I don’t know if the two diametrically opposite review camps for xianxia C-drama Till the End of the Moon are just the fandom and the anti-fans being the most vocal or there are actually casual viewers who think either way. Because this drama is my definition of mid (borrowing youth lingo here) – nowhere near as bad as most xianxia dramas, a genre which only occasionally produce good stuff, but just mediocre in plot and direction saved only by lavish costumes and the strong character presence of male lead Luo Yun Xi. It’s like he’s acting in is own one man Shakespearean tragedy where every single tragedy from each of Shakespeare’s tragic plays is piled on him. Basically he’s Hamlet/Macbeth/King Lear smushed together in a xianxia emotional and physical torture porn. But being a mid drama doesn’t explain the further dropping Douban score to 5.6 with the criticisms sounding amplified. There is complaints about Luo Yun Xi being too thin that his leanness doesn’t fit the godly vibe, Bai Lu not being pretty or goddess level enough in visuals, the numerous gaffes in filming with modern things spotted, the dubbed dialogue not matching lip movement, the abrupt directorial cuts, and the OTP having no chemistry and it feels like everyone is acting in their own different show. I think there is some validity to each of these complaints but again nothing is to the level of that bad *shrugs*.
