    Hmmmm I literally just started it so not too much to say. Admittedly, I’m completely biased so not really interested in White Snake and Xu Xian’s story at all. I’m also not a super fan of White Snake’s personality. Like, she’s likable and JJY is adorable. But also she’s so classic do-good-er; gentle, kind, self-sacrificing, beautiful, innocent, etc etc. She’s also young enough (according to this adaptation…not quite the graceful elegant time-less snake yet) that she’s a little self-righteous too. Which is very…classic heroine. Like I said, I’m personally biased bc that’s just how White Snake is and I’m not a fan cuz I find her personality a little stiff and boring for me.

    On the other hand, I’m LOVING Green Snake right now. And I’m honestly looking forward more to Green Sake and Fa Hai’s story than White Snake and Xu Xian. Is it bad of me to admit I don’t really care for our main couple?

    ALL of that said, I don’t think I’m interested in continuing this. I know this is White Snake’s story, and within the given og source material parameters, she (and the story) are fairly in character and classic. I’m just…not interested so I’m bowing out. Maybe I’ll pop in to check on Green Snake occasionally but like, that’ll be the extent of it. Lol I like the actress too. Now that she’s not playing Zhi Yan in Legend, she’s MUCH more likable lolol. (Not quite the same, but the closest description for how I feel about White Snake and Xu Xian is ….they’re too vanilla for me? Excuse my use of words…not quite what I’m going for but the idea is there lol; they’re very classic hero + heroine gentle good, kind, sparkling white glowy people one step away from ascending to godhead in their metaphorical halo…)

      There is no Xu Xian and Green Snake loveline in this story. Or else the drama will be taken off air like Yang Zi’s version

    Never watched any adaptation before this so drama is fresh for me.
    Seems like a typical xianxia romance drama.

    Bai Suzhen and Xiao Qing together are really adorable and I wish they could be the OTP (impossible since its China), but I like Xu Xian and Bai Suzhen together as well. Can’t wait till Xiao Qing gets her own loveline. Storyline is decent but I’m mainly watching for the adorable chemistry between the leads.

    Just to clarify, totally not dissing their romance. They’re awesome, cute, have chemistry…it’s just not something I feel like I can concentrate on and get invested in.

    Lol godhead.. yeah I agree.. White Snake and her storyline with Xu Xian never really excites me, especially when you compare them to Xiao Qing and Fa Hai. White snake was never one of the dramas i would choose to watch.. not until along came Yang Zi and Ren jialun’s version, but didn’t watch everything and was more focused on Xiao Qing and Qi Xiao’s storyline (love them!!)

    I’m looking forward to Xiao Qing’s and Fa Hai’s story in this one as well.. i see people eyeing this CP. Although i don’t think it’ll be romantic, maybe some feelings (care, concern) here and there and only to that extent.. and looks like Xiao Qing will have a love line with 张玉堂. Also enjoy her interactions with 景松 and the four demons (when they disguised themselves into servants and maids and omg the cross eye i cracked up)..

    One thing i would have to complain about is the filter.. anymore filter or brightness added the jaws of the ladies will be gone.. but i guess they were going for the fantasy and ethereal look for the drama

    Omg, I’m glad we’re all on the same page here. I started the first 8 eps and they are decent. I have nothing to watch now that Goodbye My Princess is over, so following this series wouldn’t hurt. Like you guys, I’m more interested in Xiao Qing’s arc and it seems like everyone agrees she has an interesting chemistry with Fa Hai. Also the actress has potential. I liked her in Zhao Yao.
