This story is about how the couple learns to like each other after having disagreements in the beginning, as well as fighting the injustices the media throw at them. Will Xiao Shi finally break her 3 months curse?

Essbee’s Opinion:


The story is really special. It’s the story between a super star and a “normal” girl who has been cursed. Of course, they got together by a misunderstanding, and they’ll start liking each other more and more. I liked this drama since it was enjoyable. There are some similarities with the Korean drama, Full house: their relationship, their love contract, media’s influence, family’s importance.

Cyndi Wang is really pretty, and she’s a good singer, but I was really surprised by her voice. It’s some kind of a high-pitched sound, but… it’s hard to describe. I needed some time to get used to it. Then, Nicholas Teo is also a singer, a magnificent one. Both haven’t been acting a lot, so I think that they were pretty good for new actors. However, I really loved the supporting cast: Gino and Joyce Zhao. Gino is absolutely handsome and I love him so much! He always plays different kind of character and he always amazes us. Joyce Zhao is a pretty girl and we just hated her enough in the drama.

The songs in this drama are really nice. Some are happy-happy and others are fulfilled with deep feelings. This drama is much more funny than serious. It’s pretty nice.
