Cast & Credits
However I just wanted to applaud the two things in this drama that were outstanding: 1. Patrick Lee and 2. Patrick Lee.
I wasn't fan of Patrick Lee ( and the jury is still out on whether I am now) - I came for Huang Tender's small role first and then Chien Jolin second (oh and a cameo by another favourite of mine BUT I won't mention the name because it was a nice surprise I'd like to keep for you if you decide to watch this BUT again this isn't a recommendation!) - but Patrick Lee was fantastic in this drama. I've seen him here and there in bit parts but his portrayal was amazing. The characterization was average as were the other roles and pretty much all of the actors I normally love seemed to be phoning in their performances - going through the motions and making me feel nothing! However Patrick added a certain sincerity in his pining, yearning, heartache, heart break that made him so endearing peppered with moments where he reverted to his old acting ways of hamming up buffoonish and silly scenes/dialogues. But I can't deny that in those moments where his performance tugged tightly at my heartstrings I was smitten and 100% enthralled by him.
So if you're the curious type who has a fascination on how an 'once average' actor can turn around his art through one performance; level up and make you all of sudden interested in a must miss drama then you might want to give this a go. Just watch everything else on your watch list first because like I said in the beginning, this is not a recommendation.
