4. An inspirational story based on a true historical character

You may need more context to better understand this drama. In Ming Dynasty, Neo-confucianism was at it's peak, the code of those principles made the status of women even more lowly. There were a lot  restrictions on women's activities. When women came out of the house and practiced certain professions, they are under a huge social judgement and pressure. In such an environment, the female lead in this drama insisted on her own dream, earning respect from those who hold a grudge against her and defying the traditions in the patriarchal society, showing a strong heart and personality. This story is quite inspirational and encouraging.  

5. Best music ever.

When the rain comes, sang by Lala Hsu, the Taiwanese singer who won the Best New Artist award at the 2010 Golden Melody Awards. She sang for two songs for this drama. The other is Before We Forget.
