Synopsis:

The Legends 招摇 is a lighthearted fantasy romance drama that stars Bai Lu as the leader of the demonic Wanlu Cult (lit. ‘ten thousand killings’) and Xu Kai as Mo Qing / Li Chenlan, a disfigured guard who carefully hides his love for the heroine behind a cold exterior.

While attempting to take her predecessor’s Wanjun Sword, Lu Zhaoyao (Bai Lu) is ambushed by the ten immortal sects and mistakenly believes LiChenlan is related to the incident after he is revealed to be the previous cult leader’s son.

Five years later, Li Chenlan has taken over the position of cult leader, and Zhaoyao decides to exact revenge with the help of cultivator Qin Zhiyan (Xiao Yan), though slowly falls in love with him instead.

Okay i managed watch 2 eps, cant fully understand since no eng sub, but the male lead was son of hades, he was originally being locked in a cave, but eventually being released by someone that supposed to kill him. And the female lead was the student of the Cave Keeper or something, same cave where the son onf hades being locked. But she never met the son of hades. She finally meet the son of hades and rescue him from sects that want to kill him. So it quite resembles with story in upcoming drama Ever Night chapter 2, but the son of hades is actually daughter (female lead) and the saviour is the male lead. 

 

Dont really like the hairstyles of supporting casts, especially the female priest, the male and female lead are okay, should watch another eps for knowing about their chemistry.

Hahhaa welcome @rhaps, yeah in general most stories are similar, that is why we should see the detail, is it good or not, still dont know whether i will continue this or not, since both main lead i found quite familiar in face but dont know about their past project. First impression is 7/10.

From the comments in Instagram, I found that this drama is an adaptation of a novel named Ostentatious Zhao Yao - 招摇 from Jiu Lu Fei Xiang.

Spoiler

https://www.novelupdates.com/series/ostentatious-zhao-yao/

Again from the comments, it seems like the author wrote this book as a light hearted and cute novel. The male lead is very doting towards the female lead. 


More comments and stills can be found on this site. Beware of spoilers tho. 

 

This is my favorite still. I saw this last week in Instagram, and it just makes me feel stuff you know.. lol.. :wub:

There's just something about this scene that makes me smile.. :wub:

@RPM 

Its OK, You can still watch it. 

All you need to do is add a vpn adjuster in your browser. I use browsesc add-on and it is available for firefox and chrome. Just google it, this is part of approved browser tool so its safe to use. :D

Whenever you want to activate this add on just set it in US because most of the shows I know are not blocked in US :P

Hope this helps.

I made an account ages ago, but never really used it. I'm happy to make this my first post! Hope you all will welcome me. :)

 

This drama is giving me so much feels. One of the main reasons is because Jiu Lu Fei Xiang is my favorite Chinese author, and this is her first novel to be adapted. She is also one of the screenwriters too! Secondly, I have a girl crush on Bai Lu so I was happy she was cast as Zhao Yao. Xu Kai left a pretty good impression on me after Story of Yanxi Palace and that hyped up my anticipation a little more. I enjoyed the first two episodes and love the little interactions between Mo Qing and Zhao Yao. The scenery in some of the takes are so breathtaking. The red and blue is vibrant, but easy on the eyes. If they keep it close to the novel, then there will be some angst, but mostly lightheartedness.

I see some familiar faces here hello @epinklyn, hello  @lynne22 thanks for the heads-up on the drama.  The OTP seem to be cute.  But here's more feedback from the comments on avirturalvoyage blog

https://www.avirtualvoyage.net/2019/01/first-impression-what-do-you-think-of-the-legends-with-bai-lu-and-xu-kai.html#more-24892.

 

I will wait for more episodes and feedback and give a try.  I can wait since i am into so many dramas now.

Hi @pad-hari :wub:,

 

I have only watched 2 eps, missed the 3rd and 4th, and there is no eng sub, so i just watching the beautiful scenery, and the people LOL, skipping here and there, and i have the same odd feeling like what people in avirtualvoyage comment, the fact that the demon son is safely locked in the cave, then why that "good sect" person messed up with him, and end up releasing him. :sweatingbullets:
