Okay, what I’m planning on doing with this drama is splitting it into two sections, not two by two episodes, but bigger chunks. I have so far completed three episodes of reviews on this drama, and I will do another five or more in the next chunk, rather than go into detail I will give in brackets references on the episodes I talk about and briefly talk on it so that you don’t have too many spoilers as I can indeed get carried away with myself and so then you also know what episodes I’m speaking of and in sense look forward to that certain episode and that scene, without too much knowing. So, on we go…

The beginning of this drama was a bit confusing, as it jumped straight in without a kind of background behind anything as before some dramas actually do have the first part of the starting episode with actually getting to know each character individually THEN they stumble into eachother, where as this one started off with both of them clashing in the first part of the drama I’d say. I’d grasped that the 80 year old grandad was taken to hospital after an accident and the rest of the family are so greedy and heartless after their way of upbringing, which can only really..be blamed upon himself. Now they want the inheritance of a huge company and either of the sons being the successor of this huge company.

The dramas opening, I liked – Chen Qiao En (Joe Chen) has got a lot prettier I think and Blue Lan…is just yummy. The acting is satisfying so far it’s just they need to get into the shoes of their characters a little bit more to really hit it off, Blue’s acting sets off really well, the cold demeanor, his appearance and how he presents himself is very convincing and how he acts and plays his part very well for a newish actor. The parents of Yan Yang (the characters) I find are already irritating me, their movements, their lines and the ways they present themselves are so blatantly over the top that it looks as though their acting is forced, but it is amusing in that respect.

I can’t believe whilst at the hospital (referring to Ep 1) the grandfather is in there almost on his death bed, and can hear the family outside, being so greedy and wanted his inheritance over caring for a family member that is so close to death, I think that’s really shameful. I think it’s really nice and caring of Fu An, to go in there and help the grandfather with her herbal medicines as she thinks it’s cold hearted and that no one deserves to die. In the beginning there is also a vague link between the older generation of characters, which seems quite interesting, as whilst she is helping him (referring to Ep 1) the memory of Chun Xiang is a spitting image of Fu An, which is Pi Dan and Fu An’s grandmother. I find the past between the two interesting in a way. I love how courageous she is for standing up to the family, not caring about the social status of the family. At least there is an intriguing story with a base to work with. I think it’s nice of the old man, he seems rather cheerful towards Fu An, and how he’s bent on repaying a debt to Chun Xiang, I understand the link between the two a little better now, just ironic how they’re both splitting images of the two main characters, probably to make it seem as though the past is repeating itself. Anthony (the dog) is so cute, and Fu An’s brother Pi Dan awww chubby and cute :L Chun Xiang the grandmother is also the grandmother from Fated to Love You. Aww she has cancer 😦 I think thats really harsh for such a poor family, though in a way it’s kind of predictable, yet very intriguing.

I find it so lovely of Fu An, to be keeping the bell that Wang Cai gave to Chun Xiang, to preserve his memory for her grandma. The kiss in the memory is cute I think πŸ™‚ and I love the backing song :O I can’t believe that one of the memories of Wang Cai; the watch she wants to pawn, but I think Chun Xiang realizes it’s as though the watch is part of her so it’d be too hard to sell, and Fu An is so optimistic, I had hoped they’d meet each other before she was overcome by the cancer. They way she had raised Fu An and Pi Dan, I thought was really good, I loved her teachings and with nothing she raised them to realize they had everything; a family and love. The link between the two grandparents becomes a lot clearer when you understand the grandpas side, and I can’t believe what he did to Chun Xiang, how he used her for his own personal gain, what an ass to play with a young females emotions. At least he’s beginning to repent for the wrong he did by her, but I can’t get over that his own daughter wants to see the back of him, and her husband too – he’s also the uncle from My Lucky Star!

Eugh, Da Feng’s girlfriend is such a cow, and a total gold digger, what’s even weirder is he knows it just as much as she does. What an odd but evil pair, but he can definitely kiss. Oh god, I can’t believe his girlfriend told that poor lottery man, that she’s going to have that money…seriously she thinks so much of herself.Da Feng’s girlfriend, really just loves making everything worse, she’s a conniving cow and obsessed with money. She seems like she just can’t let go of something but she’s the sort that full of evil, deceit and revenge. Haha, it’s funny when Fu An and Da Feng notice each other and I love the fact he’s completely clueless about her. Both of the actors can play their characters really well and I’ve become interested by the chemistry and the acting itself is of good quality, yet a bit more heart into it and it will be a superb drama. Haha I do love the prank she pulls though (referring to Ep 1) just ironic how they both end up in the mud pool. The humor in this drama has definitely kept me amused though, I find it funny how she babbles about everything because she’s embarrassed. I can’t believe Da Feng is such a spoil sport, whilst watching this though I still wondered how they’d get themselves out of that mud pool. Haha, he swears and gets some kind of gunge in his mouth eughhh. This is one reason why I love Romantic/Comedy dramas with the love/hate relationship between the two main characters. :O He kisses her! Oh my days πŸ˜‰ Now that is what I call a kiss.

