Drama Reviews

This is finally, my next installment for Autumn’s Concerto, just to let you know Momo Love isn’t far behind! The next few episodes seems to be proper heartwrenchers so stay reading my reviews and the ones to come!

Tuo Ye really is too hot headed about Guang Xi setting up the whole village, when he clearly hasn’t got a clue. The way the villagers treat Guang Xi is a bit rude at the start of Episode 11 as they have no proof. The way Mu Cheng looks at Guang Xi when he leaves, it’s as if he’s feeling an emotion he cannot understand. Tuo Ye is blinded by jealousy; it’s about time he let go. I don’t like Chi Xin that much, I feel bad for her when she is rejected by Tuo Ye even if she is simple minded, she still has every right as everyone else to want to be loved. It’s nice that they give Guang Xi a second chance because slowly his old memories and personality is coming back.

In a way I do like Yi Qian for being a nice person but I have personally never liked love triangles that are this complex, and there is soon to be a time when she will begin to lose him, and turn to selfishness. Out of all the characters, she will be the one hurt the most, because she never thought that Mu Cheng would one day reappear, that Xiao Le maybe want to find his dad. It’s a cruel trick of fate, but she in a way wanted him to herself, she was already being selfish without realizing it, and quietly obeyed Guang Xi’s mother.

Even with no memory of before the 6 years, he is still affected by Mu Cheng deeply and Xiao Le, he can feel a connection much deeper for the both of them but doesn’t know why. Ren Guang Xi and Xiao Le really are like father like son, yet without even noticing. Tuo Ye and Guang Xi are having minor competition with no need to be, but it’s just their links from before.

It’s ironic, how they go back to Sheng De University where everything began and the beginning for the two of them, memories. It’s even more ironic, that they are both locked in the same room, where they found the bird and he told her that story; deja vu. He is slowly recollecting his memories through flashbacks. I think without realizing it Mu Cheng wanted Guang Xi the man she loves to come back to her and for him to remember, by going back into that room, but she didn’t realize she had done it until his flashbacks begin. It must be an awkward situation for her, because she must want to tell him she was in that room with him before, but she can’t for the sake of everyone and everything else, including the lies that she has been forced to keep.

He desperately wants to remember. I really feel sorry for him in his situation when he says living his life is like living a life of a complete stranger, and slowly Mu Cheng is revealing to him the truth about him, his childhood and his past. I love how his progress to becoming the old him, is becoming visible. As I watch him slowly remembering, I still feel sadness watching Mu Cheng endure it, since his remembering is taking such a long time. She really is brave.

When Tuo Ye’s mother tells Guang Xi about how Mu Cheng came to be at the village, I really wanted him to remember, and when Xiao Le said Guang Xi smells like his dad, that really wanted to make me cry, yet I really pity Tuo Ye. He knows he can’t win but he still tries so hard. I love how he remembers in the thunder, just like the night they stayed together, that’s the flashback. The conversation they are having (Ref Ep 12) is so awkward, for her since she for one has to talk about herself as another person and him as someone else. Frustrating!

Personally I think Yi Qian and Tu Ye match together better, and also those two are completely unaware of what is about to happen. The reaction on Yi Qian and Mu Cheng’s face; explain everything. Aww the god of bathwater, that’s so cute. They really do, have a relationship that isn’t just of friendship, since I would never ever see a man quite so willingly get in a bath with a child they knew for a month.

She still has that photo of the two of them together, he really is connected, you can see the sorrow, that he feels like he doesn’t want to leave. I also noticed that Yi Qian isn’t all that nice and sweet, I do feel sorry for her but you can sense something bad is coming, and that his mother is a real stick in the mud. Mu Cheng, did never hurt Guang Xi, she did it because she was forced, I feel bad that Mu Cheng gets it aimed at her. I can understand, both of their feelings and arguments, but it was all instigated by Guang Xi’s MOTHER.

It’s cute how Tuo Ye tells her, his feelings…but the problem is even if she reluctantly agrees, she doesn’t love him and cannot reciprocate these feelings. She is trying so much harder than Yi Qian to be strong. She is doing it because she wants him to be happy and she is keeping to what she was told to do. That is far harder, than anything. To keep in those tears of sorrow and mask it with happiness. The moment between Guang Xi and Xiao Le, is so amazing, but with so much sorrow, you just want to scream Xiao Le is his.

