First off, season one and two are essentially the same drama, only split into two parts. There isn't really an end to this "season", so this review will be based off of episodes 1-21.
The story itself is a very light hearted typical romantic comedy. It has the seemingly cold guy and a bubbly girl. I definitely had my differences with the female lead. She has a habit of lying and turning read morebystanders against whoever she is targeting (let's be real, most of the time it's the male lead). I found that incredibly annoying and unlikable, but perhaps that is why she is the "fox" in the title. That does stop after about the first ten or so episodes so she has grown on me since then. There isn't really a major over-arching plot, and as of yet, since it is the incomplete story, there hasn't been a climax. The only things that really propel the story forward are the relationship between the female lead and the male lead and the "love square" that they're involved in.
As I mentioned before, the female lead began as very unlikable to me, but the actress portrayed that role quite well. I felt that the male lead however, could be a bit more expressive. I understand that his role is supposed to be cold and stoic, but his expressions could use a little more emotion.
The music wasn't very memorable, but it wasn't unpleasant.
This drama isn't anything special or new, but it is an enjoyable watch. It's a good light hearted show to watch especially as a break between some heavier dramas.
The drama is based on a Chinese novel. The main leads showed great chemistry with their funny & cute relationship journey. The show is not that cliche as I thought it would be. Just like any drama, there's characters that hate one another but not to the "crazy-evil" extent. Overall the show brought out more laughters and enjoyment during my watch.
As you've noted, they do this with their other dramas as well. I think it's because Tecent Video is a subscription website. If you go to their official website and look now, you'll see they've reset the entire Season 1 of Fox's Summer to VIP-users only and are releasing the episodes one by one again. I noticed they did the same with Master Devil. When they reset Season 1 of Master Devil to subscription only, they also removed it from their official YT channel.
If they keep the same schedule as the first season... The VIP/premium members will get to view all the episodes once it starts airing on May 4th. The regular airings will probably end at the end of May (21 eps, 1 eps every weekday)
