Xue Hai was a certifiable dork when he first arrived in Hangzhou. After his schoolmate Bao Zhu saved him from bullying, she became his first love. Then, a misunderstanding caused them to lose contact when she moved back to Taiwan. He thought she dumped him. So he transformed himself from a dork to a hunk in order to seek revenge.

First off, if you're looking for a light-hearted, funny and heartwarming drama, then this is it for you.

STORY - I personally loved most of the storyline. I really enjoyed it. It was cute, funny and just the pick-me-up if you needed it. There was just a plot in the last two episodes that I didn't like and for that reason, the rating on this drama missed that 10 mark. Still, overall read more a great storyline!

ACTING/CAST - This is my first time seeing Show Luo and right off the bat, he earned a spot in my favourites for this role. He was phenomenal. The differences in his characterizations of Da Lung and Xue Hai actually made me wonder for a moment if it really was the same actor that was in the drama earlier. His transformation from lovable dork to gorgeous hunk was just that good. As for Rainie Yang, it was refreshing to see her in this bad girl role and really, she did a commendable job with it! She usually has the angel look but as Bao Zhu, that was no longer the case. The secondary characters were also as good with a notable performance from Lee Wei as Xuezhang and Wu Maggie although I didn't like her character.

MUSIC - Both Rainie and Show sang songs for the drama which somehow made it even better to watch. They suited the atmosphere perfectly and really, it's a wonderful OST.

REWATCH VALUE - I give it an 8 because for me, I loved the first 10 or so episodes. The last two didn't do much for me though I did like the ending. The storyline was good and I did like seeing Show Luo's acting so there's a very good chance I will end up watching it again.

OVERALL - 9/10
Not a bad drama! Definitely recommended if you want something light and warm :)

Alright, contrary to the other reviews, I loved this drama. I had a blast seeing Rainie play not only something different than her usual role up until this point, but the stark opposite of it. She's domineering, moody, and yet still deep. The romance is sweet and the comedy of it all was incredibly enjoyable. This was my first time seeing Luo Show and he was wonderful.

It's a fun romantic series read more with the usual gender roles reversed.

Shy, unpopular male lead and charming beauty. Pretty much the exact same premise.

The male lead hides his true identity in both series. Hi My Sweetheart has a revenge theme. The male lead in Fall in Love With Me wants to help the small company of the female lead succeed.

    The first few eps where awesome (right until like 8th ep) ... after that things began to turn a bit boring; lots of flashbacks, turns slow, etc etc. Other than that, worth watching :)

    I liked it but it throws in weird side stories that do nothing for the plot like a lot of Taiwan dramas. The cliche memory loss and the kidnapping.

    I found this drama to be really cute with a bit of quirkiness. Especially the two leads at the start...adorable. Rainie is so pretty.

    Started watching it and I've reached episode 3. It's actually not so bad; I really like how light-hearted it is and seeing Rainie in a devil character is very refreshing after watching Devil Beside You.
    The one thing I keep thinking while watching is I wish Bao Chu would meet Ah Mon. I'd love to see that cross over xD
