Currently watching the first episode. =D I’ll admit that upon first hearing the news that it would be another ArJoe collaboration, I was…less than overjoyed, lol. Ariel is one of my absolute favorite actresses, and I was concerned that yet another collaboration with Joe Cheng would limit her horizons (I don’t mean that *he* would limit her but that the coupling, repeated in quick succession, would be a career burden on both of them). But I’m not going to judge the drama because of that; after all, they are both talented actors and can create good chemistry. =) So I’m giving it a try.

I like the opening and endings songs (is the ending song by Ariel?!? it sounds like her but I’m not sure^^). Ariel and Joe seem to be acting well so far, and thank God their characters aren’t a XiangQin/ZhiShu repeat. But the cuts and editing are really choppy. It’s annoying. =_= They jump from scene to scene without transition, let a shot continue longer when it should end, end a shot when it should continue, and basically throw everything into an inconsistent pile. Well, maybe they were in a rush. Hopefully it’ll improve as time goes on~~

And I have to mention that it’s so weird to see Zhang Yu Chen (張毓晨) acting as Ariel’s friend. xD In True Love 18 (18歲的約定), Ariel’s first drama, she played Ariel’s teacher and love rival. 0_o Weird contrast. But interesting. Haha. It’s nice to see them collaborating again! I’m also looking forward to Rui Jia’s role. 😉

As for plot…we shall see. I think the biggest problem right now, though, is that editing. Way too distracting, and if it sticks out that much we won’t be able to enjoy the drama if it does turn out to be a good one. Directors, pleeease try to fix it~ =)
