Talk about plot twister. From beginning, you'll love the romance; then you are brought along a roller coaster ride through all the plots of a typical Chinese drama. You will go through love, hate, action, tears, and frustration but it's not all overboard. It definitely is entertaining. Good story. In the end I fell in love with the 2nd lead actor, Wan Si Wei. I watched it without English sub so some of the contents were lost but the overall understanding of the story is there. I am more of a Romantic Comedy type, so I could not binge on this drama; but it was worthy enough to finish it and recommend it for others to watch. Definitely a creative genuine classic Cdrama.

A typical college romance entwined with table tennis competition and a crime mystery. There were some humor, cute love and frustrating female antagonizing troublemaker. The story keeps the viewer entertained, binge worthy but I would have to say that's it. It's not something I would re-watch. I was a bit disappointed with the last episode. It seemed to have lost it's momentum and wrapped up in a sweep but it's a good drama to keep you entertained. I did not like the harsh hot tempered depicted by the male lead; it didn't seem to be a charm that would keep a girl fall in love.

Those who are strong on equal rights for women may feel insulted but this is about a young immature girl whose first love has taught her to grow into a mature female who realizes her feelings of love. The male who lived his live too focus on his dream ambition wearing side blinders and how he slowly melted away by his unconscious love for his first love. Their 10 years age gap was played out well by the two leads.
A cute romantic drama with lots of humor. The romance runs parallel with exciting competition teamed with life events, love, teamwork, forgiveness, understanding, and self enlightenment. I felt myself emotional caught up in their competitions and strategies. There is no dramatic second lead unrequited love, thank goodness. The actors are great; all have the right chemistry together. There were not much flashbacks until the last two episodes. Still, it's definitely a re-watch, binge worthy drama. I have to say I was dragging the drama longing because I did not want it to end. This is definitely worth another season as they move on to the next journey in their competition.

The story is creatively interesting. There were parts regarding the 2nd lead love story that almost had me stop watching this drama but I fast forward those scenes instead. The main lead couple did a good job, the double gender role played by the female lead was believable. Humor is scarce but I love Mr Tong's question regarding Tong Tong's best friend's skirt; it's been something I kept asking in both Cdrama and Kdrama. Shi Ming Ze is young but he has the looks and potential for many more main lead dramas. He looks like young Lee Min Ho; beautiful eyes that kept me to this drama. The ending is a total unexpected surprise.

Ha Seok-Jin did a wonderful job portraying an arrogantly stubborn and powerfully rich grandson gradually showing his inner soft side. Adding chemistry to this couple relationship, Jeon So-Min balanced her school teacher stern character with a touch of sweet cuteness without any nauseating effects that draws and counters Ha Seok-Jin 's character. It was an enjoyment to watch the rapport between them which caused quite a few crackle of laughter from me. It was also nice to see a story where both lead characters were not weak to evil plots and as such, these plots were not frustratingly annoying since the two leads were not ignorant and stupid. The story did not end abruptly to leave the audience with their imagination for a "happily ever after." The writer and director took the time to show how they lived happily ever after; a wise decision on their part to allot a budget to spend on the conclusion which most stories failed to do so. A true romantic comedy with a well balanced "a little of everything" that will leave the audience satisfied.

I've liked Huang Jingyu from Moonlight and Valentine. I was tempted to watch Addicted but didn't get pass the 2nd episode and dropped the drama more or less due to the fact that I was not interested in BL. I decided to watch Untamed for the cinematography/costume and was moved by the BL in that series. Out of curiosity, I decided to give Addicted a second chance (good decision) and I was disappointed that I was out in limbo because the series didn't have a second part. So I read the English translation (thank you to the translators) of the novel and reading it again. The characters from the drama and their personality played out in my mind as I read the novel. Great actors that depicted the characters in the novel. It's a great loss that China banned such dramas about homosexuality; the essence of the novel is lost in the drama but still is great because the story has the structure as in the novel. Going back to re-watch the drama after reading the novel will increase another level of appreciation.

The story started scattered and a bit hard to follow as there were many characters introduced with loose connections. I felt like I was dropped into the middle of scattered pieces and had to pick up pieces as I go along. So the first few episodes were not that attention grabbing. As the pieces are fit together the story starts to get interesting and the romance gets more involved. There are two other secondary romances and a few bromances too. As lead male and lead female struggles through their career, you not only get involved with their personal lives, you also experience the excitement of the competition in the virtual game world. The last two episode had me on the edge of my chair and wanting more at the end. The story has similarity with Go Go Squid but different in many levels too. It does not have as many cute romantic moments as GGS but as the story picks up, the lacking is not a disappointment. Binging starts in the latter half of the drama and it's a re-watch somewhere in the future.

The drama is binge worthy and re-watch quality. There are some slow moments but it is balanced with some utterly exciting climatic moments. Fight scenes were great; love the special power and all the special effects. The story is great to follow and the actors did a wonderful job. Although there was a moment where the extra fighters in the background stood lazily instead of putting a life and death effort; it was a laugh out loud joke. The ending is what you would expect, baiting, not disappointing, since there is a second season.

