no....he didnt do that to gain her trust....he did it because he is also unsure of his own heart....

 

he didnt knew that whether he like her because of her....or because he had came to rely on her for his 'cure' or possible cure.....

I totally agree about how good it is that WQ's illness is treated like a real one in the drama and we see how smart and sensible ZS can be as she actually researches and devises a treatment plan.  It's little touches like this which make the drama so enjoyable to me.

 

It's so funny seeing how WQ/ZS are basically a married couple without realising it.  Especially when WQ phoned her to come home for dinner and Fei Fei filmed their conversation and ZS was acting like a happy little newlywed housewife:lol: The roomates have such a good friendship and it's so wonderful how supportive they were.. I'm always happy to see strong female friendships in dramas! The texting at the cinema was so funny and did you notice that they had moved closer the second time at the cinema so ZS treatment plan was working.  Love these little details in the show! 

 

PA Wei An too is always in the background smiling fondly at the two of them. SO glad WQ at least had him all this time.

 

I feel like there hasn't been enough Ning Fei these last few episodes though.  I especially miss his and ZS adorable big sister/little brother interactions. 

 

Bit of downer that WQ's horrible mother was back in these episodes.  I really don't enjoy the scenes because of how frustrating the mother's character is, the slimy uncle and also the business stock talk is kind of dull.

 

Watched it now and it was very cute especially how much she subconsciously trusts him ^_^  However, the senior classmate is creeping me out-slashing the picture of ZS was too violent and creepy:ph34r:

Yes- Having ZS research and make a treatment plan was great because it reflected how a normal person would react. I'll agree with yiu that this is one of the things I am loving about the drama in these later episodes.  We get to see ZS basically behaving like a normal person and not being the usual "cute but dumb" type of character who doesn't have any common sense. If only we could have seen more of these type of behaviors earlier in the drama instead of waiting until the last 8 episodes. But then I've always wanted the storyline to be more of a "friends to lovers" type of storyline  where ZS was helping WQ to cure his illness and they gradually fall for each other rather than what we got in the beginning. I am still frustrated that ZS didn't find out the truth until around Ep. 19, I thnk it was? So much wasted potential because these last 10 episodes or so have been so good. It's too bad we couldn't have seen more of this for the majority of the drama.

 

Yeah, the friendship between the 3 roommates has been wonderful in this drama. The texting at the movies was hilarious and I did notice how FF and BQJ were getting closer to ZS and WQ seats at the 2nd time, showing the successful progress of the treatment plan.

 

Ning Fei character has been on the backburner these 2 episodes. Hopefully, he will be more present for these last 5 episodes. Both side couples didn't have much screentime lately, which is a shame. 

 

I was also surprised when senior classmate got violent and slashed the painting. It was a jarring moment that was out of character with the overall light tone of the drama.

I hv yet to watch the subbed episodes of 24 & 25 coz I watched it raw after finishing 22 & 23.  Curiosity kills:tounge_wink:

But we have to say it's ZS who is slowly falling for WQ.  WQ is already in love with her.  In one of the recent episodes we see WQ talk to himself "you have returned my money, what about my love?" when ZS returned the money he gave to return back her dad's debts.  I think she is afraid to tell WQ coz maybe she feels it's shameless to express her love for WQ, immdly after being rejected by MC. 

The bed scenes were cute and how ZS is getting used to it sleeping next to him. 

The funny scene I liked is after the alarm, she is waking him like his wife and sleeps again, he also does the same.:kiss_wink:

The bed scenes are surely funny.

I did catch that line by WQ "you have returned my money, what about my love?"  which surprised me, but I was under the impression that this dialog was more of a Chinese saying/proverb rather than his actual feelings. For me, both WQ and ZS are still trying to figue out how they feel about each other, but I agree with you  that they are slowly falling for one another.

Oh my gosh...I think I will like this!

So many CDramas out right now and a lot are truly interesting.

I'm just a bit bothered by SOME the guys jackets/ coats...he looks like a concierge for an upscale hotel.

Ok, drama fans, don't jump down my throat, it's just my initial impression from some of the stills.

I'm not familiar with the actors so I look forward to fresh new talent and faces.

@ElleSor Welcome to the forum! You will definitely like this rom com! There are a lot of cute C Dramas out at the moment. I'm having a difficult time finding  C Dramas with subs, so I was so glad to find out that About Is Love is being subbed. You are not alone about the costumes for Wei Qing's character. I don't like the suits and jackets he wears as CEO either. They are very weird. He looks much better when he is dressed casually in jeans and sweatshirt.