Oh dear, Xiao Le goes after Guang Xi, and meets his grandmother without even knowing. Talk about deja vu. He faints oh dear 😦 and then once again everyone meets….like fate giving them all a cruel twist. Xiao Le brings them together, maybe for the best, but to get to the green grass it’s going to be a bumpy ride.

No matter though, how much I hate her, she didn’t know anything about Mu Cheng or Guang Xi and their relationship or what really happen, she does what she did based on what Guang Xi’s mother told her, and looked after him for so long, no wonder she would fall in love with him. How they all race to donate blood, and she denies Guang Xi for the simple reason, he’d find out he’s Xiao Le’s father.

So, Yi Qian discovers the truth, and Guang Xi’s mother really does hate Mu Cheng, yet I really don’t see why, and yet again treats her like rubbish. I hate that woman. I can understand Tuo Ye is trying to do good, but his natural hate before Guang Xi, is just proving there is a past that needs to be covered up, and Guang Xi really cannot answer half the questions Tuo Ye blames Guang Xi for.

Guang Xi, seems as if he is going to regret being with Yi Qiang, he is clearly drawn to Xiao Le by the natural instincts of a father, which pains Yi Qian because she has to lie, but Mu Cheng has had to hide it for much much longer. That professor, I really like him, he actually gives Guang Xi a straight answer, that is neither a lie, nor the truth; but instead an open doorway, to the answer he wants. He finds it, in the bracelet that has always been a link to his past, he really has opened Pandora’s box.

The way he changes instantly, to who he was before he met Mu Cheng, blaming it all on Mu Cheng is a misunderstanding. They are both now in full turmoil, he doesn’t realize the reason Mu Cheng really had to leave, and also she won’t admit because she is too scared, but also now doesn’t want Guang Xi to hate his mum, more than he already does. Now, they’re all going to have to go through another bad battle, to only finally realize the truth.

In a way, I am happy, I know it will all turn out well in the end, even if he only does want to marry Mu Cheng to let them both have Xiao Le, but you know he will find out the truth of what his mother has done in the end, and love will once again reign over the two. I like how Yi Qian and Guang Xi leave on good terms. It’s nice, maybe he is slowly beginning to see that maybe Mu Cheng didn’t do it because she didn’t want to, she had to. He also still doesn’t get the picture about Tuo Ye and her either. Which is REALLY irritating.

Vanness Wu, really has astounded me with his acting, I have never seen him on his own in a drama, apart from Peach Girl, but this is amazing. He really has talent and skill, Ady An can really pack a punch with her acting also. Together the chemistry is just fizzing and really boiling over.

Anyway, this review is extremely long, I’m sorry. I shall upload Momo Love ASAP. I also look forward to the next episodes to come, as you can see Pandora’s box is going to be solved.


Well, this is my second installment of: Hi, My Sweetheart! Recently, I have realized that I have a lot of reviews to speed up on, I have to complete as many as possible of recent new dramas but also do Black & White (which I have left on hold) Sound of Colours, and Love Contract. I will try to upload them, within my spare time! So enjoy, the next review of Hi, My Sweetheart!

So Episode 6 begins, three years into the future, and it Bao Zhu, still waits for Da Lang who has now taken back his original name Xue Hai. I noticed, that there are still old traits in Xue Hai; randomly falling asleep, jutting out his chin and his sensitivity (Ref Ep 6). He still, dresses in pink; like the Pink Panther and his driving skills match Bao Zhu’s; so both of them have come away from the relationship with different things they have learned and felt from one another. I love that, just by her voice he knows it’s her; and so the rollercoaster jolts into the dramas great storyline…

The flashbacks, I actually really like in this drama, because the memories of this drama between the two are meaningful, the whole idea and the storyline for this drama is different but they effect me as the viewer so much more as it is a change to watch, rather than the normal cliche dramas I have watched.

Xue Hai, is irresistibly Da Lang all over, like his little random thought outbursts, they make me laugh! No matter how hard “Da Lang” hides it, his true personality floods back when he’s with Bao Zhu. I love how many more Da Lang moments, are becoming frequent as the drama goes along. I noticed that now Bao Zhu only wants love; she no longer holds expectations in men, she changed because of Da Lang. Xue Hai, knows exactly how to irritate Bao Zhu, so he does that to bring back her fiery personality (Ref Ep 7). When Xue Hai turns back to Da Lang when he’s drunk it’s so cute (Ref Ep 9). Quite honestly, Episode 9, the kissing scene (spoiler, if you haven’t watched!) one of the best kissing scenes i’ve seen in a long time!

