English Title: Memory Lost
Chinese Title: 美人为馅
Cast: Johnny Bai Yu, Yang Rong
# of Episodes: 45
Airing Days: Mondays, 2 episodes, VIP gets 12 episodes first night
Synopsis: Memory Lost follows our male lead as he suffers from amnesia and struggles to find his lost fiancée – a woman confirmed by everyone around him that she does not exist. He’s described as taciturn, as cold as ice, and as calm as a lake at night. His search leads him to a small town where he meets a female detective, a girl full of personality. Similar to him, she’s equally mysterious with a blank background for the last five years. After meeting him, she’s constantly entangled in complicated murder cases, and facing near-death situations. As they confront the lurking dangers, they gradually uncover the secrets to their lost memories. [Credit: Kappy]

    Watched the first 3 episodes of WASFIL! The English subs are good (the uploader has put up another version with both Chinese and Eng subs btw)

    – Story: ✪✪✪ 1/2 – I’m more interested in the Myanmar plot line introduced in ep 1, but so far the introductory case is interesting
    – Chemistry: ✪✪✪ 1/2 – the two leads have only just met in ep 3, looking forward to seeing their development. I also like the squad (it’s cute how Xu Xu drew cartoon animal versions of them)
    – Acting: ✪✪✪✪
    – Directing: ✪✪✪✪ – feels like a movie
    – Entertainment Value: ✪✪✪✪

    Wang Kai was cool in the fight scenes XD

    Going to check out Memory Lost later this week 🙂 I’m also watching Dr Qin…so many crime dramas this month haha.

    1. Tyn123

      Can u give me ling to eng sub versions?

      1. Kappy

        Last night, the links were English-subbed, and this morning, they are not?!! Yoyo…..

        Episode 1 with subs: https://www.youtube.com/watch?annotation_id=annotation_3880737303&feature=iv&src_vid=2NuI_pgxdiQ&v=HHK-bPPJ8Hs

        1. tokkita

          The eng subs are gone now and replaced by Korean subs instead :S

        2. xingfenzhen

          Looks like yoyo responds to youtube comments, you guys should complain. However, it could be some kind of deal with Viki, since viki now have a license as well.

  2. Linsh

    Hello….I d like to contribute too…based on 3 episodes, I gave wasfil a 5 star on everything except on chemistry (just because its too early)…but so far so good. The pace is unusually fast, script very tight, makes you pay attention from beginning to end plus the occasional rewind in case you miss something, and of course to look at Mr Ji again.

    It’s official, folks, Ji Bai, is the coolest cop on earth. Direct, no bs kinda guy, super fast, high intelligence and very intense. Wang kai seems to be in his element. And I have long suspected he will be really good in action movies if given the chance. He really conveys the alpha male aura as per the novel. Cool without even trying. Finally…we get to see him in drama where he is the lead without excessive romance. Seriously, who needs romance when the lead is that cute…

    1. Linsh

      Kappy, there are over 100 million views for this drama on tencent since it aired last night. Is that considered a lot ? Or good viewership ?

      1. xingfenzhen

        It’e currently ranked 7th, just a tad above memory lost. Considering only 3 episide are contributing to viewership totals, it’s quite good.

        http://www.xunyee.cn/rank-teleplay-play.html

    2. frea

      nooooo i want some romance! lols! i wanna see how a cool guy treats his love, how gentle he is and googly eyes… the only time he’s soft-hearted! i wanna see all that. ROFL!!

      yes, im 12!

      100M is very good!! snail aired later than memory lost and at that time most people in china are preparing for bed. so it’s really good opening week!

