Cast & Credits
Acting/Cast: Again, I loved the cast! I love Chris, he has recently become one of my favourite actors from King Flowers. He was amazing! And he was amazing in this too! *little fan girl squeal* Was a bit iffy that they had their singing dubbed though. I also used to really like Kimi back when she debuted but was disappointed when she didn't appear in much dramas anymore until the recent years. So yes, I was thrilled to see her in this! She was a little too animated and bubbly in this, but by the end you could see her growth and maturity which is great! I was also quite surprised to hear her sing! She wasn't dubbed. However, in the last episode, they dubbed her with Jia Jia's singing - which was actually meant to be the singing voice for Nita. To me that was a fail. XD Also worth mentioning was Mami, she was so adorable and her singing was so sweet and innocent. Love her voice.
Music: The opening song by Ah Shin was amazing! I got chills every time I listen to it! I usually skip the opening and straight to the drama, but for this I listened to it every time! Love it! Also was never a big fan of Mayday but I've heard so much good songs from them! Really talented and awesome music!
Rewatch Value: I would skip through the episodes just to watch Chris!
Overall: Although this drama was not perfect it was still a great drama. Great start! Great end! Great acting! Great music! Great story! Best of all, there wasn't much dragging at all. I really enjoyed this one and would recommend it to everyone!
Next, simply put, the acting of the cast was just so well done. Of course I adored Chris Wu's acting because I feel like every part of him could act. Kimi did a great job and didn't make me want to barf like some other T-drama leads. Yes at first, her character made me feel really vexed because it was too "over" but it made great developments as the drama went on. Nita and Mike did a decent job with their acting too. Actually, the supporting cast and staff were so awesome in this drama.
The music in this drama is freakin' mind-numbing. I don't think I've ever listed to an opening song so much from a Taiwanese drama in my life. You're the Only One by Mayday is now one of my favorite songs and will forever remain so. Now I started to take notice of Mayday ever since I found out that they were behind this song. The other songs from this drama such as the ending by Jia Jia is so nice to hear too. It is one of those slow songs that that I actually like listening to which is rare.
Even though this is a Chris Wu drama, this drama portrays a journey and it is very hard to capture those same feelings when watching this drama again.
Overall this drama got a lot of things right from the start. It is an all-round recommended T-drama to watch and will not bore the hell out of you.
