On a pleasantly cool Halloween night I happen to be reading a MARS manga at a friends house after a long labor of trick or treating. She asked what it was about, and as I explained its awesomeness as enthusiatically as a mormon missionary on his first discussion (btw.. not mormon) she said the magical words;
"Wasn't there some TV show like that? But in like some foreign language on cable?"
I stared at her incredulously not wanting to believe it but feeling my chest swell up in excitement.
So all my efforts (and sleep) were donated for the next several days in ordered to find this spectacularly "unreal" rumored show. It was found, I was hooked, and now.. here we go...
Han Qi Luo,an extremely shy art student went to the same college as Chen Ling,a popular play boy. By chance one day they met at a park when CL asked HQL for direction to a hospital to visit his friend who was injured in a bike racing incident. Hurriedly HQL drew him a map, unknowing that she was drawing on the back of one of her sketches. She ran off before he could thank her. He then noticed the sketch of a mother holding a baby and was touched. In school HQL was sexually harrassed by a teacher and CL came to her rescue. They began to grow fond of each other but each of them had a secret past that needed to be addressed and overcome before they could accept and love one another freely.

This drama is probably one of the most touching dramas out there. Such an odd couple that haelps each other through each of their own breaking points is something we all want. Acting was great all around and who wouldn't want Zai Zai as an all around biking bad boy. :D
I recommend this drama to any and all.
