I really liked the story at the beginning, showing the determination that the two leads would do anything for each other, but then I kind of drop the drama because the same things kept repeating again again and again? it kind of tiring

What was my experience of this drama? Incredible!!! Yes! Incredibly ridiculous, annoying and unbelievable! So many incidents occurred where I thought..."for real?" "seriously?" "you got to be kidding!" and "HELL NO!”

This drama had the makings of a really good watch. The cast was gorgeous, the acting was really good and the chemistry between the two leads was the best I have seen in a while. The leads were adorable, and you read more really believed their love story.

BUT….even with all that going for it this drama could not be saved. The writer seemed like a teenager going through anx and the producers must have been desperate to even produce such rubbish. Yes I am being vitriolic because I am so disappointed that the potential was not realized.

This drama is ‘cliche heaven’ because every cliche in drama land that was created and died came here. The Queen of 'Noble Idiots' was the leading female character, and though I loved her to bits I could not stand her overly kind, self-sacrificing and forgiving nature, especially given that she really wasn’t a push over, she was just too nice.

The balance between obstacles and triumphs which the lead couple go through was way out of balance in the negative therefore you got tired of seeing them go through problem after problem with no decent solution.

Too farcical and nonsensical.

This drama started dragging early and you knew this when you saw the same mess repeating itself early on probably around episode 10. I kept thinking how many times can you play the same trick on the same people and they still not catch on they are being used and abused and used and abused again!!!!

The chickens started coming home to roost around episode 37, however even that was a disappointment because those chickens came home but the eggs never cracked until the final episode 41!!! Any revelations was only partial and just a tease so it dragged to the final episode!! I could not believe it! So here is my advice…..DON’T WASTE YOUR TIME AND ENERGY ON THIS DRAMA or else you will be knocked out by twin brothers FRUSTRATION AND VEXATION. As you can see I still have not blown off enough steam from my anger and frustration as I am writing this review to help this cause.

How come I kept watching and how did I make it through to the end? Through sheer disbelief that I was watching such stupidness and pride would not allow me to accept that the drama was not going to improve. WHY? Because while the storyline was like a used up hag, with some creativity and a bit of ingenuity they could have pulled it off, after all it had a great cast, so I was hopeful.

Any way ALL IS WELL because its well ENDED! OVER AND DONE! HALLELUJAH!! Not to be repeated this watch BUT I will watch the lead couple again in anything. They were particularly adoring and endearing to me in this drama, so if you like good chemistry, beautiful cast and can sit through the rubbish story and plot then you can enjoy this.

So in summary my ratings are: Story 5, Acting 9, Music 5, Re-watch 0. My overall rating is 6 but I am giving an extra point to the actors so an overall 7.

    This drama was an agony to watch for many different reasons: excessive use of cliches, too many obstacles for the endearing main couple, too many frustrating situations that could have been easily resolved...etc. etc. I wanted to quit so many times but only because I really really liked the main couple I struggled on, and still struggling at episode 32...8 more crappy episodes to go!

    This drama seems to be the adaptation of a TDrama, I think it is Kaew Lorm Petch.

    This is the kind of show you watch when your either bored or have no other show to watch and even then turn your brain completely off. I am still watching it because the leads are so adorably cute and as someone mentioned the leads acting is impeccable. So if u don't mind the cliches, the cute leads, and having to turn off your brain while watching you will love this drama.

    Started it on a whim, it's a big roller coaster, I don't think there's a single drama cliche they missed; wait, I haven't seen the drunk piggy-back ride, so they did miss one.

    This is such a makjang drama... yet somehow I don't care. I've found that I can't stand makjang Korean dramas but I'm totally okay with makjang Chinese/Taiwanese dramas XDD I don't get it, but I like this drama... it's basically a guilty pleasure. It's trash, and everyone can admit that, but its still fun to watch at the same time. If you're weird like me and enjoy trashy Chinese/Taiwanese dramas or just weird nonsensical dramas, I recommend. If you can't stand any sort of makjang or dramas filled to the brim with cliches, then stay very very very far away.
