I'm quite surprise i enjoy this drama. Because it's 32 episodes bruh! And usually, chinese or taiwanese drama doesn't make me interested to continue till the last episode. Sure Chinese or Taiwanese drama might be good in historical drama, but for me for a theme like this isn't that good. FINISH THIS! Just keep watching and enjoy the ride~ ANYWAY ; dear you EXO-L who haven't watch this, read my comment below if for a little hint
This drama kept getting worse, didn't watch the original but seems like a lot of filler in the 2nd half. Also, the acting from Tian Tian and the teacher feel very off. At first it seemed fine but later on it feels like they are just unskilled. The cast looks nice, but at some point that doesn't make up for the acting, this is coming from someone who never notices bad acting (correct me if I'm wrong..)
watch the original drama - the japanese version, no one just can topple the original version especially with the storyline, ost, and the way the characters were portrayed. I watched this drama and stopped for a while, but i am thinking of dropping it. I only watched it because of how much I love this story but sad to say, the dubbing (though i am quite used to wth that upon watching some chinese dramas), the acting (Lay needs more, really more practice, even the way he says Hallelujah Chance is super awkward to me), the main girl doesnt portray the Rei that I was expecting, and i didn't like the small guy friend they casted, he is idk, I guess the chinese casting team went too far to find someone act that character considering they are really copying the Japanese one. Lastly, the story, Idk why they cant make it right when all they have to do is to take notes from the original drama and they added unnecessary fillers. Oh well,...
most probably international viewers would prefer the original one. but i'm here because YIXING is the lead hahaha i think its not that bad i mean i watch chinese movie and their acting and the feeling is the same but i cant agree more the female lead lack so much and doesn fit i ship her with her husband instead of the lead actor
ok, I'm a fan of the original and even liked the korean version, but this version lacks dynamics, humour and the music and the female lead just do not fit. Sorry for the rant.
I'm just really disappointed that this gets such a high score compared to the original....
I watched the Japanese(original) one and the korean(remake) one.
I think I like the korean more,I like the japanese one but I don't like the female lead (I agree with @JayRandom 's comment about the female lead)
you're missing a great drama. Proposal Daisakusen, the Japanese version is a really great drama. The Korean one sucks though. I have watched 4 episodes of the Chinese version and so far, I must humbly say, without a bias, that the Japanese version delivers best.
I watched a bit of the japanese version and my main problem is I didn't like the female lead, her acting seemed too happy/playful/friendly which feels off considering that she rejected main character, whereas the female lead here makes it feel more dramatic because she acts more reserved, seems more vulnerable, shows anger, which fits better within this scenario where the main character has to make her happy, protect her, etc. Keep in mind I don't know the ending of the story so there may be a reason there.
I wont really push you to watch the original :) I am just giving my two cents here. Rei (the Japanese female lead) isn't that playful/friendly all throughout the drama. Maybe because you said you just watched a bit thats why. The Japanese drama focuses heavily on two themes Romance and Friendship, and there is no in between. While watching the romance of the two main characters, you are also watching the friendship of the 5 characters grow maybe that is why you can sense a happy, playful and friendly Rei which I can also say, you can sense that in all 5 characters. Maybe if you just continued, you can see how vulnerable Rei's feelings are. Anyways, thats it. Its up to you now :)
