Drama obsession of the month: Jade Palace Lock Heart (宫-锁心玉)

I love the clothes, I love the cast, I love the drama, and… surprisingly, I love the hair! These actors commit to the role too: no bald pate wigs for them. Nope, they’ve shaved their heads for the roles.


A young woman finds herself mysteriously cast back in time to the era of Emperor Kang Xi and ends up a maid in the palace. Two of the Emperor’s sons (he has so many that they’re referred to by their birth order) fight for her affections.


“Jade Palace Lock Heart” is a 39-episode drama from mainland China. It also goes by the title “Gong.” Check it out!
