    Default Lady Fan

    Synopsis:


    Fan Lihua is the daughter of General Fan Hong from Xiliang’s Han Jiang Pass. As her mother passed away early, and there is only her father and 2 brothers in the family. As she grew up surrounded by men, she developed a straightforward character who is clear on her likes and dislikes.

    Fan Hong arranged for his daughter to marry General Yang Fan due to political reasons. However, Lihua has always hoped to marry someone she really loves and disliked Yang Fan’s traditional and haughty character, so she ran away on the eve of the wedding. Lihua went to look for her teacher, the Holy Mother (HM) Lishan whom she learnt sorcery from since young. The HM advised Lihua to return, as she had to fulfill her destiny of helping the Tang Dynasty conquering Xiliang, and during the war, she will meet her husband. This man will also be the one to save the Fan family in future. Lihua was disappointed that fate has arranged a stranger to be her husband. Lihua returned to Xiliang just as Tang was attacking the Pass and she was tasked to lead an army into battle. At the battlefield, Lihua saw that the man who is supposed to be her husband is actually Xue Dingshan from the Tang army!

    Xue Dingshan is the son of Tang’s Xue Ren Gui, otherwise known as Prince Ping Yuan. He is a simple man, filial, traditional and sees things only in black and white. Lihua was in a dilemma, as her fated husband is not only stubborn and a stick in the mud, but is also her country’s enemy. However, Lihua believes her teacher’s words that Dingshan will be able to save her family’s lives in future, so she decided to heed her teacher’s advice and marry him in the battlefield. Dingshan had never thought of marrying Lihua so he had no intention of admitting marrying Lihua in the battlefield. Most importantly, he is in love with his teacher’s adopted daughter, Chen Jinding who grew up with him.

    Lihua found out that an old official, Cheng Yaojin has some influence in the Xue family, so she sought his help. Yaojin felt that as Lihua is well versed in both martial arts and sorcery, she will be of great help to Tang if she marries into the Xue family, so he agreed to help persuade Dingshan’s parents. Lihua and Yaojin later brought the matter to the attention of the Tang Emperor, who ordered Dingshan and Lihua to marry. Dingshan had no choice but to obey the imperial edict.

    On the other hand, Dingshan and his family treated Jinding very well, as they still think that she is a more suitable daughter-in-law. Dingshan also tried to find ways and means of making Lihua back out of the marriage and kept picking on her but she was not disheartened. Instead, she put in more effort to learn Tang’s rules and how to be a good wife. Dingshan knows Lihua spent a lot of effort to help the Xue’s family and began to feel for her and their relations improved. However, whenever Lihua felt that she is finally accepted by the Xue family, some misunderstandings will happen and they will be unhappy with her again. Lihua was finally chased away by Dingshan but she still does not give up. Although she knows that Dingshan apologized to her as they needed her help to fight off the enemy, she still helped him and end up being wounded.

    Dingshan was also touched by Lihua’s dedication and after spending time with her, he subconsciously started to like her. Jinding fell in love with Dingshan, and she bought up the issue of marriage to Ren Gui and Jinhua. However, on the wedding day, Dingshan postponed the wedding for Lihua’s sake. Jinding realized that Dingshan has fallen for Lihua and to prevent Dingshan from being snatched away, she created misunderstandings between them. Dingshan accused Lihua of being shameless and a disappointed Lihua left the Xue family.

    After Lihua left, Dingshan accidentally found out that he had misunderstood her. However, Lihua has given up on Dingshan and he regretted his actions. On the other hand, Fan Hong and sons failed in their attempt to assassinate the Tang Emperor and were captured and sentenced to death. Lihua knew that her father and brothers were only held by a spell so she broke the spell and rescued them. With Jinding stirring up more trouble, almost everyone thought that Lihua’s intention of marrying Dingshan is so that she can spy on the country and their misunderstanding intensified.

    Eps 1

    Fan Lihua, the daughter of Xiliang’s General Fan Hong, studied under her teacher, the Holy Mother (HM) of Lishan for many years. However, she realized that recently, during her training, she will see a shadow of a man holding a weapon. She could not understand the meaning of her vision and sought advice from the HM. The HM pointed out that Lihua still have ties with the mundane world, and asked her to leave. Lihua returned to her hometown in Hanjiang. She had a quarrel with the Yang Fan over the hunting of some animals and when Yang Fan realized that she is Fan Hong’s daughter, his attitude changed. Yang Fan asked Fan Hong for Lihua’s hand and her brother Fan Wei agreed to the marriage on his father’s behalf as he wanted to strengthen their political standing and also because his wife was nagging at him.

    Lihua was displeased that her family had accepted Yang Fan’s wedding gifts and disguised herself as a Han woman so that she can go into Tang territory but was chased by her 2 brothers Fan Wei and Fan Wu. A Tang soldier, Xue Dingshan thought that the 2 men were forcefully snatching a Han woman and fought them off and helped Lihua into Tang’s border. Lihua had a good impression of the kind hearted Dingshan. Fan Wu and Yang Fan were worried about Lihua’s safety so they risked entering Tang’s border to look for her. Unfortunately, Fan Wu’s identity was exposed and was captured by Bao Yi Hu. Lihua accidentally got hold of Dingshan’s token and found out that Fan Wu has been captured when she was about to return the token to him. Lihua met Dingshan when she went to the barracks to save her brother and returned the token to him. However, Dingshan thought that she is a spy from Xiliang and they had a fight. Yang Fan took the opportunity to set fire to the store.

