Set for 40 episodes, this historical drama stars the loving Guan Xiaotong and Song Weilong. It has started airing since January 14th, releasing 4 episodes a week! It has been receiving high ratings which tells us that this drama should be on your watch list!
Tianji Tower, the leading organisation of the pugilistic world (jianghu) is determined to overthrow Liu Ziye, the tyrannical ruler of the Liu Song dynasty. To achieve their mission, Tianji Tower replaces his sister Liu Chuyu with their own disciple and Princess-lookalike Zhu Que. Zhu Que meets the Princess’ learned companion Rong Zhi, who turns out to be a spy from Northern Wei.
Liu Chuyu and Rong Zhi’s relationship eventually breaks down overmisunderstandings and differing loyalties, and the latter fakes his death in order to regain Chuyu’s forgiveness. Somehow they accidentally lose their memories, and only meet five years later when Chuyu is sent to marry Northern Wei’s Prince regent, who is none other than the now amnesiac Rong Zhi.
Honestly, the plot turned me off a bit because it sounds so convoluted! They are making the plot complicated with memory loss, and I wasn’t sure whether I want to be pulled around like a mouse waiting for our OTPs to be together in the very end.
But, after watching the trailer, I was smitten.
I’m definitely going to give it a go now and will see how it turns out!
