This story is pretty good, I understand why they made it into a drama!
Pros: Acting, really good use of English, cast chemistry, great premise, and no evil character to hate!
Cons: Character development, the plot does lots of fast forwarding, and plenty of holes needed to be filled, some supporting actors are meh
I have been meaning to watch this movie because I was watching the drama and its 30 episodes read more long so I needed to find out where this ship was going. I like the idea of a woman getting to prioritize her career and love life in the order that is important to her and not sacrifice either.
This movie attempts to show the conflict between Du Lala’s rising career and her budding romance and they do a fairly decent job. However, everything and I mean everything is rushed; plot advancement, character development, and story line are sped up using flash forwards and flash backs :( .
I would recommend this movie for people who like strong female leads and storybook romances, but I think the drama explores how the two main leads come together more thoroughly. Lastly although the story is supposed to be about Du Lala I found myself drawn to the other characters and wanted more of them.
If you plan to watch this watch the first 25 minutes and the last 10 before you commit to these 2 hours.
