Why Watch?

The mystery surrounding Miao Miao's native village and why the car accident happened keeps me on the edge of my seat every episode. It makes you WANT to watch more to find out the truth. Plus Lin Zi Yan is one of the strongest female characters I've seen in a Taiwanese drama in a long time. The developing romances are adorable and actually seem quite natural in some cases. If anything you should watch for the OST alone! The music is to die for!

Here's some examples so you can see what I mean!

A couple trailers for you all to enjoy!

The next episode airs March 20th, I hope to see your comments in the feeds as you all enjoy the drama that is quickly becoming my favorite of 2015!
