Watch on Netflix


Oh my god, thank you so much Netflix for acquiring this TV series from Youku. I was getting fed up waiting for all the episodes from Youku on Youtube, and didn't follow up on the last few, but suddenly it went on Netflix. Yes!!!

Guys, this thing is amazing. Like Eternal Love amazing. This TV series is revolutionary for China. The Untamed which everyone praised from last year (and I couldn't get past the first 9 episodes) is supposed to be a bromance drama, but Word of Honor is straight up BL (boy love, yaoi), but it's done so cleverly, it managed to pass state censorship and become absolutely huge in China. 

First of all, there is nothing sexual or intimate here (cause censorship), but the chemistry between Zhou Zi Shu and Wen Ke Xing is insane. Ke Xing can f*ck you with his eyes and a fluttering fan, I am telling you. That outrageous flirt!

Also, this. Lots of spoilers but a very pretty video.

Both males are starting as antiheroes, unfeelling, ruthless and in Kexing's case downright devious, know as psycho in his circles. One is a former chief of a secret spy network who ordered or did himself many bad deeds, another leads powerful Ghost Valley, a network of criminals. Zishu left the spy network undergoing a procedure which is slowly killing him, but he doesn't care. He is content to drink wine in the sun and have no cares for the world, disguised as a lowly beggar. 

Kexing is in the process of execution of an elaborate revenge plan for the death of his parents in the martial world, when he meets Zishu and recognises him as his soulmate, and they both get entangled in the schemes of the martial world, the power struggle, and in the process find a new zest for life.

Beautiful scenery, and as it's wuxia, amazing fight scenes, the banter and the chemistry. It's tragic, haunting and the clothes are really pretty to match the faces. What else to wish for? I loved it! Hoping for season 2 here.

Ребята, я так рада что "Закон Чести", он же " Слово Чести" наконец-то появился на Нетфликсе несколько дней назад. Я смотрела его большую часть на Ютьюбе, где канал Юку его выкладывал эпизодами каждую неделю, и последние несколько эпизодов уже не дождалась, а тут они на меня свалились. Радости полные штаны!

Короче, это круто. Как " Вечная Любовь" круто. Снято по известному роману "Дальние Странники" и наделало шума в Китае своими высокими рейтингами. Слово Чести сравнивают с "Неукротимыми" прошлого года, которые я смотрела только до 9-го эпизода, так как мне совсем не пошло. Но если Неукротимые - это броманс, то Слово Чести - это самый настоящий Яаой и БЛ. И что самое удивительное - настолько все снято тонко и без каких-то явных намеков на интим между героями, что цензура его пропустила на экран. Так что не ждите каких-то поцелуйчиков и постельных сцен, здесь флирт глазами и поэзией, ну и веером Вэнь Кэнсина.

Из синопсиса:
Чжоу Цзышу (Чжан Чжэ Хань), бывший лидер секретной организации убийц, которая подчиняется только императорской семье. Устав от бесконечного кровопролития, Чжоу Цзышу покидает свой пост и пытается вести спокойную жизнь. Но он встречает Вэнь Кэнсина (Гун Цзюнь), хозяина Долины Призраков, который мстит за смерть родителей. Они становятся верными друзьями и отправляются на поиски сокровища, которое даст владельцу власть над миром боевых искусств.

По новелле Прист "Далекий странник".

То есть, все характерное для жанра уся ( боевых искусств ) здесь есть - шикарные боевые сцены, красивейшие пейзажи, очень красивая одежда, ну и конечно как же обойтись без трагедии и сожалений?

Но поднял на высоту эту дораму именно актерский состав. Цзышу и Кенсин - это какое-то чудо вместе, там такое притяжение и электрика. Очень, очень харизматичные характеры. Самое интересное, что начинают они свой путь антигероями. Цзышу жалеет о тех грязных делах и тех, кого послал на смерть на службе императора, а Кенсин - вообще остаётся действующим боссом криминальной организации Долины Призраков, и его подчиненные относятся к нему как к улыбающемуся психу.

Я смотрела с огромным удовольствием и очень надеюсь на второй сезон. Вот тут есть прекрасное фанатское видео с спойлерами, которое возможно вас убедит оценить эту дораму вместе со мной. Всё, пока!


  1. THis is what confuses me, I have seen the love for these shows, but if it is forbidden in China, how do they get passed it? Do they just really really imply things and never show?

    1. Absolutely! Everyone knows it's a BL drama, but on paper it's a story of strong brotherhood and all that. There are no sexual gestures or kisses in the drama, but there is a vast amount of little gestures and longing eyes which can be interpreted as romance. I guess it's a loophole in censorship?

  2. Many employers of labor in the country today conduct many kinds of tests before a candidate is employed to their fold. One of the tests often carried out is the hair follicle drug tests. This is the way of employing safe and healthy candidates to their fold. As said, there are other kinds of tests often recommended. However, a hair follicle test is recommended because of the efficiency of tracing drugs. Remnants are often deposited on certain parts of the body such as the hair and they can be there for ninety days. Hair drug tests are recommended for certain tests such as ecstasy, PCP, opiates, methamphetamine as well as cocaine, and marijuana. Whether the individual does not have any hair on the scalp the test is still possible. This is because hair from other parts of the body can also be used for that test. 00:43 / 00:44Zac Brown Cancels Tour Dates After Testing Positive for COVID-19Sponsored Content by Reason people fail the tests Many people do not pass this test for several reasons. So, from now on, utilize your shower sessions to prepare yourself for your upcoming hair drug test with this hair follicle shampoo, which is one of the best THC detox methods. Remember to wash off any items you used before that came in contact with your hair, as they can reintroduce or increase toxins in your hair. So, avoid any kind of things like pillowcases, beanies, hats, headbands, and bandanas, etc.In our fast-paced lives, many of us depend on cannabis for some relaxation and recreation. However, if you have an impending drug test just after a festive weekend, there is a high chance of failing it, which could cause a setback in your life. But, if you are smart, you can enjoy your cannabis and pass a drug test too.
