Synopsis and Plot Summary

A beautiful and heart-wrenching story that follows three lifetimes of romance between the fox regent of Qing Qiu and the Heavenly Prince of Jiu Chong.

Mo Yuan sacrificed his life to seal Ghost King Qing Cang (Kevin Yan Qiquan) in the Wu Wang Sea. His body remains in Qing Qiu under the care of Bai Qian (Crystal Liu) who is his most favored disciple. Bai Qian is a queen regent of the Fox Tribe and she has been betrothed to Crown Prince Yehua (Yang Yang) of the Heavenly Tribe. They never met each other until a chance encounter at a wedding in the Eastern Sea.

Yehua discovers that Bai Qian looks exactly like his late wife Su Su and that she even has the same problem with her eyes. She also finds him to be very similar to Mo Yuan. He moves in with her and begins pursuing her relentlessly. Filled with jealousy, Yehua's concubine Su Jin (Li Chun) colludes with Xuan Nu (Gu Xuan) to steal Mo Yuan's remains but the plan backfires as Yehua arrives in time to save Bai Qian. Together, they return to the Jiu Chong Heavens yet their happiness can only be short-lived once Bai Qian realizes why she looks so much like Yehua's late wife.
