    Beautiful Opening subbed by ProductiveProcrastinator!

      Hauntingly beautiful OST!

      I’m still enjoying this show despite falling out of love with the main couple. The secondary couples are picking it up for me, especially Wen Si Yuan and Shen Man Qing. Who here finds Chang Ge’s naivety absolutely adorable?!

      • 33 thoughts on “Love In Between Discussion Post: Mid-Series [Spoilers AHEAD]

        Oh no, you fell out of love with the main couple? Why?

        All the couples in here are so cute, and yes Chang Ge grows on you the more you see him!!

        I hope for a happy ending for all. *prays*

          I think it’s because they move from love to hate and back from hate to love at hyper speed. I get that misunderstandings are a normal and necessary part of dramas but their relationship’s dynamic is starting to feel very contrived. Either that or the director is lacking. For example, she forgives/accepts him again (gathered from her action of taking him to see her shifu) for using the medicinal leaf before knowing that he used it on her, to save her life. That’s a disconnect for me.

    I’m probably the only one who dislike the relationship lines of all three couples.
    The main couple has misunderstandings one after another.
    All the second couple do is stare and cry and then stare again.
    I don’t even know how the third couple fall in love.
    Otherwise, the drama is good. Love the hauntingly beautiful OST and suspense.

      Romance is the most whatever part for me too. WSY x SMQ and ZQC x SYL dynamics are interesting on paper, ZQC ‘wedding maneuvering’ is problematic but in character with his manipulative nature and I actually find it amusing, but I couldn’t care less whether anyone get together with anyone or not lol.

      • 33 thoughts on “Love In Between Discussion Post: Mid-Series [Spoilers AHEAD]

        I like the couples but do prefer watching the characters’ as a group rather than when they’re split off. Such a waste that Shen Manqing is left out of the main adventure and mostly interacts with only Wen Si Yuan once they fall in love.

        • 33 thoughts on “Love In Between Discussion Post: Mid-Series [Spoilers AHEAD]

          I actually appreciate that show didn’t make up some bs just to give some limelights to everyone in every arc, them growing apart doing their own thing then getting reunited seem to happen naturally so far. Tho yea I agree that SMQ got kinda left out, she still has some revenging to do lol

      • 33 thoughts on “Love In Between Discussion Post: Mid-Series [Spoilers AHEAD]

        I actually like the romantic arcs here, and in general I think they are quite well written and suit the personalities of the characters. Except Yin Changge-Xie Jiang ‘er, which is meh & feels like out of nowhere. If it were up to me, I’ll just keep Changge’s bromance with Zhu Yan.

    • 33 thoughts on “Love In Between Discussion Post: Mid-Series [Spoilers AHEAD]

      Yeah, the third couple’s romance is the weakest of all. I chalk it up to her wanting to go on an adventure and falling in love while he’s from an all-boys sect and doesn’t know any better. And… before they know it, Jianghu life rears its ugly head and they manage to be there for each other. It’s not love but at the same time it is.

      Yeah, the third couple’s romance is the weakest of all here. I chalk it all up to her wanting to go on an adventure and falling in love while he’s from an all-boys sect and doesn’t know any better. And…before they know it, Jianghu life rears its ugly head and they manage to support each other. It’s not love but at the same time it is…for them. Perhaps the director should have included a few scenes of them looking shyly at the other, from a distance. That always gets me.

  3. 33 thoughts on “Love In Between Discussion Post: Mid-Series [Spoilers AHEAD]

    I think if we switch the guys for both girls, things might work out slightly better lol. ZhuoQingCi put his girl no.1, everything else an afterthought. WenSiYuan put his revenge no.1, his girl only when possible. Neither guys is doing well atm lol.

    I just don’t understand, why can’t she run??!! Why stay for the ceremony when it becomes clear WSY is not coming…? Why stay after the ceremony??

