This drama is great! So beautiful, so touching, so sweet.. I love it!

Story: the story is wonderful, romantic, and dramatic. It's touching, so real. We can find love, true love, this kind of love that stay with you for life. For life, and after.

Acting/Cast: oh, God, Vic is amazing! He's perfect in this role, he's perfect for this kind of roles! He makes me cry so many times.. Eun Hye read more is really good, too. She plays the role of this little sweet and strong girl, and she can play it perfectly without say a word. Her eyes talk for her.. The rest of the cast is perfect, they're good actors, from Megan Lai, to the stubborn Andy Hui, to the funny Lin Mei Xiu. Thanx to all for their performances!

Music: touching, every song is perfect for the moment and for the emotions our lovers are living.. Beautiful the scene where Eun Hye/Shen Shen sings using sign language.

Rewatch Value: absolutely, I want to rewatch it!

Overall: this is a 9! A different final maybe could turn it into a 10.. But, I know, in the deep of my heart, that this final is a perfect final for this perfect story. This love story is absolutely THE love story.


"For the martians"... I know, we are a lot in this world. I hope we can find soon..

Vic Zhou is a handsome, talented actor, but he could not save this drama. It was utterly boring with the characters frozen as flashbacks played for minutes at a time.
The first episode starts with 2 children meeting in a hospital where the girl has been taken after a bus accident. Although no one can figure out why, it left her a mute. She can see and hear, but can't speak. That read more is the premise for the drama. Let's think about this for a minute. Millions of people are in accidents and are there mutes walking around using sign language?
The children agree to meet 13 years later. During the 13 years of absence they continue to love each other after only meeting for a few days, another absurdity.
The writer then uses continual contrived events to bring the two together 13 years later. For example, Wei Yi's car breaks down and Shem Shem just happens to be driving the same road at the same moment. Or Shem Shem is on a bus and Wei Yi gets on the very same one at the same time.
Around Episode 6 (this is not a spoiler, it is in the summary above) Wei Yi discovers he is dying. For the next 13 episodes the drama is set in mourning. The mood, tempo, and music slow down even more. There are no big surprises, everything is predictable.
I always cry at melodramas, but not this one. It was a relief at the end. If you want more of Vic Zhou, watch Mars or Meteor Garden.

    I was really sad when I realized what would be the ending, but I kept going with this drama... and now it's the third on my "Taiwanese drama top 5"". Vic Zhou is a great actor, really. He can act this role with passion and emotion and desperation and love for life...
    This drama made me think that life is to short to waste it <3

    As usually I despise the pathetic second leads, especially Zuo Jun, he's so selfish, he's basically telling her if I can't have you no one can which is not real love, it's possession. \
    He needs to stop being a selfish pr*ck and leave them be together. Ugh.

    I really like it. I'm still on Ep.11. It's beautifully written for it's time.

    Loved this. A serious tear jerker for me. Qi Wei Yi's ex was driving me crazy but she came to her senses and became a good support for him. And all of Qi Wei Yi and Shen Shen's missed meetings were a little nerve wrecking but again, it works out. The fact that Wei Yi is so tormented but trying to make the best of his situation is heartbreaking. I bawled throughout most of the last episode but it was a really beautiful story between the 2 main characters.

    Almost in every ep my blood was boiling and my mouth said "ja pier..." (polish vulgarism), but it not means, that i don't like it. Despite the fact that the end wasn't satisfying (for me) i still love it and now i know i'll back to this drama. Ach, Vic why you must be so handsome *.*?
    (yes, my english is still not good and i'm sorry for that xD)
