Since Men and Legends is on my short list, I checked out the first ep, which I saw ages ago and liked, but it was so long ago that I needed a refresher.

M&L is supposed to be about two young martial artists who try to solve a murder, prevent treason, have OTPs, and go through a wagonload of angst. All in 1920 Shanghai. So basically the usual.

But after ep 1, I maintain that the true legend and mystery of this drama is how come Dylan Kuo and Peter Ho are sporting completely modern hairstyles despite everyone else having period-appropriate hair. I don't think feathering, highlights, or earrings were much used by martial artists in 1920 but what do I know. Below pic doesn't show Peter Ho's hair very well but shows Dylan's perfectly in all its highlighted, conditioned glory:



And while this pic is not from M&L, this is exactly the cut + earring Peter Ho character sports in it. As a martial artist in 1920! ROFL.



I am most amused. You can never ever wreck the idols' hair :P

Tbh, I don't mind. I like this sort of hair a lot better than historically appropriate slicked look and it's about people who can kick through buildings, so how realistic is it anyway?

I won't watch this properly until I finish Warriors and Gong, but after that, here I come! Because snarking aside, I really liked the first ep.
