Now that I have officially finished this drama, I can say that this season was the main course compared to the first season which was basically an appetizer or the background of how these two mains fall in love. But...that isn't really fair to say since it wasn't like an official season break; literally season 2 picked up where season 1 left off as if there was no season change.
We left off in season one with the aftermath of (english name) Mike and Li Yan Shu sharing a drunk kiss. Mike seems to be extremely happy that it happened, while Karen has mixed feelings. Maybe it is because she thinks Mike will be mad at her or maybe it is because she is not used to having close relationships with others. Regardless of that, this season picks up with Gu Jin Yu realizing the truth of why Li Yan Shu left all those years ago and deciding for the 5th (some large amount) time that he is going to pursue her against this grandmother's wishes. Mike on the other hand has finally accepted his feelings for Li Yan Shu and decided to confess in front of both Li Yan Shu and his younger brother Gu Jin Yu that he is also going to pursue her. Unfortunately, his adoptive grandmother/mother has decided that in order to get rid of Li Yan Shu and "show Gu Jin Yu that she is a gold digger," she wants to "introduce" her to someone else. Which brings us to her brilliant idea to convince Mike to start a fake relationship with her. Mike says no, but still pursues her because he is actually in love with her. Throughout this drama, this plan backfires in so many ways especially Mike's relationship with the Gu family and his adoptive grandmother.
We also FINALLY get into more detail about Mike's past that he cannot remember. It was honestly EVERYTHING seeing Mike and Li Yan Shu's teamwork. Like they work so well together. I also especially loved all the secret looks Mike would give Li Yan Shu when she was hard at work trying to connect the dots based on his fragmented memories. I think this is what made the drama so much better than the first for me. As I said in my first review, Mike's smile is EVERYTHING. We only got a few smiles in season one, so season two was a treat when he would smile and laugh and act goofy around her. Of course his germaphobia (that was connected with his childhood trauma) would get in the way most of the time and we got glimpses of old grumpy Mike who came off snooty. But I did enjoy their relationship. She brought a bubbly piece to it so regardless if something in his life was going bad, she knew how to cheer him up. There were actually a few extremely emotional scenes in this drama where Mike cried, and I felt how much love they had for one another on how much they supported each other. Chemistry was through the roof!!
The reason I couldn't give this drama above a 7, though, was because there was a lot of filler in the beginning, it wasn't until the last group of episodes where everything hit the fan. PLUS, for a couple that loves one another so much and is there to support one another, when a little complication arises, they both turn into their old selves - Mike, a cold businessman who shuns Yan Shu, and Li Yan Shu, a sarcastic liar who loves to push everyone away.
But for what it is worth, the last episode ended the way it needed to and perfectly tied up this entire drama. Like seriously, the beginning of the last ep almost had me in tears. Also it was interesting seeing the villains of season 1 some how become misunderstood characters and they form these strong relationships with the main characters. You know how much I disliked her step sister, but once they formed a bond with one another, it was cute and unbreakable, almost like they had been friends for years.

Alors alors je suis mitigée par rapport à ce drama.

Je pense que si j'ai pu le finir c'est uniquement grâce à Tan Song Yun. Elle apporte la dose de peps et de légèreté à cette série. Elle est absolument adorable, vous avez vu Mr Mermaid ou love 020, vous allez la retrouver autant souriante que dans ces dramas mais avec un côté plus badass ????

Si elle ne faisait pas partie du cast, j'aurais abandonné à la moitié de la série. Pour moi, elle carry ce drama ????
Pourtant les autres acteurs sont plutôt bons en dehors Zhang Daniel qui m’a vraiment déçu. Jiang Chao m’a fait peur pendant la majorité de la saison 1, on le retrouve dans le rôle du directeur distant et froid soit c’est logique qu’il ne soit pas la plus chaleureuse personne du drama mais de mon point de vue, on aurait pu plus rapidement apercevoir sa part chaleureuse qu’on rencontre dans la saison deux. Dans la première, on peut compter sur les doigts de la main, les sourires qu’il a esquissé alors que dans la deuxième, il nous prouve clairement qu’il en est capable et qu’en plus de cela il est réellement adorable lorsqu’il affiche autre chose que son air froid. Je ne sais pas pourquoi ils l’ont rendu si inexpressif pendant la saison 1, enfin bon grâce à la saison 2, je garde vraiment un bon souvenir de cet acteur.

Ensuite pour la trame générale. C'est assez basique, le directeur (qui a un passé sombre) et une fille qui a eu une vie relativement merdique finissent par tomber amoureux. C’est cute, on aime toujours <3

Mais j’en attendais plus de l’évolution entre le protagoniste. J’ai vraiment ressenti une cassure personnellement :
Un épisode, ils semblent ne pas s’apprécier plus que cela et l’épisode d’après c’est le grand amour ! WTF. J’aurais souhaité avoir une transition plus logique, qu’on les voit de rapprocher, devenir intime, gêné l’un envers l’autre…Enfin bon les 2 protagonistes sont tout de même adorable ensemble, cela permet de faire passer la pilule ????

La trame est bien mais on y trouve beaucoup de clichés, la diabolique méchante sœur, la jalouse qui cherche à faire de l’ombre à l’héroïne, la sorcière qui n’a absolument pas de moral selon moi et sans oublier la mère immature qui fait que la vie de sa fille soit compliquée.

Mais il y’a eu de joli rebondissement qui aurait pu être mieux amené. Par exemple l’histoire de Karen Li, j’ai trouvé que c’était rafraîchissant mais cela aurait pu être mieux amené. Je ne sais pas des petits clins d’œil qui puissent nous faire nous dire : « Ah, mais c’est pour cela »

Ce qui m'a le plus décu c'est la fin , on donne des excuse à tous le monde pour tout ce qu'ils ont fait. D'accord le pardon c'est bien mais je trouve que qu'en certain personnage agisse autant mal. On peut pas juste passer au dessus de tout ce qu'ils ont fait. On devrait voir du remord et en dehors la mère, pour moi finalement tout le monde était amis avec tout le monde . Alors qu'il y a eut de véritable actes immondes.