    Lihua returned the ring to Yang Fan and subtly rejected his offer of marriage. The HM gave 2 rings to Lihua, and told her the man who can split the rings and who wields the Fang Tian Spear will be her future husband, and together they will be able to dissolve the enmity between Tang and Xiliang. Fan Hong and Dingshan’s father’ Xue Rengui started a war and the 2 of them were trapped in a forest with poisonous gas. Lihua and Dingshan risked their lives to save their fathers and when Lihua met Dingshan, her rings spilt up just as the HM predicted and she realized her future husband is Dingshan.


    Eps 2

    Lihua and Dingshan were stunned when the rings slipped onto their fingers magically. Dingshan and Lihua slipped down a cliff and when they held hands, a strange power emerged. Rengui and Fan Hong came out of the poisonous forest and the injured generals decided to retreat. Dingshan fainted as he sustained internal injury and breathed in too much poisonous gas and Lihua asked the HM to heal him. The HM told Lihua that she has not fulfilled her destiny and gave her a magic bean. After Dingshan went missing, Yihu and his sister Bao Xian Tong sneaked into the enemy’s barracks to investigate his whereabouts. Fan Hong advised Lihua to agree to marry Yang Fan but she gave an excuse to delay her decision.

    Dingshan was grateful to the HM for saving his life after he regained consciousness. The HM wanted him to wed Lihua but as he was influenced by his father and biased against Xiliang, he would rather die than to marry her. The proud Lihua also could not accept Dingshan and the HM tried to advise them. Yihu and Xian Tong reported back to Rengui, and wanted to sneak back to the enemy camp again but was stopped by Rengui. The Duke of Lu, otherwise known as Cheng Yaojin, suggested that Rengui take the opportunity to ask the Emperor for reinforcements to capture Hanjiang Pass. Rengui went along to the border to demand for Dingshan’s return, or he will eliminate Hanjiang Pass. Yang Fan took the opportunity to tell his men to find Dingshan.

    Fan Wu asked Lihua why she was unhappy and she told him the secret about Dingshan. Lihua brought Fan Wu and Yang Fan for the meeting and while she went away, Fan Wu pretended to be injured while sparring with Yang Fan so that she can slip away. Dingshan thought that Lishan poisoned his food and refused to eat and Lishan tricked him into eating. Lishan was poisoned and fainted when she was out picking magical herbs for Dingshan’s medicine. As Dingshan has recovered, he bid farewell to the HM and unexpectedly found the unconscious Lihua on his way home.

    Eps 3

    Dingshan had no choice but to look after Lihua. When she awoke, she took the opportunity to make him sing and pluck fruits for her. After taking the HM’s medicine, Dingshan recovered and wanted to leave but Lihua tricked him into staying. Yang Fan tried to get into the good books of Fan Wu but was unsuccessful. Dingshan thought that Lihua was feigning illness to make fun of him and left in a huff but was captured by Yang Fan. Yang Fan set a trap for Rengui, using Dingshan as hostage to force Rengui to rescue his son single-handedly.

    Lihua rescued Dingshan from the prison so that he can save his father, on the condition that he return for her hand 3 days later. Dingshan had no choice but to agree. Rengui was injured by an arrow when he went to save his son when Dingshan suddenly appeared to help him. However, the 2 of them were no match for the archers and Lihua used sorcery to help them escape. Yang Fan suggested to Fan Hong to take the opportunity that Rengui is injured to give chase but Lihua advised her father not to start a war as Tang reinforcements are on the way. Rengui wanted to punish Dingshan for secretly learning martial arts but the rest of the family pleaded for leniency on his behalf. Xian Tong accidentally found out about the ring on Dingshan’s finger and agreed to keep it a secret for him.

    Dingshan met Chen Jinding, whom he grew up with and is secretly in love with, and is secretly pleased when he found out that her foster father has opened a school at Yumen Pass. When Dingshan did not come for her hand as promised, Lihua decided to look for him secretly. Fan Hong felt that Lihua was behaving strangely and forced Fan Wu to tell him the truth. Lihua berated Dingshan for not keeping his promise and Dingshan, fearing that Jinding would misunderstand, quickly denied that he promised to marry Lihua. Lihua was furious when he insisted that she is the one who insisted on marriage. Jinhua was afraid that Lihua’s antics would alarm Rengui, so she told Lihua that she will let Dingshan marry her if she can show her sincerity within 3 days.


    Eps 4

    To find out what sincerity means, Lihua went around asking strangers but to no avail, until she found a bride and gained some insight from the bride’s experience. Lihua went to look for Yihu and forced him to tell her what id Dingshan’s favorite food. Master Chen knows that Dingshan is interested in Jinding, and told her to think about her marriage.

    Lihua rushed to Cheng Du to buy Dingshan’s favorite dumplings from He Man Ji but the restaurant had closed down and the owner retired. She finally managed to find the owner to make a batch of dumplings for her. On her way back, she met a crying Cheng Yaojin and was under the impression that his son was buried under a pile of rocks. She helped him rescue his son, only to realize that his ‘son’ is actually a prize winning cricket.

    Yaojin harassed Lihua to teach him martial arts along so way, so when she arrived at Xue’s residence, the dumplings had turned cold. Jinhua claimed that Lihua is not sincere and chased away away. However, Lihua would not give up and stood outside to wait for Dingshan, regardless of wind and rain. The Xue family were afraid that Rengui would see Lihua at the door if he goes out and tried ways and means to make him stay home. Yaojin went to the Xue’s house and saw Lihua waiting outside, but the forgetful Yaojin could not remember who she was. Lihua waited for Yaojin to come out and tried to make him remember who she is. Yaojin took her home and after hearing her out, agreed to help her.

