I thought the General is the main Male Lead but then when second male character appeared, I started to wonder who will be the actual Male Lead. The romance started quite fast but did not last long. From the introductory episode, it sounded as if ML is a cruel character. It is quite misleading. I was hoping that FL will end up with second male lead (ML2) instead. The music arrangement is quite corny. I wonder what happen to her two other friends that seems to time travel as well. I am hoping that there is another side story on ML2 with someone he loves.
FL (Mu Wan Qing) is a Forensic Pathologist in the modern live. She went to a temple with 2 of her friends. FL was tired because work overtime the night before, she took a short nap under an old tree. Suddenly she was transported to the ancient world. She became the unfavourable Wang Fei called An Yi Xing, a 17 year old girl married to ML (Mo Yan Ke), a 28 years old general. Because of a promise made to his adopted parents, ML rejected the emperor’s proposal to marry Chu Xing Yang princess and married FL instead. They have been married for 2 years but their relationship has never been good. That was before FL’s soul was transported to the ancient world.
The emperor threatened to kill FL to force ML to marry his daughter. In order to save FL’s life, ML forced FL to leave him. When the emperor pass down the decree to ML to marry the princess, ML rejected it outright. ML was prepared to die instead of being forced. The emperor was extremely angry with ML but he did not want to loose ML due to his loyalty and capability.
After FL left ML, she was chased by killers sent by the 9th prince. She was saved by 3rd master of the Yu family. She became a personal maid to Yu Xing Chen (ML2) and when ML2 became a local magistrate of a small town, she helped him to solve murder cases.
ML2 is actually the first prince that was borne by the beloved consort of the emperor. ML2 was brought up the emperor’s teacher (Yu Lian Rong). The emperor has no idea and thought that ML had died after he was borne. Ming consort and her son was poisoned by the empress. But because of the empress’ family power, the emperor could not punish the empress despite knowing the fact. Ming consort could not forgive the emperor and died in grief.
Another interesting character called Yun An Ran who is also attracted to FL and a supporter of Chu Seng, 9th prince.
The lives of both princes, Chu Seng and Chu Zheng (crown prince) are quite sad. The emperor knew that Chu Zheng is the most suitable candidate to take over the kingdom but because of the empress (Chu Zheng’s birth mother), he could not love Chu Zheng. Everyone thought that the emperor favoured Chu Seng but actually he only used him to oppose Chu Zheng. When the emperor reunited with ML2, he wanted to pass on the throne to him but was rejected by ML2.
