Okay, I never knew just how behind I was on my reviews so I am going to catch up as much as possible. I’m afraid, this is the end of the road for the lovely Easy Fortune, Happy Life. I am actually doing the last review on the last 7 episodes. I hope you enjoy, and excuse my bad timing!

Episode 11

So, Da Feng threw the ring into the pond, and she jumps in after it to find it (Ref Ep 10). During episode 11, I noticed just how much patience Fu An has with Da Feng, (searching for the ‘sincerity’ he throws away (Ref Ep 11)). You can see just how besotted she is with Da Feng, due to what he finds out in the previous episode of having 3 months left to live Da Feng is doing some repenting, but Jiang Zhen Zhen is clearly worried about her 80 billion which has now been flushed down the drain. Even if Zhen Zhen, won’t just kneel down to her feelings she has started to have for Yan Yang, you can tell there is a feeling there, but a leopard can never change his spots, unless he wants to. During this drama, I noticed how close Grandpa Wang Cai and Yan Yang actually are. Yet, Yan Yang is still falling for Jiang Zhen Zhen, but she has a hope and an attachment for Da Feng.

The whole family, are becoming more like a family. They are trying to get Fu An and Da Feng together (Ref Ep 11). They even go to such lengths of holding a surprise wedding for them, but he is not only scared of himself but for the future. You can tell that Wang Cai, is doing this to Da Feng to coax out his true feelings and the better side of him. “What will you do all alone after I die? Who will take care of you when you’re sick? Who will protect you if you get bullied by others? Who will hold your umbrella when it rains?” I think Da Feng’s feelings are confirmed, just by those words, and he finally opens his heart to everyone but he is still scared of what will happen to Xie Fu An.

Even with this knowledge, Fu An fights on for their love, which is very cute but cliche, but for this drama…who cares? Also, he finally says those three special words “Wo Ai Ni”. She climbs to the third floor, and whacks him over the head with the bottle?! (Ref Ep 11). Da Feng, has clearly changed for the better and he has told her 1/2 the truth, about what happened, I just wonder when the pasts bites him back in the ass. I like how Fu An uses Da Feng’s weakness against him, which makes me laugh. The village people on Fu Man Hill makes me smile, they bring a sense of warmth to the drama, even when the audience know at some point the drama has to turn sour to reach the climax.

The dresses; when Fu An and Zhen Zhen tries them on, I notice that the simple and less extravagant of the two, Fu An decides to wear is more attractive, because she is pure hearted, no matter how pretty Zhen Zhen’s dress is because she is sour the dress doesn’t look nice. I think even if Yan Yang knows what is really going on, he wants to teach Zhen Zhen that there is a value to a person even if they have money or if they haven’t.

Things are beginning to get complicated from here on out.

Episode 12

Da Feng’s character has completely changed, thus when I see Fu An and Da Feng together you can see their acting skills really show off to the audience. They look so relaxed and happy together, which then shows in the characters which is an added bonus.

I think the Village Chiefs gesture to Fu An for her wedding is really touching, but it puts Wang Cai and Da Feng on a guilt trip because they know more to the other story. I feel more pity for Wang Cai than any other character because he started the hate that his family developed, but also because he cheated Chun Xiang.

Even at this stage, Dong Jie and Da Feng are still competing, even though it is clear who has won. It’s still quite cute how courageous Dong Jie is (Ref Ep 12). When Fu An says about his parents and Da Feng, goes out to try and help her, in the place where he is showed the tape, his attitude just completely changed. It’s as if, he has to make everything perfect for Fu An, no matter what the consequence.

You can tell by the way Fu An and Da Feng act together, that their feelings are mutual, but they always say where a love is so pure, it is easy to be tainted. There is a fine line between love and hate, it is also not to hard to break love either. The family are changing and becoming more like a proper family, thanks to Fu An, not only that but Wang Cai has achieved his hope and dream, of them being together again and saving him and his family.

The photos of Da Feng and Fu An, is like a timeline of their love, which is so cute, each photo represented a happy memory for him. You can see how much happier he is, in love. Sadly, good things come to a head and Zhen Zhen rears her ugly head again, by blackmailing him on his wedding day. Nice way to spoil the day, she has turned into a complete and utter wreck and gone off the rails. I think she only said she wanted the 80 billion to Da Fengs face, but over time she actually fell in love with the man. Clearly she is suffering unrequited love, thus drowning her sorrows.

She wants him, but goes in the complete wrong way about it, she should have thought about pushing Da Feng into another womans arms before then she’d be in much less pain.

The past is about to come back and bite each and everyone of them in the ass. Oh Dear.

