I honestly don’t know why I continue to drop pop cultural references but I can’t help but see it a la Batman v Superman or even a metaphorical Tom and Jerry, wuxia style. Kevin Yan Kuan (New Xiao Shi Yi Lang) and Chen Xiao (Romance of the Condor Heroes) in the lead roles of Zhan Zhao vs Bai Yu Tang is to watch for because it’s so rare for the viewers and the production team to unanimously agree on casting choices and in this instance, it was so on point.
As an imperial guard, the righteous Zhan Zhao is somewhat of a straight arrow compared to the mischievous Bai Yu Tang. While both are polar opposites in every sense, they are undisputedly heroes in their own right. Yet the fangirl in me can’t resist the deviant charms of the latter and with Chen Xiao as the actor (>.< happiness).
The ending song is mildly reminiscent of a 90’s theme song and it’s called Bu Ru Huai Nian 不如怀念 by Chen Chu Sheng 陈楚生.
