Please do not reupload my videos! That will be much appreciated!

Synopsis: Set in the time of the Yi, Humans, the Wolf tribe and the Witches lived together on the land of Zhangzhou where the three forces lived in dangerous peace due to the fact that they were all evenly balanced in power.The Female Saint of the Witch (Wuzu) clan, Mi Qi Qi, was sent to the human world by her teacher and accidentally becomes the side consort of the king of Yi Qi tribe/kingdom and becomes embroiled in the conflicts of his harem. The two eventually join hands to subdue the chaos between the three tribes.

Notes: 

  1. 3 wives and concubines or 三妻四妾: This is the term usually used to describe the polygamous marriages of the ancient chinese. Why 3 wives and 4 concubines? There are many different accounts on where it originated. First (according to Baidu) it actually comes from the novel Jing Ping Mei (also a classical chinese smut novel) but then has been popularized. A second account believes that the 3 wives indicate that a man can take one main wife or 2 same level wives (平妻) and the 4 concubines refers to the concubines of more superior status or 良妾, women who also have a marriage certificate and often coming from poorer families than the husband or the legitimate wife and cannot be sold, concubines of noble status or 贵妾 they are just one rank lower than the actual legitimate wives and can vary from the concubine who bore the husband a son, one who is a family member (sister, cousin, niece) of the legitimate wife and again cannot normally be sold, the concubines of inferior status 贱妾 these vary from women who were previous courtesans, entertainers and servants and they are not (normally) allowed to raise their own children and can be sold at the husband or the legitimate wife’s will. Then there are the normal concubines or 平妾 usually includes the rest
  2. Gu/I: Gu or 孤 is usually the term that the crown prince or a king would address himself as. It has the same meaning as Guaren or 寡人 which is also a term that a king would address himself as. Both Gu and Guaren means “alone”. As people who are in that position of power are alone and they are not someone that a normal civilian can have contact with. It’s like a way to remind people of their power and status.
  3. Lu Ao: Although I address him as the king but as you have found out there is also the Emperor of Daying as well who has more power than Lu Ao as Lu Ao is simply the ruler of Yiqi (which I am unsure if it’s just a district/province in Daying or an actual vassal state as the drama never explains it). However his title is 王爷 or prince, however it would be confusing to address Lu Ao as Prince as Lu Che or Prince Ji as he’s also a prince too even though he doesn’t hold any power until he usurps the throne, which is why I’ve addressed Lu Ao as King to distinguish that difference. Besides he calls himself Gu and a normal prince is not allowed to address himself that unless he’s the king of a vassal state.
