The battle to be the King’s lady in Gui Zhong Mei Ren

Oh krap. This feeling is not good. When everything looks gorgeous and grand and then the chemistry between the leads is off. WAHHHH. WHY! I love Vic and all but his two leading ladies look like his little sisters… They really picked the youngest of the lot to be his OTP.


If you’re new here, my translated synopsis of the novel: Gui Zhong Mei Ren (柜中美人) is a drama adaptation of the novel (胭脂醉) written by Shui He. Hu Bing Qing as Qing Feng and Chen Yao as Fei Luan; former is a yellow-throated marten and the latter is a fox spirit. Docile Fei Luan is taken in by Qing Feng’s mother and both grew up to be a pair of close sisters. Vic Zhou will play the new emperor of the Tang Dynasty and Chen Ruo Xuan will play the gentle scholar preparing for the Imperial Examination. The current emperor at the time neglects his duties and spends time playing and frolicking with the ladies. He also has a habit of hunting foxes late at night. With their declining population and innocent deaths rising, the enraged Fox Clan wages a war against the royal family. They reserve a special pearl that boosts power and beauty to the consumer, which is stolen by the pair of sisters and split between them. They enter the Palace as dancers to fulfill the mission of killing the Emperor. But before the sisters could kill the emperor, he’s abruptly assassinated, and the throne goes to Vic Zhou’s character (after the Crown Prince is killed off too). It’s love at first sight for Qing Feng with the new handsome king, but his eyes follow the demure and innocent personality of Fei Luan. To keep the King for herself, Qing Feng becomes a matchmaker for Fei Luan and the scholar, and they do end up together as a couple. Obstacles arise left and right, testing Qing Feng and the King’s love. She’s sent to work as a palace maid before being freed and the King after dictating the Crown Prince, also disappears. Turns out he left his throne to live in peace with Qing Feng in the end. [Happily Ever After. DO NOT TAKE OUT AS ACCURACY IS NOT 100%]

    Historically, emperors always chose fresh young girls for their harem. Look at Yang Guifei and old enough to be her grandpa Tang Minghuang. Beside Vic looks very young for his age.

      These girls are legit a decade younger…..Lol….. They donthave that romantic chemistry from these pictures. Im hoping its better in motion. At least its not like magic mirror where Kim sae Ron is underage. Shudders.

        Kim Sae Ron and Yoo Shi Yoon are doing amazing in their drama so far. Once you get into the fiction you ignore what happens in reality, oh well, the phenomenon happens if you’re a person who lets yourself immerse in a good story and when the actors are amazing like these two are.

        I hope this drama is good. The visuals are not very appealing.

          I cant. My daughter is around the same age and it unnerves me out how they can use an underage actress when there are older actresses out there who could use that chance.

          I know they are both fantastic actors but its just from my perspective.

        I understand you.

        I guess it’s easier for me because in fiction sounds and looks better this kind of love story with these circumstances involved.

        In my country you see well educated 16 years old’s girls dating, having sex and getting pregnant so reality is so much worse.

    First, the pictures are gorgeous! Second, at least there is no awkwardness in these pictures? I definitely see chemistry grow as the story progresses 🙂
