Cast & Credits
I've been a fan of Gu Man adaptations but what really pushed me to watch this was Yang Mi. Fresh off Eternal Love I've been looking for something to sate my appetite for both Yang Mi and Mark Chao and this didn't disappoint. HXM was also a bonus (as I did find him quite dreamy in Cruel Romance...which is quite strange for a self proclaimed feminist, he was quite overpowering in CR tbh but I couldn't resist) This review is purely for the film as I've not actually seen the drama
In terms of the story, this is quite fateful to the source (I'm reliably informed) so I have no complaints there. Kept me glued despite the frequent choppy editing (whoever they hired to edit this need to seriously up their skills as despite beautiful cinematography and framework, the way the scene's were cut and transitioned felt jarring) Despite that little gripe this second-chance -at-love story really resonated and made me ache for both the main characters. I really hope we get more Gu Man adaptations as I'm absolutely in love with her stories.
Acting was great...Yang Mi can really deliver, I love that she's beautiful AND can act, no wonder she's so in demand. I'm looking forward to seeing more from her. You can feel her character's emotions and her chemistry with HXM was spot on. HXM surprised me by his performance, man can emote well. Gone was the sometimes wooden acting from CR. I love him even more now.
Music was beautiful, I loved the main song (the one in the hospital and shower scene) anyone please put me out of my misery as I really want to know the name of this song. If I had to say anything negative, it was that the upload I watched had a weird carnival music playing in the background? It was disconcerting...
I would definitely want to watch this again, not for a while but yes worth a watch now and will be again I'm sure.
Yang mi at her bestYang Mi truly never disappoints she becomes each role. For a true fan you will live the life of Mrs. He, feel her love pain, love and regret. i wont forget to mention the insecurities that comes with seconds chances. Lmao i felt embarrassed as she tried to spice things up. Sadness, as they both reflect on what they've lost. True love and forgiveness. Acceptance and understanding. You really have to weigh what's important in life. Good storyline. I love Angelbaby, i thought there would have been more to her role initially. However she didn't disappoint either.
