We can start with the story. Already from the start, the story plot had me twisting in anticipation. At the most time when I thought I knew what was going to happen, it was the opposite. It is a very beautiful story, at the same time, it is kinda scary as it shows the darker side of the human nature.

I like the cast very much. I feel like the main characters read more had a excellent chemistry. Both of the male leaders portrayed their characters very well. And Xin Yue was also great.

I also enjoyed the music. At first, I didn't like the Bai Tou Yin by Della Ding as the music was a bit odd. But you grow to like the two songs by her as they play throughout the whole drama. Also, the opening song is also very nice and has really meaningful lyrics. Definitely a 10 from me!

Actually, I have rewatched this drama two times, and every single time I just couldn't stop watching. Even though I already seen it before. It is just so good.

Overall, I think they have made an excellent drama! I feel like the clothing and scenery was quite nice. I definitely recommend this one to everyone that loves for example Prince of Lan Ling, which is also one of my favorite drama.

I really loved this drama. I like ones like this and Journey of Flower and Prince of Lan Ling. The artistic scenery with the CG is always nice. I liked the main leads a lot. Watching her tormented between two main leads in a triangle is the main plot, and the rest is just the side plot. Xin Yue and General Wei are perfect together. Mo Xun is annoying at first but read more the end leaves us satisfied with him. Overall even though the ending had much sacrifice for a 'happy ending' I'm just grateful there is a happy ending at least! Overall, great Wu Xia drama with romance as its highlight. I think this series may be underrated! So 10/10 for me!!

    so who does she end up with in the end? I'm finding it hard to figure out who is the main male lead and who is the second male lead.

      It makes no sense, especially looking at how much fur the dogs have how can they live in a desert = =; The amount of logic invested there is zero.

    Does anything interesting happen later? I just finished ep 2, and not sure if I should continue or not. Is this one of those dramas that don't really have a plot and just goes on however it wants? Does the main girl not have anymore fighting scenes later on? I really liked those fighting scenes.

      She doesn't fight at all, the story is really boring just a love triangle that goes on for too many episodes. The ending is pretty meh as well, I watched it but i would not recommend anyone to watch it. It starts off pretty cool, a girl who grows up with wolves but the plot has nothing to do with wolves or fighting at all.

      Alright thanks! :) I guess i'll be dropping then. I thought it would be more interesting cuz of the beginning, but then all of a sudden, she's staying in the city, so i was hesitant to continue watching because didn't like where it was going.

      She does fight in later episodes... especially episode 17.

    Egh. I could write a review, but I'm lazy, so all I'll say is; the beginning of the drama was fairly good, and the entire drama was charming. But it just sort of lacked any direction as to what was happening in the drama. I felt like the ending of the drama was very lackluster. Maybe it's just my opinion, though. I also really liked the drama as a whole anyway.

    Therefore, I conclude that this drama is great if you actually know who is the male main lead so you won't end up hoping that she will end up with the other guy. Because if you love the other lead than i recommend you to stop watching this drama because his life in the drama is insanely tragic. and i have a bit of a problem with how the female lead can become a lady so fast after living her life as a wolf girl, it's a bit too unrealistic for me. but all in all, story line is interesting and unpredictable, cinematography is exceptional,acting is great, everything do have the same vibe as bbjx but for me bbjx is such a well rounded masterpiece that it's hard for any dramas to compare.

      Yep I agree whole heartedly with this advice. Be mentally prepared for the better guy to not end up with the girl.

    Beautiful, splendind drama! It gave me a lot of feels and I enjoyed so, so much! Chemistry was excellent, from the sweet to their intimate moments, everything was amazing. Eddie is my kind of man, I loved his passion about everything, either be in love or work. Hu Ge's character was okay, but it wasn't that exciting. However, I cried a river in the last episode, he's such a sweetheart and I loved when he said this: "Most of the beauty of this world can never be owned. It is enough to have experienced beauty. There are no regrets, only longing and feelings. This is already good enough." Overall, I enjoyed to the fullest... well it was expected from Bu Bu Jing Xin's writer. ;)

    I really liked it! The chemistry between the WuJi and XinYue was amazing♥♥ But there's a thing I didn't really liked although it still didn't stop me from enjoying it and that is the way the action scenes were made together with the scenes were they were running on the rooftops. It looked like they didn't even bother to make it seem like it's reality, but I guess that's just how the chinese cinematography is... At least it was a lot better than "A different kind of pretty man" in that aspect XD But I still enjoyed this drama a lot and I give it a 9^^

    Beautiful drama! Some moments are a bit long, but I guess that s the deal with historical dramas. Strong love story, great acting! My only regret? Not enough of hu wei li! His personnage was really interesting and could be developed more! Overall i give this a 9 !

    Trying not to spoil this.. Here I go. I felt really bad for one of the male leads, his story is just too tragic and honestly, gets even more tragic as the story continues. He made some mistakes, sure, haven't we all? But that should not be what he has to make up for for his whole life. The other guy, he's lucky to have her, but I disagree with the pairing. I just felt like the 2nd guy loved her to the point where, to me, it seemed like it was turning into an obsessive and abusive relationship. (I know their names, but I'm not trying to spoil it). It really made me question where we can draw the line for abuse in any relationship. Many times, I wanted to just drop this drama, but I have a policy to not drop dramas unless absolutely necessary. I'm glad I finished it, but I will probably never watch this drama again. Not because the characters were bad, but because I disagreed with the pairing and I felt extremely depressed for the 1st guy. I hated the ending, but kudos to you if you are a fan of this drama and liked the pairing.
