First Impression: What do you think of The Legends with Bai Lu and Xu Kai?

Somebody be a dear and tell me if this is worth watching? The shallow in me is gobbling up the prettiness, reminds me of The Legends of Zu.

The Legends (招摇) is adapted from the novel written by Jiu Lu Fei Xiang starring new faces such as Bai Lu (King is Not Easy) and Xu Kai (Zhao Ge) as leads. Bai Lu plays Wan Lu Men’s Sect Master who is in pursuit of the legendary Wan Jun Sword left behind by the Demon Lord but she’s tricked by our hero which leads her into a precarious situation. Five years later (??!), she returns to her sect to get back her position but our hero has taken over the sect. He’s also the Demon Lord’s son disguised as a sect disciple to scheme her out of her position five years ago. She then lures him into another journey to get another sword (LOL) with the help of a rising wulin star (Dai Xu) but as it turns out, she gets kidnapped by her conspirator and the hero has to rescue her. Why does this sound so funny? Or am I reading this wrong? XD
