I am almost done with the first episode (I've forgotten how long twdrama eps are - this one is an hour-and-a-half) and I love love love! I don't remember the last time a twdrama worked this well for me - it must have been years!

But there is no mugging, desperate cuteness (by now, I am exhausted by cutesy, shrill, infantile heroines), but a gorgeous indie vibe and people who feel real to me - I adore Ariel Lin's character so much - I can totally identify with her in pretty much every respect (except for not being as gorgeous :p) and just...Remember how I posted that I don't find Bolin Chen in the least attractive? Well, objectively, I can still tell he is not good-looking, but I love his character - the teasing, the sweetness, the bone-deep decency, so much, I don't even care:



Guuuh, why did it take me this long to discover this drama?

I have finished ep 1 (real life interferes with drama fun) and I ship Da Ren and You Qing so very much precisely because they are not dramatically star-crossed or romcom cute - no, they are so achingly real and people I am fascinated with, care about. Plus, they have all that history.



I've read about people not liking Ariel's character but for me she is the highlight of the drama, more than the score and the indie vibe and even Bolin Chen's marvelous Li Da Ren (though, wait, perhaps the latter is not true, as I love Da Ren and You Qing equally). She is something drama heroines are so rarely allowed to be - a real, breathing, flawed, complex human being. I can see both how she'd be hard to deal with and how Da Ren could love her. She's smart, independent, impatient, brusque, funny, self-absorbed, perfectionist, loyal, difficult, self-aware, dreamer. I adore her.

Oh, and I loved this little flashback, after her first defeat, when Da Ren told her she is a great girl. And then added not to misunderstand, he's never going to fall for her. Oh, honey!





I could watch these people do absolutely nothing exciting for eps and eps.

It sums up everything I love about them and this drama!

I am in the airport waiting for a flight but I cannot stop watching!

Btw, I think Bolin Chen is gorgeous now. Crow, mmmmm, tasty!
