After that, King Tru led his army to conquer everywhere without caring about politics. Because of many years of conquest and internal conflicts, the Shang Dynasty eventually perished.
In the work Feng Than Yanyi, King Zhou once visited Nu Wa temple and insulted the goddess. Outraged, Nüwa ordered the fox spirit to seduce him. Dat Ky’s family name is To, the daughter of To Ho. She is a person with captivating beauty, one of the great beauties in Chinese history. On the way to surrender to King Tru, Dat Ky was possessed by a fox spirit to carry out the mission assigned by Nu Wa. Under the influence of Dat Ky, King Tru became confused and cruel and eventually caused the Shang Dynasty to collapse.
King Tru was the last king of the Shang Dynasty
Since the appearance of Dat Ky, King Tru immersed himself in pleasure, was indifferent to state affairs and became increasingly cruel to his loyal mandarins.

He was known as a loyal minister. Always interrupting, making Tru Vuong displeased. Ty Can also had a conflict with Dat Ky, the wife who was extremely favored by King Tru.

According to Phong Than’s interpretation, Ty Can knew that Dat Ky was a fox spirit that had transformed into a demon to fascinate Tru Vuong, so he decided to find the lair of the fox descendants, burn them to death, skin them, and then sew fur coats. He gave this shirt to King Tru to use during the winter. Because of this, Dat Ky was very angry and determined to take revenge on Ty Can.
Dat Ky pretended to be sick and told King Tru that only Ty Can’s “heart with 7 rare holes” would be cured. At the same time, checking Ty Can’s heart is also a way to check whether Ty Can is a loyal servant or not. The heart is the core of the human body and a symbol of loyalty. If the heart is red, then Ty Can is a loyal servant, and if it is black, then he is definitely a person with treacherous motives.
Ty Can had his heart ripped out after entering the palace to meet King Tru.
King Tru was fascinated by Dat Ky so he sent someone to summon Ty Can into the palace. Knowing that this trip would be more or less good, but remembering the letter and amulet left by Khuong Tu Nha, Ty Can burned the amulet, took the ashes, mixed it with water to drink, and then entered the palace.
Sister Can tried her best to persuade Tru Vuong but to no avail. In the end, King Tru’s men had his chest slit and his heart ripped out.
According to Phong Than’s interpretation, the strange thing is that after having his heart ripped out, Ty Can was still alive. He covered his wound, didn’t say a word and quickly rode his horse back home. However, when he was almost home and met an old woman selling vegetables on the side of the road, Ty Can immediately died on the spot. Ultimately, the reason why?
Why did Ty Can die after meeting the old woman selling vegetables?
The meeting and conversation with the old woman selling vegetables on the way back to the palace caused Ty Can to lose his life
The old woman selling vegetables on the side of the road kept shouting: “Is anyone buying vegetables without a heart?”. Feeling strange, Ty Can immediately asked: “What is heartless vegetables?” The old woman selling vegetables replied: “I’m just a poor woman selling vegetables without heart. Heartlessness, of course, means having no heart.”
Ty Can asked curiously: “Can vegetables live without a heart? What about people without a heart?”
The old woman selling vegetables immediately replied: “People without heart will only have one way to die.”
After hearing this, Ty Can immediately fell down and died on the spot.

Because when Khuong Tu Nha gave Ty Can the amulet, he left a sentence. That is, burn the talisman and drink it before cutting out the heart so it won’t bleed, especially absolutely don’t talk to anyone on the way back to the palace, then your life can be saved.
Apparently, after talking with the old woman selling vegetables, Tu Can realized that without a heart, the only way is death.

Although Ty Can was a talented, upright man and a loyal official of the Shang Dynasty, he eventually lost his life because his trust was shaken.