One thing that gets me is that she cannot figure out it’s Da Lang, because Da Lang was always not too good at lying, she just refuses to believe he’s back, and because of the incident that he has the heart to change too. All the clues are flashing her in the face, yet she doesn’t notice. I hate how Bao Zhu agrees to be Yang Feng’s boyfriend when Da Lang, is right in front of her (Ref Ep 8). Even if in his mind, he wants revenge on Bao Zhu, in Xue Hai’s heart, he still loves her and she also loves her Da Lang no matter how much she tries to forget. To me it’s almost as if they are going around in circles, at first she found Da Lang, irritating then warmed up to him.

The two sisters, are exactly the same; always bickering like an old couple haha! Yet, as always the eldest sister is up to her tricks again, being irritating as always, yet she has been like that from the start, you begin to get used to it. The 2nd sister, I didn’t see much of her in the beginning, now she seems to have a bigger role, I can understand that she is trying to help Da Lang, as they both think she hurt him, as they never knew the whole story, behind what happened to Bao Zhu, which aggravates me a little bit, but I’m sure everything will come to the surface in the end. I hated when they were drunk, their memories flooded back and they were more clear headed than they are sober, yet when they are sober they are blinded with some kind of ill feeling towards eachother and they don’t even know why! The fact after all that drama, that she cannot see he is Da Lang…how is it not obvious?! (Ref Ep 10).

As always, his jealousy is still child like and cute, I guess he can’t keep up face for very long at one time, it’d be nice for them both to realize that together the people they want to be is becoming more and more solid, when they are together, rather than being apart. On the other hand, Yang Feng, is a nice guy but he still irritates me, fair enough loving Bao Zhu all this time, I have to hand him that he is persistant and patient but to keep pestering her when ‘Da Lang’ will always be the one in her heart. On that note, I prefer Da Lang’s old room mates, not these new people. Just thought I’d add that in. Mo Li and Ye Qian return…ughh…as expected (Ref Ep 10).

All the way through this, even knowing Rainie Yang and Show Lo, are close friends behind scenes, their chemistry is so enjoyable to watch, whether they are pouting at eachother, being romantic, falling for eachother, angry with one another, turning a scene into a comedy, it’s enjoyable to watch. I love their acting together, they should do dramas more often with one another. They give me that lovely warm feeling, that makes me smile watching the drama, even sometimes in sad moments, because you know in the end everything is going to be okay. When he dresses as Da Lang, for her to see him again, actually made me cry (Ref Ep 10). I know though, she will find out, she will see the truth, and everything will be resolved.

Well, I look forward to the next few episodes, I don’t think there will be aroud 25 episodes, because that’ll drag a bit too long. I feel the episodes will be shorter. I look forward, to the next episodes updates, I hope you enjoyed my review!

Okay, Christmas and New Year are over, I decided to welcome in this New Year with the next review of Momo Love! Autumn’s Concerto and Hi, My Sweetheart won’t be far behind, just sit tight. So, enjoy the following review!

During, the beginning of episode 7, even if this is a romantic comedy, there is a plot to the story, even if the story is far fetched and much more over the top; it is still the storyline. A love square; Shi Lang, Tao Hua, Hui Qi and Zhi Qiang. Yet, only two of these four will triumph (Shi Lang and Tao Hua).

Their characters, are really strange, as I haven’t seen Calvin Chen in any other drama except Romantic Princess neither have I seen Li Jia Ying who plays Hui Qi. In this drama; quite honestly, I like neither of them. Their acting isn’t exactly great as they are both seemingly in characters that don’t suit them. Even if Calvin Chen is quite good looking I don’t like his character in this drama, and he cannot fake cry even if this drama is an over the top, and blatant in your face drama, the least he could do is learn to cry properly. Yet, I guess that comes with practice in acting. I think that Zhi Qiang’s role is actually quite creepy, but I have to hand it to him; he plays the brothers at their own games.

