Gu She was a cold, intelligent, and well-educated lawyer. He started out with indifferent feelings toward the new magistrate Tao Mo in town but through solving many cases together, they gradually developed feelings for each other. What he did not know: the new magistrate was illiterate, and his post was bought through money. Described as naive and well-meaning, he only liked to stare at pretty boys. Throughout their journey, he also unveiled secrets behind his father’s death. A love triangle was formed when his old lover Emperor Wen of Chen appears half-way into the story.

Really cute story with nice characters. I like the fluff and the interactions. There are not too many cases, the story is more focused on the development of the relationship which is so cute. I enjoyed reading it.

(≧▽≦) uuu I love Gu She so much!

the interactions are so cute, a hint of jealousy, small acts, everything is lovable... (as we see he has a cold face)

but it's just too short (123 chapter is short with a few events happening, and its ending is disclose, which should has more extras, but none (´・ω・`))

I really like this novel, especially the characters ヽ (^。^) ノ

This is good... Starts with muted comedic tones then in middle the ML &MC becomes somewhat ambiguous & at the end is the happy ending. Had lots of cute fluffy moments. The Love rival just appeared like a passerby with little scenes & just didn't interfere with the Love progress. Overall cute fluffy comedy.

This is a decent read. Majority of it revolves around the main character interactions with the male lead while there were some aspects of mystery solving in it.

I almost read this novel back in 8 Oct 2020 when I first found it, but I drop it at that time, even that this novel is always in my mind because I search it online this is the first drama adaptation of a dan mei novel in ancient setting.

NOTE: I wrote the date for personal note

After finished it I can say that at first this novel made me laugh, I really miss this type of comedy novel, there are tactics to solve problems in court.

I thought Tao... more>> Mo is gōng, because he likes beauty that much and when the story flows I just realized that he is actually a shòu.

What's funny is that the night before the wedding Lao Tao gave a message to Tao Mo to tell Gu She to be gentle on the first night because this was Tao Mo's first time, I just wonder why Lao Tao so sure that Tao Mo was a Shou?

the story is actually ok, it's just that in the end it made me wonder, it seems that a lot of things were left unanswered, did the writer do it on purpose?

I'm worried about some characters in the end, such as :

- What happened to Peng Xiang after it all happened ?
- How did YiYu die? I actually feel sorry for him...
- What happen to Lao Tao? did he survived?
- Was MuChun found and survived?
- What happened to Huang Guang De's case after he committed suicide? will the problem spread to prince Ling Yang?
- How is Yue ling's love story with Zhang Zishu?
- How did Xue Yi Hou (Xue Ling Bi) betray the emperor? and I want to know the love story between him and Ming Zhun...

too many unanswered question... maybe I am over thinking...

But I do like how the couple love grew in story plot, and I had a couple tears in my eyes when Tao Mo asked Gu She for certainty about why he proposed to him? and Gu She replied "Wouldn't it be good to spend the rest of your life together ?" <<less

Absolutely love this adorable novel! Don't expect too much mystery solving - everything that's there is mostly to develop the characters' relationship. The only thing I'll never understand is this:


The novel's title in Mandarin is apparently 识汝不识丁 - but this means 识 (know) 汝 (you) 不识丁 (illiterate) a.k.a "I know you are Illiterate". I really want to know - how on earth on did this get title end up with its English name being "Love is more than a Word"? :D


BTW - does anyone know if this translation is continuing?
