I have no idea why I'm enjoying this drama. The falling down 60 or more feet with a twirl and pretty face is laughable but I can't help but watch more. I'm falling for Wallace and can't wait to see the prince (brother from scarlet heart 2) to fail miserably. Idk how the next 20 episodes will go but I'm ready.
PS: Still enjoyable though. Not a masterpiece, but to watch the chess-game between the leads unfold is good enough for me. The costumes aren't awfully cheap either. I hope I will last through 60 episodes, though.
Haha. Almost drowning - perfect hair and make-up afterwards. Poison and coma - perfect hair and make-up. Falling from a galopping horse - do I need to say it? -----> I get it, the entire drama is an ad for hairspray and waterproof make-up. LOL
Watched up to episode 20 so far, and it's not a great piece of art by any means and sometimes borders on "so bad it's good" (e.g. Tarzan scene) but it's entertaining, provided I fast-forward through pretty much anything that isn't about the main pair. I don't know how it's going to go another 40 episodes though...
Not enjoying this drama as much as I hoped. The beginning was good then the mains just start circling around each other for 10 episodes without much advancement to the plot. To die or not to die. Acting is mediocre, Angelababy is pretty but stiff, Wallace is about the same but his voice really annoys me for some reason. Sounds like he's trying hard to speak perfect mandarin.
This drama is so good. Amazing Cinematography, great actor's and actress, awesome screen writer. The Chemistry is superb and the scenery is beautiful. I love General and I better than Princess Wei Young.
Okay I have to admit the chemistry DOES get better and so does AB (not sure if I'm just used to her or what). Perhaps I have long accepted the fact that they've taken liberties from the novel, but the drama plot itself isn't all that bad.
The novel had me addicted but apart from all the prettiness, I'm not enjoying this as much as I'd hoped. The Princess Weiyoung kept me hooked because of Tuoba Yu but I'm struggling to find a hook with this drama. Also, whoever does Angelababy's eyeliner needs to teach me. (Not crazy about her lip colour choices tho!)
The opening credits and ending credits look like a quick recap of the entire drama, and the scenes look very good. I watched 12 episodes already. I love Wallace Chung's role as General Chu Bei Jei. I amd hopeful of a happy ending, along with my tears of joy. I found the novel online, and will try to read it soon.
