Schemes of a Beauty (2010)

Schemes of a Beauty

the story took place during the early Han Dynasty. a mother was drawn into a palace conflict where her whole family were to be executed. before she was killed, she helped her daughter escape. Yifang grew up to be a beauty with extraordinary talents. she entered the palace as a maid and was assigned the job of taking care of the young empress. the Prince showed great interest in her but kept it a secret between them as he was constantly under the watchful eyes of his mother.

the story focused on the life of Yifang, who was intelligent but often confronted by external and uncontrollable powers. it was easy to sympathize her but sometimes when her beliefs in the righteousness and goodness in human return to get her, one couldn't help but feel that she asked for it. the repetitive cycles of betrayals she went through for so many episodes, sometime even from the same person, was slightly too much to be entertaining.
