So My Journey to You has been my most 180-degrees about turn in opinion for both leads Yu Shu Xin and Zhang Ling He as well as for director Guo Jingming. That it mostly releases 1 episode a day has made the slow burn even more painfully delightful, it gives me chance to savor each episode and really take in the details. It’s not just the narrative with the twists and turns but also the visual sumptuousness and Guo Jingming once again picking pretty faces that can act and deliver onscreen charisma in spades. Second leads Cheng Lei and Lu Yu Xiao have gotten plenty of buzz but also supporting actors Zuo Ye, Ai Mi, and Omid, not to mention scene-stealers with off on their own planet Jolin Jin and Sun Chen Jun as Gong Zi Shang and Jin Fan. Even better is the hilarious subtext that the showdown between assassin org Wufeng and noble stalwart Gong family is really the former training gorgeously emotionally messed up lady assassins as a dating service for the multitude of hot Gong men each with different personalities and quirks. The drama has turned the corner with 1/3 left of its run so please join the party and watch as it goes to rocks fall down with a sliver of hope, I’m thoroughly enjoying this drama sooooo much!
