What do women in their 30s want? They don’t want to make compromises in their lives. When they hit bumps in the road on their way to happiness, they want their closest friends beside them. When Wen Qi (Hong Xiao Ling) decides to end her failure of a marriage, she takes her two best friends, Zhi Qin (Albee Huang) and Wan Ting (Li Wei Wei), on a getaway to Macau to help her lick her wounds. There, they run into a trio of handsome men (Darren Qiu, Danson Tang and Chang Han) who may or may not restore their faith in love and romance.
Cast & Credits
Acting/Cast: Was not a fan of particularly anyone in this, but now I absolutely loved the cast of this drama! It was perfect! I loved how natural everyone's acting is! It was brilliant! Now for the pairings, I know alot of people liked Danson and Albee the most, but for me I preferred Darren and Vivi. I loved the development of their relationship - it was so natural and something I really admire. Darren really stood out for me in this! I absolutely adored his goofy role and loved the way his character grew as the story progressed.
Music: "Love You... Love You... Love Yoouu.." That's all I remember.. XD I noticed these long dramas never really seem to have any songs that stick to me. I guess since they're long and quite low budget, they don't really concern themselves with the songs too much?
Rewatch Value: Although this drama was very enjoyable, I probably wouldn't want to watch it again. I loved the overall story and development and wish that it could continue. I would totally continue watching more of it.
Overall: This was a great family drama filled with lots of friendship and love. I loved the pacing of the drama and how each characters stories compliments each other and the overall drama itself. I loved how natural everyone was which made the watching experience all the better.
Of course, Danson was phenomenal in this drama; he has now become one of my biases. His relationship with Albee's character was adorable and I liked their romance. Darren being dorky was a completely different character for him; I was blown away at how realistic he made his character out to be. His romance with Vivi was pretty boring, but their friendship was fantastic and well developed. Jennifer Hong's crying scenes were really well done and I liked her strong+independent woman character.
The music was pretty repetitive, but I noticed there was like a 'theme' song for each couple when their individual romantic scene came on. I thought that was pretty cute; I personally liked the songs a lot.
The rewatch value is low because 76 episodes is really long, but I would rewatch some of the creative romantic scenes that I liked. I would recommend this drama for those of you that want to watch a longer story yet is still entertaining. I recommend this drama; it is definitely one of the better long length t-dramas out there! (read my other review; i think this drama is slightly better!) (The 8.5 rating is for its quality BASED on the fact it is a long length drama; if I was rating in comparison to all dramas then it is probably an 8) (9/8)
