Based on a popular RPG of the same name. The story takes place in a fantasy medieval China that's full of kung fu action, CG special effects, and wacky humor.
Li Xiao Yao, a "Stinky Punk", journeys to Dream Island to find a cure for his sick aunt. There he meets and marries the love of his life, Ling'er. On his way back home with the cure, he discovers that he's been read moretricked by the Lunar Sect Cult so that they can kidnap Ling'er.
He awakens in his bed, having forgotten his entire trip to Dream Island, but having saved his aunt. He rescues Ling'er from the Lunar Sect Cult and is in turn rescued by a mysterious stranger who teaches him kung fu. Xiao Yao and Ling'er travel to the capital to meet her father.
Along the way, they meet various people, get harassed by the Lunar Sect Cult, discover both of their histories, save the world and fall in love with each other all over again. It starts off sweet and lighthearted but ends with plenty of tears.

I have always had a soft spot for wuxia dramas but I normally aren't able to finish them because I would lose interest or the story is too slow. However, this drama was amazing to me. It was probably the first drama I have seen with Hu Ge but he has become one of my favorites. The main characters are attractive both personality and feature wise. Very memorable drama!

I watched few wuxia drama now. I love wuxia. But i could not able to watch first episode of this drama. It was just awful. Editing is bad. Whole poor graphics. And Hu ge sucks so bad i can't watch his acting. He is neither good in comedy or seriousness. I feel he lacks charisma but there may be people who like this drama just for him. But its not about him read more though , this drama has poor quality production and story.

Similar to each other and if you like Ady An's acting, she's in this wuxia series.

    I think Hu Ge is a very capable actor. Most people doesn't like him because his roles usually are fools, but if you know him well you would find out that he's a silly excellent actor ^^

      Hu Ge is probably the most successful idol turned serious C-actor I can think of. He's so incredibly versatile its amazing to think Li Xiao Yao, Jing Tian, Guo Jing etc is played by the same person who gave us Mei Changsu, Ming Tai or Mo Xun. His depth is incredible and if you thought he was good during his CP days he's even better now

    This drama sucks so bad. How in the world they make this bad quality drama. Some of wuxia is great but not this one. Any drama with HU GE sucks bad. I come to understanding that anyone like this drama they likes it for HU GE. I just do not like his style of acting. Very manic in everything. I tried all his drama i could n't finish first episode of any of his drama. All of them bad. No seriousness. I do not think its comedy either.
