What started out so good has become something so incomprehensibly bad that it became unrecognizable. Seriously, the only way for us to get through it was to tweet to each other while watching it, sitting next to each other, mind you.
We've even made a graph to explain how this drama has gotten progressively worse. Graph created by my BF Lizabreff:

What started out as a happy little Romantic Comedy about a man, named Lu Tian Xing, who wants to escape from the corporate crap life.
He has to disguise as an alter ego, Xiao Lu, to help this girl who has an irrational hate for him.
Then girl falls in love with the alter ego instead of himself to the point of obsession.
The highpoint of the whole drama is way too early, in episode 4-5, where they are trapped in the warehouse and he figures out how much he likes her. Way too early.
But this might be one of the best and only times of good romantic tension.
Which leads to everyone being sad and looking like this, because Xiao Lu doesn't real exist.
It becomes a complete melodrama instead, but at this point, while the drama was annoying, it would have been bearable, since there were funny times too, but it really needed to be the end.
Why would she not want to kiss him? Seriously, how can she not be attracted to Lu Tian Xing when he is literally the same person as Xiao Lu?
This teal suit is a high point by itself.
This part was quite good.
This kung fu fight over who gets to pick the flower out, awesome.
Then she is still so obsessive that he can't win against himself.
So he breaks down because he can't stand all this moping either.
And there is a little bit of cuteness before the inevitable happens.
|If only you would, then this drama could have been over a lot sooner...|
This happens and the drama, which might have been saved despite it's draggy dramatic crap, is ruined forever.
Did they run out of ideas and decide to steal the plot of Miss Rose? It sucked in that one too.
Way too much emotional manipulation.
Then there is the mom. Every time she was on the screen I just wanted to punch something, preferably her. Especially when she made that face of ultimate manipulation.
The manipulation becomes so bad that it passes even from the realms of melodrama to something along the lines of a revenge drama, but not before the other girl goes completely cray cray.
There is one more episode where we have some cuteness, to brace us for the craziness that follows. At least the main couple finally loves each other.
Aaron's got his shirt off- plus! He's using the same moves as in the warehouse. Scare the girl and she'll immediately jump on your lap. Classy.
This was a laugh out loud moment. Does he really think he's hiding? Did he get sneaky lessons from Tae Moo?
It's complete craziness, even the main couple tries to run away from it. Of course it doesn't work, but here's to hoping. Best part, Waterbottle Boy enters our life.
|MarlubsGD: @lizabr3ff remember how that guy who ran into the water bottles and was hot was a high point of |
Lizabreff: I am kind of intrigued by him because he came out of nowhere. Insta-crony? Do they grow on trees? #randomcharacter
|Even next to Aaron Yan, this man is hot.|
|A new level of crazy|
|I feel that way too, Tian Xing, but how about Mama Li's face instead of the wall?|
|This shot made a rotten episode a bit more worth it.|
|I love how he bluntly tells it like it is.|
|I wouldn't take that crap either, Lance.|
Then, suddenly, all the bad people realize that they were wrong and feel bad about what they did because it doesn't turn out the way they wanted it to, so they have to repent and be redeemed so everyone is a good guy again.
|Lizabreff: Wow, that scene was much more dramatic than it needed to be...and not
surprisingly, this statement can be applied to the whole drama |
Does this couple even like/know each other anymore?
It got to the point where the only way to watch it was by completely not paying attention, real time tweeting about it (mercilessly making fun of it), and generally just laughing at how bad it was.
We no longer cared about anything or anyone in it, but kept watching out of morbid curiosity about how bad it could really get and the fact that Aaron Yan is super hot will never change.
Other things that became highlights for us as the actual plot line was total crap.
Dale, the water bottle boy. Discovered at the waterbottle car crash, but we actually checked him out right about here:
Seriously hot guy. #waterbottleboy2015!
I actually liked Leo being a jerk for a while, his hair got hotter too.
|The drama could have ended a lot sooner had Leo not saved her here.|
Lance became the only sympathetic character by the ending. He was blunt and honest in calling everyone out on their crap. Also, he was a big boy and knew what to do to change himself first without anyone having to tell him or force him. In fact, he rejected their lame make themselves feel better pity and saved himself.
|MarlubsGD: @lizabr3ff Omo! Crying in the rain. Wet hair. I'm so attracted to Lance right now.|
It started out so well, and ended in the crappiest train wreck of a drama ever. But since I only started it for Aaron, I guess I can't be too disappointed, he was hot the entire time. It really needed to be a shorter drama, ending around the time that it suddenly changed into a different drama. There were several times where it could have ended, but didn't, and.... ugh!!!!
Like it could have easily been a 12 episoder and we still would have loved it. We would have loved it more. It would have been an awesome drama. No crippling manipulation type deals and she just forgives him and they can do something to wrap up the saving Oz and all is good. If only, if only...
