by staples

[UPDATE]: According to CpopAccess’s article (linked below), The drama is scheduled to premiere on Sunday September 19th at 10 pm. Any guesses as to when Viikii will be done translating it?

That’s right folks! Nicholas Teo, the star of the wonderful, adorable, Smiling Pasta and Invincible Shan Bao Mei (which I have yet to finish-darn slow fansubbers), is going to be in a new drama come September!

Smiling Pasta

CYNDI WANG, NICHOLAS TEO, GINO, JOYCE ZHAO


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
