This is another one that I started watching out of boredom...mainly when I'm doing my morning routine lol. Actually, it took me two tries to watch it cause I couldn't get into the FL. The second time around, I felt...it was not that as terrible that I initially thought. There are def some Goblin vibes, but so far, it's just vibes and some character set up similarities. The first story was good enough to hold my interest, so I will tune in more. I'm surprised this thread is so quiet. I thought there'd be more Bai Yu fans (if relation to the Guardian CP, I'm actually a Zhu Yi Long fan lol). Wait...I guess there is also a  Guardian vibe! lol

 

Lin Xia at some angles low-key reminds me of Yang Rong, who I loved in Memory Lost with Bai Yu. Well, I will stay tuned. Based on the ending scenes, this is more of a romance, right? I'm not really a huge fan of kiddish romantic comedies (assumption based solely on FL characterization). I kinda wish it wasn't because I enjoy shows with other kinds of partnerships represented (can't members of the opposite sex also be "bros"?). That being said, Bai Yu is a good actor, so I will place my faith in him to convince me of the romance.

You're welcome! I'm always glad to provide any subbing information for us viewers who need English subs.  Hopefully, this drama will be a good one. The plot doesn't appeal to me that much, but I like male lead actor Bai Yu -I think he's very talented. So I think I will try to watch the first episode.  I have not seen the female lead before so hopefully she is good actress.

I'm enjoying this drama very much. Love the chemistry between our OTP.  Bai Yu so handsome when he smile. Our OTP is so natural with each other.

First time watching the lead actress.  She is very pretty in both modern & period dressing.

Just watched ep 1. And like crackaddict, I cannot get into the FL. Sorry. But I find her antics kind of repulsive.:(  The ML is good.  He has Stage Presence

For me, I actually quite like the FL, but don't really like the ML - just find him ok. (watched up to episode 24 on Tencent/Wetv) Idk, personally I find her character brave, vibrant & kind while I find the ML's character boring & pushy.   

 

I don't mind this drama, but it's spotty to me - some of the writing & acting is quite ehhhhh, some of it is quite decent. 

 

I like some of the themes that run through it, like how FL brings news ways to deal with the spirits, that are able to help those involved without harm.  There is a theme a bit later on about sacrifice, (Shen Zui) & that was quite nice too.  Xiao Xiao has a pretty decent arc too so far, so we'll see.  

I'm not quite sure about the overall theme - I guess we'll see when we get there.  I hope it doesn't become too convoluted overall.  Generally, I find the simpler the plot, the better - when things get too hectic, things just turn out messy. (for the most part)           

 

I honestly love Yang Jian's character the most, & I love how they always put him next to/or holding the Moomin doll, that kills me every time tbh. :lol:

Yeah i agree with the goblin vibe lol, but so far i like the drama, mainly because of the otp’s character and the male lead’s acting, he’s good playing 2 different characters. First time watching him, will definitely see his other projects.

This drama reminds me of a more light-hearted Moonshine and Valentine but with a much more likeable FL who is not infuriating;y stupid like the airhead in that drama and a less creepy ML:lol: 

The ML (Bai Qi) coldness annoyed me at first but now I'm on episode 18 it looks like there is actually a good reason for his restrained behaviour. I also like the FL a lot.  She is cute but she isn't dumb. She is practical, kind, smart and is often very helpful. I do wish their romance was a bit less childish considering their ages and the history of the ML. I actually prefer their previous forbidden romance relationship from the past as that romance seems more mature and more compelling  I keep hoping for more scenes of them from that period..

 

I am also surprised how hilarious the drama is in places.  Poor A Li and Yang Jian bring a lot of humour to the drama.  the product placement of the facemasks and cold medicine is completely ridiculous though.  I feel sorry for A Li's actor as he seems to end up with a lot of the awkward product placement scenes:lol:

:lol::lol::lol:He is hilarious and somehow very adorable! Lin Xia's nickname of "Baby" is very suitable. Love how clueless and brutally honest he is! I could really do without the loveline with the annoying idol girl though.

I've watched this also out of boredom, and partially because I was curious as to what Johnny Bai is like, out outside of Guardian. It gets a little better now towards the ending but I didn't quite like the beginning episodes. Johnny Bai looks good in costume, I must say.

While watching, I felt there are a couple of dejavu scenes.

Spoiler

You know the scene where Bai Qi goes to pick up Lin Xia when she is having a reunion with her friends? That is very similar to Master's Sun, a kdrama. Similar setting and similar outcome. And the part where he loses his memory and can't remember her, although the cause of him losing his memory is different, but the pain that she goes through and having to remember her all over again, gives me the same feel as Master's Sun.

Tonight is the last episode for wetv premium....can't wait to see what happens to the both of them.:blush:

Aww man I just watched the last episode - I really like this show, even with all the flaws. Gonna have some withdrawal for a bit now. And I HAD to come here to spazz about it a little, though this thread is sadly quiet (I had the impression that Bai Yu was more famous and would draw a crowd).

 

It's actually my first drama with Bai Yu and he's completely won me over as an actor. He's very expressive and plays both emotional and light-hearted scenes well. Also helped that he had two characters in this which really showcased everything he was capable of. I also thought his chemistry with the female lead, Jade Cheng, was great. I liked her after watching her previous drama and she's definitely improved in this one. I really bought their feelings for each other, and it was just so SAD whenever they were apart. 

 

I've been watching quite a few of the Mainland web dramas lately and I have to say this was definitely one of the better ones. I normally don't watch shows with more than 20ish episodes if I can help it, just because there's almost never enough in the plot to justify the length (except those set in historical times, which is still arguable). But this one actually did have the story - in fact I feel like they cut some scenes out - and I never felt like it was plodding. 

 

In short - I RECOMMEND! :thumbsup:

If you liked his acting, check out Guardian (镇魂). It is a BL story and his chemistry with the other male actor is really good. In fact that show was very much discussed when it aired and the social media reach/ mentions/ depth of discussion was fantastic. I first watched Bai Yu there and that is what brought me to check him out here.

 

Overall, I think the storyline was entertaining, although there were parts borrowed from here and there. And in the second half, his interactions with the lead actress pulled me in. There was genuineness in emotions and his ability to play both Bai Qi and Hei Qi was fun to watch. In the last 2 episodes, the longing and the sense of loss was certainly there.  (Though, personally, I thought the character of Ji Xiao Bing was rather intriguing to watch.) 

 

So, for anyone wanting some entertainment, yes I would recommend watching this too!
