  • Overall 9.5
  • Story 9.5
  • Acting/Cast 10
  • Music 10
  • Rewatch Value 9.5
We can start with the story. Already from the start, the story plot had me twisting in anticipation. At the most time when I thought I knew what was going to happen, it was the opposite. It is a very beautiful story, at the same time, it is kinda scary as it shows the darker side of the human nature.

I like the cast very much. I feel like the main characters read more had a excellent chemistry. Both of the male leaders portrayed their characters very well. And Xin Yue was also great.

I also enjoyed the music. At first, I didn't like the Bai Tou Yin by Della Ding as the music was a bit odd. But you grow to like the two songs by her as they play throughout the whole drama. Also, the opening song is also very nice and has really meaningful lyrics. Definitely a 10 from me!

Actually, I have rewatched this drama two times, and every single time I just couldn't stop watching. Even though I already seen it before. It is just so good.

Overall, I think they have made an excellent drama! I feel like the clothing and scenery was quite nice. I definitely recommend this one to everyone that loves for example Prince of Lan Ling, which is also one of my favorite drama.

The storyline is written by the same author, and the protagonist is portrayed by the same actress! An absolutely beautiful story with beautiful relationships. (and to say the truth I might like sound of the desert more than scarlet heart :d)

    Great drama. Male lead is awesome. Love him. He's funny, aggressive to get what he wants. Female lead is okay, cute. Story line is nice too. Both male/female leads get along very well. Jiu Ye's character is boring. Although yes, he is caring and kind. but he is really boring, sorry =( .(I'm glad Xin Yue didn't end up with him ) o.O
    Finally, the only thing I dislike would be Qin Xiang which I cannot find the value of her character in this drama. She is hateful and all she thinks about is revenge. But it seems like in the end she got nothing she wants (???) confused, why is her character even made up in the first place.

    I really liked it! The chemistry between the WuJi and XinYue was amazing♥♥ But there's a thing I didn't really liked although it still didn't stop me from enjoying it and that is the way the action scenes were made together with the scenes were they were running on the rooftops. It looked like they didn't even bother to make it seem like it's reality, but I guess that's just how the chinese cinematography is... At least it was a lot better than "A different kind of pretty man" in that aspect XD But I still enjoyed this drama a lot and I give it a 9^^

    Beautiful drama! Some moments are a bit long, but I guess that s the deal with historical dramas. Strong love story, great acting! My only regret? Not enough of hu wei li! His personnage was really interesting and could be developed more! Overall i give this a 9 !

    Trying not to spoil this.. Here I go. I felt really bad for one of the male leads, his story is just too tragic and honestly, gets even more tragic as the story continues. He made some mistakes, sure, haven't we all? But that should not be what he has to make up for for his whole life. The other guy, he's lucky to have her, but I disagree with the pairing. I just felt like the 2nd guy loved her to the point where, to me, it seemed like it was turning into an obsessive and abusive relationship. (I know their names, but I'm not trying to spoil it). It really made me question where we can draw the line for abuse in any relationship. Many times, I wanted to just drop this drama, but I have a policy to not drop dramas unless absolutely necessary. I'm glad I finished it, but I will probably never watch this drama again. Not because the characters were bad, but because I disagreed with the pairing and I felt extremely depressed for the 1st guy. I hated the ending, but kudos to you if you are a fan of this drama and liked the pairing.

    After 6 episodes I still couldn't get into it...there's smth about the female lead's attitude that puts me off...don't know if it's because she's sometimes more arrogant than confident or just that I don't like the way she portrays her character...besides I find Hu Ge's character boring; the general is fine and interesting but not enough to hook me up on this story. Dropped it.

    This drama made me fall in love with Eddie Peng. DAMN he is flawless. I finished the drama in two days & started rewatching it on the third day. Wu ji and Xin yue is the ultimate OTP. I love how they constantly tease one another. There isn't one moment I dislike with those two together :')

      Were you watching the version subbed by mj01991? She(?) tweeted awhile back that her laptop died recently so she wasn't able to sub the rest of the episodes x___x

    Wei Wu Ji is swoon worthy! I have a huge crush on Eddie Peng after finishing this drama. Overall it was a good watch, I guess because I read the translations for the novel before that I pretty much knew what happened, is why I wasn't as hooked on to the drama as I expected to be. Idk, I think my anticpations were too high for the drama before it's airing that I expected it to be as grandiose as BBJX. Well, a lot people commented that this reminded them of BBJX since both were originally novels written from the same writer. I think it's mainly because of LSS acting as the lead again but it's totally different from BBJX imo.

    I recently came across the song translations (as I watch the drama raw) and I thought it might be interesting to point out that the the ost's for the drama were written with the characters in mind.
    Hu Ge's Please live well is about Jiu Ye and Xin Yue: https://dramatictealeaves.wordpress.com/2014/09/21/song-translation-please-live-well-da-mo-yao-sound-of-the-desert/
    Li Jian Qing's Pacifying the world for you (ie. the opening credits song) is about Wei Wu Ji and Xin Yue: https://dramatictealeaves.wordpress.com/2014/10/04/sound-of-the-desert-song-translation-the-world-ive-pacified-for-you/

    The names in synopsis and names in cast are different, why ?

      Oh ok thx googled Huo Qu Bing. What is the reason Chinese dramas cant use names of their historical figures?

      Unless its historically accurate the same names can't be used. Thanks for the explanation.

    It's so addictive, this drama! I don't know if it's Eddie Peng or Wei Wu Ji who I adore but every scene he's in I absolutely love automatically.
    Hu Ge ain't bad either but Mo Xun's repressed emotions aren't my style. Give me the impulsive and badass Wu Ji any day :D