      1. Linsh

        Sorry, I want Wang Kai all to my self. If you are 12, I am 13. So I win…lol. Actually I dont mind some romance but so bored of wang zi wen lately. She’s annoying in ode to joy and then we have to see her again in ode to joy 2…Actually her character is better in snail…she’s vertically challenged introvert who’s quite smart. Kinda like a lot of us…I supposed…

        1. chasingpolaris

          Having watched Wang Zi Wen in other works before, I can say that her character in Ode to Joy’s is her most annoying one so far. She’s real but really annoying. =P

        2. frea

          lol…. elder win. okie dookie!!

          i didn’t really watch ode to joy so no idea how annoying her character is!! but she doesn’t feel annoying here so im in the winning round!! XD

  3. KatyCho

    Memory lost link is not working now. Can u give me another link?

    1. ChocolateCosmos

      Are you able to watch it on IQiyi?

    2. Kappy

      It got removed. Sigh! You can stream on dailymotion. 😀

      1. mingly

        Make sure you change your resolution to 720p

    3. Keiko

      Where can I watch this with english subtitles?

  4. Pinky

    Does anyone know when the next batch of 12 episodes of Memory Lost get released? Or is it only two episodes per Monday from now on? So addicted to this drama cause it really follows the book 🙂

    1. Nino

      I believe only the first week, 2 episodes in later weeks.

      1. Pinky

        Yup. I’ve read that theres 3 Seasons (Batches) to be released. The second season/batch will be released around end of November and the 3rd batch in December 🙂

  5. Redbutterfly

    Anyone know where to read these books in English? I’m so hooked on Memory Lost right now!

    1. Pinky

      http://bookbychapters.com/memory-lost-chapter-1/

      This website has so far translated around 30 chapters for Memory Lost. However the book has around 160 chapters. I’m not sure if they’re still translating the book though… They usually post a chapter every week…But at least the first 30 chapters can give you an idea of the book.

      1. Redbutterfly

        Thank you!

      2. kabuto243

        Last I checked their still translating a single chapter every Monday. The update is usually closer to the end of Monday evening, but so far they have been updating weekly.

  6. chasingpolaris

    – Story: ✪✪✪

    Totally my bad for thinking that Ding Mo wrote the script for this. She is working on it but for LMIYD2, I believe. Anyhow, the story for this series is OK so far. There’s only three episodes and we’re really only being introduced to the main cast of characters. A lot has changed from the book but don’t ask me about the specifics because I read this a long time ago, haha.

    – Chemistry: ✪✪✪

    It’s a little too early to tell between WK and WZW. However, I have a feeling I may like the team as a whole. They seem like a bunch of good guys that would provide comic relief.

    – Acting: ✪✪✪✪

    The WK and WZW here are nothing like the WK and WZW in Ode to Joy. I think there are some actors that will make you think of a previous role they played. Not the case here. I have to say WZW did a good job convincing me that she’s Xu Xu. I’m not entirely sold yet, but she exceeded my expectations so far. She seems smaller than she actually is, with that quietness of hers. And no more of that annoying voice of hers from Ode to Joy. Thank the heavens.

    – Directing: ✪✪✪

    It feels like I’m watching a movie. No complaints there.

    – Entertainment Value: ✪✪✪✪

    So far so good. I can’t wait for more episodes. And I also like the opening theme. The Lion, The WitchSnail and The WardrobeAnimal Kingdom. =P

    1. chasingpolaris

      My bad. This is for SNAIL!

  7. cassey

    Thank you so much Kappy!

  8. miyeon

    Judging by the praise and the popularity so far I decide to check snail…and I finally get the fuss on wang kai haha.
    Btw dumb question but i remember back then chinese dramas used to air everyday at least 2 episodes like with love o2o? It’s been limiting itself lately? May i ask why or is it bc its a web drama broadcast?

  9. Anonymous

    I’m so happy I can finally watch it thanks for posting o<

  10. abugemilang

    Memory Lost at Iqiyi has 12 episodes uploaded with different cut with the first 3 episodes here and at DAILYMOTION. I wonder what actually happen?

    1. Kappy

      Different cuts? The only changes I did was removed Qiyi annoying logo in the beginning of the video. They should be the same, around 42 mins per episode.

