I got to hand it to the Chinese - they sure know how to deliver drama-kiss-scenes... Truth be told, I am not the biggest fan of pure romance, but here it got me. I will probably rewatch this many times. Do you know the meme-face, which pukes a rainbow? Well, imagine it with puking a stream of pink hearts - that would be me watching this drama. It's embarassing, but I will admit to it. I give this drama a 10, because it deserves this in terms of romance. You can scratch the whole side-plots (of which aren't too many around) and still have an awesome couple. What this drama has NOT and I didn't miss either: 1) Misunderstandings between the couple 2) Second-lead-syndrome 3) Evil mother-in-law or alike 4) over-the-top dramatic circumstances like amnesia, murder, sickness etc. What this drama has: 1) A handsome, cool, intelligent, competent, polite male lead, who does - let's face it - all the right things which no man in reality can live up to 2) A female lead, that manages to be clever, polite, witty, modest but self-assured and lacks the typical submissive side, which I so often dislike in Asian dramas 3) Some cool and funny supporting characters, that have genuine connections between each other 4) Minor tensions that are resolved easily and in a superior way by the main couple 5) All the bullies get their mouths stuffed right away, which is just SO satisfying 6) Some ear-reddening kiss-scenes... This truelly is a drama to romantically relax. It doesn't have the nerve-wrecking plot-twists that we all know and just want to get over with. Instead, we see a believable and perfect love-story and since it doesn't aspire to be more than this, it hits the mark. The only thing I missed from about episode 20 onwards were the scenes from the game, but since they moved the relationship to real life, it happens fluently. I have to admit, I fast-forwarded some of the side-story, just because I couldn't wait for main stuff happening, but I see this as a plus.
