Cast & Credits
Annoying Secondary CharactersLet me go straight to the points. For me, this is an annoying drama. Despite the fact that Deng Lun is one of my favorite actors, the story, dialogues and acting (apart from Deng Lun’s) are definitely lacking. Most of the characters are super annoying, making me want to throw the pillows at the TV most of the time. The story seems to go around and around. The logic of the story and characters is outrageous and unfathomable. On top of that, the dubbing is super bad with lips not synching. Everything is a cliche and predictable.
Having being so critical of this drama, to be fair, I want to praise its music which is pretty good and I have truly enjoyed it.
If you have better dramas to watch, don't waste time on this one unless you want to watch Deng Lun, or you like Republic era dramas.
I give the rating 6 for the part of the story because I feel for the part of the story, this drama has many holes, after I watched the last episode I was surprised and asked if Father Haitang was killed after he did makeup for Yue Xuan's mother, how could it be after accidental Yuexuan seeing his stepfather shijizhou kill his mother and hiding in the closet could see shijizhou fighting withHaitang's Father and then shijizhou killing him ... a hole big enough for this drama at the end, besides that makes me very disappointed with the storyline of this drama is a lot of bad character from this drama that is free without overwriting any problems (not having to die but not even given a sentence or go to prison) after a barrage of evil deeds that have been done for example: yueming, miaolan, xingqiao (including criteria of a very evil person and many times committed a very bad crime) chu-chu who did not receive any punishment for their actions was even released and vice versa with the stepson Shijizhou "Shidiwen" so innocent, innocent, sorry, and always beaten by his father who instead died at the end of the story,I even cried very sadly when I saw Shidiwen die at the end of the drama, he who was so kind and always beaten instead had to go away as a result of his father's actions ... really unfair to him, so with Uncle Jin, who has worked for years with the Lang family (one of the good character too) who even died at the end of the drama, I think about how people see the drama's storyline going forward ... doing good does not produce good fruit instead Good people are always deluded and despised The last must accept the bad, a ending to a drama that really disappoints me actually ... but I finish it too just for DENGLUN, and I am very enamored with his acting skills that never disappoint me in whatever drama he plays ...
for point acting I give a rating of 10 because I feel all casts have good acting skills and of course especially DENGLUN,his acting when serious, joking, sad, angry ... everything looks very natural ... he's really a talented actor.
liyitong has a pretty good acting in my opinion too, but for acting crying I feel like ZhangyaZhuo as langmohua has better acting skills, so certainly with senior artists carmen lee and alex fong who certainly have no doubt about their acting, but for my entire cast feel quite satisfied with their acting skills
I quite like the soundtrack for this drama series, especially those sung by DENGLUN and AHLAN entitled waiting for love "deng ai", I really like their beautiful voice collaboration
I give point 6 for rewatched value because maybe I will not repeat the second time this drama because the end of the story that I think is half satisfied (satisfied because the two main characters get a good ending and not satisfied because many evil characters are even so free and do not get any punishment for their actions which is very outrageous)
SO OVERALL I GIVE 7.5 FOR THIS DRAMA...
I hope my review does not offend anyone...THANKYOU
