Essbee’s opinion


That’s a weird story actually. At the beginning, it sounds quite typical… A poor boy bullied by some classmate, and then saved by a beautiful girl. However, story doesn’t turn out as the audience expects. Also, I like how this drama is human, with a lot of moral. Also, it’s been a while I’ve seen this drama, there are many details that I don’t remember too well. However, I could still present roughly the characters…

The lead actor is like a cute boy that would be like my neighbor. He’s so nice and innocent and… so rich… The girl who saved him is pretty, but her attitude was too “I’m miss perfect and I love my dad.” Anyways, I didn’t like her that much, especially when she ignored Shi Zhi because of their parents’ relationship. And then, Shi Shi is the bad girl but she’s really cool. I liked her transformation which wasn’t too harsh and unrealistic.

The OST is one of the hardest to find, but the songs are really nice. It’s a very joyous drama, easily enjoyable…
