The two-part, breakout drama, Love Like the Galaxy (月升滄海), is coming to an end. With the final episode to air at the end of the month, Tencent Video is allowing members to pay an additional fee to see the ending before its public release. Allegedly, more than a million eager fans have signed up and paid to see it first. Although the drama ends on a happy note, the last ten episodes are allegedly heart-wrenching, causing many fans to cry and lament that it is nearly “too painful to watch.”
Fans recounted five classic scenes from the drama that were tear-inducing, including: (1) when Leo Wu Lei’s (吳磊) character, Ling Buyi’s past was revealed; (2) when Rosy Zhao Lusi’s (趙露思) character Cheng Shaoshang was determined to break off the marriage; (3) when Cheng Shaoshang and Ling Buyi got engaged; (4) the reconciliation between Cheng Shaoshang and her mother; and (5) the death of the empress after her resignation.
Ling Bu Yi’s true identity was not revealed until episode 48, when it was exposed that he is actually Huo Wushang. Ling Buyi and Huo Wushang looked similar when they were younger. When the Huo family was to be executed, they exchanged the two children in order to save young Huo Wushang’s life. Raised by the enemy all these years, Ling Buyi/Huo Wushang was set on exacting revenge. In order to keep Cheng Shaoshang safe and not drag her into the mess, he decides to take revenge on the eve of their wedding. Although able to avenge his family, Ling Buyi/Huo Wushang fell into despair and depression.
Sent to guard the frontier after killing Ling Yi, Ling Buyi and Cheng Shaoshang were separated and tried to move on with their lives. Five years later, Ling Buyi is finally summoned to return to the city. They meet again when Cheng Shaoshang is in danger and Ling Buyi comes to her rescue at the risk of his own life. Although the couple eventually have their happing ending, the events leading up to it have viewers on the edge of their seats, on the verge of tears, and pining for the couple’s reunion.
Furthermore, viewers were disappointed to learn that the couple’s actual wedding scene was not included. They lamented, “I beg the director to film the extra episode and let the couple have their sweet wedding! Do it for the fans!”
