At the end the girl together with that soldier but the soldier is possessive and he hurt that girl and that girl’s mother, in the end that girl was something wrong with her brain.

Revised: 

I just remember one thing/part of the plot in this tv show; the soldier likes the main character/female protagonist, but she has a boyfriend. So, that soldier hurt her boyfriend. In the end, the girl gets together with that soldier but the soldier is possessive and he hurt her and her mother. At the end of the story, that girl becomes crazy/insane. In the special years, in China.


After watching this I need time to relax. At the end, this girl got together with her boyfriend but she also has something wrong with her brain. The boyfriend wait for her so this is a good end. I think most of modern stories have these experiences inside, but this story is based on real life, maybe the real life is worse than this story.

Revised: 

After watching this, I needed time to relax/a break. In the end, this girl gets together with her boyfriend but she also has a mental health problem/disorder. Her boyfriend finds her and takes care of her so I think this is a good ending. I think most modern stories have these storylines/plots, but this story is based on true events so the actual events might be worse than this story.
