  1. 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.

    1. Wow! That’s rare for cdrama. They’re usually like 40min after u cut out the opening and ending theme songs. Gonna watch the first ep tomorrow and see how it is. Hahah thanks for the heads up.


  2. 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.
