OH THANK HEAVEN
She’s not nice! she’s not nice! words cannot describe my joy at Mei Nian not being nice. I thought this drama was going to make her one of the disgustingly nice heroines… thank goodness that’s not happening. From a historical point, its a relief, because no woman ruler got to rule because she was a nice, passive person. Elizabeth the first killed her own cousin and I can point to other significant historical figures, but I’m sure everyone just wants to read about the drama.
For those of you who don’t know the back story, Wu Ze Tian who was first known as Mei Niang, was a concubine to two emperors, father and son. Why is it that we never stray too far from these strang relationships (look at the emperor and his “empress” in Schemes of beauty and you’ll understand) I dunno. Anyways, Wu Ze Tian did actually have a daughter and the daughter did die. HOW the daughter died and why so mysteriously has always been a mystery, some say palace women jealous of Mei Niang did it. Some say that she did it herself. The truth is, as always in dramaland, irrelevant.
