I think it’s pretty obvious how I operate by now.. If I like you, I obsessively watch everything that you’re in until I have watched it all. I really really really like Sun Qian y’all.. I think she is so natural in her acting, gorgeous to boot and so damn funny. I am rooting for you in that actor variety queen! The first scene I saw by you was excellent!
Now onto the drama… Guys listen… This drama was cute to boot. I love dramas that make me feel warm inside with a strong sense of family and mature adults who can communicate to work through their issues. When I started this drama it reminded me of My Love Enlighten Me because of the way the episodes were structured as well as the overall vibe. I enjoyed this plot a lot even though it certainly wasn’t what I initially had expected it to be. I went into this expecting more of romance, but left with a story of a group of young people working hard to achieve their dreams and sorting through the missed connections that they had. By the time the company went on their field trip, I felt like it was my company retreat! Hahah.
I enjoyed Sun Qian’s portrayal of Lu Jia so much and like in all honesty, this girl does not miss! Lu Jia was bold, sweet and a girl after my own heart. I loved that she stood with her principles and knew what she wanted. I also really liked Xu Jia Xu because he wasn’t a broody male lead, even if he was a little petty. I was pleasantly surprised that they didn’t have this huge misunderstanding of a breakup, and that they squashed all their misunderstandings or fights as a couple within the same episode or in the following episode. I also enjoyed the supporting characters a lot and Janice was the woman that I thought I would be when in college dreaming about my career. Hahah. I am glad that her and Ang Yang obviously got together in the end cause duh.
The only reason this drama didn’t get a higher rating from me is because I wished we had more solidly romantic moments. I also swayed a little at the end because I thought that Song Juxi and Jia would have made a good couple. SUE ME. IDC. Hahah. I still would recommend this for people to watch! I definitely enjoyed it.
Rewatch Value: 8/10
