In the Five Dynasties and Ten Kingdoms era, young Lu Ping escapes the wicked forces of Shanhai Tower and discovers his spiritual identity in a moment of enlightenment – or rather, his spiritual identities, as he becomes aware of six distinct souls revolving through his being. When Lu later begins to train and grow under his teacher’s masterful guidance, he meets eternal brethren and earns the affection of the young miss Qin along the way. All is going well until a vision reveals his relationship to an unresolved crime in the martial arts world of a decade earlier.

Legend of awakening (or) The Failure of Plot Twists

I don’t normally watch the currently airing dramas but I gave Awakening a try since I have anticipated it for a very long time.There are a lot of good/ bad comments so I am going to give my opinion;

1. Story- The story itself is not very bad, it has its twists and turns. But the execution of the storyline is very poor. It has a very promising start, very interesting till episode 20 or 30 but it suddenly went downhill. Some episodes contain no proper message and they are there just for the sake of dragging the story. I’d say there are too many cliché scenes as well, it was such a huge disappointment.

2. Acting & Chemistry- The casts are not bad but not very outstandingly impressive either. You can see many bad comments about Cheng Xiao , I’d say I like Cheng Xiao as an actress, the acting is not that mediocre but her character in the story is not very likeable.
The main problem is the lack of chemistry. Chemistry between (Lu Ping) Chen Feiyu and (Qin Sang) Cheng Xiao? No.
Chemistry between Xifan and Ling ZiYan? No
I couldn’t feel any emotional love between these two pairs. Su Tang and Mo Lin are not bad tho.

3.Who is the real villain?
It is where the twist failed. I can understand ,the director wanted to surprise us by telling us that the villain is not who we guessed before, but it failed. It failed to the point that I lost focus. One villain killed ML’s parents and another villain is gonna destroy the world, who should ML choose? Just suicide lol

4.Character-in- depth
Su Tang, portrayed as ML’s younger sister, lacks character background. We don’t know who she is or where she comes from, I thought the Director is going to surprise as by telling us that her parents are someone powerful? But, no.

The songs are very good.

6. Overall
I fast forwarded a lot of scenes for the sake of completing it. It was a disappointment since it could have been done much better. I kinda regret that I wasted my whole month for this drama.

So I started this show having whatsoever low expectations, and I am glad to say that I actually really enjoyed the show! I’ve seen some pretty negative comments/reviews regarding the show plot and acting. But I actually thought the acting and writing was great!

So the story may not be the best of the best and some parts were a bit cliche, but overall the premise and development of the story was really interesting. There were lots of nice twist and turns that kept me engaged to the show and wanting to see more. I really liked the nice pacing of the story, I felt like it really gave time for the audience to digest the information and emotions embroiled in the show. There was also really good comedy that kept me entertained along the way. Overall, I’d say I’m really glad I watched and discovered the show!

Okay so I have seen so many negative reviews on the acting, particularly criticizing the female lead. But in my personal opinion (PERSONAL) I thought the acting was great! I feel like both lead conveyed the story excellently, and I really felt the emotions. The acting my not be top top notch, but I feel like the actors did an amazing job portraying the characters. I gave the acting 10/10 because I really felt in my opinion that it was really good. Many may not agree but this is just my take on the aspect of the show.

The music was really nice and catchy, I don’t have a lot of opinion on music so I’ll just say that I enjoyed it!

Rewards Value
I’d probably rematch a few episodes of it, not all since it’s pretty long but there were pretty good episodes I’d love to watch again.

10/10 I recommend you try this show out. It may not be your cup of tea, but you should really give it a try if you live watching historical c-dramas filled with action, fantasy, and romance. HAPPY WATCHING!!!!
