This drama is fantastic! Made me smile almost all way through.. I actually fell once off my chair, because I was laughing and I tossed my head back, not noticing the back of the chair was turned. Lol, so I was literally rolling on floor laughing.
Ella Chen and Jerry Yan as the leading couple, was both fun and sweet, occasionally passionate, so tooootally worth it. Chemistry knockout! The supporting roles were fun as well, Micheal Zhang and Kelly Huang were worth it. I was hooked at the beginning, right until episode 7. That’s were the lagging started. But the story became better further up, around episode 13. Shortly in math language ]start;ep 7] to [ep 13; end[ was the best, the middle is like a korean drama, dull.. :P lols.. All in all, GREAT!
