NOTE: I didn't watch the webtoon so I'm solely reviewing the drama without any knowledge of how the webtoon story went.

I enjoyed the 1st season a lot more than the 2nd right off the bat. The 1st one seemed a lot more interesting to watch and had more depth to it. This season kind of seemed like the typical "let me down" second season. The plot felt slightly brushed over? It wasn't as developed as the 1st season was but still had some qualities that were enjoyable about the 1st one. I think the ending left off on a sweeter note than I expected too (so if you're into a sweet one, try watching it). The actors were the same except the dramatics between Simba and his constant chasing after Shiya situation. My heart was tugged at just as much in this season as the 1st, which is throughly enjoyable and sad at the same time. I wouldn't watch this season again though. It lacked the things from S1 that I enjoyed so much about the series. It seemed to be the extra fat from S1 that was kept on. Overall, a good series.

You do not need to read the webtoon before watching but you do need to watch season 1 before watching season 2 as it’s linked.

Season 1 was light but season 2 is slightly heavier. It has more scenes that make you sit on the edge and make you wonder what will happen next. But there are a few loop holes (if you are able to notice) here and there.

As I read the webtoon before watching so I am hoping for a different ending like an extension of the webtoon while still keeping the main point. But sadly, the drama is not an extension of the webtoon but they did keep the main points. There are some scene that are different from the webtoon and of course there are similarities. Especially the building that they stay in! I was shock when I saw how similar it looked like and I was thinking if the webtoon artist took that place as an inspiration. Well done drama crew! ????????

Season one was light, cute and fluffy but as I watched Season two, I felt that it takes a dark route. I enjoyed the story but when it went all killing and poisons I didn't like those parts.

I felt that the lead actress wasn't at her best and that her male lead was picking up the slack and I also didn't like the way Simba turned out but I loved that Shihuan stayed by his side even when Simba didn't deserve his loyalty or friendship. I also felt like Shihuan felt something more than "just friends" but who knows. Lastly, the woman that was literally stalking Junhe was sooooo annoying, honestly I don't even know how I held it together whenever she was onscreen.

I loved the OST.
Because of the reasons I've listed I would not rewatch this season but possibly season one. Great for those who love romance mixed with fantasy/supernatural and a bit of dark stuff.

Can I just say this show is top notch? Like A-Plus. I’m not used to fantasy and etc but I love a good vampire story as cheesy as it sounds and this was just so cute. I’m also glad both seasons are on Viki because ooowee, I would’ve been racking my brain looking for it. At first I was like wow this is cheesy but the chemistry between the two characters is nice, Simba is kind of annoying and yes, the 2nd season was an addition but it’s for the fans that didn’t want the 1st season to end and continue the webtoon and even though it strays I like it because it is its own twist. I love the family, I love the relationship, I love the fluff and how he fell in love and they did not change but adapted to one another for love. Definitely recommend watching this show. It’s worth it, even if there is mixed reviews, I loved every cheesy scene and kissing scene between the two and how the main male lead is so adamant for this relationship, also that it took the female lead a while to fall. I loved that the 1st season was fluff and the 2nd season pulled on my heartstrings and made my eyes dabble with some tears because that’s how you know it’s good, and boy, is it good. Watch this!

This review may contain spoilers
There was a lot to like about the first season of this Chinese show about vampire Li Shi Ya (Zhang Yu Xi) and her love affair with tasty human Jiang Zhi Hao (Xing Zhao Lin) - despite the wooden acting, awful dubbing and overall cheapness.

Season 2, however, throws most of this goodwill away with a terminal case of noble idiocy from which it never recovers.

I have never read the Manwha Untouchable so don't know how much of this plotline is based on the source text. A lot of the developments in Season 2 felt like retcons - and poorly thought-out ones at that. But in the end, it's the noble idiocy that stakes this through what was left of its heart.

R.I.P.