Cyndi Wang; hasn’t actually had that much in experience in the acting field, I have seen a lot of her previous dramas, but she has become a successful actor as she has progressed during her dramas, her intimacy scenes with romance like kissing, needs some more work to produce a proper kiss! Personally I cannot enjoy a good romance drama if the intimate scenes between the two love birds aren’t efficient. I know that Tao Hua’s personality is pure, sheltered and naive but seriously she cannot be that naive as to what Zhi Qiang is actually trying, nor can she notice the change in her brothers when Zhi Qiang comes to get her, compared to how they treat Shi Lang. She is both naive and dense ( Ref Ep 7).

I am beginning to get irritated by the brothers, yes they are meant to be loving and caring, but the way they treat Tao Hua is just so annoying, because let’s be serious she’s a big enough girl, to have a life of her own. They really like hurting Shi Lang and Tao Hua; as their relationship isn’t exactly stable yet! So, Zhi Qiang kisses Tao Hua (Ref Ep 7) though it was clearly forced…Shi Lang runs away?! I do, feel really upset for the both of them, Tao Hua did nothing wrong and became misunderstood, and Shi Lang doesn’t understand the whole story 😦

I like how Zhuan Ge and He Ge, actuallyΒ  begin to do something to help Tao Hua, instead of being a hindrance, and they attempt to help both Tao Hua and Shi Lang (Ref Ep 7). I also never noticed until now how much charm He Ge actually has πŸ˜› Yet Hui Qi, is unbelievably a spoilt child, underneath her cute exterior is an ugly interior. After all that hard work, Tao Hua doesn’t give up on him and she finally manages to say what she has wanted to say after all this time, and Shi Lang kisses her! Qi Ge on the other hand (Ref Ep 8) I lose a lot of respect for him, over Tao Hua’s feelings he’s thinking of his job status, after finding out that the old man is Zhi Qiang’s father.

Zhi Qiang’s father, is actually quite brutal and goes to such petty lengths to get what he wants, I take back what I said about Qi Ge, he really does love his sister, and due to Tao Hua finding out their secret room (Ref Ep 8) she’s obviously going to accept the proposal and sacrifice her love for her brother. I think on the other hand that Shi Lang should stop being blinded by anger and start to actually see the bigger picture, and how Tao Hua is actually feeling! Though, Calvin may not be making the situation for her any better at least he’s not as arrogant and pig headed and can see the tough situation Tao Hua is in.

So that box is her box filled with precious memories of Shi Lang (Ref Ep 8). To be honest, Yu Yi is the only one that can get through to Tao Hua, and he sees and hears everything, he’s like a wise owl.Β  The brothers really shouldn’t be left to their own devices, they’re dangerous, even if they are trying to help. Zhi Qiang and Shi Lang are fighting over Tao Hua using Judo! Wow, Shi Lang really can’t do anything without Tao Hua (Ref Ep 8).

Zhuan Ge and Yu Yi’s fighting, makes me laugh so much (Ref Ep 9) but at least they are now all trying to do what is best for Tao Hua, rather than seeing her go through something she hates. Those texts, they sent her actually makes me think the brothers are so cute, and that Tao Hua really is what is hold them together. I think Yu Yi is terrific, he found the box and is showing it to Shi Lang (Ref Ep 9). I love how the tables have turned, rather than trying to get rid of Shi Lang, they’re helping Tao Hua, hahahaha.

FINALLY, they get to be together, and everything actually comes together, they kiss and omg…that’s just too cute! I love how Yu Yi tries to comfort Hui Qi as well πŸ™‚ I’d feel just like Tao Hua, if I went over to Shi Lang’s house and met his dad acting like that haha (Ref Ep 9).

Zhi Qiang, makes me laugh, and his imagination you’ve got to hand it to him, in my opinion now that the whole arranged marriage thing has happened, Tao Hua and Shi Lang are so much more happy and the drama is smooth sailing. In Episode 9, everyone has come together, and I actually think it’s cute to watch.

Well, I hope you enjoyed the new drama review, I will upload the next ones when they’re ready. Hope you all had a great Christmas, and wish all of my readers a Happy New Year!

