Ok. Wow. So...I could write a bit about the unevenness of Chinese dramas. (I am still primarily a K-drama enthusiast). But I'm not going to. This is not an uneven drama at all. It's heavy and light and beautiful and ugly. It's funny and heartwarming and lovely. It's sad and dusted with anxiety and Loss. It's filled with every emotion connected to new love, love lost and love rekindled. This drama touches deep down but keeps the pace and the essence at the same time. This drama is not at all action filled but a beautifully told story about young love, mature love and the life that happens when years pass by. It lets you care for, not only the lead couple, but also for the supporting roles in a remarkable and unusual way. With this lovely and talented cast The writers managed to tell a story Sprinkled with not only intrigue and humor but also with important questions and factors in today's society such as domestic violence, Strong female role models, the value of the female sex, divorce and the view of the single woman raising a child on her own. Though these markers weren't the main storyline per se it's always refreshing and uplifting to come across these more, perhaps, provocative perspectives on social structures in Asian dramas. Because I am me, and this is how I do things in life, I've binged it and it was a lot of hours, but so very worth it.
