Hi everyone,
Just a quick take on this HELLO AGAIN...
It's a satisfying watch, it makes you cry, sympathise, it makes you laugh, it gives you goosebumps....
The acting was pretty good... you almost can feel them...the kisses were on point (I've developed an obssession with kissing scenes...)
Its just one of those dramas you don't regret watching...even if you think some of it is cheesy...
I loved the banter between the leads... it was funny and well somewhat irritating....but all in all great..
Communication is the key.
I just liked it..

So have a go and decide for yourselves!!!

Xoxo

This is such a delightful drama to watch! This is an office romantic comedy that is really fun to watch. The actors did a really good job bringing these characters to life and there is great chemistry among the characters. The leading male, Bruce Hung as Yang Zi Hao, really held the show together. His character is insightful and steadfast in loving her. Although the female lead is not the greatest choice for this character because sometimes she couldn’t convey her emotional state with the right expressions, especially on the romantic scenes, she did pretty well otherwise. The leading male more than compensated, especially in their interactions and romantic scenes. The drama has a good supporting cast and it’s enjoyable to watch. The drama has a very good OST, and also the use of playful onomatopoeia sound effects and the dancing choreography incorporation were a great idea! *Watch pass the end of last episode, until the very end! Enjoy it!

Oh joy, another office romcom from Taiwan. This time with a serious undertone, Hello Again! is about the distinction between teasing that draws us closer, and teasing that pushes us apart.

The plot
Year after year the nice but serious bluestocking Chang Ke Ai (played by Amber An) ends first of all students at her local school. She has friends and is generally admired. Still there’s one person, rich boy Yang Zi Hao (played by Bruce Hung) who goes out of his way to tease her whenever he can. However Ke Ai keeps her cool, completely ignoring him when she passes him at school.
One day Zi Hao intentionally disturbs her class while Ke Ai is giving training course to fellow students for college entrance examination. This time she gets very angry, commenting on his easy life style, saying his rich family will help him anyway, urging him to think of other people for once, because “not everyone is as fortunate as you”. Knowing this is true Zi Hao gets also furious. Wanting to proof himself in front of everybody he swears he’ll get the same results as Ke Ai. Laughingly she makes a bet to carry his schoolbooks all year long if he’ll ever succeed.
After that Zi Hao works his head off, and of course, he succeeds.
Full of teasing intentions Zi Hao starts at university in the business management department, eagerly awaiting Ke Ai to join him, until he discovers she isn't there. For mysterious reasons she gave up her education and decided to stay with her mother.
Ten years later, the two meet again, the gap between their worlds has become even bigger. Yang Zi Hao is now the executive vice president of his family business "Gorgeous Department Store", while Chang Ke Ai is a market vendor. Their story unfolds...Hello Again.

Cons
This show has the usual, fluffy officeromance but the first half was really depressing. I like to escape the daily struggle for life by looking at beautiful actors, but this time I felt confronted with the constant sorrows of the female lead. Of course the makers have to proof she’s completely worn out, out of luck for the past ten years, but it didn’t make her attractive. Also given the fact that actress Amber An is five years senior to actor Bruce Hung didn’t help, it just showed. It made me wonder why the male lead would fall for her, other than the urge to tease her, which made him even more immature, and younger than her.
Another thing is the unneeded love triangle with the good looking friend she met in front of college. Themes as loan sharks, team building, family business are really enough.

Pros
I don’t know the ending, because this show is still running, but I already like the theme of a rich male lead who is driven by comments of a poor girl in his youth. In return I would love to see he has a purpose for her as well, in other ways than good looks and status. For now, I'll have to wait and see.
