  1. Honestly, I am not excited about this after the trailer but Viki will be subbing it so I will check it out for MaKe.

  2. I’m watching for Ma Ke but hoping the drama surprises me. Also, we should all just…..look at how beautiful Ma Ke looks in every outfit

  3. 81 episodes 😱 I’ll take a look at a few episodes to see if I like the story. An actor or actress alone is not enough to make me watch a show.

  5. Watched ep 1, almost a full hour! Weird vibe from story to acting to dialog to CGI to costumes to lighting. Only the Qin kingdom felt normal. Will see how ep 2 goes.
