  1. Passes through tens of thousands of flowers yet not a petal touches you: This is a term usually used to describe a profligate man who is engaged in love affairs with many women but does not belong to any of them/non of them have a hold on him nor will he give them any promises or hope of a relationship with him. Note that flowers are usually used in chinese to represent women.
  2. The longer the night the more nightmares there are: A chinese idiom that means the longer the delay the more chance the situation can change.
  3. Him/her or he/she: Him and her and he and she are all phonetically the same so it’s hard to distinguish if that person is male or female just by hearing it without any other clues.
  4. I have guarded Cheng Meng pass …pass: the character for pass and button/trap is the same character except if it’s combined with different characters in different contexts it will mean different things.
  5. Beat the bush to alert the snake: a chinese idiom that describes that if you don’t have a foolproof plan then doing anything will likely alert your enemy and you will lose your chance to seize them.

  1. I found the general’s face familiar but was unable to recall where I saw him – he played Grunt in Go Go Squid. 😀 Nice change!


  2. Thank you for the subs!!

    I really like this show!! It’s lighthearted but not too silly. And the MC isn’t annoying and “oh-so-quirky”. She has her own charm thats not over the top. In that way, none of the characters are super dynamic or outstanding, but it’s very easy to watch. And interesting to the point that I want to see more.
