Tuoba Jun phased out while playing chess with the King. The king got angry and concluded that he is like that because of Weiyoung. He relayed that anger to Weiyoung and told her that no matter what, she will never be with his grandson.
Chexmix: I’m a little behind on this drama but too far in to start the recap from the beginning so I’ll recap the last 9 episodes as Weiyoung ascend in power! hahaha. This drama is achieving such a massive amount of viewership that it is hard not to want to watch it and for good reason too. Before, Weiyoung and Tuoba Jun couple is too childishly cute that makes it hard not to ship them =D and Tang Yan and Luo Jin just have amazing chemistry. After finding out that they are dating, it is impossible to not see that chemistry oozing out while they’re on screen! Beside them, Rachel Mao (ChangRu) is another actress to look out for! How can she look so innocent and schemingly at the same time!!? Kinda hoped that the characters were even more developed but definitely a good drama to watch!!
