Another Yun Tian He’s production. Interesting story and has many loving scenes between ML and FL. The story started with FL already married to ML and towards the middle of the story, there were flashbacks on FL first met ML. The saddest part of the story was when FL asked ML three questions. 1) Can he cancel his plan to take in another wife? 2) Can he stop his attack against the Su country? 3) Can he not kill her? Every questions that she asked, he said he can’t change any of his decision. The best part of the story was the close sibling relationship of FL with her brother. I am envious of that when FL brother willingly sacrifice 10 years of his life span to save FL. Highly recommended.
FL (Su Xi) is a princess from the Su country. She married ML (Qin Lian), a crown prince from the Southern Empire. FL’s father wanted FL to create chaos in the Southern Empire administration. FL thought she could pretend to act dumb but did not realise that she has fallen in love with ML. FL has a pair of loving siblings. Her older sister has also fallen in love with ML but decided not to pursue as she knew that there would not be any good ending between them. She chose to marry the prime minister’s son instead. FL was sickly since young. She fell in love with ML when ML went to Su country as a spy. Before ML left Su country, he poisoned FL. Since FL has been sickly since young and due to the poisoning, she was predicted not to live past 20 years old.
As peace treaty, FL traveled to the Southern Empire with her father. After her marriage to ML, FL pretended to be a dumb and happy go lucky girl. One of her missions was to kill ML but FL knew that she could not do it. FL drank the poison that was prepared by ML instead. Her body was swapped and transported back to Su country.
The second poisoning had almost killed her. Her brother sacrificed 10 years of his life span to treat her sister via a very old and traditional way. However, FL could no longer be able to walk and she was only left with 1 year life span. The Su country and the Southern empire got into a war.
Southern empire lost the war and ML suspected that FL did not die. He sneaked into Su country to investigate the matter. He saw FL and when he got to know the fate of FL due to the previous poisoning, he was truly remorse. He even signed an agreement with FL’s brother to say that he will kill himself if FL pass away. ML accompanied FL to seek treatment at another country. Of course the story ended happily.
