    Consort Quan (Jessica Hsuan) was Emperor Daoguang (Sunny Chan) elder brother's new wife. However, Daoguang's brother was missing after a battle and his body was never found. Empress Dowager Congci (Gigi Wong) devastated that she lost her beloved son. She saw Quan as an ominous woman and wanted her dead. Daoguang was already in love with Quan since he was young. One day, he announced Quan as his new concubine, which angered Empress Shencheng (Myolie Wu). Partnering up with Empress Dowager, the two vowed to eradicate Quan using many different schemes to harm her. As Quan wanted to protect herself, she did not hesitate to battle the Empress to the end. During their battle, Quan accidentally discovered a major plot happening in the royal harem. Who is behind this big plot? Who will be the winner in this intense battle in the royal harem?

    Totally agree with you 100 percent! I watched the 1st ep tonight but switched channel after 15 mins (i think i rather watch paint dry) :smile:.

    I'm pretty disappointed with TVB's new drama 'Til Love Do Us Lie' too.

    I think this series is promising, it could be a wild card series of the year, no joke.

    Why do the women class themselves as "lo choi" (for male servants like what the eunuchs say) when it should be "lo pei" (What the female servants say)
    Especially Myolie and Jessica should call themselves "sun chip" because they are the King's wife! :S
    sorry it just sounds weird, grouping themselves with eunuchs!

    Script writers need to watch 還珠格格 to make sure they get the words right
    or is it that people nowadays don't care about getting things right anymore? Maybe aiming at the younger generation?

    I'm glad that it wasn't only me who thought this!!!

    It's a bit stupid that with a cast of near 50 with directors etc that NOBODY realised it!!!
    This an anniversary series with a lot of viewers, they could have at least got this correct
    It is very misleading to the new generation
