Startling by Each Step Episode 16

Description: Episodes:

Zhang Xiao, a contemporary, ethnically Han Chinese young woman from the 21st century, accidentally travels back in time to the Qing Dynasty period during the reign of Kangxi Emperor after experiencing a deadly combination of traffic collision and electrocution, resulting her somehow reliving the life of one of her previous incarnations and forcing her to assumes the identity belongs to her past avatar: Maertai Rexi, teenage daughter of a Manchu nobleman, who also had a near-fatal incident in her own time which Zhang awakes from.

Being stranded in the past, in the body of a centuries earlier incarnation of herself, and believe by many of Maertai’s family and friends that the sudden change of her behavior and memory loss is resulted of her head injury, Zhang Xiao awares that there will be a dangerous power struggle known to history between the scheming princes for the throne, which will results Aisin-Gioro Yinzhen to succeed as the Yongzheng Emperor after his father’s death. Zhang Xiao tries to change the future outcomes for the better, hoping to prevents any casualty as written in the future without interfering a man’s destiny, while trying to find a way to return to her time period. However, Zhang ultimately realizes that, not only she fails to alter the course of the approaching events, but also, under a predestination paradox, she is fated to become an instigator of the tragedy she tries to prevent resulted by her actions in the past and the princess’ romantic affections towards her.

    如康熙所說四爺做事太硬不懂張弛有度江山是贏到了但輸了最最愛的美人

    I love this drama! I love the couple 4th + Roxi!!! Hope they’ll do a sequel or another one in a separate story in the same History time of a Qin Dynasty.

  • im glad rouxi got over 8th, pls choose 4th prince my dear! his just way too cute!

  • Firiaru

    When I hear the 8th Prince talk about how the 4th Prince is doing this and that so he can escape having to take responsibility, I shout at the screen,’He’s not this kind of person! 14th Prince, you’d better not believe that crap!!’ The one who is really scheming is the 8th Prince. == Pot calling kettle black.

    • Guest3425

      well, u heard the 8th telling the 4th to do his job (catching the 9th for corruption)… and then he blames it on the 4th.. how very despicable

  • Firiaru

    Spotlights already exist 300 years ago??!!

    • Bethcha09

       It’s not a spolight within that time; but it’s a spotlight in TV to let its audience know what 4th is thinking…and that is, he’s seeing the person dancing as Roxi instead of the real person that is Min-Min.

  • ilovebubujingxin<3

    Cute how 13 keeps on teasing 4 about Ruo Xi.. Love him.

  • ilovebubujingxin<3

    难道你的心里就没有一个愿意嫁的人么?
    *shakes head*

    Me: Siiiighh… Poor 4:(

  • ilovebubujingxin<3

    MinMin is so pretty!

    • Bethcha09

       Roxi is much prettier.

  • ilovebubujingxin<3

    Awwww, he’s imagining that Ruo Xi is dancing!!!!! How cute is that?!
    C’mon Ruo Xi, 4th is the best boyfriend you could ever get! FALL IN LOVE RIGHT NOW. <3

  • Yellowcarnivore

    4th prince is super cute!

    • Bethcha09

       Agreed! It’s my first time seeing Nicky Wu and his performance has won me over…I’m now a big fan of his…Hopefully, he’ll do more Qin Dynasty drama because that look favors him. He looks so cute in that type of costume 🙂 especially when he wears a hat –haha.

  • sab

    There really is a tiny bit of differences between the leak version and the original..
    Like I’ve watched up till here, realised that the tune 十三爷 played for 敏敏are not the same…
    In the original version, its in Mongolian. Not the same song here… hmmmm anyways…

    • lala

      • sgwen

        hey. the leak version is dvd version. 

        • Bethcha09

           So how many episodes are in the DVD version? If it’s more than 35 and it’s different to this one that we’re seeing, I like to see the DVD to see what I have missed!
