148. Murphy's Law of Love 莫非,這就是愛情 (2015) Taiwanese

Danson Tang, Ivelyn Lee, Jolin Chien, Jenna Wang

Drama Rating: 7/10     Neck Score: A

Slow clap for this drama.  It didn't really do all that crap that most Taiwanese dramas do.  In fact, it was the most consistently logical RomCom I've seen in a while.  It was probably a first for me that during the break up scene I was more inclined to say: "You go, girl!" than anything else.  Obviously I didn't want them to break up, but her reasons were so genuine and logical that I couldn't call her stupid, just cowardly.  The worst part of the whole show has to be how lame Jolin Chien's character was.  He was pointless to the point that I hated him.  He was just there.  He was a catalyst, not a character.  He never actually did anything but help her get together with the main dude, and not in a cool way either.  Anyways, Danson Tang is whew sexy.  Especially his stares.  Rawr.  So the whole show was about the ups and downs of relationships, and there was plenty of character growth for the main couple because of it.  That part was the best.  It was all about personal growth as well as growth as a couple.  It got a bit draggy in parts, but then made up for it with all too much sexiness and out right adorable.  It actually stopped at 19 episodes rather than continuing the draggy though, so points.  Ji Jia Wei (Danson Tang) is, in the cuteness factor, the best boyfriend ever.  Better still because he matures and really does become the best boyfriend, so then I can say he's just all around best boyfriend material.
