Easily cowed and bullied, she was the useless, ugly woman with no talent in medical skills. Supported by millions, he was Tianning’s most respected duke with the power to move all under Heaven. On their wedding day the bridal sedan was carried to the front doors, but the Duke of Qin’s gates were shut tight.
They told her, ‘Come back tomorrow.’
All alone, she walked step-by-step full of pride through the duke’s doors. Little could they imagine, this unattractive good-for-nothing was a beautiful, genius doctor of poisons!
After transmigrating to the past, poison expert Han Yunxi finds herself on the verge of being married off to the country’s second most powerful man, the Duke of Qin. Her future life seems set – except her husband is an unfeeling ice block, her in-laws think she’s a eyesore, the empress dowager wants to use her for her own goals, and poison-related plots abound.
Alone, the intelligent (and sensible) Yunxi must carve her own space from the intricate web of court intrigue and the jianghu, relying on her words, wits, and wisdom to survive. Adapt when necessary, use force when required; to survive and thrive is the name of the game to a prosperous life.
No matter what, she’ll prove her right to live!

Contrary to her sweet and innocent appearance, she can complete any tasks without the slightest hesitation. One day because of an incomplete black magic, she was sent into the body of a girl who was deemed as a waste of resources. What kind of change will she bring to this continent?
A certain bitter and hateful Prince says, “I believed she was weak and easy to bully, therefore I broke off my engagement. Only, I didn’t expect she is a poisonous shrewd. I made an error of judgment.”
A certain Crown Prince deeply sighs, “She is such a sexy evildoer! Obviously, she has a frail and tender body, but I wasn’t able to overtake her…”
Finally, a certain Emperor hit the nail on the head, “She is just a bit two-faced!”
She answered, “I’m just a big pervert!”
A certain Emperor carried her into a room. “Then, you are meant for me! Two-faced and pervert, that’s a perfect match!”

But once they reach their destination, those countless phantoms and ghosts that exist deep down in your nightmares will be everywhere, waiting to take over your lives.
Even if they stay alive and return to the apartment, they must face the next time. The next time that the bloody words appear.
To leave this apartment, there is only one way…
