Ignoring the messy way that it ended, The Legends will go down in my books as one of the cutest stories out there, thanks to how much the badassery of Bai Lu as the sassy heroine complimented the lovable Xu Kai who is simply puppy dog sweet.
With the first stills of Jiu Liu Overlord 九流霸主, I love, love seeing hints of Bai Lu from her previous role as Zhao Yao. Normally, I’d hope for some variety, but I’m relishing the actress’s portrayal of powerful females just because she’s been killing it each time. Instead of the demon lord, she is now the leader of the dragon clan whose intelligence earned her the title of little Zhu Geliang.
As for Lai Yi, let’s just say I’m happy to finally see him as the lead. Lai Yi as the textile merchant is being described as a white rabbit opposite Bai Lu’s female overlord and the two will eventually join forces to fight for the people. If that’s a metaphor for their dynamics as a couple, I’m more than curious to see how it plays out.
