Till the End of the Moon Review
Till The End of The Moon is a phenomenal Chinese Wuxia drama. This is one of the best-made dramas in C-drama history, dare I say the best xianxia to date.
It has anxiety, love, pain, miscommunication, jealousy, grief, sacrifice, helplessness, and betrayal. Truly an emotionally draining story with fate and sad fate.
This series presents the theme of time travel for 2 individuals with 3 lives in 10,000 years. The plot is complicated, but executed with a Xianxia flair. I won’t go into details about the plot, let’s just say it’s about “enemy to lover”.
Get straight to the character. Tantan Jin is not an ordinary main male character who changes in an instant as soon as the main female character enters the game and is with him. He’s evil, born evil and the audience knows it, but you can’t stop loving him and defending him.
Viewers will be shown how he went from being bullied and tortured individual to the demon lord that everyone fears (we are amazed to see his journey). The audience will understand why he is the way he is.
It was the world that made it that way, they sowed the seeds if their doom was in the form of Tantai Jin. They made a Demon Lord with their actions. They dug their own graves and they are the ones lying in them.
I hope they don’t cover up the crime. I know it’s nearly impossible to show him as evil as in the novels ( Hei Yue Guang Na Wen BE Ju Ben ), but I wanted them to retain as much of his origin as possible with censorship and all. And here has the perfect crime count.
Tantai Jin’s character was also extraordinary in every way, actor Luo Yun Xi was extraordinary. He can change his personality in an instant and actually plays 4 characters. You can tell these characters apart by the way they talk and carry themselves.
I can’t explain but the way the guy looked, moved his body, moved his hands, and spoke was so strangely different.
But still, you can’t stop watching it. His face changed from innocently handsome to sinister handsome in seconds according to his mood.
When he smiles for the female lead or plots murder will bring fans to their knees. In some scenes when I watched it, I felt like I was watching a gothic horror.
Meanwhile, Li Su Su is no ordinary main female character. She is not a helpless girl who only seduces and seduces. She is very refreshing to watch and really has a strong female lead in xianxia.
In some incidents, you will find him to mean for the things he did to Tantai Jin and you will not like him but in the end, you get him he did that out of the world and even prolonged it.
The chemistry of our main coloring is extraordinary. Luo Yun Xi and Bai Lu looked good together, they had eye contact, they stole a touch, and a beautiful smile. You will not find anything that seems forced here.
As for the supporting cast, I won’t comment. They do their job well and their acting is good. But there are some characters that I feel lacking but it’s not a big thing.
One thing that was lacking for me is that due to the new sensor, they had to make a 56-episode drama into 40 episodes so the editing can seem choppy at times (although to be honest it doesn’t matter).
For CGI quality here is the best, really beautiful. The cinematography and camera angles are also excellent. Costumes, jewelry, and hairstyles are amazing. You can see they paid a lot of money for this production.
Then, is the drama Till The End of The Moon worth watching? Very decent, it has a fast-paced but unhurried plot and a straight plot. It may not be perfect but it’s definitely the best out there.

Overall, Till The End of The Moon is very well crafted and executed. This Chinese drama brings the whole genre up on one stage, not level up but up the stage.
It’s so well done that you don’t get bored because every character is interesting, the main plot has almost no plot holes, but since it was cut from 54 episodes to 40, there are a lot of missing scenes.
Nevertheless, I think the drama follows the novel about 65 to 70%, with tweaks here and there, but the main plot is consistent with the novel and that’s good.
I recommend this for you to watch, at least once. Don’t miss this drama. My rating for Till The End of The Moon Chinese drama review is 9,5/10.
