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

Although LNF follows the story of two adults loving after having a child, OMGB follows the story of the child and has similarities with both parents wanting custody. Both gave me similar vibes though, even if OMGB is much less romantic and much more slice-of-life melodrama-y (child had childhood alzheimers).

    I found this drama quite hard to get through. Glad i completed it but i won't be watching it again. I found Jerry quite stiff throughout even when he was 'comfortable' with his surroundings. Wu Tong was also pretty limp and dumb. Loved TongTong.

    I don't know why I started this (maybe coz I had nothing to watch) even when I was not interested after reading comments.This drama seems fast so it is not boring. I have seen main male lead in Down with love he was so handsome and acted so so well in that drama but he doesn't seem to be trying here. Female lead improved a lot with no. of episodes. Finished Episode 20.
    This drama is not a must watch but if you want to go ahead it's not too bad either.

    Here's the good news all the main leads had amazing chemistry, the actors put all their emotions out there and it was palpable. The bad news is that the only person i could root for was maybe Tong Tong (the kid). Li Zhoung Mou was such an asshole but Wu Tong was even worse cos she just forgave him for all the shitty stuff he did.

    Basically If watching a woman get emotionally and physically (unintentional but still) abused is your thing, then this is the show for you. If not I suggest you give this a hard pass.

    This is the best Chinese drama I've ever watched. The story is very good, the actors are decent, and I really have zero complaints. If you are remotely interested in this JUST GO WATCH IT.

    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.
