Xu Jing Shu of second-year class 1 is a cold person who doesn’t talk a lot, and if it weren’t for the teacher constantly sending her out of math class as punishment, she may as well be invisible. That is until the transfer student Chu You Ning shows up. He’s attracted to her candy-sweet smile, so on certain afternoons, one could see the god of studying, Chu You Ning in the upstairs independent study room teaching math to Xu Jing Shu.

Sweet, pure, romance of two deskmate

This drama is 24 episodes, but each episode isa round 10- 13 minutes long. This drama definitely is really light hearted, and refreshing. I absoutely loved it.

Let's talk about how pure and sweet this drama was. Although there isnt any kissing , but you can feel their chemistry and relationship. It's pure and puppy dog love like. There isnt anything too complicated. There definitely are heart beating moments. Its a little cliche ,but still very sweet and touching.

Female lead is 17 years old. The male lead transfers from another high school. He is portrayed as cool and not really caring about school . Female lead is cute in stature , hardworking but not good at math. This drama is some snippets of what happens during school, like studying for exams, people stealing the class money, every day situation in the classes. It feel really down to earth. I don't know why people give it such a low rating. This drama for once was one that i didnt need the male lead to say " be my girlfriend , or lets be together". They kinda were naturally together and even had the ai mei feel >_<. Its sad that he had to leave, and not see her for ten years, ( that the cliche bit of the story)

I shed some tears in the last episode, where she walks down memory lane and says good bye to her pass and the memories of her deskmate.

Not to mention two of the ost/songs are very catching and is very fitting for this drama! definitely worth listening to and watching this drama. Because this drama was so short, there isnt the need to skip over a lot of parts.

Not Sure Why the Rating is Low?

First of all, I am not a native Chinese neither am proficient in Mandarin, I watched it raw and I enjoyed it. After 100+ Chinese dramas watched, I can pick up words here and there and the simple story line is easy to follow. For main issues to understand I just google translated it. Anyways, It's a short high school drama (the campus life and campus romance tags are wrong cos the setting is high school). I don't watch high school dramas, but the OTP is so cuuute ❤️ together and they look alike like they are made for each other, lol. Besides, it's only 24 episodes of 12 minutes each, it's a breeze.
So the story is just a high school cliche of a handsome transfer student who doesn't really care about being in school, somewhat lazy but genius. Of course he has to sit next to a cute girl who is typical studious but dumb in math to the point being ridiculed by the teacher in front of her classmates. So the guy helps her and they become fast friends along with others, navigating thru the high school. The story is told as a flashback by the Female Lead. The acting is good, I love the sweet chemistry between the new comers Chen Xiang You (陈翔宇) and Chen Si Yu (陈思宇), and I want to see their acting again in the future. Although, if you are a fan of drama kisses you won't see any here cos China censorship doesn't permit any type of kissing in their high school dramas. The OST is good "Don't Say Sorry" duet by Liu Binhao & Song Xi, see the OST link in my custom list of 2020 Completed Dramas if you want to know. I do not want to re-watch it cos simply it's a high school drama which genre I usually despise.
If you want to watch it raw, see the conversation between me and the first reviewer (I'm the second) to get the link.
So to answer my own question in the title: Easy to guess that people rated low but did not even watch it because there is no (English) sub. Hopefully, in the future some fan will pick it up, cos it's a sweet short teenage romance.
