Differences from the Novel

The show's producers have announced that the series will remain mostly faithful to Bubu Jingxin, the novel by Tong Hua on which it is based, however there are some differences:

  • In the novel's beginning, though in the television series Zhang Xiao remains a 25 years old white-collar worker, her alter ego, Maertai Ruoxi, was 13 years old, not 16. Another difference was that Zhang supposedly from the year 2005, not 2011.
  • In the novel, Ruoxi is unable to return to her own time and ultimately succumbs to her illness, while Yinzhen dies ten years later amid hopes of reuniting with Ruoxi after death. The story ends with Yinzhen's son Hongli's (whom he fathered with Lady Niohuru) ascension to the throne as the Qianlong Emperor. In the television series, after Ruoxi and Yinzhen's deaths, Ruoxi's soul returns to her incarnation in the 21st century. Whilst struggling to get over the trauma of her experiences of time traveling, she encounters a man who resembles Yinzhen and is possibly a present day incarnation of him. The man does not recognize her, and Zhang Xiao remains in guilt over everything that happened when she was in the past as Maertai Ruoxi, choose not say anything but tearfully watches the man leaves.
