The Journey of Flower (花千骨) is about a girl whose blood can wither plants and attract demons. One day, a god came along, swooped her up, and took her to his place somewhere in the clouds. He taught her to fly on swords, fight demons, and get boys to fall head over heels for her (ok, maybe not the last part). She became so infatuated with him she couldn’t bear losing him to wherever-god-goes-after-death, so she committed unforgivable transgressions to save his life. Therefore, it only made sense that he sacrificed even more to protect her from retribution of her crimes. The vicious cycle continued until she became a demon god with powers to annihilate the world. By this point, there was nothing he could do to help her. So he killed her.
This is one of the worst executed fantasy drama I have ever seen. It is disappointing that a drama rich with conflicts and potential character development spins its tail on one issue (Bai Zi Hua is risking his life to protect Hua Qian Gu, therefore we need to think of another way to get rid of the girl) for 30+ episodes then tries to wrap up all the storylines in the final 3 episodes. WTF?
I honestly do not recommend this drama. I fast forwarded the entire portion on the human king. His irresponsibility to his kingdom is detestable. I also skipped most of Nie Man Tian storyline. There is only so much mindless hating I can handle. I really wanted to jump over Tang Bao, but Lou Shi Yi made me stay. And don’t get me started on the broken record that is Hua saving Bai protecting Hua. I kept watching in the hope that this episode will be the episode that they break the cycle and he professes his love to her. Imagine how upsetting I was when it didn’t happen even in the bitter end? I stayed through all their angst and stupidity for this crap? I should have dropped this drama when Dongfang Yu Qing died. As it turned out, his story was the only one worth watching anyway.
