With a doubt, In Youth is completely dominated by the artists from Jaywalk Studio. It surprised me that while Qiao Xin is the female lead, her screen time has been scarce compared to any of the other Jaywalk Studio artists. But, the drama is produced by the agency, so it makes sense for it to promote and show more of their people. And while this may be a disappointment to some people, I don’t mind it. So far, I’m much more interested in the all of the characters. And, I actually quite like the drama centers around them rather than the female lead. It makes the story more interesting and makes room for more character development.

But, on the plus side, she looks great next to Zhang Yun Long!

And, as a longtime viewer of C-dramas, there have been a few antagonists that I’ve come to absolutely hate. And before I go on to name a few of these characters, I do want to say that this has nothing to do with the actors and actresses who portray the characters, as they all did a great job in their performances. Seriously, props to them for being able to play despicable characters. But anyway, here is a list of some antagonists that I honestly did not like.
