  1. cant wait for this drama as I do like period dramas......

  2. Hi Seoul In Love, it's "whine like a baby" here. How're you? Long time no talk. Have you seen this drama? I started it but couldn't finish it. Boring plus I find Hawick & ZS acting here lacks. Their pairing was better in Cage of Love.
    I just finished Imperial Doctress.

    1. Hihi! Yep, doing great, thanks! :) I kind of skimmed through this drama. In my opinion, the beginning still quite ok. But afterwards sucks with stupid ending! I don't find ZS pretty or any 'X factor' to be the main lead. Hence, seldom watch her show though did posted a few on my blog. Is Imperial Doctress good? 50 episodes is a little too long for me, hahaa...

  3. Hey, great to chat again. Imperial Doctress is like (kind of) the chinese version of korean drama 大长今. If you're a fan of Liu Shi Shi you might like her drama but am not a fan of her. Watching because of Wallace. However I find Wallace role here mediocre (not alot of screen time as compared to 2nd lead plus his role isn't as heavy as the 2nd lead).

    1. So, you manage to finish Chronicle in the end? Actually I find ZS very sweet looking previously. A pity as she is quite a good actress, but now she looks very typical. Oh, I'm no fan of LSS either but I did enjoy watching most of her dramas (such as BBJX and Da Mo Yao). Sounds from you that Doctress is another flop for WH? Lol!

      Yes, I know the 2nd lead, Huang Xuan. I like him better in modern series. He has an upcoming drama, Translator, co star with Yang Mi. Another drama adapted from c-novel which I intend to put up soon.

  4. Hi, I'm whining as no, Imperial Doctress is not a flop for WH. Infact I think the rating is pretty good, I don't know how good. It's just that after watching him in The Journey of Flower, LMIYD, Battle of Changsa, I personally don't like his role here, not prominent as compared to Huang Xuan. Who knows...maybe it's arranged to be like this to give HX more screen time and acting opportunities.
    I didn't finish Chronicle because I just didn't like both of them here. Ever since Sealed With A Kiss, I really couldn't finish any of Hawick's drama. He don't seem to be able to express it anymore like he did in SWAK. I find ZS not as good as when she was in Cage of Love. Generally I prefer ancient drama compared to modern series but not many actresses can pull off a good ancient drama.
