Review:
Every since watching this drama I’ve become a fan of Ruby Lin. Although her acting in her various works are not always consistent, I felt that she did very nicely in this drama. Although this was a Shanghai drama, I felt that there were many elements of Taiwanese drama incorporated in here. Overall I really liked the mood created by this drama but there were many aspects about the story that could have been better. It’s been awhile since I’ve watched this drama so I can’t remember much of the details about the other characters.

You can stop reading here if you think what I will say might give any near spoilers.

I’m really not sure which drama came first, this or Sound of Silence, but they really seemed similar in the aspects of the plot. The female actress plays a role where she has some bodily defect, in Ruby’s case, her eyes, and the male lead had some sort of terminal illness. The story is a bit cliche but I think the drama really evokes emotion that other dramas lack.

4/5
