Hunan TV - 45 mins - TheTVDB, IMDB
Bai Ping Ting (Angelababy) has lived in a man’s world. A maid for the Marquess of Jing An, she is told that a woman’s virtue is ignorance. But, as someone who lives a better life than most wealthy women and has the wisdom to surpass any man, Bai Ping Ting has never believed in such sayings. Her genius has earned her the nickname “female Zhu Ge,” after the legendary strategist from the Three Kingdoms era. As a woman both so beautiful and intelligent, Bai Ping attracts the attention of the undefeated warrior Chu Bei Jie (Wallace Chung), who falls in love with her at first sight. However, in a time when the Jin, Yan, Liang, and Qin states are all warring, the two lovers are more than just star-crossed; they’re likely fated to kill each other. Not to mention, the two also have more than a few secrets between them. What the general doesn’t know, is that the maid is a genius military strategist who once served He Xia (Sun Yi Zhou), sworn enemy of the undefeated Chu Bei Jie. Before they can open up their hearts, the general and the maid have to contend with the deception and conspiracies that are a requirement for geniuses living in such dangerous times. If they can look past that, Bai Ping Ting and Chu Bei Jie then have to contend with the fact that the world cannot see them together. Can the two find each other and look past the lies, or will the war between their kingdoms, and their minds, consume their love?
