[ Mainland Chinese Drama 2019 ] The Legend of White Snake 新白娘子传奇 (Alan yu and Ju Jing Yi )

I watched the first 8 episodes...it is good so far...and Ju Jingyi is so pretty as Bai Suzhen

I’m also interested in Xiao Qing’s storyline here. The actress (I also like her in Zhao Yao) portrays her in such a lively way. She has good chemistry with Fahai, it is too bad they won’t end up together.

I saw snippets, it looks good! I'm trying hard to not let the CGI get to me. But I've got to say, I really enjoy the remixed OP and ED songs. It's handled really well using the classic theme songs but done with modern taste so it doesn't sound too old school. So perfect! I'm gonna wait for more episodes to air before I binge.

The destiny of White Snake having different story and The legend of white snake is more close to the original story I think.

 

I like alan yu and Ju Jing Yi  (Xuan yuan sword Han cloud ). And now finally they are together again I just hope happy ending this time (In xuan yuan sword Han cloud ending hurts).

The destiny of White Snake also having 2 version of ending .

 

Green snake (Xiao Yan ) I like her so much , her character in the legends drama was very good . 

 

I don't know about Original story, So I want to ask Demon Emperor character  (Zhan  Huang ) in The destiny of White Snake was not in Original story ? because I think in The legend of white snake character list there is no Demon Emperor.

No, he doesn't exist in the original tale. The drama added a lot of complex elements and new characters so it doesn't really resemble the original tale other than some of the characters having the same names (Mdm White Snake went by a different name - Bai Yao Yao instead of Bai Suzhen). Fa Hai was not good friends with Xu Xian and White Snake. Xu Xian had no alter ego or magic powers.

Saw the first episode, and so far I like it^^....Aww the way XX looked at BZS is so adorable!! They already have chemistry. Just saw up to ep 5, and it is great!! Our OTP matched their role and played it well^^. I really like the humor, flirting, and teasing between the characters. Aww Chang Shang is such a cute little actor! So sad he died. :(.

Alan Yu as the cute, innocent and handsome Xu Xian/Han Wei/Doctor Xu is perfect, his expressions say everything about his character. He becomes the character so well. And of course, JJY is perfect as BZS :).

I’m kinda glad Fa Hai is portrayed as being kinder in this version. He seems to have a soft spot for Xiao Qing. Hopefully his character remains consistent throughout the drama, but then wonder who would chase/catch Bai Suzhen then if he remains “nice”.

Just curious - does anyone know how the reception have been in asia so far? Does it get high ratings? Do people seem to like it?

 

This is a webdrama so there is no data about the rating. But the communication index is quite high. On April 8, JJY was No. 1 and AY was No. 3 on the media index of TV drama actors, the TLOWS drama ranked No. 1 on iQIYI's top 10 hot TV drama.


However, this drama's douban score is quite low, only 4.2. Because most of the audience criticized the color of drama is white, pale, is not clear. Some criticisms of male and female do not have chemistry, the character XX is not masculine, ..

 

Regarding the drama color issue, today official weibo drama announced that they has received the viewers' opinions and will edit the colors, not used filter too much. AY's Weibo also updates this issue.

 

Regarding not having chemistry between the 2 main actors, I totally disagree. Because the character XX is a meek scholars so so the concept and himself AY is very suitable for this role, but XX of this version also changes compared to the original is not useless, not easily bullied. JJY's BSZ does not too comeliness like the original but has a more youthful mischief to suit the tastes of drama now. Then the love story of both is also very cute, the way they meet their soulmate,  i think they act quite good.

 

Overall I feel a bit sorry for the douban score 4.2 because I think the drama is also quality, should have a higher score. Hope it will increase gradually later.