    Yang Fan saw the letter Lihua wrote to her family but her family misled him into thinking that Dingshan seduced Lihua and went to Yumen Pass to look for Dingshan in a fir of anger. Rengui thus found out about the whole matter. Lihua told Yang Fan that she will only marry Dingshan and made him return to Hanjiang Pass. Yaojin tried to persuade Rengui to accept Lihua and they got into an argument. Dingshan’s sister, Jinlian heard that Lihua insisted on marrying her brother is because she is fated to do so, so she went to tell Lihua that their horoscopes clashes and besides, Dingshan likes Jinding. Lihua went to look for Jinding and asked her if she plans to marry Dingshan but Jinding said that she has never thought of that matter, and could not decide if she likes him or not.

    Eps 5

    Yaojin begged Lihua to teach him sorcery, and Lihua wanted him to help her with the Xue family. Yaojin again tried to persuade Rengui to think of the bigger picture, as Lihua would be a great help to Tang if she becomes his daughter-in-law. Jinhua suggested that they quickly find a bride for Dingshan before more problems arise and Dingshan was ecstatic when he found out that they were considering Jinding. Jinding was surprised to find the engagement gifts when she returned home. Master Chen told her he will respect her decision, and has told the Xue family they will give their reply 2 days later. Jinding felt that she is no longer that familiar with Dingshan although they grew up together and told Dingshan she needed more time to consider. However, Dingshan thought that Lihua had been sowing discord and went to look for her.

    There were reports of haunting in the town and everyone was afraid. Rengui was concerned that the Emperor Li Shimin would be frightened when he arrives on his anonymous visit so Dingshan volunteered to get to the bottom of things. Lihua also helped Diangshan to investigate on her own accord and found that the haunting was actually caused by a wealthy man, Xue Yinglong, who was testing his inventions. Yinglong was captured but his servant, Uncle Fu managed to find a scapegoat and he was released from jail. Yinglong finds Lihua interesting and ordered Uncle Fu to find out her background. Yaojin recommended 5 talented men to Lihua, hoping that she will give Dingshan up but to no avail. To welcome the Emperor Shimin and his uncle Li Daozong, Rengui ordered the streets to be cleaned up.

    Yihu was guarding the pass and he tried to search the bodies of Shimin and Daozong, who were traveling incognito and luckily Rengui arrived in time to avoid the Emperor being offended. Rengui and Daozong got into an argument over state affairs but Shimin has no mood to think about such matters as he is more concerned about getting rid of Daozong so that he can have fun in the town.

    Yinglong challenged Lihua to see who can make the first customer to walk into the brothel cry and it turns out the first person they saw was Shimin. Yinglong’s trick was not able to make Shimin cry so Lihua used socery and won. Just then, Daozong and the rest arrived and Lihua and Yinglong realized the man they had just made fun of is the Emperor. Lihua and Yinglong was captured and Dingshan was also taken in for not being able to protect the Emperor.


    Eps 6


    Daozong has all along been at odds with the Xue family and took the opportunity to ask Shimin to execute the Xue family, claiming that since Dingshan and Lihua are acquainted, the Xue family must be betraying Tang. At the same time, he recommended his own son to replace Rengui as Commander of the Pass. Yaojin explained that the Xue family is loyal to Tang, and Lihua came to Tang because she admired Dingshan and wanted to marry him. He also pointed out that Lihua would be a great help to the Tang army. Shimin agreed to test Lihua’s socery to see if her skills could indeed help the army. Yaojin told Lihua to demonstrate her abilities, saying that if the Emperor is pleased, he may even agree to her marrying Dingshan. Daozong sent his warrior to fight Lihua’s sorcery but lost. Shimin was impressed and told her he will agree to all her requests.

    Shimin appointed Dingshan as 2nd in Command and arranged for him to marry Lihua. Dingshan was disappointed. Uncle Fu begged Lihua to save Yinglong. After Yinglong was released, he brought gifts for Lihua and asked for her hand but was rejected. Yinglong challenged Lihua again, saying that if he loses, he will call her ‘Mother’ but if she loses, she will have to marry him. Yinglong lost the challenge and willingly called her ‘Mother’. Dingshan was depressed and went to look for Xiantong for a drink. Xiantong went to look for Lihua and told her to leave Dingshan but they got into an argument and fought. Xiantong was injured, which made Dingshan detest Lihua even more. Yaojin was tasked to go to Hanjian Pass to inform Fan Hong of the marriage between Dingshan and Lihua, as well as advise them to surrender to Tang. A furious Fan Hong chased him away.

    Lihua wrote a letter home but her sister-in-law destroyed the letter. Upon hearing Lihua’s impending marriage, Yang Fan had other plans. Lihua finally received the gifts from Fan Hong, signifying his blessing and was touched. On her wedding day, Yinglong came to make trouble and kept calling Lihua ‘Mother’. Rengui was displeased. Dingshan tried to take the opportunity to call off the wedding but Yaojin guaranteed that there is nothing between Lihua and Yinglong. Dingshan forced Xiantong and the rest to play Mahjong with him, and Lihua was alone waiting in the nuptial chamber. Lihua could not tolerate being cast aside and went to look for Yinglong in anger. She later found out from Uncle Fu the reason for Yinglong’s behavior.

    Eps 7

    Lihua went to the brothel to find a drunk Yinglong and forced him up a boat to look for his mother. When Yinglong woke up, it was too late to return. Xiantong followed Lihua, and the Xue family thought Lihua was eloping with Yinglong. Dingshan wanted to take the chance to divorce her. Yaojin does not believe that Lihua will run away and instead berated Dingshan for ignoring her. Rengui also disapprove of Dingshan divorcing his wife without any proof. To find evidence of Lihua’s adultery, Xiantong dragged Dingshan to Yinglong’s home but they accidentally activated a trap and were caught. Lihua celebrated Yinglong’s birthday with him and he was touched.

