    Comments:

    Some netizens already commented its like inuyasha, the tree absorbing part. Pretty true. Treat this more of comedy genre, then you won”t be too disappointed. There’s illogical plot here & there(example, how can a modern girl adapt so fast into the ancient times?), but it doesn’t matter. A dose of fantasy doesn’t harm too much I guess, at least for this. In fact it is the plot that got me watching not the cast. Pretty long since I watched some time travel series. Surprisingly, China is showing quite a few of such plot this year. Hmm, I would say it’s gonna be a stiff competition for these time travel dramas. The costumes, to the backdrop of palace is a plus for this drama. Other than this, nothing much. Romance wise not really that much to say. If you really want to compare, I think Kdramas still truimph in romance plot. If you really miss hostorical drama, and fantasy kind of plot, don’t give this a miss.
