In order to redress the injustice of late Crown Prince, Wei Lin, the Chief Commander of Zhangluan Army, a rough and illiterate female general, marries Gu Ming Zhu, the handsome sickly son of Gu Cheng Yuan. But Ming Zhu turns out to be an imposter and is actually Jiang Juan, the new leader of Ling Pavilion, an assassin organization. He is in cahoots with General Wei's enemy, the 2nd Prince of Qingyue. Jiang plotted his admission into General Wei's mansion to steal her "Yan Yu" to detoxify the poison in him...

A villain who can switch to a coquette (flirt) ?

I've had this in my currently watching for so long, and decided to watch it finally after so long.

Idk why i waited so long, because this was really nice, it definitely deserves to be one of those well worth watching short length series

The story was okay, I think some parts were a tiny bit hard to follow and it was regarding the past events, but apart from that it was very simple and the political stuff though it was there, I didn't find it heavy or too much, because of the the drama was spent on the leads, whether building there relationship or stuff related to them.

The costume were really nice, the male costume when being the flirty husband fit his sickly image so well, and tmhis outfits as the villain also fit him really well. The FL general outfits were okay, she wore female clothing and she looked absolutely stunning!!, she could rock both, which I liked!. Ofher side costume were good as well.

The acting for the FL was okay, but the ML caught my attention, seeing him act all flirty like a concubine trying to get their master's affection, and then switch to a villain haha ?.. he did a great job, and I loved his character all together, great antihero ❤️. Other side characters acting was nice as well.

The songs in this one was really nice.

I also loved how not because it was a short drama, their romance wasn't rushed at all, it had time for the FL to fall in love with the ML. I also liked how the misunderstanding was cleared.

There were funny moment, sweet moment, a little bit of sad moments, and a full epsiode for a happy ending (rare) ... don't forget steaming kisses, there chemistry when kissing and being intimate were nice.

Highly reccomending short length series!

Hero x Antihero

TLDR; A fun miniseries with some interesting characters and refreshing dynamics. It's nothing wow, and the little plot it does have is quite standard in concept and mediocre in execution, but it delivers rather unique main leads and a refreshing love story.

Whump meter: ▲◭△△△ (mild/very little).

【Very mild SPOILERS below】

►CHARACTERS:
‎ ‎ ‎ ‎ ‎ ‎ The highlight for me was definitely the main couple, both refreshing characters we don't often see in a refreshing dynamic we also don't often see. FL is a rough general who suffered a lot but still holds a lot of kindness in her heart (portrayed by an actress who actually looks like she could be a fighter!) while ML is a shady guy who switches from helpless and delicate to homme fatale. Together, they make quite the power couple (unfortunately, we didn't see much of this though), and they're adorable together. Basically, Hero FL & Antihero ML.

‎ ‎ ‎ ‎ ‎ ‎ My only issue is the unfortunate trope of FL having great flaws that make no sense for her character that the character simply wouldn't have if it were a man (like being illiterate ?). Meanwhile, ML yet again excels at everything. Since they're doing the role reversal anyway, just commit to it. It didn't really take away from the experience, but I thought it was still worth mentioning.

‎ ‎ ‎ ‎ ‎ ‎ Side characters were fine for the most part. I enjoyed the main couple's attendants/right-hand men. Prince Yue was also quite an interesting character. I'd say the most dull was Princess Sijiu, who only appeared for a handful of scenes (and was also the ONLY other female character, which is always a minus in my book, but at least they had a good relationship).

►ACTING:
‎ ‎ ‎ ‎ ‎ ‎ I didn't have an issue with any actor's portrayal. They all did a good enough job, but I'd say ML's actor stood out as the best. He portrayed various rather complex characters very well!

►STORY:
‎ ‎ ‎ ‎ ‎ ‎ Hilariously, the worst aspect would have to be the story. If you stop and think about something, it all falls apart. There's very little plot to go around, but an unusual amount of attention is put on it. Conflicts and issues are resolved rather quickly, so the stakes are pretty low too.

‎ ‎ ‎ ‎ ‎ ‎ I think it would've worked better with romance as the main plot and then a sprinkle of something else here and there instead of this romance/political drama. In these sorts of small productions, less is usually more, so keeping things simple is ideal, but yeah.

►PRODUCTION:
‎ ‎ ‎ ‎ ‎ ‎ Production quality is okay, noticeably low budget though. There's a lot worse, but there's a lot better out there too. It didn't bother me too much, not did it take away from the experience either.

►MUSIC:
‎ ‎ ‎ ‎ ‎ ‎ The music was not very memorable, just alright. I do remember it being somewhat out of place in certain moments, though.

◇ Was it what I was expecting? Yes
◆ Did it live up to its potential? Somewhat
◇ Would I watch it again? Yes, I loved the main couple
◆ Would I recommend it to others? Unlikely
