Intriguing opener but terrible plot development

Mainly going to review the plot because the other components (acting/cast and music) were great.

I really liked how the story was captivating from the start (different from typical C-drama openers) and there was always a new story or goal for at least one of the characters/pairs. However, the plot did dragged in the middle because there's a lot of couples and the drama goes into each couple's story at some point. Each character/couple's "story" refers to their romantic lives, family relationships, AND work/jobs, so you can probably see why this drama ends up at 50 episodes... They also introduced a few new minor characters in the middle, which gave a nice break from the main characters' endless stories but also meant there's someone else's story to follow now.

IMO, the drama would have been more interesting if they expanded on Mowgli's adapting to civilization and the FL helping him adjust because that was what intrigued me the most. And it's not that I didn't enjoy the other couples, but if they only focused on one or two primary couples like most dramas do, then the drama could have ended wonderfully at the typical 20 or so episodes. Also worth mentioning that the story went downhill in the end, everything became super unrealistic and the ending was just unsatisfactory and weird. There was a lot of potential with this novel story but it didn't turn out for me.

Overall, it was still a good watch to kill time, but not amazing enough to get you hooked and waiting anxiously for the next episodes to come out. If I rewatched, I'd probably watch the first half of the drama again and stop there.

This review may contain spoilers
When I started watching this show I was quite hooked into it because it was mysterious, 2 worlds merging, random guy appearing from the forest y'know? But then as I continued felt like the overall drama was made too long with unnecessary episodes and lots of things didn't make sense in it.

Story: "My Mowgli Boy" is about a celebrity named Ling Xi who one day accidentally brings home a wild man who she later named Mo Geli. Mo Geli becomes an important part of her life and supports her through the high and lows.
I think that the plot of the drama is a really good idea because it's so mysterious. It might just be me but as I got around the middle of the drama, I started getting tired of the main couple, maybe because there wasn't enough happening around them because the scenes of them are usually just talking. Due to that I started getting more and more interested in the support couples Tang Cheng and Lu Ziyue, and Chu Shi and Ling Yu. Tang Cheng and Lu Ziyue were my favourite couple because their scenes were actually interesting, they are 2 different people and with very different interests and personalities but still managed so get together, and Chu Shi and Ling Yu seemed like forbidden love because they have to be pulled apart by Ling Yu's family problems. Overall Ling Yu's life seems to be really complicated and sad.
I really didn't like Mo Geli as a character, because he always seems to not trust Ling Xi enough even though she has said that she would really like to share the happy and sad with him. Mo Geli is always disappearing and is always leaving Ling Xi disappointed.
The ending was honestly what disappointed me the most because the last episodes (50) honestly wasn't explaining what was happening clearly. Once again, Mo Geli disappears without a word while Ling Xi is stuck worrying. I was getting really annoyed at Mo Geli by this point, Ling Xi has already said that she wants to solve his problems with him instead of him not telling her and solving it all by himself. At the end I had no idea what was happening, Ling Xi is just by the river when suddenly Mo Geli appears in front of her with the ring. Even now I have no idea if that was Ling Xi's imagination or if he was really there.

Acting/Cast:
The cast was chosen really well because all the actors seemed to have a appearance similar to their character personalities. Yang Zi really hit me emotionally when she cried, she always performs her character so well. I felt that Ma Tianyu was a little bit stiff at first but then he warmed up in the end.

Music:
The music was alright.

Rewatch value:
I personally think that the drama is too long with to much unnecessary so I don't think I will rewatch it. Plus the drama didn't make any sense in the end and I still don't know if Mo Geli came back or not because it could just be Ling Xi's imagination.

Overall, I think that the plots with the other characters were quite interesting, while the lead couple was confusing. I hope Ling Xi and Mo Geli did get together at the end, but judging by how Mo Geli is always disappearing with unexplained reasons, probably not.
