Heart Wrenching Love Story...
3 April 2019 | by Geeta352See all my reviews

Beautifully portrayed by Jing Boran and Zhou Dongyu as two star-crossed lovers, who, although they loved each other( in their hearts) over the years, were fated never to come together in a committed relationship. I found myself hoping they could verbally say, ' I love you and only you," to each other and to apologize to each other when they hurt each other, but they couldn't. In the end they went their separate ways and lived separate lives - forever loving and missing each other. The performances were convincing and painful to watch. I cried as I watched it and afterwards as I watched the credits. Keep a box of tissues near by; you will definitely need it.

Kudos to everyone involved in the making of this very moving, realistic love story.
