“The scariest in a battlefield is not your enemy but your ally who betrays you.”
-Li Zhi Cheng
This drama started so well. So much excitement in the first 15 minutes, lots of action with men in ARMY uniform. So lovely, men in uniform. 🙂
Anyway, Lin Qian or Qian Qian was at the Yunnan province looking for inspiration and materials for her fashion company. While browsing and haggling, she became a victim of a scammer and human trafficker.
Before she could breathe she was chloroformed and bundled van and deposited nto a hide-out in the mountains.
Concurrently, a group of young soldiers in their camouflage uniform, complete with painted/muddied faces were on their way to ransack the mountain hide-out of these traffickers and drug dealers.
The soldiers engaged in a bloody gunfire with the goons.
The leader of the soldiers was Li Zhi Cheng. He came to the rescue of Qian Qian, who was gagged and tied up.
After so many beautiful almost balletic moves, Zhi Cheng firing an Armalite with one hand and the other holding on to Qian Qian managed to get away with bruises and minor wounds.
After a quick patch up at the hospital and making sure that Qian Qian was okay, Zhi Cheng left with his group.
Qian Qian was still barely conscious when she noticed that the army van was driving off. She was rather perturbed that she did not get the name of her rescuer.
Back to reality and her shop, Qian Qian was anxious because she was not making enough to cover the rent of the shop.
She was also annoyed that the materials provided by their supplier, Wenda, was below par and she was getting complaints from her customers. This was particularly daunting as she runs an online fashion shop.
What she does not know was that Wenda has a new boss.
He was the manly soldier, Zhi Chen, she has been spending a few daydreams about.
Zhi Chen had to retire from the army to take over from his brother who died rather suspiciously.
One dissatisfied customer called Qian Qian because of the colour of the dress ran with the rainwater. This client was particularly annoyed because she was just about to give a musical performance.
Portentously, Qian Qian brought with her a white dress as a replacement but it was too large.
With a pair of scissors, a needle, and thread plus the string from her own corset belt, she presented her client a rather ugly and ill-fitting dress. LOL
Zhi Chen has been slowly taking stock of what he had inherited from his brother. In the middle of this, his workers were on strike. He noticed immediately that there was more to the picket line than meet the eyes. There was someone instigating it.
Then Qian Qian was suddenly in their warehouse, full of woes against Wenda and the materials she received.
An old man, who had just been fired went into the rooftop with his banner, listing his grievance. But he was actually paid by the rivals of Wenda!
This episode is probably sponsored by Christian Dior. It was mentioned a few times and there was also a product placement.
Anyway, Qian Qian brother was worried about her, struggling on with her little company which was losing rather than gaining. He gave her a choice of becoming an assistant designer for Dior or LV or better yet return to the States with him and continue studying.
Qian Qian declined to say that though her company is still barely making money, owning it allows her freedom to do what she wanted.
Let’s Shake It Season 1 & 2 (Chinese Review & Summary)
- Genre: Sci Fi, Fantasy, Adventure, Historical Fiction, Comedy
- Origin: China, Based on Shake It, ET by Zifeng Diuzi
- Date Release: 2017
Abu Cha Cha is a space alien whose business was trafficking primitive life form when their ship was attacked by a phantom black smoke.
The spaceship broke and debris fell into the earth.
Abu Cha Cha quickly realised that the oxygen was too high and she can’t live on Earth as she was.
As luck would have it she witnessed the murder of Tang Qingye from ninja assassins.
Tang Qingye was the second daughter of a general. She was in a romance with the crown prince and they were to announce their intention to marry imminently.
Unfortunately for Tang Qingye, she was a daughter of a concubine and deemed not suitable to become a prince consort.
In connivance with the imperial palace, her stepmother sent her own daughter, the first daughter of the family, to be engaged to the crown prince.
To prevent any obstacle to the marriage and Tang Qingye was poisoned.
Her trusted lady’s maid took her out of the manor, but they were chased by the assassins who ultimately stabbed her to death.
Then came Abu Cha Cha. She tried to heal the poor girl but Tang Qingye’s brother, Tang Qingfeng suddenly appeared. Thinking that Abu Cha Cha was harming his sister, he cut off one of Abu Cha Cha’s cute blue antennae and then stabbed her until her molecules evaporated into thin air.
Tang Qingfeng carried the body of his sister back to the manor and promised to give her a decent burial.
He was thinking things through outside in the garden when one of the slaves shouted that Tang Qingye had risen as a ghost with blue eyes.
Tang Qingfeng immediately knew that she is not really his sister but possessed by an alien.
