Hi, My Sweetheart! 海派甜心!
Well this is the television show that I have been mentioning to write about! I stumbled across it as I was surfing youtube this past week. I had seen a advertisement on http://silentregrets.com but I did not check it out because I did not recognize the main characters! lol Show Luo and Rainie Yang are the two stars in this Taiwanese drama. I am not really a fan of their music but I really enjoyed Show Luo in Corner with Love (轉角*遇到愛) and Rainie Yang in Devil Beside You (惡魔在身邊) and a movie called Spider Lillies. I like some of their songs especially the opening theme song for Hi, My Sweetheart.
Show Luo plays a stereotypical nerd/geek/dork that is trying to get away from his overprotective da jie, but in order for him to do this he has to travel to Hangzhou. As he arrives at his new found college he eventually is introduced to Rainie Yang. Rainie is playing the college troublemaker that everyone despises. Well Show Luo and Rainie Yang fall in love and if you ask me it is the weirdest relationship I have ever seen. It is probably weirder than a 5 foot man dating a Scandinavian woman. lol But even though their relationship is extremely weird, it is rather cute and entertaining. Unfortunately as the show progresses Rainie ends up “breaking up” with Show. Show then declares that he will never be fooled by love again and changes everything about him. Three years after they both have graduated from college they meet again. Well I do not want to ruin the plot of the show so I am going to end it there for the description.
There are several reasons that I became attracted to this show. First off as I said I have enjoyed some shows that Show Luo and Rainie Yang have done in the past. I also really enjoy the animated way that the show is filmed and written. Hi, My Sweetheart is the closest thing to an anime but with actual people. The storyline is a little bit far fetched but this drama has really captivated my attention. I probably should of been focusing on my school work this week but I have been blowing it off because of this show. I normally try not to watch a lot of television, but this show is really engaging. So anyways I hope you check it out and enjoy! Until next time!
P.S. The show is still in progress but I think I can safely rate this show a 4 out of 5 stars.
