I can’t believe my ears…
Before I sat down and watched these 8 episodes all the way through (rather than just skimming through), I thought that they would be really draggy and boring, because it’s more about events that happen outside of the Forbidden City. However I was pleasantly surprised to find that they are more interesting than I thought they would be, and it’s a nice change of pace for once. It turns out that the nunnery/17th story arc was not all that bad, although I did find myself wanting to get back to the Inner Palace.
So, I have seen the “major scenes” of these episodes before, and although I knew they were sad somehow they didn’t quite register with me. I think I was in denial or something. But for some reason, when I rewatched them, I just lost it. Every freaking thing that happened, I was tearing up and crying. Omg. There are some parts that are slow, like the scenes about the emperor & his political ministers, but overall a lot of crap goes down in these episodes. Definitely tons of must-watch scenes.
To all the Zhen Huan fans, sorry for such a long wait! For some reason I just wasn’t in the mood to review LZH for a while…probably because I am depressed over Hua Fei’s fate and really bitter over the low quality of the English sub videos. Although I already watched through eps 36-40 subbed a long time ago, I decided to rewatch them RAW……..in HIGH DEFINITION. So of course I went screen-cap crazy..Anyways, throughout these episodes, Hua Fei gets closer and closer towards her inevitable demise. Zhen Huan uses her influence over the emperor to strike back at Hua Fei, but this also creates moral dilemmas and relationship issues along the way.
I have no make-up skills whatsoever…what can I say, I’m a total himono-onna! But that doesn’t stop me from noticing all the concubine’s wonderful make-up looks in the Legend of Zhen Huan. I even thought to myself, HMM it’d be nice if someone did a tutorial on this. And what do you know, today I stumbled upon a few make-up tutorials made specifically for the LZH! It’s awesome to see what drama fans can come up with. 😀
I don’t know how but LZH has gotten even more intense. The tables are turning as the empress & Ling Rong finally enter the power struggle of the harem, Mei Zhuang’s name is finally cleared, and Zhen Huan finds herself more and more unsure of the emperor’s love.
