_-I understand why a lot of people don't like parts of this drama. There is a lot of back and forth between the leads, but I also have seen this in a lot of other dramas and I feel like it's a little understandable because like Xin Chen loved him and he hurt her deeply, so i feel like its kinda understandable? There's something towards the end that felt like it came out of left field and was totally unnecessary, I wished the end was better, but i don't think its a deal breaker. I think the dialogue could have been written better. A lot of people complain about the pacing but I personally feel that the pacing was good with 30 episode, it just contributed to the overall emotion of the drama.
+Memories of Love was beautiful, emotional, and carried so many forms of love in such a condensed space. When i finished I felted inspired yet exhausted. There is something about this show i fell in love with that i can't quite put my finger on. Memories of Love moves from the past to the present and does a good job at showing how the leads have changed from youth to adulthood. The back and forth between past and present, I feel, was a good way to slowly reveal the back stories of our characters. I also love the coloring and the lighting that is in Memories of Love, the overall aesthetic of the show just fits the story and adds to the emotions so well.
+My absolute favorite part of this drama was the relationship between Xin Chen and her uncle Xin Kai Yu. It was beautiful and heartfelt and heartbreaking. In the parts of the story that fell a little flat i kept watching for Xin Kai Yu. It was heartbreaking and well portrayed. It made you reflect on life and the choices we make with the time we have. That song, 500 Miles, will forever be in my heart (but like I haven't been able to track down the version used in this, so if anyone finds holla at me please and thank).
