Cast & Credits
Story - the drama had a excellent start that hooked me straightaway and before I knew it I couldn't stop watching. :) However during the middle it started to drag as the story became complicated with all the revenge, drama and betrayals, which consequently caused the drama to have a constant melancholic feel. For someone that usually prefers romantic comedies, during the middle period it was bit hard for me to take in all the sadness and drama that was going on. However that aside the romance in it was totally cute and helped me pull through with all the depression.
In relation to the romance of the story, the ending puzzled me alot as I didn't really work out who she ended up in the end. Other than that this is a great drama overall.
Acting/Cast - I loved the cast, as mentioned before Li Yi Feng was the main reason I tried this drama and he totally did not disappoint. He was the sweet and heart warming male lead that would do anything for the female lead. Loved his scenes with the main actress.
This was the first time watching a drama with this female lead, it was a great experience and I support her fully. She's excellent and beautiful, hope to see more of her works in the future.
Music - The music was great fitted all scenes, however nothing special or memorable.
Rewatch value - For someone like me who doesn't really like too much depression and drama, I don't think I'll be watching this anytime soon however if I have time in the future I might consider.
All in all, this is a great drama for people who like modern romance dramas with a heavy plot on family and business drama with tints of betrayal and friendship.
This novel-based drama has great camera shots, great scene transitions, amazing fashion styles, and great music accompaniments. Straight from the first episode, you'll be sucked in with the fast-paced events. I got hooked by the children in the rain scene and if you watch it, you'll know what I mean. It'll slow down, which is why it stretches to 50 episodes but I wasn't able to stop myself from watching it episode after episode. Even to the very end, I wanted more! [And if you do watch it, you'll REALLY understand what I'm so stuck on.]
Cliche but to the point, the drama has deaths, illnesses, love, betrayals, sibling rivalry, etc. As the synopsis indicates, there's almost a constant melancholic atmosphere surrounding the female lead. Qin Li is a great actress. First saw her in Shining Days and her strong personality in her roles really amazes me. In this, she plays out an innocent young girl that becomes a understanding woman within one scene and it was fantastic! The schemes, the well-thought out plans, the way she takes control of all kinds of situations, it's all so visible in her acting. The people around her are constantly hurt, as well as herself! It was a drag to see the family drama drag on for so long and I actually skipped through most of it.
Then there are the male leads. One acts as a playboy and the other one as a childhood love. The childhood love played by Li Yi Feng was really sweet and heart-wrenching. The playboy played by Lee Wei makes you hate his guts at first but then when he comes back into the drama later on, you'll just grow to love his guts. What's a drama without a love triangle? Along with so many siblings (the father got really busy during the drama), Chang Qing tried to get what's hers and avenge her dead relatives. Despite all her hard work, love doesn't come easily to a girl who wants so much revenge.
The plot was given an 8 for its cliche-ness. Definitely loved the entire drama as a whole!
