    Jealous of her sister’s popularity with the human they protect and the love she receives from the king, Mo Yin, the human form of Goddess Tengshe, colluded with the Demon Lord Shi You Ming to kill her sister Xian Yue. The act upset the balance between the God/ Human/ Demon worlds giving demons an upper hand. Xian Yue reincarnated as Ding Yao and returned to restore order. With the help of Wen Tian, a human-dragon hybrid, she set on a mission to re-forge the anti-demon vase using the holy pearls that Goddess Nuwa left behind from creating the human world.

    Another time travel series. The costumes/make up may make you laugh. Especially towards the end, the Mo Yin’s outfit, the one with feathers as head accesories, which make me thought of LION KING. It’s the only series where the time traveller can go back & forth as and when she likes. The other time travel series I have watched, ended up getting stuck at the time, or managed to get back to the era he/she belongs to but after waiting for long. Closer to the Myth (Cdrama) than Palace: locked heart(Cdrama). The first thing that she got back into the past was to the gallows so similar to the Myth. Acting wise is pretty average to me. Plot wise, can be better, if the search for the pearls is full of perils, and not so easily gathered(would prefer Chinese Paladin searching plot to be inserted here). Watch if you can’t get enough time travel series. Not much of historical insights as compared to Palace: Locked heart.

    Simlar dramas: Time travel series=>Palaced: locked heart, The Myth, 1000 years of love(K).