During, the next 5 episodes of this drama, I was astounded by just how bittersweet the emotions were. Within the first episode I noticed every feeling just pouring out, sadness, happiness, love, care, jealousy, frustration everything. It was enough to just make you cry at the things they said to each other and the strain their relationship suddenly had to put through. In Episode 6, their relationship suddenly has a time limit, and the moments they spend together are even more upsetting and bitter to watch, with an essence of sweetness.

The sacrifice that Mu Cheng must put herself up for, is horrible, in order for Guang Xi, to start a new life. I think his mother, thinks she is doing the right thing, but she is horribly wrong, she’s too high on her horse and really has to get off of it, or else she will lose her son, maybe not at the present, but definitely in the future. The pain Guang Xi, has to endure, is a good thing that he forgets it because otherwise, to wake up after the operation would be plain heartache. I have honestly never seen a drama so heartfelt, painful and romantic apart from this one. The two main characters are astounding together. I love this drama.

Even after all the time, they haven’t seen each other for so long, they are still connected to one another. He still holds that bracelet, and hopefully the flashbacks will become more vivid. Guang Xi has in a way changed his attitude towards how he treats people, I also noticed how unethical Guang Xi has become about his job. Such a shame really, he was a much better man when he knew Mu Cheng. He knew the differences between right and wrong. Mu Cheng is still as soft and caring as always. Xiao Le, is absolutely adorable, she clearly only wants Xiao Le right now, because she can only love Guang Xi in her life.

It’s kind of sad to watch when Xiao Le asks her questions and Mu Cheng is trying hard to hide her emotions and to block her memories. The lives they have made separately, you can see they are missing something, and even to the audience it doesn’t feel right. Ady An and Vanness Wu, really do have amazing chemistry together, even when he doesn’t remember her it’s astounding to see their connection. They play their parts exceptionally well, and Tuo Ye (Chris Wu) for sticking by Mu Cheng, even though it’s one sided love. I can’t help but admire Yi Qian (Tiffany Wu) for enduring all of that, but the burden to know that he loved someone before her but also because you can tell who he’ll end up with in the end.

Even in later episodes, you can sense bitterness in their hearts, because there is a hole in both. For Mu Cheng, it must hurt so much, and then for Guang Xi, to not even remember what made him happy and to only now start remembering, and even then it’s blurred, so it’s confusing him. I’ve also noticed, that some old faces are reappearing, but not for good causes (Yi Qian’s dad).Β  There is a sense of deja vu, with this whole thing. It’s beginning again, the courtcase resembled what happened to Mu Cheng before and the 240 hours of community service, he did that with what happened with his car and bus!

I really cannot wait, until Guang Xi’s mum has all of this blow up in her face, she really is too selfish. Thinking for herself, she doesn’t realize to what extent they loved each other and that 6 years ago Mu Cheng was carrying his child!Β  The moment Xiao Le saw Guang Xi, I actually almost cried. It was such a sweet moment, but Guang Xi knows nothing, and that’s what really upset me, little children are so naive. I really feel Mu Cheng’s pain of seeing her past lover, but to know he doesn’t remember is more pain than everm and when he says he lost all his memories before those 6 years, that must have felt like taking a bullet. As time passes by at the village, you can clearly tell he’s beginning to get relaxed and actually enjoy himself there, his memories from his past are getting so much more vivid, I really hope he can remember soon.

I greatly anticipate the last few episodes, because no matter how sad this drama gets, I have that urge to watch it and hope for happiness. Please keep waiting for my next review!

Okay, this is the second chunk of Momo Love, that I will be reviewing. I am taking a long time with my reviews because as you all know Christmas is getting very close and everyone and everything is very hectic, I still have presents to buy! I took some time out though to review this for you guys! So, enjoy..

As this drama carries on, you begin to notice just how sweet this drama is. Cyndi Wang (Momo/ Tao Hua) and Jiro Wang (Shi Lang) are actually working together very well. When Tao Hua really tries to contact Shi Lang (Ref Ep 4) through her MP3 player, I thought that was really heartwarming, but also how naive and just besotted she was when she stumbled with her words. Their conversations over the phone, they immediately lit up when they received a text from one another. They’re so funny when they’re together, they have the same personalities as eachother, the way they talk included. They’re both naive and cute characters, I can’t wait to see how this drama pans out.

