Cast & Credits
Jiang Xin's portrayal of her character did not fit Tang Ning's background at all. Throughout the entire show, she seems to be capable of only one single expression - a dazed, teary-eyed look (Those who have watched it would instantly know what I am referring to). Rather than being the strong, Harvard-educated lawyer that Tang Ning should be, Jiang Xin makes Tang Ning a meek and dumb woman who at times tries to be "cute" but ends up being seriously annoying. Previously, I never believed that a single actor/actress can so substantially lower the enjoyability of an entire show, but Jiang Xin proved me very wrong.
If you can look past Jiang Xin's miserable failure, you will find the show quite enjoyable. The majority of other actors do a very good job portraying their characters, such as the actor and actress who played Dai Po and Tang Jing respectively. The plot was quite engaging throughout the show, though the emphasis on hereditary cases seem a bit forced. Music was enjoyable but not outstanding.
Overall, I don't believe it is worth a watch. At around episode twenty I was quite ready give up. The prevailing opinion from the youtube comments at that point all were along the lines of "Jiang Xin makes the show unbearable to watch."
If just the character once followed the logic that was right in front their eyes the whole show it would have ended eons ago. I hate this kind of drama where writers intentionally make an illogical choice just to drag the drama for a longer time.
The main female lead's facial expression wasn't so varied. There was only 2-3 facial expression. I don't why but I very much like those expressions. But, it would have been better if there were more.
In conclusion, it was an illogical drama where there is one after another birth secret. I don't know how the writers kept track of them.If you have time and you want to watch a drama where everyone wins and there is illogical twist after twist you can watch it.