    Jinhua was worried when Dingshan and Xiantong disappeared and was relieved when Jinlian read their fortunes and assure Jinhua of their safety. Yinglong saw his mother from a distance and found that he has remarried and leading a happy life. He finally let down his burden and returned home. Uncle Fu found the trapped Xiantong and Dingshan but was unable to release them. Luckily Yinglong returned to release them but once Dingshan saw Lihua with Yinglong, he accused them of adultery and wanted to divorce her. Yaojin found a midwife who did a check up for Lihua and testified that she is still chaste but Dingshan refused to admit his mistake. Yinglong tricked Dingshan to give him a taste of being framed, which angered Dingshan.

    Yaojin took Dingshan to look for Yinglong’s mother and told him to put his country and family first, and not let Lihua complain to the Emperor. Dingshan went to ask for Lihua’s forgiveness. Jinhua planned to tire Lihua out by asking her to do the housework and cook. Lihua made her specialty ‘roasted lamb’ for dinner but no one complimented about the food. To make Lihua into an acceptable wife, Yaojin decided to let her learn how to cook. Yinglong suggested copying the recipes and following them. Lihua cooked Dingshan’s favorite dish but Xiantong thought she had poisoned the food, thus Dingshan spilled the food.


    Eps 8

    Dingshan insisted that Lihua was trying to poison the family but luckily Yaojin arrived in time to explain. Lihua left the Xue family in a huff and Yaojin went after her and advised her. Fan Wu’s birthday is coming so Lihua went to pick colored stones to make his birthday present and Yinglong helped her deliver the present. Yihu deliberately made things difficult for Yinglong when he tried to leave the pass and destroyed the straw man, which Yinglong need so that Fan Wu will know who he is. As Fan Wu misses his sister, he planned to disguise himself as a Han so that he can visit her at Yumen Pass. He was anxious when he saw the straw man in Yinglong’s hand and Yinglong realized that the man is Fan Wu.

    Yinglong used his invention, the ‘flying hat’ to enable Fan Wu to enter the town but he accidentally lost the straw man in the process. While searching for the straw man, he offended Jinlian, and Rengui was notified. Fan Wu was taken to the camp for questioning. Lihua pleaded on Fan Wu’s behalf and Rengui allowed Fan Wu to be reunited with Lihua. Fan Wu tried to find Jinlian to explain but ended up frightening her instead. Lihua arranged for Fan Wu to stay at Yinglong’s place foe the time being. Lihua followed the Xue family to pay their respects to their ancestors and Jinhua ordered her to look after the longevity lamp but Fan Wu accidentally extinguished it. Rengui decided to punish Lihua.

    Fan Wu knows that he had made a blunder and planned to leave Yumen Pass when he was found by Yihu, who humiliated him in public. Yihu made remarks about the enmity between Han and Xiliang and Fan Wu was surrounded and attacked by the people. Jinlian found out that Fan Wu is missing and no one knows if he is dead or alive so she decided to tell the truth. Dingshan decided to help Lihua find Fan Wu. Lihua saw Dingshan saving Fan Wu without a thought for his own safety, and gently helping him clean his wounds and changed her impression of Dingshan. Lihua followed Dingshan to a teahouse and met a village lady. Lihua felt a sense of happiness when the lady addressed her as Mrs Xue. Jinding returned from her trip and upon seeing Dingshan and Lihua, turned around and walked off. An anxious Dingshan rushed forward to explain but Master Chen refused to let him into the house.

    Eps 9

    Jinding planned to accept Dingshan’s proposal when she returns but Dingshan had married. Master Chen consoled her. Dingshan locked himself in the room when he reached home. To make Dingshan happy, Lihua asked Yinglong to teach her how to make shoes. Xiantong asked Jinding out and realized that she is interested in Dingshan. After reading their fortunes, Jinlian is sure that Dingshan and Jinding are fated to marry. Jinhua went to persuade Master Chen to allow Jinding to become Dingshan’s concubine. Dingshan explained to Jinding the circumstances behind him marrying Lihua and assured her that his heart is still with her.

    Lihua worked through the night to make a pair of shoes for Dingshan but Jinhua made her go with Xiantong to the temple to pray and Lihua had no choice but to hand the shoes to Jinhua. Yinglong was shocked to hear that Dingshan will be getting a concubine. Master Chen was worried when he sees that Jinding now has a mind of her own, and Jinding pointed out that experiences has made her grown up. After praying with Xiantong, Lihua cast a spell to make the incense finish burning so that they can leave. On the way, she saw Yinglong, who was on his way to look for her to tell her about Dingshan getting a concubine. Dingshan was ecstatic that he will be marrying Jinding soon but Lihua returned unexpectedly and objected to the marriage. Rengui used his position as the head of the household to force Lihua to agree and Lihua left the Xue family in anger.

    Yaojin suddenly arrived with an imperial edict, asking Rengui and Dingshan to go to the palace immediately. It turns out that the Huiyi envoy arrived with a warrior to show off, and Shimin wants Rengui and Dingshan to spar with the warrior. Unfortunately, they came under the warrior’s spell and father and son began fighting each other instead. Shimin had no choice but to agree to give 2 towns to Huiyi as gifts. Yaojin suggested that Rengui use Lihua to fight the warrior so redeem Tang’s standing. Dingshan had not choice but to beg Lihua to return home. Lihua wants Dingshan to promise not to marry Jinding before she will fight.


