This is adapted from the historical romance novel of the same title Gu Fang Bu Zi Shang, translated A Lonesome Fragrance Waiting to be Appreciated, by Feng Nong (风弄). This is Angelababy first collaboration with Wallace Chung and her second leading role in a television series after Song in the Clouds (Yun Zhong Ge). Angelababy plays Bai Pingting who is describe as ‘a wise women who wisdom is wise as Zhuge Liang’.

Bai Pingting has always been contrary to the saying, “A woman’s virtue is ignorance”. Although she serves the Marquess of Jing-An as a maid, she leads a life far richer than most women. Her plain appearance is not what defines her — but her intelligence, far beyond many wise men. Although Chu Beijie was an enemy general, she still cannot help being attracted to this man, despite the many lies and conspiracies…but between love and loyalty, she must make a choice. She can only hope that man’s love for her isn’t as deep as she thought.

One is a soul who seemingly destroys peace while the other aspires to be the sword that saves. Between them, lies a mountain of hate… Who of the two most cunning people on earth cast the trap and just who captured the other? You can find the novels by Feng Nong at Yesasia. – source credits – http://www.novelupdates.com/series/gu-fang-bu-zi-shang/.

Ok, who wouldn’t want to see Wallace Chung star in a historical tv drama but paired with a good actress. Finally, it felt like forever just to see him star in another ancient television drama since, Demi-Gods and Semi-Devils & The Magic Blade. I love watching Wallace Chung in wuxia and historical tv dramas than in modern dramas but I don’t like the pairing with the female lead in this drama though, what do you think?

I don’t like the leading actress portraying the female strategist. Her facial expression is stoned face by the same constant glaring from her eyes and unimpressionable. Just staring with no worries, no sadness, no love, no chemistry. This is one of the best story but ruins it when an actor can’t portray their character, compared to Tang Yan’s character in Princes Weiyoung, Angelababy is not so convincing for this role, Argg. If you want to see two beautiful couples in emotional love story watch Princess of Weiyoung completed with English subtitles.

In recent news media, The General and I had over 10 billions views within a month. Viewer of the General and I have also criticize Angelababy & Wallace Chung for unnatural acting. No more Emoji acting, Angelababy? source; http://www.sixthtone.com/news/no-more-emoji-acting-please-angelababy

In media news it is reported that Huang Xiaoming (Condor Heroes) and wife Angelababy welcome first newborn son nickname Xiao Haimian on January 17, 2017. The couple got married on October 8, 2016.
