The 48 episode drama airs 2 episodes every Sunday to Monday on Mango TV beginning 09/23/2018, while VIP members get a 6 episode head start, but by this time there are already 8 episodes. Overseas viewers get the VIP treatment for free on Youtube.

 

Everything seems to indicate that no site (for example viki or dramafever) has interest in subtitling this drama. Very unfortunate especially for those of us who are Zhag Han's fans

Has anyone started on this here?  I read that Hans produced this series

 

I've started it and have watched up to episode 12 (raws, not subbed).  I can't say I was immediately hooked, but as I continued watching, the story and my interest steadily grew. 

 

A couple of things I would note, I've read comments that this drama sounds a lot like the Korean drama, "Secret."  It did to me as well, but that was based on the drama summary that was provided before the drama aired.  Now that it has, I can say that the drama summary is misleading in that Ruan Man Jun doesn't get disbarred and doesn't go to prison. Maybe that's how it is in the book, but in the drama, she serves as a witness at a trial, and as a result of her testimony the defendant suffers a heart attack and ultimately dies. At the time, she testified based on what she knew, but later she realizes that the defendant was innocent and she was purposely misled by her ex-boyfriend who had framed the defendant. These key differences make the drama a little less Secret-like. ;)  

 

I've also heard complaints that ZH is playing another CEO character, and to that I say, but he plays it so well!!!  Who am I to complain?   (Except for maybe his fashion choices . . . lol.)

 

Finally, with this drama also being set in Shanghai, the "Here to Heart" comparisons are inevitable.  I confess to being guilty of it myself and if I had to pick between the dramas, hands down, I would pick "Here to Heart."  But that doesn't mean this drama doesn't have its charms and isn't interesting.  As I said at the outset, I am enjoying it and look forward to watching this week's new set of episodes.  :)

Viewers in China are the hardest to please.  They always find something to complain about. 

 

Have you seen Hans' fashion sense outside his dramas?  Its even perkier than in his dramas lol.

 

I think because this drama is an online drama its not getting much media attention.  Its been harder getting spoilers and info on it.

FYI -- According to a poster on MDL, subs are available through the YoYo channel on YouTube.

 

Checked last night and looks like it's blocked for those in the US, at least.  :(

I usually watch without subs.  The YouTube version is available in my region.  Sometimes it’s better to watch the ones uploaded by other sites since it’s a full download without commercials.  I sound terrible since I don’t want to pay my dues watching ads LOL

Dimsum.my is not available in the US, but the drama's Chinese wikipedia page does mention that this drama aired officially on a one-week delay through dimsum in Malaysia.  How fortunate you are.  :)  

 

I suspect that other sites will rip subs now that they are available to some (depending on country) on YouTube, but I've gotten so used to watching the raw videos on Mango TV's (the official Chinese distributor) YouTube channel that I'll probably just continue doing that.

Today I am happy because from yesterday the episodes 1-16 are available with subtitles in my Spanish language.

 

Being available in Spanish makes me suppose that 16 or more episodes in English should already be available, since the subtitles in Spanish are generated from the subtitles in English, although I do not know the websites where they are available.
