The Scenery was Beautiful!

I rewatch and the ending was not very ending! I don't know if Sect Leader Li and Zhao Yao did come together at the end. When they were walking around and she said something about sealing the Wajun sword... I thought... yeah they are together. But not sure. The storyline throughout this whole drama series was great. Bai Lu has acting skills for sure. Her portrayal of Zhao Yao was very good, I mean really good. Xu Kal also took his character with his personality in making the character his own and very convincing. I applaud the two.

I loved the visual arts, cinematography, storyline, romance, drama, and want to thank the main leads and supporting cast, the Directors and the rest of the team of "The Legends" for this piece. The Chemistry between Xu Kai and Bai Lu was a match. I want to see more of these two in other movies or drama series.

Did see most of the behind scenes and you can see that Xu Kai is serious in the projects he is working on. Although, I'm glad to see him be playful at times.

NOTE: The rumors about Xu Kai are just rumors... I'm not going to believe the nonsense.

Everything was great about this drama series. The storyline had its ups and downs but it was consistent and stayed true to the story being told. Martial arts visual effects were on point. The costumes were not overly done but perfect for that time era. The romance chemistry was there between the actors and actresses. Huang Xiao Ming who played Xiao-Ping Zhang was strong, very strong, I wished he would've not been killed so early., but it is what it is. Liu Haoran who played Xiao Ping Jing, wow, he domineered his role. Wu Hao Chen who played Xiao Yuan Qi, had me hating him if that was the case, he succeeded in playing the role given to him. The Female actress who played across Huang Xiao Ming was very convincing in her role and she brought most of the chemistry. There was a happy ending in this drama which grabbed my heart the most. Thank you to Hai Yan for the writing of this storyline. Thanks to Kong Sheng and Li Xue, the Directors for making the story believable. Thanking the rest of the cast and team, well job done!

Sitting on the Throne is a terrible thing. When the family is young, it's #familyisallwegot Then when they get of age they all fight for the throne. I really do not like that concept but that is the way it was back decades ago. My favorite two actresses in this piece were believable so kudos to them. "Hu Bingqing" and "Ady AN" thank you, I applaud you with your great acting skills. There is one actress, I don't really care for because I watched her in "Legend of Fuyao", there is just something about her I'm not impressed with. Her character in Legend of Fuyao was the same as in this drama playing Dugu Montuo (Li Yixiao), I felt she jumped out of Legend Fuyao and landed in Legend of Dugu! The storyline was okay... not something that I would get goosebumps over but it was workable. The switching of hubby's got to me. None of them ended with a person they truly loved. They all got played by the females. I loved the bad guy in this Drama series, Jeremy Tsui, I saw him in another Drama where he played a good guy and he does bring his personality charm to making this character different so thanking him. The other character I loved was Yang Gian. I love the costumes, the music was okay, and the visual effects. The one piece I really loved was the Sword dance displayed by HuBingqing and Zhang Danfeng (my favorite). Thanking all of the remaining and supporting cast for their work and participation in this drama.

I did not like the storyline at all. The writers made the two main leads fall over the mountain in love and then when he goes to war and comes back winning the war... the circus queen wants to marry the Emperor! I stopped watching it. I went all the way to the end to see if they even get back together but it didn't look like they did... Well, episode 41 is not showing yet so I still have to see. This was a love-hate and switch partners... I'm so disappointed. I don't know what the writers were thinking of. This story had so many flaws, they should've stayed with the circus acts. HATED IT!

It had an okay storyline but it surely was long. Thank God it was on YouTube! Let me start with the cast
Chen Xiao who played Shen Xing Yi, he played this part very well! I believe he deserved a 10 and should've been given a nomination or an award. I understand this drama had so many characters and they all played their part very well. There was a lot of mystery and you have to guess who did what and when. I wished they had more martial arts Kung Fu but they didn't. I didn't feel the chemistry in the romance, um, well it was just one-sided with Shen Xingyi I felt that he had chemistry with his character. I didn't like the sad ending. I wished it was a Happy Ending for him. Oh well, that's the way the cookie crumbles. I want to know more about Chen Xiao.