    Eps 10

    Lihua emerged victorious in the duel and not only did she help Tang regain its standing, she also asked for 14 towns as gifts from Huiyi. Shimin was overjoyed and kept complimenting her. Lihua wants Shimin to order Dingshan not to marry Jinding. Master Chen returned the betrothal gifts and Jinhua was disappointed. Jinding could understand why Lihua would not let her marry Dingshan and consoled him instead. Lihua accidentally tore Dingshan’s handkerchief and he was furious. She realized that the handkerchief belonged to Jinding. Dingshan and Jinding were having their meal in a restaurant when they bumped into Lihua, Fan Wu and Yinglong. Dingshan and Yinglong started arguing and got into a fight.

    Dingshan had an argument with Lihua again when they reached home. Rengui scolded Dingshan while Jinhua advised him to be low key when meeting Jinding. Fan Wu wanted to get back at them for Lihua but accidentally consumed Yinglong’s ‘smelly pill’. Yinglong found out that Xiantong has been secretly looking for people to help lighten the scar on her face and thus bribed a village lady to make fun of her. Xiantong drowned her sorrows in wine after being made fun of and Lihua realized that she is actually very conscious of her scar. Xiantong’s face became red and swollen and went to look for Yinglong at Black Wind Hill but saw Lihua instead.

    Yihu rushed to Black Wind hill to see Xiantong’s face being bitten by a weird insect and thought that Lihua is harming his sister. Xiantong became unconscious and Yihu wants Rengui to look into the matter. Lihua told them that the insect can help with the scar on Xiantong’s face and she will only be unconscious for a while but no one believed her. Rengui decided to imprison Lihua according to army regulations. Huiyi suddenly attacked Tang and Rengui led his troops to battle. However, they were attacked by Huiyi’s sorcery and returned in defeat. Yaojin, on behalf of Shimin, ordered Lihua to take over the 2nd Commander and lead the troops to battle. Dingshan had no choice but to apologize to Lihua and asked her for help again. At the battlefield, Lihua saw Dingshan, who was under a spell, being lured to a hit and followed him. They entered into a illusion and Lihua saw that the ring on her finger behaving weirdly.

    Eps 11

    With the ring guiding her, she managed to find and save Dingshan and together, they managed to fight off the Huiyi army. Huiyi had to beg Tang for peace. Although Dingshan and Lihua gained victory, Rengui still berated Dingshan for going against orders. Luckily Lihua pleaded on his behalf. Yihu was about to pursue the matter of his sister when he heard her scream. It turns out that the scar on Xiantong’s face has peeled off and Lihua was finally vindicated. Xiantong was grateful to Lihua for helping her regain her looks and not only did they clear their misunderstandings, but she wanted to become sworn sisters with Lihua.

    The Fan family were worried that Lihua would help Tang attack Xiliang, so Fan Hong was considering making peace with Tang but Fan Wei objected. It turns out that Fan Wei and Yang Fan had been secretly discussing joining forces with other tribes in Fan Hong’s name and collaborating to attack Tang. However, not all the tribe leaders has agreed so Fan Wei decided to pressurize them. Yang Fan knows that the relation between Fan Wei and his wife Ah Zi is not good, so he pretended to give advice. Lihua was appointed to teach in the army. Xiantong thought that this arrangement will affect the development of Lihua’s relationship with Dingshan but Lihua does not think so. Lihua saw that Dingshan is only in charge of the stores and asked Rengui to give him more opportunities. For the sake of her son’s future, Jinhua also sided with Lihua but Rengui transferred Dingshan to the kitchen instead. Dingshan was upset with Lihua over this matter while Xiantong taught Lihua how to handle Dingshan.

    Lihua apologized to Dingshan and managed to get him to bring her for an outing. She consoled him during the outing. Dingshan realized that he is beginning to change him impression of Lihua but kept telling himself that he only loves Jinding, so he decided to avoid Lihua. Dingshan went on an outing with Jinding and they had an accident. In his haste, Dingshan held Jinding in his arms and their hearts went fluttering. Jinlian secretly went to the night market to set up a fortune telling stall and was discovered by Yinglong, use used the information to blackmail her. Jinlian’s reaction towards Yinglong aroused the curiosity of Rengui. For her client’s sake, Jinlian continued with her stall and was finally found out by Rengui.


    Eps 12

    Rengui was unhappy with Jinlian for setting up a stall and everyone tried to plead on her behalf. Lihua tried to speak up f or her but Jinlian did not appreciate it. Rengui decided to punish Jinlian by telling her to copy out Sun Tzu’s Art of War. On seeing Rengui being troubled over their daughter, Jinhua suggested finding a husband for Jinlian. Jinlian found Yinglong setting up a fortune telling stall at the same spot where her stall used to be and confronted him. Yinglong poked fun at Yihu and bet with him that he will be able to woo Jinlian successfully. Jinlian was forced to a matchmaking session but Yinglong went to create trouble and she thanked him instead. Jinding heard that Dingshan has changed his impression of Lihua and her expression changed. Jinlian read her own fortune and was troubled to see that her marriage is impending.

    Yinglong kept catching the attention of Jinlian, thinking up tricks to make her happy and creating a romantic picnic and Jinlian was enjoying herself. Dingshan was exasperated working in the kitchen and was waving the chopper around to vent his frustrations when he almost accidentally hurt Rengui. Lihua went to look for Rengui to talk about Dingshan’s future and was instead berated by Rengui for being a busybody. Jinding went out with Dingshan and pretended to sprain her ankle and told Dingshan to carry her home. Master Chen advised her to give up the futile relationship but Jinding insisted that status is not important to her and she will continue to see Dingshan.

