    • Focus on Wallace Chung and ignore the other half of the drama lol (btw has anyone read the book? is it good?)

      • I finished the translated novel recently, and I liked it. Kinda long though. Baipingting is known for her brains not her beauty, so idk if Angelababy fits as the main female character. There were some sad moments, and misunderstandings which i found frusterating, though it was resolved later on. I liked how loyal Chubeijie was to baipingting.

        • I don’t have much time to read and my Chinese is still a work in progress. My “spoilers” are really just translations of plot summaries I have read online… If any readers of the original novels for these adaptations notice any problems with what we wrote, let us know how we can change it… or maybe we will send you the plot summary we were basing it off of so we can get down to what the heck is going on since sometimes adaptations change things.
