Story/Synopsis:

Han Qi Luo, an extremely shy art student, went to the same college as Chen Ling, a popular playboy. By chance one day they met at a park when Ling asked Qi Luo for direction to a hospital to visit his friend who was injured in a bike racing incident. Hurriedly Qi Luo drew him a map, unknowing that she was drawing on the back of one of her sketches. She ran off before he could thank her. He then noticed the sketch of a mother holding a baby and was touched. In school Qi Luo was sexually harassed by a teacher and Ling came to her rescue. They began to grow fond of each other but each of them had a secret past that needed to be addressed and overcome before they could accept and love one another freely.

Essbee’s Opinion:

80%

I really loved this drama even though it wasn’t the usual style I like. There were some deep feelings in it and it’s sometimes very upsetting.

Of course, when he actors were really into their acting, we can even feel more the love between them. (That’s actually because they were really dating at that time!) Also, I think that both protagonists had fears that made the drama really special.

Seriously, when I have read the synopsis, I didn’t think that it was going to be good. However, at that time, I just finished the two seasons of Meteor Garden and I really loved Barbie. At that time, I didn’t like Vic Zhou THAT much. But then, after Mars, I really loved this actor. He just amazed me after Black & White… Yeah, so I was in the mood of watching a drama with these actors. Then, it really wasn’t what I expected and I loved it.

Oh, and there aren’t many music, but the opening and the ending are both really cool… In conclusion: DO NOT BE TRICKED BY THE SYNOPSIS WHICH DOES NOT CONTAIN THE REAL IMPORTANT POINT OF THE DRAMA!

OMG! I forgot about it! I love seeing the motorcycle course! I love extreme sports… That had made my day! :]
