I just finished this drama a few days ago and decided to share my thoughts on it. It took me a while because I stopped in the middle after getting so busy that I couldn’t really make time for it anymore.
Starring Megan Lai and Roy Qiu, I thought that this drama was funny and quirky. A little refreshing, actually, because it wasn’t quite the same as all those typical rom-coms floating around among Taiwanese dramas.
The leads had nice chemistry and the characters weren’t too flat or boring. The lack of second-male lead syndrome helped, too. Actually, that little bit with the second-male lead near the end sort of threw me for a loop.
It got pretty boring around the middle, but picked up near the end, as a lot of dramas do. I actually posted about this a little while ago, but I’m glad that I finished it. The ending was sort of a little like redemption for the whole drama.
Perhaps the little (Read: Long) break that I took from watching the drama helped with that a little bit, who knows.
However, unlike many of the dramas that I’ve watched, the ending didn’t disappoint me. Usually, when I like dramas at the beginning, I find the endings sorely disappointing. This wasn’t the case this time, though.
Well…now to move on to my next drama, I guess.
So…I’m currently watching this Taiwanese drama called “Miss Rose”…that is, I’m totally stuck on episode 18 of 23. It’s not because I’m confused or whatever, but…it’s because the drama has gotten so boring that I don’t want to watch anymore.
This is where the problem comes in: I have this thing about finishing whatever I start (Dramas, songs, dances, etc.), so I can’t just leave it. But the plot has gotten pretty slow and I have no emotional investment so I don’t really care what happens to the characters anymore.
This was really cute, funny and entertaining at first, and I thought it would be a really good drama…but, like with most dramas that start off strong, they’re usually a let-down by the end. I found the idea of the drama cute and the chemistry between the two characters is pretty good (And, for once, I don’t have that annoying second-male lead syndrome…I actually sort of hate the second male lead)…it’s just the writers, dragging the plot on.
Well…I guess I’ll just finish this one off (I’ve been saying this for a month now). Luckily, I have “A Hundred Year Legacy” to keep me entertained, too (It’s on TV once a week…the two leads are just adorable together! Also no second-male lead syndrome…enjoying my break from that! Strangely enough, I dislike most of the characters, but still enjoy the drama, and I am totally rooting for the main couple…but that’s another story entirely).
Funny side note: This drama has been classified as a Korean Drama on some websites, which I don’t understand because it’s in Taiwanese and shot in Taiwan with Taiwanese actors/actresses…
