The Faded Light Years Review (Taming My Boss Chinese Drama)

I’m reviewing this drama because I saw very few blogs explaining this and most said it was lacking. However, some comments on youtube said Taming My Boss (fake title) was good so I thought I should review it.

Let’s start with her acting, Xing Fei is a great actress and I like her in many dramas but she may be less interested in me in this one.

The main male had quite a bit of chemistry with her which was great. But I keep wondering if deep down he hates it because it seems like it does sometimes.

The acting from the supporting characters is decent but too tight in some scenes too which makes things really bad.

The story has too many flashbacks which could easily be reduced to just 20 episodes.

The ending is also too rushed. The mother and best friend of the female lead really made me nervous.

Too many conflicts in a row and the plot feels very predictable, like I said it should only be 20 episodes.
