Swirl of emotions, while detaching oneself from a loved one.
26 May 2018 | by schorschi100See all my reviews

I watched this series with low expectations, I just thought it would be another cliché BL story. It surprisingly turned out to be more than this. Lee-Fong Huang and John Wu deliver an amazing acting, as a couple who discover that in spite of the very deep feelings they have for each other, many other important components are missing from their relationship. External forces gradually drive them to separation, at first as excuses to overcome, and later as means of realizing the deeper lying problems. What the story is about is their struggle to cope with reality and to patch things up with each other but primarily with themselves. No easy task...

The plot is mesmerizing and most viewers will identify themselves with one of the two guys. Mind though, that at a second glance many questions remain unanswered (whether deliberately or accidentally, I cannot tell). The heroes' actions are not always intuitive (not to say erratic), especially from a western society's point of view. There is also a constant underlying depressive ambience throughout all six episodes, which, although aesthetically superb, becomes tiring. In any case one must bear in mind that this is a different culture with different values and priorities.

Watch it at your own risk, certainly not if you are feeling down. It will give you food for thought, but it will either draw you to a swirl of emotions leaving little place for your mind to work, or you will simply get bored from the onset.
