This is a drama adapted from the novel of the same name by Tian Can Tu Dou. It is a story that talks about Lin Dong, a child from a small village who isn't favored by his family. By chance, Lin Dong obtains a mysterious artifact that is coveted by many clans in the martial world. Because of this artifact, Lin Dong is approached by many people of different clans and is forcibly involved in various events of the martial universe. Edit Translation

Cast & Credits
The story line is nothing that we haven't seen before . There are some interesting developing here and there but it is kind of your typical weak to strong protagonist fighting against evil. The romantic develop between the character was good especially between Lin Dong and Ying Huan Huan. It would good to see how everything plays out in the second part (I wish they didn't split it up).
All the actor were serviceable and all the main leads did a good enough job. Sometime the dubbing is very noticeable but apart from that there are no major complaints.
One thing i noticed was the productions put a lot of effort into the set production. You can tell they probably spent a lot of money on set pieces and they tried to build a fairly realistic world. Of course there was still a fair amount of CGI.
The beginning of the show was very slow and I really struggled. However I still continued and I feel that the second half of the series is a better than the first half, the second half things were actually happening. Another thing I felt that was off through the series was the editing, i feel that sometime story arc seems to be rush or there is no proper conclusion.
Overall this was a very average drama.
Here is my rant about this being an adaption of the novel. Being someone who has read the book, I believe this is a failure of an adaptation. The book is very much centered around Lin Dong and I know this is a drama so they have to change things but the most important aspects should at least be kept but the drama does away with all of this. I personally believe that what make people root for Lin Dong was his drive and willpower to improve himself and get his revenge but the drama basically ignores this. For the most part of the series he either has character A or B helping Lin Dong and they have to encourage all the way. If you are a like the novel I do not believe many of you will like the drama so I will recommend that you do not think of this as an adaption but just a standalone drama that has similar character names and settings.
But seriously WTF is wrong with Lin Dong character in this show?! Like WHAT THE ACTUAL FCK, He's a childish lecher prick through and through... I don't know if the actor is just bad or the director made them do this. But no matter how grave the situation is or how serious of a consequences is supposed to be... Lin Dong still act like a brainless childish prick through like 20-30 episodes of the show. Like during the Nirvana heart incident... WTF is that shit?!
Look, I get it, the directors and actors don't read the novel or manga so they had no fking idea what the characters is supposed to be like. And since it's a adaption so they had to change things to fit their needs and whatnot...But come on, at least read the description of these characters on Wikia or something... Watching this show seriously make me think that Dragon Ball Evolution is a masterpiece adaptation (no kidding).
I'm starting to think that this adaption is just a Samsara that Lin Dong is still undergoing before the final battle against the final boss.
