Personal Thoughts: This drama was good and has great theme to it. The main leads had great chemistry and had some hilarious moments. As addicting the drama was, it was kinda cliche but it didn't stop me from watching it.

Story: The overall story was great but there could been somethings cut out. The main leads should been together faster without so much drag to it. Let's just say the ending was read more perfect but without only a tiny flaw in one of the side stories. I really liked how the story went and cried at some point. It was somewhat emotional but no enough to let you cry every episode.

Acting/Cast: The cast was amazing everything went out well. Though the main leads weren't that glamorous and good looking, their amazing acting should be praised. In the story sisters looked like similar which made it more believable.

Music: Let's just say the music wasn't that good but was worth mentioning. Most of it was just background music and sometimes actually ruined the moment. But there was some good songs in an episode or two.

Personally, I believe whoever is wondering and want to watch a simple yet dedicating drama. This one is for you! The endings were usually suspenseful which made it super addicting. Stop reading and start watching!

Take your usual rom-com, shake it up and reverse all the roles. There, you have it— Across the Ocean to See You. A show where the female lead is the aloof, haughty protagonist that calls the shots! And the male lead is Mr. Nice Guy trying to win the affection of his boss.

The writing is smart and super funny. I love the banter between Su Mang and Zheng Chu, alternately playful read more and frustrated. The mad chemistry between these two leads leave you wanting more.

This is an easy watch (mostly). No maddening hateful characters that take over the entire show and leave you drained. The last third of the drama starts to get heavy and melo-like but overall it is a very well done romantic comedy with sprinkles of melo. Supporting characters and secondary OTPs complement the show well without overtaking the importance of the primary leads.

The show does have its share of scratch your head moments. For example, where's the baby bump Su Mang? And the ending to one of the characters is questionable but these are but minor quibbles.

Overall, very entertaining. And the OST is super catchy. Loved it.

Make a Recommendation More recs (3)Recommendations

Dramas that depict the growing of the relationship between a man and a woman. The woman is his superior at work and they live in the same building. The man is a bit timid, while the woman is known for her temper.

Gives of many similar aspects:
- strong female lead (who happens to be better looking and probably smarter than male leads)
- male lead who is generally selfless and give of an apathetic vibe at times
- couple are neighbors
- male leads ex is a generally shitty person
- family serves as a problem
honestly watching Across the ocean brought back a lot of Divorce lawyer memories, would recommend both if you have the time

    Still on the fence on this drama. Im worried, like others, about the last part of the drama where all the unnecessary melodrama/angst/misunderstanding happen.

    Was gonna watch this, but I really can't deal with another Les Interpretes. Is it worth watching before shit hits the fan and it goes all Chinese drama melo cray cray on me? Also note that I'll still probably finish it all the way because I'm a horrible obsessive completionist and must finish all the things.

    An interesting romance between the main characters but proved disappointing towards the end with the episodes being dragged for too long then rushed at the end, but still highly recommend this drama.

    Had a hard time rating this one because the first thirty-some episodes are basically a 10 for me, but the rest just nose dives into frustration. I ended up skimming or completely skipping eps. I liked the ending but I would have been happier if they'd lengthened that bit and shortened all the unnecessary angst. My love for the main couple in the beginning eps carried me through to a 8.5 rating.

      You captured my feelings exactly. The last 10 episodes were such a mess. The story had great potential if they had gone with the male lead serving as the nanny and the couple adjusting to the baby etc...

    I loved it. The couple had great chemistry and their interaction is just so refreshing, the dramas are in need of strong protagonists and male leaders who know how to treat a woman as seen in this story.

    The second male lead tangming is a really good friend and amazing brother but when it comes to love and handling relationships he is just stupid,weak,slow and he is the type i hate the most, going with the flow type. Sometimes he is so emotionless and bleh
