I was quite lost at first because I didn't know where to start. I ended up starting by Like Love the series and then the two movies. I think I made the right choice!! I'm really sad that they won't be making the last movie. I think it stands out from other bl dramas because of the relationship's dynamics. Even though this wasn't perfect, it gave me all the feels and I lost count of how many times I screamed while watching this series. The kisses are SO good. They surely have chemistry. The hot scenes... Jesus Christ. They were very explicit but at the same time I didn't think they were "ugly"?? I dont know how to explain but I don't usually like when there are sex scenes as explicit as the ones in here but the main couple had so much chemistry that I didn't mind at all. I thought they were very beautiful. I'm sorry but even though Ziyan was grumpy as hell he truly deserved to be happy. I like me some bad boys who are in fact good. I don't want to spoil anything but his development throughout the movies/series made me emotional. Some people might have not noticed it but I think his love for MaiDing really turned him into a different man. Ahhh what a crush.
One of the best parts was the soundtrack. I haven't watched many chinese shows but I have noticed that the ballads are stunning. I'll download all of them!
I will probably rewatch this many many many times. And now let's go follow the actors on social media. haha
