When I first started the drama, I did not expect this at all. This is completely an out-of-ordinary drama plot. Actually, the drama consists of 10 short stories that happens in a school. They all, in some ways, follow each other, but the main link is the death girl, Du. She needed rocks to repair the bridge between life and death. Therefore, every student who comes near that special rock and are living a hard life becomes suicidal.
The stories consists of a lot of controversial issues. There were teacher-student relationships, lesbian/transsexual issues, prostitution, parents neglect, sexually harassment, pregnancy, homosexuals and prejudices, bullies and a lot more.
Even if the main characters were Du and Shen Qi, their presences were rare. At a certain point, I just thought that they were here because they had to. However, it ended up being that they did have a relationship… And I have to admit that it was quite weird. I would never ever watch a drama like this again. I do feel that one of the purpose of the drama was to “teach” the young viewers some life issues, but I think that I did not need that. It is very easy to lose interest, especially for a person who is not a crazy fan of Aaron.
