@angelangie Hi, if I can trouble you...may I please pick your translating brain and ask you a question about ep 12? :D
 

Spoiler

At 20:00 - 21:32 XMM is writing LYN’s name in the night sky, when LYN writes, does he just write her name or was more added to it? The person who uploaded the translation didn’t  include anything that was written, and I really like it when they put in those minor bits since it adds more understanding to the drama.
Thank you...:)

God the way You Nian looks at Miao2 (swoon) he's so dreamy & I can't believe Kuan Lin's only 18 y.o.:blink: oooh let's not forget his smile:kiss_wink: another thing I appreciate about You Nian is he is genuinely amused by Miao2, probably finds her adorable. Unlike Playful Kiss where the male lead keep calling the female lead stupid tsk<_< The theme song is real pretty~ 

    It's funny how opposite their parents are LoL! You Nian's dad is against him taking the arts (architecture) while Miao2 mom is against her being an arts major ha. Meanwhile his mom & her dad are super supportive. How is it Miao2 lil sis is pretty & she's...not? It's like She Was Pretty. C-Dramas tend to spoil by revealing too much in end credits eheheh. So later on Miao2 will go through a transformation, she's already with braces:D

Thanks for tagging me :)  I'm not sure about this one as I don't like dramas where girls change themselves for a guy.

Why oh dear GOD why must they always style the female lead like this LoL!?:crazy:

 

I can't get past how she looks like a cross between a mouse & a chipmunk ha-ha!:w00t: I do like how the male lead is kind to her - thank goodness, although it's mistaken identity again:rolleyes: like how it is in Go2 Squid & Gank Your Heart.

Hi @Jafstar

Like in "She Was Pretty", Reba was styled with curly hair (what's wrong with curly hair LoL?!) freckles & she look fine to me LoL.

 

I just think it's offensive is all (shrug) Then again I'm a sucker for these kinds of dramas but honestly it gets repetitive after awhile.. The female lead is always naive, plain looking etc while the male lead is aloof & most times mean. So it's nice to see that he's kind to Miao2.. eventhough she mistook him for the other bad boy, though thankfully she figured it out at the end. I'm glad they didn't drag it out. I just hope she doesn't get too co-dependent on the guy like "Playful Kiss" y'know? 'Cause that's unhealthy..

Anyways, I enjoyed the first ep. so far looking forward to more.

    

I also find it offensive.  These dramas act like curly hair, freckles and glasses make the heroines hideous unloveable freaks of nature.

 

Also have to agree with you I'm getting tired of this formula.  It's nearly always either plain, naive student obsessed with a aloof guy in school or university or naive, clumsy inexperienced woman with aloof, overbearing boss.

I just love it whenever someone agrees with whatever I say LoL! @raziela :tounge_wink: so yea thanks for that :kiss_wink:

 

And IKR!? This must be like the tenth or so C-Drama that deals with the same pairing setup. Like why LoL?! Even the wuxia ones have the same:unamused: It's a powerful male deity meet & falls for sweet but (yes wait for it) plain female fairy/deity:rolleyes: sheesh.

actually she didnt really change for the guy, it was more like she start taking more notes of her appearance than just letting it go......besides the guy seems to be one of the best thing in life for her too....not to mention she actually score better in studying too

 

and also she want to be someone who can measure up and somehow i see this more like the process of growing up :)

Thanks.  I was going by the original plot synopsis but noe I've read your and @Jafstar comments and it seems like she has ambitions, hopes and goals of her own which sounds much better :)

Yes, the impression I have of XMM is she’s perfectly fine in her own skin, whatever she looks like on the outside.
It was the actions of those around her that prompted her to change.

 

****I edited because what I have say may be spoilers for some. Sorry if you already read it before I edited!!!

Spoiler

 

Her Mom wanted her to get braces, however she didn’t want them because she was too focused on enjoying life and eating good food. lol. It wasn’t until she was fully embarrassed in front of her crush, provoked by his friend, that she decided to get braces. This may seem like changing herself for a man, but wouldn’t most people when put on the spot, want to change that source of embarrassment?

Also her friends took her hair style and facial issues into their own hands by doing a forced makeover intervention. XMM was not necessarily in agreement as she was baulking over their choices, saying they ruined her hair and face.

The glasses dropping and cracking was also out of her hands (pun intended), and she didn’t necessarily like the contacts as she was seen always rubbing her eyes from the irritation.

The lovely choice of skin lightening PP was a subtle way of getting XMM to beautify gradually, to the point that she didn’t realize the change until her friend and classmates pointed it out (WOW! :lol: That’s a magical PP!) 

And can I point out, LYN didn’t notice her skin change because he’s more focused on her inner character, not caring for her to outwardly change. (He totally stole that prized lipstick for the prank, taking the choice of her using it for herself or her friends out of her hands completely, and in my view, he did it so that she wouldn’t start to be more pretty! Hahahah)

 

I feel that the production company tries to highlight that change is good. Yes, they subtly showed that when you change your appearance, you can have gains. However they did it in a low-key, graceful way, not over the top, as most mainstream dramas exaggerate. (I hope they take the extra step to show LYN was attracted to XMM since the beginning, that her inner beauty was what made him look her way, not because she matured her looks. That’d be the cherry topping to my cake.)
