I gave it a really high score because I just enjoyed watching this drama. I saw many negative reviews about this drama so I'm pretty sure that they won't agree with me. The story is about two people in love who were separated by their own circumstances for 7 years. This simple story already attracted me but what made me love the story more was the flashback scenes during their college days read more which were very crucial in creating this kind of drama.

It was my first time to watch the main leads in a project and their acting was just fine . I also wasn't able to read the novel in which this drama was based from so I'm not quite sure if the readers' idea of Yichen and Mosheng was played faithfully by Wallace and Tiffany. More than the main leads, Xiao Xiao (Mi Lu) and Yuan Feng (Yang Le)'s story stole the show for me. They were so entertaining to watch that I wish they even had more scenes because they were so great!

Just like "Boss & Me", the music did not disappoint and can easily make you feel good. My favorite was the opening song by Zhang Jie with the same title as the drama. I'm already downloading the OST as of writing this review haha!

I'm not a rewatcher so I didn't give a high score for that though I'd be fine in rewatching some of the scenes that made me happy and feel good. Overall, the drama had its fair share of angst (also annoying) and romantic moments but still managed to be a relaxing watch which made me love it. I haven't watched so many good C-dramas yet but I consider this as one of the good ones so far so you may try this out if you're craving for some romantic/nostalgic-themed drama to watch.

Let me just start by saying that this is one of the few dramas that I have watched without missing a scene. The acting was phenominaly done. So real. And I'm not just talking about the leads. All the characters were so real, not overdone like other dramas. So much chemistry between the main couple. Such a beautiful love story.. I'm so envious... *sigh*.
The only flaw was how much they butchered read more the English language... wow it was so bad. But I found it kind of entertaining still, I guess they tried their best.
I also really hated Mosheng's wardrobe... I don't think I'm the only one.
Overall I definitely recommend this drama, you will not regret it.

Both of the are my sun shine and the actors are pretty much the same. One of them is just the mini series.

YAMS is the movie version which despite being quite condensed and sometimes sloppily edited was quite memorable in its own right. I preferred Yang Mi's Mo Sheng and aesthetically on the basest level HXM wins over CW as Yi Chen. Watch after or before the drama... you won't regret it (I watched the film first personally)

    I watched this drama because I had just finished Princess Weiyoung and needed something that Tiffany Tang was in since she's one of my favorite actresses.
    I watched the drama first then read the novel it was based on and then watched the movie.
    definitely novel >>>>>drama >>movie (although I liked all three!!!!)

    the only thing I didn't like about this drama was the second couple/side characters. They aren't in the book and they were kind of boring in the drama. Some people may find this drama a bit slow, especially at the beginning, but that is typical of many cdramas. But the main couple is very sweet and they are totally worth your time and their story is quite nice. I like how the drama added lots of extra cute scenes and stuff for the main couple that wasn't in the novel, so that was a really nice move by the writers.

    the movie version is actually not as bad as people say, and I liked it because it didn't have those unnecessary second couple/side characters parts

    but the novel is hands down the best out of the three. the novel is probably the #1 romance novel in most book polls in China too :D

    also, the opening and ending theme songs for this drama are both really good!! :D

    is it just me, or did anyone else found he song "Two roads diverged in the woods" creepy. I loved the music but the lyrics made no sense. They did not fit the scene or storyline. They just didn't feel like a song telling something. The lines in the lyrics did not complement each other.

      well i don't know how you cannot relate this song.
      The lyrics are like this-
      Two roads diverge in the yellow wood- Means the road she chose leaving yichen and the one which leads her to yichen
      I go back and rechoose If I could- Means if she could've gotten a chance she would've changed her decision(yichen's path)
      But here i lay so sick and so confuse- she is referring to the state(PAIN and SAD) in which she is!

    When I read the comments, I was expecting a sappy romance with cliche characters. It surprised me. They were mature and honest, which is a refreshing expectation. I won't say it was full of angst, as they handled the misunderstandings quite well. I wasn't expecting much and I don't really go for long dramas, but I'm happy I picked this one. I'd say its 75% good and 25% draggy, Hence I rate it a 7.5.

    Although i had to skip most of the parts to the main leads' part I was still able to grasp the story! If I only i had time to watch the whole episode i wouldve enjoyed it so muc. The chemistry between leads is amazing❤ Tiffany is my new fav chinese actress i saw her first in princess weyoung and shes so pretty and cute. I wasnt attracted to wallace chu before but when i saw him in general and I i fell in love with him immediately which led me to watch this drama.

    Starts off slow...but gets interesting as they show the flashbacks
    I swear the flashbacks of the younger actors are so cute they should make an entire prequel drama based on it

    I am obsessed with his dress shirts. I don't know if it's a better quality shirt or if wallace just wears it better, but he looks impeccable in them. The guys' shirts do not look as neat and wrinkle free.

    I look like a hot mess, where can I get shirts like that?
    Or should I take lessons on how to wear clothes like wallace?

    if its like love o2o. boss&me. i pass. i watched 14 ep to see wtf is drama about. lots of unnecesry scenes. boring. i ll completely pass china dramas. they were like shojo anime. boring. but one exception with chinese drama is "best lover" at ep 14 its going so so. not bad.

    I've tried watching this show 3 times now on Netflix, each time I'd quit after the first episode, the third try I got to episode 2 and hated it. This morning, I was on Netflix again and after watching Tiffany's other shows last night (Perfect Couple and The Princess Wei Young), I decided to give it another go. But this version on Netflix was different! It only had 4 episodes! I was so confused until I realized that it was a directors cut and was SUPER condensed. I started to watch it and found myself falling in love in the first episode. It skipped all of the boring BS in the begining! Around halfway through episode 2 though, I found myself actually wanting to see what was cut out. So I started at episode 14 of the original cut and LO AND BEHOLD, thats when the real magic begins. I couldn't stop and FELL IN LOVE WITH THE SHOW, THE COUPLE, AND THEIR LOVE.

    My reccomendation for those who can't start this show or dropped it? Watch the directors cut till episode 2, the first 20 minutes, then go to the normal cut episode 14. It worked for me!

    For anyone who doesn't have Netflix, you can search for the 33 episode of You Are My Sunshine on Dramanice.to, episode 33 (they also have the directors cut as episodes 33, 34, 35, and 36) then switch to episode 14.

    Happy watching! :)

      Definitely try it out. I dropped this so many times but since people kept recommending it on the forums, I kept coming back. Its so slow in the beginning and honestly, some stuff is skip worthy in the long version still but the 4 episode version actually leaves out too much so you have to switch half way through. However now that I've seen it all, I'm in love, probably gonna rewatch this in a few weeks. This was the combo that worked for me, let me know how you like it :)

      I've watched the whole series and I loved watching this series. The Chemi is on Fire. For those who are dropping just because it is little slow and draggy in the beginning, do the as recommended by Jenny.
