Read The Novel:
A group of fans are trying to translate the original novel into English. But I guess the translation is in hiatus stage or they drop down the project already.

Prepare a lot of box of tissues because you will need them. I swear! I love, love, love, this Chinese drama. The story is so beautiful and tragic at the same time. The costumes, the settings, the casts, and everything, I love them all! What is interesting in this drama is the romance between Rouxi (the female lead) and the princes. Unlike other drama series, Rouxi will encounter different kinds of "love" among the princes. Friendship, first love, and true love - Rouxi will experience all of this in a world and time not really hers. I also fell in love with one of the song in the series although I can't understand any Chinese. Lol. Everytime I am hearing this song, I can't help but remember the series and feel an odd feeling in my heart. (seriously!) Unfortunately, there is no downloadable english sub for this amazing drama yet. But if you understand Chinese you can download the complete episodes in this site. BUT, fortunately, viki sub the complete episodes. Yay! I did watch it there. Watch Bubu Jing Xin with English Subtitle: Click to watch
