Since launching barely a week ago, Li Yifeng and Yukee Chen Yuqi’s Mirror: A Tale of Twin Cities 镜双城 has been at the receiving end of some not so nice comments from disappointed viewers. From the plot to the acting, things don’t seem to be boding well for the series so much so that viewership has reportedly dropped. Nonetheless, the team behind Mirror: A Tale of Twin Cities still has a few tricks up their sleeve, rolling out a new filter in the hopes of improving the overall tone and feel of the show.
For the most part, the series has pretty much been performing below viewer’s expectations, and the comments online criticised everything not just the drama’s storyline and the acting, but also the actors’ appearance which didn’t escape the brunt of the critiques coming in. Why, poor Li Yifeng in particular was even called “fat”. Of course the colour filters used by the production also didn’t help to set the mood right, what with the slightly greyish tint making everyone look wan and a little bit “off”.
Whether it’s enough to boost the show’s ratings, we’ve yet to see. But the adjustments to the show’s colour filter is definitely a step in the right direction towards resetting the tone for the remaining episodes and making everyone look a touch more vibrant and less cold.
