    Woot! Woot! episode 23 comes out today!can't wait to find it and then download it, and then watch it and then.... opps off-topic there, sorry! got a bit too excited. Anyways heres the real deal

    How did anyone watch this series?

    - did you just listen and understand the mandarin?
    - or did you just rely on the chinese traditional subtitles?
    - or did you manage to find some english subtitles?
    - or was someone beside you translating everything?

    For me I don't understand mandarin that much but I did understand some of it, I mainly relied on the chinese traditional subtitles. By watching this drama I think Ive managed to improve my mandarin vocabulary by a bit.

    Oh I see, was it hard finding the english subbed ones?

    At the beginning when I was going to watch the first episode I was thinking to myself whether to look for a english subbed one or watch it as it is, I wasnt so sure if i was going to understand the mandarin or the chinese subtitles. In the end I found it ok without english subs.

    just watch it in mando with chinese subs even though i don't really understand
    but its a good way to improve your chinese, but sometimes u can get too reliant on the subs

    Up till episode 20 I was grabbing/watching Randomfandsubs english hardsubbed version, but recently they change there policy and stuck it up youtube at 10 x 10 minutes per a section. It very annoying and the quality is really bad. So for episode 20-23 I've been grabbing the RAW version and struggling to watch it as I don't understand about 30% of the mandarine. Still the series is good and I want to finish it.

    Lol your smart just like me, same what i did, but i did find myself constantly looking at the subs too.

    Your very smart :D

    Ah, thats a shame, because the storyline was very captivating if you understand every important bit.

    english subbing wasn't fast enough for me, i was driven to watching it on youtube and using the chinese subtitles to guide me through what I couldn't understand. Like the others were saying, if you are learning mandarin, it's a great way to build up your vocabulary.

    Well, i'm from taiwan, so it wasn't hard for me to understand.
    And as subs are coming slowly, i can't stop watching it.

    I watched it on a website called mysoju.com or something like that...it's like youtube or w/e. I use it to view dramas when I'm too lazy to download it.

    I wanted to watch this drama so badly, but I can't understand Mandarin at all. Like others it's hard to find subtitled dramas. Boo Hoo.
