Story was simple, rich rural girl yearns to be in urban high-life scene & man yet shuns all the insincerity of the upper-class. This Tdrama was OK, moderate to high cheesiness of acting and silly antics which is common in Tdrama world. The redeeming portion of the entire drama was the onscreen chemistry between the two leads which was refreshing and heartfelt which is not always common in the drama world while the second pairing was distant and possessed NO chemistry! As for music & re-watch values - *blerg*. The OST is beyond cheesy and bothersome kitschy. The second most memorable role was the pet pig who was always dressed up - and not on a plate. Somehow the show entertained and that's why we watch drama. Would I re-watch? Not in my plans, enough pig farmer & pretty boy for awhile...

Story: We have a country girl who raises pigs and wants to enter the high class society and marry a rich guy. She coincidentally meets a rich guy who teaches her the ways of being a high class woman. But he loses everything - his family, love, and money and realises that he has no one in the world that truly cares about him except the 'pig' girl. (I found this odd because he had always had his forever loyal assistant by his side) Of course, the rest of the story that follows is pretty predictable.. nothing outta the ordinary.

Acting/Cast: Mike oh Mikee! I've always loved him since Devil Beside You.. but I've noticed that he does pick some pretty bad dramas - but not this one! I felt that his character had a a little bit of 'Jiang Meng' feel to him and I loved it! There was one particular scene where Mike pinned Ady against the wall and said "..you have to stay by my side.. and be my girl" which was totally Mike from DBY.. hehe LOVED IT XD This is his first collaboration with Ady and I think they acted really well together, but IMO they lacked chemistry. They did feel very natural together but nothing like the chemistry he had with Rainie - I think that will always be his best! I personally didn't really enjoy this coupling much. Ady is a really great actress though! It was also nice to see Shone as the dorky assistant - great to see another Comic Boyz member in the drama world.

Music: I can't say I'm thrilled with the opening song by Shin.. I much prefered the one he sang for Rock N Road! First song though that caught my attention in this drama was the incredibly cute and sweet song 'Melted' by Popu Lady. Every time this song started playing in the background I couldn't help but smile.. I really liked the beginning melody to the song... it's really nice. But I swear this song was part of the OST for another drama.. which I think was actually Fall in Love With Me? Then we reached the end of the first epi and I was in for a pleasant surprise - a beautiful song by none other than my absolute favourite singer.. Hebe! Bonus points scored for this drama! Yes I'm biased XD

Rewatch Value: This was a really entertaining drama. Story was great and the cast was great... but it lacked 'something' that would make me come back to it for a round 2.

Overall: I enjoyed this drama alot from the start to the end though I did lose a bit of interest towards the end. If you're a fan of Mike, I highly recommend this as it was definitely one of his better dramas. I did feel that the drama was kinda unbalanced in terms of story as it followed the two main characters a bit too much and that the rest of the characters were pushed aside when they were no longer linked to them even though they could have a side story of their own.

Ever since I heard about this drama, I've always wanted to watch this because I have always been a fan of Ady An but her other Chinese works never appealed to me (they're mostly period/wuxia) but this one appealed to me because it's her comeback in the Taiwanese dramaland after her success in Autumn's Concerto;. Moving over to this drama, it was just disappointing in so many levels.

One would think, if you have Ady An and Mike He in a feel-good drama, how can it be so bad?! Well, that's what I thought too! I've never watched Mike He in anything before so it was one reason why I chose to watch it as well. I'm pretty sure that I chose the wrong drama to get introduced to him because his acting here didn't make me like him and I felt that his role would've been better if another actor played in it. I didn't have any problems with Ady's acting here because she's really one of the best actresses out there for me. However, even the supporting cast couldn't save this drama. The second female lead was the cliche annoying girl that you'd expect to find in a second lead while the other male leads had nothing special to offer.

For the story, it actually had some interesting parts in the beginning and in the latter parts but it just dragged on for so long that I actually couldn't understand what was happening already. It was partly my fault though because I was also busy playing a game in my phone. You just know a drama's not watchable when you've found something else to do haha!

I have this habit of downloading my favorite OSTs from the dramas that I've watched but it's just sad that the music here didn't even appeal to me at all. Sometimes the music can save a bad drama but this one unfortunately didn't... I'm pretty sure you already got what I've been trying to say. I didn't like this drama so there's no way for me to rewatch this at all.

The drama had so many flashback scenes that they could literally take up the whole episode. I also never thought that there could be something worse than not having kissing scenes... and they are fake kissing scenes! If you get to watch this, you'd totally understand what I'm saying. Overall, I don't recommend this drama and I only gave it an almost passing score for some entertaining and good parts and for Ady An as well. I really felt that so much potential was wasted when the production crew already got some of Taiwan's biggest drama stars in a project but everything else still failed to deliver in the end.

I saw the female lead ADY, first in Autumn's Concerto. She was really good in that drama, but a little bit too tame for my taste. However, her personalty is a complete opposite in this drama, shes feisty, bossy and will literally kick your ass if she feels wronged. I loved her acting here. shows what a great a versatile actress she is. She and my babe, Mike He, really hit it off, good chemistry. This story is kind like the American show, Beverly Hill Billy's, where a rich family has lots of money, but doesn't rub elbows with the snotty rich. They however want their princess and heir (played by Ady) to marry well into the upper class, thereby enlisting the help of a boy is from the upper class, but is currently broke due to the collapse of the family business. Total opposites in personalty and values, lots of fighting and fireworks in the beginning, but the couple learns and grows with each other. Mike's character made the biggest growth, he goes from being a selfish, goal-less playboy, to a responsible store manager who can gut a fish in less than a minute! As other reviewers have said, however, the ending really dragged and so unnecessary. Otherwise, I probably would have given this drama and 9 or 10. Overall, however, one of Mikes better dramas, I would re-watch again in the future.

I BEG YOU. Please do NOT attempt watching this drama. You will regret attempting it. I should've listened ... Half of the time, you can't even hear them talking over the music. The Chemistry between the main leads is awful. The overact out their characters and it's excruciating to watch. I tried so hard to finish this but I couldn't stand it anymore and I had to drop this drama half way through episode 17. I will never get this time back that I wasted. This drama is worse than "Absolute Boyfriend." That's saying something. I got physically past episode 10 but since I was already far in I tried to keep going. SAVE YOURSELVES. Bad acting, bad music, low budget drama. I'D RATE THE REWATCH VALUE AND OVERALL VALUE A ZERO IF I COULD.
