In the year 550, the world is engaged in a cold war that has brought misfortune to its inhabitants. Han Man Yi is a 16-year-old commoner whose village was attacked and destroyed by enemy soldiers. Barely escaping, Man Yi is then cornered by soldiers only to be saved by General Chen Zi Hua. Drawn by the youth’s beauty, Zi Hua asks Man Yi to accompany him but also gives him two options; either to take a substantial sum of money and go his own way or to remain and serve him. Having witnessed a friend murdered by the soldiers, a fearful Man Yi chooses to enter in service of the General who bestows upon him the name Zi Gao. Soon, he becomes Zi Hua's favorite concubine. Doting on Zi Gao, Zi Hua teaches him archery, swordsmanship, martial arts, and how to play the harp. Over time, an open and honest love develops between them. Zi Hua intends to make Zi Guo his Queen once he’s Emperor. Edit Translation
Cast & Credits
ACTING/CAST: I really liked the actor of Zi Hua, he is very handsome. Although Zi Gao's actor was kind of cute, he wasn’t 'THAT' beautiful and Zi Gao was supposed to be the most beautiful man on Earth... I really expected a different actor for his role (kudos to the actor for being cute).
MUSIC: The soundtrack was horrible. I have no more words to say.
REWATCH VALUE: It's entertaining and I never got tired of the sweet scenes between the main characters, they are very cute together :3
OVERALL: 8 of 10