This drama has climactic episodes! I had to pause to satisfy some intense excitement. I've read some comments It's about love's trial and tribulation. The plots build on one after another. No fast forwarding. The flash-backs were kept to the minimal, where at some points it helps to have the playbacks. There are a few good songs and satisfying ending to the story. This drama follows the Heavy Sweetness, Ash-like Frost in similar ways but not the same story. The ending is satisfying. Definitely a re-watch.

The story is interesting but does not have the depth to make it binge worthy. The acting is mediocre, choppy, may be the directing issue. The costume and make-up was disappointing; it seems like they have used the 1990's technology and skills to craft the wigs and use of cosmetics. I got turned off by the huge herpes sore on the lead actress's lip and I dreaded any kissing scenes like the plague. So the romance was a pause for me. The ending was interesting and attention grabbing; it was an ending that gives you the three dots...

I had difficulty getting passed the first few episodes. After that, the story gets interesting and keeps moving. Some of the theme and characters are similar to Ten Miles of Peach Blossoms but it is definitely different. I find the male lead unattractive and clumsy; this is the first work I've seen of the actor so maybe that's the character but it not the omnipotent God of War. Beyond the cons of the lead male character, the drama made up for it with pros of great cinematography and CGI characters. I enjoyed the humor and the second/third leads love story. The story is paced well and evenly where I did not feel dragged down at any one part.

Not my cup of tea.

So far, the story is choppy and slow. The male lead, a good actor, is scripted to be lifeless and thus seems to have the whole cast on monotone. I hate it when the sense of logic is missing and that is so with the female lead. The introduction of characters are a bit hard to follow because they are dropped into the scene out of nowhere. I have a hard time keeping my interest and at some points fast forward some scene to close in on the final episode. I am hoping that it will pick up some momentum soon. Disappointing since I like the male lead actor. On the brighter note, the cinematography is good and the story's core is interesting. The story starts getting interesting around episode 34 as it moves pass the monotonous hump. Though more characters are introduced, their relationships gets tied together giving each of the previous characters more personality. At this point, you will get over the stupidity of the female lead. Flash backs are a waste of my time but in this case, some of these flash backs are helpful.
FINAL REVIEW:
For starter, I am a fan of romantic comedy and this drama is melodramatic. The drama starts out interesting as anything wuxia drama does. Then it slows to monotone matching the male lead illness but brings down all the other characters to mundane. Then new characters starts dropping in out of nowhere and it made it hard to follow whose who. If you feel the same as I do and you can survive through to episode 34, the story starts to pick up but only for 10-15 episodes and then it starts to go down hill. It would have help if they had sprinkle some humor here and there to lightened up the melancholy. I hate it when the drama loses it's sense of logic and reasoning. I also hate it when they use back flashes to fill in and extend episodes. This drama has both of what I hate; although the back flashes doesn't get out of hand until the last 10 or so episodes. I was not satisfied with the 2nd female leads demise or how the 2nd lead male handled his invaded self. It was a mental and physical rape he suffered and that should have generated ravage rage but all that to stir up the audience just end with a slap on the hand. I endured the drama up to episode 53 and then started fast forwarding the rest of the episodes to get to the end just so I can have closure for the time spent on these 56 episodes. Definitely, not my cup of tea because it lacks a bit of humor to lightened up the melancholy.

The trailer showing the rooftop first fight/meet attracted my attention but the synopsis stopped me from watching. Being a romantic comedy type, I did not think this drama would be my type. With nothing else to watch, I decided to read the reviews and came across one review that rated the drama 10 and mentioned the romance and comedy in it. So I decided to give it a try. The "bromance" is more of a camaraderie relationship between the two male lead and a secondary relationship with his brother. Their love, trust and support for each other through life, death, and betrayal. It is definitely a Wuxia romance of the two cultivators. There are quite a few bloody scenes; dark sorcery; sibling love/hate; and humorous scenes. Some parts were a bit drawn out and some unnecessary. The sceneries and music were good. Overall, this drama is interest and worth the time spent. I can't get enough of the two lead actors interacting with each other; it's a beautiful camaraderie between the two and one with his brother. I binged through the series and would make a rewatch for the future.

The drama started out interesting then a mid point it starts to feel like a teen drama. The dialog and story line starts losing common sense and logic. The acting is passing for a drama that feels more like a canned soap opera. He Mei, the female lead antagonist is a below average actress and definitely not one to keep the viewers' interest. I have already begin the fast forwarding mode just to get to the end of this drama; it would be a waste of my time to drop at episode 29 and a waste of my time to keep watching since I've lost interest. I've seen the lead actress in other drama and she is pretty much the same. The two lead male actors are good and I may want to see more of their future performance.

The romance grows on you.

As of episode 7, this drama is similar to the movie Overboard with Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell. What is fascinating is the two main actors are speaking in different languages (Korean and Mandarin) and they worked well together to a point where I do not see a language barrier. A few others also interacted well together in the two languages. I am staying on to see how their relationship grows together. Getting pass the language differences, the interaction between the actors flowed well, and there is definitely chemistry between the two leads. There is also humour that helps. The music is definitely background that does not drown the dialog. Zou Mi looks like a cross between Choi Siwon, Ji ChangWook , and Lee MinHo; and his actor is great. I wonder why he is not in more dramas; I would love to see him in Korean or Chinese drama currently. I am going to binge on this drama. Great ending BTW.
Update: Dramavery has the mandarin voice over for the Korean speaking parts.
