Starring Bai Lu (白鹿) and Luo Yun Xi (羅雲熙), the highly anticipated fantasy drama Till the End of the Moon <長月燼明> has premiered to a great start and is topping the popularity charts. While the drama is generally praised by netizens, the drama is not without criticism and netizens can’t help but complain about the drama’s poor dubbing and camera filtering
In the drama, Li Susu (Bai Lu) witnesses the death of her father and loved one perished by the hand of demons. In an attempt to stop the demons from causing more harm, Li Susu is sent back in time to stop the demon lord from awakening and assumes the identity of Ye Xi Su, a general’s daughter who is married to Tantai Jin (Luo Yun Xi), the future demon lord.
After premiering more than six episodes all at once, netizens notice that the dubbing is out of sync with the actor’s mouth movement. Netizens wrote, “The out-of-sync dubbing is really frustrating. The greater the expectation [for the drama], the greater the disappointment.”
Although high-definition editing is generally appreciated, netizens complain that Till the End of the Moon uses too much high-definition camera that exposes Bai Li’s blemishes, Luo Yun Xi hair covering and his ear piercing. The netizens wrote, “It doesn’t have to be this high-definition, add some filters!”
Despite the blunders, netizens were impressed by the drama’s special effects and costume designs and acknowledge that the production team has spent a huge sum on the special effects. Many netizens praised the scenes where Luo Yun Xi used his demon eye powers and described it as being vivid.
The netizens also praised the cast’s acting. Netizens were especially touched by Bai Lu’s explosive acting and praised her ability to portray sadness, anger and hatred. While some netizens are concerned that the plot is too cruel, the drama is recognized for adding lighthearted and funny scenes.
Overall, netizens agree that the drama’s quality is above average and agreed that the production blunders had largely been addressed after the first episode. As the drama continues to air, netizens are curious about its rating and seeing if it can surpass last year’s top drama Love Between Fairy and Devil <苍兰诀>.
