Just to let everyone know, I am back! I can finally settle down and watch a bulk of dramas, but I am also in the midst of my exams, but I have got plenty of times to quench my drama need, and yours! So, I have decided to review Personal Preferance, simply because it has Lee Min Ho as Jeon Jin Ho the male lead! Along with Son Ye Jin as Park Kae In the female lead! I love Lee Min Ho, yet I have not seen any dramas with Son Ye Jin, so I will enjoy and wait to see how she acts and also the chemistry between the two main characters, and with mixed chemistry with everyone else!

Just as I promised, Autumn’s Concerto finale! I will do as much as I can before I have to have my final exams coming up. Perfect Girl Evolution is not going to be far behind and I will be reviewing Personal Preferance just to let you all know, I will post a category for it, so keep your eyes pealed, I’ll be letting you know actors etc. Which you probably all know! So, let’s get started!

Just watching the run down of the previous episode, makes me feel so pitiful to Tuo Ye, and the fact no matter how hard he tries he can’t have Mu Cheng. I’m glad he gets out of jail th0ugh (Ref Ep 16). What’s worse is the hurt he has to go through when Mu Cheng admits herself and Guang Xi got married. Tuo Ye really doesn’t have any luck with Mu Cheng, or his feelings for her either. I n a way, I can understand Mu Cheng’s feelings, she wants a family and she has Xiao Le as a priority and she has to put him first, so she has to think of his needs and wants but not her own. Though you can tell, that what she really wants is for Guang Xi to know what really happened. Guang Xi is in his own mess at the moment, and he’s confused as he doesn’t know most of the story from 6 years ago, and he is planning and making plans to what he thinks he knows. The way he looks at her even 6 years on, it’s obvious he still loves her, but he won’t let himself get hurt again, so he is rude, hostile and cold to her. Only in the precense of Xiao Le is he even remotely nice to Mu Cheng.

I don’t like how Grandma Zhang is so heartless, just because she thought she had been playing safe all this time, and keeping the past from Guang Xi, now he remembers she knows that she has done wrong and made trouble so takes it out on Mu Cheng and Xiao Le, the two who were the most unfortunate in the whole experience. All she wanted was the perfect life, well all I can say is karma definitely comes back. I think she should definitely regret every action she took, because she did most of it out of selfishness.

As the series continues, she finally warms to Xiao Le because I think she realizes that she needs a family around her and that she can have happiness even with the things she regrets and the mistakes she makes. I love how Xiao Le budges up to her on the park bench (Ref Ep 17). I think she has found a little piece of happiness after so long. Like when she cares for him and they go to the beach to do Xiao Le’s school assignment (Ref Ep 18) you can see her good and happy side.

It looks like Tuo Ye is in a way moving on, but into a very sticky situation, since he is trying to save Chi Xin. I actuyally see a potential love relationship for Chi Xin and Tuo Ye. I really feel for Chi Xin, she always seems to get the bad luck. She got traded for a hen and she guarded the man she loves without him even knowing, and she quietly hid her feelings. He actually gets injured (Ref Ep 17). I really feel sorry for Chi Xin and Tuo Ye 😦 Oh dear Guang Xi, entered the room at the wrong time, so now he feels jealous of Tuo Ye, I think he should have asked what was going on, but it wouldn’t be a drama without some…well drama!

Wow, I can’t believe the situation Tuo Ye gets himself into, he helps to save Chi Xin, but she obviously in such a distraught state that she wants to stop the shouting and screaming so she murders Fang Ge (Rep Ep 19). Which leaves the both of them in a very dangerous state because obviously unless they can get themselves and alibi, they have to go to prison for committing a crime. I’m so glad that Guang Xi is going to help defend Tuo Ye. I can’t believe he put himself forward willingly, but it shows that there is hope for Chi Xin and Tuo Ye!

I love how Mu Cheng and Guang Xi are trying so hard to show that they don’t care for eachother and that they no longer have feelings for one another, yet it is so blatent to everyone else around them except themselves that they still love and cherish eachother. Mu Cheng is more clear in her feelings because she won’t deny it and she still tries to help and care for Guang Xi but he tries to save face a lot of the time.

I like how Mu Cheng goes and visits the suicidal girl, because she is so caring to everyone she actually helps the suicidal girl move forward (Ref Ep 17). She’s doing this to try and help Guang Xi, and to try and make the girl see that Guang Xi had lost his way and that he is still the same person she once knew and he really was sorry for helping Li Wang Cai win when he was guilty.

Poor Mu Cheng always being misunderstood, she tries so hard for others and tries to do it all by herself, and no one can see that. Since Guang Xi seems bent on revenge he can’t see underneath. I hate it when people try to destroy Guang Xi and Mu Cheng’s little ounce of happiness they rarely get, and they’re always on the rocks as it is. I have never seen Mu Cheng jealous before, and you can tell Guang Xi is happy because it makes him feel wanted and reassures him of how she feels for him. I hate how much Guang Xi misunderstands Mu Cheng, he can’t even relate to or understand her, he is acting like a spoilt and jealous, immature man when he makes her choose again like that (Ref Ep 19). Only his mother can fully understand because she in a way was in that situation, and she’s finally realized that what she did 6 years ago was wrong. I also admire that she says sorry to Mu Cheng, and she is finally building bridges with her, things are finally being patched together (Ref Ep 20).

I actually had to cry for Chi Xin, she finally recovered her memory and even admitted it to the court, so Tuo Ye got let off and Chi Xin didn’t have the court come down hard on her due to her condition. I love the fact Tuo Ye cleared up the last of Guang Xi’s arguments and also his thoughts on him and Mu Cheng, he admits the truth from what happened 6 years ago (Ref Ep 20).  I also like how Guang Xi learns about his father and realizes his mother is not as bad as she thought.

I think that episode 20, is when the truth comes out and things take a drastic turn for the final episode. I think Guang Xi finally realizes his actions to Mu Cheng, without discovering the truth first was horrible but to secure her feelings for him once again he obviously wants to do something. He clearly doesn’t want to let her go, but the thing he realizes is that if she really does not feel anything for him anymore, he cannot force her. I love how much chemistry comes out in the actors throughout the film, they are so well mixed and they act really well as a whole. I am so impressed that they have managed to keep it up the whole way through, in each and every episode. So, everything is coming together for the final episode. I can’t believe Guang Xi (Ref Ep 20). Yet, no drama is ever left on a cliffhanger, neither are most romances such as this a sad ending!

I love the final episode, it is the perfect ending to the perfect drama. Xiao Le is like a little cupid (Ref Ep 21) and is absolutely adorable, he just wants to see his parents together and for him to be in a happy home, a happy family and with a happy ending. I couldn’t help but find it amusing how he played cupid with Guang Xi and Mu Cheng. Yet, I am glad that the drama has a happy ending and something that actually seems like real love, the acting is so enjoyable to watch. Guang Xi and Mu Cheng are finally happy with themselves and eachother, the truth is revealed and no upset, no remorse and no regret. Just like a Taiwanese drama should be!

Even at the start of this finale, I love to watch their acting, they work together so well. Vanness Wu, really has pulled it out of the bag and I must say that this has to be the best drama I have seen him in, and I will watch many more of Ady An’s drama’s that she stars in. I have to recommend this drama to anyone no matter their preferences. It has brilliant acting, atmosphere and the chemistry between each character is just superb! I loved every minute of this drama and would gladly watch it all over again!
