Startling by Each Step Episode 20

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.

    This is the best Chinese best drama I’ve seen so far. I love every episode of it. The first 14 episodes or so were funny, romantic; and the other 14-35 episodes were so intensely emotional that made me cry in every single episode of those.

    Episode 20 is one of the best episodes!! Love seeing the 4th with Rosi.

  • Bethcha09

    First of all, thanks so much to Vicki’s team for translating this wonderful drama. I know very little chinese characters and don’t speak madarin. I saw this in the other posts in mandarin and gotten only 1/2 of what was going on. Wow, now I’m enjoying it understanding full of what is going on.

    I love the couple of 4th with Rosi. They make such a nice couple!! Love their performance!

  • Bethcha09

    I love Nicky’s acting. It had been superb!!!

  • DomWinchester

    It’s sad to see 13th prince in such a bad situation.. He is my favorite prince !

  • wter

    8th prince is bad at heart. but 4th prince actually cried upon hearing 13th prince helping out. so it is clear who is the good guy here. I think nicki wu acted really well in this role. kevin cheng soso only.

  • Guest

    holy fucking hell. it’s only episode 20 and some idiot fucktard posts up the ending for everyone? thanks for ruining everything.

  • cabbagewins

    I suspect if 8th prince set 4th prince up because of jealousy. He just mentioned “at last RX went with 4th prince” not long ago and then shortly after the setup happened.

  • cabbagewins

    I think 吳奇隆 acts so good. He 面無表情 because he cannot reveal his emotions on his face he mentioned to survive in the court you need to do that. He acts from his eyes.

    • Mui

      Me too, today i tot can watch episode 21, but sadly i had been checking is there any new drama up yettt :((

  • Aimikomi

    I wonder which episode does 14th prince begin falling for Ruoxi. I am thinking probably this episode lol

    • Aliciaatann

      He fell in love with her during The horse issue with princess min min. The drama is like hinting that 14th prince is falling in love with her alr. But he never really realise it (and ruoxi also).

      • Aliciaatann

        Correction: ruoxi dint realise 14th prince is falling in love with her

  • Mui

    tmr i hope there is a new episode for 21 🙁 ! 

  • Aimikomi

    So from the comments below, 8th prince realize Ruoxi doesn’t care for his comfort so he slapped her hand away, but what was she trying to pick up that represented she didn’t care?

    • fluffpanda

      i think she was picking up his robe/pant leg thing to stop it from getting wet. and he was like, omg, you’re not actually listening to me at all ><"

      • Aliciaatann

        No no! I think it should be ruoxi don’t give a damn to 8th prince’s concerns because she jolly well know that it’s 8th prince’s schemes that leads to 13th’s imprisonment. So she wants him to leave her alone.

        See? Got see her being nice to 14th? Because deep in her heart, she knows it’s 8th idea not 14th’s idea plus he helped to save his brother during the morning meeting.

        • Aliciaatann

          &8th prince is like, “I know you know it is me” ><

  • ky

  • Guest

    Fourteenth prince make me think that he likes ruo xi too 

    • Mingxing15

      yes, he does

  • Sphen93

    among all the a ge, i like the fourteenth prince the most. he is so cute and handsome. he is even cuter in real life when he attended the variety show  ” happy camp.”

    • Southpaw

      among all the ah ge, i find 13th the most charming, so talented, suave, loyal

  • 囧==


  • when is 21 coming out?!?!?!?!?! 🙁

    • Jus amazed

      Why bother? Since u are so smart and know everything alr.

  • Guest

    ruo xi so fortunate to have so many protectors and good friends

  • toppo

    可怜的十三 :(

  • VivianC

    omg.. this episode is so sad!!! i even cried when they cried… that was such a evil scheme from 8 ah ge… T_T

  • Guest

    i dont get it….at 8:38 part 3, why did he smack off her hand?

    • Gosh

      it is because RS realized that the 8th Prince is the one conspired the whole set up for the 4th Prince… she doesn’t care anymore of his care cos he is too cunning to get to the throne…

    • Vivi

      i think it is because the 8th prince asked her to mind her own business rather than involving into the war. so it is like “stop concerning for us !!!” 

  • Kirara

    14 a ge, is so thoughtful, the others were trying to protect her from the rain but he was more worried about her health.. so he brought food for her to eat.. how sweet! 🙂 

    • Elaine

      yesyes so sweet!!!!
      i think 14 a ge really like her loh!!! haha:)

    • Katrina

      i know right, i think that he just don’t wanna tell her cuz he know that 8 a ge likes her, how sad i think they are cute together. 

    • in the end they got married! 14 and ruo xi. but soon thereafter, she died

      • Adda

        Can u shut up and don’t be a spoiler?

        • Everything is online. -.-even the picture of her dying in his arms is one of the promotional photo. DON’T YOU KNOW? =.=

          • Adda

            Well, i don’t fucking care about online news, I JUST WANNA ENJOY THIS SHOW, JUST FREAKIN SHUT UR MOUTH!!!!!

          • Hmm

            be good to other viewers. no need to get so mad. 

          • Passer-by

            Spoiler are sooo irritating. It doesn’t make u look smarter to “remind” us the ending.
            It is others choice not to read the book. We don’t need you to tell us the story in kinda a lousy way. U jus spoil the good story for other viewers.

          • gtfo

            wtf Cassandra blah blah. could u plz shut ur big mouth?? just because u read the book doesn’t mean everyone has. and not everyone goes on the internet and google “步步驚心 spoilers” all day so please, keep it to yourself?

  • hahahahhaa

    ohmygod. i love this drama so much <3
