Up to Ep5 and I am not sure why i am still watching! 🙂 It is a Spot-The-Cliche bonanza with the switched at birth backstory, spunky- poor-girl-with-attitude pitted against the spoilt-awful-rich-girl who fall in love with the male lead and the usual array of evil side characters plotting to separate the OTP (which there are so many of them!!!) BUT somehow, something keeps me watching and here I am!
I think it’s the Chen Xiao (Li Yao Nan) -Zhou Dong Yu (Liu Xin Tong)combo. Those 2 have a urban romantic nonchalance chemistry (liked their interactions at the vet) spiced with some sexy vibes which makes the relationship feel realistic for the early 20s set – not too angsty or overly passionate yet adult at the same time. I do like Liu Xin Tong as well – it’s my first time watching Zhou Dong Yu and I like that she is not your typical beauty with her small eyes and her personality does shine through compared to the second female lead. I can see why Yao Nan fell for her. And Chen Xiao – he does the urbane young man so well , polished but with a heart (not a supersized one like the second male lead but realistically sufficient!) That side eyed smirk from the Legend of Lu Zhen is back!
It helps that Jia Jing Hui who plays the second male lead Ji Zhen Yu is also a hottie and Ye Qing playing the second female lead Ji Zhi Zhen is so detestable. Interested to see his storyline and can’t wait for her comeuppance !
Not sure how much longer I will continue watching as I suspect that the dogblood scenes are coming. But for now, it’s meeting my quota for a light rom-com so let’s see where it goes!
