The Palace: the Lost Daughter (2014)

The Palace

the General's wife had given birth to three daughters previously. if she were to give birth to another girl, her position would highly affected. to her dismay, her forth child turned out to be indeed a girl. she had her nanny exchanged the child with a baby boy before informing the General. the baby boy was named Hengtai and was brought up like her own child, trained to be perfect into serving the Emperor. the baby girl was adopted by commoners and raised in the street, named Liancheng. coincidentally, the duo met and slowly developed feelings for each other. their romance led Liancheng into the General's mansion and her origins was uncovered.

the series was highly addictive as each episodes added a different and often unexpected twists to it. their romance was somewhat complicated with the involvement of the Princess, who married Hentai, and Yuxiu, who wanted revenge by destroying Hengtai and his family. in the meanwhile, Liancheng also held the interest of Yicheng, a man who also grew up in the street. his continuous pursuit often messed things up, but made the challenge towards Hengtai even more interesting nonetheless. despite the unsatisfying twists of having the duo separated twice throughout the series, each reunion was so different and unique in its own way that the wait was very much worthwhile every time.
