well at first I have to say that this was totally not what I expected. I still enjoyed watching this drama. the title fits in many aspects, but it is not really about two people pretending to be a couple to hook up others.
I would say this drama is about love between family and friends, and also tragic history between the characters. the story is quite sad, although it starts out read morefun. the ending was a little quick for me. on the one hand I didn't even take that much interest anymore, but on the other hand some things were dissolved too fast. there was so much tension between the characters and it was suddenly gone, like someone let the air out of a balloon. and it's one of those stories that makes you feel life is unfair to the good people.
the main actors were really great though!all the character's feelings were portrayed very well. I could sympathize with them and understand their grief and why they were doing things. the music was good and will be stuck in my head for quite some time.
I wouldn't rewatch it, because I hardly rewatch any drama. there are so many new right?!;) and it's too sad for me, I don't like sad.-_- also there seemed to be a problem with the rest of the episodes being uploaded and subbed. even though I understand Chinese and don't need subs it was hard for me to find the last 3 episodes.
so basically I am recommending this to people who like to watch a melodrama, that's not as sad and dramatic as others. if you like to sympathize with the 'bad' people Shi Yinan did a great job. and if you like Dylan Kuo, you should watch it. he is very different from the drama I saw him in before.
do not watch this if you are looking for a funny romantic comedy with the typical couple 'first hate then turn to love'-relationship. it's not!
I really don't think the Synopsis justifies this drama.
It's in my eyes completely different and a Lot deeper then to Light-hearted, fluffy love type story the Synopsis says about. However that doesn't mean you shouldn't watch it.
Finally I could finish this drama, after it have been on my 'on hold' list for like a year or something.
This drama is not the typical cheesy rom-com taiwan drama, it's actually really interesting. It's a mix of romcom, melodrama and family? :)