    • 33 thoughts on “Love In Between Discussion Post: Mid-Series [Spoilers AHEAD]

      The whole kidnapping the bride in front of several top jianghu leaders scheme was too risky in the first place. She could’ve just ran away quietly from the start even without WSY proposing if she hates the marriage so much. But then again she probably has nowhere to run to hence she clings to WSY. I don’t know how old she was supposed to be but she doesn’t strike me as an adult, at least compare to WSY or his aide.

      • 33 thoughts on “Love In Between Discussion Post: Mid-Series [Spoilers AHEAD]

        I understand she only agreed to attend the ceremony because WSY promised to crash the wedding. He needed her there so that the wedding goes on and delay JingXu going after SuXuan. But she didnt put up much fight after that and i cant believe she stayed there after the ceremony…..wondering if its the whole moral thing holding her back..?

        • 33 thoughts on “Love In Between Discussion Post: Mid-Series [Spoilers AHEAD]

          I mean, she never even thought of running away until WSY promised to take her away. Even after deciding to elope with WSY, she still had ideas like wanting to ask her teachers approval of her relationship with him, in hope they would go along with her wishes. She’s prob just not mature and independent enough. Zhengyang palace is very much her home, and Jin Xu and the others are her teachers as well as the closest thing to parental figures/family. Meanwhile if she run away, where would she go, what would she be doing for a living, what about her future. If she’s with WSY at least there will be an ‘adult’ figure whom she can rely on. Hence why she is still staying there.

          Or… you know, it could be just plot hole lmao.

        • 33 thoughts on “Love In Between Discussion Post: Mid-Series [Spoilers AHEAD]

          I don’t believe SMQ would’ve ever thought of running away, even when she couldn’t refuse to marry Mu Ying. She wouldn’t have the gut to leave Zhengyang, that’s her home and Jin Xu is her master and father figure.

    Out of the three arcs in the first half of the drama (Shanhe map, Wulin championship and Xueyi Temple), I think I like the championship arc the most.

    Shanhe map arc was a good intro to the characters and caught my interest with how the female lead is the physically strong one and was actually realistically disguised as a guy. And how male lead’s slyness makes up for his lack of fighting skills. Lol when Zuo Qing Ci temporarily made himself blind and Shen Man Qing lose her voice so Su Yun Luo would have to take her role in the mission.

    The Wulin championship was the most emotional! The battles were short but interesting and showed the different fight styles & personalities of the characters. The Devil Kid’s true identity and love story 🙁

    Quite enjoyed the first half and am hoping for a happy ending for everyone though at this point I feel like having the couples die together at the same time would be as close as we get to a HE lol.

    • 33 thoughts on “Love In Between Discussion Post: Mid-Series [Spoilers AHEAD]

      Right now it sure feels like a HE is beyond everyone but yes i liked the devil kid story a lot too

      • 33 thoughts on “Love In Between Discussion Post: Mid-Series [Spoilers AHEAD]

        The devil kid was such a good villain! For once, a villain that’s unique, smart and gets a proper ending story.

    • 33 thoughts on “Love In Between Discussion Post: Mid-Series [Spoilers AHEAD]

      Agree, wulin competition arc was the one that made me sit up and watch.

  6. 33 thoughts on “Love In Between Discussion Post: Mid-Series [Spoilers AHEAD]

    – 29 and 30 are strong epis. 29 with Yan Yu’s death and 30 with Su Xuan’s comeback.
    – Annoyed by folks at Wu’er village just waiting around for Zhengyang palace to attack instead of preparing for some traps or anything to defend themselves. They had all the advantages because it’s their home turf. Even if it’s because the leader didn’t want to turn this into all out battle with many death counts… if it’s not for Su Xuan, a totally blind item, who went to save them, they all would’ve died anyway lol.
    – Jin Xu is good villain. He spouts honorable words, and carries himself like a noble, even when he’s scheming low-brow stuffs lol. He seems to actually care for Manqing and Changge too, though the latter could be because he’s Emperor Ai? His backstory doesn’t match, but we only ever knows it from Changge himself, who knows if his memory was altered or something.

