[Eng] Black Lighthouse Ep 1 & 2


Synopsis: Due to a mysterious reason, Qiao Nuo’s intelligent twin sister asks her to go and intern at her place at the city court at Jia Nan. As she struggles through the internship due to her lack of knowledge of the work it entails, she witnesses the intense confrontations between prosecutors and defense lawyers with her own eyes and starts to develop an appreciation for this profession. Whilst working to find clues to help the cases, accumulating work experience, and gaining the support of a good mentor, she finds true friends, love and the career she wishes to pursue and the qualities and skills she never realized she had.

Commentary from the subber: There’s quite a lot of legal jargon in this drama and I’m doing my best to make it sound as authentic as possible. If there are any lawyers/barristers watching this, please excuse me for any mistakes I may have made because I don’t work in the legal profession so I had to work things out through researching about court trials and the profession. I would appreciate it if you could point out anything that may have a better term. Also another thing is, in the 1st episode I think I may have made a mistake in the university Qiao Nuo the FL graduated from, she just graduated from the normal university, there is no indication of what subject she was studying, instead of law.


  1. Biscuit: The last 2 characters of Methamphetamine sounds like the chinese word for biscuit/cookie (if you’re from the US)
  2. PRC: People’s Republic of China
  3. Younger brother: Doesn’t mean biological brother in this case, just younger male relative
  4. Dog blood: Chinese slang that means absurd/exaggerated cliche
