In the turbulent interregnum following the collapse of the Tang dynasty, a young daughter of a herbalist was tricked and sold into a brothel. After a harrowing escape from death, she eventually found herself in a city of female assassins. Assuming the new name of Wan Mei, she began to learn from ropes of being an assassin from Chang An, a young man who acted as her guide and warder.
Over time, Wan Mei and Chang An began to develop genuine affection for each other. But Cha Luo, the leader of the assassins took a dislike to Wan Mei and plotted against the couple with her cohorts. Wan Mei's personality and gifts caused Gong Zi, the hidden owner of Gui Hua City to take a interest on her. Burdened by his hidden identity, Chang An began to distance himself from Wan Mei. The protagonists found themselves embroiled in escalating conspiracies involving deadly betrayals and struggles for power.
Cast & Credits
The art direction, acting and incredible sets are as breathtaking as the massive scope of the series.
The show is good but they left out all the juicy details from the novel,
I love the opening ost, and Qu chu xiao super cute, i am glad to see him main role,
The production is beautiful, the dialog economical and exceptionally well-delivered,
I like their props the beautiful half face-mask and colourful robes and of course Gong Zi house was like in another world so breeze and cool, maybe the effect of that bamboo and emerald jade green colour. All the people maybe ship the main but for me I shipped Wan Mei with Gong Zi instead, he extended his hands to help Wan Mei when even he have a past of his mom that would need to deal off.
The actress which played as Chief Cha Lou is superb because we hate her to the bone, its indicating she did a great job as a villainess,
The BGM are even awesome. The only bloopers just the position when they need to do action which require harness so off, made me kind a sorry not dissapointed since the sets and props were mega awesome.