The brothers, and the sister, are each way too over protective of eachother, they believe that their sibling is not fit for eachother, which I think is a bit cruel considering it should be those two who decide on that, as it is their life. Both younger siblings’ are being smothered with kindness. After just meeting Shi Lang’s older sister I can already notice she is a feminist and that she is just as over protective of her little brother as the brothers to Tao Hua are. A bit ironic really. Tao Hua’s brothers though, to follow her around, to prevent her from being happy is a bit ridiculous, but funny at the same time (Ref Ep 4). I do love how Chen Cheng and Xiao Xue are just like Shi Lang and Tao Hua; inexperienced in love. For Shi Lang and Tao Hua to get them together is actually really sweet. Though I forgot Yu Yi likes her, dear of him.Β  Oh God, Chen Cheng and Xiao Xue are so funny like a bickering couple LOL (Ref Ep5). Why on earth do they have hairdryers in the toilets? Can someone please tell me? (Ref Ep 5).

I find the day that they spend together, really sweet. As they’re both inexperienced with love and have no idea about loves sincerity etc, and they are in a way teaching eachother. I think that their older siblings’ should respect this, rather than to follow them around, because Shi Lang and Tao Hua have to hide from the older siblings’ and even cheat them to even spend a day together. I’m amazed that when Chen Cheng is on his own he actually is quite honest and blunt with the truth, I have new found respect for him.

I hate obstacles like siblings’ because it makes it harder on the two because of their over protection. The sibling characters play these parts really well, yet I am actually beginning to get irritated by them. I hope that the siblings’ begin to realize the extent of their over protection. Finally! Qi Ge, is thinking about Tao Hua, and giving her some leverage! Hahaha, Shi Lang behind Xiao Xue and Cheng Ge, with bread and drink; nothing like a live show eyyy? (Ref Ep 5).

Wow, the brothers are actually trying to help the two, and maybe not in the most efficient way, but it’s a start. I think Yu Yi, has found someone he likes; Dong Hui Qi!Β  Yet, I think his imagination scares me. I can’t stop laughing at the dance in the toilets; LOLOL (Ref Ep 5). I do feel kind of sorry for Tao Hua though, she really tries and that girl just steps on her feelings. Omg…Calvin enters, after five episodes! Yet, what an awkward moment (Ref Ep 5). I like how Cheng Ge straightens Shi Lang out though. If he’s never given out that photo before, how come she has one? I love her brothers though LOLOL. Oh dear, you can see the problem already between all the characters. Yu Yi’s daydreaming, is really beginning to freak me out. All the brothers are so easy and troublesome at the same time, and it’s so funny.

I don’t like the new girl, she’s really hurting Tao Hua, which I think is really cruel, considering Tao Hua and Shi Lang were really getting into some kind of relationship. I don’t think Shi Lang knows anything about Dong Hui Qi’s feelings, or he’s trying to ignore them, and she is a LIAR. I HATE HER. Poor Tao Hua. I don’t think Shi Lang knows anything about this so called ‘engagement’. Yeah, she really is a liar using really horrible tricks on everyone, and deceiving people. I really hate her and her ways, but being honest and blunt I must admire her for. Hui Qi, is definitely the spoilt brat in this drama. I think on the other hand, I’m going to like Calvin in this drama, which is the first time I’ve liked the other guy in a love competition πŸ˜€

I just realized, if Hui Qi is trying to copy Tao Hua, because she has the fear of losing and ends up joining the judo club, Hui Qi is going to be having her ass kicked. Okay, Tao Hua kicks ass at judo, I think Hui Qi should start getting scared (Ref Ep 6). Oh I think I love Calvin! Though, you can tell he has a secret crush on Tao Hua already and is jealous of Shi Lang. Ahahaha, she owned him (Ref Ep 6). I think he will be capable, of buttering up the four brothers. I don’t understand, how is crush can develop to love in a matter of days? Then again this is a drama xD. Umm, I’ m beginning to wonder about Zhi Qiang’s sexuality. He pretends to be gay for help off the brothers?! Okay, this guy is definitely smart.

I’m getting more excited as I see the plot unravel before me, and I really hope that Tao Hua and Shi Lang can fight through it, no matter how much I may like Zhi Qiang, I love Tao Hua and Shi Lang!

Okay, since I am trying to get as many reviews up before my birthday tomorrow as possible. I am reviewing a lot today. It’s like a drama marathon for me! I have decided to review Rainie Yang and Show Lo’s new drama together called Hi, My Sweetheart.

