I also thought that 31-36 were really good... better than some of the earlier episodes. In general I think this drama gets progressively better as the characters develop and start being a lot more tho

I binge watched all of the current episodes and I’m HOOKED so I just had to come praise this drama.   I think they really got the casting spot on. Everyone has moulded right into their characte

Really?! I watched till ep 33 and I thought those episodes were amazing. Action packed and the story line is fast moving. We finally got to see cute lovey dovey moments between CG and Sun (I liked eve

Don't think age is the issue. Currently, there is a modern drama airing called Rational Life with Dylan Wang and Qin Lan. Dylan is about the same age as Wu Lei but Qin Lan is already 40/41 yo and they have very passionate kissing scenes in that drama. So it's either Wu Lei has a no kissing policy like Ju Jing Yi or the script really doesnt cover kissing scenes for the main leads. I think it's likely the no kiss policy since there are kissing scenes for MMGL and MJ. 

 

It could also be because of the covid? In the bts, dilraba sometimes wears a mask, maybe she isn't comfortable kissing in a pandemic?

Possible too that Dileraba has a no kissing policy during pandemic. But either way, it's not because their age difference or Wu Lei's age.

I’m a little behind at episode 15-ish so it’s too early for me to review anything but I’m liking things so far. :) Fav character so far is Uncle Shi Min, not gonna lie. :lol:

 

however I do want to rant a little about the battle scenes being animated. it’s a real turn off for me. Idk if I’m the only one who feels that way but it gets me disappointed each time.

Oh!! isn't because I don't write in the tread that I didn't see the episode LOL I'm in episode 42 when they are out. My mom watch on tv and keep asking me when it's coming the next episode oh my my...

 

Wu Lei doesn't want to kiss. He really a shy little guy come on. Specially that will be his first kiss in on screen...let's him take his time LOL

 

Arthur(Fei Yu) too doesn't kiss no one, why no one complaint it ^^ When he acting with Irene from Ever Night he was only 17-18 year old. He now he watch some serie and still not kissing 

 

Wu Lei is only 21-22 year old. When he was filming this serie he was only 20 year old ...too young. He isn't not ready! 

 

The serie have a good pace..We can see slowly Changge change her attitude with A'Sun and slowly accept her feeling for him. Become more woman too because how she tread herself before was like a man. Hao Du, how he change and also seem have his own thiking and analyse it. His change attitude with Changge and his love/protection for Luyan...is really warming. Good developpement. Now we can see he is a second lead....:approves:

 

@elsanna Oh I saw you in the tread too !! :wub:Well the confession, do you mean from our lead couple or the second couple?

Just realised that we'll be updated with all the final episodes tomorrow?! how is that even possible hahahah I feel like we just got to see Leyan and HaoDu together and now we have to say goodbye already.

 

Stills, this drama has been quite a ride and loved it to bits. Can't wait to see how all characters will settle down at the end of their journey.

I'm going to refrain from watching the ep 43 to 49 spoilers to maximise the experience hahaha. I can't believe we reached the ending so fast! This drama has been one of a kind. No episode was boring. Just hope the ending is fulfilling.

Right? I can't believe it either! I'm going to have a severe case of Haoyan withdrawal after this (feeling it already ahhhh).

It's always nice to have a wuxia drama with some serious undertone to it, which sets it apart from other lighter and more cutesy wuxia out there.

Here's hoping all the cast will go on to bigger projects after this. While it's true that I have the most emotional connection with Leyan and Haodu's arcs and relationship, I appreciate every actor's contribution to this show and especially think Wu Lei has great potential (he's been pulling off that maturity so well despite his young age).

I plan to do a marathon of ep 31 - end when the Eng subs are out. After The Wolf, I also don’t want a 

Spoiler

Sad ending for another Cdrama!!

@whiteybao nope, the animation really annoyed me too and I am a huge animation super fan lol. It doesn’t fit into the flow beyond the initial episodes and they just used it to cover the scenes they don’t want to film lol. It is so jarring.

I'm quite disappointed with the finale for our lead couple, of course it's clearly said that sun and changge went to live together, but at the end the very last moment we don't see them hand in hand, moreover this fire scene made me feel pissed off, we still have to save her, yes we know that she is necessarily alive, but we know that she is alive only a few minutes before the end,

i wanted a wedding and a child:astonished:

I totally hear you. I felt the same too.. feel like we’ve been cut short. I hope they will release another short clip of their happy ending.. or remember the 3rd promise from Changge to ASun has not been materialize yet? Hopefully the director/producer will give us something.. 

 

just like eternal dream of love/the pillow book, the director/producer release bonus clips after the season finale.

Spoiler

I think Leyan's pregnancy has been cut from the drama as they dedicated more screen time to resolve the last political conflict. From what I've read elsewhere the real kiss between HaoDu and Leyan was also cut, as well as a scene where Leyan was supposed to take care of Haodu, but so far it's just grapevine rumour and nothing has been confirmed yet.

 

I'm personally not disappointed though I would jump at the opportunity to see more of them. I'm happy with their wedding and I think their realising their feelings for each other is the turning point and I really couldn't ask for more.
