A Love So Beautiful (Chinese Drama Review)
This is such a cute drama. I have seen about 12 episodes, in which only 9 so far are subtitled in English. Despite the language barrier (can’t understand Chinese), I still found the drama quite engaging. Probably because of the script is well developed plus the fact that the cast is beautiful and handsome. Most of them are newbies, new to the business, which is amazing in itself as they do deliver fine acting. When you have a good line-up of actors, it is usually hard to go wrong.
- Hu Yi Tian as Jiang Chen
- Chen Yue as Chen Xiao Xi
- Wang Zi Wei as Lin Jing Xiao
- Gao Zhi Ting as Wu Bai Song
- Zhang He Hao Zhen as Li Shu
- Sun Ning as Lu Yang
- Lv Yan as Li Wei
I love the main girl, Chen Xiao Xi. She’s so lovely, full of vim. She knows what she wants and goes for it. At the age of 16 she wanted Jiang Chen, the genius boy of her class.
This drama spans 19 years of their turbulent romantic life. Based from the trailers of forthcoming episodes, it will not be all roses all the way through; there are a lot of angsts and buckets of tears!
There are apparently 24 episodes. It is probably divided into 2 series, that is why their is hiatus after episode 12.
By the way, it can be hard to wait for Chinese dramas to be subbed in English, which is rather frustrating sometimes especially when the drama is deemed to be good. I would like, therefore, to thank some hard-working youtube subbers (most of them hold full time jobs and study), who do subtitling in their spare time. I would therefore would like to encourage you to subscribe to their channels to show appreciation.
Chen Xiao Xi was without any qualms in pursuing Jiang Chen. She told him she liked him in which he replied “I don’t like you.” This hardly made Chen Xiao Xi stopped on her track. In fact she researched on the internet how to make someone like you back. So funny. love it.
I love the characters. Chen Xiao Xi is a least a foot shorter than Jiang Chen but somehow they looks so cute together.
This is story about children and parents. Appreciate your parents while you still can.
This episode is about Chen Xiao Xi wanting to be the class monitor.
This episode is cuteness overload. Jiang Chen and Xiao Xi riding the same bike together is just the cutest! It is a bit sad though for the second male lead. He is rather adorable in his own way because he always put Xiao Xi first before himself.. all the time! The main topic of this episode is joining the class debating team.
Episode 11 is a rather sweet. Finally Jiang Chen is showing a romantic interest in Xiao Xi. I wish I understand Chinese so I would have enjoyed it more; nevertheless action speaks louder than words. And it was cute and romantic.
Episode 12, their class was going on a field trip. During the trip Xiao Xi and her friends prepared for her confession again to Jiang Chen. They brought fireworks with them which they would lit up as she was confessing. Unfortunately, it did not go the way it was planned. Another girl was confessing to Jiang Chen when the fireworks burst into a myriad of colours. Xiao Xi witnessed Jiang Chen hugging the girl. Thank goodness Wo Bu Song(second male lead) was there to take the crying Xiao Xi away from the scene.
