| Princess Wei Young for President
Great series! The story is about the kind princess of Northern Liang (Tiffany Tang). After her kingdom is destroyed, and her family murdered by the greedy Marshall of Northern Wei, she feels revengeful, turning into a powerful and cunning woman while assuming the identity of her murdered friend, Wei Young. The Princess walks willingly into the lion's den when she returns to the family home of Wei Young belonging to the same clan as the Marshall. This household is full of jealous, scheming people. Moreover she catches the eye of two princes/half brothers: the sunny favorite of the Emperor, Tuoba Jun (Luo Jin) and the cunning, ambitious Tuoba Yu (Vanness Wu), causing even more trouble for her. Will she survive the power struggle and keep her humanity as well?

This drama made me think of the popular k drama "Moon Lovers Scarlet Heart Ryeo", but there was much more time to tell the story, to flesh out the characters. The great pro in comparison to k drama is that c drama has more (45) episodes.

The good: The Princess Wei Young is full of gorgeous looking siblings in rich surroundings, planning all kind of evil deeds against each other, playing a game of win or lose, but with a chance to come back again.

The bad: I know these scenes are quite common in Chinese drama, but I'm still not used to the unrealistic circus jumps or the fake horseback riding scenes, lmao.

Verdict: Still I give this drama an 8 out of 10. I couldn't wait for the subs and watched the entire show in Mandarin, it's that good.
