Heroine Gu Nianhe is the domineering leader of XianYi sect, whose members have been forced to serve a General through poisoning. One day she sneaks into the General's mansion to find clues about the antidote, and there she finds and rescues a mysterious, wounded man, Mu Yichuan. She takes him as her servant and they make a deal: Mu Yichuan will tell her all he knows about the antidote if she heals him. Despite their initial untrust, in the process, the two of them grow closer. But among enemies both within and without, the General's continued demands, and Gu Nianhe's responsibilities to her sect, their future seems doomed. And Mu Yichuan's real purpose and identity is not as simple as it seems, either... Who will fall first? (Source: Estelll at MyDramaList) Edit Translation

An OK drama to pass the time

I really don't care for these short episode format dramas. This one was not 'stitched together', so there were more opening and closing credits than drama content and that was annoying. If I have to watch a short episode drama, I would have to tough out the awful sound that comes as a result of running the episodes together. Anyway, I digress...

This was an uncomplicated story, and it didn't drag. The episodes were too short to allow that. The editing was awful, as many of the episodes did not run smoothly into one another, so the scenes were choppy. Still able to follow the general plotline, however.

The ML & FL didn't have an awful lot of chemistry, but it was believable, and the directors must have completed this before the nonsensical censorship that has since gripped the film industry. I found the FL to be stiff and almost expressionless in some scenes, but for the most part the characters and the acting were just ok.

I liked the ending, although right up to the end I was prepared for something else.

If you're looking for something light to fill the time, this isn't bad. Would I rewatch? Probably not.

Sizzling mini-show with interesting storyline

This is a great mini-show. The storyline is funny, romantic and interesting. Even if it is short, it doesn’t feel rushed or lacking - and that is a sign of good writing and acting.
Character wise:
FL is a badass sect leader who wants to protect her sect and cure them from a poison. She stumbles upon ML while searching for the antidote.
ML is a shrewd but kind man with a hidden identity. He has some knowledge about the antidote so he makes a deal with FL.
Acting wise this is pretty good. The chemistry between the leads is sizzling.
Well, if you like a mini-show with an interesting storyline - and don’t mind the short format - this is definitely worth watching.
