It tells the ten years of romance between Lu Qin Yang and Ling Yi Yao. They were desperate to be together, they struggled against the harsh reality, and after all was said and done, is the love that they have still the same? Have you ever loved someone so much that you'd do everything to be with them? Ten years ago, when he was just a poor student, Lu Qin Yang publicly confessed his feelings for Ling Yi Yao. From the school campus to society, Qin Yang would lay down his life to make Yi Yao happy. However, issues over money, housing, and their marriage become the true tests of their love for each other that have pushed them further and further apart. In their ten-year long-distance race, can they remember the promise they once engraved in their hearts when they said: "I want us to be together." (Source: ~~ Adapted from the novel "My Girlfriend Who Ran for Ten Years Is Going to Marry Tomorrow" (与我十年长跑的女友明天要嫁人了) by Li Hai Bo (李海波). Edit Translation

An Underrated Realistic Love Story.

I first came across this movie in the MDL article, Underrated Movies with Low number of Watchers. Honestly, it deserves to be on that list. I decided to give this a try because I'm watching an airing drama of the FL and wanted to see her other works. Her acting in the drama is very convincing, but in this movie, she was wonderful! And not just her, the ML too was just as wonderful! Their acting, cinematography, and direction are all really good.
The storyline might be something very usual but what makes the movie unusual is its realistic approach to the love story. While I'm not really fond of works that don't end on a happy note, this is an exception. What really caught my eye was the title. I've always heard others say, Love brings people together but here, it's the opposite.
Life isn't a bed of roses and despite the harsh work circumstances, Lu Qin Yang stays true to his values and Ling Yi Yao waits patiently for him. They love each other to the point that she is ready to leave her house for him after her mom is not quite happy about their relationship and he goes to great lengths to earn enough money just so he can give her a comfortable life. Eventually, it's the same love that drives them apart.
Although it made me bawl my eyes out, I'm not really pleased with the ending. From the comments, it seems like an open ending and that relieved me a teeny tiny bit.
But I recommend watching this if you don't mind such endings because the movie, in general, was satisfying.

Like my title says. This was amazing, no matter what yall say. It was real and vulnerable. Lu Qin Yang loves Ling Yi Yao with all of his heart and is willing to do anything and everything for her. He tries to live up to what he wants to provide for her all while dealing with her mom who thinks he isnt worth it. Ling Yi Yao loves Lu Qin Yang despite what her mom thinks and what Qin Yang believes of himself. It was truly beautiful. They both love each other so much they are willing to "suffer" to be with each other.
