    Please stop using the ratings as a complaint board that's not what it's for. This drama was licensed less than 24 hours ago and I was made manager less than a week ago it takes a second to get this around. Patience, my friends. Patience.

    As chief editor, I had the honor of really diving deeply into this drama's story and characters. I like how this was a far different take on a martial arts story than usual and has a greater focus on a cast of characters, rather than just two leads, and supplied us with a variety of interesting characters. Ivy Shao, Li Mengmeng, and Zhao Yue did wonderful jobs playing my favorite characters (I hope to see Zhao Yue in more dramas!). I liked the concepts of gender subversion this drama played with, like Song Xiaomi being a tough taekwondo expert who wears makeup and dreams of a happy marriage with kids and Cheng Yanan being a brash tomboy who still feels like a girl but doesn't want to have to change who she is to be seen as one, though it did balk in a few areas, like being really hetero-normative and reinforcing many old concepts of gender roles. However, despite this, all the girls finding partners wasn't framed as them giving up their strengths or changing themselves to mold into a certain idea of femininity, but rather them finding partners who suited them and liked them as they were. I liked that a lot! As for the story, I enjoyed it a lot, too! We see a lot of different plot threads come and go, so the story is more rich than just "boy gets with girl." My only gripe is how the deceptiveness of one character wasn't demonized the way it should. Like his lies were VERY messed up. All in all, a fun and interesting drama! I'm glad I decided to check it out in spite of my initial disinterest and that I had the honor of being the chief editor for the English team.

    This drama looks nice and is well acted. I'm especially a fan of Landy Li and Lu Jianyu, who play Chizi and Sanshui, but ultimately the drama suffers from pacing issues. Despite each episode's length and the total number of episodes, things progress very slowly and a good amount of the events that take place are repetitive or unnecessary to projecting the plot. As a book, this story probably did a lot better because even slow events could be made interesting through nice prose and observations of the character's thoughts, but when transferred into the format of a drama whoever made the screenplay didn't utilize points of the plot effectively enough to convey the major parts of the story in a way that was emotionally appealing. More than anything, the drama feels like a long look into the daily lives of four young adults, which could have been more exciting, but was played out so simplistically that it doesn't have the same appeal as more dramatic high school dramas. I wouldn't call it a bad drama, but it definitely wants to be more of a realistic look into the lives of high school kids than an entertaining one.
