A love story between an ordinary girl with a stubborn crush and the school genius adored by all that begins when they end up living in the same house.

When a fool falls in love with someone way out of her league, is there hope for a happy ending? Xiang Qin is an ordinary girl who has a persistent crush on Jiang Zhi Shu. After she pours her feelings to him and gets cruelly rejected, Xiang Qin considers giving up for good. However, things happen and her dad takes her along to move in temporarily with Zhi Shu's family. In a sweet and pure romance set in high school, Xiang Qin's cheerful buoyancy shines. Zhi Shu begins to wonder whether Xiang Qin is merely a deviation or the person that he's fated to be with.

I've watched several adaptations of the Itazura Na Kiss franchise and like all others, had high expectations for this one. I literally just stalked the internet waiting for english subs for this to come out so I could watch it. I can honestly say no adaptation has nailed Jiang Zhi Shu's (Irie Noaki) character to the point than this one. There wasn't too much aloofness like the Korean adaptation and he also wasn't too kind/amiable like the Thai version. Previously, my personal Zhi Shu favorite was the Taiwanese version starring Joe Cheng and Ariel Lin because it was the only version of all the ones I've seen that I saw Zhi Shu developing feelings for Xiang Qin and not just proclaiming his love unexpectedly to her at the climax. However, after watching this adaptation, I can honestly say that Darren Wang played Jiang Zhi Shu the best. The Zhi Shu in this movie shows just enough emotion to make his love seem real and maintains the same aloofness to keep to the original plot. Jelly Lin also played a good Yuan Xiang Qin. Her blind and unrequited love was annoying at all, unlike the Xiang Qin in the Taiwanese Movie remake starring Esther Wu.

Now onto the plot. Like all the Itazura Na Kiss remakes, this movie was very fluffy and not to be taken very seriously. There were many overexaggerated plot details that made me laugh because of their absurdity. The romance itself was very cute and light-hearted. I absolutely adored the moments where Zhi Shu would quietly smile to himself after interacting with Xiang Qin. My favorite part was the high school phase. I found it incredulously funny of the school system and how they separated and made a very clear distinction between class A and F. After watching this, I find myself wishing this movie was a drama instead so I could see all the other scenes that the writers left out because of the time constraint of it being a movie. I hope another remake comes out.

To anyone who's watched this: watch their marriage scene on youtube that wasn't included in the movie.

I really, really, really don't understand how this movie's ratings are so high. It's just so cringey. I watch plenty of Asian dramas so I'm no stranger to cringe or secondhand embarrassment, but this was just...bad. Maybe I'm just not used to the pacing of movies, but this seems like a story that needs a great deal more build up. There was SOME build up, and I thought Wang Dalu did a really good job of portraying whatever he had to work with (all 7 stars for acting go to him), but not enough to be believable.

I love Jelly Lin, I loved her in Fights Break Sphere, but I really couldn't get behind her portrayal of Yuan Xiangqin. It just seemed unnatural and cringey in an abnormal way. Also, with an entire Taiwanese cast it seemed like she tried to act with a Taiwanese accent? And her Chinese accent would come out a lot and that just made the entire experience very uncomfortable. I kind of wish she just went with her normal accent. It just made things unnatural and weird.

Overall, wouldn't recommend it.
