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.

My comment

Well, I feel like all these Chinese dramas have the same storyline but there is something different about this one because it’s all about two Youngsters madly in love who are trying to make some changes for the better. They work hard together despite the economic crisis they are facing and more, Muzi’s mother who wants her daughter to be marrying a man of the same background.

I really loved this story because I guess, just like me, a lot of girls are looking for that man whose going to be there for them no matter what and fight together for a living, to live a better Life. A fantasy I guess…

It’s a 10/10 !