      1. Abugemilang

        I think I got mixed up with another drama. FYI: Love is More than a Word also release its first 12 episode in batch at Iqiyi.

        I wonder if they cut out Gay related scene in the drama?

  11. jen

    I actually think the leads have insane chemistry in WASFIL from the bits i saw and some of the stuff in the trailers. Their height difference is really cute.

    5 stars for the creative title, the direction, chemistry, pacing and the acting

  12. jen

    Does anyone know if there are english subs for Dr. Qin medical examiner? I really want to watch Zhang Ruoyun be badass

    For Memory Lost:
    Story: ✪✪½
    Chemistry: ✪✪½
    Acting: ✪✪✪
    Directing: ✪✪✪
    Entertainment Value: ✪✪½
    So far I finished 12 episodes, and honestly it was disappointing. Idk what went wrong but the drama isn’t as interesting as it turned out to be in the trailers. The action scenes weren’t particularly exciting and while I watch the drama, I kept on skipping.
    The chemistry between YangRong and BaiYu was okay. The characters felt a little different from how it was like in the novel? And BaiYu was a little disappointing as HanChen. Whoever did the hair for Xu Doctor should be fired, he looks ugly… Xu Doctor was disappointing as well, he felt overly prim and proper and nice that it felt fake to me…
    Maybe I am a bit too critical since I read the novel but Memory Lost drama is a bit boring lol…

    For WASL:
    Story: ✪✪✪½
    Chemistry: ✪✪✪✪
    Acting: ✪✪✪✪
    Directing: ✪✪✪½
    Entertainment Value: ✪✪✪✪
    I have honestly nothing but good things to say about WASL (judging based on the 3 episodes)! Initially I was a little skeptical about Wang ZiWen as XuXu and the chemistry between Wang Kai and her, but they proved me wrong!
    Wang ZiWen is really good acting as XuXu! She portrayed her exactly like it is in the book! And she’s so damn adorable in the drama hahahah!!! I watched a little of Ode to Joy and she is extremely different as compared to WASL! You can really tell they are 2 different characters!
    Wang Kai is good as well! His character is so poison tongued that I can’t hahahha!! I actually felt a bit sorry for XuXu inside the drama! I was a little afraid I would see a bit of Jing Wang from Nirvana, but he did a great job differentiating the characters! He is really the Ji Bai from WASL!

    Overall, while the scriptwriters for both Memory Lost and WASL didn’t follow the novels entirely, WASL worked well for me! The flow was really good! I hope that this goodness would keep up for the rest of the episodes since only 3 episodes came up!

    1. Kumaxell

      I agree with your reviews on both dramas. IMO, Memory Lost is a romance drama in which the main characters happened to be police detectives. When a Snail Falls in Love is a cop drama in which the main characters happened to like each other.

      I am appalled by the unprofessionalism in ML. I rolled my eyes when Jin Xi began dissecting the case in front of the victims. Callous, much? Not too mention it’s totally unrealistic to wear 3-inch heels with super tight jeans and still be able to chase down perpetrators. It seems like the characters are more concerned about walking like a model than behaving like a half-decent TV cop. And yep, Dr. Xu’s hair is MAD ugly. Ugh. If I pretend ML is not a cop show, the drama is actually okay. The interaction between Jin Xi and Xiao Zhuan is adorable! They reminds me of Go Princess Go’s Zhang Peng Peng and Yang Yan. Slightly flirtatious but mostly sibling love.

      As for WASFIL, the production team definitely learned from their mistake with Love Me if You Dare. The crime solving is so much more satisfying and the relationships between the characters develop more naturally. It is easy to see why people adored Ji Bai. He is assertive but not inflexible, logical but not cold. And most importantly, he is good humored and caring. The man is as perfect as perfect can get. As for Xu Xu, she is as a cute as button. When Ji Bai accused her of having preferential treatment, she affirmed that she deserved special treatment because she is a genius… with a straight face. When that didn’t fly with Ji Bai, she began her physical training… with equally serious attitude. For some reason, I find her actions hilarious.

