Synopsis and Plot Summary

A story about twin brothers unaware of each other's existence and their journey to become martial arts heroes.

Jiang Xiao Yu (Chen Zhe Yuan) takes pride in being raised in the Villains' Valley and considers himself as the number one villain. Under the care of Li Da Zui of the ten great villains, he has become a prankster who is mischievously playful yet innocently kind. During his travels, he crosses paths with Hua Wu Que (Hu Yi Tian) and they form a relationship that's like friends and enemies. Hua Wu Que was adopted by Princess Yao Yue of the Yihua Palace. In order to take revenge on Hua Wu Que and Xiao Yu Er's birth father, she purposely separated the twins to have them lead their own lives so that they would fight each other upon meeting again. At the same time, Jiang Bie He and Jiang Yulang concoct a giant conspiracy that threatens to turn the martial arts world upside down.

Fun Facts

  • Filming took place in Hengdian World Studios, Yunnan, Ningxia, Gansu, Xinjiang and other locations.
  • The characters Xiao Yu Er and Hua Wu Que represent Fish and Flower. Yu means 'Fish' while Hua means 'Flower' in Chinese.
  • According to Producer Guo Jingyu, a remake is not just about new faces and scenery. Repeating the same story is meaningless because every generation is a jianghu, so it's about reinventing the story to fit the times. Choosing the young cast wasn't solely about their looks and popularity but also because of their performance in recent works.
  • Both lead actors are rising stars when they were casted. Chen Zhe Yuan is 21 years old while Hu Yi Tian is 24 years old.
  • It is Hu Yi Tian's first period drama.
  • Episode count was changed from 50 to 53 in the records filed with NRTA (formerly SARFT).
