Screen Shot 2013-09-19 at 6.28.38 PM

Si Ye and Xue Wu’s relationship hangs in the balance and outside forces try to wedge all sorts of obstacles. Also can I just say, Feng Shao Feng, in this scene I saw a glimmer of true and unadulterated acting that I’m surprised was in you. Good for you man.

Screen Shot 2013-09-11 at 12.02.38 AM

LLW has one thing going for it in these episodes, its that things move faster than a energizer bunny rabbit. Even though Xue Wu believes that Si Ye’s main wife, the one he is fated to be with, the one named Lady Zhen, this episode is really fun.  This is a good episode, even if it doesn’t have my Yu Wen Yong in it.

Screen Shot 2013-09-09 at 1.27.32 AM

Political intrigue at its best is when the players operate in both the open and the shadows. The deadly dance of power between Yu Wen Hu and Yu Wen Yong is engrossing for the viewer because neither can afford to underestimate the other, to do so means a certain, horrible death. Beneath the flowery language lies two vicious animals with bloodlust in their eyes.

Sometimes knowing how things will end is like throwing a bucket of ice water on a puppy in the middle of winter, and that’s how I feel about the lovers in this episode. Luckily, things zip along so speedily that it won’t take long for the lovers to find away around it.

Nothing says “I care about you” like a forced kiss (NOT REALLY, I do not condone that kind of behavior). The good parts all came from Yu Wen Yong. Daniel, you were amazing in this drama, even when it decided to go into the crapper post ep. 22.

Lan Ling Wang, 兰陵王 Episode 7 Recap

I’ve made peace with the fact that LLW is going to break my heart a long time ago. But what I didn’t expect or rather, prayed wouldn’t happen, is that I would lose interest in it around ep. 22. The reason being the 2nd lead hag. So, because I can not possibly waste my time on terrible episodes, I will write the episodes that i like, and then do mini (like, very minuscule) recaps about the episodes I don’t like, most of which happen 25 onwards. As for Legend of Lu Zhen, the recaps are coming, I promise.

Xue Wu and Si Ye are so good together I almost wish they could have a little more time to get to know each other more. But alas, it’s time to move from one crisis to another. But on the upside, HE’S HERE. And by “he” I mean the second lead. While he has no dialogue, boy does he make a splash. Dear Elizaphantrex, thanks in advance.

Screen Shot 2013-08-20 at 9.56.49 PM

This, by normal asian drama standards, should happen maybe in 20 episodes. This is why I love this show. This is only the third episode and there are no misunderstandings between the two main characters. Also, Elizaphantrex, thank you for editing…and stop texting me at 6 AM to remind me to update Lu Zhen (I’ll get to it I swear) . Just because you now live on the east coast, think of the time difference for my sanity.

I think what I love, nay, adore about this drama is that it’s a no holds barred, quick to the point drama that doesn’t make me want to strangle the emotionally stunted leads. I love that it’s not going to make me wait. Also – thank you my dear editor,  elizaphantrex in advance.