  7. 33 thoughts on “Love In Between Discussion Post: Mid-Series [Spoilers AHEAD]

    I stopped watching after the first arc because I felt it started to go downhill for me due to all of the misunderstandings (that could’ve probably been easily cleared if communication and understanding were understood) that were going on. I get that it’s supposed to make the story more dramatic and interesting, but I just wasn’t feeling it. I’m not a fan of the push-and-pull relationship, where the couples push each other away and then get back just to do the same thing again… Personally, I think this story had so much potential to be very good, despite the rookie cast. The beginning, when they were all searching for the map, was so cool. I was completely drawn into it and I was totally invested in this drama, but once that was over, I just couldn’t get the same feel for the drama anymore…

    • 33 thoughts on “Love In Between Discussion Post: Mid-Series [Spoilers AHEAD]

      Well, that’s sad. I actually really love the story so far. I do agree to some extent that the romantic arcs are possibly the weakest part for the show….but I still enjoy it despite pulling my hairs at all the fall outs because these kids are flawed and inexperienced. But I also think the family and patriotism sentiments are better conveyed in the drama.

      At ep32 now and I like how the jianghu elders get a long farewell even though it felt a tad long but I think he represents a generation of older jianghu who needs to bid farewell to the current jianghu. And my gawd, how does ZQC always get to the most troublesome of situations…now he has to go against the whole wulin and his friends???

      • 33 thoughts on “Love In Between Discussion Post: Mid-Series [Spoilers AHEAD]

        Oh my gosh, if you’re a Jianghu elder, don’t emerge from wherever you are (secret holding cell, cave prison, isolated village, crazy stupor, etc.). Because it you do, you die!

    • 33 thoughts on “Love In Between Discussion Post: Mid-Series [Spoilers AHEAD]

      I really like the first arc too. It’s what captivated my interest and made a fan out of me. But that type of storytelling is unsustainable for a 43-episode drama. There has to be a bigger, all-encompassing back story or a weightier theme such as love, revenge, redemption, etc. or else this show will feel shallow and disjointed or for a lack of a better word, episodic.

  8. 33 thoughts on “Love In Between Discussion Post: Mid-Series [Spoilers AHEAD]

    Can someone tell me when Yun Luo brought the white crane tail to her shifu? Did I miss it?

    Also, does no one from Zheng Yang notice that a certain elder is missing?

    And so much for being top contenders at the martial arts tournament. Chang Ge and Zhu Yan sure got easily captured by mountain folks.

    Ahh, I miss the humour of the first few episodes.

  9. 33 thoughts on “Love In Between Discussion Post: Mid-Series [Spoilers AHEAD]

    Can i just say this jianghu is so small…there’s like only 4 or 5 sects lmao!

  10. 33 thoughts on “Love In Between Discussion Post: Mid-Series [Spoilers AHEAD]

    I love this series, what a gem! Best drama I’ve watched this year!
    I like the characters and hope they all get happy endings (unlikely, but I can hope!)
    I like the mix of storylines and the characters relationships – it’s interesting!
    I’m also very impressed by the acting skills of the cast, not only the main characters but also the side characters.
    Cinematography and music are BEAUTIFUL. (I really want this OST!)
    I can’t wait to see what happens next and I’m still hoping for happy ending!

  11. 33 thoughts on “Love In Between Discussion Post: Mid-Series [Spoilers AHEAD]

    I am up to date, how can this be a happy ending ??!!!🤣 ZQC is back to his scheming manipulative best, though at the expense of the things he love. He kind of breaks my heart when he reflects that he is ultimately his father’s son because he too sacrifices the people he cares for, for the good of the country…😭

  12. 33 thoughts on “Love In Between Discussion Post: Mid-Series [Spoilers AHEAD]

    I cheated and watched the final ep — and I’m loving it!
    Best historical drama this year for me! (OK, I admit I haven’t seen a lot LOL). Now go back to the previous episodes…

    • 33 thoughts on “Love In Between Discussion Post: Mid-Series [Spoilers AHEAD]

      LOL. I better get my finale post up. XD
