Gao Xin Yue has written a screenplay that was altered by her colleague, Shu Miao, without her permission. Shu Miao then submitted the altered screenplay to their company headquarters. A furious Gao Xin Yue wanted to withdraw the submission but accidentally travels into the world of the screenplay. She is now the concubine of the third prince Ling Hong. Due to the script change, Gao Xin Yue experiences countless obstacles after marrying into the palace as various characters plot and scheme for her downfall. What's worse is that Shu Miao has also time traveled along with her and is manipulating events from behind the scenes. Nonetheless, Gao Xin Yue manages to rise up the ranks from concubine to Ling Hong's consort. Thinking that everything would be back to normal once the story reaches its happy conclusion, Gao Xin Yue soon realized that things are not as simple as it seems...

Where to Watch Palace: Devious Women
Cast & Credits
Short drama with theatre show feelingsThis story plays mostly in historical setting which I preferred to the modern setting. It was fast paced, funny, clever, full of scheming and clichés, but still unexpected. The quality of the costumes and the set was very good and the acting was not bad either. I think the females did great job. I really liked the character of the 6th prince, he had great chemistry with the FL.
This is no time travel drama but more a "dream", where the female lead lives in her changed script and tries to survive the fight between all the consorts. The story switches also to the modern world, so we understand the female lead and her story better.
The episodes are very short, story is about 2-3 Minutes + nice ending OST...but I still enjoyed them and was looking forward how the story continues. With last episodes were little bit rushed in the modern setting and also very surprising to me on the other way, the historical ending felt more finished and somehow I expected it will happen like this.
Although very short, it is entertaining theatrical series with nice quality.
