Eventually Pei Heng asks the City Lord to place all the blame on Han Shuo. Including Chen Chuchu’s betrayal.

For the Sake of Happiness

At Han Shuo’s execution, Chen Qianqian kills herself.

But it’s all fake. She planned on leaving Huayuan city with Han Shuo.

So her sister can rule Huayuan city in peace. However, Chen Chuchu wants her fake death to become real and orders Su Ziying to kill her.

Pei Heng literally gave it away. It was a bad idea to let Pei Heng know about this fake death. But the City Lord was really good with her acting.

At the last minute, Lin Qi shows up to help Chen Qianqian.

It’s like they’re best buddies now.

And that’s a wrap for Romance of Tiger and Rose episode 21-25! I hope you enjoyed this lighthearted CDrama!

Chen Qianqian graciously yielded to her sister by faking her death yet Chen Chuchu couldn’t let go. She was already out to destroy her sister.

Because she believes she took everything that was hers. Sigh.

The very start was probably how the City Lord was so biased when it comes to raising both daughters. So the rumor was true but it was quickly silenced.

Pei Heng had a brief moment to shine. Becoming the first MALE minister of defense and paving the way for the men in Huayuan to be eligible for government positions.

Su Ziying is such a fickle character. He originally thought Chen Chuchu was the benevolent one until he saw the law Chen Chuchu passed down.

And then Han Shuo getting injured! T_T So that destroys any hope of him and Chen Qianqian having children in that world?

Or did Chen Xiaoqian fix it? By changing the ending? There’s also a couple of theories about how Mr. Han had memories of Han Shuo.

One is that since Mr. Han had an accident, he lived his entire previous lifetime as Han Shuo.

Because Chen Xiaoqian was gone for a few hours and lived a few months as Chen Qianqian. So time in this world and the world of the novel are different.

But anyways, glad to see the happy ending! For our favorite and adorable couple!
