  1. I enjoyed Novaland with its second ending. I can handle a sad ending but the first one was really artificially cruel and for no reason.

    I noticed both share the same female main lead. Much as I am curious about this one, I am still not convinced by her. Her acting has not yet matured and was lacking of depth in Novaland. Fortunately she is gorgeous so it was still pleasant to watch her. But without maliciousness she belongs more to a high school's year-end play.

    1. I haven't seen Novoland so I can't exactly comment but a lot of people tell me good things about it, will try to watch when I can.

  2. I really like Guan xiao tong since I first saw her in to be a better man, she was really good in there. People who have prejudice towards her from Novoland, I recommend you to watch her in To Be A Better Man :). I also began watching this fantasy wuxia drama because of her. Really love her character. Yes, she is the good and innocent Princess but not naive and had been helpful many times, unlike Heng AI whom I came to dislike a few episodes later. (I really wanna state my reasons but don't want to spoil for those who have not watch)
