Beyond the Realm of Conscience

A really good drama to watch. I just completed it and found it awesome, but I really found the ending a cliff-hanger, although I am sure not many people agree with me. Haha~ I’m sure they would say ‘USE YOUR IMAGINATION!!!’


This drama stars Charmaine Sheh 佘詩曼, Tavia Yeung 楊怡, Moses Chan 陳豪 and Kevin Cheng 鄭嘉穎.

The drama tells of 2 young girls, Sam-ho (Charmaine’s) and Kam-ling (Tavia’s) who grew up in the Imperial Palace during the Tang Dynasty. They grew up as palace maids working in the Imperial Household Bureau, which consists of four different departments, namely the Houses of Attire, Food & Beverage, Furnishing and Jewelry. Although, Sam-ho and Kam-ling started out as palace maids, they slowly rose in ranks, with Sam-ho using her kindness and honesty, whereas Kam-ling used her cunning enemies to get rid of her competitors towards her ultimate goal of being the Empress. Moses Chan is the Emporer while Kevin Cheng is a scholar in the palace.

The summary can be quite long, so the summary, here. The drama cast list, here.

Anyways, thoughts. I felt that I knew what was going to happen next, and so there were no surprises. But the thing that I love was the customes and such, so much thought – and obviously MONEY – had been put into it, the exquisite designs and whatnots.

From palace maid to concubine.

Hmm~ I only have Tavia’s. Sorry~

And the full cast, with full costumes.

And so, if you are interested, the links at Mysoju and Dramacrazy.

And the teasers.Tavia’s, Charmaine’s and Moses’, each having their own.