      If I were to pick a crime drama, WASFIL hands down is the better of the two.

      1. Ahsixian

        Totally agree with this comment. Saves me from typing!

      2. Julianne Lin

        You’re SO on point with WASFIL. Tbh I wasn’t blown away by Snail, but it was definitely a very good drama. It pretty much delivered on what it promised. Love your analysis of XuXu and JiBai. Totally what I was thinking too.

    When A Snail Falls in Love
    Story: ✪✪
    Chemistry: ✪✪
    Acting: ✪✪✪½
    Directing: ✪✪✪
    Entertainment Value: ✪✪½

    The first two episodes were interesting but for some reason the third episode just made me very bored that I was skipping parts and I didn’t even end up finishing the episode. I like WZW’s character, the way she uses psychology to figure out stuff is very interesting however the other times she just seems so dull (maybe that’s just her character, but it makes me bored). WK’s character is pretty cool too but isn’t really unique or interesting. The interactions between the two leads are so little and there seems to be a lot of focus on the first case which I find quite boring. Hopefully that improves when there are more episodes out.

    Memory Lost
    Story: ✪✪✪✪
    Chemistry: ✪✪✪✪✪
    Acting: ✪✪✪✪
    Directing: ✪✪✪
    Entertainment Value: ✪✪✪✪

    So I didn’t actually plan to watch this. Looking at the trailers, it really isn’t my type of drama (Amnesia! I hate those and it seemed more dark and creepier than WASFIL), also wasn’t familiar with the two leads. However after finishing two episodes of WASFIL, I wanted to watch more of something so I decided try Memory Lost (have exams soon, so I was procrastinating xD)
    I have to say, it is surprisingly good. I love both leads, I find their chemistry to be really good. Just all those little interactions between them are so cute. So far, one of my favorite moments is how he helped her get down that big box. Was also really funny when HC was chasing the criminal in the shopping centre and called JX a 路痴 when she gave the wrong direction.
    I also love the relationship between Xiao Zhuan and Jin Xi. Doctor Xu is just…I dunno. I just keep looking at how white and smooth his skin is…
    The first case wasn’t really interesting but I’m liking the second one so far. Maybe it’s because more closer interaction between the two leads (yay!)
    Very entertaining and addicting, I watched ep1-2 the first day and the rest non-stop the next day.
    I’m dying for the rest of the episodes but from the looks of it, it seems it won’t end until December…so long!

    Overall, I think I like ML much better is because there is a backstory for both JX and HC that I want to know compared to WK and WZW’s characters (sorry, don’t remember the character names…). There doesn’t seem to be anything special about them yet. Doesn’t help that there is so little interaction between them but that should improve when more episodes come out hopefully!
    Also from what I heard, the cases in ML revolves around the backstory of JX and HC so I think that is what hooks me in, whereas Snail just seems to have separate cases.
    I haven’t read either novels, so can’t really judge/comment on how well they followed it.

      Just found out second season of Memory Lost is coming out on 14th November! Just one more week~

      Here’s the trailer for second season:
      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NJnEGu3S4IA

  15. sue

    I have completed 12 episodes of Memory Lost and can’t wait to watch the rest. I absolutely love the 2 leads because they have great chemistry and the story moves at a good pace.

    As for WASFIL, it is more realistic and has a darker mood. The acting is superb but interestingly, I’m not excited about the romance angle between the leads.

    Overall, I had more fun watching Memory Lost. Each episode kept me wanting more and I’m rooting for JX and HC.

    I love both dramas. There are some changes in the story line compared with the novels but I don’t mind. As long as the character’s portrayal follows the novel, I like it.

    And I have to say this: Wang Kai as Ji Bai is totally spot on!
