#I am Peng Guanying fan#

I really really enjoyed this drama.
Especially ML eyes made me chilled.
His acting in this movie is very cool and cruel.
From the start of the movie, I know the ending is not romantic and I accept ML deserves to die.
Really really heart-touching acting. I’m proud of being his fan.
As for FL, she is so smart and wild. That’s why she can survive in this movie. She is also good at acting.
They got chemistry in this movie and I am looking forward this couple together in drama again.

Handsome Obsession

This is quite a dark and twisted storyline, so if you don't like dark, twisted, gritty dramas, then don't go for this one.

The first episode has a scene of potential rape too, which we come to know later on didn't happen, but the way it is shown is really scary and dark. I would skip the first episode entirely for this reason.

They do the whole Face/Off trope here. The one where we are supposed to believe that one human's face can be directly transfered onto another human's completely different bone structure so perfectly, that he comes out of it looking exactly like Peng Guan Ying. We all know that you can't plastic surgery your way to looking exactly like Peng Guan Ying, no matter how much you might want to, which is why I called this drama "gritty", not "realistic".

The fact that the antagonist looks like Peng Guan Ying, who is a very good actor, made it difficult not to cheer for him, even as (or maybe especially because of) he falls into a dark toxic love obsession for the FL.

I'm not going to give the guy brownie points for not sexually assaulting the FL when he easily could have. The guy sexually harrasses the absolutely stunning FL and even physically assaults her near the beginning. I'll just say that from the comfort of my computer, it's hard to look away and not empathize with such a gorgeous looking man. It's a deep failing on my part, but I'm admitting to it now. This antagonist is ridiculously good looking, and it's hard to look at the very, very average looking male protagonists after having your eyes feast on the beauty of Peng Guan Ying.

Equally gorgeous is our FL, who is also an excellent actress. She works to take down the antagonist's crime organization from the inside as his hostage. She plays on his obsession for her like a violin, and it is very satisfying to watch. A farfetched storyline drama? To be sure! But with good acting from the leads.

I'm giving this 7.5 pinky fingers out of 10.
