A story revolving around two students, Huai Nan and Luo Zhi, who immediately hit it off when they meet in university, but a message from an ex complicates things. Furthermore, Huai Nan discovers that Luo Zhi has been harboring a secret crush on him since their younger days. Luo Zhi has been caught in a one-sided love with Huai Nan for over ten years as she acts in a monodrama of her own creation. Her feelings towards Huai Nan are complicated, fueled by an honest admiration for his excellence but also tainted with jealousy and hatred. While following Sheng Huai Nan, Luo Zhi is also admitted to the best university. Her one-sided love finally gets a new chapter when the two start getting close to each other, but reality hits hard and they undergo many trials. Will they finally be together? Who took Luo Zhi's diary? Which one will prevail - love or family? (Source: MyDramaList) ~~ Adapted from the web novel "Unrequited Love" (暗戀·橘生淮南) by Ba Yue Chang An (八月長安). Edit Translation

Story- I have read the book this drama is based on and its really amazing. Its not just about another girl crushing on a boy. The story is so much deeper than that. The story is about a girl who has harboured feelings for a boy for over ten years but you can't really blame him. He literally had no idea she even existed untill they meet in university. He is not a jerk but neither he is a saint. She's not any damsel in distress or someone you can mess with. They both have complicated personality, especially the girl. When they finally meet and starts interacting, the guy actually falls for her soon. This makes us question that if she had the courage to profess her love in all these years, maybe there wouldn't be as much heartache for the lead couple. The drama has variated from the original story at places and added several extra scenes but main plot of the stroy is still intact. This unrequited love story is not like the ones we have seen before where the guy is a jerk and girl keeps chasing him. This is a more mature story and take on one sided love that has lasted for more than a decade, not because of rejection but because of fate and stubbornness. Its about a girl who have selfishly harboured an unrequited love for a boy but never blamed anyone for it. She knew what she was doing. It shows unrequited love of not only the main couple but also other characters around them who in someway or the other are in love/relationship with people that does not return back their feelings as they expect. I hope people would not judge the drama based on the name and synopsis and give it a chance.

Acting/Cast- The cast of this drama is relatively new, so I've not seen any of them before. However, each one of them left a remarkable mark on my memory. As a fan of the book, I admit I fantasized the leads to be more good looking as per the description of the characters. I was also disappointed with the cast before watching the drama, but boy did they change my perception. Both main actors were very good at their parts, played with such subtle chemistry and understanding and I totally bought their version of Luo Zhi and Sheng Huainan. Special mention to the guy who played Zheng Mingrui. He was so amazing at his role that I really felt for his character. Soo good. All other actors pretty much played their part really well.

Music- LOVED the music of this drama. Both the beginning and ending theme was amazing, especially the end song was really cute and captured the essence of youth so well.

Re-watch value- Definately gonna watch this drama again.

Overall- I might be biased because i already read the book few years ago but this drama is worth the shot and i hope more people watch it.

I finished the drama recently and I must say, I was not disappointed
I will try not to spoil the drama but if you have read the novel, it follows quite closely :-)
I read the novel, and was really hyped when i heard that it finally got picked up into a drama. But if you haven’t read the novel, don’t worry, it’s something refreshing and heartwarming to watch (of course with a little twists and turns along the way). Characters are really well-developed. No overly clingy characters here like most dramas, side characters play a major part of the story too!! Towards the ending, I felt like it was really rushed? But nonetheless, i enjoyed the drama overall:)
The female lead’s acting really caught my attention. This is her first main role she has, and she pulled it off super well, her emotions she showed amazed me.
The other actors are amazing as well, although some of them are first-timers, they pulled it off smoothly!!
not much to say here but it isn’t overplayed like in most dramas and quite soothing too
Rewatch Value
If I ever need a drama to rewatch, I can see myself coming back to watch it. (That’s how the good the drama is)
One of the best dramas i’ve watched in awhile :) Give it a try!!
