  1. How do you not love all the characters in this gem of a drama? I hope I'm not the only one who thinks that they are integral characters who added substance to this drama. I got bored with PYHOMS which got too cringy and way too much ML & FL moments. All the characters here are inter related & well flashed out to portray realistically the aspects on family life ( Guan Chao, step dad and DC the uncle) and friendship (Wuyi & YM). The family dynamic is one of the strongest in a drama I've watched. I haven't read the novel and I wont as I dont have the time to do so. Anyway, I'm absolutely obsessed with this GEM as it is simple yet heartwarming!
  2. No wonder YM is an odd ball. Even if he's a student in the early 2000, I find it odd that he loved the Beatles instead of Jay Chou! Even my ex-students (in their 50s) and daughters (in their 30s) dont listen to their songs. I thought only a grandmum like me would love the Beatles because they were at the peak of their popularity during my high school days. Then again only YM would choose a simple T-shirt and masquerade as John Lennon for the party!
  3. AGREE! Da Chuan is as cute as a Teddy Bear! He's like a dork when in love and looks super adorable. I laughed like a lunatic when he exclaimed gleefully to YM, "It's about time you 2 get together. Otherwise I'll abandon the Drama!" YM as usual showed his deadpan face but was obviously very pleased! NB: Yeah! We're having more Newbies here! WELCOME to the newbies!
  4. Our cold and tsundere YM tries very hard to act and show indifferent towards QY when she showed up in Beijing. But there are countless ways he subtlely shows that he still loves and cares for her. And the writer tackles them hilariously much to our delight! When DC informed him that QY has arrived in Beijing he showed indifference and replied that he didn't want to see her. But quickly objected strongly when was told QY would be staying with DC! On QY's 1st day at work he followed her home in her bus fearing she'd get lost. Then on the bus he protected her from a potential molester! The next morning he woke up early and drove long distance just to pick her up for work. He even bought her breakfast. Awwwwww! Clueless QY was super pleased and gave him a lollipop. Best of all he stayed behind in his car secretly after work waiting for her while sucking on that lollipop and wondering why he was doing that. Earlier he had declined her request to send her home. The long wait resulted in a 100 reminbi car park fees. To cover up for his SECRET of waiting, he mentioned that the car park attendent has problem with his memory! LOLOL! Aiyoh! These 2 playing cat and mouse with their feelings are a delight to watch indeed!
  5. About the German lesson, only YM could pull off such a tease without QY's suspicion. He was obviously LOVING IT when QY repeated the phrase with good pronunciation. He was actually controlling himself and his expression was PRICELESS. YM and his dead pan expression is really KILLING ME in this amazing drama.
  6. The story of the boyfriend is both heartwrenching and cute! LOL! The flashback scene of drunkard YM crying in England was so heartwrenching. Then at his office the scene when his housemate in England made fun of him infront of him , QY and others was hilarious. YM even admitted he cried and stormed off! The BIG REVEAL about the boyfriend totally caught him by surprise but YM being who he is, hid his RELIEF with his poker face! I cracked up when QY chided him for reading her blog without leaving his name. Which made him stormed off in pretence of going to the gents probably to hid his embarassment! The BEST part is when he returned home and gave a GRIN of complete relief & satisfaction! I went bonkers over this scene! Oh! This drama is really driving me crazy!
  7. Besides the cuteness overload moments between our OTP, there are many moments which resonate with real life. I love the "small tiff" QY had with her mum over her constant calling her reminding her about having proper food and rest and the weather. After consulting QC, she apologised to her mum while being caught in the rain. She was crying in the rain while feeling apologetic for being upset with her mum! That really had me crying too. In reality, we do sometimes have little tiffs with our mums. Our YM came over to return a CD. QY mentioned to him she missed her mum and home and wished she hadn't come to Beijing. YM agreed that she shouldn't come before going off to buy medicine. Poor QY cried pitifully after him, "I came because of you!" I teared again. QY and QC conversation about their mum really touched my heart.
