It also marks Qin Jun Jie and Shu Chang’s third time playing a couple since The Glory of Tang Dynasty, and their nth time working together given that both belong under the same management company. Lian Yi Ming whom you may recognize as the Demon God Qing Cang from Ten Miles of Peach Blossoms will be directing and acting in the series.
As is often told in history, there is no peace without bloodshed and the story follows a father and son rising above the dangerous and long-drawn battle for power among the nobles and the royals. They wave the banner ‘Tang’ and established their capital in Chang An. However, favoritism within the family leads to more turmoil between Li Shi Min (Qin Jun Jie) and the Crown Prince Li Jian Cheng (Han Dong). Amidst the political rife, Wei Zheng (Zhang Hanyu) who serves as the Prime Minister remains dedicated to keeping the peace in Chang An.
