So, it's been said that the FL is not facing an outright ban as her case is still under investigation. Melons say that this will airdrop in Q1 of 2024, to ride on Liu Yu Ning's wave of popularity from his latest drama, A Journey to Love with Liu Shi Shi. Also, the producers would want to recoup on the investment before the final verdict is out.

Let's see, if it does. Apparently the story is a bit like LLTG but the novel is more 'juicy' as the ML is really physically attracted to the FL and they have many bed scenes, though this would probably not get approved in a drama.
