Produced by the same production team as, Lan Ling Wang, Autumn's Concerto and Material Queen, the drama is loosely based on Hosokawa Chieko's manga 'Hakushaku Reijo'.

Cast & Credits
The second leads were bearable. I didn't like the thief, Xiao Han's character at first. Her character was only an annoyance and didn't really spice the drama. After going through more than a third of the episodes, her character was better. Her acting was explosive as an antagonist. Though, not to reveal many spoilers, her character description based on previous actions didn't really suit her later actions. Like the damsel, she dropped her character and forgot to pick it up.
The second male lead annoyed me the most. I may be biased towards Bai Lang because he was so hot but the second male lead only served as an annoyance. I didn't feel anything for him.
Overall, the script went stale after 20 episodes. The beginning kept me interested because Bai Lang and Jiang Xin's chemistry was too cute for my heart. But after that, it went stale and boring.
Otherwise they were all fit for there roles. The thing I especially love about this drama is the loyalty and brotherhood between Bai Zheng Qing and his surroundings.
The drama is worth watching don't miss out for those who love romance, history, mafia, some comedy, unexpected and expected type of drama.
