Wow, this looks epic and bloody, hehe. I must confess, I to this point thought WJY is an actress of one role. May be she will prove me wrong with this one. WXY is his usual self, edgy and "complicated" ))). Will try to check it when it premieres)

This whole conversation Li is having with her murderous husband is incredible. Every word she says has a double meaning that completely destroys him because it’s the truth whether it’s Jiang Li or Xue Fangfei/Xue Li and he has no idea for sure who she is.

@leo2020  Agree with you.  I just finished Ep 1.   WJY is a bit too old & not pretty enough for this role.  What to do?  It is a YZ's production.  Nevertheless, it looks exciting.

I've watched 10 episodes already. There are things I really like, and there are some moments we're I think they overdid it, either with intense music or with color or with slo-mo. But overall - a pretty captivating production and plot. 

FL is doing OK, and WXY looks mature enough, thus believable to be her ML. 

There are also a lot of familiar faces among the cast.

Agree. Sorry to sound shallow but I get taken out of the story whenever her face appears close up to fill the screen. There are a lot of close up shots in this drama which is very distracting for me. And that Gu Qin playing segment was really ‘what am I watching here’ moment for me.

 

The beginning 2 episodes were so promising - dark, moody revenge story, then the mood changed as the drama progressed. Now it is a slapstick comedy ==“.

 

I am only continuing to watch this drama because of Wang Xing Yue, and also because I enjoyed the original novel.

@leo2020   @omiki  Glad to have both of you here.  I have watched up to  Ep 15.

 

Most of the Supporting Casts are alright: the evil Stepmother and her 2 lovely daughters.  And all the other gentlemen and ladies, both old and young.

 

But I have an issue with the Female & Male Leads.   

 

Wu Jin Yan (FL) :

Wu Jin Yan is obviously too old for this role.  Especially when she is in a Close-Up Scene with the ML.  I would prefer the FL to be Prettier than the 2 step sisters.  Otherwise, it takes away the Excitement of the Revenge !  Her performance is mediocre. 

(Has she done something with her "Mouth"?  It looks different now when she talks.  In "The Story Of Yanxi Palace", she looks Funny whenever she talks.  Like she requires a Lot of Efforts to move her mouth)

 

When an Actress gets older, they should have the Wisdom and Grace to turn down plots that require them to act too Young.  

 

Wang Xing Yue (ML) :

When I first saw him in an earlier drama of him, I was impressed.   But now I am not.

 

Is he dubbed?   Because each time he speaks, the Voice does not seem to belong to him.  So it is very Distractive for me.

 

He is too young to act Tough and Matured.  So he Does Not come across as Menacing to me.  It makes me Laugh instead.  An older actor would be more Convincing.

 

But then, as I have said, this is a Yu Zheng's production.  He wants to use his stable of artistes - whether suitable or not.

 

So I continue to be more enchanted by the Supporting Casts.

 

(My Apology to the Fans of Wang Xing Yue).

Agree, just like Jaywalk and H&R Century Pictures tend to do very often.

Close-Up Scene

Honestly in this drama many close-up scenes make me really :crazy:. I'm not a fan of overuse of camera filters, but in some of those scenes to see the actor's pores/skin imperfections under tonns of make-up is really uncomfortable.

@omiki   Totally agree with your Assessment.  As usual, it looks promising at the start.  And then loses its focus as the story proceeds.

 

Both the Male & Female Leads were "Dubbed".   Wu Jing Yan's performance is Mediocre.  Wang Xing Yue is very Robotic.  And there is no Emotional Intensity between them.  So for me, this Drama fails.