Nevertheless, he looked after her as there are moments when the new Tang Qingye turns into his sister.
The Crown Prince initially wanted to go to Tang Qingye to protest that the proposed marriage with her sister was none of his doing. But he was waylaid by one of the eunuchs, who told him that if he wanted to get to the throne, he must forget about Tang Qingye. That quickly stopped the crown prince from his tracks.
Tang Qingfeng took his sister to a remote cottage by the mountains and had her guarded.
She is being gossiped as a monster. Tang Qingye was upset that her transponder is broken and can no longer communicate with her species.
In the end, she uses science to experiment with lightning. She ended up charcoal black with frizzy static hair. Her brother is most concerned as he saw her free falling from the balcony into the ground.
Abu Cha Cha was doing everything to make a new transponder.
There was a party at the palace for the Crown Prince and his consort. Tang Qingye went and felt really upset when she touched the crown prince. Abu Cha Cha can’t understand the feeling in her human heart.
Her cat has now metamorphosed into a human. He was upset with Abu Cha Cha because he lost his virginity inside the cattery. 🙂
Abu Cha Cha thought that the Buddha was an alien as well. She went to the temple to investigate and found a transponder.
The crown prince found Abu Cha Cha looking at the transponder and he became a casualty of it when he turned it on. He turned into a baby.
The Tang family were aghast thinking that Tang Qingfeng had fathered a baby.
The palace was also in an uproar as the crown prince was missing.
Fortunately, Abu Cha Cha and the cat were able to reverse the effect of the transponder. The Crown Prince was back to his normal self.
Tang Qingfeng found out that he was not a son of the Tang family and that Qingye is not his sister. Thank goodness for that. I was very surprised when I started this drama because the leads are brother and sister. Eecckkk
Anyway there is someone pretending to be Qing Feng’s double who has been committing atrocities.

It is all about the beads. This drama is about the search for the nine divine beads that could end the chaos that is besetting the world, provided of course that the ultimate finder has a sacred heart.
There are two contenders to the hunt for the beads. One was a chubby, untrustworthy, overly ambitious, but rather an influential monk, who has a very high position in the empire as the state preceptor (Teacher to the king) He advises the king on many issues from mundane to the most important ones.
The second person was another monk who I called the ‘Q’. He was like a mad scientist; excitable, and not averse to animal testing or people testing for that matter, sometimes without the person/victim’s permission. He lives in the basement or dug-out cave at the Family Ye Manor.
The two monks were students of the original keeper of the Nine Sacred Beads but upon his death, before his corpse had cool down, his two most trusted students fought over the beads and the other disciples also joined in a martial art combats, thus most of the beads got lost in the process.
The secret to watching and truly enjoying this wuxia is what you call “Suspension of Disbelief”. 🙂
For starter, cutely feminine Ye Yuan An pretended to be a man. This cute girl is feisty and into mischief and adventure. Of course, she doesn’t look like a man at all, but we’re supposed to believe that everyone in the drama sees her as a young man except for only a few. 🙂
Anyway, a maid who is a sweetheart of one of her servants was going to be executed because she had been found guilty of murdering the star dancer of the Qianduan Brothel despite insufficient evidence and investigation.
Yuan An as a James Bond has her version of ‘Q’, who provides her with new gadgets.
One of this gadgets is the spider on an elastic string that gets her anything the spider attached itself into, may it be an object or a person.
With this gadget, Yuan An sneaked into the prison and rescued the servant girl.
They did escape very narrowly.
Yuan An arranged for the servant girl and her lover to leave and hide somewhere else. They were to be taken by boat when Yuan An realised that the boatman was the police.
Yuan An begged the police to give her three days to bring the real culprit to account for the death of the star dancer.
Yuan An joined forces with the chief constable of the police, Lan Zhi. While they were on their investigations, they come across a ‘ghost’/slave trade market. One of the slaves on sale was a feral man who was good at riding horses, running, jumping and flying but he does not talk.
Yuan An realised that she met him a few days ago when he helped stopped her runaway horse.
She felt pity for how they were treating him that she decided to buy him herself.
As soon as he was unchained, he went absolutely wild and run-off.
The police found out that the brothel is the hub of opium trafficking.
After a good scrubbing, the wild man looked different, he was actually innocently handsome. Yuan An later gave him a name of Mu Le because of his love of woods and forest.
There was a sort of Titanic scene where the ship capsized.
