loved everything about it except ending

In the last few episodes, they showed all happy moments then I understood something bad is going to happen in the ending, as expected I didn't like the last two episodes. The last two episodes ruined my overall experience of watching this show, felt like 15hrs that invested in this show went waste. I was too involved in drama throughout, maybe that's why I feel this much disappointment. I absolutely loved all characters, that's why the last two episodes were like hell for me. goshhh i wish I could change that part of the story.

anyways for talking about positives, ML is super cute, the characters that you may dislike in the beginning will make you fall in love with them eventually. people who just watch for entertainment and don't get much involved in the story can enjoy this show as one time watch.

I know no writer or director is going to consider my review but still wanna mention that 90% of the audience like happy endings. for god's sake don't play with audience emotions towards the end of the show. many awesome fantasy dramas keep us involved in the story but breaks our heart towards the end, I know for writers its creative work, and they have their own imagination and understanding of the story and what they want to deliver to the audience but we would appreciate if they keep in mind that we watch dramas/shows for entertainment, so please don't spoil endings for us, just let us leave with a smile of our face after finishing watching it. don't ruin our overall experience with overdramatic endings.

Wang Youshuo Looks Absolutely Stunning

"Dear Mr. Heavenly Fox" revolves around the legendary heavenly fox, Bichuan (played by Lu Xiaoyu, aka Rain Lu), who falls in love with Lingzi (Wang Youshuo), a spirit man destined for sacrifice to save the world. To prevent her beloved from being sacrificed, the fox crashes into the sacrificial mountain, sacrificing herself in the process. This act unleashes evil spirits, and Lingzi takes it upon himself to seal the lord of evil, sustaining fatal injuries and a broken heart in the process. He vows to be reborn as a fox in his next life and love her forever.

In this life, Wang Youshuo's character, Zhang Yue, is born as a fox, while Lu Xiaoyu's character, Qi Yuanbao, is the Lingzi, a spirited child, carrying an evil spirit within her. The playful and mischievous Qi Yuanbao, along with her cousin brother Xue Hanyu (Zhou Zhaoyuan), engages in street fights and causes trouble. Many viewers are upset that Lu Xiaoyu is not pretty enough to play the role but I find her portrayal is truly convincing, and I think the casting directors made a great choice because in the story, Qi Yuanbao is said to have a common appearance, with someone even calling her ugly.

One day, Qi Yuanbao accidentally stumbles upon a forbidden place and encounters the heavenly fox Zhang Yue, who is cultivating there. By mistake, she consumes the spirit fruit that Zhang Yue is nurturing with his soul. To retrieve his soul, Zhang Yue follows Qi Yuanbao to the human world and becomes her teacher.

Zhang Yue's striking good looks and suave demeanor attract numerous admirers, including Qi Yuanbao, who falls deeply in love with him. Though initially embarrassed by her forwardness, Zhang Yue can't help but feel a connection with her and eventually falls for her. As the story unfolds, he becomes her protector and willingly sacrifices himself for her. Wang Youshuo delivers a heart-wrenching performance, truly nailing his role.

Amidst various villains seeking to harness the power of the evil spirit for their own gain, the entire cast portrays their characters convincingly. I was especially impressed with the story of the second couple, which is filled with bickering and explosive moments.

My Verdict

Although the drama has a cheesy title, the romance between the fox and the human is undeniably intriguing. However, there are some plot holes and instances of poor writing and editing, leading to confusing scenes that lack explanations. Characters facing life-threatening situations sometimes act nonchalantly, which seems illogical. Additionally, the dubbing doesn't always match the characters' mouth movements, creating a disconnect between audio and visuals.

The drama does end with a twist that results in the demise of beloved characters, followed by an abrupt resurrection scene, which feels somewhat bizarre. Perhaps to appease some viewers, a bonus episode with an alternative ending was added. Despite these shortcomings, "Dear Mr. Heavenly Fox" remains a highly enjoyable drama, especially thanks to the mesmerizing portrayal of the heavenly fox by Wang Youshuo. Overall, I would recommend giving it a watch!
