    Haven’t watch it yet. Still waiting for Eng sub. But I think the artistic and acting is quite good. Cannot wait to watch it with eng sub.

    I watched the all 8 episodes released yesterday. It’s alright so far…it’s not as exciting as the Palace of Yang Xi…but it’s only 8 episodes at the moment. I am interested to see if Ru Yi going to be a smart character… I never like the “nice” character…so far she’s acting like one…meh

    I wonder …can it actually beat Palace of Yang Xi?? that drama already sets the bar pretty high.

    I look forward to see how Ru Yi progress….

    So I watched 2 episodes of Legend of Ruyi and here’s my 2 cents:
    – I did not like the first episode. Everything happens too suddenly and the setup is like…very contrived. At the very moment the Empress is disgraced the 4th Prince is selecting his wives?

    – The lack of continuity from Zhen Huan is a little mind boggling. Like I understand why they did it but..its like now the Empress is pitiful and Zhenhuan (Xi Guifei?) is pure cunning? The change is character is a bit too much for me.

    – Okay Wallace Huo and Zhou Xun are not fresh faced 20 year olds so maybe they would have picked some younger actors to play the roles when they were young and the marriage selection was ongoing?

    – The way the whole 4th Prince’s marriage selection goes? Like wut so suddenly things happen and the emperor intervenes and Ruyi speaks back to the Emperor? Like wut? Not realistic. I meam yes this isnt supposed to be historically accurate but still…I meam the Emperor just sentenced your aunt forever if you wanna keep your family safe just keep quiet yes?

    I found the 2nd episode also very beautiful in visual but veeery slow and a bit draggy. I mean this is 88 episodes so I dont think anything will move at breakneck pace.

    I wont compare to Yanxi right now because..though I liked what I saw of Yanxi I still dont like that Yuzheng pulled one of his old tricks and put a competing show up just to show off (like Bu Bu Jing Xin and Palace) and the female lead in Yanxi is just too overpowered and crazy – she would actually get killed just like Ruyi for being rude to the Emperor.

    Anyway lets see what happens.

      Agree about the discontinuation from Zhen Huan… It’s just so weird, I wonder why they didn’t just continue from Zhen Huan but started off with Qian Long and Qing Ying being childhood friends and in love with each other lol.
      Zhou Xun’s voice just isn’t fitting for the drama and the age of the character, it would have been so much better if they dubbed her voice, she sounds like she is 撒娇ing most of the time when she speak.

      As much as I love YanXi, i dislike Yu Zheng alot for doing that too. I commented about him pulling off his old trick on a weibo post and got scolded so badly ugh.

        With the amount of shows China knocks off from overseas without proper licensing, it’s seems copyright is not a big deal. I’ve come across fans who think it’s okay so long as the knocked-off is better in their opinion.

      Don’t think the 2 shows are comparable except for being set in same timeframe. That’s like falling into Yu Zheng’s trap😓 can’t deny that he’s really a good businessman and a shrewd judge of audience’s taste, but really hate him as a person. Haha

    Agree about your comment on Yu Zheng – no matter how much I like Yanxi there’s an equal amount of distaste for Yu Zheng’s sleazy tactics

    Am I the only one enjoying it? Haha.
    Easily breezed through the first 6 episodes. Maybe its because I went in without much expectations other than looking forward to seeing the well-known cast.

    I enjoyed the first 4 episodes. Joan Chen and Vivian Wu are so amazing! Zhou Xun is a phenomenal actress but she’s too mature for the role…and her voice too. lol. I like her character…but I’m not sure where to place her on the spectrum of good/evil…she seems good but then…her looks make her too clever looking. I am currently ogling all of the beauties in the harem so far. So many beautiful and talented women!

    So far I’m not enjoying this drama as much as zhen huan or yan xi. I think zhou xun might have beef with the makeup artist, the makeup artist has been butchering her makeup and her outfits aren’t helping. That terrible makeup has age zhou xun way past her 40s!!!

    I think Wallace pulls it off. he looks fantastic. But Zhou Xun, she seems to look so much older here. and her face looks bloated 🙁

    I love Ru Yi Zhuan. Have been waiting for this since end of last year and very excited when it’s finally able to on air.
    The 1st 2 episodes I don’t really kin as well especually with the make up and hair do of Zhou Xun. Well she’s pretty enough but with braided hair like that she doesn’t fit as 15 years old girl. Her hair during the wedding is also awfull.
    After she up do her hair is more suitable and Zhou Xun looked very charming.

    I love the chemistry between Wallace n Zhou Xun. How she prefer Ru Yi than any other consorts / even the empress.

    Just watched until ep 6. The sub is very update enough. Maybe bcoz lots of Wallace and Zhou Xun’s fans. The story of Yan Xi Palace though it was on air before Ru Yi but no eng subbed yet until now.
    .
    The costumes, settings, props and cinematography are amazing. Love it ao much 😘😘😘

    At last I watch Ru Yi with Eng Sub. So far I really like it. I like the pace. It was not too fast and not too slow. Hope things will become much more interesting for next episodes. Cannot wait for it.

    Is it just me but I like it? Like no sickly sweet female voices? I feel like Zhou Xun here. This drama has captured my focus much quicker than Story of Yanxi really.

    I love Ruyi.. how beautiful the costumes and accessories are so tasteful and glamorous . For the Ruyi character , I found she is very patient , calm and smart enough to not wait for the right time …I admire her when she useed her hobbies to soothe whatever bad thing came up… keep embroiding …
    keep calm and..bla bla ….

    the story line is so frustrating ….bad things came after another ..till she became the empress I can feel at ease for 4-5 episodes then It came the downfall of Ruyi it’s worse than the first haif .
    I told myself to stop watching at ep 60 …ha ha but still had a peak till ep.69
    the character I love the most is Hai lan she is the great evolution .
    Hua Jianhua and Zhou Xun their acting skills are impeccable !!
    I also watched YanXi only 1 ep…but I don’t like it much .
