I am kind of sad that this thread isn't packed with posts and thoughts about this drama and maybe because I was late in finding it I was hoping to read what others were thinking.  Still since there are only a few pages and I hope some will follow me in finding it in there own time too I will place my thoughts in spoiler to protect their experience...

Spoiler

    After watching the first 14 episodes and because I am a a Shen Yu fan and have loved her other projects I started this drama.  To be honest the story is moving and the characters are believable but what's been so hard for me is seeing Shen Yu in this character holding back her feelings. Giving up so much including her happiness watching her is so hard for me to bare.  I understand the story line of friendship but a part of me wonders at what price does one have to pay for loyalty.  When friendship should work both ways and true friends should be able to see clearly what the other is feeling. 

 

At first I thought why can't she be bold and spunky like I am use to seeing her in character and then I realized she is playing a part following a story and  doing a great job because it's working.  She is being bold in her own way in her willingness to give up and hold back the love she has had in her heart for such a long time. 

 

And why?  Because in her mind there is a greater love than ones own self...:bawling:

This drama didn't get the views it deserved  I am not even sure why.  Maybe because it was more about struggles then fluff.  More about pain than the joys of love.  Yet it had moments of how often we hide in covering up what's real inside and the sacrifices some make for others almost in silence. In giving up even their happiness because of someone they love.  I hope some will still find their way to this drama for it's the heartbreaks that move us to think and feel because the situations seem so real.  The views of family and friends relationships that start and end even those that never had a chance. 

 

Sometimes it's not about the happily ever after it's about the courage in believing it's still out there...

:heart:

The premise sound a lot like that movie "Beaches". It's mostly popular for its theme "Wind Beneath My Wings". However, I find myself despising Qi Yue, and feeling sad for An Sheng who finally gets happiness (or seem to) with Jiu Yue only for that to end in (another) tragedy..:rolleyes: 

I was hoping that she'd find love again with Han Dong but nope he goes after Qi Yue:P I honestly fail to see her appeal. The actress playing her is giving such a flat performance about as flat as her hair!:crazy: 

This drama was also painfully slow for most of the duration, and with lil hope for An Sheng I just can't seem to finish LoL. It's pretty depressing & not as heartwarming for a drama based on sisterhood/friendship...

 

I was impressed by Shen Yue when she grieved over the death of her mom.. that just ripped me apart.. Shen Yue's a great actress, hoping she'd get better projects in the future.

Beaches..the ultimate tearjerker movie

 

Thanks for the review.  It sounds like exactly the kind of drama and characters that will frustrate and annoy me so I will give this a miss.  Thank you for your public service :lol:

Oh please don't take my word for it LoL!

After all you did complete Love Is Deep which is way better than me:D The drama does have some good moments, I just didn't have the patience because I feel for Shen Yue's character so much.

Um...I still haven't finished 'Love is Deep':ph34r:

From your description I am sure I will agree with you so definitely giving it a miss. It's bad enough when you start a drama and get so frustrated. Better for me not to start at all when I have already been forewarned :P

 

On top of that I really dislike Dylan Xiong's acting so I am definitely not interested in watching him as male lead with the two female leads after him.

You haven't!?:blink:

Dylan Xiong's a pretty mediocre actor I agree:P I can't continue Pretty Man 2 because of him but also the plot is kind of meh. Dylan doesn't stay for long on Another Me so don't worry LoL. This drama just feels really one sided like Qi Yue is the lead, while An Sheng is just the supporting character.. eventhough they're both featured prominently on the poster.<_<

 

But as I said, everyone has different preferences. You might enjoy it who knows LoL. I think the major problem with C-Dramas is too many episodes! So they tend to drag the plot thin in order to meet with the length.

:bawling: Don't judge me...Between the doctor's crazy stalker sister and Ding Ding being so wishy-washy I had to take a break and I still haven't picked it back up :ph34r:

He is such a mediocre actor and he has zero charisma onscreen and he isn't even good eye candy.  He always looks like he is about to cry or is confused.  There are better looking actors with acting skills as weak as his :lol:

I'm surprised considering Shen Yue is the bigger star.  I've read some more reviews similar to yours so you're definitely not alone with this opinion about the drama.

I totally agree about too many episodes. Many C-dramas that would benefit from a tighter plot and a lot fewer episodes.  So many C-dramas start off with promise but then drag on and on needlessly.

I won't:D and it's fine to take a break but I'd drop it if I were you;) I guess Shen Yue wanted to explore different roles. Which is great & good for her but her role here is unfair & so pitiful..:(
