A Love So Beautiful (2017)

A Love So Beautiful was my second Chinese drama this year after Love O2O. I put this show on my to watch list after seeing its poster on the regular streaming sites that I use to watch Korean dramas. However, I decided to watch it despite not having enough time to squeeze another show on my schedule after I received endless Whatsapp messages from my sister raving about this drama. My initial reaction after getting those messages from my sister was. "Wow! Show, you must have been really really good eh?" simply because they came from my sister who's quite cynical and judgemental with my habit of watching Korean dramas and my choices of Korean dramas.

Snippet of the drama (from Viki)
It tells the love story of two childhood sweethearts that spans 19 years: a proud genius boy and a cute girl with a lot of energy. Chen Xiao Xi is a cute and small girl with a lot of positive energy. She gets to know Jiang Chen, a tall and proud genius boy, at school and tries everything to pursue him. The drama depicts the beautiful and pure heart throbbing love of seventeen years olds, but also delves into the topic of making mistakes and how to find back to each other again.

My thoughts
What a sweet and beautiful show! If you can get diabetes from watching dramas, this show would be one of those dramas. It was so sweet, probably too sweet to the point my head, my heart, and my mouth hurt. My head and my heart hurt because I couldn't handle the sweetness and cuteness of the show while my mouth hurts because I kept grinning and smiling throughout the whole show. I have lost count how many times I squealed and said, "OMG! That was so cute!" that I hope my roommates will not think that I'm crazy or anything. lol!


Honestly, I thought I'm over with high school dramas and likes now that I'm nearing mid 20s, but oh boy, was I wrong. The show proved to me that I can still get giddy and over excited over high school dramas. Of course, we got a glimpse of their adulthood too but the majority of the show was concentrated on their high school years that I'm still going to call this show a high school drama.

It was easy watch and enjoyable at most times. However, admittedly, not all parts of the show sit well with me. I did feel frustrated sometimes on how self-centered Chen Xiao Xi can be and how Jiang Chen is not expressive enough. Why is it so hard for you to smile, Jiang Chen? I'm also not fond of how the show played with the timeskip after high school and how they resolved conflicts between the Chen Xiao Xi and Jiang Chen. But, I'm generous enough not to let my frustration affected my whole experience because this show was so cute and it deserved some love!

I highly recommend this drama if you want to watch something cute and sweet! *Please count how many times I mentioned sweet or cute* Or, if you are looking to watch something just for the pure entertainment! :)

  1. Drama ni mesti boleh jd fav drama kalau kak ana muda remaja macam u ollss.. Hehe. Skrg ni bila usia dah meningkat (haha) jarang dan tak berapa nak suka drama cinta cintun ni. Maybe dah banyak tgk dulu kot. Kak ana sekarang prefer drama berkisarkan family, conflict, profession, thriller and horror.
