Review:
This drama has all the fun and not so fun tropes. Contract relationship and falling in love for real switched identities and bad sibling exposing the secret, annoying SLs who can’t move on, and cool best friends of the leads falling in love and helping the couple. The second leads and the sister are super crazy so fast forward them if you like.

Super love Gu Xicheng and Sun Yanxi. They are so cute together!! They were supportive of each other. And we later find out they had a childhood encounter too.

“No matter what happened before, and for whatever reason you came to me, my feelings have never changed a bit. Please trust me too. I love you.”

Xicheng to Yanxi

From now on, I’ll love her, spoil her, respect her and care for her. Whatever difficulties and challenges we may encounter in the future, I will always cherish her and see her as my life.

Xicheng to Yanxi

The romance of the two best friends were also funny!

The mischievous grandma is sweet unlike the usual dramas.

On the other hand, the SML and SFL were so clingy and annoying!! I thought Nangong was an ex gf but turns out it was all one sided! And she was not even pretty!!! I’m happy that Yanxi stood up to her and didn’t cower with fear. I’ve never seen SLs as psychotic and deluded as them. I couldn’t even care what happened to them. They showed Boya’s fierce and undying love (or obsession?) for Nangong to explain his actions, but I still didn’t find it satisfying or justifiable.

The real and new face of He Jinxi was ugly. Inside and outside. I can’t imagine why she thinks she deserves everything that Yanxi has when she didn’t even work hard for them. I like what Gu Xicheng said that she could never be Yanzi because they are not the same people. Yanzi is nice, sweet and hard working that’s why everyone loves her while Jinxi is so horrible, bullying and blackmailing her own sister and mother. I can understand how sad and unloved she must have felt all these years since it seemed like everyone favored Jinxi. But its also probably her attitude and personality that turned off a lot of people.

Overall, even at 24 episodes, this drama was so light and fun and easy to watch.

Rating: 8.5/10
