Well, I used an entire weekend, maratoning this one, and gotta say, love it. Eventhough Ive heard the story a gizillion (alot) times before, it didnt ruin it for me. Beginning is funny, and I like the new twist with the marriage and stuff, but still same story; rich crumpy guy and silly naive girl fall in love, but ups!.. can't be together since crumpy guy did some bad things and gotta pay for it..
I had a moment, getting all teary, but that was just because it was waay different than real life, and too sad at the same time. At that point, I had givin it a 5 ☆, but the episodes became too lengthy and way to much "i hate you" and "never wanna see you again".. The actor Lan Cheng Long was surpisenly good, and Chen Qiao En is the usual (its getting boring seeing her doing the same roles over and over and over and over again). Ending was too weak aswell, but all in all, an okay watch.
☆☆☆½ / 3,5 out of 5 stars
