Pretty cool !
First of all, the description is pretty bad. When I read it I didn’t know what kind of drama it was going to be although I had an idea. So to make things clear, it’s mainly romance and not the funny type Koreans always make.
Chen HaiJie is the nice and dense country guy whereas He TingYu is the genius with bad personality. There’s 2 girls : Lan DieFei and Ito Seiko (aka Alice). At the beginning of the drama, Chen HaiJie meets Alice and they both fall madly in love, but the girl suddenly disappear, leaving only a note saying she’ll definitely come find him when she gets the chance. The ‘real’ story begins a year later (i think, I don’t remember…). Lan Die Fei gets a job as He TingYu’s assistant, the musician she always admired, and finds out that he’s a total jerk. She meets Chen HaiJie (I won’t tell how of course :O) and falls for him (nice guyyyy). At the same time, He TingYu also falls for Lan DieFei but knows that she already likes the other guy. Beside this love triangle, we have Alice, who came back in Taipei this time as Seiko, searching for her mother, obviously with suspicious ulterior motives. So to make things short, you’ve got the love triangle on one hand, and the mystery surrounding Alice on the other hand.
Now in my opinion, it’s certainly not the best drama that I have ever watched. BUT it’s still good enough for me to keep watching it and look forward to the next episode. Some parts reminds me of In Time With You with the sudden confusing dream world thing.
I really like the 2 male characters. They know what they want and although one dreams too much and the other is a kid who bullies the girl he likes, I’d say they’re pretty cool. Alice is also a good character as she’s got a lot more problems than the others and has to face lots of dilemmas. And let’s say it’s fun to hear some japanese in the middle of a sentence haha. As for DieFei, she’s the ordinary girl who was always overshadowed by the perfect big sis, not really involved in the whole Alice thing but I’m looking forward to her development as she’ll finally do something special (watch the drama to find out hehe !).
Anyway, it’d be a shame not to try this drama. So please check it out ! :D
