Modern Billiards and Romance C-drama Amidst a Snowstorm of Love with Wu Lei and Zhao Jin Mai Wrap Run and Gets Douban Opening Ratings of 6.8

With C-drama Amidst a Snowstorm of Love with Wu Lei and Zhao Jin Mai, I feel like a mom who should be having fun watching their kid compete in a game but instead I zoned out but will perk up to clap loudly should he/she win the match kind of situation. The modern sports themed romance C-drama just wrapped its three week long run and by all accounts is a solid offering. I say by all account because I watched two episodes on premiere day, liked but didn’t immediately love it, told myself to catch up over the weekend and then never got around to it. I will not forgive myself if I don’t watch the entire thing because this is my little boy Lei Lei’s last idol drama for god knows how long and it also does look up my alley with all the cuteness, no crazy antics of baddies, and lots of pretty visuals. The opening Douban ratings are also out with the conclusion of the drama and it’s an okay 6.8, nothing to write home about but also not embarrassingly low. Some complaints I did hear include the leads having no chemistry, Wu Lei being way too eye intense per usual, and Zhao Jin Mai giving off shy nervous rabbit vibes.
