STORY: Besides what's in the description above, I'll add that this is a drama that takes place in China during an "anti-Japanese" war with two factions fighting against one another. There is a lot of covert plots, espionage, secret service, and all that great stuff. This series was really gripping. I was glued for a 15 episode binge.

Total run time: approx 5h 23m. Each episode is around 18-22 minutes long but read more have 5 minutes of credits and in some cases another minute of what happened last episode. Take that all out and the run time is a lot shorter. Easy to binge in one setting with the fast-forward button.

ACTING/CAST: Same basic cast that is in Love Is More Than a Word. So it was nice to see them in different parts. They all do a great job. I totally loved Lu Zhou in both dramas and in this one he's a gun-wielding bad-ass. Also, the villian, Gu Han, from The Fairy Fox makes a cameo in one episode; see if you can spot him.

MUSIC: It was great actually. It made this show seem like a sweeping epic.

REWATCH VALUE: Of course! This is a great show with so much intrigue I need to watch it again.

OVERALL: Amazing production value. Shot in full 1080p! The sets and costume design are spectacular. It's a gorgeous production. I wish each episode was longer: credits just chew up so much screen time. For those looking for the BL aspect, there isn't anything overt but maybe something will happen in season 2.

I finished watching and I must say.. WOW.
It´s a really good series, you have to watch it. It has action and everything, and i love dramas that are in ancient times. The are good actors, and the plot is just awesome. They have a good friendship but they are both in different groups so it can´t be. But they are together for as long as possible.
I really loved the series read more so you should watch it, it´s a really storyand my fav episode is episode 6, I mean just. wow! I loved that episode so much. the last episode was a little confusing for me (how it ended) but I really hope there will be a sequel so I know what will happen because It´s a really good series.
I recommend that you at least begin watching it and see if it´s to your liking :)

It's sort of a prequel-sequel thing with basically the same prime cast.

      By the way, as AnneNoh has said, the novel goes by a different name than the show. It's actually called A Lifetime Love. The producers of the drama named it Till Death Tear Us Apart but that's a different novel. So, I haven't tried searching for it myself yet, but maybe if you were having trouble finding the novel online, it was because you were using the wrong title.

    I read the novel and have to say that I really can't see that much of a similarity to the drama.
    While I liked the novel a lot I feel that the drama is really lacking everywhere not only the story was changed a lot but also the character of zhou yao hua who is decribed as a much "colder" and maturer kind of person who only shows little emotions and only in front of Liu yu sheng.
    Not to mention that the love is totally lacking. U know in the novel they do A B and C but here is nothing of that :o
    Well whatever, just enjoy ;)

    P.S: u shouls really try reading the novel !!!

    I hope there's a season 2, i mean, with that kind of ending, I won't be satisfied until one of them confesses

    is it just me or are the episodes really short, they are all maybe 25 minutes long and that is with the opening theme and the ending theme with a teaser for the next episode. Is the version on youtube cut?

    I'm on episode 9. Okay, two questions. Is this really BL? I mean, there's little to no romance. And those who watched till episode 15, don't spoil but is the ending indefinite like Addicted's? Cliff hanger-ish or did it end normally with answers?

    There's a few episodes (up to ep 4) with eng subs for this which made me start watching it. I really liked it to the point I started watching the eps without subs, so luckily eventhough I'm not fluent, I could understand the Chinese. Haha. It's very light BL but overall it was cute ://))

    Is this based on the novel with the same name or is it just a coincidence?

      yes its the adaption from the novel.

      Hm, thanks, read somewhere that it wasn't but the summary/plot was too alike for it not to be an adaption.
