Chen You You, a young woman whom circumstances force to wed Bai Li, right hand of the city’s young ruler, and who’s been hiding as a fake eunuch for years in the hopes of unveiling a deadly conspiracy.
The pacing. It’s refreshing to have such short episodes and such a fast-moving plot. Although it does lack substance, Oh My Lord makes for a fun and easy watch, perfect if you’re in the mood for something light and cheerful.
It’s also an opportunity to have a better look at Luo Zheng’s acting; I’d discovered him in Cry Me a River of Stars, which I’d started for Huang Ri Ying and ended up dropping because her character was awful (not her, just her character), and so far he’s doing a very good job.
Also, this show gave me the funniest wedding scene I’ve seen in fifteen years of drama-watching: it made me laugh like an idiot on the train.
I Don’t Like…
I mean, the plot is nothing to write home about.
Where to Watch Oh My Lord?
