My Lethal Ending Explained
Does the Chinese drama My Lethal Man have a happy ending? yes, My Lethal Man has a happy ending. At the end of the episode, Shen Man Ning and Xing Cheng managed to gather evidence against Cai Xuan about what he had done to his parents.
Cai Xuan initially refused to admit it, but when Lin Guang Yi turned on the recorded message from Grandpa Zhuang who had died before, Cai Xuan was shocked.
Grandfather Zhuang wanted Cai Xuan to start realizing the mistakes he had made and mend his ways. He knew all along that Cai Xuan was the one who tried to kill Mei Xuan and his family.
Grandpa Zhuang gave him a chance because he had lost Mei Xuan and didn’t want to lose another daughter again and again.

They sweetly profess their love for each other and learn that they should cherish those they love after what they’ve been through so far.
My Lethal Man Review
My Lethal Man is a C-drama with a normal plot and nothing new. But it’s not that bad because it’s not an ordinary drama with an unknown twin-brother plot.
Despite what many people think, I loved the drama. I’m feeling different here being so tired of how drama usually starts with the guy being mean at first then you never get to see his meanness once he’s with the woman. But these plays? It’s consistent.
It was the mystery male lead that first attracted me to My Lethal Man, but when you watch it you realize how perfect the female lead here is.
I get how most people can’t fathom the idea that the girl looks exactly like the male lead’s sister.
To be honest, I had the same feeling at first. However, when you realize they’ve been apart for 17 years without contact, you start to accept the plot more.
You will realize that yes, the man does love his sister with all his heart, however, he loved the idea of his sister when he was young.
He has no attachment to his sister’s face or the way she looks now that they are older because she didn’t spend years growing up with her.
When it comes to romance, this is where you will see how girls proactively fight for their love. She was the first to confess, and at every point, she wasn’t afraid to show her true feelings.
When he says “I love you,” he always follows up with the question, “Do you love me too?” (not in a sad and depressed way but in a light way).
With a keen eye, you’ll see how guys are always the ones to get the better ending in their relationships, especially with how polite the main girl is.
He always tells the main male character that he will protect him, is willingness to accept blame, him picking him up from work, him kissing her hand and other details. You’ll see how guys are always giddy and that girl really is her home.
For Acting: I think Fan Zhi Xin and Li Mo Zhi did a very good job. Both of them did well, he also played his part perfectly.
I love how lethal and lethal Fan Zhi Xin can be, as seen in most of the scenes. One thing you should pay attention to is the hair. You’ll notice how the scene plays out with her hair and these little details make the drama more enjoyable.
What I hate here is that sometimes, I can’t see the emotion on their faces because of the bleaching filter. When the shot was taken from far away, I could see how superbly the actors and actresses conveyed their emotions, but during the close-up shot, I couldn’t even see how the tears were falling down their faces.
Sometimes, it’s as if they’re trying to do it, crying without the tears that make it funny. Oh, how I can only wish Chinese productions no longer felt the need to cover up their actors.
