Color of Night (aka Siege in Fog) Ep 4 Eng subbed

Synopsis: To the world, Yi Lian Kai is a rich playboy who cares very little about his filial responsibilities, compared to his talented elder brothers who falls in love with the daughter of a military officer who has fallen out of favor. Qin Sang, on the other hand is his unwilling bride who he used every means possible to marry, despite the fact that she still harbors feelings for her crush who disappears without a word. In the beginning of this coerced marriage, she rejects all his advances and gestures of love, but they slowly develop a stable partnership through the chaos from the constant battles for land and power between the different warlords. Things get complicated when Qin Sang’s old lover returns under a new identity and becomes her husband’s subordinate. Adapted from the novel Siege in Fog by Fei Wo Si Cun.

Ep 4 recap: Yi Lian Kai and Yi Lian Shen both receive news of their father’s attempted assassination but in order for Yi Lian Kai and Qin Sang to return to Fu Yuan where his father resides, they must cross over Li Chong Nian’s their enemies’ territory. Yi Lian Kai knows that the route back via a train would not work but as the old chinese saying goes the safest place is the most obvious place so he decides to take a risk and ask his friend Min Hong Yu to walk right into General Li’s territory and cross the border under the eye of General Li’s border patrol.  Meanwhile, Yi Lian Shen deals with his disgruntled officers who are vying for power now that they know General Li may be on his deathbed.




  1. The father is so damn cruel. After one of the brothers wins, he wants to sacrifice the other one. How mercenary! How can you even love such a “father” ?

  2. Thanks so much to the subbing team! Enjoyed this episode, and hope to see more of the family dynamics going forward. Thanks again for providing the episode recaps as well-really helpful.


  3. What an intense episode. 2nd mistress is a spiteful bitch. I understand she is grieving but she clearly disliked Qin Sang from the start for her own personal reasons so this incident only intensified her hatred. I hope in this drama she becomes more 3 dimensional and less predictable.

    THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE SUBBING! I’m looking forward to the rest of the drama and will re-read the novel in the meantime.


  4. Thank you for the subs! The 2nd SIL is vengeful. I hope this aggression isn’t dragged too long into the drama.

    Can’t wait for the next episode!


  5. They did well with the costumes they all look expensive lol. The props and sets don’t look shabby either. I am sure Yu Yan isn’t only mad about her father’s death deep down she hates Qin Sang for marrying her beloved Yi Lian Kai too. Not sure why she is so obsessed with him when he doesn’t like her that much? Haha. Anyways, this era really sucks for those who were born into this chaos. I’m glad they changed some things for the drama the novel had too much angst.


  6. Thank you so much!!! What??!! How can Lian Kai and his brother fight each other for the empire!?? That will be so sad…his bro is so cruel trying to kill him??!! QS is like a lost puppy wandering around and a stranger in the Yi household….poor girl….I hope YLK shows her his love….because she prob don’t realized it now…..but she do loves YLK.

    1. Status is almost everything in times of war the more powerful you are the more your life will be spared and the more you’ll gain. Unfortunately, being power hungry is quite common then and now for selfish gains. I’m more disturbed that their father wants them to fight for power and is willing to sacrifice one of them. Qin Sang does love him although she realized too late in the novel I think in the drama it’s more romance oriented so you’ll get some good stuff before having a bittersweet ending.


  7. I wonder if qi sang pregnant later because I thought I saw a scene at the ending theme song where yi lian kai was touching or seems like was touching her stomach.


    1. In the novel, she was pregnant twice but the first time she had an abortion which made Yi Lian Kai pretty furious so he threatened her to not abort the second child. That’s why she kept the second child? Haha.
