I waited for this drama to be subbed for about half a year and it was worth it. The plot is a little similar to Autumn's Concerto and Autumn's Concerto fans would certainly enjoy, if not as much as AC. Loving Never Forgetting is not about two people in love who have a baby. It's about two strangers who have a one-night stand and the man doesn't even remember the woman. Imagine read more saving a little boy in an accident and finding out he's your son, even though you can't even recognize the mother! This drama follows these two people as they fall in love and truly become a real family. The plot has some ridiculous, rather-makjang elements but overall it's a heart-warming story.

Jerry Yan is one of the most handsome Taiwanese actors and I have watched him in a few dramas. His character here is quite different from the immature-but-funny-and-sweet brats he generally plays. Here, he's a cold, ruthless businessman who does not believe in love or marriage. I liked him here and he definitely stole the show! Wu Tong is really clumsy and at times, really stupid. She's the perfect damsel-in-distress, something that ticked me off a bit. I'm kind of used to strong drama female leads now and characters like her make me want to roll my eyes at them every minute. If I got a penny for every time she fell down, I would be a millionaire. But the woman is plain stubborn. She never got rid of those heels (and how did she afford them anyway since she barely managed to earn her living). But anyways her character wasn't entirely hate-worthy. I mean, she was the sweet, innocent, perfect lead after all. Tong Tong was alright. Nothing compared to Xaio Le obviously (Xaio Le was too classic). Supporting characters were fine. My personal favorite was the special assistant.

The OST was good enough. This was my third Chinese drama (I think) and although these dramas are longer in terms of episodes, they're enjoyable. I could rewatch Jerry Yan's scenes with his child and Wu Tong but the rest I would definitely skip in the second round (if there is one). It's a good drama overall and when it comes down to it, definitely worth the watch.

I decided to watch this because I heard that it was similar to Autumn’s Concerto. However, I do not think it’s alike at all aside from the very basic premise that it’s about a secretly born child and the father tries to get custody of the child. The plot was really crazy and exaggerated. There were lots of confusing parts that just didn’t make sense, but that’s how most dramas of this read more kind are- overly done. There’s the usual disapproving mother, vindictive second lead, and comedic relief. To be very honest, I grew to dislike many of the supporting characters, and although they ended up trying to redeem themselves, it just felt very unrealistic- even for drama standards.

The saving grace of this drama is definitely the OTP. The two main leads, Jerry Yan and Tong Li Ya, had superb chemistry. They both had outstanding performances in this drama, and I was captivated by their scenes together. Usually in other dramas, the OTP is most important to me; in dramas like this one, however, the child is just as important. Unfortunately, the child actor was very average. He was cute, yes, but nothing about his performance stood at all. His dubbing severely detracted from his performance, and his acting was mediocre. The supporting actors were alright. Nothing particular. Zhong Mou’s(Jerry Yan) assistant was funny, and of course, Jerry Yan himself was just phenomenal. His acting was on point and his crying scenes were just so emotional provoking. I personally didn’t like Wu Tong’s (TongLiYa) character, although her acting was fantastic. She is a strong mother, but she is also such a pushover.

Some of the music didn’t fit with the scenes, especially the english songs played at the club scenes made me cringe. Jerry Yan’s ending song, and Jin Sha’s song, however, were amazing. I loved it.

For me, re-watch value isn’t that high. I would re-watch some scenes between the OTP, but I don’t think I would watch the whole drama again. In the end, I do recommend this drama if you're in the mood for a heavy melodrama. Even with all the ridiculous plots, it still managed to make me tear up in some scenes. If you also care about an amazing OTP, like me, then I recommend watching just for the OTP. 7.5/8.5

In both series the men find out after a few years that they have a child, the family doesn't like the mother and try to steal the baby. Both show the parents having other partners, both take a feminist path.

Basically the same plot : rich guy/poor girl. The main character in this both dramas is a single mother trying to do anything for his child.

    I deserve a treat for finishing this. The story sucked, the dubbing sucked, the girl with the mushroom haircut and the ugly boots sucked. Yeah but she was marginally better than the pathetic female lead. Villain dude is good. Endured it for Jerry Yan.

      Okay, but you did say "Yan Jerry's character was more disgusting" and I freely disagree. Let's just agree to disagree and peace out, lol.

      lol ok I tend to be less forgiving for lead like him I hate the thought that she fall for him after everything
      I think of it as more of a surrender than really loving him

      I don't care about the second lead because he's a second lead the story doesn't revolve around him

    As usual, this drama had a rushed ending. Loved the way, Jerry portrayed the cold and cool businessman role in the beginning. It was an okay drama for me with predictable story line. Had doubts watching this drama at first after reading the comments but overall was glad that I watched it.

    I have watched this drama few times and each time the scenes of Jerry and Tong made me shed tears and very touching. They indeed have a very good chemistry. I would definitely watch their drama again if they are able to collaborate one more time.

    Did anyone notice the allusions to Meteor Garden, the T-drama, especially last two episodes?
    Not just the "Meteor Garden" story but also the famous scene of Jerry Yan chasing the bus that Shan Cai, oops I mean Wu Tong was riding? .... a few other allusions also. XD

    Are they the same writer or director for both shows?

    Very glad I gave this a chance .... Good story .... I like the relationships ....
    and ...it has what I like most: lots of angst and jealousy.

    What I did not like: the lead actress' acting, especially in the beginning .... I hate her portrayal of Wu Tong as the stereotypical poor, dumb, and extremely clumsy female that only knows to cry, weep and simper.
    BUT, Wu Tong's character showed strength and bravery and hints she had intelligence early on, ... SO, it made me continue, until she finally stopped stumbling over her own feet and showed she had brains!!! ....
    Unfortunately, the simpering and crying to gain sympathy continued until the end :((
