  • Rewatch Value 6.5
In my opinion, this drama was all over the top. You'll end up hating and loving characters back and forth.
THREE WORDS: "Boring But Interesting", you may be like "What? That doesn't make sense!" At first I was like that, but then I begin to get used to it. You'll get used to it.

STORY:
The story was pretty good, I enjoyed it. It was pretty brand new to me. There were read more some plot twist, revenge, romance, and etc. For the first few episode, it's going to focus on Miao Miao (Kitty) and then to everyone.

ACTING/CAST:
Honest, the whole reason why I watched this was because I wanted find new drama with new faces, i'm kinda tired of seeing the same actress and actor (I.e Aaron Yan, Chris Wang, Sonia Sui). That's why when I was scrolling, this drama caught my attention.

Nown on to acting:
They were pretty new to me, and they amaze me. To me I feel some of their acting (Kitty, Dragonfly, and etc.) I'm really looking forward to some of these actors's/actress's new drama.

MUSIC:
The MUSIC......... The first time I listened to it, it got me alright. But as I was watching, they keep putting music like always. I was pretty tired of hearing the same songs. The only notable and worth listening to was "Be Yourself" by Genie Chuo and I don't know the other one but it was catchy.
Sometimes though, the music will foreshadow what's going to happen next.

OVERALL:
Pros:
+New Faces
+Catchy song ( only 2 though for me)
+Story is interesting, kept me thinking and excited for the next episodes
+Plot twist got me like "WHAT.......?"

Cons:
-Dialog drag the story a bit, they talked for about 10-30 minute during some episode
-Some characters are darn annoying

    They were crying the whole time and the plot was kinda predictable, but it was strangely addictive at the same time... Short, messy and sad, but I enjoyed it :)

    Strangely addictive drama and the story is not too bad either.

    This drama is pretty bad but also very watchable. The mystery is playing out very obviously, I can guess the plot from a mile away and I keep hoping for a really good twist. Not sure if it's going to happen. I feel like a lot of suspense of belief is needed to enjoy this drama (how coincidental that Miao Miao happens to be one of the childhood friends, granddaughter of a suspicious police chief and the best friend of the another suspicious man's granddaughter?). Oh and the fighting scenes are laughable! Honestly it's pretty bad. Maybe I'm too used to slick and intense fighting scenes from other dramas.

    That aside, I actually really enjoy the drama. The cast is pretty great and I like that there's none of that love triangles so far (apart from one-sided crush that's so not going to happen). Some of their acting is green but not too distracting. The guys need to smile more and be less grim-faced because the look is not good on them. The girls are cute too and none of those nasty personalities that seems to be a requirement for dramas. The music is decent, although overused as one commenter mentioned, but I like it so it doesn't bother me that much. So far, so good.

      That is the only flaw but not the first time seeing it in any drama; Korean, Japanese, Thai, Chinese, you name it!!

    I can see just one flaw so far. The music is perfect, but they overdone it. Sometimes I feel something bad gonna happen just because the music is playing like all the time. It just doesn't feel right.

      Totally agreed, the music is great but it's here all the time -_-
