Good God, this series has been my life for the past week or so. My laptop was practically attached to my hip so I wouldn't have to stop watching the episodes. I'm not normally a huge fan of dramas since they're usually cliched or predictable, but I really LOVED this one. To the point that I stayed up until 5 in the morning because I could not stop.

This drama was a read more wonderful mix of different elements from family drama to romance to corporate scheming. The cast and character dynamics were just fantastic- I adored Jingfan and Xie Chuang's relationship! That being said, the romance was still my favorite part. Yang Mi and Hawick Lau are flawless; my otp in real life and in the show! Hawick's portrayal of a flippant playboy was great and his chemistry with Yang Mi's character had me flailing in happiness because they were just so darn cute.

I laughed. I cried. I fangirled. I very nearly threw my laptop across the room in anger. And then I repeat the cycle as I rewatch the series for the third (or is it fourth?) time. Seriously, I cannot gush enough about this drama and I highly, HIGHLY recommend!

Okay..! I finished this drama and I can say that I liked it :)

How I got to this drama? I liked Yang Mi in the previous dramas she acted but they were all historical dramas and so I wanted to give it a try and see how she's doing in a modern drama.

The story of this drama is good at the beginning and made me want to non-stop watch it, read more but after the story goes on it got a bit boring.

The acting in this drama is alright, not very outstanding but also not bad. The feelings that were shown always felt real but didn't really touched my heart. Everyone except Lau Hawick and Wan Qings father were OK in thier acting. I really liked Lau Hawicks and Wan Qings father's acting very much because they made me feel frustrated when they were and also happy when they were happy. There were very much feelings in thier acting.

I think this cast was well choosen because the characters that were in matched each other but also maybe because the main characters already acted as a couple in other dramas. As a couple in this drama they harmonized very good and I always loved to see the two of them together.

The development of each of the characters were sometimes dissappoinng also sometimes good but what really surprised me was that in the whole drama I didn't really hated one of them. Each character had thier own personallity and many of them had a moment where I really disliked them but as much as I disliked one of them the next moment I started to symphatize with them again.

I didn't really noticed the music, the only thing I know is that the musik that was played always matched when there were happy moments or sad moments.

What really annoyed me??
It wasn't something about the story of the drama it was the beginning and the end of every episode. At the beginning of every episode there is a review sometimes the reviews are just 30 sec long but somethimes there where 10min long!(WTH) And also the end of EVERY episode they didn't left me with a cliffhanger but I had the feeling that they just cut the scene carelessly when the episode should end.

To tell the truh I wouldn't rewatch the drama, not because the drama is not good but because at the end it was really hard to keep on watching it and I rarely ever watch a drame twice.

Maybe I judged the drama to hard but I think it's better to have a bad impression and get surprised than to have to high expectation and get dissappointed.
I hope this review helped you and I hope that you choose to watch this drama because it is worth it!!:D

PS:Pls don't pay attention to my grammar mistakes because I'm not english(;
PPS: & also the total number of episodes is not 46 , it's 51!:)

    Except on VIKI, where can you watch this drama?. The servers on VIKI are too busy sometimes...it's hard to watch it!

    The synopsis is misleading. There's no revenge at all. The plot line was unstable. It first seemed to head towards the revenge/romance genre then went towards the subplot of the father's affair which became central, then headed towards the family drama drama, then it became kind of a melodrama with the usual dose of crazy obsessive love then something else again in the end. Wow! At one point everybody started acting completely out of character...I don't know...I found the drama a bit strange...It's a happy ending but not a great story. Also the romance was a bit awkward. In the beginning especially the girl.

    If anyone wants to watch it with english sub, it's on dramacool.com. juz search Clear midsummers night, viki videos are all unavailable, fan channels' videos are very easy to get deleted.

    Does the acting get any better? I'm at ep 18 and I have to say, no one seems to know how to act and the script is such a mess. I have no idea what the writer is trying to convey in any of the scenes. Does this get any better or should I just drop it now and save myself the pain?

    Anyone know where I can watch this w/ Eng subs and the episodes are NOT cut?...
    Viki has cut about 5 minutes of every episode....sometimes, very crucial segments are missing!

      That is generally not viki's fault since it's a fan channel and the videos are linked to youtube. I'm guessing the youtube videos are cut for some reason. I have no idea why and I admit it sucks. In hindsight I wish the project didn't get started until after the higher quality, complete videos were released on youtube. :(

      Unfortunately, the only place completed with subs seems to be Viki.

      But the videos there are from youtube, I don't think you'll see adds like on the 'regular' channels/videos.

      You're welcome :) Only licensed channels over at Viki have constant ads playing during the episodes. Fan channels which get the videos from youtube don't have them. Enjoy!

    It was a great drama and I actually rewatched it a couple of times because of the acting between Hawick and Yang Mi c: Does anyone know if Hawick's voice was dubbed? I can't tell.

    I'm watching this drama right now and it's awesome! *o* I'm completely hooked! But I'm confused about one thing, does this drama have 46 episodes or 51? Because here it says 46 buy on wiki.com it says 51.....

      Haha. Thanks. Say That You Love Me greatly reminded me of ISWAK too. I really enjoyed watching it. Viki says Knock Knock Loving You is already subbed?

      aw yes I mean, the knock knock lovng u has eng sub but can u fix it because sometimes the eng sub is not accurate it may sometimes too late or early than the speaker speaks.

      I see. That sounds like something a segmenter (who also understands Chinese) would be needed in order to fix it. I don't know how to segment, thus, can't help with timing.
