In the early autumn of 2012, Yucai Middle School welcomes a cheerful transfer student named Su Zai Zai. On the first day of school, Su Zai Zai encounters the aloof and cool Zhang Lu Rang and falls in love with him at first sight. Behind Zhang Lu Rang's seemingly outstanding academic performance and privileged family background, he is a "contradictory" person who appears to be quite confident on the outside yet constantly doubts himself on the inside. Due to the presence of his genius younger brother, Zhang Lu Li, Zhang Lu Rang is constantly compared to him by his mother. For over a decade, Zhang Lu Rang's life has been like living inside a thick shell. He is introverted and speaks little. He looks composed and polite but keeps everyone at a distance. However, Zhang Lu Rang's life changes when he meets the bubbly and forward Su Zai Zai, and joins hands with old and new friends Gu ran, Guan Fang, and Su Zai Zai's best friend Jiang Jia. They help him understand the meaning of self and he slowly begins to understand how to plan his life. Zhang Lu Rang and Su Zai Zai work towards their goals while supporting one another, as romance begins to blossom throughout their friend group.

If you want lots of drama, love triangles or misunderstandings that drag too long... look elsewhere.

If I had to use three words to describe this drama they would be soft, fluffy and heartwarming. It falls into a very well known category, which is Coming Of Age School Drama, but unlike so many others before it, it does not care to create unnecessary plots where our leads suffer too much in their relationship (by breaking up out of nowhere, for example) or act stupidly for the sake of creating conflict; one of its greatest strengths is that characters trust each other and as a result, they won't blindly believe what outside forces try to convince them of when it comes to one another, which is something that happens way too often in dramas like this one.

Are there misunderstandings? Of course, but misunderstandings *are* a part of life and having them in small quantities in dramas and done realistically adds to them, and When I Fly Towards you manages to sprinkle them in a way that feels organic enough that you believe it could easily happen in real life.

This drama is something to watch when you need something cute and uplifting with the certainty that good things will keep happening as you watch and problems will be solved. It's comforting and wholesome, and manages to be those things without its characters leaning too much into being cheesy, corny or cringeworthy. An amazing feat, without a doubt.

The most youthful youth drama!

The best youth drama I have watched this year. Felt like I lived the high school life I always wanted through them. The scenes did not feel like cringe at all but showed how crushing on someone at that age looks so innocent and lovely. No unnecessary dramas and no dull moments. The love between them won my heart and got me kicking the air and dying of jealousy. However, I find the lines to be more powerful and even a simple line went really deep to my heart. A simple drama that I can't recommend enough!
