Cast & Credits
I like the cast very much. I feel like the main characters had a excellent chemistry. Both of the male leaders portrayed their characters very well. And Xin Yue was also great.
I also enjoyed the music. At first, I didn't like the Bai Tou Yin by Della Ding as the music was a bit odd. But you grow to like the two songs by her as they play throughout the whole drama. Also, the opening song is also very nice and has really meaningful lyrics. Definitely a 10 from me!
Actually, I have rewatched this drama two times, and every single time I just couldn't stop watching. Even though I already seen it before. It is just so good.
Overall, I think they have made an excellent drama! I feel like the clothing and scenery was quite nice. I definitely recommend this one to everyone that loves for example Prince of Lan Ling, which is also one of my favorite drama.
Storyline? I liked it and the action and story developed well through all the many episodes - many times I felt like I was in the female lead's role and agonising over all the ups and downs and loving it all........until the final episode, when I felt it was a bit of a letdown. I'd like to request the writer/author/director to review the story and re-do it in a much better way, keep all the viewers happy!
I particularly liked the explanations of the plot coming through as "thoughts"in the actor's heads, which are helpful to those like me who don't really have much of a concept of ancient Chinese history or culture, and who really got lost sometimes along the way, due to archaic Chinese sayings etc that needed explaining.
Anyway, this is a good drama and I'd recommend it - the 36 episodes will go by in a jiffy and you won't notice the time as you follow the twists and turns along the way.
