I quite like this finale! I love it that there was a point to the ending – many drama finales dedicate 60 minutes to pure happy endings, which is great because on top of seeing the main couple being lovey dovey and sweet for an hour, I almost always stop having drama blues haha. I think a good ending does it just right in the sense that it satisfies you with enough couple time but leaves you wanting to see more of them. I know I will definitely miss this couple and the entire cast a lot!! Note: long recap ahead, do let all the screenshots load first!
I don’t know how they do it, but in my honest opinion, each episode just gets better in this show! And that ending, wow great editing that foreshadows what’s going to come in the next episode (finale) and yet manages to end this episode on a cliffhanger of sorts. And I thought I signed myself up for some Ferris Wheel, pleasant rom-com ride from Episode 1 to 20. This episode just proved me wrong with its thriller bits hahahaha (disclaimer: author’s heart is *really* weak so what thrills her may not thrill you hoho). Lots of screenshots and possibly long recap coming ahead!
I really enjoyed this episode! I think the crying scenes were GREAT, the patching up between Mum and Daughter is gradual and logical, the conflict between the couple is slowly dissolving, You Qian and Yong Qing finally become the friends that they originally should have been, Yan Ze steps up on his game, a hint of a new relationship between Yong Qing and Ya Lu, and a very cool Jiang today. What an awesome episode that ties in so many storylines into 60 minutes! If the entire show had been this tight, relatively fast-paced and diverse, it would have been a great show. But it’s okay! I did love watching the pleasant couple-only scenes in the first 8 episodes hahaha. BECAUSE I AM MISSING THE COUPLE SCENES SO MUCH NOW. GIVE THEM BACK TO ME. (Notice that I don’t really care about Yan Ze and Ya En. Ahem.)
I really like this episode! I think it has its fair share of plot, good acting and comic relief. As usual, I love the small, inconsequential dialogue between Zhi Lin and Mei Wen – they make everything so cute and funny! Although our couple has met with an obstacle this episode, I believe that it wouldn’t pose too much of a trouble, since the whole show has been sort of that pleasant Ferris Wheel ride you take instead of a roller coaster – cruising along with highs and lows instead of plunging the viewer constantly into fright and anticipation.
Quite like this episode as usual – we have a few nice plot movements and little laughs here and there. It’s always a good time when Pu Lang Gang is in town!
Oh my is it Episode 15 already? Although I really like this episode’s conflict and development, I don’t think the drama can close within the next episode. Just how many episodes is this show?
This episode should be titled ‘An Xi’s monologues’. Haha jokes aside (okay I’m not even kidding), I quite like certain parts of this episode!! I think the drama’s strongest point isn’t in the plot, since it can be quite slow and draggy sometimes, but I do think that they write nice dialogue most of the time, and they know how to capitalise on their leads’ chemistry.
I think this may be one of my most favourite episode yet! Relatively fast-paced, LOTS of cute moments, and some conflict! I LOVE that bit of Heal Me Kill Me that I sensed, although it’s apparently not a KMHM reference. Oops. But You Qian you are seriously too funny.
Almost EVERYTHING happened in this episode! When the pace is slow, it’s slow. When it’s fast, wow. I think the way the reveals are dealt with are not too hurried, simply because the scriptwriters decide to take the simple (and easy?) way out.
FINALLY. Finally we have an episode set mostly in Taipei, and I was right. Things move along much faster here and there’s more juicy conflicts.
I need to control myself and stop flailing around/squealing like an idiot! Quite impressed with some teeny bits of acting I saw today too.
Although it was a fun and pleasant watch, nothing much actually happened in this episode, other than finding out what exactly happened between An Xi and her father, and watching You Qian get jealous (hehe).
Quite like this episode! There’s loads of fluffy sweetness, and active pursuing woohoo. The only thing I would like to complain about is that it seems like we are going to spend yet another few episodes in Pu Lang Village??
Biggest achievement of this episode: finally understood the relationship between Yong Qing and You Qian. Haha kidding. I thought this episode was not bad. I probably won’t get drama blues at the end of this drama, but it’s kind of a pleasant watch – not frustrating, hilarious at times, and moves along quite fast.
Still liking this drama so far. Now that the second female lead has appeared, maybe it will add chaos, conflict and drive into the plot!
It has been some time since I’ve done recaps on a Taiwanese drama, and I really hope this drama won’t be a disappointment! (I felt like TW dramas were in a slump for such a long time – where were all the good old idol dramas of the past??)
