Right so this is my first time writing a review so bear with me.

First of all,the thing that ruined this show for me the most is that they give you no indication whatsoever how much time passes between certain moments. Which is really annoying bc Meng Yan falls in love with Mo Bai really quickly and makes her seem like a really dumb person (to me at least), but actually, I have no idea how long they've known each other.
Tbh I really disliked Meng Yan's character anyway. She fell in love with Mo Bai in like 2 seconds and still kept going after him after being dumbed by him TWO times? Seriously who does that. Especially when you have a great guy who already admitting to liking you anyway. Realistically, no one would continue to go after a guy after being dumbed, especially the way Mo Bai treated her. If I were her I would have thought he had bi-polar disorder of something with the way he was acting.

I liked Mo Bai's character all things considered. Every action he took made sense to me in terms of him being a robot so I couldn't really fault his personality for that, since tbh he doesn't have any for most of the show. I didn't really understand the ending though. He was finally self-aware so idk why he took that choice.

Also, again because of the timeline issue, the whole plot of Yu Fei getting cancer really annoyed me. Maybe because I've had cancer myself, but it really bothered me how they didn't show anything at all. I'm guessing she's been having chemotherapy for months but it seemed like she's only had her diagnosis for a week, and when she died she still looked exacly the same and wasn't even bald? I mean I don't mind that they added that to her character but at least make it believable and realistic then.

Also the ending was really abrupt and strange. I've been watching asian drama's for quite a while so I'm used to most drama's having a really bad ending, but it annoys me all the same. You can't even call it an open ending, it's like the writer suddenly died and there's no one to write the ending so they just left it or something. You don't know what happened to CEO Lu, you don't know what happened to Mo Bai, you don't know whats going to happen to Hai Ling and Ke Ming. Literally nothing.

Anyways, wouldn't recommend watching it. The storyline was bad, the continuation of time didn't make sense, the special effects were aweful, everything. The only good thing was the actors.

The Good, The Bad, The Not-so-Ugly

Well this was definitely a mixed bag. I can't say it's the best thing I've watched this year, but it was slightly better than the average contemporary C-drama with its reconstitution of many standard tropes. Unlike many series of late, I actually watched the entire drama. Of course, caveat, I am already biased toward shows that examine the relationship of technology and people. Still, let me tell you what I thought. What did I...

LIKE?
*some actually meaningful content exploring what it means to be alive through hospital case scenarios as well as AI vs. human tension
*showing the challenges of parent & adult child relationships from both sides rather than black and white, right & wrong
*the FL's natural altruism and kindness that wasn't ridiculously extreme, just thoughtful; her earnestness that wasn't ridiculous and naive--she was actually clever sometimes
*the lack of a malicious 2FL intent on ill will for the FL

DISLIKE?
*polarized characterization of corporation(s) seeking profit without morals or care for individuals
*underlying encouragement of stalker-ish tendencies....when someone says they don't like you, pursue them relentlessly in the name of love & just ignore what they say
*glorification of excessive drinking with FL not remembering previous night and frequently over-drinking
*trite and overly relevant moralizing hospital cases (man unable to choose, brother living for brother)
*and yes, this is completely about me, but the AI expert's desktop computer screen mis-spelled UPLOAD as UPLAOD. It drove me a bit nutty to see it repeatedly.

FIND NOT SO UGLY?
*the coldness of ML was moderated by genuine, broader expressions as his character developed
*the FL's blunt insistence on not taking advantage of the 2ML's obvious affection and multiple offerings
*the scenery with travel to rural villages, a glacier, the sea, a resort and even just the city skyline
*the relationships of colleagues at the hospital (depth and not just caricaturized extremes)
