      I love Dilraba dearly but Huang Jingyu is such a huge turn-off.
      Tried watching a bit but then I couldn’t stomach watching him anymore knowing all the terrible stuff he’s done…
      Will wait for Dilraba’s next drama instead…

      What did I miss? I thought he was known as a pretty good actor.

        He’s an abuser and beat up his ex-wife. She suffered some bad injuries (had to be treated in hospital) and got depression because of the abusive relationship. He’s got a lot connections with powerful people in the film industry so everything is pretty well hidden (including the marriage itself which was kept secret in the first place because he didn’t want it to affect his career).

        So even seeing his face makes me sick because domestic violence is evil and abusers are scum.

    Mixed feelings after two episodes. Spoilers ahead, but the verdict is that I’ll keep watching.

    SPOILERS AHEAD

    Their first encounter is not what I expected. I knew it was going to be different from the book when I saw Dilireba in a wedding dress at the beginning. What disappointed me wasn’t the fact that it was different. It was that they made it so typical. In the drama, she finds out her fiance has been cheating on her while they’re doing their wedding photo shoot. She storms off, still in her dress and runs into the male lead as he’s on his motorcycle and they collide on the road. This was actually quite comedic for me. With that said though, I actually did like the banter they had in the drama after their collision. 

    In the book, she accidentally walked into his room at a clubhouse while tipsy and they both mistook each other as escorts. They exchange insults before clubhouse employees realized her mistake and came to fetch her. When she was about to leave, he said she should pay attention to room numbers (she meant to go into 301 but ended up in his room which was 310) because there are some men she can’t afford. She got pissed, pulled out fifty cents from her wallet and stuck it in his bathrobe’s waistband all while insulting him back. “In my eyes, you’re only worth this price.”

    They toned down her sharp tongue in the drama. Zhou Fang ripping her fiance and the other woman to pieces with just words was sooooo satisfying to read.We may still see this happen later in the drama, though.

    Her BFF Qin Qing played by Viann is just how I’d imagined her in the book. Wild but still has a sensible head on her shoulders when time calls for it, loyal and supportive of her friend. Her story with Zuo Yulin caught my attention in the book so I’m looking forward to seeing how that will work out in the drama. From the ending theme video, it looks pretty dramatic and angsty but I don’t remember it being that way. But then again it was more of a side story. 

    As for the male lead Song Lin, I’m hoping Huang JIngyu will bring the character to life.

      Where to find the eng translation for this book??

      Btw after reading your comment.. i’ll give this one a try. HJY’s current scandal made me think to watch this. But this is his professional field.. im trying not to mix it with personal life.

      I also read the book to get some background on the drama however, I think I’ll wait a bit to see how it goes before dedicating time to it.

      SPOILERS AHEAD (about the book)

      The one thing that hung onto me is their first encounter in bed. At first I was ok with it but then I felt like he forced himself onto her and in a sense raped her because she seemed so unwilling. When the female lead said this was business in her head it seemed like the author was making an excuse for the male leads action.

      I found the novel ok and got bored near the end. The main couples interaction had me confused and thinking most of the time is he just forcing himself onto her and she’s just accepting and submitting. I’m not sure so keen to hear someone else’s thoughts.

        SPOILERS

        So I read the book back in Oct/Nov last year so I decided to start the audiobook in lieu of reading it for the second time, and got to their first bed scene today. There wasn’t anything about her saying this is business in her head in that scene. I’m wondering if it’s because of the nature of their relationship? They’re considered friends with benefits so it’s “business” in that sense. Maybe that’s what you’re referring to? Their first bed scene was very brief.

        The ML in the book is pushy, but I do like that FL doesn’t submit to his every request. Like how she totally rejected his business proposal and went with the Su Yushan’s instead. I think ML definitely fell for FL first and tries to be in control of their friends with benefits relationship aka trying to make it into a normal relationship whereas she’s career-oriented and doesn’t want things to change between them.

        Btw the drama is very different from the book. I’m just treating it as a separate story.

    Just watched the first 2 eps, I LOVE IT ALREADY Johnny Huang so hot manly and a good actor, Dilraba is killing it she is so beautiful and Viann playing the beautiful kick butt over protective bestie. So happy they didn’t making these two beautiful actresses play the jealous cliche hater role. Two bad a$$ boss ladies with a great friendship who are there for one another, I Love it.

    Johnny Huang disgusts me. Despite my love for Dilraba I’m not sure I can stomach him in this drama.

    • 13 thoughts on “First Impression: What do you think of Love Designer (Love Advanced Customization) with Dilireba and Huang Jing Yu?

      Exactly my feelings. I love Dilraba a lot so I’ll just have to wait for her next drama.

    To watch this drama at ease, i got to put Johnny Huang’s scandal issue a side… seriously.. Johnny Huang’s character kills me … hahahhahahaha.. Dilraba red lipstick is hot! By the way, did they dubbed her voice? i remember she has a cute voice but in this drama, her voice is a abit mature.

    I like Viann too.. she is awesome bestie ever !!! I can’t wait for the 2nd Male lead to appear.. hahahaha .. rivals !

    From ep 1 till 6 i like them all.. i can’t wait for ep 7!! thank god, it is a daily drama.. i can get all the sweetness and cheesy everyday..
