    since its showing on tv now, I'm wondering what sort of plot is it.

    I watched the 1st episode(skipping half an hour of footage)

    seems like it's mainly about the past.

    is the untamed supposed to be only about the past or what? if not, which episode is the "present"?

    is the plot also any different from the anime/manhua/novel?

    I'm really not good with flashbacks so I tend to read them half heartedly. thus my skipping of nearly the entire episode.

    looks kinda fake to me too.

    I'm sorry I'm not a diehard fan of the novel. The author's other works, sure. but I havent finished the novel of this drama adaptation

    the show has 3 segments. 1-2 is the present, ep 3-32 is the past, and ep 33-50 is the present. so yes you can say it’s mainly about the past since it takes up 3/5 of the show.

    the plot diverges the most from the novel out of all the adaptation. I would say it matches the novel around 70%...

    You should watch from ep 1 to ep 50!!! It is so good, and so worth it. At first, I was hesitant about the flashback, but the flashback provided so much story into the present. You need to watch from the start to understand why the MC is the way he is ^^!!!! This is one of my fav dramas!!!
