Synopsis and Plot Summary

A story revolving around Song Tian Yin, an ordinary man from a small village who becomes pregnant with the future Demon King and gets pulled into the complicated world of humans and demons.

Zhu Gao (Eric Tsang) and his wife (Sandra Ng) are two demons disguised as humans as they protect the demon queen and her unborn baby. They arrive at Yong Ning Village where they meet Tian Yin (Jing Boran), a kind-hearted lad, Xiao Lan (Bai Bai He), a demon hunter and Luo Gang (Jiang Wu), another demon hunter who opposes Xiao Lan at every turn. To protect her baby, the demon queen pops it inside Tian Yin's body and he becomes a man pregnant with a monster child.

Ge Qian Hu (Wallace Chung) is paying big money for the future Demon King. In order to get paid, Xiao Lan forcefully drags Tian Yin out of the comforts of Yong Ning Village to begin a legendary journey. Along the way, they encounter a Pawnshop Owner (Tang Wei), a Chef (Yao Chen), a pair of adorable demons (Zhang Yue Xuan and Cindy Tian) and many other personalities, all while uncovering a groundbreaking secret.
