Fu Rong (Ju Jing Yi), the second daughter of a magistrate, who has prophetic dreams about her marriage to Duke Su (Zhang Zhe Han) and subsequent demise. As she decides to try her very best to stay away from him in order to avoid her fate, she’s unaware that the Duke has prophetic dreams as well.
The prophetic dreams, I guess? Although so far they’re more confusing than anything else.
I’m too indifferent for active dislike. This drama feels very much like many, many other dramas before it. Zhang Zhe Han is as expressive as ever, which is to say not at all, but I was expecting that. I was also expecting the low budget, predictable plot, as well as the usual shenanigans and dynamics so typical of this sort of show.
Then again, to be clear, Legend of Yun Xi left a scar of burning rage on my soul, so the bar for this one is very, very low.
I mean, sure. The question is: how long will I last.
An edit at 12 episodes: This show is growing on me. It’s still bad, but somehow I find myself not disliking it. Let’s see how this goes.
