Review The story is well made and I just love the story. It was one of the stories that gave me my idea to write my own novels and is trying to find more great Chinese novels which will be good to see too.
Stars: 7 out of 6 stars
What I like: All is great, the story, the actors, the action, the secrets

Rewatchability: Yes
