This Drama describes the emotions and life experiences of the people who were born in the 80's. The final year of the 20th century, it throws to the hearts among teenage boys and girls with an unforgettable shinning flare. Chen Xun, Zhao Ye and Qiao Ran. Three young boys spend their seemingly endless youth time as much as they can, they are fallen out of favour, fight with Teacher Big Horse altogether, crazily playing video games on the street. However, being influenced by the special rhythm under the era of youth, the boy whoever is more ignorant, can still notice that the bottom of his heart is yearning for first love. Qiao Ran starts looking at the girl Fang Hui, the one who he thinks that she helps the teacher deal with him and other kids. Zhao Ye tries to get close with the girl Jia Mo, who likes basketball and Rukawa Kaede (The Character from Slam Drunk). Meanwhile, It seems like there is a not readily noticeable feeling between Chen Xun and Fang Hui. And a moment that ought to have lasted forever has come and gone before I knew...The drama is adapted from the novel of the same title written by Jiu Ye Hui.
Cast & Credits
This is a rather real slice of life. Even though I didn't grow up in that environment, the stories I've heard matched with the show. The actors are real in their concerns and every day routine. The characters interact so well and really bring out that school time innocence. Their issues are actually so real and relatable that the episodes fly by while reality punches you in the face. Their story made me want to cherish high school, or what was left of it at the time, all the more. Because they were so eager to grow up when all they had to do was be kids.
From what I know, these were relatively young/new actors and actresses. They're acting wasn't over the top or exaggerated. They worked well together. I really liked them (anyway).
Music was pretty decent. I don't remember much of it but I'm listening to the OST as I write and it brings back some pulled heartstrings so definitely memorable when prompted.
When I'm feeling a little nostalgic I would definitely turn to this drama. But I usually don't rewatch dramas...so if I would...
