The drama was very promising especially at the beginning. As a lot of rom-com dramas begin, the main leads met bickering at each other. Both the main leads in the present and past met that way. But apart from episode 1 and 40, we don't see the characters in the present time. The story focused on the characters in the past but what sucked was that Luo Fu Sheng, the hero, did not win the heroine's heart till towards the middle of the drama and the drama instead focused on the side characters. When they finally got together there, were hardly any lovey dovey scenes because the story then focus on the family feud and when that was solved, the Japanese spy invaded the story. At the end, Luo Fu Sheng died and so we're back to the present time. In less than an episode, the main leads of the present time fell in love, separated, reunited and decided to get married. So much characters development for the side characters but no character development for the present couple. Seriously, what's wrong with the writer/s? I know Chinese dramas tend to have bad or sad ending but at least they'd usually have some logic to the story. Zhu Yi Long acting as Luo Fu Sheng was just perfect. Too bad the storyline sucked. If you're a fan of Zhu Yi Long then watching this drama is definitely worth it since you can gawk at him playing the charismatic bad boy that is often times cute and adorable and at times badass. The soundtrack is good as well, since there's one sung by Zhu Yi Long.

I have a high expectation for this drama to begin with. When i read the title, i hope that it would not turn to usual chinese republican era drama but things just don't work along with my expectation.

The story presented in this drama is typically a triangle love that many modern dramas have showcased. The only thing that differs is the time setting. A third story is written with consistent and good pace. And after that, the story progression seems to become slower. Although the pace is slower, the story and the pace are consistent. The first half of the drama is spent for the love story between the female lead and second male lead so don't be surprised if the appereance of the first male lead is not as much as the second lead in the first half. This drama isn't cringy but it's draggy. There are many plot holes but i still can grasp the story. Sometimes, the logic of the characters are illogical. The story is interesting but it lacks of details and it has quiet a lot of fillers. The ending is quiet good, confusing and rush at the same time. There are too many characters died in the end. The ending for this drama (republican era arc) is just the same with other republican era dramas

The casts' acting is good. I don't have any concern about it.

The music of this drama is quiet pleasing

If you're looking for romance drama with happy ending, i don't recommend you to watch it. But you can give it a try
