Story: Yes, this was indeed a very different kind of pretty man XD I started watching this without knowing what it was about.. I thought it was something similar to Meteor Shower since it was apparently the third installment.. but boy was I surprised! I never expected it to go into the direction of magical powers. These group of guys all gain some special powers due to an accident and surprise surprise.. the reason for all these powers are somehow linked to the leading lady. Hmm.. but what's with the ending..... O.O Do I sniff a sequel??

Acting/Cast: I didn't know most of the actors in this and only watched it for Emma.. love Gui Gui she's too adorable! But this drama really introduced me to a bunch of cuties XD Alen.. Leon.. Edwin.. I hope to see them in more dramas soon! It's great to see Zhang Han again but I really don't see what the fascination with this guy is.. why is he like everywhere?

Music: I'm not too sure what the songs are because the version I watched had the opening and ending cut off.. so I can't really comment much here.

Rewatch Value: I probably won't watch this again as re-watching will lack all the suspense and anticipation that it had as I already know the story now.

Overall: This was a fun ride. It was actually I think my first drama with magical powers that isn't a historial/fantasy drama so it was very interesting for me. I was quite impressed with the CGI effects, unlike in those fantasy dramas XD If you want to watch a pretty boy drama but sick of all those high school/college love dramas then totally give this a go! The romance and drama is still there but with the addition of a bit of excitement.. which let's be honest... most of those other dramas lack.

If you're looking for a side show / something to watch when you have nothing to watch that day this drama is an option. This drama is a mix of sci-fantasy and romance. It was not what I was expecting but since I liked several of the actors I watched till the end.

The story's a bit odd. It's a romance drama but they added some sort of sci-fantasy in it so it isn't - just - a romance drama. It's as if they didn't want to repeat the whole - rich guy and average girl fight to stay together thing - so they threw in a few special powers. They did tie it all together though. They tried their best to make sense of it all so it isn't as if they randomly gained super powers so I congratulate them on that. There was also too much going on. I understand that they want a background story for each character but we needed to be reminded of what the main goal of the story was. The main story was overshadowed by the side stories. I wanted to learn more about how the super powers were affecting the characters daily lives instead of the main couple's struggle (then again it was a romance drama...). The story needed revising and the writers needed to find a way to organize everything.

About the acting, the relationships were confusing. If I were to draw a chart of how everyone's relationships worked it would be like a weird star-ish shape thingy. Due to the messy relationships the acting was sub-par. Each person did well on their own part but when they were to act like they were in love with another character... it was hard to believe due to the odd star-ish figure.
Supporting characters' relationships were even more convincing than the main character's relationship. The main male lead and the female lead seemed so distant. He was better matched with the second female lead... In fact, everyone was better off with their second love option which was confusing because we are told that their one true love was their first pairing... Their acting of their super powers were more convincing than their love lines...

The music was not memorable they did set the mood though. In fact, there was so much background music all the time I don't recall silence. It was always climactic music. It felt like everything they were doing was important. Then again they had powers so everything they were doing - was - important compared to anything an average person would be doing.

Rewatch value is @ 5/10 cause I don't think I'd rewatch it. I honestly liked the second love options for each person much more than the main ones. Even if their relationship was plausible - they were lacking in romantic scenes, you'd probably get more intimacy between the supporting roles. The story was also predictable. The ending wasn't really an ending. I've watched other dramas of the cast and I'd say this wasn't their best work. For a Sci-fantasy romance drama, this one failed.
