I read a Chinese article and it talked about “Who Rules the World” drama and that YY & ZLS’ acting is so terrible – they called it as an embarrassing for China.
What? I found it pretty good and like it very much. The actor did well. Not excellent but it’s really likeable to watch.
I would share the link here, but I know Dramapanda will not approve it if I attach a link. It happened here to me before.
Who rules the world is a very good drama.
This drama is very enjoyable so far, more so than I expected. I watch dramas mostly for entertainment and to relax during my me-time, so I don’t expect cdramas to have phenomenal acting. So far, it’s good. My only concern is with cdramas is that you never know until the end of the drama. Sometimes the story can drag and go downhill from the 2nd half and I hope that won’t be the case for this drama. I love the balance of romance, politics, family, fighting so far.
