Cast & Credits
also the fight between SMY and ZGL is a little bit on a stretch. i think almost half of the drama is just about them fighting which is suuuuuper slow (hence the 8.5 rating). i personally think the drama doesnt start until episode 29.
i have 2 problems with the sequel:
1. How SMY is partial towards his sons. for instance during war, he kept the other generals in the dark and only discuss military plans with his sons. that leads to dispute and loses. worst he didnt even bother to explain when one of the generals asked him of his refusal to attack. it did not just happen once but all the time!!! the war with ZGL was so frustrating to watch due to SMY attitude and his sons especially zhao.
2. I know the writer is trying to lighten up the mood by throwing in a bit of humour into the drama but often times it feels out of place especially to SMY character. like they are in a serious discussion then suddenly SMY being all goofy. bummerrrr. it was well done for the first one but not in here because the sequel is heavy in war/politics
but the gush of emotions towards the end is so real. maybe if i were to rewatch id just rewatch the last 15 episodes XD. also Shi and Hui is super loving they remind me of Ping Zhang and Qian Xue <3 my fav couple in NIF2
still a good watch tho
after watching "Three Kingdoms", i have just realised how poorly done this drama is (plot/ character wise). my view on the war between SMY and ZGL still stand, the three kingdoms does it better. i was not at all bored like i was in this drama. and i finally understood the significance of "the dress", and ZGL relationship with SMY. i was emotionally connected to their rivalries after watching that drama. but there are also things shown in this drama that i really really like, like the dynamic in Sima Jia
