The series is based on the Japanese shojo manga "Zettai Kareshi" by Watase Yu.
Manga Synopsis - Riiko (in the drama Guan Xiao Fei) is a girl unlucky in love. One day a strange-looking salesman gives her a business card for a website that sells "love figures" (androids designed for love-making). On the spur of the moment and without really understanding the implications, Riiko orders her perfectly made man for a 3-day free trial, actually not realizing that after the trial she either has to pay an awfully big amount of money or return the robot. It so happens, that she actually starts liking the robot for real, naming him Night.
She has a best friend, who is secretly in love with her...
So here start the strange adventures of these 2 people...

I've seen most of the actors in other taiwanese dramas and so I ventured to watch this one mostly for Jiro. The only thing that was wrong with this version is Koo Hye Sun's acting. I loved her in Boys Before Flowers and liked her but this character or maybe her acting was just unbearable. her over the top expressions were a killer. I wasn't expecting much but I;ve seen the Japanese Version. I have also seen Jiro's acting and he was doing a good job in this. I gave up for the second time. This not even Jiro or the rest of the actors could save for me. I didn't even mind the dubbing but her acting was just bad.

It took me a while to decide to watch this drama and based on the reviews I thought it was going to be a lot better then what it was.

The upside to it is it's a good story and it gives you a lot of warm fuzzy feelings while watching it and you fall in love with the characters, especially Night.

The downside is if you're looking for a happy ending I would suggest looking elsewhere. I personally could of seen the ending go many different ways, but it left me feeling sad and empty and slightly disappointed more than anything.

The other downside is Hye Sun's voice is dubbed over and it was REALLY annoying at first but you got used to it towards the end.

In the end it's a good drama but I wouldn't say it's a must see unless you're a fan of Jiro Wang like myself. He was the only reason I watched this and continued it till the end.
