  1. I have very low expectations, it looks like a typical idol drama with pretty faces but shallow plot and bad acting. I am reading the novel but they changed so much from the source material that it is unrecognisable

  2. Her looks are doable but the hair...looks kind of ridiculous, a middle hair split with bangs inside??? Glad she kind of looks good in it LOL but that style just sort of annoys me.

  4. 14/9/18. 24hours since started watching this drama and it’s another block busting for my brain, heart, and senses not as mind blowing as “Legend of Fuyao” and not as heart wrenching as”Kings Woman” but those Chinese Fantasy Romance writers have done it again. I vowed I was not going to cry again watching these dramas. The what happens tears start slipping out of my eyelids at the most inappropriate moment. Times when her family are so rude to her when she turns up at her family home without her husband and he turns up to save the day or Like when he kisses her so chastely when they meet up after a short break away from each other or she is in the pouring rain and she hears her family turn their back on her. Over and over she has to be saved or she has to save someone from poisoning. Her romance with her husband has so many ups and down. Then their her relationship with her best friend and his unrequited love. You keep hoping he’ll find someone. This actor Merxat(Gu Qishao) plays an impressive part he was always there to support her, pick her up, feed her, save her, shelter her but she only had eyes and heart for her husband the main actor. Zhang Zhehan. He also comes to her rescue several time because she Ju Jingy is such a forceful (kickass) person and was always getting into trouble because she had a bit of thick skin and didn’t know when to be quiet or when to keep things to herself and solve it quietly. What I liked about the main actress was how she played the character although she had enormous challenges she never let herself down. Even when people were rude, arrogant and hurtful she stayed true and faithfully to what she believe was the right thing to do do. Even when her best friend tried to seduce her when she was drunk she was faithful to her husband who had hurt her so much. Even when her father said he wasn’t her father and had abused her in her childhood years and she hated him. She still tried to save him and her family.
    Then the story get romance gets sad and sadder as it move towards the end. You the viewers are hopping for a miracle for the three main characters. One the Leader of the rebels and Prince who is slowly dying of Gu-poison. Yunxi the heroine, the poison girl expert is desperate for a solution but ready to give her life and heart blood to make the antidote for her husband, her lover, her life. Then our anti hero, ex-enemy, poison expert who is totally and obsessively in love with the poison girl and fiercely trying to keep her alive. So that is one of our love triangles.
    Worse part she goes to the obsessive lover(remember he’s chained up) kills herself in front of him after asking him to take the blood from her heart to give to her husband. The saddest drama I ever watched, so sad, so very sad
