Jinshi, the man who could destroy the country thanks to his excessive beauty, asked Maomao to apply makeup to transform him into someone else. He applies powder to make him look tanned, wraps a cloak around him to give him an awkward figure, and wears civilian clothes to transform himself into someone else. After completing her work, Maomao thinks about returning home for a long vacation, but is stopped by Gaoshun and Suiren and ends up disguising herself and walking around town with Jinshi.
