Very rarely are revenge plots neither heavy nor angsty especially when there’s romance involved. I’ve caught up until episode 18 of The Legends 招摇 and to my surprise, what starts out as your ordinary fantasy drama ends up being a light and unconventional romance. The story builds on the heroine’s determination to kill the man that she thinks betrayed her, except that he didn’t. He’s so in love with her that every attempt she makes to get close to him is like seeing a dance of how two people fall in love.
While I can’t say that the drama as a whole is keeping me engaged, the scenes with Bai Lu and Xu Kai are heart flutteringly sweet. Zhao Yao may be trying to kill Li Chenlan most of the time but least, he’s aware of it. It’s amusing really to see so many fails and I really hope she doesn’t cause irreparable damage. Li Chenlan is too precious that I wouldn’t mind some payback angst when Zhao Yao falls for him too.
Zhao Yao’s first attempt at revenge fails when Mo Qing is no longer the same man he was before. He has gained his powers back and rules Wan Lu Men as Li Chenlan, the son of the demon king.
Poor guy has no idea what hit him when an invisible Zhao Yao tries to stab him.
Zhao Yao gets Li Chenlan to carry her on his back. Keep those claws away girl, this moment is supposed to be sweet.
Death by poison?
Nope, that won’t work either.
This scene had me worried. The man is seriously injured and agrees to spar with Zhao Yao just to make her happy. I wish we can get to the part where she learns the truth sooner.
Zhao Yao gets another chance when Li Chenlan had his back facing her.
She has a change of heart and our lover boy smiles. He must be so happy simply knowing that she decided to spare his life… this time ?.
Omo, so many xu Kai's articles today!!!!??
I love this drama
Honestly this drama is really good once you get past the first 5 or 6 episodes. I’m waiting every week for it now!
I started to wonder why Viki does not air this drama considering its quite popular now. Been looking to see the Eng sub for couple of weeks.
Please any news about this drama English sub? Wish to see it with english subs. And is viki going to sub it? Please anyone answer if there is news about it
Thank you for introducing this drama to me. This was such a delight to watch. I was going to skip as there were so many fantasy dramas from China that is so boring and draggy. I love the Main Leads! I have been fast forwarding the side stories…. but love love love the Main Lead interactions. The Main Lead guy is so swoon worthy! His devotion to her is so admirable and he is doing everything to protect her. The Lead Actress is so headstrong and I really like her acting! These two leads will become famous, they are really great actors/actresses.
The main lead is the same guy from Story of Yanxi palace, for anyone who doesn't realize it yet 🙂
ahahahah it's so funny how all her attempts fail and how he just smiles at them XD
Love the drama! Can't wait for it to be fully subbed ^^
