I'm watching this but can't find english subs after about episode 21. Luckily, I've seen the (somewhat) related movies so I can guess at the dialogue. My question is why wasn't this more popular? The director was the same as In Time with You and the soundtrack is awesome.
Loved the show but felt that the ending was a bit too abrupt and didn't resolve issues well enough :-( The show could totally do with an extension to introduce more plots (like they did in the movie) and better resolutions. Now, I'll have to go read the novel that this is based on! Haha
Well, it's only been awhile since I finished watching and it's already testing my memory! Haha. Gu Yuan and Gu Li ended up together. Tang Wanru ended up with Xu Wei (Lin Xiao's first boyfriend) while Wei Hai just disappeared and wasn't mentioned anymore. Xicheng got into jail after assaulting a man while saving Nanxiang. Nanxiang ended up with Ah Wen. Jianxi finally made a clean break with Lin Quan at the last episode. Chongguang recovered from his illness and got together with Lin Xiao. Gong Ming didn't end up with anyone, if I didn't recall wrongly.
The ending plot twist is that Gu Li had a brother she never knew existed, and it turned out to be Ah Wen. And the drama just ended there.
No problem! I'm glad you are going to watch this :) I really liked this drama and breezed through it even though there doesn't seem to be 'jump-out' in the plot. My only complaint is not having a clearer ending but I guess I can always hope for a sequel :)
Loving the show so far despite the differences in plot from the movie but just can't help but feel that the male leads are not handsome enough for the storyline to make sense. Can't figure why Niall and Jian Xi are chased/liked by/appeal to so many girls.
Was surprised to see Chen Xue Dong as Ah Wen instead of Zhou Chong Guang (the role he had in the movie). Loved him as Zhou Chong Guang in the movie and I don't get why he doesn't get the same role here!
I just started watching the drama and I can already tell that movies are waaaay better. It's a pity they couldn't make a drama like the movie. Even though drama is not the best I will keep on watching it because I'm curious about the story and I'm not very good at chinese yet to be able to read the books.
I bet you will be amazed by this movie :) Just make sure to pay attention all the time, don't watch it if you are sleepy :) And good luck with subbing I will be waiting for more episodes :) btw where are you from?
I actually personally really disliked the movies. I found that the first one had very little plot or substance, and the second one tried to make up for it by having too much. While the drama may not have the same budget as the movies, I think that most of the actors are on par, if not better than, their movie counterparts. That's not to say I wouldn't recommend the movies, I think they're perfect as fluff. With the drama however, I've seen much more character development and friendship than the movie, which is something I really look for.
I watched the first movie and then the drama series , I plan to pick up the movies next. I actually found the drama very different in flavor from the movies but I am really enjoying BOTH renditions very very much. I was worried the change in cast might be hard to take, but the transition was pretty smooth so far. Just going nuts to find subs aftr ep 27. MAN its at the best part too.... heheheh
