Jin Xin Si Yu (锦心似玉) is based on the novel written by Zhi Zhi. The story takes place during the Ming Dynasty and follows our heroine as she rises from a lowly concubine’s daughter and enters a marriage with our hero – a general, to save his family from a crisis. She is a highly intelligent young maiden who is restrained in exhibiting her wisdom. Once in her new husband’s home, though she’s pressured by the complicated relationships and distrust, she uses her kindness and intelligence to win people’s respect and help her husband in devising plans to oust the corrupt officials and in defending the land from foreign invasions.
I can get behind this couple. The age difference helps in this case, he’s a general so being older is okay. The story sounds typical so it’s up to the characters to make it vibrant for us!
