After watching My Tooth Your Love, I was so in the Taiwanese BL mood. This came highly recommended and once I got into it, I could see why. However, no matter how cute it was, I became bored and slightly confused toward the show’s back half.

It is a classic friends-to-lovers with some unrequited love thrown right in. Cheng Tse Shou and Fu Li Kung’s friendship was pretty cute with one being extroverted and the other introverted. It was a tried true dynamic that worked even better because of the chemistry between the leads. It wasn’t searing or off the charts but it was like a small ember of burn. Then I learned that the leads are together in real life, and things made more sense why things just seemed very natural between them. I found the humor at the beginning of them going on blind dates to be hilarious. They were so sabotaging and if I was any of those women, I would have thrown my drink in their faces too. But that’s kind of where the charm with the main couple ended. It was cute how they had the keychains that signified that they always thought of each other as the other’s other half. But there was a breakup thrown in that really didn’t feel needed. And even all the divorce stuff since they were divorce lawyers felt like an afterthought so I had no cares about it.

On the other hand, I was so invested in the secondary couple of the dry cleaner owner and the bartender. We got so many good tropes from them that I could have done with just a show about them. Kato Yuki was the best kind of simp when it came to single dad Jian Ying Ze. Yuki was all about pushing Jian Ying Ze boundaries and opening him up, I was obsessed. And they ended up becoming the cutest little family with Yuki and Jian Ying Ze’s daughter.

There were things I loved which included the heat from both couples and the happy little ending with a wedding. Things were wrapped up nicely, I just felt like it was a little stale by the time we got there. The fluff was good, and the angst was not.
