OMG OMG OMG OMG

Du Gu Cheng, the Master Assassin and the trainer of the heroine, Hong Bi (as well as other assassins of evil minister) was whaaaaaaat?

An officer in love with the Empress!!!! OMG. And they were going to run away together, but were caught and she died (I assume with help) and he was going to be beheaded but Evil Minster said he will save him if he will become his and since his heart was dead he agreed. OMG.

But now Hong Bi is his sole weakness (not sure romantic or paternal, whatever), OMG.

Also, did I mention how much I adore the OTP of this, Li Jing and Hong Bi???? OMG. Because she is the tough, soul-weary assassin, with too much blood on her hands, and self-hatred (not only did she have to kill, for years, but at night she'd be Minister's whore, when he wanted it) and he is the idealistic, a little unworldly scholar, who is just genuinely good.

And she is the one who defends him and he doesn't want to be a burden, and I love that they have genuine clashes about mercy versus eye-for-an-eye and OMG the staring and OMG OMG OMG I love them. And he feels guilt not about her murdering the recent batch of attackers, but because he didn't kill anyone then, and so was useless and OMG he is basically the hope for her. And I love.

OTOH, evil minister's son is so annoying. Was he dropped on the head as a baby? Maniacal laughter only takes you so far...

Kind of...a bizarre mixture.

Bad guy's son is annoying, but he gets a storyline that has to be see to be believed.

Yeah, I noticed an odd mixture. Ahhh, wuxia, bringing the crack to the table.

Spoil me! Please!

Whatever it is, I hope he gets some manners...

I...have no idea how to spoil you. I have no idea how to explain it. Uhm...gentically engineered Beauty and the Beast, wuxia-crack style?

Which one is he? :P

Seriously, does he ever learn how to behave? Or maybe get an OTP even *mind boggles*

He's the beast. He gets an OTP...you've probably already seen her sighing over him and him being mean to her. Behave...ahm...no. But he has a good excuse for it later.

The Yellow Girl? (I can't keep track of the assassin lady names, so I just go by colors). Nifty! Yay. God, I love wuxia.

Also, is it wrong to ship Du Gu and Blue Girl? They are so screwed up and I totally want them together. When she was all 'I don't mind being a substitute' and he was holding her cheek? Mmmm....I kinda swooned.

On a negative note, the make-up on this show is sloppy sometimes: I can see the lines of Du Gu's wig in some shots, and ditto for the 'scar' on Blue Girl's cheek.

Oh well...

Yup, Yellow Girl. I just color coded them myself.

I completely shipped Du Gu and blue girl myself, so nope, nothing wrong with that.

Yeah, trhe make up is rather cheap...I think it was a low scale production on the whole.

Yay! I am not the only one.

I don't mind the relative cheapness on the whole (after the modern kdramas, most other dramas look cheap anyway) but I wish they took more care with such glaring errors. Oh well.
