Cast & Credits
Lets talk about the good bits. Xiao Cui is really adorable character. One u want to take under your wing and root for. Her naveity and treating yuan feng initially as 'mama' was really cute. He was the first person after she came out from her 'egg' and ended up beside him assisting him in breaking cases. Her love stems from very pure and basic reasoning. Loving him means spending the rest of your lives together. Yuan Feng character initally comes off as brash and proud. He does t quite say what he means and without knowing it comes to care for xiao cui. The two have some really sweet moments that i really love. And for those reasons i couldnt exactly say i regret watching this drama.
I couldnt really develop any attachment to the other supporting cast. The other couple also had alot of screentime but i find Ai ya character to be annoying. Sad to say i skip almost 2/3 of the drama, sometimes nearly an entire episode whenevr theres no Xiao Cui. I find the scriptwriter forgot the whole gist of the story. The title of the drama should be on the fox spirit aka Xiao Cui. If only they spend more time on her and her romance it would have been way better. And dont get me started on the last few episode weird plot and sour ending. Spoiler or not i feel the need to forewarn.
For the good romance part i love ep 26 and parts of ep 30. U may skip 31 to 40 to avoid the ending. Or if you want to know more of how thins unfold watch til ep 39 and the first 10mins of ep40. I wish someone have told me that before i watch the whole thing.
Now im gonna scour youtube for fmv that combines only the good bits of Yuan Feng & Xiao Cui moments. Sigh that kiss in the rain was so romantic as was the parts when he rescue her. If only the writers didnt screw up..
Fyi i love the ending theme song. Very emotionally provoking.
