[Mainland Chinese Drama 2020] Jiu Liu Overlord 九流霸主


Recommended Posts

@Wuzetian, King Is Not Easy was her first drama and she's been in couple of dramas since, but nothing quite as popular as this year's Love Is Sweet or JL Overlord.

 

King Is Not Easy was marketed as a comedic costume drama, but turned out to be a body swap, xinxia, time/dimension travel, story within a story type of drama. I don't think the drama really knew where it was going, but sometimes when things are such a trainwreck you can't help but watch. :lol: I forced myself to finish.

Thankfully then...   Thanks for the recommendation my friend!   Oh yes Leon is definitely worthy of our time! Where did you read about these comments about these people not lik

Finished the drama yesterday....   I really wasn’t paying all that much attention in the first 20 episodes...   there are a lot of plot holes and confusing actions, a lot of ‘huh?’

I'm here rooting for Leon Lai Yi  Happy for him to have his first Male Lead character.    I loved him though he played the villain in The Flames Daughter 2018. He has such strong charisma.

Body swap dramas are just too common already. I dont watch these genre anymore. It must be excruciating for you to force yourself to just sit through it :wacko:

Lol...This is the first time someone calls me Empress Wu...But aint she an Emperor :D ?

 

Then I must go to LIS forum to check out that accidental post of yours. Haha... I just only got to know that Bai Lu was in LIS and Overlord is released, a back to back screening. So that boosted her popularity.

Hehe.. she was powerful... she was both an Emperor and Empress definately... 

 

People we saying how good Bailu is in the republican drama but i couldnt finish it (since people say there was no kissing scenes so as not to promote LBGT? So i read though the recaps and watched the final episode).

 

When LIs came about and due to great reviews, didnt hurt that Leo was sooooo handsome (first time seeing him as an actor there), the rest, is history...:D

I started this drama yesterday and as with most other dramas I had trouble getting through the first episode. Familiar faces don't help this syndrome... At first I was thinking "Die Feng, don't be such a brat!" :lol: But I'm on episode 5 now and got over it along the way... So far I really like this drama! The acting feels natural and I'm happy with both ML's. 

 

I'm watching this drama on Viki and subs are a bit slow. Where do you guys watch this drama?

Yea so unlike Die Feng right? I'm on episode 10 so far. I use WeTV app. They have 12 episodes for non VIP. We will have another 6 more episodes by Friday. Didn't expect myself to watch this fast. I just couldn't help it with our eye candy :love:

This series is the most fun I've had in a long time. I'm up to episode 24 and we still have a long way to go...waiting for the new story arc to begin !

Long time for us who are not on VIP :D You are already 2/3 of the story. Saw some trailers for episodes 30 and above. Can't wait to get there.

I try to stay away from the trailers as they tend to send you off in one direction - then you watch the episode and realize the clip is from somewhere in the middle...:joy: but you watch the trailers anyway !

I read and understand spoken word a bit...been taking lessons for a while but enough where I can watch a series raw and get the gist of what's going on. I often watch on Chinese streaming platforms like

Spoiler

Dubuko

 

 they stream as they are released - no subs tho.

After watching 24 episodes I should say it's getting better and better. Hope we will 

Spoiler

soon get to know Long Aoyi's story too. I suppose for the love story to go forward she should at least belong to a wealthy and powerful family with deep roots in the court. 

By the way, Long Aoyi's dance during the banket somehow gave  me the vibe of Mei's dance (from the House of flying daggers)

Means the momentum building is good...she does look really beautiful in that red dress while dancing....like the song "Lady in Red" by Chris Deburgh, one of my favourites.

Of course...out of the last three drama's I've watched...they all were adopted, had a secret jade pendant that their dying mentor/master/granny gave them...and now, they are the long lost daughter/sister/of the emperor/king/favorite concubine/ and yes...they become royalty...based on trailers I've watched...she becomes something. We have to go to episode 36...so they do need another story arc... :surprisedwut:

Hahaha in this series, the long lost heir was the ML :lol: I think for her, it’s possibly a high ranking official’s descendant, otherwise incest! :bawling:


I have enjoyed this series so far, the chemistry is quite good. Is it as good as Xukai and Leo? No, but then Bailu is very good, she’s making every guy desirable :rolleyes: Leon isn’t the most handsome guy out there but he looks decent, and his scenes with her does pull my heartstrings and in the end of the day, that’s all it matters :P I kinda regretted starting this too early, now I’m on 24 and have to wait :mellow:

 

Arsenal military is actually a good series to watch, while there is no kissing scenes, their scenes together are so cute, and Xukai is excellent as the cheeky bad boy. Still recommended bailu’s fans to watch it. In this series, she’s handled things herself, the boys are like nothing compare to her :lol:

Actually, Leon is my kinda guy...I liked him in ETL and LOF...his role in OL fits him... even before you knew he was a Prince...you knew he was a Prince...LOL

I'm kinda done with the cross-dressing trope. MH was it for me right now.
