Synopsis: This drama was made in the year 2015. The story takes place in ancient China with strong fantasy elements. Hua Qian Gu is a young girl who was born with a perfume-like smell. Her mother died upon giving birth and her perfume attracted a lot of evil. The Taoist priest notices this and helps her hide the smell. He warns her father that her scent will attract evil and that his help will only protect her for sixteen years. By her sixteenth birthday she would have to go to Zu Mountain to be apprenticed. Along the way, she falls in love with Bai Zi Hua. She has friends for the first time. She begins to develop her skills. She has many love interests who are willing to sacrifice their own lives for her. Soon, Bai Zi Hua becomes her teacher to help her train. Her feelings for him grow despite the forbidden romance between teacher and student. As Hua Qian Gu struggles to hold back on her feelings and continue training, the people around her slowly begin to die or turn their backs on her as she tries to rise to her full potential.
I really liked this drama and the characters. This definitely wasn't romance-filled but I still loved it. There was no romantic action such as kissing or intense making out or anything like that. Things were kept very innocent such as hugs or caring for the other secretly since the romance between Bai Zi Hua and Hua Qian Gu was supposed to be a forbidden romance. I loved the characters and with every death, I felt sad. I enjoyed it greatly. It had two of my favorite celebrities acting as the protagonists. One, Zhao Li Ying played the role of Hua Qian Gu and did an amazing job of it. She played a cute, innocent version and then a sexy, evil version. It was great to see her do that. Two, Wallace Huo played the role of Bai Zi Hua. But he looked so different from his previous dramas and his eyebrows looked really weird.
I really liked the whole martial art concept of it. I loved how though her love interests are considered the "enemy" or just a "friend" they are willing to sacrifice everything just for her. They were willing to give up lifetime goals just for her. It was just so amazing to watch. You also get to see her true friends and her fake friends. Every story line was well done. It did drag in some parts but I still liked this drama a lot. It's not one of my favorites but it was still enjoyable.
