    I love T-Dramas, and I loved this drama, but I will admit by the last few episodes, it really began to drag, and was wishing for its end. Keep in mind however, this is not to say I found it boring or terrible, but there was a lot of unnecessary scenes that I felt took away from a lot of the potential that could've been.

    This is not my first Taiwanese drama, but it is the only one I've finished so far, so I can't yet compare it to any others yet. It's hard for me to be detailed without spoiling some things, so I'll avoid doing so. Let me go through some of the general pro's and cons.

    Some pro's I liked about this drama

    OMG...the writers totally ruined this drama with the extension. I was ranking this around an 8 until episode 13ish. I love melodramas, but occasionally I like fluffy romance dramas. I chose this drama because I thought it would be a lovely romance. I was so disappointed. It starts with a little bickering between the leads that quickly changes to sweet slow romance. Then left turn to stupid. Then there is all the inconsequential side stories. I also hate that at the end they used the narrator voice instead of using the last "extended" episodes to actually develop the characters and story. Anyway, I can't go into it with out spoilers.

    The actors are good. George as Zhou Zhen and Annie as Xiao Shu are good actors

    Only two more episodes to go...I'm still enjoying it. I feel like the last few were a bit slow, but I'm excited to see the conclusion.
  • hvnlyslayerangel Oct 9, 2013
    This started out great and now it's dragging. BIG TIME!

    And the thing with the ex, I just feel like it's unnecessary drama that's just filler to make it to 20 episodes. This has already been extended from 15 to 20 eps, but they really should've wrapped it all up in the 15, because now it's turning to crap.

    I may have to put this on hold and just watch the last episode.

    episode 16th looks extremely bad , ex-gf is back,and fuck shes blind(it doesnt take to be a genius to know that blindness will end up being the reason why she rly broke up with him (sacrifice and shiet like that )),so it will be time for a little pity love, im not a big fan of this whole idea

      I think that the ex-girlfriend coming back blind mayeb a good thing bcuz her sacrifice is like the same as what Zhou Zhen did, thinking both has the best for their loved one but it actually isn't. I think this makes Zhou Zhen realize that his choice was not good and he can get together with Xiao Shu again:)
    • SunshineAni Oct 1, 2013
      I totally agree with you!! annie chen character should find another love (a hotter looking guy, like aaron yan) and leave zz with his ex... I'm so upset with zz!!
  • TopSecret Sep 15, 2013
    I'm reading the comments and everyone's negative about the extension. Am I the only one who don't mind them extending it to 20 eps?

    I thought 15 was a good number but at 20...I can't think of anything else that could go on except his ex trying to come back in the picture also.

    I noticed everyone is disappointed about it being extended to 20 episodes and I just wanted to say something about it. When I first added this drama to the database I had initially heard the proposed number of episodes was 20, but someone later changed it to 15. So no, I don't think it was actually extended.

  • CheerfulSoul Sep 2, 2013
    Okay screw this; why did they have to extend it to 20 episodes? This means it will fall in dragging (more than it's already is) and Taiwanese are so freaking professional in dragging their dramas.

  • holldoll32 Sep 2, 2013
    Lame :/ I was already starting to find it boring at ep 9, now they're adding more eps? Will probably skip some inbetween stuff now which i really dont like to do, but i have alot of other dramas to watch, sorry drama ^^
