So what to say about Hi My Sweetheart! Other than the fact that it spend 3 years whole years in my Too Watch list. I was being super hesitant too watch it, and I can say that even though I did not give it a 10 or a 9 that it was totally worth my time. Even though the story was not new, it was still original enough. The actors if you read more take out the three playing the "belles" where actually really believable and cute. The Only reason why this drama did not get a 10 from me his probably because I felt that the drama could have easily been wrap up in 9 episode or 10 if they really wanted to go with the even number. Because truly their misunderstanding was so simple that he did not have to been spread over like that. But other than that this drama is a great pick me up if you are down. Because you are probably going to laugh form episode 1 to the last . They just seriously kill you with their cuteness.

The story itself is so unique. You always see drama's that involve romance and comedy, there are even a ton of gender benders. But none quite like Hi My Sweetheart. Xue Hai held the award for biggest dork and completed the look with a mushroom head haircut, thick rimmed glasses and an under bite. Bao Zhu was shunned by everyone and didn't care what they thought until "Lin Da Lang" came to read more school.

One of the best things is that until about episode 5 the gender roles are reversed. Instead of the "innocent girl" falling for the "bad boy," You have an innocent boy falling for the girl everyone hates.

The casters did an amazing job with casting Show Luo as the main lead, seeing as he's a giant piece of eye candy. Rainie, who played an innocent girl in "Devil Beside You" did an amazing job with an opposite role. Together the two of them will have you wanting to cry at sad moments and yell at the screen as if they can hear you.

This is my all time favorite drama. I've re-watched several times and will continue to re-watch it. At first I had given up at episode three but curiosity took over and I started watching it again. At first you may seem disappointed, watching a dork when you want to watch a hunk. But it's all worth it.

You won't regret watching this.

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

    I liked the cast, particularly Teresa Daley, and Choclate Lai. But I think it's more down to looks, than any particular acting ability.

    I remember me watching this drama many times when I was younger (I'm Chinese actually) without subs, but I didn't understand very well so I decided to rewatch it again with it XD

      Different edits. Taiwan/Chinese dramas always do that annoying crap. The 13 episodes is longer but combines more episode into one.

    So many emotional feels for this series. A freaking roller coaster ride to be honest, but the acting was extremely well done. One of the best love stories in my book. Very honest, and for once, the female lead is badass (<3 Rainie). Show Luo's Xue Hai / Lin Da Lang is definitely on my top five list of the greatest performances I've ever watched. So in love with this drama.

    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.
