Love in Disguise is about superstar singer Du Minghan (Leehom Wang), who disguises himself as an undergraduate at a music conservatory so that he can pursue his schoolmate Song Xiaoqing (Liu Yifei), whom he has a crush on.
The story started in high school. Su Yunjin (Liu Yifei) is a struggling transfer student from a regional town, while rich heir Cheng Zheng (Kris Wu) is the star student who sits behind her. He fell in love with her and started to pursue her all the way through college, even though they studied and lived in different cities. Cheng Zheng was ultimately successful in pursuing Su Yunjin, who willed herself to follow her heart for once, even though she knew there would be many obstacles in their way. Soon, they were basking in happiness, and subsequently moved in together after university. However, reality caught up with them two years after graduation. Their vastly different personalities and disparate family background meant their relationship was unequal from the very beginning - their unspoken expectations of each other and all the misunderstandings that came with a mundane lifestyle caused them to part ways with each other. A few years later, both of them establish successful careers,...
Umm, this is supposed to be a love story and romance, but it didn't turn out to be like that. As some critics said, it doesn't show love and romance. What they said was right. Although it does have some kind of love between two main characters, but it wasn't that strong. So, it didn't turn out to be love and romance drama.
The reason why I watched this is that a friend posted this on his Facebook profile, so, I thought I would give it a try. While I was watching it, although it's some kind of drama, especially, it's a love and romance that kind of thing, but it didn't make me bored. That's why I gave four stars. Words are said like that, but it doesn't make this film a good film.
There are some facts I don't like. Among them, what I don't like the most is that the female leading role is being deliberately pulled away from the male leading character who is also happened to be her boyfriend. I mean they could have gone with the flow. Even if they wanted to break the couple up, they could do it in a smooth way. But the way they chose to do it, it can clearly be seen it's done on purpose. So, I think it's one of the worst facts of this film.
One more thing I'd like to mention is that the story isn't complete. It's like they cut in the middle. They should have continued. Cutting in the middle only makes the audience unsatisfied. So, if they continued, it'd be better.
All in all, the film indeed is not that much boring. Even a girl who doesn't like love and romance films, could watch it, I guess you could too. So, I'm not saying it's one of the worst films and not worth spending time with, but it doesn't strong and it needs to be better than this. It's worth to give it a try.