The ship was actually the floating Qiunduan brothel which doubles up as an opium den. The people on board, including Yuan An, Mu Le and Lan Zhi had to swim with all their might in a waist-deep (Knee Deep) water. LOL
Mu Le had become so protective of Yuan An that he was preventing her to endanger herself while rescuing Lan Zhi.
She learned then that Mu Le can actually talk.
Anyway, after their investigation, they found out the opium lord is the third son of the Situ Household who happens to be the boyfriend/intended of the Infanta. He was Xianya, who unfortunately had fallen in love with the graceful Ruo Yo, the star dancer.
As it was not clear that Xianya was also the killer of the star dancer, the servant girl was rearrested.
It is the wedding of the infanta to Xianya but it ended in chaos when Xianya had a delusional episode mistaking that the Infanta was Ruo Yo.
Jiang Ren, the slave of the Infanta was really in love with her (and it seems quite mutual as well) so he went for Xianya with his sword intent on killing him for disrespecting the Infanta.
Lan Zhi was quicker and able to stop him from attacking. With sword fighting, Lan Zhi came out the better one and managed to snag Jiang Ren’s sleeve revealing his tattoo.
Jiang Ren was the wanted man, the police had been looking for. He was their real drug trafficker and manufacturer of opium.
Jiang Ren before dying had already replaced all the candles at the wedding venue. The red candles were stuffed with a super strong hallucinogenic substance that could have killed everyone.
Thank goodness for Mu Le who extinguished the candles.
Yuan An’s stepmother was desperate to marry her off.
She arranged a blind date for Yuan An.
After mistaking another bloke as her date, she finally learned that the man she was supposed to be meeting was Lan Zhi.
She quite likes him initially but ended up hating him as he interrogated her about the latex mask she wore to frighten off the man she thought was her date.
Lan Zhi told her that the only man that can make a latex mask was the wanted cruel monk. Yuan was having none of it as she trusts her ‘Q’ (monk).
She went home and promised herself never to see Lan Zhi again.
Poor Mu Le!
Mu Le was set up by Yuan An’s young brother to take the fall for the voyeur who had been perverting on the servant girls’ quarter.
It was really another male servant who was the culprit, which her brother caught in the act. He blackmailed the servant to make Mu Le to be blamed.
So the servant told the innocent Mu Le to watch over the servant girls as they were fighting inside. He encouraged the innocent Mu Le to look over the hole on the wall.
The other servants then found the shocked Mu Le peeping on the hole, they frogmarched him to Yuan An’s stepmother for punishment.
Yuan An quickly intervened by grabbing the whip from her stepmother.
Previously, Mu Le made Yuan An promised never to hit him. The promise was a payment for Mu Le having saved her numerous times.
But Yuan An was forced to use the whip on him. He sorrowfully said to her “You hit me!” It broke his heart (and mine). The young brother was watching gleefully.
Mu Le was then thrown out of the manor.
Poor Mu Le!
He was once again homeless. He was having a dream.
In his dream, he was falling deep into a quicksand. Yuan An was trying to save him but a dragon got her while being watched by baddies who emigrated from Power Rangers.
Mu Le was befriended by a con-man who used him to steal money from a market vendor.
Yuan An finally found out that Mu Le was truly innocent from perverting on girls and went to look for him. Mu Le refuses to go back with her because he can’t forget that she hit him.
It is the Empress birthday in four days time but her favourite painting called the Bajsoo Tree had gone missing from their archive. Lan Zhi had been called by the head eunuch to investigate. He said head would roll if the the Empress finds out about the missing painting.
Yua An’s half-brother had been gambling and had incurred a huge debt. His debtor had kidnapped him until a ransom (equivalent to his debt) is paid to him. Her half brother’s servant begged Yuan An to save her brother.
She learned that her brother was taken to Luotian Cave. To get there she needed to cross a river with dangerous current.s
The infanta disguised as a ninja helped her and Mu Le to cross the river but secretly stole her valuable dagger, which she was going to barter for her brother’s release.
Lan Zhi ended up at the Luotian Cave as well in chase of the missing painting. He was put in a huge cube cage with Mu Le, Yuan An and her brother to be fed to ferocious hungry fish.
Mu Le with superhuman strength broke the bars and quickly rescued the others one by one except for Lan Zhi as the case dropped into the water already.
They got out of the cave with Yuan An wailing that she needed to rescue Lan Zhi.
Her brother and Mu Le decided to return to the manor against her wishes. Mu Le gave her a karate chop by the neck to keep her unconscious and easier to manage and bring home.
‘Q’ healed Yuan An and helped them with paraphernalia to get back at the renegade still at Luotian cave and also to look for Lan Zhi’s body.
