Zero Plot, Just Cooking and Singing

Let’s be honest, there is no plot to this 32 episode series. Guy meets girl. They fall in love. They SLOWLY get to their first kiss. Everyone stares at them with adoration. They stare at each other. The end.

This is more of a - let’s just show a lot of good Chinese culture. Chinese dishes, Chinese clothes, Chinese music, Chinese tourist attractions. Bring in some good looking people, have them eat together and make it 32 hours.

This huge cast of actors did absolutely NOTHING. How much teasing can they give the main couple? How long must the FL act 12 and shy every single time she’s with her boyfriend? What about the side couples? They literally moved slower than a grandpa with broken hips. All the side couples got together in the last 15 mins. They have the main couple way way way too much screen time doing nothing but act cute. I wouldn’t mind if they actually showed some sort of character growth or storyline. If they made it just 12-16 episodes, it would’ve been short and sweet. But y’all.. 32 episodes?! What’s crazier is that I actually made it to the end. I mostly skipped by episode 25.

Not My Demon

Listen. Don’t come at me. But this ain’t it.

The storyline is childish and disappointingly lacking. They set up this promising premise of a demon, losing his powers, falling in love, and learning to live as a human. Should be interesting, right? WRONG.

The demon here is an idiotic loverboy who can’t use his brain even after existing for thousands of years. The FL is this gorgeous looking fireball who is supposed to be smart, cunning anf cutthroat. Key words are “supposed to be.” You get an annoyingly weak and pretty FL who does nothing but let the villains get the upperhand while eating cake with her pretty husband. Then, on their free time, they’ll put in some effort to catch the bad guys. SHE HAS A DEMON FOR A HUSBAND AND THEY DIDNT SOLVE ANYTHING OR EVEN SAVE THEMSELVES.

Y’all. The brain cells I lost watching this …

Don’t get me started on the useless side characters. From the overly dramatic and clownish villains, to the side couples, to the office workers and the gang members. They were just fillers to get this to 16 episodes of showing the gorgeous leads. That’s all.

To sum up:
Even on 1.5 speed, I could not wait to finish this damn series. What a joke to the actors. Who wrote this script? A 12 year old Twilight fan?

- What demon? He was a hopeless romantic with a side hustle involving fire.
- what murder mystery? Just crazy people playing with fire.
-What villains? Just cray crays over acting and shitting their pants over nothing.
- What chemistry? Just 2 gorgeous people looking gorgeous while doing gorgeous things together.
-What deep insightful message were we supposed to get out of this? Never trust a Netflix show with pretty people.

BEAUTIFULLY DONE.

This is my first BL drama and it is a life changer. I can never judge a drama by what I assumed I won’t like anymore. Who knew such a beautiful love story existed between two males under such strict censorship by the Chinese government? It is 2022.. 3 years after the drama release and this is still an amazing drama. I’m sad I discovered this so late but better late than never! That being said, I am now obsessed with wuxia BL dramas.

The chemistry between both leads are sensational. You feel the unspoken love just by how they look at one another and the simple touches. All of their scenes together are absolutely breathtaking. The story itself isn’t anything too special but trust me.. watching these two leads will get you hooked. The tenderness in their gazes, the soft words, the simple yet special touches and overall chemistry between both beautiful leads took my breath away. Wang Yi Bo and Zhao Xian were made for the roles of Lan Zhan and Wei Ying. I’ve never seen such handsome males on the screen.

Also.. don’t watch the last 5 minutes of the ending here. Search the special edition online for the actual ending. Due to the censorship, they had to move the order of the scenes around to not show a “happy” ending of the leads being together. The special edition is the actual ending with the satisfying end.

This failed. Miserably.

I can push through a bad story if the acting is decent but for such a bland storyline and HORRENDOUS acting, this is one of the worst drama.

1. Yang Yang’s good looks could not save him. His acting is the same overall- quick delivery, monotone and boring.
2. FL could not act if her life depended on it. Most scenes of her acting naive, innocent, surprised, excited, frustrated etc were of her squinting her face, blowing out air and looking pretty.
3. CRINGY bromance and friendships. All the guys tried too hard and all the girls sounded like 12 year olds trying to be cute… in college.
4. I had to ff some of their romantic scenes bc it was all so predictable and repetitive. He’ll say something flirty, she’ll look surprised, then shy, then flustered and cut scene. The kisses were all him kissing a wall. She could not kiss. Awful.

Watch if you are bored and need a quick drama to kill time. If you like watching bromance and romance in the gaming like world, watch Go Go Squid. If you like Yang yang, watch You Are My Glory.

My Journey to One of the Best Series. Ever.

It’s only 24 episodes. For a Cdrama, that’s only an appetizer, but it’s the main course and dessert wrapped with a cherry on top kind of good.

