During the Tang Dynasty, Yan Li Ben encounters a young Di Ren Jie who is imprisoned for a crime he did not commit and discovers that he has a talent for solving cases. He saves Di Ren Jie and brings him along to Gan Ye Temple where he meets Wu Mei Niang, the future Wu Ze Tian. Di Ren Jie is then able to rise to the occasion and gains recognition as a godly detective. Along the way, he encounters a plot to overthrow the current regime and must do what he can to expose those who are involved though it might also include Murong Qing, the woman that he loves.
The lack of big names is probably why the show which has been completed for a while has simply faded into the background though it’s inspiring to see that its stars are slowly making gaining recognition through other projects. The show’s official weibo which hasn’t posted a single thing since April 2015 seems to have all but given up on promotions, but hey, it’s been suddenly shoved into a timeslot now to replace Legend of the Dragon Pearl.
