The storyline focuses on the legend of a wuxia romance between the elegant and unparalleled “Feng Lanxi” and the unique beauty, “Bai Fengxi”. “Feng Lanxi” single handedly established the Mo Yu Qi and has gained recognition in Jianghu. He is a prince of the current dynasty, which is unknown to the people that love him. Due to some strange events, “Feng Lanxi” and “Bai Fengxi”, who has the same amount of popularity in Jiang Hu, get married and spend 10 years together. After 10 years together, their love blossoms from blood. After a huge war, “Feng Lanxi” finally recognizes his true feelings and releases his own cultivation to save “Bai Fengxi”.
This is the first time Yang Yang and Zhao Lusi have collaborated. It’s also the first time in 3-4 years since Yang Yang has filmed an ancient costume drama.
