You know how in my review of Unchained Love, I stated that it was okay to be biased and that’s why I gave it 7 stars?! This drama is the perfect example of why honesty while reviewing is the best policy. There ain’t no mother fucking way the average rating of this drama is 8.5 on MDL and a 9.6 on Viki. AIN’T NO FUCKING WAY.
This story and it’s characters were stupid. First of all, she’s a law intern but somehow seem to being doing stuff way outside her pay grade and he was quite literally the most available neurosurgeon I have ever seen. THIS MAN STAY NOT AT WORK. I know I shouldn’t ask for realism because this is a romance drama but come on.. it ain’t no damn fantasy! Speaking of romance, you know I love a good man simp but it didn’t work here. I heavily disliked how oblivious she was about his feelings. Actually, to keep it 100, after she decided she would step away from liking him or whatever cause of the other girl begging her to ‘not get in between the two of them’, I literally rolled my eyes. At that point I was over this drama and no amount of kissing was making up for it. Now, we know that childhood friends to lovers stories are quite common and very often the backbone to all these Asian dramas. Now, for the life of me I couldn’t understand why he knew it was her but she didn’t know it was him. I was like did this bitch have a head injury or something? Was it amnesia? Was it trauma from losing her dad? Nope nope. It was simply because he was fat and she didn’t even know his name. NONSENSE. Also, I disliked the second couple as well. WOE BE UNTO ME AND MY RICH PEOPLE PROBLEMS. Foh.
As far as acting goes, Idk man, I really couldn’t even pay attention to any of the characters to decide if they were giving apt performances. I just kept getting distracted by the height difference. There were scenes that were shot from a zoomed out lens and it genuinely resembled a father and his daughter. I just couldn’t.
So yeah, didn’t like much of the story, nor the characters nor the romance and to see that this had higher ratings than Way Back Into Love felt quite criminal and that was why we (Nat and myself) immediately decided to watch that drama WHICH IS WAY BETTER. Legit, when we completed the last episode of the drama, we went and watched episode one of Way Back Into Love and already that had way more story than the 15 episodes of My Little Happiness that we didn’t skip through (yeah after a point it was 2x speed and jump to the end where we didn’t feel as if we missed anything). Therefore, I am imploring drama watchers to just be honest.. Say that you shipped them in Put Your Head On My Shoulder or that you have wanted them together since that drama or something but do not say this is a 10/10 perfect drama because yall know you are lying. I decided to rate this lower than I typically would simply because I think it is overrated as is. Until next time! xx
Rewatch Value: 7/10
