From the network that brought you Fated to Love You( Trust me they mention Ethan in this drama)comes King Flower.
Meet Jin Da Hua the ugliest girl in Tawain because of a mole(?) and the inability to close her mouth. Meet Terry a rich nice guy with a beautiful fiance named Liang Yan. When Terry wants to go mountain climbing Liang Yan wants to join with this unrealistic expectation that if she stumbles he would be able to catch her purely through their love and not you know physical strength. So when she "unexpectedly" falls and Terry is unable to catch her she is sent to the hospital with injuries that should recover in a
year. Terry looks for a subsitute for Liang Yan and somehow stumbles on Jin Da Hua who is able to look like her and be ugly at the same time. Terry offers her 2 million dollars if she gets plastic surgery to look like someone else which she needs for her father's debt who conicidently is 2 million. Wow this show has a lot of plot conviences in the first few episodes. This must be a record. But sadly Liang Lan dies because her siutation was worst than what the Doctor told Terry.
But Terry is not the only hearthrob that falls for Jin Da Hua hehe spoiler alert. Her childhood friend Guan Jun does as well.
A Taiwanese drama with no bitchy drama as the two second female leads do NOTHING to sabotage her relationship with Terry or Guan Jun. One even helps her!Yet despite the lack of second female leads this show still has the annoying subplots. A show that people claim is hard to tell who she'll end up with, but if you pay closely attention to the drama it drops subtle hints who she will chose in the end.
Yes Jin Da Hua must chose between a sweet, charismatic, rich guy who only falls for her because she looks pretty and a sweet, selfless friend who realizes he loves her AFTER she gets plastic surgery. So the concept of the show is that a NICE guy will fall for you if you're PRETTY. Because she had a good heart before the surgery and honestly with a little makeup would have looked decent. This is the message of the show. That is really f#@!%d up.

Normally I know before even going in Taiwanese dramas are filled with both a lot of heart and a lot of crazy so I know what to expect. And given the synopsis / outline of this drama you can tell it's going to be a doozy lol trying to convince yourself the plot line is plausible. I am always a stickler for not fast forwarding through a drama cause I like to study all the scenes and come up with my own conclusions but even I gave up on the other characters and just watched the scenes after episode 10 of the lead couple cause I had lost all interest in everyone else. On the ending and for this drama with the ending you gotta base
a lot of it on fate and where it takes and leads you so if you aren't satisfied with vague sort of endings this probably would not be something you wanna sit through.

For the most part Wu Chris carries this drama and kinda is the only reason you'd put yourself through this given the follow up of the cast is just sort of bland plot filler. I can't say as the viewer there are any memorable scenes for me and the music is just sort of there in the background. I did find it hard to forgive the overly blatant product placement in like every episode and thought if they spent more time on the plot line and less time on the flashbacks and advertising of brands in scenes this might* not have failed so bad in my book. I think my quote for this drama is "Who the heck cause about your facial scrubber!"
I give this drama a 4 and wouldn't rewatch any of it. Well maybe Wu Chris smiling scenes but thats about it.

I kept feeling like I was watching Smiling Pasta while watch this drama. They sort of have a similar plot.
A girl pretending to be the fiance of a rich when she come from a poor family and she is in love with someone else.
