Deng Lun is a Gem

I must say, I have enjoyed watching this drama. Not for its great plot nor fancy actors, but for something closer – home, what it takes to make a place we can call home. It takes a lot of love and sacrifices. It takes courage and patience.

Deng Lun’s acting is simply 10 out of 10; he is natural, funny and lovable. The character he plays as Shao Peng Chen, grows from an arrogant spoiled brat to a considerate and compassionate leader. His wits, kindness and empathy help him win many hearts, including the love of his life.

Another notable acting is by Li Xin Yi who plays the wily Hao Mei Li. She grows from someone who always undercuts her friends and co-workers to a reliable trusted friend whom everyone loves. Li Xin Yi pins the character to the spot. I really love watching her, though in the beginning I must admit I did roll my eyes whenever she appeared and talked.

There are no real bad characters from start to finish in this drama. The whole drama basically portrays a very real issue faced by many young people living in big cities in China, in particular, Shanghai, where property prices are beyond the reach of many families. As it is a tradition that most Chinese families demand ownership of properties, it has become a constant stress for the growing number of young people working in the cities. The pressure from both sides of the families for a young married couple to own a property is simply unimaginable.

Shao Peng Chen in this drama comes up with a solution in solving the pressing housing issue. It follows a popular affordable rent-to-own model, which has been trending in western countries with the decline of home ownership. His conviction and determination in achieving his goals play out as he picks up the pieces when he fails, and forever optimistic and hopeful, never letting his failures overshadow his judgement.

This drama brings love, friendship, family, trust, compassion, and hope. It is heart-warming and it leaves one with a feel-good sense. It is worthy of our viewing if even just for Deng Lun’s performance. I guarantee you, he would make you fall head-over-toe for him, if he hasn’t already.

I watched it because of Deng Lun.....LOL

hmm..i just finished this drama 3 days ago and i just have a time to give my review about this drama...

From the story , I think this drama has an okay storyline, there are some lessons that we can take from this story, where home and family are the most important for us, home provides a sense of harmony for a family, and vice versa in harmony a new family can create a comfortable home. So far I am quite fond and satisfied with the storyline ... the one that makes me feel less satisfied is probably the lack of time and allotment for SPC and ZZ in establishing their love, where they are just dating from episode 44 and this drama ends in episode to 48 so that their romantic time is only in the last 4 episodes ... so short ...
I like the courtship of SPC and CZZ, SPC is really very funny and adorable ... I think he will be the most desirable character of the husband, besides being very handsome, he is also kind, honest, attentive and very adorable. besides a good boyfriend, I also feel he is a boss and a good, wise and fair director of his employees ...
for that, if SPC and CZZ were invented in the middle of the story, I think I would be very happy to see more of their romantic and adorable love stories ... lol ....

From acting i give 10 poin, because i think all cast already give their best acting performance for this drama... and of course especially Deng Lun, i already watch many of his drama, and i must admit he has a very good and excellent acting ..he is best actor for me...
besides him, i think angelababy, zhu yi long, and who are as aunt bai, xiao ning, hao mei li , xi shan, manager zheng have a good performance too for this drama..

this drama have a nice ost too, but maybe form all i just like the ost by BII " zui hao de gu shi " , This ost was played when SPC was sad because his father was arrested at the hospital and he went to find zhen zhen, and found zhen zhen also looked for him, then he was sad and cried in zhenzhen's arms, he was afraid of losing his father ...i like that ost....

i give the rewatch value 8 poin, because i think maybe someday I will rewatch this drama again, but maybe just for SPC parts only ... because he is so adorable for me...lol

overall i give 8.5 poin for this drama....and see you again " MY TRUE FRIEND"
thanks for producer, director, all cast, writer, and crew who has made, written and helped this drama...
THANK YOU ALL.....