This has been my problem since it first ended airing. :sweatingbullets: After watching it raw, I’ve become numb from the frustration of waiting for the subs. Though I am doing my best to watch other stuff in the meantime. Will have to binge watch again the entire thing after it’s complete. :D

 

@Table122000 re: what you said, “We finally get to see Zhou Shi being confident” and “how much Wei Qing has changed.

This is why I love this story so much. We see their growth and transition of indifference, disgust, irritation, anger, etc to friends/romantic interest with dependence, trust, faith and a growing awareness of each other’s strengths, abilities and attraction. It never gets old.

 

Apologizes if my words are a bit jumbled...it’s 1 am and my eyes seem to want to do something other than stare at my computer screen. :sleeping:

@Jafstar Your words are fine. I understand what you are saying and I totally agree with you. You said it better than I could.  

And about the subs...Yes! it is so hard waiting for the episodes! I am also going to binge watch it when the subs are fininshed.

because WeiQing deny it when she asked him before.....so she doubt him and then she wasnt sure about herself either.....the same goes to WeiQing till later on :D 

 

I don't remember Zhou Shi asking Wei Qing about his feelings for her. Which episode was that scene in?

 

Aargh! I am so frustrated waiting for the subs for the next episodes. I was really hoping that a new episode would be posted this weekend, but it wasn't. I saw a notice on the Productive Procrastination Facebook page that they have completed subbing for Ep. 27-30, but are still working on Ep. 26. She had a poll on the Facebook page about if people wanted her to just go ahead and post  Ep. 27-30 now or wait for Ep. 26. I voted to go ahead and post 27-30 now and 26 later, but surprisingly the poll results are currently 50/50. So go over to the Facebook page and cast your vote. 

Sadly, it looks like we will have a longer wait for these final 5 episodes.:cry::bawling:

Yes, totally agree that this show is great. Not so angsty that I want to tear my hair out.

Just the male lead acting out a bit but tolerable.

No manhandling, just snuggling and a little awkwardness. 

I like how WQ developed here.

Things are kind of crazy for me the last few days, but I have finally been able to watch the remaining episodes of 26-30 and I'll be posting my thoughts here as I have time. 

 

EP. 26:

 

 After having the wedding dream, I think Zhou Shi is now afraid that she's getting in too deep with her relationship with Wei Qing. What is reality and what is fantasy brought on by their situation?  She's now actively trying to break the ties, but I don't think she will be able to because the big difference between her current situation and her previous relationship with Ming Cheng is that WQ actually returns her feelings, even if he hasn't admitted it yet.   We see at the end of Ep. 26 how much Wei Qing is missing her already in just one night apart.

 

So, Xiao Fei apologized to WQ for falsely accusing WQ of killing his cat. ( Although I felt it was a very low key and off the cuff apology, so I hope Xiao Fei gives a proper apology later.) I think he said the Uncle actually killed the cat? but for some reason he put the blame on WQ. I hope we get a better explanation about what actually was going on during the time when Xiao Fei  & WQ were living together with WQ parents.

 

The mother continues to annoy me with her attitude. I have to say, I didn't really understand all of the Yun Ma shares shennanigans going on,  and frankly the corporate Yun Ma Arts stuff is getting a bit boring for me at this point, so I'll just take it that Wei Qing wins his objective against Ms. Xue and got the gallery back for his mom.  

 

Things I likeed in this episode: the solid girls' friendship continues, Zhou Shi continues to behave like a woman with normal intelligence.

actually XiaoFei did told WeiQing the reason.....as all these while he knew that it was the Uncle that kill the cat and not WeiQing, however he did it to put a block in between the parents and WeiQing.

 

as he was worried that the parent will not care for him and if he put a lil something in between the parent and WeiQing then they will care for him more and that they wouldnt send him back to the orphanage....

 

he told WeiQing when he did it....all he thought about was just to borrow the parent for a bit so that he could get on his feet.....

WTH, really!!!! such a scumbag fellow.  How can he do this, when he is this young and think of doing things like this.   AWWW, now i am feeling bad for WQ. But the dad did know that he killed the cat, isnt it?  why he did not acknowledge the fact and had to do this to WQ?  Both are bad parents.  Atleast the dad realised in the end that what he did to WQ was wrong and handed over  Yun Ma to WQ.  

 

I have  not watched the finale episodes yet.  You know when you have this feeling to not let go off something precious you like so much. I am in that state.  Even though i finished all the episodes raw, i cannot get to watch this cute drama with subs and let it go off.  :wub:

one of the reasonwhy XiaoFei seems to be an introvert was probably because he felt guilty to begin wtih and sorry for the things he done towards WeiQing....he had tried for many reason to reach out towards WeiQing and he was probably scare.....

