Another good starter drama. A little less innocent than Goong in parts.

ACTING: Actors are amazing and work really well together.

PLOT: Plot is good, it doesn’t drag and is pretty adorable all the way through (except when it’s ridiculously adorable). They do a fantastic job of creating an interesting plot despite the fact that the main couple gets together within the first 2 episodes.

ENDING: I give this a 10 because it probably has the best ending of any drama I’ve ever watched (though Goong had a good ending too). One drama cliche is that the angst must last until the 1-5 minutes of the drama, and then everything decompresses from there. It’s not that it doesn’t work 9 times out of 10 but one of the things I liked best about SP was that the angst was sprinkled throughout the entire drama and the ending was mild angst coupled with cuteness in such a way that made this the only drama I’ve ever watched until the very end. Twice.

OST: You won’t squeal from the memories, but there definitely is an attachment to some of the songs. Plus, you don’t have to be a drama addict to like some of them. It was after this drama that I started looking into Nicholas Teo’s music.

RATING: 10

    • Haha! What’s that supposed to mean? He did take a little bit of getting used to in the beginning (so did Ah Zhe/Gino) but they all act so well!

  2. never being bored to watch this drama 😄
    love xiao shi and her family ^^

    • so true. The whole show is absolutely adorable! I love the scene in Episode 9 or something when they’re talking on the phone and he sneaks up behind her– so cute!
