In wanting to respect those whom haven't started this drama yet and in my desire to share that it's packed with emotions and small stories within a story.  That lead even the viewer an opportunity to reflect and remember.  To think before you speak, to never judge without knowing, to never give up no matter how long it takes. 

Most of all that love given even in silence to someone whom seems unreachable.  Isn't a sign of weakness, but rather strength in following ones own heart in never giving up the hope that he or she will finally see you...

The Trailer/videos used here is the other adaptation which is being showed/aired in Netflix. And I personally considered it as a hidden gem of a show. MDL Link -> https://mydramalist.com/28323-unrequited-love . I heard the book author of this is also active in the production/script of this show. This is the third part of the Trilogy (My Huckleberry Friends, With You, Unrequited Love) by Ba Yue Chang An. If you want badass(goodly written) of a female lead, watch this show.

 

This adaptation where Hu Yi Tian is the main lead is not released yet. MDL Link -> https://mydramalist.com/32445-unrequited-love

So true I was sitting here thinking how sad it is that more people have not watched it or joined this thread it's a story so worthy to be shared with others and written about.  Breaks my heart...

The show suffered from production issue iirc, the previous director abandoned the project or it wasn't satisfactory and he quit, and the author had to take over and take additional scenes.

 

I read the book, and it was my least favourite of the three, largely because of the wishy washy male lead, and some rather melodramatic tropes. However, I loved the writing and I quite liked the female lead and some very nuanced  I was cautiously optimistic about this show. 

 

The end result is...it stuck fairly close to the book, the closest of three trilogy. But it had IMO way too many love triangles, and supporting characters that sometimes it felt like it lacked focus. Mostly the drama just underwhelmed me, I think it's rather hard to have slice of life drama, because you have to keep the audience attention, but not overuse dramatic tropes, and I think it failed. Some of the more dramatic scenes felt flat for me, some of them passed b without much fanfare.

 

My favourite bits and I think the best bit were straight out of the book, and rather focused on the feelings. Which make sense, since that's what the author excelled at, a lot of people had unrequited love and it resonated with them.

 

......oh wait this is Hu Yi Tian's version's thread. lol.  HYT's version is a completely new story, something about start up iirc, which is kind of questionable? I quite like him in Go Go Squid though.

I am really confused because there seem to be different stars featured in the pictures and promotional materials as the lead couple.  Are there two different adaptations of this  story?  One starring Hu Yi Tian and one without?  Could anyone explain, please?

Yes there are two adaptations, the posters posted here is the other adaptation where HYT is the main lead, which is not aired yet. It seems like it will be airing by 2020.

 

The videos, trailers are from the 2019 adaptation and was aired this month by Netflix.

 

The OST posted above, is also from the 2019 adaptation, but the picture used in the MV is from the other adaptation (2020).

Thanks so much for the explanation.  How odd they would make two drama adaptations so close together.

Thanks for the in-depth review.  I was surprised we hadn't heard more about it as the other two dramas in the trilogy were received so well but it sounds like this isn't the same calibre as My Huckleberry Friends or With You.

Does anyone know where to find the painting which was made by Luo Yang? It's being showed in the end of episode 21 :D
It's such a beautiful piece I need to know the name!

Caught this on Netflix yesterday and binged watched it. I was surprised at the lack of love for it but I imagine that the leads aren't well-known (or acting powerhouses) so the word didn't get around. 

I have to say that this was largely enjoyable except for the frustration of watching the leads and other supporting couples struggling over poor communication and honesty. It's realistic enough though to warrant continued interest.

It's the show that made me think deeply about different kinds relationship dynamics in a way not many romantic shows do. I wasn't depressed by it either like the last couple of Jung Hae-in outings. Whatever its flaws, it felt authentic.

 

It was a happy ending for the leads although I wished that they didn't saddle Baili with the possibility of reuniting with her first love.
