I hope someone is watching this drama. It is pretty good. The cast performs well. The setting and the feel of the drama is right. The customs is beautiful. Highly recommend! Cui Nong is probably my favorite character and her shifu, too. If you watch the drama you will know why. Chai Bi Yu's performance as Cui Nong is very well and she is pretty. I don't know if I'm wrong but I think Zhang Xinyu's performance is weaker than Chai Bi Yu in this series. They both pretty but I think Cui Nong is more attractive to me than MFL. I don't get why some posts just focus on FHX and MFL as pair while not mentioning FHX and Cui Nong. Sigh... The soundtrack is great! btw. 

 阿云嘎 - 边城月 (Opening theme song)

张含韵 - 边城浪子 

胡莎莎 - 迷心局 (Ending theme song)

Enjoy! ^ ^  

Spoiler

I hope Cui Nong will accept HHY - her shifu because he really loves her and will not hurt her. :( I feel bad for him. It is not that I don't like FHX but I just don't know who he loves more between these 2 girls. It is probably better for Cui Nong to be with HHY.

I watched about half this series and gave up. The plot is very draggy and went round in circles, the actors are pretty looking but couldn't convince me to finish watching.

This one popped up on YT in my recommended list. Surprise, surprise, I actually liked it. Despite the criticisms I'd read about it elsewhere, I binged watched the first 15 episodes yesterday with and some more this morning. Sadly only half the series is subbed but it doesn't affect me too much.

I rather like this Fu Hong Xue. Yes, he's stony-faced as he's meant to be and yet one catches the odd glimpse of his humanity, or flickers of his innate goodness. I'm rather taken by the actor Zhu Yi Long who brings an anime-like quality to the role. The women have a fair bit of get up and go and even if they are in a bit of a love triangle, they're reasonably supportive of each other. It helps that Fu Hong Xue is reasonably clear about who he loves... and the fact that one woman wants to save him and the other wants to kill him clarifies things considerably. :D

There are moments where one feels the drag but most of the dialogue feels to me at least to be somewhat important to the plot. There's no clowning around just for the sake of it. 

The fatalism can get a bit much in this show with the older generation trying to manipulate the youngsters one way or another to do their bidding. Sometimes I wonder if C-dramas have tragic endings just for the sake of having them.

Dug out this drama after mesmerized by Zhu Yi Long in Guardian. Lucky me, I found that this drama was translated into my native language. It is rather unfortunate to people that needs english sub though, there is only few episodes subbed into english.

 

The idea of the story is very good, even though I got rather annoyed by the string of miss-understanding between the main couple. Not to mention the parents just make the couple suffer more. Fu Hong Xue character is very tragic. I like it when he finally soften to Ma Fang Ling and smile to her occasionally ..... Outside he is distant and cold man, but I see he is kind and naive person. Too bad until the end he cannot get the simple life he wants because he is too powerful to be left alone. The ending is devastating but after watching strings of Chinese drama with bad ending these months, seems I am quite immune to depressing disappointment .....

Many people criticized Fu Hong Xue for his vagueness of attitude toward the two females. But this is because the story is like that, the plot is like that. The actor did well within the plot. The one who loves him deeply tried to kill him many times, the one whom he wanted to take revenge on loved and helped him to survive. I don't like this drama but I like this Fu Hong Xue :)