The storyline and cinematography are enough to pull you in but what really keeps you engaged are the characters and the acting. All the characters are intertwined and you follow them on their incredible journeys of growth and development. It’s all done in an intricate and smart way to keep us invested in all the wonderful characters, no matter how small of a role you may assume they play. The story is fast paced and you can’t catch a breath because it’s so incredibly good. You may think you know a character or where the story is going but they always surprise you with all the twists. You end up wanting to binge all the episodes at once. The visuals and cinematography are STUNNING. It’s dark, gritty, intense and captivating.

The acting. The stellar cast is beyond amazing. Every subtle reaction is incredibly powerful. Every big reaction is riveting. The actors really know how to make impacts with their skills. The director deserves an award. The script writer deserves recognition. This is truly a masterpiece.

Good but not great

Have you seen Extraordinary You? If you haven’t, watch that first... because the first few episodes of this drama basically copied that one. After you get over the fact that the writer blatantly stole another script, you can somewhat enjoy this drama. However, 24 episodes is stretching it. It should have been 16 at the most. It became draggy. The actors did a good job. I enjoyed the main leads. I didn’t care for the side characters.

The story had potential. It was not a typical time travel but more of a travel to a parallel universe. However, it should have focused on the good points of the drama instead of the repetitive scenes. The storyline is not that deep and can be a light show to watch. I don’t have the energy to watch it again.

Call the dentist bc all this sweet stuff is hurting my teeth!

10/10. One of the best series I’ve seen and not just in the BL genre. The storyline is original and the dynamic between the two leads exceeded my expectation. Their chemistry is very natural and all of their intimate moments seem so comfortable and real. The way they shot some of the scenes was so creative (that deep convo they had while walking through the neighborhood). The conversations are very heartfelt and intimate. You’ll be glued to the screen. The visuals of all the characters are out of this world.


The relationship between the leads are very mature and they deal with very serious conflicts not just petty ones. I love the built up to them getting together and once they are together, they’re sweet as ever.

Spoiler!

THE ENDING IS TO DIE FOR. I love that we got to see their married life. Ugh my teeth hurts from all their sweetness.

They promised us nothing

As much as I absolutely adored and enjoyed I Told Sunset About You, this sequel disappointed me.

Frankly, Teh’s insecurities and self doubts from ITSBY never resolved and he became the biggest villain of this sequel. HE NEVER ONCE FOUGHT FOR OH. They broke up because he decided he was bored and wanted something new. He cheated (yes, cheated) He got rejected by his coach and then came back to Oh. Then when they broke up, he dated a woman while claiming to Oh that he’s never forgotten him. WHAT?! So while Oh focused on his career, his life, his confidence and himself, Teh decided to ho around. I honestly would’ve liked it if they didn’t end up together at the end.

Absolute MASTERPIECE.

I’ve never watched two males on the screen with such intriguing allure before. Their chemistry is off the chart and even better than most male/female relationships. The way they speak their love language through the intensity of their eyes, the intricate words and subtle touches- all absolutely beautiful.

Acting: Gong Jun’s best work so far. You feel his pain and the complexity of his character all through his eyes and facial expressions. All of his scenes are truly remarkable. His portrayal of the cunning, playful and remarkable Wen Ke Xing is breathtaking. He is stunning in this drama. I am taken away by how he could easily transition between all these complicated emotions so effortlessly. I am definitely a huge fan, now.

Speaking of, Zhang Zhe Han’s portrayal of the righteous and distinguished Zhou Zhi is enough to last a lifetime. The softness in his eyes and the way he can control the scene with very subtle expressions are amazing. I love how his character develops and the overall story arc.

Storyline: 9/10. Absolutely outstanding. 37 episodes are not enough! We need more!!

2 Dramas in 1

Where do I start?

This drama is a good solid 9/10. The storyline is very interesting and engaging. However, it felt like 2 dramas rolled into 1 with A LOT of characters. The storyline all tied in nicely and kept viewers interested, but at times, you have to take a step back and remind yourself that you’re watching both a martial arts drama and political drama. I think they should have just focused on 1 category and the story would have been good either way.

The Good:
- Storyline: very interesting, very intriguing overall
- Actors: aside from my peeve about the FL being too young for the role, they did a good job overall. (I’ll expand more on this later)
- twists/plot: I love that the ML and FL are both incredibly intelligent and are alway one step ahead of the game. I hate watching dumb characters get manipulated and played on.
- no dumb love triangle: I love that the two leads fall in love and nothing came between them. All the characters were mature this way even if others were interested in the ML/FL, they knew to back down
- mature relationship: no dumb misunderstandings and schemings

The Bad:
- I felt as though the FL is too young looking for this role. Her character is a certified known martial arts leader and she looked 16. It didn’t make any sense. She looked good next to Yang Yang but honestly, you could tell the age difference is a bit off. She acted “tough” in scenes and I felt it was forced.
-Too. Many. Deaths.
- Odd part of ending (happy ending but one weird part, I won’t spoil).
- I wish they had another romance so we can have a second couple. There were so many good looking actors.

