After a long week of working on my research, I finally took the weekend off and the best way for me to relax is to watch a drama or to read a book, both of which I did. After two long sleepless nights and a dozen cups of coffee, I finished about 3 dramas and one of them is this gem of a drama that I found. Usually, before I watch a drama, I see a little snippet of it online and that lures me to check out the drama but with this one, I found it accidentally and after a few episodes I was hooked.
This is one of those dramas that should come with a diabetes warning because it is so sweet but not cringey, I mean I have watched a lot of dramas attempt to be sweet but it just ends up coming off as cringey. without further ado, let’s get into it…

Here we follow a group of friends as they go through life, from highschool till some of them found the love of their lives and got married, however how attention is on Can Can and Tian Ye (who are also in another drama together that I am loving, Make sure to check out MY GIRL). At the start of this drama Can Can is in love with Tian Ye’s friend who is also the smartest guy in the school, while Tian Ye is the bad boy of the school and he has his charms. He thinks that Can Can is doing everything to get him to notice her but when he finds out that she likes his friend, not him that makes me realize that he has genuine feelings for her and he is not willing to let her go.
Then they get into university and their connection strength, however, she is yet to start having feelings for Tian Ye until she begins to feel that he is reliable and he is always there when she needs him. Now Tian Ye’s friend Jia Ze has feeling for her after all these years but Can Can is conflicted because of the budding feeling she has for Tian Ye, soon she had to pick between the two of them and as expected she picks Tian Ye much to the heartbreak of Jia Ze.
There is also the side story of one of the girls in the friend group who was in love with their music teacher in high school who I think left them to pursue a postgraduate degree in the university that she is now enrolled in. She still has feelings for him but all her hopes her dashed when she finds out that he is in love with another person. She was heartbroken but she moved on.
This drama isn’t one that you have to worry about spoilers for because I just knew all that was going to happen but I still watched it all because it was just so cute and I can tell that I will be watching it again sometime soon. It is just so fun to see this group of friends grow together, learn to stay apart, rebuild relationships, get heartbroken, and grow up. I hope you check it out.
They got married
I gave this drama 8.9 out of 10 stars
Thanks for watching
