This drama starring Wallace Chung and Angelababy is based on a book by Feng Nong 风弄. The book is titled A Lonesome Fragrance Waiting to be Appreciated and I have put a link to read the english translated chapters here – don’t read it if you don’t want spoilers to the drama.
It is about a maid called Bai Ping Ting (Angelababy) who is intelligent and smart, earning the title female Zhu Ge (a genius strategist during the Three Kingdoms era). She meets a brilliant warrior (Wallace Chung) who has never lost a battle, and becomes attracted to him despite being the enemy. Sadly, the star-crossed lovers’ disparate positions put them at odds with each other at a time when the four warring states of Jin, Yan, Liang and Qin are in constant turmoil.
This drama is set for 62 episodes and I’ve been religiously watching the released eps on Youtube (raw).
Below are the main characters starring in this drama and I’ve listed them in the caption below:
Seeing Medina Memet (dressed in white) here was a surprise because I loved her from Ice Fantasy. Also, Gan Ting Ting (red) was my fave actress from the drama Hua Xu Yin: City of Desperate Love where she acted as the mermaid Murong An. The cast is superb and since I’m regularly up to date with the episodes, I’m so glad that this drama is not flopping unlike Angelababy’s previous drama Song in the Clouds which was also overly hyped. But I have faith in Wallace Chung because I loved him in My Sunshine (with Tiffany Tang).
Since I have read the whole book this drama is based on, I know what happens but I’m still so excited to see it in action. I’m truly anticipating the love scenes between the two main characters and the fight scenes between the men! Also, I hope Bai Pingting will still stay as an intelligent and strong character and won’t change herself to becoming a weak person (which happened with Princess Weiyoung).
Fingers crossed this drama will continue on a high!!!!
