Moonshine and Valentine

I had the chance to watch this Chinese drama not too long ago and I would say that I thoroughly enjoyed the storyline, regardless of what other people has said of the disappointing, open-ended ending.

I do have a small beef in regards to the storyline.

The story was about a girl who was destined to be the cure for a hybrid child. Now it was understandable that the only method to harvest the needed organ was by death since it was the ancient time. And at every incarnation, the girl was destined to not live a long life anyway. So in modern times like now, I would have thought that the girl (if she knew about her long-forged destiny earlier on into her relationship with the guy) would still be able to save the guy by giving a part of her organ (in this case the liver, and it is known that a liver could regenerate back to its full size if a part of it is transplanted) and not have to give up her life.

That was what I understood anyway but it seems later on the storyline conveniently mentioned that the girl’s life essence was the cure for the hybrid child. So why go for taking the liver out?? Is the life essence based in the liver?? I don’t know really.

But it was a good in-between drama to watch.