It was interesting. I saw a lot of blood (fake) thank God. The storyline was pretty heavy for this time period. The visual effects were pretty good except the under the water scene in the last few episodes. A lot of battles and a lot of I like you going on. The Martial Arts effects were awesome. I feel all the cast did great in this drama. It didn't really get to me on the romance or chemistry. Why do women in this era, when they have desires for a man and that man has someone already in his heart want to kill that woman? I don't get it. Doesn't that happen in the present day too? I was actually bored in those scenes. Although, I am happy for the happy ending. Thank you for that one.

This Drama Series, I believe is the best I've seen that the two Main Characters portrayed an emotion called "Agape Love". Thanks to Ethan Juan and Yang Mi, these two leads and two of my top 10 actors and actress, made this believable. The chemistry between Ethan Juan and Yang Mi was outstanding. The cast, the main leads, the extra cast made this an epic storyline from the beginning episode to the ending episode. My emotions really ran high in this one to anger, to sad, to joy, then balling my eyes out. The music didn't help at all! What I mean is the music for this drama piece made my emotions high and low. What great music for my ears! Ethan Juan and Yang Mi made this story as if it were a true story. Unbelievable!

I want to thank all the cast, the producers, the directors, the visual effects, the musicians and music creators, the makeup artists, the costumes... All of it! I give you your due respect! Awesome!

I want to thank the screenwriters for bringing awareness to rape.

I think I already wrote a review for this already, but don't see it.

Luo Lin, Tiffany Tang. Yu Jiwei and Wang Tianchen were my favorites in this storyline. I don't understand why folks out there are rating this a 7... My focus was on this storyline. Has anyone ever felt a been there and done that when watching dramas? I already love Luo Lin and Tiffany Tang but I was awed by the actor Yu Jiwei who played Ning Ming. The emotions of Luo Lin made my emotions appear. Tiffany held it together when Luo became very emotional, I applaud her strength, after all, that is her husband in the real world. Writers did a great job! Thanking all the cast of making this story believable on screen.

The Awareness of Domestic Violence.

Again, Yang Mi is one of my favorite actresses. This story when it begins is slow but really gets moving after the 5th episode. I don't have anything bad to say about Yang Mi because she does her thing. The only thing that I didn't comprehend in this project is the low points. I didn't like how the writer kept Qiao Fei always doubting herself and not having enough confidence. Yang Mi always plays a very strong woman in her projects but not being depressed in almost half of the episodes so I knocked off 1 point off the storyline. I'm glad they reunited in the last episode. I love Huang Xuan in this storyline. Huang Xuan really looks different in this drama versus The Legend of Mi Yue or The Imperial Doctress. The visual effects were okay, I won't complain. I'm wondering if there will be a Season 2. I don't understand why Vengo Gao is listed in a Supporting role on MDL when he was in almost all of the episodes, what a great actor he is.

The one thing is I applaud the writers for the Awareness of "Domestic Violence". I fight against DV every single day in Colorado USA. Yang Mi's character stated not in the exact words but What is more important, your business or the safety of a Human Life? My Quote: Being Silent can get someone killed or injured for life! Thank you so much!

Thanking all teams for this Interpreter project.

It is outright astounding and brilliant, too.

The story line with the present day was brilliant! I have a question for the Hair Team, was that Raymond Lam's real hair at the last episode? Anyways, The story line didn't go back n forth as some do. I did take a point off of the story line rating because you had Tina Tang play DongG kind of wavering at times in the characters personality. If I could have another kid I would name him "Daišan", love that name. The costumes helped me get into the characters for that era, which is very good. I didn't notice any background music to busy being focused on the story line but still rate it at 8. I loved the other characters of the 3 brothers but then I saw Qu Chu Xiao towards the end, he is one of my fav actors. Those eyes of his... unt uh uh. Thank you Rule the World team for a marvelous Drama Series.