Episode 13

Zhen Zhen, I feel should admit defeat, and start thinking about her feelings for Yan Yang, to atleast let them prosper. I feel that with her attitude and sour personality it won’t get her anywhere. It’s as if, she will get what she wants but it will take a nose dive and her true colours will be shown. I really don’t like Zhen Zhen, and how she can string Yan Yang along. I hate how, Fu An is so lovely to her yet she is just cold and feels pure jealousy towards her, Zhen Zhen should be grateful Da Feng changed. Tackling Pi Dan, is actually a really shallow thing to do (Ref Ep 13).

I do really love Dong Jie’s character it’s just such a shame, his feelings are put to waste and that no one else attracts his attention. He’s so generous he gives up his chase for love and lets her be happy with Da Feng even though he doesn’t like him. He is like Fu An’s guardian angel, always looking out for her, the only sad thing is he has no one by his side and the only girl he truly likes has already had her heart counted for. Aww, he gets ill 😦 and Fu An helps him (Ref Ep 13). It must be horrible having the turmoil of unrequited love. I also feel sorry for what happened to his family 😦 I love his tattoo though, and the story behind it is so sweet, and how Fu An makes him see the optimism over the pessimistic side.

Fu An’s wedding dress, in my opinion is really stunning but that head piece they could have at least used a tiara or something (Ref Ep 13). Da Feng looks even more handsome now with his changed personality, Fu An really did bring the family together in the most weird way. During the ceremony, I really liked the wedding photo in the background. They really suit eachother. I just don’t understand why they had to ride a bicycle together? (Ref Ep 13). “The sky and the human world, is bridged by the rainbow”. When the Village Chief says about it being her grandma, I actually found that so sweet. I really like their theories and ideas for different things in this e.g. the Tung Flowers.

I feel sorry for Wang Cai, the most because I actually just want him to have what he has always wanted; a good and loving family. It just seems to keep slipping through his fingers, and the one he has to save the most is Da Feng since he is the most sensitive one out of the whole family unbelievably.

So, the climax is about to commence!

Episode 14

All the way through this episode, I noticed how much the chemistry has developed between Fu An and Da Feng. They honestly, look absolutely great together. Da Feng really only has eyes for Fu An, his nasty exterior and his attitude has taken a turn for the better. You feel really kind of anxious, because you know that Zhen Zhen wants to jam a spanner in the works. Haha, she made him those Kiwi faces again, seriously I don’t know who doesn’t love Xie Fu An (Ref Ep 14).

The whole family, absolutely adore Fu An, they enjoy watching Da Feng and Fu An’s love prosper, and find them as a sort of warmth to the family. They are like an old married couple 🙂 I feel like Wang Cai, is starting to get ill again (Ref Ep 14). He goes funny at the breakfast table, I actually think the next few episodes are going to be full of upset 😦 You can tell, on the other hand, the whole family care for one another so much more and none of them feel any anger or jealousy because Da Feng won the inheritance, they are more worried for Grandpa Wang Cai, not only that Wang Cai seems to be fearing something, e.g the past, zhen zhen. Sadly, Wang Cai gets ill and De Feng is once again falling into his black hole, he can’t hold on to the nicer person he is because the person he loves has walked away from him 😦

After years, they begin to dig up Dong Jie’s roots, that is a bit harsh and also will put him into a sense of shock. I think that Dong Jie, turns out to be the grandson of the company’s leader whom is an enemy of Ba Bao Tang. So therefore it is no wonder that Da Feng and Dong Jie are always rivals with each other, like love, career etc.

So, the climax begins, first of all I absolutely hate Zhen Zhen with a passion, she really cannot let things lie. Fair enough it wouldn’t be a drama without it. I feel really sorry for Fu An, but as they say, what goes around comes around. I do think it isn’t fair how they keep calling the family murderers, because they didn’t physically murder her grandma, it was a matter of coincidence. I know that Zhen Zhen, used Pi Dan to her advantage which I think is cruel, but it just makes me irritated by Pi Dan.

I really hope Da Feng can prove his love and sincerity to Fu An, because you can tell that he absolutely adores Fu An, and I really hope he can pick himself up and that he doesn’t completely fall back into his dark hole of hate that he once had, with no light to get out of. I know, this sounds strange but fair enough (Ref Ep 14) Dong Jie and Fu An had a cute scene together, I still prefer them better as friends because to me Dong Jie really is just like a guardian angel that can’t see the fine line between love like a sibling and love of another league.

