In the summer of 1995, childhood friends Zheng Ren Wei and Lin Jia En took their college entrance exam. Zheng got into a college in Taipei and was ready to start an exciting life in the big city. Lin, unfortunately, failed the test and was stuck in the countryside. Bored out of her mind, Lin decided to go find Zheng and spend her 4th year of high school in Taipei as well.

I didn't see any thread for this drama and thought it's such a waste. This is the drama that airs after "就是要你愛上我 Just You". The main actress is Kirsten Ren (Taiwanese Band SHE Selina's younger sister in real life) and the main actor is Lego Li (It's been too long since his last drama so not many people know him but he's one of my favorite taiwanese actor.)

This story is set in 1995. While some people compare it with kdrama Reply 1994/1997 series, I think it's more like the Chinese movie "至我們終將逝去的青春 So Young". It focuses on character growth and most of the plot happening in the university campus itself. Highly Recommended if you're tired of Makjang and need a breath of fresh air!

The preview and the stills are looking good and interesting. I have stopped watching Taiwanese drama series for a while, but might tune in for this one. By the way, the main actor, Lego Li is quite good-looking

It's been a long time since I see a well written Taiwanese drama. And this one strike my fancy. The characters are well written for both Jia En and Shan feng... And so far the characters are developing in a very good pace. I'm looking forward to see how JE is going to become as a person....

This is awesome! Similar to many here, it's my new drama crack too. Saw koala recap it on her site and got into it. And now…I. REGRET. IT. SO. MUCH! How do I wait until Friday? I hope someone can help to update regularly for this drama. I'm going to follow koala's recaps, but usually those take a little time for her to complete and being the eager beaver that I am, I'm going to be stalking any page I can find for updates!

I will definitely check this one out for sure but not now, will wait until it has completed airing. Then I can enjoy it in a full run if it turns out good. I hate waiting for an episode every week really frustrating

It's a good drama that I've been enjoying...I've loved Kristen since KO3 so of course I'm watching.  I am looking forward to her character's growth.  I was laughing that they gave up on the obvious pinning of her hair and had her wear a wig for episode three. 
What she said to Liu Chuan at the end of episode three was unexpected...I liked the switch up

I actually didn't like this at first, because the setup in ep1 looked like it would be a typical unrequited love storyline, but I skimmed through it anyway and fell in love with how deftly they handle the issues. I'm so glad they have Jia En grow up so organically, and that they haven't pushed the loveline forward and let the relationships develop slowly.

Miss Koala's recap of Ep3:http://koalasplayground.com/2013/12/05/in-a-good-way-episode-3-recap/

===========================Welcome everyone to the discussion thread!!!Late replies but here's my thoughts..
@99: I actually think that Jia En is the most thoughtfully written by the screenwriters because of her character growth over the three episodes. I love Liu Chuan's character but it's apparent that he is almost perfect as a guy that his character growth is minimal so far but I think whenever he interacts with Jia En, there's more to him than the usual nice guy. It seems that there's something that he can't take off his mind about Jia En, whether it's her lack of independence or her innocence. In the end, he's always worrying about her when she's down.
@fairyep: I know right!? The main couple is too damn cute with sizzling chemistry that always turn me into a rabid fangirl with every single one of their scenes.
@starrytea: I love that fanvideo!!! You're so talented!
@myl: I'll try my best to update this thread as promptly as possible! Miss Koala's recap of this drama makes me so happy as more international viewers will notice this drama and join the love.
@thitu: I know, I also hate the wait for every week but the waiting process is very bittersweet, bitter until the actual broadcast day, sweet when I see some new infos about the drama. So conflicted and really regret that I started watching from ep1... 
@hipployta: This is my first time watching a Kristen's drama, she got a very sweet and natural screen presence. Even though she's green, she never try to overact and that made her character so endearing and naturally adorable (instead of some actress trying to act cute). The Wu Bai concert/motorbike date in ep3 is my favorite scene and I kept rewatching it for countless times like an obsessed person. Hahaha!
@galen15: I'm glad that you start to love it now because it's definitely a drama with natural relationship development and character growth. I didn't fell right hard in love from the very first scene of ep1, it was until when Liu Chuan starts to worry for Jia En who is still waiting for Ren Wei in the rain, that scene just made me a fangirl of the drama. I totally love how Jia En and Liu Chuan don't need any dialogues, only staring at each other is enough to have sizzling chemistry that make me a rabid fangirl.
@fairycutter: Welcome to join us for discussion, the more the merrier. I totally love reading different opinions/insights from different people about this drama.

Thanks to Miss Koala, I've been suckered into watching this and now will have to suffer the weeklong waits between each episode.  ARRGGHHHHHH!

This cast is seriously so adorable!  Love all their behind the scenes...wish there are translations for that.  Especially love this clip.
