84% A simple, cute drama… that what I love! And you’ll get to know the songs very well, they are all very nice.
And… I hate the fact that the voices are dubbed… I know the voice of Chen Qiao En so well that I just can’t recognize her”new” voice. And I don’t know if Chinese Dramas are like this, but each episode ends very abruptly… So this post will be divides in points… New experience… hope you like it!
- Relationship between Jiaqi (lead female character) & Dongzi (lead male character)
Roy Chiu is soo handsome! Even though his haircut is… a little old style, but I still admire him. He’s like a mix of the hot Mike He and the cute Figaro Ceng. He’s also really cute and we just can’t not feel “aww” when we know that Roy and Chen Qiao En were dating while filming the drama. Their relationship starts weirdly at the beginning and many hints help us to foreshadow about the untruthful love he had for her. It seems… nonsense, but you will understand while watching. Their love story is really cute and some dramatic events lead to a very sad ending.
- Jiaqi VS Heping (supporting male character)
They were a couple in love and because of the mother, they had to break up. It leads them to a very sad separation and when they find each other again, it’s a very hard meeting. However, they end up being good friends and almost family.
- Jiaqi VS her mother
They didn’t meet for 20 years and when they finally met, it’s really hard for them to get used to each other. Jiaqi felt abandoned by her mother, so she had a hard time accepting to have a irresponsible mother.
- Jiaqi VS her senior and her best friend
They are extremely good friends. They confess everything to each other. The senior and the best friend will be dating with the help of Jiaqi.
- Jiaqi VS her colleagues & boss
She’s a really hardworking person and she gives great respect to her boss. She often helps the people around her and even helped the daughter of her colleague. After the half of the drama, she would open a coffee shop.
- Jiaqi VS her ex-boyfriend’s mother
This mother is the one we usually hate during all the drama… until she suddenly becomes a good person. Well, it was hate between them for a long time… and yea. The ex-boyfriend is Heping and his relationship was difficult with his mother also. However, everything became clearer when his father died in an accident.
- Dongzi VS family [Sister & father]
He’s the big brother of the family. He doesn’t have a mother. His father is very busy with work (but he’s really nice!) He loves his sister, who is a very kind person. When his sister was kidnapped by a psycho dude, he went to save her heroically. He supported the love story of her sister all long.
- Dongzi VS Heping
They were best friends for a really long time. When Heping broke up with Jiaqi, he was depressed and wanted to die. Dongzi helped him and he wanted get revenged on Jiaqi. They fought for love together and… that’s probably what we call… brotherly love when they’re not brothers… (doesn’t make sense… but it doesn’t matter…)
- Dongzi VS the kids
When he first said he had a daughter, I couldn’t imagine what it was. Now, I spoil it to everyone. Orphans. They will be very important for the relationship between him and Jiaqi. He often thinks of them and they are indeed very lovely.
- Dongzi VS his sickness
This is a hard matter for him. We can’t forget that we can in a drama, and so, there must be a sickness. He’s really suffering a lot because of this. Physically and psychologically. [It reminds me of Why Why Love]. Does he die or not? He should, but that’s something you should discover yourself.
So, this drama is very typical but also very different. It talks about MANY aspects of life and it’s easily enjoyable.