    Lihua found out from Yaojin the reason Rengui was wary of Dingshan and decided to think of a way to resolve the problem. Rengui had a nightmare and decided to return to camp early. On the way, he and Dingshan met 2 enemy soldiers. Dingshan suddenly drew his bow and arrow and Rengui thought of his dream. Dingshan killed the soldiers instead and Rengui was relieved. They did not know that this is part of Lihua’s plan. Dingshan was finally transferred to another position and he excitedly told Lihua the news and thanked her for her help. Lihua asked Rengui for a drink at the teahouse and brought him to the market to see how fortune tellers help to solve the problems of the people. Rengui finally allowed Jinlian to continue with her stall. Jinlian was overjoyed and grateful to Lihua.

    Eps 13

    Jinding went to see Yang Fan to tell him what the Xue family has been doing. In actual fact, they are siblings and to take revenge for their family, Yang Fan decided to let Jinding and gave her a secret letter. On her way back, Jinding knocked into Fan Wu and dropped the letter. Fan Wu kindly picked up the letter for her. Fan Hong received news that the old Tribe leader had passed on and wondered about it. Yinglong helped Jinlian look for fortune telling books and created a romantic ambience for her to make her happy. Yihu felt that he was using underhand methods.

    Fan Wu told Lihua that Jinding is a Xiliang girl but Jinding denied it. Dingshan happened to walk past and helped Jinding but Fan Wu was unhappy. Jinlian was troubled by matters of the heart and wanted to talk to Lihua about it but could not make herself do so. To investigate Jinding’s real identity, Fan Wu trailed her but Jinding lured him into an alley before shouting molest. Fan Wu was brought to court and his statements contradict Jinding’s. Rengui decided to banish him. Before he left, Fan Wu reminded Lihua to be careful of Jinding. Fan Hong felt that there is more to it than meet the eye about the old tribe leader’s death and asked Fan Wei if he had seen the old tribe leader. Ah Zi told Yang Fan about Fan Hong’s decision to take back control of the military and Yang Fan told her to get rid of Fan Hong.

    Dingshan was going to buy some presents to please Lihua and Jinding found out about it. Yinglong pretended to be seriously injured by a horse carriage and Jinlian cried. The onlookers kept telling her to reveal her feelings but she revealed Yinglong’s trick instead, as she has known about the bet. Lihua saw that the necklace Jinding wore is exactly the same as the one DIngshan bought her and returned the necklace in a fit of anger, and wanting to go home. On the pretext of inspecting the soldiers, Shimin suddenly went to the Xue’s army camp with Daozong. Daozong heard that Lihua and Dingshan were not on good terms and tried to create trouble. Luckily Lihua returned in tune and lied to help the Xue family.


    Eps 14

    Shimin tried to test the relationship between Dingshan and Lihua and luckily Lihua managed to cover up well. Using the rain as an excuse, Shimin forced Dingshan and Lihua to spend the night at his place. Lihua noticed Daozong peeping outside their door and pretended to be a loving couple with Dingshan. However, they accidentally knocked into each other and kissed and the two sprang away from each other in shock. However, they kept thinking about the kiss. Xiantong pressed Lihua about the details of the overnight stay and is convinced that she has fallen in love with Dingshan.

    Shimin complimented Lihua on improving the army but Lihua said that the improvement is due to the Xue family and Yaojin and Shimin was further impressed with her. After Shimin returned to the capital, Dingshan and Lihua both started liking each other. Jinlian found out about her brother’s feelings and advised him to come to an early decision. Lihua admitted that she has fallen for Dingshan, and Dingshan felt likewise, so he decided to break off with Jinding. Jinding knew the reason for Dingshan’s visit and before he can say anything, she started crying and telling him the reason why she bought an identical necklace as Lihua’s. She held on to Dingshan tightly, refusing to let go. Lihua knew that Dingshan could not bear to talk to Jinding about the break and she returned the necklace to him.

    After Jinlian used Yihu to irritate Yinglong, she told Yihu that she will never love him. Yihu drowned his sorrows in drinks and Yinglong realized that his prank had gone too far when he was beaten up. Jinlian thought that Yinglong had met with some mishap and was worried. When Yinglong found out about her feelings for him, he started pestering her and Yihu fought with him when he found out. Yinglong went to look for Lihua to help in his relationship woes and Xiantong told them Yihu’s intention. Fan Hong was getting weak and fainted in front of Fan Wu. Fan Wei advised Fan Hong to take care of his health and leave the military matters to him. Xiantong helped Dingshan pass a break up letter to Jinding, and advised her not to destroy Lihua and Dingshan’s relationship. Jinding saw through Xiantong’s feelings for Dingshan.

    Xiantong helped Lihua and Dingshan mend their relationship. Dingshan was willing to accompany Lihua back to Xiliang to visit her father and promised her that he will iron things out with Jinding and Lihua was blissful. Yang Fan told Jinding to sow discord among the Xue family and to destroy Lihua and Dingshan’s marriage. For Jinlian’s sake, Yihu asked Yinglong out and told him about Jinlian’s likes and dislikes. Yinglong finally got Jinlian to forgive him with his sincerity.

    Yihu went to drink at the brothel and was shocked to find his token missing and a dead prostitute lying next to him when he work up. An eyewitness Xiaolan claimed that Yihu killed the prostitute when he was drunk. Rengui was pressurized by Shimin to prove Yihu’s innocence within 2 days, or Yihu shall be executed. Lihua, Xiantong and the rest tried to help Yihu find evidence to clear his name but were without success. Xiantong decided to help her brother break out of jail and Lihua and Dingshan helped her secretly. Taking the opportunity of the trouble brewing in Xue family, Yang Fan used Fan Wei’s name to invite the leaders of the 5 tribes to discuss attacking Tang.