William Chan, I applaud you!

I need to thank the writer(s) on bringing awareness to Drugs and how drugs are exported in and out of countries. Thank You! A lot of people do not realize that the drug "Angel" does exist in this world. I've known it to be called "Angel Dust" or PCP. I hope that we can stop those who create these drugs and eradicate the existence of hallucinogenic drugs that possibly can eliminate Human Life.

William Chan, portrayed his character as I knew he would. His talents over exceeds himself. People when you watch this I guarantee you that you will need, tissue or handkerchief because you will need it. William Chan plays a very believable part of the character he is portraying. I just recently re-watched "Lost Love in Times" and comparing the two characters being played are so different from one another. For me that means William Chan does put himself and his persona into these characters but yet make them so different. Kudos to this awesome actor and one of my top ten favs.

Man, where do I start with the cast. The whole cast did their part in playing the characters in this drama. A'se is one that I had to do my research on. I applaud his acting skills playing this character. The chemistry between Sandra Ma and William Chun was kind of iffy for me but it worked for this story line. Every movie or drama series has low point(s) and the low points of this Drama Series was not many but made it's point across the stage making my emotions flare in anger, joy, and tears. That's how great the cast was. Thanking all the cast, visual effects, writer(s), Producer(s), make-up, and costumes team. Very job well done.

I have watched this 4 times now and each time I watch it, I would hope for it to continue on. William Chan is amazing playing Yuan Ling. WC put his ALL in this character. Cecilia Liu was also amazing. I would love to see more of her acting abilities. With the many episodes it has, it kept me focused to watch all of it. The Visual effects were perfect especially the butterflies. The visual actions of the martial arts with sword fighting were phenomenal. I would love to see more of this type of Fantasy, Romance, Drama. The Romance part of the two main characters had great chemistry. I love the hair braid crowns of the Mages! Kudos to whoever designed them. I want to thank the Writers for a great Drama Series Rao Jun, Han Peizhen, Shi Siye, Chen Wenjuan Dong XinruI also want to thank the producers Lin Yufen, Liang Shengquan, Yu Cuihua, Ren Haitao. Thanking style director William Chang, costume designer Fang Sizhe, and artistic director Chen Haozh including the visual effects team, music, and the rest of the cast. What a great drama series! Loved It!

This was a fantastic story line except that I took .5 point off because of his servant. Again, I will not give details out. You have to watch it for yourself. I love how the lead character played by Chen Fei Yu took care and protected her wholeheartedly. The maid-servant played by Song Yi Ren, is the most important character for me in this drama series. There are planning for a 2nd Part to this but Chen Fei Yu is not coming back because he has other priorities. That is sad because he did a fantastic job with this character. The visual effects were awesome! Thank you to the rest of the cast, music, producers, writer(s) and the producers. Loved it.

I love how these stories portray men to protect their woman! Life contains good and evil in all aspects of life. I also love how the writers of this drama combat evils or demons. Lee Joon Gi was great in this Drama Series, he showed passion, emotions, and brought his martial arts to the screen. I love this actor's acting abilities. His main lady lead Shin Ma Ah also is awesome in her acting skills as well. Lee Joon Gi is on my Favorite Actors list so what I need to say about him it is already listed. I want to thank the writer(s), producers, visual effects, musicians, music scores, and the rest of the cast for an outstanding job.

The storyline was great. I was very happy with the happy ending! It's too bad that almost every character who had loved one was killed. This Drama series really attacked the Fathers in this one. I knocked a half point for that reason. That was the only thing that I felt was wrong with this drama series. LJK was right on point with this character and always made it his own. Nam Sang Mi also played her part very well. I did feel somewhat of a little chemistry between the two leads. The Martial Arts were outstanding. Thank you to all the cast, writer(s), directors, music, and the rest of the team for this project.

Note: Does anyone notice the bounce in Lee Joon Qi's walk. lol. His eyes and that walk are his signatures!
