Starring Leo Wu Lei (吳磊) and Rosy Zhao Lusi (趙露思), Chinese drama Love Like the Galaxy <星漢燦爛> aired on July 5 and immediately topped the charts as the current most-watched drama. The romantic chemistry between the two leads has viewers pining for more.
However, Love Like the Galaxy is proving to be a slow-burn romance, teasing the audience in the latest episodes by developing the emotional arcs between Lusi and supporting actor Yu Chengen (余承恩) while Wu Lei was left on the sidelines. In episodes 15 to 20, Wu Lei will be relentlessly pursuing Lusi, who rejects him and insists on being betrothed to Chengen.
It is not until the very last episodes of the drama when the main leads will fall in love and start a relationship. Many fans feel that the slow-burn romance is being dragged out for too long. Some wrote, “I’m losing patience waiting for the male and female lead to fall in love.” Others lamented, “This is an ancient idol drama. The love and romance is the primary focus. Why are the familial relationship scenes written better than the romantic scenes?”
Although the pacing caused grumbling among viewers, the series is nonetheless keeping fans intrigued and generating heated discussion. Love Like the Galaxy is split into two parts, with the first part airing from July 5 to July 27, and the second part airing later in 2022.
