Based on the novel written by Shi Si Lang, Love and Redemption (琉璃美人煞) stars Yuan Bing Yan and Cheng Yi as the leading couple. Our heroine is the second daughter to Shaoyang Sect Leader, who is inept in martial arts and described as clueless and weak, in comparison to her capable older sister (Zhang Yu Xi). Therefore, during the annual Martial Arts Competition, while her older sister is sent to represent the sect, younger sister is sent to a cave to reflect and that’s where she meets Lize Palace‘s disciple, our hero, and the two forge a friendship. Elder Sister makes enemy with Wu Long during the competition and he in return, injures our heroine, which motivates her to improve her martial arts in the next four years. Wu Long then betrays the righteous sects and join the evil sects in hopes of taking over jianghu. Our leads now must work together to fight the evil forces. The novel is much more complicated with their past lives being immortal beings who fought the demon a thousands years ago and disappeared.
