soo beautiful drama

this drama deserves more attention . the plot is soo convincing and there are happy moments and sad really tears rolled in my eyes . every actor got a deserving personality. there is good character development in all characters by the end of the series.
coming to actors they did their best
I am a massive fan of wen peng she really did good and she pulled off her role very beautifully
and the starting song is very refreshing and also ending song tells the whole story
in the middle of the series, you may feel oerad just stick to the story
this is full of emotions and also joy with beautiful memories
I wish I can get a roommate like he yu though she looks aggressive, she is very kind-hearted
and junior he yu is looked carefree girl but not she understands everything her cute proposal just melted my heart
and also male lead he got a refreshing face I really like his character

An ordinary story full of touching moments

This is an ordinary story with ordinary characters. But I think the charm of this drama lies in how balanced everything are, and that’s because I think the writer managed to craft the characters with enough balance between depth and simplicity. Sometimes these characters are shallow and predictable, then they’ll do something unexpected that makes you want to root for them.

In here we follow three adults navigating their way to survive in Shanghai— a city that doesn’t seem to give them a break. These characters are just like anyone that I could possibly meet in real life. Much like all of us, they go through the ups and downs of life, they make mistakes, they compromise, they have goals, they work hard. Sometimes it’s rewarded, sometimes it’s not, pretty much exactly like what real life is.

Overall, I had a good time with the drama. It’s a straight-forward story full of tiny touching moments. It’s got enough heart to pull you through, at least that’s what it did to me.
