Cast & Credits
The acting was cute, kind of amateurish. The main Albee & Ah Zhe were cute together but the kissing scenes needed work. All the other characters added to the story somewhat.
The music was good & pertinent to the situations. I would re-watch this one sometime.
I personally found the plot really re-refreshing, as I don’t know of many dramas where the rich girl turns poor.
Albee’s personality was a nice change to the spoilt rich-kid image. Also how the characters didn’t just suddenly change in one episode it was a gradual build up over the season which was a nice change.
The 13 episodes made it was a perfect length, the storylines didn’t have to get cut or dragged on for episodes. This is the first time in a LONG time where I’ve watched every single part of the drama without skipping a single second.
Sure the clothes, phones, cars etc weren’t ‘up to date’ however this drama is coming up to 10 years old!
I can see how some people might not like this however I didn’t have a problem with it.
Music wise I liked the title song however I don’t know what other songs there was (as most of the mirrors have cut the endings)
Negative parts; some of the acting was shady however I’m not sure if the directors wanted the over acting reactions. The Kissing scenes like most Adramas could have been improved or more added in (however this could be culture different between Europe & Asia)
My score; 9/10.