Omg, for that stupid ginseng they literally break in and cause a ruckus, I find it so sweet when Pi Dan and Anthony try to stop it, but the fire…I can’t believe it that is so cruel and that family definitely don’t deserve that. Fu An finally gets pulled out of that mud pool and then gets the bad news that fully changes her lifes direction. I was amazed that Da Feng actually ran after her, and holds her back to prevent her hurting herself, I must admit that Qiao En could really act, she has got real potential. I actually felt sorry for Da Feng because it was giving him recurring memories from his own past. He was so kind hearted but was turned sour 😦 I actually cried for her grandma, dear of her 😦 It looks like, Da Feng actually doesn’t want to leave her, and he realizes it is all his fault, but in all honesty I blame his bitch of a girlfriend. He actually goes over to her, but it’s still again ironic; both like grandfather like grandson give away their watches just under different circumstances.

She actually whilst in the hospital, realizes her grandmother had cancer, that must be horrible and an awful shock, poor Fu An and Pi Dan 😦 I do love the grandma’s letter though and it made me cry again 😦 It’s so sad and bittersweet. This episode is such a sad one 😦 At least the grandpa can think for his actions and Da Feng for that matter, all of that money and someones life in exchange for some bark. At least he realizes it was his doing and that he was in some part responsible; all for inheritance and succession of the company. One thing, from the past of the two grandparents I do like, is the story behind the tung flowers, it’s so lovely and romantic. In a way I do feel sorry for the grandpa, yet he’s not very loving or caring towards his grandchildren using the word ‘wolves’ to describe them.Β  Oo, the bike repair guy :L is the butler from Romantic Princess, and GINO is the Lawyer?!

The grandpa’s family are such pretenders, I actually have a pet hate for fakers, Yan Yang though actually seems to care. yet the company’s inheritor was a huge bombshell to drop on the family and on recorded by press :L such priceless expressions! I love the fact the name is wrong; it’s Xie Fu An not Xie Hu Lan, and it’s right under their noses as to who it is, well more Da Feng’s because he’s already met her and become acquainted to her and still it doesn’t click to him. The fact they gave the fake photo (referring to Ep 2) is just so funny.

Roy Qiu finally appears (referring to Ep 3) and he plays Han Dong Jie. I can’t believe Da Feng would actually go to all of those lengths for that 80 billion not caring who he stands on in order to get it. The first appearance of Dong Jie, is when being ganged up on by a mob, what a cool way to make your entrance. I still love how the arrogant and mean guy is the lead guy and this personality wins over the lead female that is kind hearted and wouldn’t hurt a fly and the real good guys of the drama who are always there for the lead female to cry on and to help her through the hard times don’t even get the chance with her, that’s why I love these dramas, no matter how predictable it’s fun to watch in what weird and wonderful way they make the same basic storyline into something completely it’s own. I love Dong Jie’s strong will and his blunt, direct personality (he is the guy from Invincible Shan Bao Mei). I like how their friendship develops straight away, I love when she treats his cut he yells with such emphasis I couldn’t stop laughing (referring to Ep 3) even with his personality he has a very kind and pure heart as does she so it’s a sure fire friendship. I find it ironic how she ‘accidentally’ leaves the posters and the tin box there. omg… I love his tattoo too!

I couldn’t stop laughing when I saw Ah Bao with that mark slap bang between his eyes, I do like though how there are two stories in this drama involving inheritance on two different scales, and…a seppuku..is a bit drastic? Also, a bit harsh calling your own child a mistake; referring to Ah Bao and how he favorites Dong Jie over Ah Bao…to be honest no wonder Ah Bao is like he is.It’s sweet that Dong Jie holds his own burdens, but going through her private belongings is a bit strange and rude as well in order to find her to return a debt due to the rules of the company. Haha, I love how he tries so hard to be able to do something in return for Fu An, and he can cook, Fu An watches him like an amazed child (referring Ep 3)Β  and he’s a proper dabb hand at the most random things ever, and (referring Ep 3) he says Ah Jie Shi…isn’t that like a korean?

Xie Pi Dan gets a fever 😦 and the only person she knows she can try to contact is none other that Da Feng. I don’t get Da Feng and his girlfriend because they hardly even love eachother and he even knows exactly why she is with him, it’s just such a weird relationship, but she has a past of her own but she is so immature about it as she can’t let it go and move on in her life instead she became a heartless and money driven fool.

One thing I do notice is that Da Feng is very hard skinned but the truth is he has a soft heart that he holds huge walls up to because of how his grandfather treated him. Even at a push, in the end he does help Fu An, because the taxi guy frames him ahhahaha, but at least he’s honest about himself. All for the sakes of reputation he helps her, which I guess isn’t all bad, to be honest basically, he’s one difficult person to get along with, but he does do something good as he stays when she rushes out to get the tin box and tries to help Pi Dan . One thing I thought funny though is the theory about Fu An and Hu Lan being..the same hit him, and the fact that it’s true and all for the sake of a photo he had as proof from two people he doesn’t even know stops him from realizing. I think it’s sweet of Fu An to want to try and be some kind of family for Da Feng, for such a mean guy that’s a proper kind thing to do towards him. I guess this is where he begins to change, by the looks of the preview he gets touched by their sincerity and kindness which is a different feeling from his family’s coldness.

Sorry, this was late and also very long. This is the start of my review, they will be a lot shorter in the next lot as I packed way too much information in here but due to it being the start of a new drama it always does have a lot of information in to set the scene, so the next reviews won’t be as jam packed and have better layouts. Watch out for the next review of Easy Fortune, Happy Life!