    Yang Fan exposed Fan Wei as the murderer of the old Tribe leader in front of the 5 tribe leaders and gained control of Fan’s army from the confused Fan Hong. Fan Wu happened to find out that Ah Zi was meeting Yang Fan. As the tribes were gathering their troops, Daozong suggested leading an army to confront them but Lihua offered to return to Xiliang for talks. Rengui agreed with her and gave her the Xue family’s token. Dingshan was stopped by the soldiers from entering the Pass when he accompanied Lihua back to Xiliang. Lihua asked Dingshan to look for Fan Wei.

    Lihua returned home to find a seriously ill Fan Hong, and learned from Yang Fan what happened to Fan Wei. Dingshan went to look for Fan Wei and was captured by his men. Fan Wei berated himself for listening to Yang Fan. The tribe leaders were doubtful of Yang Fan’s capabilities so he showed off his prowess. Lihua found out that Fan Hong was poisoned and decided to ask the HM for help but was ambushed by Yang Fan’s men on her way.


    Eps 16

    Lihua used sorcery to escape with Fan Wu, and managed to send Fan Hong to the HM for treatment. Daozong brought the Prince of Pingnan, Marshal Li to Yumen Pass. They found out that someone tried to sneak in to poison the water supply and using this, as well as the case regarding Yihu and Xiantong as an excuse, to express doubts in Rengui’s ability. Dingshan and Fan Wei were ambushed while on their way back to the Fan residence and luckily Xiantong and Yihu appeared in time to help. They also found out from Yang Fan’s man that the tribe leaders are planning to attack Tang. Xiantong and Yihu risked their lives to convey the news to Rengui.

    Fan Wei blamed himself for Fan Hong’s poisoning and Lihua and Fan Wu consoled him. Lihua was worried about the situation and Dingshan reassured her that he will be by her side to face any problems. Fan Hong finally regained consciousness and was told of Yang Fan’s evil plot. Before they left, the HM pointed out that Lihua has used up her magic beans, and gave a magic arrow to Dingshan. Under Dingshan and Lihua’s protection, Fan Hong managed to stop the tribe leaders from attacking and exposed Yang Fan’s ploy. Yang Fan was pushed to a corner and jumped off a cliff. Daozong wants Rengui to send his troops out. Luckily Fan Wu arrived in time to tell them that the uprising in Xiliang has been settled. Fan Hong punished Fan Wei for the old tribe leader’s death.

    Fan Hong set up a make-up feast for Lihua’s wedding. In accordance to Xiliang’s tradition, Dingshan went up the hills and killed a tiger. He presented the tiger skin to Fan Hong and was accepted by him. Fan Hong also agreed to make peace with Tang. Dingshan followed his father home first and Lihua wanted him to promise to think of her every night, and not to meet Jinding. Jinlian pointed out some loopholes regarding Yihu’s case, so Yinglong went to the brothel to announce that Yihu has been executed. Xiaolan thought she saw Yihu’s ghost and spilled the beans and Yihu finally cleared his name. To avenge her brother, Jinding tricked Dingshan into meeting her and made him drunk. When Dingshan woke up, he thought that he had been intimate with Jinding and was shocked.

    Eps 17

    Dingshan blamed himself for being drunk and Jinding advised him to return home first. However, Master Chen witnessed Dingshan leaving Jinding’s room with his clothes in disarray. Master Chen demanded to know what Rengui is going to do with Jinding, so Jinhua promised that they will treat her well. Lihua, who just returned from Xiliang, overheard and dashed out. Dingshan went to look for Lihua in the rain but she refused to see him. Jinhua, Jinding and Yaojin advised him to return home. After listening to what Yaojin said, Lihua had no choice but to let Dingshan marry Jinding for the sake of the Xue family and Dingshan.

    Although Jinding was married into the Xue family in glory, she was still upset as there were gossips among the people. Dingshan felt that he had let Lihua down and went to look for her in his wedding night. Lihua asked him to return to the nuptial chamber bur he was reluctant to. Dingshan asked Yinglong to help seek Lihua’s forgiveness and Yinglong taught him to touch Lihua with his sincerity and patience. Jinhua kept praising Jinding and Lihua was peeved. After seeing Dingshan’s gift and letter, Lihua was about to forgive him when she saw him entering Jinding’s room and felt a stab of jealousy. After falling off the cliff, Yang Fan was rescued by Master Feng Lei, who agreed to teach him sorcery if Yang Fan will kill Lihua and Dingshan to avenge his disciple’s death.

    Jinlian told Jinhua that she is in love with Yinglong, so Jinhua tried to find out Rengui’s opinion of Yinglong. Rengui commented that Yinglong does nothing all day, and that he just saw him going into the brothel. Jinlian was piqued when she heard this. Rengui finally found out that Jinlian and Yinglong are in love. To make Rengui accept him, Yinglong decided to join the Xue army. Rengui again dreamt that he was injured by Dingshan and Jinhua felt restless, so Dingshan told the truth about Rengui’s dream becoming true. Rengui received a secret letter and found out that Dingshan and Lihua lied to him so he punished them by making them kneel in front of the ancestral tablets. Jinding fainted when she sent food to them and was diagnosed to be pregnant.


    Eps 18
    On Yinglong’s first day at the army, Lihua was happy for him that he is taking the first step in being accepted by Rengui, but was feeling unhappy for herself. To be on good relations with Jinding, Lihua decided to personally brew a Xiliang tonic for pregnancy for Jinding but Jinding felt unwell after drinking the tonic. When Jinhua found out that Jinding lost that baby, she blamed Lihua. Lihua’s explanations were not accepted and she returned to Xiliang in anger. To avenge Lihua, Yinglong was punished when he offended Dingshan, his superior in the army. Lihua pretended to be happy when she was home but Fan Wu was able to see through her pretensions.

