Oh my god, you guys.
You have no idea how many TV shows I've pushed aside so that I could watch all 35 episodes of this before I had to go back to the hostel. I haven't even watched OuAT. Or Fringe. Or Castle. OR SHERLOCK. I don't even watch Chinese dramas all the time! But this you guys, this has been so good and I had my eyes glued to the screen for pretty much all of it. IDK how many of you guys on my flist here are fluent in mandarin (or fluent enough to understand 75% of things, like me XD), but if you are and you have yet to watch this, then ohmywhat what have you been doing?! 

The romance here is fantastic. And the bromance is even better. All the men in this show are fucking adorable. AND ALL THE DRAMA. All the backstabbing and all the twists. (It doesn't hurt that everyone is pretty easy on the eye. XD) IT'S FAN-FUCKING-TASTIC, I TELL YOU.

And the costumes! ohmywhat I love period dramas, I really do. They're like my guilty pleasure. 

And Nicky Wu! NICKY WU NICKY WU NICKY WU. ♥♥♥ I love him and his smirk-y faces. THE SCENE WITH THE RAIN AND HIM SHIELDING RUO XI FROM IT WITH HIS CLOAK. This was me the whole scene ---> ♥_____♥

I hear they're filming Season 2. *SO EXCITED*

I've never watched a Chinese drama before (my bff is Chinese and she says they're all pretty boring). I mainly stick to Kdramas, but I might check this one out.

Give this a shot, bb! There's a lot of Kdrama-ish angst in it. XD
I think it's both known as Startling of Each Step and Scarlet Heart. =)

Btw, do you know the Chinese name for this? You can put it in characters/. My best friend is Chinese, so I can copy and paste.
