1 litre of tears (which this drama is a remake of) was one of the first Asian dramas I ever watched and it left a very deep impression in my heart. To surpass it, in my eyes, was quite a task. Regardless, this drama surprised me. It was really good! Of course there were quite a few changes. For instance, the cast in this version was a little older. But I enjoyed these changes too. This drama made me cry just as much as 1 litre of tears did. The cast was perfect and the acting was just brilliant.

I would recommend this to everyone, regardless of genre preference. The only problem is that this drama is very difficult to catch hold of. This is probably why it's not as popular on the internet. I didn't even know a Chinese version existed until a classmate of mine told me about it. She gave me it's DVD and I dramathoned the whole thing in 3 days. I hope this drama gets more attention and I hope someone uploads it somewhere with subs.

sweet love story and touching drama

Sooo..I thought I should add another review to this drama. I'll try my best to make it spoiler free!

So first I want to start off by saying that the part in the summary ( While on vacation with his girlfriend, Gu Yihang(Liu Enyou) hires He Tongyao(Jin Sha) as their tour guide, inadvertantly causing her to get in a car accident.) saying that they hire her as a tour guide, isn't in the drama as far as I remember.
I loved this drama, but the Japanese drama made me cry more. I think mostly because it's based on a real person and the Jdrama follows her story closer than this drama (other than adding a ML).

On to my review:

- This drama is loosely based off of 1 liter of tears (diary of aya kito) and the Japanese drama from 2005. I've seen the J-drama before this and I would recommend watching! This drama does follow most of the original story, but there are many plot points that aren't in the Jdrama.

Acting/Cast: I think all the cast did a great job. The mom did annoy me a bit in the beginning of the drama, but otherwise I also like the mother-daughter relationship in this drama and think the actors did a good job, because they really look like mother and daughter. I like the ML actor a lot and think the main couple look good together.

Music: I like the music, though it wasn't anything amazing, but then again I think it fit this drama perfectly!
But one thing that annoyed me and maybe it's just the file I watched, but the music is oddly placed. Sometimes even two songs are playing at once or there are two tracks of the same song, but one is a bit off sync. Luckily in the last few episodes this wasn't the case.

Re-watch value: This was sad, but it didn't make me cry as much as the Jdrama. maybe also because it's longer. But there are definitely scenes between the main couple that I'll watch again.

Story/Overall rating: Overall I give the story a 10/10.
Although there were many changes made I still enjoyed this drama, even though I knew how it would end. The Fl and ML get together towards the middle of the drama and their love story is so cute.
This is a sad but inspiring drama, mainly because tong yao keeps fighting until the end.

Ending: I won't spoil too much, but I'll say that the ending is open. If you've read the book or seen the Jdrama then you'll know how it ends. But they didn't show her death in this drama, in fact it ends with a photo of her pregnant and then a voice over of the ML and their child speaking.

Lastly: This drama should definitely be watched by a much larger audience then it appears to have. If you can't find it then you can look on myasiantv, kissasian or drama cool. BUT I CAN'T FIND EP 24, 26,27,28 SUBBED.
