Su Yi loses her memory after getting burnt in a fire accident. In the midst of searching for the truth and her memories, she meets Li Jia Cheng, who has countless ties to the incident. Li Jia Cheng is considered a steel person with a cold personality, having been born into a family that values money and power and without warmth. His destiny has been arranged from birth: work hard on the set target and be the successor of the Li group. The two of them are at odds in the beginning, but gradually form a tactical partnership of equal footing. Su Yi challenges his outlook and beliefs and allows him to break through all obstacles in the path of true love. (Source: DramaWiki; sohu) Edit Translation

Mysterious FL, Gorgeous ML

Memory loss is a popular theme in Chinese dramas. But the memory loss in this story is slightly different - the character’s memory is surgically removed. Despite the confusion of the beginning episodes because of poor writing, and poor acting by the female lead, I press on as her mysterious background combined with the mysteries around her captivate me. A murderous hidden antagonist, an investigative journalist, and most of all, a devoted and gorgeous male lead, all these intrigue me with a plot propelled by the mysteries.

When everyone thinks she has died in a car fire accident, Su Yi (Yuan Yu Xuan) comes back to seek for answers of what had happened 7 years ago when her father was slandered and killed in the same accident with her. She has lost memory of a big chunk of her life, including her time with her lover, Li Jia Shang (Liu Yi Chang) whom she doesn’t even know now. For Li Jia Shang, Mu Xiao (aka Su Yi) is his only love and has remained single since she’s gone. The dynamics between the couple, with the assistance of their buddies, Zheng He (Zhang Si Fan) and Xia Xi Yang (Xu Xiao Nuo), are wonderful to watch. Though I didn’t like the FL’s character in the beginning, I began to understand her better as the story unfolds. Having said that, Yuan Yu Xuan’s acting still requires improvement as she’s rather confusing with inappropriate expressions that do not synch with the moments; she is at times stiff and unnatural though she dresses extremely well. I do enjoy Liu Yi Chang’s and other cast members’ acting. I find Liu Yi Chang charismatic and fits the character he plays very well.

My Verdict
The plotline is quite intriguing as viewers want to find out what actually had happened 7 years ago, who Su Yi is, why she cannot remember Li Jia Shang at all, and who the obnoxious hidden villain is. There is a lot of twists and turns, intimacy and passionate kisses, and two pairs of lovely side couples.

There are certainly many flaws and plot holes but everything manages to brush through rather nicely for the ending. Having said that, many events and actions are of no consequence and do not provide additional information for the viewers, understandably they are merely there as fillers. Time and time again, a super nasty annoying character gets away with impunity. The dubbed voices also do not synch very well with the mouth movements.

For romance buffs, the main couple has never split up and has always remained true to each other. I love how devoted and committed Li Jia Shang is. He's always there to help Su Yi whenever she's in trouble.

Easy to watch, relatively short drama with less than 30 mins for each episode. Good enough to entertain.

Lovely but a bit disappointed

I’m always like to share a review after watching the dramas. It is because if the drama was interesting I thought it better for people to watch but if its not then I want to make sure people avoid to watch.

For this drama I read the synopsis before watching and expecting it to be better and interesting storyline but when I watched it for half of the episodes, it’s turned out a bit disappointed. Male lead was handsome, rich and young CEO but somehow very slow in relationship. He was too easygoing since he really loves female lead even when she did everything that can disappointed him but he can still accepted it. He did not mad or think about his feeling first even when female did not trust him at all and hide many things from him. He gladly accepted it all.

The character of Li Jiashang was a bit disappointed since I’m expected him to be dominant and smart person but he’s not. The character of Su Yi or Mu Xiao a bit annoyance since she only care about her past or his father’s incident. She did not care about Li Jiashang even he really loves her and only did what she wanted.

I liked the other two couples even their scene were not much. The second couple was a playboy man and dominant women while third couple was career women and young man. These couple were interesting than main couple since they’re do not have any stupid problems. They’re only focused on their own relationship and love each other especially for the third couple.

I love their OST. It’s quiet nice to hear.

For overall, the drama was nice and only had a bit disappointed. If you are willing to watch then you can watch it since Li Jiashang was quite handsome and there were also many kisses from this drama so that you can expecting it.

I did watch it and skipped it too. But I’m not gonna watch it again.
