So, we already know that it's about two couples. You've got the older guy Kong (played by Bie) with the younger girl Khaiwan (played by Pearwah), and the younger guy Dao (March) with the older woman Kook (Namcha). The show is VERY self-aware about the age difference and about how creepy it is that a 17/18 year old boy fell in love with a 10 year old girl. The characters in the show fully acknowledge that it's strange. You have to accept that and move on otherwise you'll never get through the first episode. There are some very very cute scenes and some great kisses. The younger guy/older girl couple are frustrating a lot of the time (well, it's mostly her) but when they're not being frustrating, they are so watchable, so adorable, so natural, so giffable. The other couple have some sweet scenes but they have a very different type of chemistry than the other pair do, namely due to her age. The editing could be a bit choppy; sometimes I felt like a whole bunch of scenes had ended up on the cutting room floor but that was mostly in the first 6 or so episodes. It felt smoother after that. I think the cast did a great job for the most part. Again, it was March and Namcha that carried the show, and then the others came in behind them. Bie has room for improvement but he has the ability to make you forget that with his smile. Pearwah is freaking adorable. I really liked Dao's friend Dew (Tay), he was a really lovely secondary character, necessary but not, at the same time. It's rewatchable but I think in a rewatch, you'd fast forward all of the non-cute scenes. Skip the PPL, skip the school scenes, skip the 'Kook being annoying or stupid' scenes, skip the ex-girlfriend. If I was rewatching, I'd probably just watch all of March's scenes plus some of Bie's when he's smiling.
