Comment: It was a great wuxia except for the expected ending but it’s expected since this seires is focused on monks and monks are not allowed to date. Couldn’t resist watching this series due to my favorite casts: Amy Kwok, Gigi Lai, Noel Leung, and Deric Wan. I would rate this series 4.5 out of 5. But if you’re not a fan of Buddhist series or not a fan of family drama mixed with martial arts then stay away!
