Romance, Dance

Li Tian Ai lives together with her brother Li Xiang and barely manage to get by. Ever since she was born, her mother and brother supported her fully in become a dance but she never knew why. No matter how little money the family had, they always let her continue dancing. Xiao Ai enjoys dancing as well but because of her poor background, her basic form is not perfect but she has innate talent. Her greatest idol is Emma, who is a professional ballet dancer who became famous overseas.

One day, while Xiao Ai hurries toward her ballet audition, she sees a man standing at the top of a tall building who seems to be ready to commit suicide. Disregarding her audition, she pushes through numerous guards to get to the roof and stop the man, whom she later finds out is Benson, the CEO of a very large corporation. Little did she know that her idol Emma was Benson’s ex-girlfriend. This fateful meeting sets off a chain of events that would forever change their lives.

Why did Li Xiang and his mother support Xiao Ai so forcefully to learn ballet? What happened between Benson and Emma in the past? Could Li Xiang have something more than brotherly feelings for his younger sister? Will Xiao Ai ever dance on stage with Emma?

I only decided to watch this series because of the actress who played Xiao Ai. Although I have not seen her in any other dramas, I’m a real sucker for characters like her. Her innocence and innate talent for dancing are both very attractive.

The acting done by the male cast was utterly disappointing, well, let’s not say disappointing. I thought it was horrible. It’s a Chinese drama so they should actually try to get actors who can speak Chinese fluently. I felt that the character of Benson was extremely mis casted. I guess in Mainland dramas it is not uncommon for the male leads to be a bit weird, but I thought this was really weird. He didn’t suit the role at all. I felt that he wasn’t suitable as an actor as well. It was really awkward how the drama tried to use so much English. As for the actor who played Li Xiang, I won’t really comment too much in detail. He was in many Taiwanese dramas such as Green Forest and Only You, I felt that he was much better in this drama than his other works, but then again, I usually see him as a side character.

I really loved the theme song and ending song of this drama that I went out of my way to look for them.
