I started this drama with the expectation of a fun drama. If that is your reason for watching, don't bother. While I watched all episodes, it was more for seeing Mike He's beautiful self. When he wasn't on the screen, I was playing solitaire on my phone.

I half suspect that the writers have serious issues, as the drama was extremely slow until the end, when suddenly everything exploded and left you read more dumbfounded. I had to watch the end a second time just to make sure that I didn't miss something, the change was so drastic.

If you are thinking about watching this, it may be more entertaining to watch grass grow... it will certainly by more comprehensible.

I just finished watching this near midnight and I don't want to put away writing this until the morning. What I'm feeling now demands to be written down.

I don't think I've watched any drama until now that felt so absolutely pointless at the end of it. That doesn't mean that everything was great until the end though.

First of all, it was real slow. Throughout most of the episodes, there isn't read more anything much happening than characters wallowing in emotions or doing what they do without any background score.
There was no getting used to it, you just had to bear with it. Mostly you bore with it because, while the screenplay inched along and something finally happened, the actors emoted well and those scenes were good.

Also, I can say with certainty, if it were not for my liking both Mike He and Ariel Lin, I wouldn't have made it even halfway through.

And, Then there is the ending..
After you sit through it all, the way they choose to end it is nothing but absurd. I didn't fully watch the last two episodes. There was no point to continuing with the torturous-ly slow process when the only reasons for watching the show took a beating.

That's all I can put into words now. The only reason any one can have of watching this,in my opinion, is if they like the lead actors, because it's a tough ride even then.

    I honestly don't understand the hate for this drama, I'm about halfway through, and though my feelings may change since I heard the ending was absurd, I'm actually enjoying it right now. I don't think it is slow, but I also don't like dramas where the two main leads fall in love in the second episode either, they are showing their progressing relationship in a believable way and I for one, appreciate that.

    -UPDATE: I've just finished and I stand by my original comment the ending was actually refreshing and I enjoyed the drama up until the final credits rolled in, it was different but still a good watch.

    The first episode is boring... I'm thinking about skipping all the way to the last episode, to see this ending everyone's going on about.
