Low-budget doesn't mean horrendous

Shit... OKAY THEN, I, by mistake, erased all my review... So yeah, I think that I said so far that I kinda liked every male characters, even the pseudo-assassin and the pseudo-bandit, they are kinda funny. The first episodes were really so funny and you everytime see it coming when there will be a "catastrophic scene" ahah. The female lead is quite annoying, unninteresting and her character doesn't bring anything to the story... The second female lead is a bit better but I still don't really like her so far. I have the impression that every female character is clichée or really annoying/stupid, the writers don't know how to creat realistic female characters...

The scenes in the water were disapointed, it didn't feel like a 2017's production (even for a low-budget) but like a 1990's production...

Then... AH YES, I also talked about THE QUESTION. I mean, Zhan Xiong Fei and his buddy finally asked THE question : "how are we gonna find you if we ever need something ?" when martial artists give them a promise to help them. This question feels sooooo legit ahah. But I guess if you are a martial artist (the two buddies don't seem like martial artists tho ahah, even if there are some good fight scenes), it's easy to find/track another martial artist but still, this question felles really legit ahah.

I like this drama so far even if there are some illogical stuff.

OH YEAH, also, Bai Ze being crafty and making stuff and so on, that's so cool, I'm really happy that they add these kind of scenes, for real ! I was craving for them.

Just for a quick review of the acting and the OST : it's kinda nice to watch even if sometimes, it feels like not natural at all but that's okay. The OST is okay but not that great tho. It kinda fits the drama and even if they use some unnecessary sound effects, that's still kinda okay. Actually the acting kinda fits the atmosphere of the drama so even if there are some exagerated scenes, that's still funny and entertaining to watch ! But for the fight scenes, mostly for those that contains swords fight... They didn't make any efforts, that's a pity. It seems like they were only moving a stick like 4-year-old... But it was bearable.

And someone said that it was really bad that the drama doesn't contain real romance... OH GOSH, I'm so HAPPY that it doesn't contain that much of romance ahah. The female leads are really boring and annoying, so putting too much romance scenes, it would have make the drama garbage, for real... And actually, there is romance... There are plenty of scenes, and not only two-three like the person said (in the other review).

And even if I said that the drama was funny, the storyline is still quite serious and it's really nice to watch.

But HEY, how many times did they end in jail ? x'D

I think it would have been really better with more friendship (maybe some bromance, the storyline is really good for bromance but there is none...). The friendship is good but not enough developed, that's a pity. And maybe less episodes or better transitions/logical development between each "arc"/episode. But the drama is good overall, at least to watch one time and it will be a good memory !

The end is cliché but still nice to watch and the last scenes are really touching (really talking about the last last last scenes, like the 1-2minutes before the ending song).

This drama is not perfect, not the best one and the storyline is not well-made BUT I still had a good moment. Like, you know, you like watching "dumb"/easy things but they reveal themselves to be good and entertaining ! Like, you was waiting for nothing from them but you are satisfied at the end, like if you spent some hours with silly friends. I had this feeling after finishing this drama. I really recommend it for spending some hours watching an easy-going drama.

I put some rewatch value because I think I will not mind if I have to rewatch it with someone or whenI eat or things like that (because yes, I hate watching serious/incredible stuff when I eat ahah).

I think this drama was okay but their were a lot of things which I didn't like

1.The girl of the second couple she is soo annoying but I mean I think in every drama their is always this character that you don't like which is really annoying, you I was like doesn't matter just watch.

2.Their is actually no romance I mean I think they actually really care about them but their romance has not developed
Their is maybe only three romantic scenes in the whole drama which was really annoying to tell the truth ionly wanted to watch this drama because it thought their were going to have romantic scenes.

3.The acting is not bad is okay but I mean the only thing that actually was good was the music and the characters

I dropped this drama up to ep 20 seriously I will not watch it again is actually really boring.
For me the main girl is not that annoying maybe she doesn't know how to fight but she is cute and funny but I wish she could fight At first I actually loved the boy that protected her but after the boy got in love with the second lead which I seriously don't like that couple, the story is soo complicated I mean is like soo confusing Is like every character has something different and a story which is actually really confusing,so Yh
