I started liking this drama up to mid-point, then I got to episode 12 and was quite tired of the repetitive theme. I also didn't like Oh Chen's character and Xia Mo was also getting on my nerves, so I skipped to episode 14 to see if the way the storyline was going would improve...unfortunately it did not...the end 'sucked'. I was disappointed with this drama which for me had so much read more potential. As the storyline progressed towards the end it just seemed too contrived and unrealistic. I would not really recommend this drama or re-watch it.

I loved this drama so freaking much!
It was one of those dramas that you try, and you're uh no. But then you watch it again, and the beauty of it is brought out.

I'm not a big fan of Barbie, I think she's beautiful but I can't say that I haven't felt disgusted by her, for no reason whatsoever. Peter Ho is like half way in between, I loved him at read more a time and was also pretty turned off by him at another time. I love Huang Xiao Ming though, and I've watched a crap load of his dramas so yeah

I find male leads (and their love triangle relationships) very similar. In both dramas there's one man, who has a special bond with female lead, they understand each other greatly, and the second man, who's very rich, has a lot of power and won't stop from anything to steal the female lead and make her be with him.

If you like Dolphin Bay you may like Summer's Desire. Both story involve a love triangle between a rich 'first love', poor girl and charismatic guy in the entertainment industry. The trials and anguish that these three go through before a resolution in the end. While I liked the ending of DB I did not like it in SD, merely because I thought the wrong choice was made.

    the Only Asian-drama I saw w/ a true "Love-Triangle ".... she loves and was in a relationship w/ both men .... ..... ..... a "Roller-Coaster ride" .... ..... "Nail-Biting" to the end to see who she'll choose.... .... the heroine is Strong, Icy and Manipulative but kind, wise and intelligent .... .... until the end, viewers are split as to which man is their favorite ..... ...... .... .....Not typical drama at all !.... ..... .... loved it <3<3<3<3<3

    Saw it a 2nd time it even more than the 1st ..... so much more appreciative of the Great performances by the three leads ...... I now see more layers of meanings, more of the irony , the well developed characters .....

    The first half was really good, but I got bored the second half because it started to drag :/ I didn't like who she ended up with either. I know many people liked this drama, so please don't get mad at me for saying this :P Anyways, a 6 from me! :)

    A NAIL-BITER, love-triangle like no other......the only Asian Drama I've seen where nobody knows who the leading lady will end up with, until the last 15 min. of the last episode.......and the leading lady is like no other, a very realistic character, who manipulates both guys to get and protect what she wants.....She is still likable, despite of it.... LOVE IT!!!

    one of my favorite Taiwanese dramas, I really loved it. With a lot of Taiwanese dramas I feel like they drag on for way too long but with this I wanted it to be twice as long, was sad it was over.

    Plus I was Team Ou Chen =)

    This drama TRIPPED me out. I wanted BOTH guys to have the girl. They both loved her to death and they were so devoted to her. And she loved them also. The director should have done the unthinkable and taken the taboo path by letting her be with both guys! Then I wouldn't be feeling all mixed feels right now. I feel happy that she ended up with him but sad that she didn't end up with the other guy. My feels counteract each other -.- Nevertheless very enjoyable drama - not the best but good enough to watch and spend your time on!

    One thing T-dramas never fail me on are their kisses. The kissing scenes in this drama is purely wonderful.
