In the year 2196 technology has advanced so much that what was once considered extraordinary, such as immortality, has now become ordinary. Dissatisfied with her life, Chun Hua agrees to take part in a most unusual adventure, giving up her immortality for a chance to experience true love. After waking up in a completely different world and having been told that her true love will be the first person she sees when she first opens her eyes in this new world, Chun Hua believes that Xiao Bai is her destiny. But why does Shangguan Qiu Yue keep getting in her way and did she do the right thing in giving up her immortality to find true love? (Source: MyDramaList) ~~ Adapted from the novel "Through the Thunder Sky Part 1" (穿越之天雷一部) by Shu Ke (蜀客). Edit Translation

This drama was consistent throughout as a light-hearted watch that never took itself seriously. The production quality wasn't great due to the low budget, the CGI was poor and the story was practically non-existent. However, the main couple CH and QY made up for everything, especially QY.

This drama is mainly about a love triangle between a girl and two guys that are polar opposites of each other - Qiu Yue from the Demonic Sect and Xiao Bai from the Feng Ming Manor who claims to uphold the righteous side.

For me, Qiu Yue was the star of the drama. He is an anti-hero, scheming and cunning with no morals but below his cold and ruthless exterior was a vulnerable and lonely person that had an abandonment complex. Li Hong Yi did very well portraying such a complex character and the chemistry between Chun Hua and Qiu Yue was really sizzling. I loved all the kisses between them. Chun Hua was a more typical character, but she showed maturity as the drama progressed and I didn't blame her for leaving Qiu Yue in the latter half of the drama.

Xiao Bai was clearly the weakest link in the main cast. The actor portraying him had too wooden expressions and I couldn't really buy his character or his 'love' for Chun Hua. Though to be honest, his character is a very conflicted/contradictory one that didn't do him any favours either in terms of likability.

A special shout out to Feng Cai Cai who I initially disliked but became such a wonderful, understanding and intelligent character by the end of the drama.

Overall, the drama probably doesn't deserve the 8.0 rating that I gave it since it really isn't a good drama but I enjoyed the scenes between CH and QY so much that I really recommend it if you like xian xia and romance.

On a side note, the ending was actually very faithful to the book although they could have included the side stories that mentioned their child which would have made the ending more satisfying.

One of the best Chinese Drama for me. So much love for ShangGuan Qui Yue. His love for Chun Hua is so great, He is willing to sacrifice everything for her. Just the 2 of them makes the forty episodes worth watching. Even without subs, I was hooked to watch it over and over again. Makes you laugh and wanted to fall in love. Li Hong Yi is very credible in his role, his eyes will mesmerized you. Zhao Lu Si is very funny and adorable. They have great chemistry in the screen and this is more enjoyable for me than their first team up. My favorite episode is episode 30, the moment that Chun Hua realized that his destined man was Qui Yue and of course their kiss was more passionate. Although it took that long for her to realized it, but along the previous episodes she can feel her heart beating especially when Shang Guan Qui Yue will kiss her and she even cry after dreaming that He died. I highly recommend this drama.
