[Mainland Chinese WebDrama 2018] Legend of Yun Xi 芸汐传

Recommended Posts

For those who still can't move on from LoYX and want to fill the void, I would like to recommend 花间提壶方大厨 (English Title: Chef Fang). The main theme is around food and mystery. And the in-law family is so nice from the get go that initially I could not believe it happened in C-drama land :D. It has similar vibe with LoYX and it does not have too many episodes. It only has 36 episodes divided into 2 seasons with 18 episodes each season. Frankly, I don't know why they made it into 2 seasons when they actually could make 1 whole season with total 36 episodes. You definitely need to watch the first season because the first episode in second season is continuing directly from the last episode of first season. I would not share the synopsis though, you could read it in Soompi forums (link below):

 

 

As I mentioned before, there are some similarities between Chef Fang and LoYX:

- Arranged marriage? Checked

- Female lead character is a genius in certain subject? Checked

- One-woman man? Checked

- And some others that I would not mention to avoid further spoiler ^^

 

Heck, even the most famous restaurant in Chef Fang world is called Yunxi Restaurant :lol:.

 

However, unlike LoYX, it has a happy ending, so rest assured :).

 

Notes: even though it was a 2017 drama, the Eng sub is still an ongoing progress. I could not find the Eng sub anywhere except from the translator who are kind enough to provide the link in the forum.

This is one of the thread that i followed because i am sucker for a one-woman man lead type. I haven't started watching this yet but it's on my list. I've seen lots of YT clips and the scenes are love! 

Obviously I'm biased but i would definitely recommend this drama.  It's enjoyable and emotional and the OTP are excellent.

Thanks for the linky!  I'll probably give it a try, hopefully it won't turn out like Mr. Swimmer, which I tried so hard to like but couldn't make it past the first few episodes. :unsure:  

Ugh Mr Swimmer...I was going to watch for Ju Jung Yi but just a few clips and I knew the drama was not for me.

I’ve only gotten round to watching this drama now, and I think everything I think about how depressing the ending was has been said, so an important point I wanted to make was how much better I noticed the actor playing the emperor looks with short hair:

:lol: I hadn’t even noticed he was really good looking! The bun on head look is not for everyone.

Thanks for the rec!   I like to binge watch so will wait until the subs are done but definitely putting it on my watch list.

I think he was a model before so yeah, definitely chiseled. :D  He's pretty tall at 6'2 and I thought he was one of the better looking emperors in ancient dramas.  He's also in Mr. Swimmer with the actress who plays Yun Xi... too bad that drama was unwatchable for me.

I finished watching this before christmas and until now it is still kind of painful that they didn’t really have a happy ending. It was an open ending and so it is up to us to interpret it, i chose to believe that it was a happy ending because it’s easier that way and besides happy ending is just a bonus. The love story of LF and HY is very nice and that is all that matters.

That was my chosen interpretation too.  I refuse to believe in anything but a happy ending.  Those two deserved it!

It looks like a happy ending if you watch the end of this episode she is actually there.

It actually depends on someone's point of view. But, I also think it was a happy ending.:)

So ZZH is leaving Yu Zheng (link), I wonder if it's because Zhao Ge is never going to air. :rolleyes: 

 

I guess it's true that other than Yun Xi, I didn't love any of his other dramas that I tried watching.  Hopefully now he's free to pick better projects.

Thank goodness!  Yu Zheng is not a good company and they have only given him crap dramas.  Sorry to say but I think Zhao Ge is already a lost cause  

 

Legend of Yun Xi is the best drama he has done as lead and it was outside the agency.  Like the article says he just needs a little luck as he has the talent, work ethic and looks so hope a new agency can do a better job for him.

Good News! Viki has liscensed this drama, so we should have subtitles available in multiple languages soon!

Great news but I can't believe they only licensed now after most of us had to jump through all kinds of hoops for coherent subs :lol: Anyway glad for more people to watch it and fall in love with the drama like we did!

Yes, I understand where you are coming from. It would have been great if Viki could have gotten the liscense when the drama first aired, but better late than never!  Gives me the opportunity for a rewatch when the time comes.

I might rewatch too.  It's fun watching dramas with viki's timed comments feature.

Hi!

I havent been here for a long time. Is this OT if I ask this : so Zhao Ge is never going to air?

Hi, @raziela!

Yeah, sometimes I rewatch a drama in viki just for the timed comments. They are hillarious sometimes :P

I agree watching the dramas with timed comments makes the watching experience even more enjoyable. It's the best feature on viki.

You're welcome! Yes it really was quick. It was supposed to be uploaded 2-3 days ago, but it was delayed. Then I checked to see it if was uploaded today and to my surprise all 48 episodes were posted with complete English subs. I think Viki must have gotten the drama already subbed in English from the provider, which was a wonderful surprise! No waiting at all and the moderators for other languages can just start right away, so viewers needing subtitles in other languages should be able to watch the drama much more quickly than usual. I feel really bad for the non english speakers because they  often have to wait months and months for any episodes. for It's a win-win!

Hi everyone. Just finished watching the whole episodes in 2 days. It got me hooked as I love the storyline and the couple. Yun xi is a feisty girl who can stand on her own and even melts the Ice Prince, Long Feiye. I just love their scenes and esp the jump hug scenes, lol it was “refreshing”. Even if the ending has 2 alternates, I want to believe Yun xi came back for Fei ye and they live happily ever after.