I am really glad, that Rainie has made an attempt over the past three of her dramas to be a different main character, from her usual cute/sweet characters. For instance, in Miss No Good she was weird and quirky, that is why I adored that drama and ToGetHer because she was cold and wasn’t very open. But, in Hi, My Sweetheart, it’s taken an 180 degree turn and she is now the rebel of this drama. So, I hope that this drama will not take the form of a ‘typical’ idol drama.

In this drama, just by looking at the opening theme, and song it’s a romance/ comedy along with a love triangle between the three obvious main characters; Lee Wei, Rainie Yang and Show Lo. Mo Li played by Maggie Wu and Lee Wei who plays He Yan Feng, are clearly going to come up between the two later on in the drama. I’m excited to watch this drama because Rainie and Show have never performed in the same drama together, so I want to see their chemistry together. I already love the opening song too (Head Over Heels in Love by Show Lo).

I like the quirky and nerdy style they’ve come up with for Hsueh Hai/Da Lung, along with that naive and innocent weak boy as opposed to rich and snobby, I really like Show Lo’s acting, he’s the type of actor who can really connect with his character and give the drama the warmth that it needs. His hair style, glasses and clothing just adds more fun to the drama for me! So Hsueh Hai becomes Da Lung for precaution; a tad OTT don’t you think? On his eldest sisters behalf, but I love the reason behind is new name, “Da Lung, Da Lung, Da Lung Da Lung Da Lung Da Lung Da Lungggggg, Da Lung Da Lung.” (Ref Ep 1).

Then there’s Bao Zhu, the fiery and level headed girl, who inside is actually not at all what she seems on the outside. In fact, she’s sensitive to a lot but she can hide things very well, but ‘Da Lung’ has the ability to see through her. Rainie is really pretty in this drama, she doesn’t look overly dressed and too cute, she looks plain and it stands out more. I also, like her acting, she may be a bit out of her comfort zone, but there is time to accommodate for the newer tone of character she has been set to display. I hope she can pull it off, as so far it’s terrific.

I love his two older sisters, like real sisters they’re constantly bickering. I find both sisters like added humour to the drama, but the eldest sisters is really way to over protective and over the top in her acting, (Ref Ep 1). I already like his family’s weirdness. I can now see why he’s so naive, his eldest sister dotes on him.

There is a humorous feelings around Da Lung and Bao Zhu, a friendship begins the foundations for love. Bao Zhu, has obviously not got many friends, and when someone who appears as weak as Da Lung, it’s impossible for him to have so much courage to stand up to her and actually offer a friendship, that she craves so much. There is chemistry between the two, that is slowly beginning to bubble, because as they are friends behind the scenes, it’s clear that they’re comfortable to an extent with one another. I just hope the chemistry builds to portray a blossoming drama and romance plot.

I notice the whole story plot, has the twist at the beginning reminding me of many other dramas, but you usually see the twist at the end and not in the beginning, and this time they’ve used a plot that not many dramas use: Rainie having to leave. So, I hope that this drama can make up a good plot that brings them back together, and builds a strong love for the drama. Hsueh Hai’s (Show Lo) drastic change, was a surprise to me (Ref Ep 5). He also takes on his previous name. Obviously he is hurt due to what happened, and Bao Zhu not contacting him. So he has taken on a mean exterior, but obviously he is still hurt inside. I’m looking forward to see how well this story really pans out. Bao Zhu (Rainie Yang) on the other hand has taken the softer approach to life, she’s kinder but she still holds her fiery attitude, and can control herself much better than before.

I reviewed, the first 5 episodes. I am attempting chunks so I don’t get caught up like I did with the majority of dramas before. So please, bare with me until the next chunk of episodes of Hai Pai Tian Xin is out!

“How to let you know me, at this most beautiful moment, for this I have been in demand for 500 years before Buddha, praying for Buddha to bring us together with fate, as a result Buddha changed me into a tree, where I grew near you, under the sunlight; flowers bloomed. Every flower were wishes from my former life. When you walk near, please listen closely, it’s me waiting for you wholeheartedly, and when you walk past, behind you the ground will be covered. Friend, it is not petals, it is my heart scattered around.” – Hai Pai Tian Xin.

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 πŸ™‚ 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.