  8. That blind date scene is pure gold indeed! I was like a lunatic while watching it! I watched it raw and kept rewatching it with Eng subs late at night not to disturb or get scolded by family members! ZYJ's acting is amazing! Being retired I'm glad I've the whole day to watch this drama at home without disturbing anyone. If I do watch it in public I had to control myself whenever there are comical scenes. Of course, there are countless touching scenes which make this drama so realistic and relatable (being Chinese and coming from similiar background) that it is such a GEM to watch. And I simply dont have the time to high light all the touching moments which are really heartwrenching or heartwarming. @celebrianna, yes, I also share the same sentiments as you regarding those scenes too. Thanks for mentioning. I also LOVE the scene whereby QY told her stepdad the reason why she didn't go to England. Their relationship is such a joy to watch.
  9. Tsundere and Cold YM is the death of me! His expressions are to die for! He and QY are a match made in heaven indeed! I'm now a fan of Zhang Yu Jian! I love our OTP's interraction during high school days but I'm loving their presnt days moment more and more. That "pig" moment is priceless indeed! Only the now more outspoken QY can force the tsundere YM to react in such a way. So now YM is going to realise that his quiet and demure QY has changed. I simply love their cute confrontations! There's so much cuteness overload! The scriptwriter is doing an awesome job as I'm loving every minute and conversation of this GEM of a drama. Every episode is getting better and better and the whole cast is doing an awesome job!
  10. Generally the Chinese are more apathetic in nature. Being a Chinese myself I understand how QY felt and why the others also didn't react. However where were Dachuan and QY's bro? I dont know where you viewers come from. Probably we're too used to watching recent Kdramas whereby the girls are super sassy. As a teacher myself, my students (mostly Chinese) would react similiarly as the drama depicted. Someone would run to report to me. To me this scene and many others are very relatable and realistic. Which is why I love this drama to bits! A HAPPY MOTHERS' DAY TO EVERY MOTHER HERE!
  11. Which is why I find this gem of a drama very realistic and relatable! As a retired teacher who taught for 39years, I can find all the characters here in my teaching career. And those so called bullies characters are actually redeemable later on.
  12. Who else but our green horn Yan Mo who would confess to Qiao Yi by saying, "But you're not an outsider!" and then shyly ran off. Aiyoh! (Chinese expression similiar to Aigoo in Korean.) This grandma was giggling like crazy that her daughter asked her if she's now hooked onto Cdramas. My Chinese has improved a lot since then. Also giggling like a teenager when stoic YM showed his dimply laughter when QY addressed his mum as "mum". I was floored by it as it was the 1st time he'd really laughed! I'm really loving every minute and character of this drama. Oh DRAMA! What have you done to me?
  13. I'm new to Cdramas (only started this Feb) so I'm not familiar with their actors. I'm totally smitten by the actor acting as YM. He may not be as eye candy as Yang Yang of Love 020, Linyi of PYHOMS or Yan Xi of AIL but he is charismatic in his own way. His acting as the nerdy, tsundere & lovelorn character in this drama had me giggling like a teenager again although I'm a grandma of 2! I just cant get enough of this gem of a drama!
  14. @gracebkk it was mentioned in an earlier page that our drama garnered 100 million views within 13 h for its 1st episode. However Alice from Soompi who posted a special about this drama (8 things which will make us fall in love with this drama) also mentioned that viewvership hit 100 million within 13 hour on its premier episode. This drama is really a gem. The plot and setting are really realistic and relatable indeed.
  15. Hooray! I've found this thread at last. Thanks to @sugarplum892 again! A big wave to @pad-hari again. I'm crazy over this drama. IMO I think it is even better than the current popular PYHOMS even though I also love it. The lead guy isnt as eye candy as Linyi of PYHOMS but his "dead pan" face as the blur YM is super cute! The lesd girl is sweet and natural. I simply love all the side characters especially Dachuan & QY's brother. In fact every character has his/her own good quality. BEST of all, unlike PYHOMS the OTP here is already married! Oh! I need to stop gushing over them now as it is bedtime here. To think that I felt like a lovelorn teenager while watching Kdrama School 2017 is embarrassing enough. Now this drama is making me into another giggling teenager again.
