I know you must be thinking to yourself, what in the world is “Gu Dai”?
Up to this point, we have been introducing to all of you out there dramas that have caught our attention. However, they’re ones that typically caters to the younger viewers. Because of that, I thought I switch things up a bit, and introduce this unique genre to those who may not be familiar. “Gu Dai” , when translated to English, means “ancient times”, and it centers around a particular era in Chinese history. With that being said, it is by no means a documentary or anything of that nature (don’t fret just yet), but rather revolved around stories filled with action, romance, and mischief, kinda like the movie “Troy” (for you westernized readers out there). Anyhow, when it comes to this genre, The Legend of Concubine Zhen Huan is a favorite of mine, and received raved reviews from well just about everyone who’s watched it. Without further ado, let’s dive into the world of imperial women and the struggles that come with their everyday lives!
