Knight of The Rose Review
Knight of the Rose is a short 24-episode RomCom in which the female lead is the male lead’s assistant and protector to his or her bodyguard in dangerous and physical conditions.
This is my first time watching Li Huan and Qin Xiao Xuan in main/supporting roles. The acting skills of the entire cast are quite good; however, I think Qin Xiao Xuan is the best in the entire team.
At least she shows some vulnerability in some supposed scenes, but she’s also shy and clueless in others. The male lead has potential.
The female lead is funny and for the most part, she does well. Although there were a few separate situations where she was weakened by the writers so she could be “rescued” by the male lead.
But mostly he was weak and he saved her and everyone from start to finish.
I also love how he has a great code of personal responsibility for the greater good and he’s the same in the army as he was when he was just a civilian.
I think this drama is enough to relax, don’t expect more. The acting is a little above average but you could say there is still room for improvement, especially in some scenes that are supposed to be dramatic and just feel a little stiff and forced.