SWEET DRAMA WITH NO DRAMA.., OR PLOT

Don’t get me wrong. This is a must watch drama for the beautiful leads and ultra sweet scenes. It’s such a relaxing drama to watch and just enjoy the cuteness. It does lack a plot. It has mostly a compilations of the leads being romantic but the overall story is .. nothing. They go through very short conflicts and because they communicate well, they’re resolved quickly. There are no evil characters or stupid exes. No frustrating love triangles. There are A LOT of Chinese propaganda but it’s expected.

Ridiculous and waste of talent

First of, the main actors made a mistake choosing this script. The storyline is awful. I could not make it to the end. How many times must the FL act like a clingy, cringy and downright embarrassing stalker? It started out refreshing to see the FL taking initiative to pursue the ML but she became pushy, arrogant, and annoying. She basically threw herself at him and was OBSESSED with him. The story was basic, easy to follow and predictable but then it just got boring and draggy. I would not recommend this at all.

Not enough love

Sigh. Where do I start? The amount of potential wasted on this series..

The casting is stellar. You got 3 handsome and ridiculously great male leads. You got 3 great actresses for the female leads. And then you get possibly the most immature and dumb female lead.

- Constant misunderstanding
- ZERO communication, only texting or thought bubbles but nothing exchanged between the leads
- FL is written as an idiot, constantly running from kisses or any potential intimate scenes
-ML has no dimension, none, just the typical cold and emotionless

If you want to watch a series that’s about 2 good looking people in their 30s, who only text each other, but never actually communicating, good luck.

I skipped skipped so many scenes. Such a waste of talent.

DISGUSTING depiction of S/A as romance

Disgusting show romanticizing sexual assault. Not only is the toxic relationship between the leads based on non consensual advances but also petty drama. A homophobe falls in “love” with a gay man but continues to choose to hurt him with demeaning behaviors is considered sexy? Tharn’s “friendship” with the older male who admitted to sexually assaulting him at age 14 is disgusting. The issue was addressed briefly and casually in the show. I stopped at episode 8. Can’t watch anymore. Not worth the time.

Story of how to create a toxic romance

5/10. I’m mad as hell that this type of abusive relationship is romanticized as true love. The plot is weak and got lost along the way.

- FL traveled back in time (same period, not from our future) to correct her evil ambition on becoming queen and the lives she cost doing so. She decided to change her ways. She wanted to right her wrongs and also change the fates of those around her. Sounds like a great plot, right? It is.. if they didn’t lose focus half way through.
- The first half focused on the FL. Long story short, she decided to be a better person. She couldn’t help but get involve in the royal family’s bloody war so to survive, she had to be smarter and less ambitious.
- Wtf happened with the plot after leading our heroine up to this? They shifted the focus on XW the ML. The FL followed him around like a lost puppy while he helped her save all the people she wanted to save but couldn’t. They then decided to give ML this crazy back story with trauma, medical issues, evil schemes, backstabbing, revenge, all of it!
- The evil villain they fought against was dumb af. He got caught in all the traps they laid out. Even when we thought the villain finally did something, it turned out the ML somehow planned it all. Take this formula, repeat it 10x , and you got the main plot. It was boring and too predictable. The endless political battles were childish and overplayed. They tried to be smart about it but it was redundantly mediocre.

Now onto the toxic “romance.”
- She had 3 suitors. The first 2 she turned down were GREAT men. Both were kind, loving, and treated her with the utmost respect. She chose the one who abused her mentally and physically

- ML was the biggest red flag.
- He obsessively claimed her. This was fine for his own delusions but she repeatedly told him, she belonged only to herself. When he couldn’t have her, control her or felt like she didn’t listen to him, he became a psychotic manipulator. 



- He got physical with her on multiple occasions and rarely was he respectful towards her. He repeatedly grabbed her by the throat (the throat!!), by the arm, wrist, and made verbal threats to her. 



- He became madly possessive. She couldn’t look at another man before he choked her and threatened her. 



-Their kisses were grossly forced upon her by him. When he asked her to be intimate, she gave in but left me wondering WTF and HTF did we get here?! This man manipulated her and it was romanticized as love?! 



-She told 3 people she loved him before she even told him. Another WTF moment for me. 



-The ending.. when he deliberately stepped on his son’s shirt to trip him and then kicked the poor boy after? Was that supposed to be funny and playful? Because it failed to be funny and playful to me. Even his daughter was shook. 

I watched 30 episodes and waited for the romance between the leads to start. I endured her giving up two potential great men for the ML only to be given 8 episodes of chaos.
