Yan Dong Ming used to be on the top of his career, a well-established music producer that's known for his love songs. However, the public has now completely lost interest in him. To extend his music dream, he ends up in Yun Hai Village under strange circumstances, a land isolated from the city and there, he met the "Planting Goddess" Tian Li Yun.
Yan Dong Ming, a neat freak and a guy that has "city cancer" – obsessed with city living can't get used to the natural habitat of Yun Hai Village. However, under the guidance of Li Yun, not only he fell in love with this self-sufficient cute village, he also fell in love with the strong and determined Li Yun.
When faced with the crisis of eradication of the village, will Dong Min choose to stand by Li Yun or will he return to the city and regain his long-lost music dream? How will Plant Goddess Li Yun defend her village and her beloved man?
Cast & Credits
With that being said about the plot, I really appreciated the entire cast in this drama. Liu Yi Hao and Annie Chen had good chemistry. The Yun Hai villagers all made really realistic characters I cared about - the village chief, the police officer, and the Mi family wife are stand outs. I really really enjoyed Xie Ying Xuen's acting (who doesn't) and REALLY wish there was more - but honestly, she was probably too busy filming other shows/movies.
The music, though, was really the best part about the series. And honestly what made me watch it. They had their theme songs by Waa Wei and Kowen, an OST by Crispy, and original songs for Nana Lee, Jake Hsu, and Liu Yi Hao. I'm still waiting for an official release of Nana Lee and Jake Hsu's duet. pls.
All in all, I did enjoy watching this drama fully. And even though some plot lines were more dramatic than others, I still enjoyed (most of) them because I cared about the characters. It's a hopeful sign that Taiwanese dramas are improving in quality, from the writing to the directing to the acting.
But maybe best of all, as a Liu Yi Hao fan, I can finally say he can act in dramas. LOL