Lets all wait and see to how Da Feng and his family redeems themselves. There were the definite good times where he did prove his love. She just needs to think about it and stop being so stubborn. Like I said, he never knew it would lead to her grandma’s death! They did, admittedly deceive her in the beginning, but at the end of the day due to her the whole family changed, and Da Feng was the one that changed the most for her and because of her. Luckily, even if Dong Jie for a brief period of time gets to be with Fu An. We all know that love conquers all.

Episode 15

I think Zhen Zhen is really shallow considering, she does all of this thinking she is getting what she wants, turns out she is the one that is the most vulnerable and will lose everything. It’s kind of scary just how far you’ll go for love and for money, for Zhen Zhen they were both there in the palm of her hand until Fu An came along and changed everything. Zhen Zhen is prone to jealousy, but I still think she started it by allowing Da Feng to get pushed into the arms of the ‘enemy’ when Da Feng hadn’t changed. I feel really sorry for Yan Yang, he actually gave Zhen Zhen the opportunity to change and tried to show her, that she had a value without money that she wasn’t a ‘loser’. All he got was the short end of the stick 😦

I feel sorry for Dong Jie, because the more he finds out about his past, the more painful it is and yet he takes on Fu An’s pain and his own and still pushes on with a straight and doesn’t show his hurt inside. He finds out his grandfather is the enemy of Ba Bao Tang, yet I find it really harsh, even if he has never gotten to know the old man, the old man regrets his past, but Dong Jie just can’t let go. That photo he sees is so…sad 😦 (Ref Ep 15).

In a way, I do feel really sorry for Da Feng, because he is falling faster and faster back to who he was, and he is just embracing it. He in a sense holds the responsibility because of his attitude problems; and they shouldn’t have kept something like that from Fu An, because her grandma was really special and important to her. She, in a sense deserved to know the truth. I think Da Feng, is plotting revenge against Zhen Zhen, because of all of this. Maybe he is trying to set things straight to prove his sincerity and that he really is a changed person, he is trying to do that by going back to the beginning and righting all his wrongs.

I think Da Feng, is being really nice to Zhen Zhen, builds up her hopes and then to leave her with nothing, to show her how she felt. I know that she has rights and feelings too but she really did bring this whole escapade onto herself. You can tell just how lonely he really is, he’s practically lost everything. I’m so glad, Yan Yang actually takes the initiative and talks to Fu An, because she seems to listen to Yan Yang (Ref Ep 15). You can tell, she clearly still loves Da Feng, I just think she doesn’t know what to do, or where to go now. She hasn’t got a clear head at all or any clue with which direction to turn, she wants some kind of sign.

Lets hope things begin to take a turn for a change, in the next episode.

Episode 16

Zhen Zhen, really is shallow, but I think Da Feng is definitely up to something. I don’t know what Da Feng is up to, I think he doesn’t know what to do just as much as Fu An. He has revenge on his mind but seems to be taking it out on everyone else, including Fu An (Ref Ep 16) and it’s hurting her a lot. When he see’s Fu An though (Ref Ep 15) looks so tortured and mortified, it actually sort of gives a look in to what he’s really thinking. I think he’ll manage to do the good thing in the end. As you can see, both Fu An and Da Feng are having a hard time keeping everything together. Da Feng, cannot reveal anything or else his plan of revenge takes a nose dive, and Fu An doesn’t know what Da Feng is up to so she can’t trust him.

I notice, that Da Feng isn’t as handsome as he was with Fu An. His facial expressions are now just frowns and his eyes look evil, he looks more tortured than happy to be in his situation. When he was with Fu An, he was happy, his facial expressions were light and so much brighter. He’s being mean, to make push her away, he feels he is no longer worthy of her love, he’d prefer to live without her if he can’t have what he had before 😦 Even when they are not together, their chemistry is so real, whereas even now I still think that the chemistry between Fu An and Dong Jie, is only friend like.

I think Dong Jie, is beginning to realize that there is no other space in Fu An’s heart, apart from the hole that only Da Feng can refill, so all he can do is be her guardian angel, let her make her mistakes even with the advice he gives her and then stand by to pick up the pieces.

I also notice, that the Yan family, are so much more caring after Fu An left. They actually care more for Grandpa Wang Cai, than for the 80 billion. Their family warmth now connects them together, they care for one another like a family warmth should be. I really hope that they can do something to help Fu An and Da Feng, be together and start a fresh once again.

All the way through this episode, you get that feeling that something is about to happen, and fortunately it really did. Zhen Zhen got what she deserved. I hate her smug face (Ref Ep 16). Even if, she’s going to lose it all, she started it and maybe, just maybe she’ll think about her attitude and personality and change in the future. And…Da Feng resigns! Zhen Zhen, loses everything, Da Feng comes clean about his feelings. I actually cried for him 😦 Well, Zhen Zhen got what she deserves, at least. Wow, I love the twist to the drama. Auntie and Uncle get to run Ba Bao Tang! I love those two!!! (Ref Ep 16). I must admit, I love Yan Yang, even now he is persistent and so caring towards her, even now he is trying 😦 Even if she doesn’t deserve it.