Lan Zhi was far from dead as he had been saved from the fish and nurtured by the Infanta.
Lan Zhi retrieved the painting ready for the Empress birthday.
It was the Empress birthday celebration. She noticed how much the Emperor was enjoying watching nubile girls dancing.
The Empress rather minded that the Emperor was so engrossed. She feels that she was getting old as a few years back she would ignore his womanising ways.
She turned in early despite her ongoing party.
She got rather nostalgic of her old life, when she fell in love with a painter, who painted the Bajsoo Tree.
She later found out that her ex-boyfriend is quite nearby. What she did not know was that he had grown very bitter and blamed her for all the ails in his life.
When he saw her, he wanted her dead.
Thank goodness for Lan Zhi and Mu Le for defending her and of course, Yuan An for protecting her.
The Empress was so grateful to Yuan An that she promoted her father to Minister of Finance. Their fortune has vastly improved.
Suddenly everyone wanted them at their parties.
The Empress had advised Yuan An that if she likes someone then grab every opportunity to be with him so that she will have no regrets one day.
Yuan An has a bit of a crush with Lan Zhi. She wanted his attention so she is trying now to be more girly. First stop is to learn flower arranging.
Meanwhile, Mu Le is confused with his being. He heard Yuan An and Q talking about him not quite human but perhaps a monster.
While he was mulling this over a rescued a noble girl from almost being singed on a lit barbecue grill.
Instead of thanking Mule, the girl wilfully pretended that Mu Le broke her branded earring. And she wanted a lot of money for the repair.
Poor Mu Le borrowed money from everyone but won’t reveal what he needed the money for.
New case for Lan Zhi, a spectre that borrows faces.
The Noble Girl that Mu Le had a run in with hounded him and Yuan An until she was able to convince Yuan An to release Mu Le from his servitude into a free man. The Girl prentended that she and Mu Le were in love.
Yuan An then gave Mu Le to the Girl, who has a secret. She might be the notorious face thief.
Meanwhile Yuan An romance with Lan Zhi is slowly heating up.
Finally Yuan An and Mu Le had their moment, though rather brief.
Mule came back drunk and gave Yuan An a rough lingering kiss and then blamed it all to her for being so beautiful and lovely.
That took a bit of the wind out of yer sail and slightly preened herself. 🙂
Anyway, she told him that he can’t stay with her anymore and enrolled him to the army under Lan Zhi. She warned Lan Zhi to take care of Mu Le and not let him be in any danger.
Lan Zhi had a combat with Mu Le. Lan Zhi won and told Mu Le that he knew why he was behaving like a diva. Lan Zhi then recounted a story about a high born lady who eloped with her servant. They did not have a good life as they were shunned from all side. He then remarked to Mu Le, I know you like Yuan An. But if you really loved her you will allow her to live a life of peace and contentment and not of suffering from being rejected by the fashionable society.
Lan Zhi had his own moment and with the Infanta. In order to stop Lan Zhi going after the bandit leader, who the infanta was protecting because he has one of the divine beads, she snog Lan Zhi. This stunned Lan Zhi and became catatonic.
There has a deeper attraction because they both remember that the Infanta kissed him (mouth to mouth resuscitation) to bring him back to life when he almost drowned.
Lan Zhi and Yuan An had a domestic. Yuan An was raging when she found out that Mu Le had become a bandit. She blames Lan Zhi for having not protected Mu Le enough.
Yuan An tagged along when Lan Zhi took his troop to fight the bandits. There in the forest, Yuan and Mu Le had their confrontation, where Yuan An cajoled Mu Le to go back with her but Mu Le refused especially when Yuan An intimated that he had to go back to the army. Mu Le said that he likes being free with the bandits.
He then confessed to Yuan An that she is the most important person for him and she is the only one that can break his heart as she did. Awww
Lan Zhi and the Infanta continues to flirt with each other but then Lan Zhi would feel guilty because he has an unofficial understanding with Yuan An.
I have to say that I love this drama so much that I actually watch every minute of it without fast-forwarding even once.
Of course I would have prepared for the romance to be faster in its fruition but the stories have been so interesting and the cast, including the villains have been so interesting.
Lan Zhi and the Infanta were imprisodende by the bandits. Yuan An came to their rescue.
Lan Zhi had a one to one with the leader. Before the leader’s death, he threw a poising dagger at the Infanta but Lan Zhi put himself in front of the Infanta and got himself poisoned instead.
Meanwhile, Mu Le at the barracks of the soldiers doing his worse.
