Essbee’s Opinion:

I once upon a time heard that this drama was awesome. It’s a MUST for every drama lovers. That’s why I… started it. However, I thought that the girl couldn’t talk, so it was boring. The story was too sad, so that was very annoying. And the final was touching for some people, but I totally hated it. So it seems that, in conclusion, I hated this drama for a long time.

However, I couldn’t believe that I forgot all the great moments of this drama. The couple is actually really cute. The lead actress is Korean and she doesn’t have to speak Chinese since she’s “mute”. And so, she’s talking in sign language or writing on paper. Anyways, I like her acting. She’s pretty and I believed that she really couldn’t speak. Then, Vic Zhou is very… admirable. I didn’t like him at first, but I got to like him more and more. His acting skills could not be doubted. When he was sad, suffering from his pain, and happy to be with his love, we could all feel these feelings.

The supporting cast was great also. Megan Lai was very young, but she still handled really well her role. She was not the woman we hated, but it’s also quite sad how she was rejected. Her singing is really good, and I really loved her song in this drama. Andy Hui is Cantonese and when he speaks Mandarin, he has a big accent. It felt awkward, but he’s a Cantonese speaker, so we can’t do anything about it… And finally, KingOne is great as usual. It’s really sad how he’s actings are great, but never played as a lead character in a good drama…

So, the story itself was good. Most people said it was the most dramatic drama they’ve ever seen. I found it sad, but not THAT intense. It’s been actually a long time I have seen this drama, but I remembered that there are situations I just loved and others I just hated. The music is really nice. I LOVE Vic Zhou’s Familiar Gentleness and Harlem Yu’s Silent. And if you watch that drama, you will definitely recognize: Try to remember the kind of September when life was slow and oh, so mellow…
