Fu Yun Shen, a researcher at a pharmaceutical company, and Zhu Jiu, a surgeon embark on a humanitarian medical rescue in an underprivileged region. A misunderstanding means they get off on the wrong foot. But over time, they begin to feel the pull of attraction. When a discovery about the true nature of his assignment and a car crash leaves Fu Yun Shen injured and jaded, he thinks his relationship with Zhu Jiu is doomed. However, fate isn’t done with this pair yet: Two years later, Zhu Jiu and Fu Yun Shen meet again, in very different circumstances. They once again feel the tug of romance, and resolve to try to make love work the second time around. But as they rekindle their relationship, Zhu Jiu makes startling – and unsettling – discoveries about the death of her parents. Will these revelations derail romance for the young couple? Or can the power of love conquer all? (Source : VIKI) ~~ Adapted from the novel "South Wind Knows My Mood" (南风知我意) by Qi Wei (七微). Edit Translation

Watch it for the actors Not the plot it's a mess

I've waited for this drama for two years since I watched the many trailers of this drama two years ago and it spoiled almost the entire drama, I was so happy and anxious for its release and it kept being rumored to air every few months since then and never materialized
After Mysterious Lotus casebook drama and the Huge success it gained from the amazing acting skills Cheng Yi portrayed in it this drama was due to air and used that huge success of the main lead to its benefit
it's like YouKu Knew if this drama aired solely on its own Schedule it wouldn't get any ratings and would fail miserably
so It worked
Fans are very happy with Mysterious Lotus casebook and Cheng Yi's great success they became very eager to watch his next thing even though this drama was a rushed drama production after Stay with Me drama that had the same two main leads as a couple
the promotions weren't big nor there were any but leaked behind-the-scenes videos a lot of them before its release
We watched the drama with a lot of expectations but it kind of disappointed us as old fans from two years ago

The Plot

1-Very weak draggy and boring plot with a typical Angsty melodramatic story
2-Very annoying obnoxious characters who keep hurting the main couples for very poor reasons
3-Very Typical ending with a happy ending just because we need to wrap up things

The Actors

the main leads were amazing acting wise, Cheng Yi is truly the king of whump and hurt scenes
he can make you feel very sad and emotional every time he appears, he delivers his character beautifully and that's why I watched the drama just for his amazing angsty scenes and even the romantic ones were very touching
The chemistry between the leads was on point
the side characters were annoying most of the time but the actors did their jobs very good can't complain about the acting

The production

Very low production to the point of the actors using their own real-life clothes
Cheng Yi wore his actual real-life clothes in the drama and was shown many times recently wearing the same outfits in public
And some other low production quality from cinematography to sound to special effects

The overall feeling from this drama is that it's okay drama Not bad Not very good
Just okay
If you love the actors you will watch it and feel happy watching it no matter how poor the plot was

Beautiful Love Overcoming it All

This series is a melodrama that delivers. The ML and FL were very good in the dynamic changes and challenges of their roles. Their chemistry was heartwarming and at times heartbreaking. However, the supporting cast was solid in conveying the storyline without things seeming forced. The emotional difficulties coming from traumas mental and physical was displayed quite brilliantly. There are parts where the storyline starts to drag a bit and feel repetitious. Yet, the ending received after all the ebb and flow of life tribulations and relational demands made it all worth it. This is a solid watch.
