This show has been ready for ages, but I have no idea why it is shown only now. Anyway, a refreshing combination of Mike He and Charlene Choi (Taiwan-Hongkong pair up). Since Mike He is most commonly paired with Rainie Yang. And the last work I seen him in was in Bull Fighting/Hoops with Hebe from Taiwan Girl Group, S.H.E. Ignore the accent of Charlene, since I personally feel that the accent is in fact a plus point given that her role is a girl from HongKong. So it only makes sense to have such an accent.
ep1-7: So far it’s still revolving around a lottery ticket. Just leave it will you?! especially Bo Ye’s Buddy. No doubt in real life the huge amount will make one’s eyes flicker with $$$, but still if this drama is going to continue to drag and revolve around the storyline of lottery ticket…THIS IS SERIOUSLY BORING! So, Wei Li decided that he is going to get his fortune back to win back De Xing, (come on. This is not realistic enough as no guy will simply believe that the girl will like you once you change. Perhaps a probability of 20% only. It takes two hands to clap.) I agree with what Wei Chen says, “You’re so naive”, Mr Wei Li. The plot is going down…-.-zZZ But thumbs up for Xiao Tian Tian acting as a fan. Comparable to the fans in You’re Beautiful, also known as He’s Beautiful.
ep8: VERY AMUSING. The cabby seems to be very free. Yes I know their time is flexible, but it’s too unrealistic. They don’t go around to earn money but rather to be a hero?! Plus, the role of Wei Li is really a person with not much of an intelligience. No brainer to be honest. Thinking that he will be able to get De Xing. It’s turning out to be lousy. No wonder this drama done finished filming for so long yet started to broadcast last month. I might be giving this up for Summer’s Desire and Scent of love.
