I swear, this is yet another extension of the growing KO One franchise. Rakshasa Street is technically completely unrelated but all I see is Jiro Wang reprising his role as Wang Da Dong as he brings the same hot-headed personality that is a hybrid of cool and corny. Of course, he happens to make his grand entrances on a motorcycle too.
The show comes with a fair amount of slapstick, as with most web dramas nowadays, so it really boils down to personal preference. I just wish that the plot could have been a little more meaty because I hear good things about the animated series, and while I see a nod to it stylistically, it doesn’t seem to be anything out of ordinary, and the villains seem to be there just to make the good guys look good. That said, if you are looking for action mixed with fantasy, sit back and relax because it is pretty much what you’d expect.
Candle in the Tomb: The Weasel Grave
The premiere sets the stage for the heroes to embark on a journey to catch weasels. I mean it just sounds so random, but I guess this is the plot that we’re supposed to get behind. There’s an evil lurking behind the scenes and the mood feels dark and dreary, like waiting for a pin to drop. The production quality seems decent overall, but I might not be the right audience for this because I got bored watching it. I also tried watching Ghost Blows Out the Light: Finding Hu Ba Yi starring Darren Wang and couldn’t even get through the first episode of that.

jiro's charrie in rakshasa street really did remind me of da dong of ko one series haha this series is perfect for him, the cheesy corny kind of dramas haha, it suits him, i can't take him too serious either tho hahaha
and i've seen till epsidoe 10 and i quite like it, it's really nice and to see the female lead actress acting like this is nice too! i'm used to see her calm sophisticated roles so its really great, it gets even more crazy in let's shake it, i haven't watched much of that drama yet but its so different, its nice hahahaxD
its reall webdrama tho i had to think if rakshasa street was webdrama or not cause the effects and all are done really great! 😀
I liked the way they did Rakshasa also, it's basically a good live action anime. Would've wanted to watch the rest if I had time but between the two, I'm sticking with lET's Shake It.:)
yes its really like a very good live action! at firs ti really had to think twice to be sure if it was a webdrama or not because it didn't look that low budgeted haha
i'm gonna probably marathon let's shake it 😀
