If y’all knew how long ago I watched this but I have been too lazy to write this review? No, no, please actually laugh at the fact that I even rated it and everything back then too, but somehow couldn’t put two words together. A darn shame. It’s probably because this was such a mid drama that there really isn’t much to say.
The story had a really good premise. I love forbidden love type of stories and I am in the minority in which I am glad it seemed to be childish and fun in the beginning because the abrupt tonal shift was not the vibe. I actually enjoyed a lot of this drama up until the about episode twenty-two or so when the Emperor decided to escort her back to the forbidden city. I loved that we spent so much time with the couple and I thought the chemistry was fine. It wasn’t no ‘drop your panties and get horny’ but it was sweet. Like come on the dance scene in the brothel was soooo cute. So yeah, after they went back to palace and the Emperor strapped on his hella crazy boots I was like damn.. I don’t give a fuck. LMFAO.
I want to go on record and have it in writing that the people claiming this to be the worst drama in existence are being dramatic and over exaggerating. I am over everyone acting like Dylan Wang is some acting God because of Love Between Fairy and Devil and that he was out acting Yukee. THEY WERE EVENLY MATCHED IN MEDIOCRITY. Yeah, I said it. Who gonna fight me? Also, you put on this drama expecting more than to see pretty people in costumes? Too bad. So sad.
Overall, mid drama. I had an okay time. Not bad enough for me to give it anything lower than a 7 because I did enjoy it up to a point. I mean, I liked approximately 63% of it ! Plus, I like Dylan and Yukee and I am biased so kiss my ass! xx
