Before she died, the Flower Deity learned of a prophecy that Jin Mei will suffer a great love trial in the first thousand years of her life. In order to stop this, she gave Jin Mei a pill that would suppress her feeling and expressing romantic love.
Unfortunately for Jin Mei, she catches the eye of two gods. One is Xufeng (Deng Lun), the Fire God and God of War, and the other is Runyu (Luo Yunxi), the Night God. The second and eldest son of the Heavenly Emperor (He Zhonghua) respectively, the two brothers find themselves embroiled in a political battle for Heaven and Jin Mei’s heart.
