Shi Xia and her brother, Shi Dong, have depended on each other since they lost their parents when they were little. Her brother mysteriously disappears with no trace and Shi Xia has been searching for him ever since. One day while looking for her missing brother, Shi Xia accidentally teleports to a strange xianxia world and there she meets Hou Chi, an immortal. Hou Chi adopts her as his little sister, but when her real brother, who is now the leader of the feared demon sect, reappears, both men fight to guard their little sister and their hilarious adventurous journey begins.

Surpassed my expectations for now

I am pleasantly and overwhelmingly surprised at how good this drama is right now. I say 'right now' because C-dramas have a way of going downhill somewhere in the middle. I didn't get bored once during the first 10 episodes and currently, there's no evil love rivals or meddling parents trying to marry ML off to someone to further their political aspirations. They're managed to keep my interest with humor, a dreamy fantasy atmosphere, interesting supporting cast and the relationship between Shi Xia (FL) and Hou Chi (ML). I'm amazed. I really am. Granted, it's a little goofy, but it's an amusing sort of goofy and I give them credit for being IMAGINATIVE and CREATIVE - which is something sorely lacking in a lot of C-dramas. Now for a few details.

It's apparent that there's more than just brotherly/sisterly affection between ML/FL, and FL is starting to realize that by episode 10. ML is such a novice at relationships that he's currently clueless that his behavior goes far beyond the behavior of a brother. First of all, brothers don't kiss their sisters, even accidentally, and they don't cherish a gift to the point of being flayed by a fire whip. I'm not saying that brothers aren't protective; it's just that it's clear that this relationship of theirs is something more. It brought tears to my eyes when ML suffers punishment for FL and refuses to draw a line between them despite his master's anger. And what's up with that? Why does Master Stone-Face (my name of him) hate women so much? Did some Bi Hong's mother break his heart or something? I guess we're find out.

Right now, my favorite character is FL's real brother, Shi Dong (the Devil Lord). He's such an original character from his wild attire to his 'inventions'. His back and forth with his sidekick is amusing as well. He's such a temperamental rascal I can't help but love him. However, I do wonder about this brother/sister relationship between him and FL. Are they REALLY biological brother-sister? Because he, too, seems a bit too possessive of a mere sister. The brother-sister relationships in this drama are a bit questionable and somewhat creepy, but who knows what will be revealed as the drama progresses.

All the characters are pretty interesting from sweet by shrewd Bi Hong to the meddling fanboy, Yi Yao Gua, to FL's new bestie, Qing Feng. I do kind of hate the Sect Leader right now because he's such a cold-hearted tyrant who only cares about Hou Chi becoming the Alliance Leader. He treats his own son, Bi Hong, like he's worthless because he's not a immortal. Like I said, there's got to be some story behind this guy's behavior. I'm just hoping he's not going to try to force Hou Chi to marry some sect princess or something as most parents do in C-dramas.

I just really hope that this series has a happy ending because right now it's light-hearted yet wonderfully romantic as the relationship between ML/FL grows. Also, the scenery is dreamy and divine. Wished I lived there! I really, really don't want ML/FL separated at the end - they are from different worlds after all so who knows how the scriptwriter resolved this. From experience I know I can't trust Chinese scriptwriter for happy endings. If she has to go back to the 'real' world, I hope she meets a real world, Hou Chi. I'd just as soon have both her and Shi Dong stay in the fantasy world forever.

Yes, it was far beyond my expectations!!!

Indeed, It was a great surprise for me! I thought it would be a second or third class drama, because it seems to be a low budget production, with actors not too famous. However, I am so addicted to the original and funny plot . Ando also I appreciate that male lead is always kind to female lead, there is no humiliation as in many asian drama.

I cannot stop laughing when the two "brothers" meet.
If you enjoy light wuxia romantic comedies, you shall not be disappointed. I hope it continues in the same vibe, since now the drama is still ongoing.

I will not describe the plot now. I wanna just write down a short reccomendation because I almost skipped it.

I apologize for my poor skills in English.

Have fun!
