Trailer with English Subs:

Set in the Ming Dynasty under the reign of Emperor Xianzong who became infatuated with a Royal Concubine Wan (Wan Zhen'er), a woman 19 years his senior. Emperor Xianzong's infatuation with Royal Concubine Wan caused him to neglect the other women in his inner court. The worried court officials pressured the Emperor to take in new consorts. Thus, the door to the Royal Harem opened to four women who would later cause havoc in the palace. Credit: sugo

I haven't watched this drama yet, so I don't know if it's good or not. Ady An plays a sweet palace maid, Shao Chunhua, entangled in a intricate web of court schemes while Feng Shaofeng plays her love interest, a royal court musician, Yang Yong, bent avenging his brother's death. Patrick Tam portrays the historically infamous and ambitious eunuch, Wang Zhi, who is also emotionally invested in Chunhua and marries her as his bride. Eunuch+marriage=Interesting combo!
