Stills from “Fairy Lake – Spirit of the Mo”


Unlike the above picture indicates, the drama is more of a romantic comedy than a fairytale drama. From a  corrupt-governor-turned-talking-egg to a jail buddy who refuses to get out of jail so she can finish digging her hole out, “Fairy Lake” was a refresher against all the intrigue dramas. Focused on forbidden fairy-human loves, “Fairy Lake” goes on two main relationships between the seventh fairy and a Mohism disciple and General Huo Qubing, as well as the third fairy, General Wei Qing and Princess Pingyang.   Gong Mi actually works the naive cuteness of her character quite well.  The two male leads, Chen Long and Zheng Kai, are both quite charming, and the other characters are generally comedic relief.

Fairy + mortal = trouble