 

however at least he came out in the open towards the end and tell WeiQing why he did it....i guess we can excuse him.....however the parents should have known better especially the mother....

How did everyone feel about the final episode? I was happy in the episodes leading up to the finale that WQ finally confessed and also we saw some realistic conflict for ZS over her feelings for WQ and the carer role she had taken on. I  was really enjoying this drama but I felt the final episode was a letdown and all over the place for our lead couple tbh...:confused:

The final episode was a little underwhelming for me too. It felt a bit rushed, even though the drama had plenty of time to wrap up everyone's storylines properly at 30 total episodes. Zhou Shi running away and refusing to confront Wei Qing once she arrived in America felt out of character. I also felt that the drama did not convey the passage of time very well, which added to my feeling that events were rushed along.  There were some things left unclear, such as did WQ really reconcile with his mother?  She left the hospital after the conversation with WQ where she told him she blamed him for "taking his father away from her and leading him to die in a foreign country". It was unclear to me whether she recognized her wrong way of thinking and was now ready to repair their relationship or not.  Also, did Xiao Fei ever really sincerely apologize to Wei Qing and confess all of the lies he told about  Wei Qing to Wei Qing's mother?  It was unclear to me if  the mother ever knew how Xiao Fei had wrongly accused WQ , that WQ was innocent all along.  Also, I thought Ms. Xue had been defeated in Ep. 26 when WQ had that showdown with her that said his mother would remain as director of the Yun Ma Galleries, but then she's back all of a sudden in the final episode. Did Zhou Shi ever say the words "I love you" to Wei Qing? He said he wanted an answer to his question when he returned from the USA, but did she ever actually say the words? or give a direct answer to his question?  I guess she agreed to be his girlfriend regardless. The final pool scene did feel random to me as well. I didn't get why the final conversation had to be in the water, but OK. 

Things that I liked about the final episode: I liked that each couple got a happy ending, and we had a nice final kiss scene between our main leads.  I liked that ZS was shown to still have  a normal intelligence when she figured out how to use Xiao Fei's contract to save Yun Ma Art.

Ep. 27:

Loved it! We get to see a jealous Wei Qing and I am always up for that. Serious chat between Wei Qing and Zhou Shi about the meaning of their relationship. I think Zhou Shi said she liked him as a man, but it was a bit unclear. Then we get scene of Wei Qing and the pretty dermatologist, which was great. Loved their conversation and liked that WQ was able to realize that there are other women/people who he is not allergic to, Zhou Shi is not the only one. With this knowledge, he was able to realize that he loves ZS for who she is as a person and not just because he can touch her without getting sick. WQ accepted his feelings for ZS.

 

Ep. 28-29:

Loved Bai Qin Jing these episodes! Her character is so smart (except how could she not know that her "online friend" was Ming Cheng?) 

The engagement was sudden for me, and semed a bit weird to be honest, but I just rolled with it. Fei Fei and Xiao Fei officially became a couple and shared a satisfying kiss at the hospital! Kudos to both actors for that lovely kiss scene. Loved that Fei Fei took charge of the  "rescue" of  Xiao Fei when he hurt his leg. When she shoved WQ aside so that she could carry XF-:lol::D

Things between our main couple felt somewhat dragged out these 2 eps, but we did get to see Senior Campus Beauty get her comeuppance when WQ rejected her and used his illness to get rid of her.:lol: 

 

Ep. 30:

Kind of underwhelming end for our main couple, but I loved that all 3 couples got a happy ending and Wei Qing cured himself of his illness once he investigated his father's death and learned what happened that night, and then was able to come to terms with everything.  Liked that Zhou Shi kept her intelligence until the very end here. And we got a nice final kiss between our two leads. Some loose ends were not wrapped up, but you can't have everything I guess. 

 

Series Review:

 

Interesting characters and nice performances by an engaging young cast help to make this light, breezy watch a fun time. 3 cute couples each with a different love story, strong female friendships, a female lead who stands up for herself, along with her 2 awesome gal pal roommates are the strong points for me of this drama.  The second half was way better than the first half when the drama pulled away from the tropes and the cliches to allow some nice individual character development to occur and the story was much more interesting. Main female lead got a brain in the final 8 episodes, and I only wish she could have been that way for most of the drama.  I wish we could have had more development of the 2 side romances instead of some of the repetitive filler, but it is what it is.  Everyone was pretty to look at and gave a nice performance.  Loved the 3 couples and now want to see more of all the actors in other projects. (Yan Xi is my new crush!) Drama wasn't perfect, but I found it an addictive watch. Definitely a "binge watch" type of drama for when you want a nice, light rom com.

