In ancient times, the Flower Goddess dies after giving birth to a daughter. Before she passed, she fed her daughter the Unfeeling Pill, ordered her subordinates to keep the girl’s birth story a secret and to imprison her within Shui Jing for 10,000 years. The girl’s name is Jin Mi.
4,000 years later, the Heavenly Emperor’s second son, Xu Feng, was entrapped by someone and mistakenly entered Shui Jing. He was savedby the ignorant Jin Mi. After living together for 100 years, Xu Feng gradually developed feelings for Jin Mi.
His brother, the Heavenly Emperor’s first son, uses Jin Mi to his advantage, successfully making her believe Xu Feng killed her dad. With vengence in mind, she drives the knife into Xu Feng’s heart, killing him on the spot. As she watches him fade away, he asks whether she has ever loved him, and she gives him a heartbreaking no. He vanishes into thin air and it’s that moment when she throws up the Unfeeling Pill, all bottled-up emotions flow through, opening her heart and eyes to the feelings of love. Thus begins her journey to revive him but he’s become the high and mighty Demon Lord.
