Story: The story revolves around a young boy who was 'cursed' with a mysterious aura suppressed within him. Because of this curse, he secludes himself from others and yearns to be normal. After he is accused of murder due to his 'curse', he runs away in an attempt to discover the truth behind the murder, and along the way he finds love, friendship and family. In his journey to find the truth, read more he uncovers more than he has ever imagined - his 'curse'.

Acting/Cast: I literally fell in love with every character in this - from the main characters to even the minor supporting characters. Yang Mi and Li Yi Feng were a very sweet couple but a little dull at times. But I can't help but love them. They have a very rather bitter sweet relationship. Not sure why, but it did get a little annoying hearing her call "Su Su" all the time.. XD My favourite 'couple' were probably Zheng Shuang and Ma Tian Yu... their cute bickering was adorable. I love how naturally they appeared with one another that I always looked forward to watching their scenes the most. Who impressed me the most in this was probably Qiao Zhen Yu - I have never seen him nor heard of him before but his portrayal of his character was brilliant. *SPOILER* He played one of the best villians I've seen IMO. It doesn't hurt that he's quite good looking too!

Music: I actually loved both the opening and ending songs - they were beautiful. Though I don't really know who the singers are as I'm not very familiar with Chinese music. I love the sound of chinese oriental music so much! Even the background music that was played during any battles was rather upbeat and 'exciting'.

Rewatch Value: I don't rewatch shows much because I don't have time to and there's always so many new dramas coming out. But, I would be willing to sit through this again with english subs as I'm sure I must of missed something because I'm not 100% fluent with chinese especially when modern speech isn't used.

Overall: I highly recommend this drama especially if you like the ancient fantasy type dramas (aka wuxia). The story was wonderfully written and the actors did an amazing job with giving us this drama. Like any other wuxia dramas, the costumes are beautiful! I guess the only drawback is the 'awesome' CGI effects that they used - very typical CGI in these dramas. I know some people who cannnot stand the CGI, but to me they were beautifully created so I don't mind too much.

This fantasy wuxia drama was a decent watch. Most characters are very likable but the story line was a little bit too slow-paced. I've seen a lot of complaints about the lack romance scenes but personally I liked it. The lack of these scenes gave the show a different feel. When a romance scene came up, it had you sitting on the edge for more but it wasn't necessary to show that read more the characters cared for each other a lot. There was just enough to show the chemistry between the two main characters and their love for each other. I especially liked how Baili Tusu(Li YiFeng) didn't immediately fall in love with Feng Qing Xue(Yang Mi). Their relationship grew gradually as they became closer which is more realistic. I'm not finished with this drama yet so I'm not sure how to feel about the ending but I hope there'll be a good closure.

Both of these wuxia dramas have a main male character with stigmatized powers and familial ties that place them in difficult situations. Both leads are raised by merciful strangers who gently refuse to teach them special fighting abilities. Due to tumultuous times and unforseen circumstances these leads must master their inherited powers and defeat the evil hordes.

    I really loved this movie, fantastic scenes, beautiful and handsome characters, the magic acted, even the twisting hand of Tusu (Han Yunxi), Xing Xue, and others. I also liked the role played by Reverend Zin Yin, Granny from Youdu, the real Xun Fan (Aunt Tong), Mother Protector (Tutu's mother), Xian Liang, Fang Lang Sheng, Fuqu, Sword Immortal, so many of them to be mentioned. But I don't like how Tusu died at the last episode at season 7. But you guys tried so much.
