@Cheerie, no problem.  I also found that this drama thread was archived in another name LOVE AND LOST.  Was impatient and opened a new thread.  Heard good reviews of this drama on MDL.  I like kenny in princess agents.  Its more than 3 years now to see him on screen.  Will wait until more episodes are released with subs.

Omg!!! Is this true???? Wow!!! How did the paps managed to grab the video so laaanngggg? Indeed they are so intimate.  And Kenny is so so affectionate.  

https://h5.video.weibo.com/show/1034:4575082194862098

 

I have yet to start this, but becoz of this news, I want to see their chemistry in the drama.  

Haha..its all over weibo today. Some said its a promotion and LGX claimed that he is drunk. 

 

Glad that you are starting the drama soon. The chemistry between the leads is definitely great. I find it refreshing as both their characters and the storytelling of this drama are very unconventional.  

 

I enjoyed the initial episodes more on how they hooked up.

Spoiler

Personally, I am a bit disappointed with the undercover story as it is not as convincing. Perhaps they didnt put much effort on that part. Anyway the arc got over quite fast. Moving on, it got better and interesting when resolving the case.

I think that video is hard evidence that there is something going on even though LGX claims to be drunk. lol It was obvious he couldn't take his hands off her. I am watching this series too but I am finding it hard to completely love their romance onscreen. Honestly, their current love scandal is more interesting then the love story in the drama. lol

Glad that more are watching. What happen to LGX fans? He's been MIA for too long til now tt his thread is archived.

Spoiler

I get what you mean. Me too thought its a bit too ridiculous for the strong girl to allow him to carry her off for a holiday lol and accepted him. I do see their chemistry but the process is lacking.

 

The part i cant stand is the 美男計 relationship with the older lady. The attraction never exist on either side lol. At least he has it with the FL :P

@Cheerie LOL As a LGX fan, I am still recovering from the lake where his Yuwen Yue drowned in. Watching this makes me reminisce about PA and how bad it was. LOL Its like YWY finally reincarnated and is able to flirt with women in the 21st century but still secretive as heck in his profession!

Haha...remember we were joking about his ears turning red doing kissing scene and hoping he will do a romantic drama. And now here our YWY did pretty well with his new leading lady lol. By the way, ZLY praising his new drama on weibo and he still address her as Zing Er.

ZLY did?!! Awe, they have a cute friendship, i would have thought they haven't kept in touch since PA. I use to think ZLY was one of his best co-stars but I think he suits his new leading lady just as well. Visually, they are stunning. I guess taking a break really helped him vamp up his acting skills as well, this is very different from other shows he's been on. Totally the opposite of sad YWY who I still love to this day. T_T

I just posted in a similar thread so I guess there are double topic on this drama. I like suspense but still could not move on from PA. Maybe I have to order my unconsciousness to think that YWY reincarnated to the modern world too to enjoy his dramas again. 

 

It is good to hear that LGX and ZLY maintain a good relationship, in case PA2 is on the way *sigh

I love this drama!! I checked out the plot summary, decided to watch it, next thing I know, here I am, waiting for the subs to episode 7! The main cast are devastatingly beautiful to look at and the storyline is good too. I hope the quality keeps up. 

 

I loved the conversation in episode 6 as they wait for the sunrise. It's an extremely vulnerable moment when Xiao asks YanJin "Are you serious with me?... I mean it, be serious!.... Will you lie to me?". Poor girl! I think many people find the character standoffish and snobbish so far, but I see a cautious person. Yan Jin may look enthusiastic about her but I think she has been watching him to make a decision about whether he is serious or just a joker like his over-enthusiasm shows. At this point, he's using her in his undercover plan, but of course he will fall for her and she'll find out that he was stringing her along, they'll break up and he has to pursue her for real real..lol. 

 

Back to the conversation in the car... she's finally cracking, he's gotten under her skin and breached her walls and the girl kisses him. (I loved her kiss, his kiss back was an overenthusiastic attack like his character :D, but it will do for now.) My romantic fantasy goes up in smoke a few moments later when she says, "I admit I yielded to him totally, I hoped I could see Yan Jin everyday... but he disappeared three days after..."

 

I wish they could subtitle faster! Chinese dramas are my current thing. I have been watching them on and off, but Dating in the Kitchen really cemented my interest, especially because the Chinese seem to be doing skinship and kiss scenes better than Korea atm. (I'm tired of those ridiculous kdrama hugs and sloppy closed mouthed kiss scenes)

Hi Africandramalover, I'm like you too... I jumped on the c drama phase after watching Dating in the Kitchen. I love that series... and I am enjoying this one immensely too. So suspenseful and the two leads are just eyecandy individually and together. They are so fun to watch ... i just love watching their interactions, whether it's hot or cold. 

And it helps that they can act as well. 

 

I'm just so impressed with the production of this drama so far... simply excellent!!

In episodes 7 and 8 when YanJin had to be the bad guy so that the "triad squad" doesn't catch on to his undercover game....y'all!!! He became my enemy!! At one point I was convinced he hated Xiao'ou! Thankfully they didn't drag the cruelty and he kinda made up for it in episode 10 with that drunken scene in Xiao's bedroom :D

 

I'm loving this drama, but man I need those subtitles to drop quickly!! 2 episodes a week is like drops in the desert!

I only watched the MV so far that focused on the romantic side. I keep looking for LGX red ears lol. At least from the MV it's not there. So he is better/more prepared now for the romantic scenes. Good for him! Although I wish to see him in a more serious suspense or wuxia drama again. His next project is still comrom modern day.

It's actually quite surprising that at some point this drama reached the top spot. I guess I read somewhere that LGX got irritated by a very bad rating initially and retorted in an awful way online, then a couple of hours later apologized by saying he was previously drunk. 

 

He later blamed again the alcohol for the kissing scandal. This dude really has a problem with drink or is it just an excuse. Both do not sound good to me but hopefully I was wrong. I still want to see him in great projects.

Btw, any idea how to wake up a closed topic?

Cannot revive an archived topic.  If u want to, then start a new discussion thread.  That's the reply I saw in one of the tutorials by an admin.  

 

IKR, I saw Kenny Lin blaming the alcohol he drank.  Some years back he was so reserved and now this.  I don't know how he could change to two extremes.  Hehe.  But this show is still high among the international viewers and hitting the right notes.  But the subs are little slow.  So I am waiting for the whole sub to finish to start this.
