Cast & Credits
One word that I can use to describe this drama is "FRUSTRATING". Yep, this drama is so frustrating to watch. At first it started out just fine and the leads were actually pretty cute. I thought that this would turn out to be quite interesting but then at the end it became so draggy and so frustrating. I was so frustrated at Xie Cheng since he is so indecisive. Like, MAN UP! Who the hell do you really love?! Stop meeting Jia Ren! And also stop giving hopes to Xian Hua! And then out of the sudden he would just decide and tell Huan Ying that he loves her. Like what?! All of the sudden? I just really didn't feel his love for her. Kudos to Huan Ying tho, she really is willing to sacrifice just for Xie Cheng. That's love! Sometimes I feel like Xie Cheng doesn't deserve Huan Ying at all.
Oh yeah and I really hated the female antagonist. I wanted to pull her hair so bad and drag her off the drama. Well I guess she succeeded in becoming the female antagonist then.
Even though there's a lot of bad points in this drama, there's also some good points. I actually find some of the parts funny and entertaining. I was also so touched by Xie Cheng's mom. She was so kind to Huan Ying. I actually loved her relationship with her. I basically loved the family love of the characters. I actually liked the leads together but they could've worked harder.
Overall, this drama has a lot of potential. More acting improvements needed on Zhou Mi. Although I actually find him very cute. He has the same vibe as Zhang Han.
To sum this up this drama has a lot of bad acting, no character development between the leads, the male lead is so not loyal and indecisive. But then there's also many fun parts in this drama. I especially loved Lee Da Hae's outfits in this drama.
If you're finding a rom-com that would frustrate the heck out of you then I highly recommend this drama.
