When he first comes across the gorgeous computer science major Bei Wei Wei, the infinitely talented wunderkind immediately falls in love. But it’s not Bei’s looks that he notices; it’s the ridiculous mastery with which she is commanding her guild and owning read moreeveryone in an online multiplayer game that makes her impossible to forget. Now, Xiao Nai must use his skills both in real life and online to capture the adorable but dorky Bei’s heart. But does their love have the XP to succeed, or will this relationship never level up?

I'm gonna confess, I'm not the perfect viewer to chinese dramas but this really make me realize two things:
1. I have no problem focusing in long dramas
2. I can be patient with the right plot and drama.

Since the first episode to the end, gonna say is cute, lovely, and NORMAL. And yes when I say normal, I mean about two people falling in love (ofc, in this case is read more a drama and always will be a drama) as a normal couple. Without dramatic plot twist, or mean people around (well, I'm not saying they decided delete all the stereotypes haha). And that's what I was waiting for, because sometimes even when I want to run away from my real life and escape to dramaland , in others I also need to watch a realistic and cute couple thing, as all these living in harmony around us.

I you want a refreshing and lightly drama, This is your drama!!!

Story 9/10
CHdrama needs to be better producing a drama.
But overall, the drama is good , the plot is plain but refreshing, and the leads have a good chemistry.

Gamers on board,
See ya!

Story: A sweet and light love story. The difference? The focus on online games which gave the drama some fantasy element and the interaction between friends living in the campus. If you are saturated with too many complicated love stories, this is the drama that will give you a breath of fresh air. You'll find yourself smiling most of the time. One smile = alluring. Many smiles = Excellent! My congratulations to read more the writer who also happened to author Shan Shan Comes to Eat - another nice sweet romance drama worth your time. I'm off to re-watch it now!

Acting/Cast: At first I was a bit worried when Zheng Shuan was cast in the role of Wei Wei. The novel described Wei Wei as a beautiful young woman with the perfect body and frankly speaking, Zheng Shuan's not the best around when it comes to having curves where curves should be. The movie version of this drama cast Angelababy as Wei Wei which was closer to the description of Wei Wei in the novel. So, having watched the movie first - I had to adjust to seeing a mediocre-looking Wei Wei in the drama but after a few episodes, it became a non-issue as the story took precedence. The shining star here is Yang Yang. His boyish charm shone through. He alone pulled through the chemistry with his leading lady when Zheng Shuan was a little stiff to start with. Watch out for those scenic and romantic scenes....and kisses! The dialogues were also excellent!

Music: Passable but it is not the music that attracts. It's the sweet love story.

Rewatch value: Highly re-watchable. Lots of sweet scenes.

Overall: Addictive. Sweet. Smile inducing. Makes me wanna re-live my younger days in Uni and fall in love again. Highly recommended.

    This story is quite plain and simple but that is what made it special for me. You should give this show a try, If you are looking for something light-hearted and a slow and steady developing romance.

    I wonder if they will remake this Korea. I'm guessing many MMO devs out there will try to offer their MMO for the drama to use lol

    I really love this drama. The main lead couple is so different from your usual drama couples.
    It's worth a watch just for them.

    The pacing and side stories are all over the place though. I also wished they had more in-game MMORPG stuff/scenes :D

    I would even say that I wanted the show to be longer to be honest.

    Again, the BEST thing about this drama is the main couple, no up and downs, just steady progressive relationship - "secure" is the best word to describe their relationship.
    Sure there are parts where others try to separate them, but the couple just brush it off and ignore it lol. It's really one of a kind relationship in "Drama land".

    That said, I know some might not like it because of that. I know most of us watch RomComs for the highs (happy/sweet) and lows (sad/melodramatic) of the relationships when it comes to Asian dramas, so this might be too different from the usual.

      Give this a chance. The Movie had to cut a lot of stuff.

      Plus the actress/actor portrayed their character differently. (WeiWei is better portrayed in the drama)

      The show contains scenes from different universities, it doesn't actually feature a single one. They are all located in Beijing though, at least as far as i know.
