I don’t have a lot to say about this drama because I admit I skimmed through it a bit. Skimming through (and having seen the original Korean drama that it’s based off), it was enjoyable, if overly melodramatic (but that was kind of expected). I really only watched for Deng Lun and cute family cuteness — both of which definitely delivered — but it was a decent drama and a capable adaptation overall. I found the evil female second lead a lot more of a bitch and a lot more realistically acted than in the original drama (the actress in the original overacts so much), although I found Guo Guo’s adopted mother equally if not more frustrating than in the original. Good for a long, melodramatic family drama but not one I’d watch in full again. I did, however, make a series of gifsets featuring Deng Lun’s character Li Yun Kai.
Overall: 2.5/5 stars
For a family drama: 3.5/5 stars
Deng Lun and Li Yun Kai: 5/5 stars
