I am a fan of these kind of fantasy/romance dramas so I'm usually extra critical when it becomes to the story and plot.

I read from many places that this is kind of remake and ispired by korean drama 'you who came from the stars' even though this is really based on chinese novel series.
I admit, story sounds similar and female lead has similar traits with Cheong Song Yi's character but read more that's where the resemblance ends. And I'm actually glad that this was different from 'you who came from the stars'.

So we have self-confident actress Tian Jing Zhi (played by Wu Qian) who in the beginning is in distraught by getting dumbed by her childhood sweetheart boyfriend after proposing him. While venting her anger she gets into car crash and accidentally revives immortal Xue Ling Qiao (played by Kim Tae Hwan). Jing Zhi almost died but Ling Qiao with his abilities payed back the favor by healing her.

Ling Qiao, being lived in the earth for 500-something-years and being 'asleep' for 100 years he didn't know anyone and didn't have anywhere to go. The only person he could think of was Jing Zhi and thus he kind of forced himself as Jing Zhi's roommate.
This is where all the fun began, Jing Zhi being her bubbly and hyper self and Ling Qiao being serious and quiet.

I enjoyed the side characters Zhang Xuan Xuan (Shen Meng Shen), Li Yan Zhi (Fu Jia), Ye Chen (Xu Ke). I really wanted writers to concentrate on these characters more but I guess episode duration would have been too long. They were important to the story and all actors did great job representing them. This drama made me a fan of Xu Ke and I hope I will see him in more dramas in the future.

At first I felt in couple first episodes that plot isn't going anywhere. But those couple episodes was full of funny moments because Jing Zhi's character is kind of comical so I enjoyed it. Then plot started to take place soon and I was so into watching this. A little dissappointment was Kim Tae Hwan's performance, who as a novice actor didn't quite convey enough emotions for the viewer to feel it properly.

If you're awaiting some mind blowing romance from the start, you will be dissappointed. Scenes between Ling Qiao and Jing Zhi were sweet but romance evolved kind of slowly.

Main bad guy in this drama you can guess if you have good instinct and have watched this kind of dramas before. For me, I guessed who the bad guy was pretty quickly. But nevertheless, I was enjoying watching this. I felt like there weren't any extra character put there like an accessory but everyone had their own meaningful place in the story.

Only thing that was major disappointment for me was one plot turn happening in later episodes. All except that, I can say I am quite happy with 'My amazing boyfriend' and I hope they will make season 2!

Oh, and music was good too! I think I will go looking for OST ;) And I'm even interested to read My amazing boyfriend novel series if I ever find it translated it in english somewhere.

Overall; if you're a fan of fantasy and romance, this is definetly your drama.

I don't know what is wrong with me. This is totally not my type of drama, but I was hooked from episode 1. I watched this every chance I got in exclusion to any other drama. It is so fun and quirky with suspense and angst and tons of totally cute romance. The plot and the flow of the story is well written and directed. Although, I did guess who was the read more bad guy way early in the drama, I don't think it is the writers fault. It is just intuition. The extra characters that usually get on my nerves were needed for the actual story line and I enjoyed their interactions with the main characters. I appreciated the irony of them talking about second female lead as the girls' occupation were actresses. It was quite amusing. Also, it was interesting that the fantasy part of the drama felt ridiculously plausible. I even liked the ending. :-)

I don't know much about Chinese actors. Janice Wu was excellent as quirky, naive and somewhat silly Tian Jing Zhi. I didn't feel like she was stupid as some people felt. She seemed to pick up on things quite quickly once she had all the facts. She felt real to me and even through all the silliness. Kim Tae Hwan doesn't seem like much of an actor, but I cut him some slack since this is his first drama and he is model cute. He wasn't horrible as Xue Ling Qiao, but sometimes a little expressionless. The other actors were good too.

I enjoyed the music.

I might rewatch this someday..

If you enjoy fun, fantasy romance, then I recommend this drama.

They both have a supernatural lead that is trying to adjust to living in the human world. Even though the supernatural person is a guy. Also, one of them is also trying to get famous although the one is this drama is already famous. Both of these dramas are really good.
Recommended by Sarah Elizabeth
In both dramas, the male leads have supernatural powers. Both have a similar theme of male lead being away/asleep for 100 something years. After awakening, they must re-enter society and learn the ways of the new world as well as find the person that harmed them.

    In my opinion only what saved was the female protagonist who guaranteed me laughter, because otherwise I found a lot of senseless situation, very weak special effects and a novel that did not convince me until the end. The actor chosen male leader was very bad, completely unimpressive the whole drama, he was more to robot than to monster! I will not even comment on that highly nonsense end! I just did not drop because I'm persistent, but it was almost.

    Im okay with everything in this drama except fr the stupid cape of the villain. Im sure the purpose is to keep it mysterious. But its illogical to wear one at home. They could have just angled the camera to nt show the face. Play with lights instead. Honestly even with the cape i guessed who the villain was.

    Janice Wu is the actress who carries this drama. Some people may not like it but her animated expressions and actions made me laugh. I think everyone else was a little too muted, serious and the dubbing was hard to deal with (sometimes it is).

    I hope season two actually happens. I'm almost done with one, and it's awesome once you get into it. It's all so cute. The acting is a bit cheesy at times, but I'm a sap so I don't mind it.

    Watched 1 ep, but couldn't stand the lead female's crappy acting. THIS is how you act sad/ almost suicidal!? It came across as a mix of bland and comedic and very cheesy!
