak man, and more than that, his face was changed. Actually...he changed and be more handsome for his case. LOL.
Later Lin Shu who now was known as Mei ChangShu befriended with a son of a prominent minister in the capital, and that's how Mei Changshu could approached and befriended with the peoples from Emperor's circle. Including his fiancee (played by Liu Tao) and the Ninth Prince.
Mei Changshu plan was to make the emperor admitted his mistake and clear his and his father's name, together with their 70,000 innocent soldiers who were unfairly slaughtered. And that plan was so smooth, and well planned, including get ridding the appointed crown prince, and made the Ninth Prince became the crown prince.
The series pace is good, not too fast, but not too slow. The actors' acting is awesome, the setting, music, etc are all good. Seriously, this is the best mainland ancient drama for years!

Admin: hi guys! I'm adding a new section on the forum. Since so many of good ancient costume series appear in the market, like Nirvana in Fire, etc. A bit touch of wuxia, but not really wuxia. Some are historical fictions with a touch of wuxia,
