The story follows a lady doctor called Han Yun Xi, who marries into the royal family and gets caught in the political machinations in the palace whilst she falls into a romance with her husband. The story takes place during a chaotic time when the land has split into three kingdoms; Tian Ning, Western Zhou, and Northern Li. The Emperor of Tian Ning is cunning and distrustful and fears his own subordinate, Long Fei Ye. To dampen his spirits, the King arranges for Long Fei Ye to be married to an "ugly" woman named Han Yun Xi. Han Yun Xi is a kind and talented woman who comes from a medical family and is adept with poisons. She is also forced into obeying the decree of the king and becomes a royal consort in name only. However, circumstances allow her to show off her skills time and again, winning the admiration of Long Fei Ye. At the same time, she also forms a friendship with Gu Qi Shao, Master of Yao Gui Valley. ~~ Adapted from the novel "Poison Genius Consort" (天才小毒妃) by Jie Mo (芥沫). Edit Translation

Just finished this drama today! This was such a fun drama to watch, so different from majority of the historical dramas i watch (which have such heavy emotions).

i thoroughly enjoyed this drama. It has a good plot line (i know the synopsis told a lot but when you watch it, it's really not much) that also sets its pacing well.
We're introduced to YunXi, the daughter of the Imperial Doctor and FeiYe, Duke of Qin and the King's younger brother. The King and his mother does not believe him to be his actual brother because of an event. To help the King, the Queen Dowager ends up arranging him to be married to YunXi, who also harbors a secret. Their story then develops from there.
Apart from this, there is also the politic side of it, FeiYe's hidden secret, the secret plans from different Kingdoms, the King's own plots, and also those of his sons.

Super well done! They really played out their parts. I especially fell in love with our main girl. For most light hearted historical dramas like this, i find it hard to continue watching the main girl but for this one, i really ended up enjoying all her expressions, her scenes, and her emotions. FeiYe is your typical stone faced male lead at first but quickly ends up warming up. Their little romance is adorable to watch! and honestly, despite the amount of troubles that come between the two, they never really end up having bad blood or angsty scenes (even with that slight betrayal tag).
Another reason i stayed till the end of this drama was because of Qishao ;_; developed major second lead sydrome thanks to him. He played his part out sooooo well, i absolutely loved all his scenes!
and the side characters in this did not lose out too, they were well focused and planned out.

Opening and ending theme song for this was great and the music that played during sad scenes matched well.
Rewatch? i'll come back to this when i miss the second lead and the chemistry between all the characters here.

One thing- THE ENDING- its a really open ending (Eps49/50 are both different endings). I love this drama, not intense love but happy love. I'm really sensitive and it was only at the last episode that i cried my heart out.

The most underrated series by far. I am deeply touched by the plot and even entirely attached to love between Han Yun Xi and Long Fei Yi. Unlike other love-triangle series, the third wheel (Gu Qi Shao) is not bad as well. I laughed and cried throughout the series, and love this series, though I feel like it would be a lot better with more romance scenes between the two leads. Though the ending is a little twisted, it doesn’t matter that much.

Cheers to the production team for being able to produce such an phenomenal series.
