Master of the medicinal valley and disciple of the Jade Emperor, Zi Xuan, was well on his way to becoming a deity when he met Bai Yao Yao. A little white snake spirit roaming the mortal realm as a human, Yao Yao had no intention of falling in love with a mortal, but sometimes, the best things in life happen when we least expect them. Entwined by fate, Zi Xuan and Yao Yao should have had a beautiful life together, but when demon catcher, Fa Hai, finds the two together, he becomes obsessed with tearing them apart. Desperate to save the life of the mortal she loves, Yao Yao breaks a heavenly seal, inadvertently releasing chaos and destruction upon the human world. In order to save the world, Zi Xuan sacrifices himself, leaving a devastated Yao Yao to face a dismal eternity alone. A thousand years pass before Yao Yao allows herself to walk among men once more. As she travels, she finds Zi Xuan, now reborn as Xu Xian. Though Xu Xian remembers nothing from his past life, Yao Yao remembers everything and vows that this time, things will be different.

Just like the OTP, I involved myself in an abusive relationship with this show. I couldn't help but fall in love with the charming characters and the main leads in the beginning...but by the time the plot turned senselessly tragic, I could no longer get out of it. I just HAD to keep watching. I fast forwarded through most of the incessant ramblings among the other immortals, and I was not even interested in the secondary leads. I only wanted to see how the OTP would end up.

By the end of the show, I was so sick of the repetitive emotional onslaughts I had to endure with my frail heart. With the noble idiot trope being repeated almost every episode, I was going to take a leaf from the battered protagonists and cough up blood myself. Unfortunately only Yang Zi and Allen Ren could pull off this stunt every episode and still look so damn good that you want to keep watching them ruin each other only to reunite in sweet, tender moments then repeat the abuse again.

After nursing my heartbreak at the end of 60 episodes, I look back on the experience with sudden realisation - WTF was I thinking? WTF was everyone thinking? There were too many plot holes, illogical decisions, haphazard pacing with no real climax and a lame antagonist that wasn't even a real threat since he was reduced to being a deranged lovesick puppy. In fact, all the antagonists were so useless they only served as props to set the stage for our OTP's wretched relationship. Even the side characters' storylines were equally afflicted.

What an epic waste! All the top stars, beautiful costumes, ethereal cinematography couldn't save our OTPs from their anguish. And I grieved alongside this state of absolute despair. If the intention of the show was to bring sorrow to all viewers, it definitely succeeded.

But why, oh why? After all that stupidity, I couldn't decide if all my suffering in my viewing was worth it, just like how the show couldn't decide if it wanted the characters' sacrifices to be worth it. The end was totally confusing and ambiguous. By then, I had no idea what was going on anymore...the journey seemed so meaningless. I could only feel relief all that ordeal was over so I could snap. out. of. it.

Well, at least there was good music and I could watch the beautiful OTPs enact all that glory cum misery. Watch only if you are a sadomasochist.

First off its really refreshing compared to all the other previous makes. The white snake in here is naive while xu xuan(her husband) is the smarter one.
Also fa hai(the monk) is nice in here he wasn’t just an evil guy trying to exterminate everyone.

The acting from all characters surprised me since it’s my first time watching any of them act, and they did a pretty good job. There wasn’t any overly dramatic acting or plot.

The cgi is pretty good and xiao bai in the snake form is just too cuteeeeee!

The music is decent mostly the opening I liked it a lot.

What I didn’t like was just how the black dragon kept trying to harm xiao bai the whole time and I’m just like seriously she’s saved you... like he’s suppose to be smart since he got the dragon king’s son to listen to him but no he mistakes everyone else for his savior.

So if you like a naive but strong female lead, smart but caring male lead, and cute supporting characters that are loyal to the people they care then yeah you should watch this show. Overall 10/10
