So I’m 10-episodes into newly arrived youth romance C-drama Lighter and Princess adapted from a popular web novel and it’s as good a time to do a first impression now that the initial Douban ratings are out. It’s got a 7.2 ratings and that feels about right to me, 10-episodes in I like the drama but don’t (yet) love it. I like the adult current period better since it’s angtsy but it’s only the first episode plus change before it goes back to their early college days and that requires more fast forwarding at this time. The computer science major antics, rivalry, and coding is so broadly written with hardly any interesting supporting characters, this really is a Chen Fei Yu and Zhang Jing Yi two person show. Between the two, his Li Xun is more interesting and layered than her Zhu Yun but performance wise he’s coasting more on his personal charm and suitability to play this smart bad boy type whereas she’s actually acting and doing a solid job at it. The story will probably get better once the two actually get together, right now he just kabedons her once or twice and episode with a lot of sardonic eye lifts and she’s constantly in his grill over stuff despite claiming she’s totallynotatall interested in him. The drama is an easy breezy watch, deft directly with decent music and fast-paced story lines, so I recommend for anyone looking for the next bad boy actor of C-ent now that the former IT one is in actual jail, Chen Fei Yu is the real deal who sells IDGAF attitude from his very pores and I love it! Ah Se is definitely got them looks in this drama.
