A Low Budget Drama, But It's Watchable, Just Don't Expect Much

So, the ballet dancing is kind of mediocre. Even though that is the main theme of this drama, I was kind of bored by the scenes of the ballet dance practicing. The actors and actresses did try their best, but you can definitely tell the low budget really affected the outcome of the scenes. The low budget is kind of obvious. The transition clip from scene to scene was reused so many times, I ended up laughing when seeing the transition. Example when I saw those transitions, I'm like, "Oh there's that same person running or dancing again. LOL". They didn't even use younger actors & actresses for the professors when showing their college days. Instead, they just use the same actors and actresses, but tried to make them look young, which didn't work for me.

Besides the mediocre dancing and the low budget drama, this drama was actually okay. I like how this drama revolved around all of the characters, yes even the annoying SFL who does get better eventually. Each dancer or character have a different story background about ballet dancing.
* One who was passionate about dancing but isn't very good but is willing to learn.
* One who's great at dancing but shows no emotion. There's no passion due to being controlled by their parent all of their life.
* There's one who only sees dancing as their future and have no care for anything else
* Others are more focus on confidence on themselves or seeing their dreams beyond ballet dancing.

Couple wise, I loved the main couple. The fact that the ML got jealous so early on was funny to me because he has no reason to be jealous because there literally was no love rival for him. Once they got together, they both supported each other. SFL & SML does eventually get together. Their relationship was a gradual growth on being together. If there was more episodes then I'm pretty sure there would've been 2 other couples as hinted in the final episode.

The only thing I dislike was the 2 moms in this drama. Ling Chen's mom was too ballet focus that she treated him more like a trophy instead of a son. She annoyed me so much for the first half of the drama. Even tried the "break up with my son" trope with Xiao Chun. What's worst, she never apologized for not considering what her son actually wants and the way she treated him all of his life. I thought Ling Chen's mom was bad but nope, Man Man's mom (SFL's mom) was the worst. Putting her dreams on her daughter and couldn't even see her daughter was in pain, and then having the nerve to the put the blame on everybody but herself. Of course the only good parents in this drama was the Xiao Chun's and Pan Pan's.

Overall, average drama. Nothing outstanding but nothing too bad either. Dancing could've been better, but you can't expect much with a low budget drama. Music wise, I only liked the ending credit song. It's a still a nice ending overall though.

Boring, not much to say

I watched this drama to give Ding YiYi another try. She was in Sweet Sweet with Zhao Yiqin one of my favourit actors....

He was just ok in that drama which surprised me as he usually gives excellent performances but when I compared Ding YiYi to his previous female leads I found she didn't really give good performance herself....

This drama, I gave it a go but the storyline is boring, acting is just ok & it's obvious these actors are not ballet dancers but I will say they did give good efforts.....
