This is a surprisingly entertaining series and not what I was expecting. Literally, it captured me with its portrayal.
This series utterly confounded me. I did not understand it – initially. The story was choppy, incoherent at times, and made little sense to my western-oriented mind. Frankly, I did not understand the fairy-tale related title and what it had to do with the series. Humbly, I want to explain my bewilderment of this series from two vastly different perspectives.
Unique is not quite the right word to describe this series, including its title. Flippant comes to mind, but still alluring.
This is a BL series that defies description. To say that it is phenomenal would be an understatement.
This series is simply dazzling and a pure work of effulgence. It is breathtakingly beautiful and a stunning assemblage of artistry. It comes close to being a visual masterpiece with its juxtaposition of ancient and modern settings.
If anyone is familiar with the phrase “Alla Famiglia” made famous from the movie “MOONSTRUCK”, this is its Vietnamese counterpart. It is all about family and trying to fit in.
I absolutely enjoyed this short BL series for its entertainment value. It was charming, sweet, enduring and had a surprisingly good message and story. It is a simple tale of individuals falling in love, experiencing unrequited feelings and overcoming jealousy. Furthermore, it is told clearly and effectively with great dialogue.
Winsome, sweet, fun, and absolutely adorable. This is a coming-of-age series filled with the cutest and honestly most androgynous looking actors I have ever seen. That is NOT a negative criticism, but simply an observational comment that added to the enjoyment of this series.
Brilliant, stunning, and a genuine love story. This is yet another fantastic Vietnamese BL series that more than outshines BL dramas from other countries, even those with legions of fans.
When I heard about this new Vietnamese BL on the social media, I had my presumptive notions. Although Vietnamese BL dramas have brilliant Cinematography, they are sorely lacking when it comes to having a consistent storyline.