That's how I feel like the final episode just seemed to waste a lot of time for the OTP.  What was with the dumb shenanigans with ZS going all the way to the US to just follow him around and them not to interact.  Pointless!

The final random scene at the pool.  It's literally never mentioned before about that moment or day being soooo special to her but suddenly ZS is saying she goes there on the anniversary every year. And it just looked so awkward the whole conversation and kissing taking place in the public pool with everyone watching.

Like you said the situation with his mother was never really resolved. 

Also the awkward revelation of WQ having recovered from his allergy in the airport car park was so meh.  This was a huge part of the plot and we discover he is healed because he says an awkward hello to some random little girl, ZS hugs him...and then they go back to arguing about their relationship again.  He seemed to reach some kind of breakthrough about the scientific cause with the dermatologist lady he also wasn't allergic to but it seems like that didn't really mean anything.

Also they had a big kissing session in the hospital bed in episode 29 and then no discussion or reaction or anything. It was as it never happened!

I felt like the other two couples got better endings and scenes in this final episode than the central couple.

Exactly! I agree with you. The whole scene of ZS going to USA was a pointless waste of time for the OTP when there could have been some good dialogues if the writers had been better. Final pool scene: you nailed it-so awkward and random! I'll agree the revelation that he cured himself of his allergy was definitely too low key for such an important moment to the drama. The writers really messed up on the Wei Qing/Zhou Shi storyline for this final episode. Very disappointing. 

 

In regards to the scientific cause of the allergy:  I think the whole point of that scene was to show that even though WQ had this illness,  there were still certain people he was not allergic to and the reason he wasn't allergic to them was because they did not have the particular blood protein (or whatever it was). The writers were trying to make a plausible reason as to how he could be with other girls, and not just with ZS. Therefore Zhou Shi was not the only person he could touch and he did have options and he did have the chance for a relationship with other girls, starting with the pretty dermatologist. He could leave ZS and be with the dermatologist if he wanted to.  To me, this was the "breakthrough" you are mentioning. Wei Qing gains the knowledge that Zhou Shi is not his only option, his only hope, like he previously believed. He can be with other girls, like the pretty dermatologist.  He realizes that he loves Zhou Shi as a person and for who she is, not because she is the only one he can touch.  He is now able to accept his feelings for Zhou Shi and decides to pursue her.  The scientific cause was just to serve this plot point.  His allergy itself was stated to be psychosomatic from the very beginning by the psychologist treating him.  The cure for his illness always lay in Wei Qing resolving his psychological trauma, but it wasn't until he met Zhou Shi that Wei Qing felt comfortable enough or trusting enough to try and work through his issues and his trauma. He had been holding himself back before as evidenced by the fact the psychologist doctor said he had refused to try hypnosis for years after she first suggested it.  

 

I had almost forgotten the WQ/ZS kiss in Ep. 29- yeah, what was that all about? What a waste of a potentially good scene.

 

Agree with you that both side couples got a much more satisfying ending than our main couple.

He can be with other girls, like the pretty dermatologist.  He realizes that he loves Zhou Shi as a person and for who she is, not because she is the only one he can touch.  He is now able to accept his feelings for Zhou Shi and decides to pursue her.  The scientific cause was just to serve this plot point.  His allergy itself was stated to be psychosomatic from the very beginning by the psychologist treating him.  The cure for his illness always lay in Wei Qing resolving his psychological trauma, but it wasn't until he met Zhou Shi that Wei Qing felt comfortable enough or trusting enough to try and work through his issues and his trauma. He had been holding himself back before as evidenced by the fact the psychologist doctor said he had refused to try hypnosis for years after she first suggested it.  

 

I had almost forgotten the WQ/ZS kiss in Ep. 29- yeah, what was that all about? What a waste of a potentially good scene.

 

Agree with you that both side couples got a much more satisfying ending than our main couple. 

Thanks for sharing your thoughts about the scientific cause for the allergy. Your explanation makes sense.  I might have overthought the scientific explanation.  As you pointed out that wasn't the point of the scene.

 

It was disappointing to see them drop the ball for ZS and WQ in the final episode when they had done such a good job with developing them for most of the drama.  They could have just had the two of them being loved up for most of the spisode and we would have been happy rather than the disjointed half-baked mess we did get.
