This drama is based on a film starring Kris Wu. The film had a crappy ending but if you search on Youtube another ending for the film can be found and it was a happy one.
I have to say, I have not seen any of Elvis Han’s work before but isn’t he fit?!!! Anyway, I like the beginning episode. The younger selves of the characters are super-imposed in the modern day life, which made the younger days the more sweeter and the modern time the more intriguing.
Anyway, Yun Jin is now a very able office director and can take everything under her stride including a jealous wife of her boss, who was barking up the work tree.
It seemed that she got it on with Cheng Zheng but somehow they broke up. But he is back, stalking her and he is a high-powered businessman.
They first met in high school. Though they belonged to the same school, it was when she was putting books on shelves that he fell in love with her.
Yun Jin comes from a poor family, her father was bedridden. With his incessant cough, it was hard for Jin to study.
She set her heart into studying science but her grade is atrocious. As she had promised her father that she will study science, she was trying her hardest to study for it despite her homeroom teacher telling her that she was not suitable for science.
It was luck that she found a part-time job in a bookshop which enabled her to find time to study and get away from the worried from home.
At present time, her old schoolmates are getting married and she had been invited.
Cheng Zheng seemed to show his feelings for her by insulting her, calling her stupid when they were still in high school. But at the same time, he was so attentive towards her.
In the end, she asked him if he could tutor her in math.
She went to the wedding with her best friend from high school, who is now a doctor. She was expecting to see Cheng Zheng but he was no show.
