Mei Gongqing Chapter Index


Mei Gongqing (The Bewitching Courtier) by Lin Jiacheng

208 chapters; 38 bonus chapters


Update: I have received Lin Jia Cheng’s express consent to translate this novel. It is illegal to take my translations without permission or to use it for monetary gains.

This is a ‘rebirth’ story where Chen Rong, the heroine, finds her second chance at life after burning herself to death. Set in the Eastern Jin era when bureaucrats and their lofty yet equally hypocritical and oppressive ideas once ruled the empire, Chen Rong is made to use her past life’s experience to survive and hopefully find happiness this time around.

Yes, it’s over 200 chapters -_- so don’t ask me what I’m thinking. It’s not often I finish something this long let alone finding it lovely. But there you have it. It was such a lovely read from beginning to end. For once, the heroine sticks out like a sore thumb not because she’s an alien from the future, but because there are simply outcasts in any era in time. She can’t help who she is, she tries to conform, but she nevertheless knows herself better than anyone else and admirably stands by her choice. A serious plot that is nevertheless scattered with gaiety, a winsome OTP, and an ending that somehow manages to pull away happy. Check, check, and check.

All aboard!

  1. Cliffhanger! 😀 i just love the plot.. twists and turns make my head spin. Your translations are awesome… thank you very much!


  2. Just like to say Thank You! for the translation. I just ‘discovered’ this novel while browsing yesterday and read through everything through one night! I slept at 7am! I noticed you started this project in 2015 and appreciate very much that you’re faithfully following through in 2017 despite your schedule. Alas, I can’t wait! Will attempt to read the original Chinese (a real challenge) or listen to the audiobook to find out what happened.

    By the way, your translations are great! I think it’s quite difficult to translate Chinese into English because poetically beautiful Chinese descriptions when translated into English may come across as melodramatic. You did a wonderful job of conveying the atmosphere of the novel in English though. Thanks once again!
