This (web)drama gets to the point really quick from the first episode. It has a ton of actions, so if you love fighting scenes or wuxia/xianxia like myself then I recommend this. The fighting style is really fast, which is what I LOVE about this show so much. The CGI is average - I love Huan's visual effects of her powers - it's very pretty especially with her pen. The only thing that ticks me off is the CGI of the arms, but shouldn't be a surprised when it comes to CGI effects. haha The storyline is interesting  there is a plot twist towards the middle or end. To put it simply, Huan is a Soul Stitcher who help heal those that are filled with bad souls (anger, sadness, resentment, etc.). So basically they seem to be possessed when they have too much of these bad souls, and the only way to be cleaned of it is by Huan's usage of the Soul Stitching pen. Of course any of her clan mates are able to clean them up as well. There's a new patient everyday so it doesn't get boring at all. Problem is the one who plays Ning Wei Yue, Dylan, acting is a bit off and stiff for my liking. His awkward acting was fine in another drama I watched but I don't think it works well in this one. It made me wished they could have cast a different male actor instead of him. The editing of the scenes were quite obvious - it's not smooth.  But you can't expect greatness from a web drama. There's more to the plot than just soul stitching so I suggest watching it if you want to know the plot twist. hehe Overall, it was a nice drama, I would definitely re-watch it if I had the time someday.
