In ancient times, Ye Ci is a first rank maid who serves the Empress, however she was framed by someone and was sentenced to death.
In modern times, Ye Ci is a new actress who had a secret love affair with an actor called Li Lun. She wanted their relationship to be exposed publicly, so she posted a picture of him holding her hand in Weibo waiting for him to confirm their relationship.
However, Li Lun was actually fooling around with her and didn't expect that she posted their picture, so he denied it and let his fans gone crazy insulting and scolding Ye Ci in the internet.
The original Ye Ci couldn't handle the pressure and was heart broken, so she committed suicide...slitting her wrist. By the time she was saved, the original Ye Ci died and the ancient time Ye Ci took over. In her first drama, her role was a palace maid serving the emperor (Li Chuan).
Li Chuan is a singer, an actor and won many movie awards. He was known as Film Emperor in the industry. His family is very wealthy and powerful as they are in military, politic and business. Watch how this film emperor became a wife-slave.
