In 22 AD, the peasant brothers Liu Yan and Liu Xiu led a rebel force to overthrow the oppressive Xin empire and to restore the Han dynasty. Yin Lihua, their beautiful childhood friend, joined their fight. During the bloody battles, Liu Xiu and Yin faced death many times together before the Xin empire was finally toppled. In 23, Liu Yan was seen by the new Han emperor Liu Xuan as a threat and executed. Fearing he would be next, Liu Xiu, with the help of his new bride Yin, managed to have Liu Xuan assign him to a territory beyond Liu Xuan’s reach. However, developing a power base of his own proved difficult. In 24, Liu Xiu encountered a dilemma: in order to enter a military alliance with a mighty regional warlord, he needed to marry the warlord’s niece Guo Shengtong and break his vows to Yin. Meanwhile, Yin discovered that Liu Xuan also had feelings for her… When Yin finally reunited with her husband in 25, Liu Xiu was already the new emperor who had just captured the capital; with Guo, a woman he did not love, as his new wife. As the empire remained divided, naming Guo the empress seemed the ideal choice politically, but Liu Xiu’s heart never left Yin. Amid power struggle, war, and intrigues, could their love survive?

Another novel turned into drama….
I feel like I’m going to be in heaven soon!!!
My favorite actress growing up is in it~~ Ruby <3 <3 <3 <3
I posted above the link to the first episode.
This is a really old drama, I think it was made in the early 2000’s, I loved it when I was a child. Before the craze about all the time traveling, this was the first drama that actually used time travel.
A beautiful thief and a beautiful police gets into a fight over a jade pillow in a museum. The jade pillow takes them both back to the Ming Dynasty. The thief falls in love with the Crown Prince, the police falls in love with the Fourth Prince.
This drama is funny, it’s romantic, and it’s touching. There is some Kong Fu but not over the top.
Growing up, this was one of my favorite dramas！I hope you guys enjoy it :)

hanymshah said: I have a favor to ask. I'm looking for this period drama but I can't seem to remember it' name or it's year. All I remember i that it's about concubines and there's this one concubine who wears this hanfu with a handkerchief style top. And I think she got possessed or something that made her evil. Please can you help me out ?
Do you remember if they were speaking mandarin or Cantonese? Possessed by something evil? That sounds like 唐宫美人天下，one of the concubines gets possessed by a fox demon.

summosa said: I saw this drama called Grandson war/ Biography of Sun Tsu and I was wondering if there was anywhere I could watch it with English subtitles...
Dramas like this would be hard for English subs, I will put in a recommendation for you to sub this drama. However it really depends on the team if they are interested.
