    The following review is an EVERYTHING Honest Review, sarcasm up ahead!

    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

    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 read more

  • 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.

    The drama wasn't that bad. Just feel that it shouldn't have dragged so long. The ending was also not that bad, still acceptable for me. Chris Wu played his character well. He was actually the main reason I watched this drama. But I don't think in real life there is such a guy like Terry! May be more like in a fantasy.

    It's on hold. But I'm afraid to watch it cuz it's too long. And takes up a lot of my time. If I get addicted...
  • CrawlingInMySkin Aug 30, 2013
    Going to force myself today to finish watching the remaining two episodes. I follow this drama from the very beginning, but I just can't get myself to watch the last two episodes, because I know how it will end and I've lost almost all interest in this drama even though it started out as a great one :( .

    I feel like Chris Wu did the impossible and made an unwatchable drama not only watchable but enjoyable as well. It`s kind of scary how great of an actor he is.

    I'm gonna give this a try, I feel like watching a Taiwanese Drama. Unless someone can recommend another one that's already completed. :)

    while i wasnt happy about the ending i dont think it was so much of a cliff hanger as you had to be paying attention. they basically went over every moment of the Da Hua/Terry relationship in flash backs. showing that they were still thinking about each other. Guan Jun on the other hand wasnt a huge part of it and what we did see was pretty much big brother territory, with his parts in the finally just basically wrapping up his character. Dua Hau and Terry both said they would "meet again" if it was their fate. Da hua looked absolutely over the moon to see him on the plane.so to me it seems to indicate that she did in fact chose terry. i also postulate that there is a possiblilty that whatever mandarin phrase is being translated as "if it's our fate,we'll meet again" might have a different connotaion to native speakers and might suggest a more inimate/romantic meeting.

      I agree. They probably would have had to spend a ton of money on production costs to re-do the wedding scene. Since they already did it once over, the viewers can just imagine what the grand wedding between Terry and Da Hua would be like. I wish though that they did do something like this time her giving him a ring. Like proposing to him since she finally decided she wanted Terry.

      I'd been a Terry supporter throughout the show so I was really glad.

    • azndrama Jun 19, 2013
      My understanding is that since her last text (that she was afraid to send to Terry) asked that if she came back in a year could she be his bride again, that yeah, her feelings had changed toward romantic for Terry. That and the flashback scenes on the plane and what you said about both of them depending on fate which brought them together again.

    I liked the sho and the ending but it felt somewhat incomplete

    Oops was I supposed to put that as a spoiler?
  • dpcirizarry123 Jun 4, 2013
    You call that an ending? I am glad I did not waste all 21+ hours on this! I skipped from episode 10 to 19-21 & am glad I did. They better have a special because Da Hua better make up her damn mind & pick one or the other. This is just not fair to all the fans that spend their time rooting for either one of the guys. It seems that at the end the writers did not want or could not make up their minds about which faction to disappoint (p*** off), Terry's or Guan Jun's. But isn't that the reason we all watch this kind of dramas? We know someone is going to be disappointed no matter what. I loved the actors, the story had potential but once again, it seems that the writers do not know what to do & bring such a great story to a deserving end. Please, ease my mind & finally let me know who really won Da Hua's heart. I hate ambiguous endings.

      Da Hua's heart is with Terry - If you see the last txt msg. she was going to send/afraid to send to him, it asked him if she returned in a year she could be his bride again.

      Thanks. I just watched episode 1 and wasn't overly impressed, so knowing what happens just saved me a lot of time and energy.

    The beginning and the middle was awesome but right now I don't really get WHAT they're trying to do really ... :S

      I agree completely; after about episode 15 it sort of feels like the writers lost total control ;A;

      I think the writers changed around mid way and that is why things changed the way they did.

    they have to have a movie or 2nd season.. thts was some cliff hanger.. literally 0_o
    • azndrama Jun 19, 2013
      I get the impression based on the last txt msg. she was going to send Terry that she became aware of her own feelings, but didn't know how to tell him. "When I return in a year, can I be your bride again?" seems pretty clear to me imo. :P

    After the half way point this drama became dull city with no plot or character development. Ive only continued watching because Chris Wu keeps drawing me in with his phenomenal acting...
