@SC2019 Thanks for creating this thread.  Eventhough it is obviously not popular.  For your efforts, I must at least make A Post eh. :w00t:


Sorry I've to wait till Ep 9 before I make a Post.  For those who are wondering to watch or not, below are my thoughts:


This is a good story.  About a pair of Twin-Sisters who are Non-Identical : 

- The younger twin is called Xuan Zhen. She looks sweet, pretty, outgoing and popular with friends and family. 

- The older twin is Xuan Zhu.  An Introvert.  Plain-looking.


Of course everybody loves Xuan Zhen.  She is even their Eldest Sister's favourite. There are 3 Girls and a Boy in the family.


But alas Appearances are Deceptive.  Beneath her sweet demeanor, lies a very spiteful nature.  She is Egoistic and has to be the Centre of Attention in everything.  Very jealous of her twin-sister and will do anything to make her sad and defeated.  Even tried to steal her male admirer.  


So one day, when this sweet little thing was found dead by a Lake, everybody was baffled. Especially the family.


Xuan Zhu left home and never kept in touch with her family till many years later, when her mother was hospitalised.


When she returns home, her Eldest Sister continues to avoid her. She hated and suspected her for the death of Xuan Zhen.


But by Ep 9, the Truth is beginning to unfold


This is a good drama.  But unfortunately, the Pace is too slow.  Suspense is lacking.  Even the Music Score does not give us the Creep.


But the strength of this Drama is:  Very difficult to guess who is the Culprit.  Everybody looks suspicious.  But nobody is guilty.  Acting is natural. No dubbing.


It is very Touching.   I sympathise with Xuan Zhu.  She was so much misunderstood. So Traumatised that eventhough she left Home, she could not enjoy a happy life,  Could not maintain a Happy Relationship with others.


This is a Story which could easily happen in society - in a family.  Favouritism does exist.  And can indeed easily happens amongst Human Beings.  A Food for Thoughts Drama. For me, it is better than a lot of the the dramas we have out there.


Worth watching  if you have the Patience......

Ep 9 was good.  Ep 10  was even better. It brings "New Surprises".  I believe it is going to be like this all the way until the Finale - where we will be given  A Big Boom !


The Plot is Novel.  The Actings from the Senior Cast are Great.  


We not only have the drama from the 2 Non-Identical Twins.


We later have a Niece who looks Exactly like the Deceased Xuan Zhen - But with a Personality almost equivalent to Xuan Zhu.  She is gentle and introverted.  Isn't that Novel?


I'm tired of the Mediocre Actings from a lot of the younger Actresses out there.  And the Repeated and Sub-Par Plots.


So "The Pavilion" is fine for me


P/S:  My Apology.  The Plot is not Slow.  It is just that they unfold the Story in a "Low-Keyed", Perfunctory Manner.  At times, it is difficult to find the "Precise Words" to describe it.  I guess they plan it this way, so as to "WoW Us" in the Final Few Episodes.