Omg, that house! He builds it for her, he rebuilds her grandmas old house, now if that’s not sincerity I don’t know what is, maybe now Fu An can see clearly Da Feng’s feelings shine through. Wow, Da Feng really has done well, he remembered everything about Fu An’s house, he has now fully wiped the slate clean, and now to start again, he’s going after Fu An’s grandmas killers. He’s really trying to do what Fu An wants.

Even now, Dong Jie is starting to change around his grandpa, and also come to terms with his past. I like how he’s piecing things back together again and start to take everything bit by bit. I hope Dong Jie, can finally start to live a smooth and peaceful life.

Well, I cannot wait until the final episode, that brings Da Feng and Fu An back together again!

Episode 17

The final episode begins. I actually have to say, I’m proud of Da Feng, for stopping himself from falling into his pit of darkness whilst he had the chance. He actually did everything to start again, and wipe the slate clean. He succeeded in getting the killers of Chun Xiang. I bet it came as a shock to both of them when they saw eachother (Ref Ep 17) with Fu An in the back of the van. Da Feng got shot 😦 but Fu An obviously takes care of him. It must be so hard for the both of them to be together like that after all that was said and done.

The family, have completely changed, they actually enjoy one anothers company. They clearly adore Fu An and Pi Dan for bringing the happiness into their lives and saving them from being cruel people. I like their little reunion they had together, and all the family try so hard to get them back together, Fu An wants it just as much as Da Feng. When he goes after her on crutches to ask her to come back (Ref Ep 17) is so cute and touching. Yet, once again Dong Jie gets the heartbreak. This always happens in romance dramas, the nicer one doesn’t get the girl.

And, then it moves on into the future. Haha, personally I think Auntie and Uncle Yan are great at running Ba Bao Tang, and they still have the knack to make me laugh. Grandpa Wang Cai is off gallivanting enjoying his retirement with all sorts of activities, but the most touching scene was when he went to finally visit Chun Xiang to commemorate her. That was so sweet, I really have a new found respect for Wang Cai.

Yan Yang, goes to see Zhen Zhen, I truly think that Zhen Zhen has changed. She’s re-evaluated everything, and maybe for once realizes that there was something or a connection between her and Yan Yang, and maybe they can solve it and come together, without lies and deceit this time around just like Da Feng and Fu An.

I find it cute how Dong Jie, has also taken over his grandfathers business and learning medicine, he and Fu An are now clearly just like brother and sister and he is also living a peaceful and content life, which makes me happy for him because he no longer has to live in turmoil. Also, it looks like love is prospering for him, which I am happy. Maybe it’s his turn to find love.

And the greatest news of all, Fu An and Da Feng, are happy together, they are a family. The best news is about the scan he reveals to her, so now they really can start building their own family together. It really is a happy ever after, but I love how it comes back to the Tung Flower and they plant their own…

Overall, I find the acting superb! Blue Lan as Da Feng was able to switch his personalities for his character role, from a cold and tormented young man at heart from his past experiences and then into a loving and caring person who found love and learns how to treasure it with great care. He also experiences jealousy, hate, guilt, remorse and other feelings that he seemed to have forgotten when he is around Fu An, this changes him as a person. Chen Qiao En who played Fu An, was terrific, she really could pull off the emotional feelings in the serious scenes and also create a happy atmosphere where it was needed. Both of these main characters meshed well perfectly, and they were a joy to watch.

The whole Yan family, were just an extra bonus. I enjoyed watching their childish, immature ways eventually mature into level headed thinking adults, with thanks to Fu An. Zhen Zhen, of course the good always conquers evil and she got her comeuppance. Of course, a very happy ending, as per usual for a romance/comedy taiwanese drama. The love triangles were very cliche, as I would expect, but the happy moments gave off a warm fuzzy feeling. Which the drama should do for it’s audience.

I don’t know how I did this final review, and how you guys take to it, because I decided to seperate the episodes so the viewers could see my notes for each episode without getting confused. I have finally finished this and sorry about the time it took me. I will continue to review Autumn’s Concerto, Momo Love, Sound of Colours. I will be reviewing a new one though with Rainie Yang and Alan Luo in which is: Hi, My Sweetheart. Please wait around. Black & White is currently on hold as you all know, but I will get back to it soon.
