Last Update: None, from what I could tell
From Drama- In Tang Dynasty, the chivalrous eldest daughter of the Assistant Minister of Revenue, Ye Yuan An, saves Mu Le, an amnesiac young man of mysterious identity. Yuan An takes Mu Le in as a family servant, and the latter swears his loyalty to her. Along with Zhao Lan Zhi, a constable, the trio solve cases after cases together. But what is Mu Le’s true identity?
mtled- It tells the story of Qimen Nine Star Rosary Beads stolen after Master Tang Sanzang passed away. The daughter of the household minister, Ye Yuanan, got acquainted with Zhao Lanzhi, the catcher by mistake. The two work together to solve the case and save the amnesiaous man Mu Le from the ghost market as a domestic slave. Unexpectedly, the pure Mu Le gradually developed a love for Yuan’an.
I personally liked the drama because it’s one of the first cdramas I’ve watched where the FL isn’t completely useless, she doesn’t need to be rescued constantly, and she actually manages to be pretty clever without having to be backstabbing or conniving. I’m also certain that the novel is better than the drama because from what I’ve heard from people who read it, the drama didn’t give the whole ending. But I can’t read Chinese and I can’t find a translation.
