Qiyi describes the plot: Lin Beixing (Zhang Jia Ning), an “experienced girl” who is about to enter her 30s, missed out on achieving her dream of love as her boyfriend, Zhan Yu (Wu Xi Ze), breaks the contract, and her life and work have become a mess. However, not sure if this is the God playing tricks on her, Lin Beixing returned to the age of eighteen. The third year of high school is a nightmare, but Lin Beixing decided to retake the college entrance examination and get rid of Zhanyu, to live anew for herself. However, Lin Beixing’s sweet dream was dashed by a boy called Zhang Wansen (Qu Chu Xiao). The accidental encounter of Zhang Wansen after the college entrance examination became the switch to end Lin Beixing’s time and space journey. Lin Beixing began to investigate the cause of Zhang Wansen’s death and embarked on a difficult journey to save Zhang Wansen. The days in high school were romantic and short, and Lin Beixing’s changes allowed her to reap the beautiful moments that she had neglected. With the arrival of summer, Lin Beixing also found that she not only saved Zhang Wansen, but also saved the boy’s love for her since she was young that is deeper than the sea.
This looks adorable and might just be heart-breaking if the story is tight.
Seeing this picture really cemented the fact that Li Ying is married and with a child. She’s worked hard for years and now has created a family all on her own, and this drama seems to be the perfect representation of her work ethics and personal growth.
I spent the past weekend jumping onboard the Minglan wagon (up to ep 12)! Yay to me! It is indeed slower in pace and conversations tend to drag out between people I don’t want to care much about, but there’s quality and build-up in character and plots. It’s a type of drama that simmers, no need to rush at all. I was watching idly and didn’t start caring until Minglan’s mother met her demise during childbirth. It broke my heart seeing little Minglan running around with her short, clumsy legs trying to get help for her mom. The shot of mom on her deathbed surrounded by her own pool of blood kinda sealed any compassion I could have had for the character of Mistress Lin. She just stood and watched another pregnant woman die! The fact that she went through childbirth before and knew the risks and pain and still schemed til the end….ARG. Redeem her character? NOPE. Solid no from me. Another thing is I see a lot of novel fans upset with Minglan for returning Qi Heng’s affections, but realistically speaking, the Minglan in the novel is not the same as the Minglan in the drama. She’s not a jaded time-traveler who has fine-tuned her heart. Here she is just a normal girl having a handsome and gentle suitor at her door. What’s not to like about the said gentleman? It’s portrayed realistically to me because how many of us could say we married our first love? A life time is a long time and in that time frame, you will like, hate, and love many before your wisdom and maturity set sights on the right man at the right time.
But before that time, let me wallow in the deadliest illness of drama – second lead syndrome. xD
