Story wise, it was a little bit cliche the way the plot developed from episode 40 onwards.The first 40 episodes were interesting and it didn't feel like a daily drama at the rate it was going. I was very entertained, but episodes 40-the end got a bit more boring in comparison to the first 40 episodes. Regardless, I did like the plot, considering that it's a daily drama. At the very least, read more nothing about it tempted me to drop this drama. I think I kept watching because I wanted to know what happened to the second lead’s (Man Li-Vivi Lee)and Ying Qian’s (Bobby Dou's character's brother) storyline. The only flaw I saw was that this drama had a malicious second female lead, and that really annoyed me because it felt like it was completely unnecessary. I don’t usually like to compare dramas but since this is also a SETTV daily drama, I think Fabulous 30 was done much better. Vivi Lee was better in that drama; she was also the main female lead there.

Although the main leads were supposed to be Bobby Dou and PeiJia Huang's characters, I was more interested in Man Li (Vivi Lee’s) character and romance development. Her storyline had more chemistry than the main leads. To be honest, I liked the supporting characters more than the leads as well. Ying Jie’s (Bobby Dou) brother was adorable; I really liked his storyline. I wish it could have been shown more though. However, I felt that his plot line was better developed and made more sense, whereas I didn't really see how the main leads fell in love with each other other than the fact they were childhood best friends turn into secretly crushing on each other. The family scenes were heartwarming, albeit a little cliche, with the disapproving parents versus the warm-hearted parents. There was comedic relief as well; that was good.

Honestly, I’m usually pretty easily satisfied with the OST because I'm in the moment unless they are really terrible. So, I did like the music, especially the song played when Ying Qian’s (Ying Jie’s brother) storyline came on. My favorite character was definitely Shang de (Adrian Tan), who seems to be a newbie as this is his first major role, and I look forward to see him in more dramas.

I don’t think I would re-watch this drama actually. I personally like daily dramas, but I would only re-watch a few of my favorite scenes at most. Going through it all the way again would be too much. But, I do recommend this drama for those of you that like daily dramas like me, as well as multiple romantic storylines that are not developed within a few episodes, but rather a lot of episodes. Also, if you liked Fabulous 30 or anything like it (see my reviews), I do think you would enjoy this drama. (8/7.5)

    As most Taiwan series the acting is exaggerated and if you can't get used to it, you won't be able to fully enjoy the story. Add to that boredom and way too many episodes and I'm lost.

    I tried. But I barely reached episode 30. Over 70 episodes, it's just too much for me.

      Should do what I did and fast forward through episodes. I swear everytime Xia Man wined or cried I just wanted to smack her.

    Synopsis sounds very interesting but 72 episodes? Can't invest that amount of time. :(

      it was actually pretty good and not TOO draggy, especially if you like long t-dramas. It's a personal preference, but I actually like the daily t-dramas! :)
