I wasn’t planning on featuring this except for the fact that after I watched the trailer I just fell in love. Plus, the male lead’s voice is dubbed by Wang Kai! I don’t usually like palace politics dramas but this one is mixed with the supernatural…and a ton of love connections. A lot of popular ppl star in this like Chen Yao, Hu Bing Qing and Vic Zhou. Also my fave supporting characters, Han Dong and Chen Ruo Xuan!! Trailer has been officially subbed alongside some BTS clips.
My self made synopsis from what I translated before and from the trailer…thus it may be a bit messy and accuracy is questionable lol I may have…erm confused some parts of the drama with some parts of the book synopsis that I saw online…so accuracy is even more questionable. But the gist of it is basically right.
Huang Qing Feng (Hu Bing Qing) and Hu Fei Luan (Chen Yao) are sent from the fox clan to go to the imperial palace to assassinate the emperor because he keeps hunting down the foxes of the Li Mountain. They get a pellet/seed that is from the Nine Tailed Fox and split it between them, receiving beauty and grace and the ability to shapeshift into a human form. The previous emperor somehow dies and Huang Qing Feng falls in love with Li Han (the current emperor) (Vic Zhou) for his generosity and for risking his life to save her and Hu Fei Luan even though they are foxes. Li Han is trying to reform the Tang Dynasty and rid China of all demons (which as you can imagine can kinda…get in the way of other things). One other thing that I got was that Li Han was in love with Hu Fei Luan because she swallowed the “sweeter part” of the pellet (so she has seduction powers) while Qing Feng got the “sour” part of the pellet so she isn’t as pretty or eloquent.
