The story follows six students studying abroad, chasing their dreams and becoming the elites of their respective majors. Shu Che and Miao Ying were originally a couple, but Shu Che’s father forced them to separate, seeing how her family doesn’t benefit his side at all. He then meets Xiao Qing, a smart and independent girl who rises to the top based on her own efforts. The two fall in love but a crisis comes their way. Shu Che becomes involved in exposing his dad’s criminal activity and Xiao Qing is caught in between as a witness. Ultimately, the culprit is revealed and there’s a heavy price to pay. Everyone grows up in the process, understanding humanity and the value of life, returning to the path of justice.

My comments

Another great drama and story ! I recommend this drama especially because it discusses many subjects as far as the Chinese community is concerned, in China and outside China (in the US in this case). I like how Chinese people express their feeling about having to deal with some stereotypes when they live in foreign countries; for example, working in a Chinese restaurant, having to deal with visa procedures to study abroad etc. This story is about love and so but it also includes many story lines which show us a side of the Chinese society that we don’t know. There is the corruption part, about a government’s official who accept bribes from a rich entrepreneur which shows us that nobody’s perfect. I mean for someone like me who is really amazed by China and its evolution, it’s good to know that there is more to the story, if I can put it that way… Anyway, I might watch the drama again as usual I always watch these dramas twice especially to check my improvement in listening comprehension so enjoy !

I don’t have anything else to say except that the two lead actors (Luo Jin and Tiffany Tang) got married at the end of the year 2018 and I was very happy for them. I’ve been following them along their career together and I’m very proud of their achievements and good vibes they send to their fans.
