    Not sure on historical accuracy.

    MC seems to be a historical character, however none of her deeds was ever recorded other than the name.

    The plot gets thickens more and more.
    Thanks for working on this Manwha.
    I enjoy it a lot.

    I wonder if going out will save her life and endanger her at the same time.

    I don't know about the plot getting thicker, but I have a few things to say about the incoming ship.

    I must say that Egscans really does an Excellent job with the translations on this one. The dialogue is so elegant and poetic, and it really adds to the mood. I don't even want to imagine how this would sound like if someone of the level of Line Webtoon's translators were translating this instead. D':

    Chapter 1 v2 is missing the cover and inner flap art from v1. Basically these two pages: http://www.goodmanga.net/chang-ge-xing/chapter/1 http://www.goodmanga.net/chang-ge-xing/chapter/1/2

    Whoa, it seems Chang Ge realized that her mother was up to something. She must have realized that those rumors had a certain truth to them. I wonder how she'll react to that knowledge. :O

    next update of raw (usually on 14th of the month) is cancelled, Xia Da will be going on a business trip to japan. (or so she says).
    Which means the next update will come somewhere at the end of the month, expect release sometime in december.
