StrawBan’s Review:

80%

This was one of the first dramas of Chen Qiao En I’ve watched! Her acting is also pretty good in here, but it obviously evolved and improved throughout the years. I kind of like the picture of her in here. It is a pretty epic story, indeed, but oh well. Life as a rich person is definitely not easy in dramas! I wonder if it’s like this in real life too. If it is … oh boy, poor poor them.

In here, she’s like the innocent child who has yet to come in contact with the outside world. She was protected from society since she was small, but when her father decides to leave the country, she finds herself moneyless and of course, she goes into a sort of depression. To be honest, her depression in my opinion lasted kind of long. Her character is really strong here, although it might not seem like it at first. I like how Jason Hsu is in here too. His acting is so refreshing! I don’t even know why.

THE SUPPORTING CHARACTERS ARE FREAKING ANNOYING! Especially that woman. Oh gooood. She is SO asking for a beating! To think that people change so much only because of money. What is our world turning into? Well, drama world … okay nevermind, I think it has always been like this in dramas haha.

The music is okay I guess, nothing too amazing about it. The songs by 7 Flowers do make me feel pretty princess-like. It sometimes has this soft and calming melodies. Their voices are really soothing too! Chen Qiao En is part of the group too! I did NOT know this before.

The ending was … I didn’t really like it. It seems too rushed and not enough. For the length of the drama, they could’ve at least explained some more or make it less in your face.
