Knowing nothing more than the working-class life he is born into, headstrong Lu Xiao Lu reluctantly starts down the path he is expected to follow. At age nineteen in 1990s China, he feels pressure to follow suit with those around him and takes a job at the town’s saccharin factory. Slowly, he adjusts to the bureaucratic factory routine, making the best of the situation by bonding with coworkers, flirting with girls, and refusing to give in completely to the expectations of those around him. As Lu Xiao Lu finds his way, a startling portrait of an economically expanding China comes into view; the propaganda of a common goal gives way to a bottom-line system that he sees as indifferent to individual happiness. But thanks to the relationships he develops, Lu Xiao Lu decides to fight for the life he wants. (Source: Goodreads) ~~ Adapted from the novel "Young Babylon" (少年巴比伦) by Lu Nei (路内). Edit Translation

A Realistic Drama About Growing Up

This drama is not for those who were looking for a perfect and flawless ML. The ML grew up being loved by his parents and tolerated in the household. He is a reckless and opinionated character who will stand up for what he thinks is right. The character is realistic as for people like his age, they are hot-blooded. They will undergo numerous mistakes, embarrassing ones even. I would also like to add the friendship of the ML with his friends are amusing to watch, they did undergo trials too but the friendship still remains. The ML tried his best to be suitable for the FL despite his shortcomings. I like his persistence but just like we humans in reality, there are things that we need to give up for the people we love.

I am now officially Lu Xiaolu's Mom.

It's a journey about pure joy of adolescent turns into a harsh reality of growing up and maturing together. As a friend, as a lover, as a brother, as a sister, as an enemy.
They're bound to be together and they will always be.
I can't really put up any words to describe this one cause of the realistic plot and emotions expressed by the actors and actresses. They got me speechless sometimes.

Youth is not always about being happy and free. It's about choices and plans. Therefore we can't always get what we want but no matter what happens, my heart will stay the same.

Lu Xiaolu as the ML has taught us a lot of things. He is a stubborn, kindhearted, and hardworking person who loves his family and friend so much.

Even if he's not as greenflag as other MLs, I love him from the deepest of my heart. He has my whole heart. Let me watch him grow older I will never be bored. It's such a pride to watch him changing from a playful teenager into a grown man with mustache on his face. Gosh I will miss him very much.
