When the lead actor is also the benefactor funding the whole shoot, and he's hysterically changing the script to fulfil his dream of being a hero in various costumes, things are bound to get a little out of control. The humble yet stubborn screenwriter is powerless to resist the demands of the show's investor who wants to be the male lead in every conceivable story. As a result, the plot is haywire, and characer building is a fail. From palace fights and suspense to xianxia and time travel, it's a melting pot of costume dramas. With everyone thinking that they're witnessing a farce, you'll find that beneath it all is an actor's unrestrained pursuit for redemption and for his dreams.

Clever Spoof on C-dramas. Ep 22-23 is the best!

I probably only have 1 % interest in short dramas as I enjoy slow burn development but this one is hilarious! Its explores on all the standard custom c-drama tropes so if you watched enough of them you'll identify the scenes.

The starting scene: A crew shooting a costume drama but due to the female lead missing they used a stand in with a green face. Producer/ML actor yells cut !! and that's how the story begins. He keeps telling the screen writer to change the story and 9 FL later....... you pretty much will see a hot mess of all drama tropes. The best episodes are where the screen writer gets more lines and tells him what to do. (ep 22-23).

For such a short drama, I was surprised that the acting was pretty good. All 9 FL are beautiful and can act better than some well known actresses. The ML was definitely funny and his makeup going from a white idol skin face to a brown assassin face made me laugh so hard.

The only down side is that I heard there are 2 more stories (~6 ep) that didn't pass censorship. Such a shame because I would love to watch more!
