All Aboard… The Golden Eyes

It’s About…

Zhang Rui (Lay), a timid pawn shop employee, who gains the power of the “golden eyes”, which turns his life upside down.

I Like…

The main character Zhang Rui, and not because he’s played by Lay. Rather, I like his timid, quiet personality. He’s very relatable for a person like me. His first scene in particular was one I’ve lived countless times before.

The golden effect when Zhang Rui’s powers activate.

I Don’t Like…

The female lead, she’s unbearable. She’s supposed to be the tough female cop type, except she walks into a man’s hospital room having decided that he’s guilty of associating with the robbers who almost killed him, and subsequently pressures him into admitting to a crime he’s innocent of by asking increasingly stupid questions, and being super rude at the same time. Nope.

The production values aren’t that great either. The dubbing is off-sync.

The plot isn’t giving me anything to be interested in either.

Keep Watching?

No, probably not. I’m a bit disappointed about it, too, because a Twitter friend pitched it as “this guy gets super powers and uses them to get rich and help people”, which sounds very compelling but… I don’t like anyone except for him, I hate the female lead, and I’m not very interested, so. I’m not going to waste my time on 56 episodes of this.
