I lurve this drama so much.  This is my drama krack now. The leads are so cute especially the FL.  I was just laughing like a crazy fella whenever LQ sleepwalks, to point out when he feeds LM the cake when she is asleep and when he assumes to be pregnant with the pillow child :joy:.  If I can I LL screen shot those scenes.  Even

 though the subs are not full, I am in ep.17.  atlast I think they are going to get the needed reunion after the Yunsi ge confusion.    Me too, hope there is no too much political competition between the bros.

Agree with the sleep walking part.. so funny.. when he sleep walking drink the medicine 3 bowl.. the last bowl was contain with princess vomiting back the medicine.. lol.. that one really funny.. I think he really really want to have kids .. lol... hahaha

I just started to watch this drama and it kinda gives me the Dongyue Kingdom vibe from The Eternal Love 1&2. It must be because of the King and the scenery. But regardless of that, I'm enjoying the story so far. Lotsa sweet moments to savor.

Allen Fang specially in this drama has entered my personal hall of fame of best kisser in dramaland along with Jung Il Woo and Ji Chang Wook. 

Man, thoses kisses are both sweet, passionate and longing at the same time.

 

Hoping for season 2 with love line for one of my fave character from this drama, AhZhen what kind of woman would our ever composed, wise, gentle and emotionally guarded Azhen fall in love with? :wub:

This drama has so much kiss scenes! **not complaining though** but holy cow, it's like a kiss scene every other episode or so sometimes!!! But I do love the leads chemistry!!! Thought I read somewhere that this drama was Allen Fang's first onscreen kiss.

@Ellie Toh Aha~! That's who he was lol. I thought he was familiar but I couldn't place him (too many of these costume dramas in a short period of time haha). Thanks for solving the mystery!

 

I haven't been watching the latest episodes (think I'm up to 20 atm) because I've been shoring them for some reason. Anyway saw in the previews that Wang Ye is forced to marry a 2nd wife (!!) which he can't refuse because it's an order from the king. Can't wait to see how Ming Yue and him get past that, as I'm sure they will.

 

Also saw later previews that has Yunsi causing problems by being that 2nd male lead who refuses to take no for an answer... think it's time for me to watch the episodes again haha.

 

Oh! I saw another video that showed Alen Fang playing the piano as he sings the insert OST and the flute! What a talented man! :wub:

Enjoying this drama. I like that from the introductory episodes they were smart enough to realise working together and presenting a united front to outside parties was in their best interests. Both the leads are doing a very good job. I am surprised this is the lead female's first drama ever especially with all the skinship.  They have great chemistry (and kisses:P), plot is interesting and very, very funny at times.  I appreciate the gradual development of their relationship aside from the use of the hypnosis and find the ways Li Qian's subconscious comes alive with his real desires when he sleepwalks hilarious :lol:

 

Supporting cast are good too from the supportive sister-in law to Li Qian's friends. I especially love the adorable servants of the Prince and Princess: Tan Li, Di Wu Cheng and Que Yan. They add a lot of enjoyment to the plot!

 

Budget obviously isn't the largest but the costumes are nice (apart from the obviously cheap wigs) and sets are pretty good. Well, after the shoestring budget of The Eternal Love (by the way, I have seen comparisons to that drama but I much prefer Love By Hypnotic) almost anything looks luxurious in comparison :lol:

I prefer Eternal Love even though its obviously low budget (cheap sets and costumes) was off-putting and its soundtracks were very memorable. I’ve compelled myself to watch 6 episodes of Love By Hypnotic and still don’t get reeled in.

Game time!

 

Anyone who could count how many times the leads kiss (including smooch, deep kiss and borderline making out-did u notice wangye uses his tongue in one of the scene :wub:)?

 

I have just finished watching the last ep (without sub). All in all, I really like this drama. Its fluffy and sugary sweet! Plot wise, there are a lot of plot holes, and overused plot device such as obssesed love rival/second lead, power struggle, revenge, etc. but what sold me was the chemistry of the leads, the friendship between wangye and his bros (they even coach wangye how to consummate his wedding..lol)

Just finished ep 1, the leads are cute^^. I can see their chemistry in ep 1 already! Is this drama going to be like, the leads were lovers in the past just based on the summary, sounds like that?

I just could not get into the story in Eternal Love. I think part of that was the off-putting cheapness of drama which made it seem almost like a farce or parody .  Also I personally am not a fan of the stories where a character takes over someone else's body unless they are very well-written (like Startling by Each Step) and I didn't think this was.  I felt some of the things the female protagonist did with the body was very morally questionable and I just didn't like her character much, then all the weird magical, fantasy stuff that happened at the end was just :blink:

former lovers but she was hypnotised to forget their love.

 

 I think this too :tears: That's so sad and manipulative. .

Spoiler

Poor Yunsi and Li Mingyue.  I wonder how she will react when she finds out.

Hey, Startling by Each Step is one of my favourite dramas. I also had initial difficulty with the contemporary brashness of the female lead character in EL when she took over the body and yeah, what she did with the body at one point was morally questionable. Similarly, I’m not really comfortable with MIng Yue’s lack of compunction in hypnotising others to make them do things her way (eg her maid and the male lead). I feel that is morally wrong. The chemistry also pales in comparison and I’m not really impressed by the male lead’s acting. I think that is why I’m not enjoying the show.

I agree about the hypnotising.  I nearly dropped the drama after the "date" because she went too far after she had promised him she wouldn't but it seems she has learned her lesson and she hasn't used hypnotism on him since without his permission. I like their chemistry but, of course, that is subjective.  I wasn't wild about the chemistry in The Eternal Love even though most people seem to rave about it.

Did no one else find it weird that both Ming Yue and her brother recognised LQ as the guy who saved them from the assassination in Ep1 even though they never saw his face with his mask removed?

haha I didn't noticed that. But, yeah that is weird how they recognized him without his mask? Not sure if intentionally done, or mistake there?

 

Well, I'm on ep 13 and finally 2nd lead appeared in ep 11. I haven't seen this actor, and he is quite handsome! I'm dying to see MY and Yunsi love story! So far, it's funny; but I hope the plot picks up soon.

I saw the preview of last episode and FL hair turned white .  I only watched to ep 20, then I saw preview of political and it turned me off not to continue.