Lan Zhi, the hypocrite was annoyed at Yuan An because she does not want him to kill Mu Le. She said that if Mu Le was to be punished then she will do it, only her will do it.
Lan Zhi was dying from the poison. Yuan An brought in ‘Q’ to cure him.
The Infanta noticed that two of the divine beads were in a bracelet worn by ‘Q’.
Yuan An was so upset with Lan Zhi because she thought that he ordered the rain of rocks which fatally hurt Mu Le.
Yuan An cradled Mu Le till the morning and won’t let go of him despite Lan Zhi telling him that it was time to go.
She asked ‘Q’ to heal Mu Le but he told her that Mu Le was a goner.
A young girl from the bandit who seemed to know Mu Le from his previous life made him swallow a red pill.
Miraculously he got better but he told Yuan An that while in his death’s door he realised that he wanted to know his past. He had to leave to find out. She asked if they will see each other again but replied that he didn’t know.
The Emperor has been having nightmares about what happened 19 years ago, where ‘Q” was supposed to have committed a massacre of the monks.
The Infanta revealed that she knew where Q was. He was staying at the Ye mansion.
Encouraged by the state preceptor, the Queen issued an edict to search the Ye manor and arrest Q.
Yuan An was a step faster. She cleared out the manor of everything that could implicate Q being at their mansion. She dressed Q in woman’s clothing and pretend as one of their servant women.
She then helped him get away but Lan Zhi turned up. Yuan An fought with him and then begged him but he was determined to arrest Q. In the end Yuan An used tears and it worked like magic.
Unknown to them the infanta witnessed everything.
She had Yuan An arrested and about to torture when Lan Zhin appeared. He begged her on his knees to be kind to Yuan.
The infanta jealously asked him what Yuan An got that he would beg on his knees.
He just simply said that she was Yuan An.
After Lan Zhin made the Infanta agree not to torture YuanYuan, he then went to the Queen to beg that Yuan Yuan is let out of jail. He was on his knees for three days and three nights waiting for the Queen to answer positively. She did tell him that it was beyond her control as the King pronounce that Yuan Yuan be interrogated, and tortured if necessary, for the whereabouts of Q,
Episode 29 -3 0
The evil Imperial Preceptor had finally met his end. He is dead and gone.
Peace is once again in the empire but for how long?!!!
The Queen had revealed that although the Infanta was a disciple of the late imperial preceptor, she was actually working for the Queen all along.
The queen tasked the infanta into collecting all the legendary divine beads.
The Ye family had a drink up for everybody including all the staff, which meant Mu Le was also there.
But it ended rather emotive as General Zhao came unexpectedly to join the party.
Mu Le was very upset especially when General Zhao and Yuan Yuan were getting along fine.
General Zhao asked her whether the one she like was Mu Le but she quickly denied it that they were just friends.
She then asked what he thinks of her but when he was about to confess to her, she pushed him away.
When he was gone, Mu Le came to see her and tried to hug her but she pushed him away.
He then asked her why she let General Zhao to be familiar to her but she pushes him away.
They parted being hurt with one another.
For the first time, the infanta woke up without worrying about what she needed to do that day, She is at peace.
The queen awarded Q, General Zhao, Yuan An and the infanta for their services rendered to the empire.
After the party, the Queen summoned both Yuan An and Infanta for a private talk. She then asked both girls what they wanted as a reward for their bravery.
Yuan An immediately asked that all cases pending or otherwise against Mu La be expunged and that he should be made a free man.
The queen granted this immediately.
The Infanta then said she wanted Zhao Lan Zhin for herself.
Both the queen and Yuan An were aghast and surprised at the request. It was informally accepted that Lan Zhin was to marry Yuan An one day.
No matter how the queen tried to discourage the infanta, she can’t be moved.
The queen doesn’t have any choice but to grant a marriage between the infanta and Lan Zhin provided that he comes to her himself and ask for permission to marry.
Yuan An immediately relayed the infanta’s request to Lan Zhin, who thought that Yuan An was in one of her jokey modes once more.
He told her that he will visit the infanta and straighten things out.
He did go to the infanta who said that she was collecting on a firm promise he made to her in return of not torturing Yuan An.
Lan Zhin said he will do anything including giving his life to her but he will never marry her.
It looks like that Lin Zhin is a secret gambler and had accumulated some debts. The infanta is using this situation.
Meanwhile Yuan An is suddenly falling apart. She is losing her senses. She can’t see, she can’t taste and her memory is going as well. She managed to communicate to Lan Zhin that she had been poisoned by the infanta.
