White Cat Legend Review

I’ll be completely honest here – I initially dropped this drama midway through episode 2 because of all the cheesy, childish antics. But something told me to give it another shot, so I listened to my gut and consulted some friends who stuck with it. And I’m really glad I did, because this turned out to be one of those rare dramas that just keeps getting better with each episode, especially after episode 5 or 6. Trusting my instincts paid off big time.

So, let’s dive in. This show is all about friendships woven together through some seriously mysterious “meow-stries.” Get it? 😉

First off, the pros: At first, it seemed like each case was separate, but as the story unfolded, you realize they’re all connected to this original case from three years back. It’s all about Li Bing, who lost his father to this shadowy organization of masked assassins and ended up turned into a cat. The story revolves around him and his crew at the CJR, along with a new kid, Chen Shi, who becomes like a little brother to Li Bing. Plus, there’s Qiu Qing Zhi, Li Bing’s childhood bestie who’s now on the opposite side due to a big misunderstanding.

And let me tell you, the characters in this gang are fantastic, especially Qiu Qing Zhi, who I wish we saw more of. Chen Shi is a standout too, being cool with Li Bing’s cat form from the get-go and rallying everyone around him as a “Cat Hero” towards the end.

The villains are no slouches either. Yi Zhi Hua starts out pretty helpless but transforms into this sociopathic loony who’s seriously terrifying. And Chen Shi’s brother, CJ, turns out to be the real deal when it comes to his dad’s murder. The layers in this show are like peeling back an onion – it’s deep.

But there are some downsides too. Like, I really wanted to see the Empress’s face – that mystery was killing me. And who even was Du Zixu? He was a big deal in the story, but we never even saw him.

And then there’s Qiu Qing Zhi’s death – that hit me hard. He was such an important character, and his demise felt unnecessary. As for Yi Zhi Hua, I can’t say I felt any sympathy for him, even though Li Bing did in the end.
