This is a love story featuring Wei Qing, a high-ranking executive with a severe case of OCD that prevents him from interacting with women. An incident from his youth left a lasting impact on him, driving his search for a "princess" who can help him overcome his condition. One day, he meets Zhou Shi, an eighteen-year-old art student, and to his surprise, he feels completely at ease around her. They strike up an agreement, leading to a blossoming romance.

Firstly I would like to start by saying I have officially watched 13 episodes with subs, but have skimmed all episode without subs. Secondly I would like to add that I have come from watching Korean dramas, and recently branched out to Thai and Chinese shows in the last 6 months.

What I have come to notice when watching C-dramas is the lack of women being represented as strong or accomplished. They always seem to be so senseless, and honestly I can't handle watching female leads portrayed as stupid. This is just my personal experience though. However I can gladly say that the female lead is strong, sticks to her values, has clear goals, but at the same time is relatable and likeable. She is not easily manipulated allowing the audience to experience the great chemistry with the male lead, while also bringing light hearted moments. They feed off each other and it makes great viewing. They deliver the angst, the drama and the romance. The chemistry between the two main leads is incredible.

Not only do the leads have a great story and chemistry, but the supporting actors also deliver quality side stories and pairings. Most of the time when I watch a drama I either like the side story with the supporting actors, or the main leads story. With About Is Love, I'm equally invested in all 3 pairings and their individual stories. The chemistry between all the actors is stunning, and you can't not get invested in the story.

Though the overall theme of the show a CEO with OCD has been told many times, I think that the cast is what is really making this drama stand out and not be considered cliche. I have watched a few episodes of Want To See You Smile with the same themes of the male lead having OCD and unable to have physical contact with anyone, but I could never get into it. The chemistry between the actors wasn't there for me. The relationship of all the characters and the chemistry is really what makes "About is Love" great for me.

I watched this drama not expecting anything because as far as my experience modern cdramas turned underwhelming in its later part. BUT i watched this and as i progress i never realized i was already at its last 5 episodes. Its light fun drama that makes you smile. Although Wei Qing was such a jerk in the first parts, he make it up in the later parts. He supports and understands Zhou Shi although his ways are kind of cunning, he wished nothing but the best for Zhou Shi. Also the second fave couple and character is the Genius jiejie she's not like those smart boring genius type. She cares for her friends without losing that genius image. So all in all i very love this drama! :)

Definitely will watch this again again. I hope more modern cdramas are this great and fun. ♥