    Feng Lei imparted his internal strength to Yang Fan so that he can learn the mesmerizing spell and told him to use the spell carefully. After Yang Fan left, he contacted his man Su Bang and Jinding. To take revenge, he had no qualms on using the spell on Jinding. Fan Hong finally found out about Lihua’s grievances when Yinglong went to visit her. Dingshan misses Lihua and could not decide if he should believe her. Jinlian consoled him. Rengui again dreamt that he was killed by Dingshan and subconsciously tried to avoid Dingshan. Fan Hong arranged to meet Rengui, hoping to seek redress for Lihua and gave Dingshan 3 days to pacify her. Dingshan was about to go to Xiliang to seek Lihua’s forgiveness when Jinding made him accompany her to the capital to pay respects to her ancestors.

    Lihua was disappointed that Dingshan had not arrived and went to look for the HM, who consoled her. She also revealed that Dingshan and Rengui will soon settle the differences made in their past lives and Dingshan will bear the name of killing his own father. Lihua was stunned. Yang Fan suddenly attacked the Xue army and lured Rengui and his men up Tiger Moutain. Rengui’s men were looking for Yang Fan on the mountain but Dingshan was forbidden to follow. Lihua rushed to Tiger Mountain and advised Rengui to leave but without avail. Lihua and Rengui accidentally ventured into Yang Fan’s illusion and both thought the other was Yang Fan and fought. Dingshan arrived and saw Lihua injuring Rengui.

    Eps 19

    Dingshan refused to listen to Lihua’s explanation and stabbed her in the chest. He denounced his relationship with her and left with Rengui and his men. Yang Fan found out that Lihua had spoiled his plan and wanted to cast a spell again but was shocked when he found that his hands had hardened. Everyone was worried when Rengui vomited blood and remained unconscious. Lihua fainted from her injuries on her way back and was rescued home. Fan Hong and the rest were shocked to learn that Yang Fan is still alive. Lihua stopped Fan Wei from looking for Yang Fan to settle scores and decided to seek help from the HM. Yang Fan cast a spell on Jinding and commanded her to kill Rengui.

    Yang Fan demanded to know from Feng Lei why his hands had hardened and realized he had been made use of and thus killed Feng Lei in anger. Jinding tried to assassinate Rengui but Dingshan appeared in time to stop her. However, he suspected that Lihua is the one who cast a spell on Jinding. Xiantong followed Jinhua and Jinding to pray at the temple and saw a restless Jinding and decided to trail her. Xiantong told Dingshan her suspicions and decided to lure Jinding out with a message written in the Xiliang language. Jinding fell into the trap and admitted that she was controlled by Yang Fan. Dingshan realized that he had been tricked into injuring Lihua and chased Jinding away in anger. Using Rengui’s injury as an excuse, Daozong prepared to take over the military at Yumen Pass. Just then, Rengui regained consciousness and revealed the reason why Lihua was at Tiger Mountain.

    Dingshan passed by a lake while on his way to find Lihua and he jumped into the water, hoping to find the bangle Lihua’s late mother lost in the lake but was without success. Jinding poisoned the dishes, hoping to die together with her brother but unfortunately was killed by him instead. When Lihua arrived, it was too late to save Jinding. Jinding told her to take care of Dingshan before she died. Lihua’s skills were below Yang Fan’s and fell into his spell. She tried to assassinate Shimin and was stopped by Dingshan. Their rings again showed its powers. After her failed assassination attempt, Lihua escaped and Daozong imprisoned Rengui and his family.


    Eps 20

    As Dingshan was going after Lihua, he did not know that he has become a convict but luckily Yinglong stopped him in time from returning to Yumen Pass. Dingshan went to look for the HM and begged her to save Lihua but she only gave him a pill for his injuries and said that only he can make Lihua remember their happy past. Lihua went after Dingshan like a mad woman upon seeing him. Dingshan was surprised that his strength has increased greatly when he accidentally injured her in his haste. Dingshan brought Lihua to see the HM, hoping to lift the spell but the HM was unable to help.

    It turns out that the HM had already passed on, but her spirit remained, with the sole purpose of fulfilling Dingshan and Lihua’s destiny, and she has put her life’s power into the pill that she gave Dingshan. After explaining this to Dingshan, she departed from the world. Dingshan took Lihua out, but she could only remember his bad points, so he had no choice but to tie her up and bring her back. After tricking Dingshan into removing her binds, Lihua tried to kill him again. Yang Fan was ecstatic to see that Lihua had killed Dingshan and revealed himself. However, this is actually a trap set up by Lihua and Dingshan and while trying to use his skills, Yang Fan became mad and turned into a pile of ashes instead.

    Dingshan and the rest rushed to the execution grounds to stop Shimin from executing Rengui. Unexpectedly, Yang Fan’s vengeful spirit went into Daozong’s body, who tried to kill Shimin and Yinglong shielded Shimin. Lihua and Dingshan gave chase to Yang Fan’s spirit to a forest. Dingshan suddenly saw 2 Lihua standing in front of him and did not know what to do. The real Lihua thought of hurting herself and her ring and Dingshan’s became one and the power from the rings destroyed Yang Fan’s spirit. Shimin rewarded them and Lihua asked to return to Xiliang. Rengui and Xiantong went personally to Fan’s residence to ask Lihua to return to Yumen pass but without success. To seek Lihua’s forgiveness, Dingshan managed to find Lihua’s late mother’s bangle after much difficulty but Lihua wanted to test if they are really fated to be together.
