The 55 episode drama airs 2 episodes every Monday to Wednesday on Youtube / Hunan TV’s evening time slot.
When I was imagining a ‘disfigured and loyal guard’, I was hoping for something more than a few blue coral patterns…
I’ll say this for lapis lazuli lightning scars: at least it’s not a mild patch of misplaced rouge we’re meant to pretend is a disfiguring scar. I know, I know, but a change is nice every now and then, right?
been waiting for a drama with Bai Lu. Luv her acting.
In the novel when Zhaoyao saved him, he was badly injured and black and blue from head to toe. He also had inky black like scars that seems to be some type of charm. She couldn’t get a name out of him so she named him Mo Qing – literally Blue Ink.
If they stay close to the novel like the pictures and teasers, then this might be a pretty good and lighthearted one to watch.
Hmm I was kind of raising my eyebrows at Mo Qing’s tattoos because from my understanding, they covered his face to the point his beautiful features are hidden from sight. But then again, I guess having huge blotches on your face is just too distracting.
