As you all know, this is the end of Hi, My Sweetheart and of the Rainie and Show collaboration in their first drama. This drama even with the downs is all in all a very light drama compared to others. It is funny, sad, serious and happy. Rainie and Alan worked exceptionally well together as we all know off screen they are good friends. Their kissing, was probably the best kissing I have seen in a while, they weren’t still like planks. Both idols have improved from the last dramas I had seen, Rainie is more fluent with her acting as she gets stuck in she moves and feels the emotion rather than try too hard to show it, and Show is just getting more funny and delightful to watch as time goes on. Them together was a spectacular choice as the bond and chemistry was there, so those two I would definitely like to see more of in the future!

So, Episode 11 is the kick start of the turn of events, as Hsueh Hai digs himself an even bigger hole of lies to tell Bao Zhu, such as ‘Da Lung’ is married, which obviously devastates Bao Zhu. In a way I can understand how Hsueh Hai feels, he wants the illusion he created 3 years ago to disappear from her heart, so that he can pursue her with his real, original self. Though things like this are never as easy as it may seem. In fact it’s harder, as he knows he has changed quite a lot due to believing that she abandoned him, and when the truth comes out I guess he continues to hide it because he’s ashamed that he can’t match up to who he was, and he can only move forward and once again try to get back the attributes he once had. Bao Zhu, now with this knowledge wants to move forward, if she can. So, she goes back to where it all began to remember and to wipe a clean slate, she wallows in her old memories one last time and attempts to seal them, but she had treasured someone so much that of course the memories would make a return..but hey, this is of course a drama, nothing will ever stay like that.

Mo Li and Hsueh Hai, do not get my started. I do not understand why Da Jie, has an obsession to get them together. It’s completely obvious Hsueh Hai is occupied with his first love, but then again she is a senile and mad older…sister…very older sister. Mo Li, clearly likes him; sort of. She is so nice so I can’t hate her like I should hate the ‘villain’ so to speak. It was obvious that Senior and Mo Li, would figure out who Hsueh Hai WAS. They are outside the box, where as Bao Zhu is in the mix of things, but I don’t understand how she doesn’t figure out who he is when he turns up at the University next to her (Rep Ep 11) or just by his mannerisms.

Out of both the sisters, I prefer Er Jie, she’s so much more happy go lucky, and tries to help as best as she can rather than forcing actions on people, like how she tries to talk to Hsueh Hai through that speaker when Bao Zhu shows up requesting to see Da Lung again (Ref Ep 11). Back to Da Jie, the man that hangs around her is awfully fishy for my liking, you can tell something is going to happen involving him.

Of course, a lie never stays covered. All is revealed (Ref Ep 12). The worst part is, it tears the two apart, due to Hsueh Hai hiding it due to his hatred of being abandoned, and due to his change. It’s sad really, as soon as that happens, the shell around his real personality, the ‘Da Lung’ personality cracks at this moment, and her words tear right through him. I like that Senior actually let him go though, perhaps to explain, so for that I like him, but I wish she’d let him explain. Then I can understand her shock, due to a bombshell like that being dropped on her. It’s so sweet, he’s finally back the ‘Da Lung’ personality, and even still he remembers her habits and everything about her. I think due to her actions of being one tracked minded and so unreasonable, she doesn’t deserve Da Lung. For now (Ref Ep 12). I like Mo Li, as eventually she helps, even if Da Jie tried to push Hsueh Hai and Mo Li together, okay I take that back, what an awful trick saying their fate has ended. She knows how easy Hsueh Hai is to trick, okay now I do not like her. Hsueh Hai, clearly still loves her. So, the drama begins and the fire starts (Ref Ep 12). It reminds me of My Lucky Star, they finally admit everything under the pressure of death and all is clear. That is always the way, of dramas. The special effects are a bit over the top, but at the end of the day, it’s a good drama none the less.

I feel really sorry for Bao Zhu, she has forgiven him, re-opened her heart to Hsueh Hai and Da Lung, but…he remembers nothing of Hsueh Hai, or his family and only know his name is Da Lung. So now, rather than him chasing her, she has to chase him. As normal, a turn of events (Ref Ep 13).  He has disappeared, completely, and he has his mushroom hair back! Senior, once again is pushed back to the sidelines, yet his relaxed nature accepts it. The fishy man, I mentioned early…he definitely has something to do with the new events. To be fair, the Hsueh Hai was much more mature than Da Lung in a sense. Another love triange, with another girl involved?

I find it really nice, how finally she’s trying to bring him back, and taking on the old her as a punk. Though, that man is sly, trying to get money for his own debts. It’s hilarious when Bao Zhu, turns on the Pink Panther theme tune, and automatically the two dance (Ref Ep 13). Kidnapping, haha (Ref Ep 13). Everything, just seems to get worse and worse for them. I just want them to be together 😦 Even though he is back to Da Lung, and lost his memory…he still has in depth feelings for her, that he can’t explain, there is clearly fate and clearly a bond!  FINALLY, after such a traumatic and painful episode to watch, he remembers, but bloody well let’s her go 😦 I swear these dramas confuse me more by the episode. Now onwards to a finale!

It’s nice to see the light heartedness of the drama back again, and once again the old Da Lung who always seems to manage getting himself in trouble. Naive Da Lung 🙂 To be fair, only Show can pull off Ugly Mushroom Head and a good looking rich look to be honest. Haha, I love how they’ve taken up their original parts from in high school. It’s great to have a taster of them before the end! His random outbreaks of talking to himself (Ref Ep 14) LOVE DA LUNG!  Okay, I love how Bao Zhu got the random pause outbreaks for once! Haha! I love how they’re tricking eachother. He sings her Happy Birthday, I actually cried (Ref Ep 14). For once, neither are running away, forgetting or being forced from one another, and now they can finally begin again, and properly with no lies. I still think it funny, that Bao Zhu is an accident magnet, and yet Da Lung tries to prevent it and becomes part of the accident. Such a corny ending, to a light hearted, corny and cliche, yet great drama, they get married. Finally, together, after having come face to face and finally learning so much. I’m actually so happy.

So, I’m sad to say that is the ending to Hi, My Sweetheart. I love the two main idols together, I wish to see them together again in more dramas as they work really well together, and the chemistry is there, they can work well with eachother and get the acting just right with no sense of forced acting or too over the top. Even with a cliche and corny drama their emotions were realistic. The storyline may have been a tad bit random and dragged over episode 12 to 13, it still was a good drama all in all in the end, but most of all, the romance, and the kiss scenes were the best I’ve seen in a long while!

Keep a look out, for the final installment of Autumn’s Concerto and the first installment for Perfect Girl Revolution. All within good time, will be on here! Thankyou for viewing my reviews and using my page as a way to see what I have to say, and my opinions or maybe deciding to watch the dramas. Thankyou.

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.
