Chia Ling is ready for life after 40! A stable relationship, a career change, love and support from her family, and finally getting her own house, what’s not to like about 40? Just when she ventures into this new stage of womanhood, she is told by her doctor that she is showing signs of early menopause. As the clock is ticking, she feels more pressured to figure out what she wants for her life. Yet, she is not the only one! Her father’s health is slowly deteriorating. Realizing time is not on his side, her father reconnects with his first love again, leaving Chia Ling’s mother upset and furious. As Chia Ling juggles between work and relationship, she must also deal with her peculiar family, as her unfaithful father, self-pitying mother, confused brother, and even her hapless cousin in Taipei are all fighting for her attention. Yet, none of these come close to the abrupt surprise waiting around the corner: an innocent, unblemished life that will change Chia Ling’s life on a catastrophic level. (Source: Edit Translation

Inferior to S1 in every way

It was really great being able to revisit these characters that I had grown to care for but the first word that comes to mind when I think about this drama is "unnecessary." Season 1 left off in a great place and I felt like this season had no idea what overarching story it wanted to tell, it left some beloved side characters in the dust, and it also gave up on the past-present parallels.

Our main character went through a lot of character development in the first season, whereas in this one I felt like for everyone we pretty much ended right where we started. Conflicts that seemed to make little sense (as the result of actions that felt out of character) were introduced and then resolved at the end, expectedly.

One thing that I loved about the first season was the way it tied the present timeline into the past. In every episode of this season it was like they tried to do the same thing but couldn't quite think of a story. The scenes jumped back and forth a little more haphazardly and I struggled to understand why this flashback was being shown or honestly what was even happening.

Because of the wishy-washinesss of the plot, it also just felt like many important characters and relationships were sidelined.

I will say that the acting still stays pretty consistent and I still love the casting of the main female lead and her younger self; it just feels so natural with the way they talk and argue and act and it really pulls me in.

It's a great drama to learn about the little bits of Taiwanese culture and language but as a drama I think the first season was way better.
