It starts slow, but if you give it a chance it's a sweet romance drama. Rainie Yang plays Momo a manga-loving, unsocial college student and Jiro Wang plays MARS a fading idol. They end up living together and poof the magic happens. Both characters are not too lovable at first, but as time goes by, you can't help but like them. It's a total fantasy, but a darn good one. The second love interest Jia Sen played by George Hu isn't much competition for MARS. I wish he had some other "flaw" besides the one he had. It would have been more interesting conflict for everyone involved. It was more fun in the first half, the second half was very angsty, but I guess that is par for the course for any drama. Still, I marathoned quite a bit of it and am a fan of Jiro Wang now. I liked the character of MARS' manager/best friend. The relationship between him and MARS was really nicely shown. The ending was spot on exactly what you want to see and ties things up nicely. Here is the MV for the ending song for the show. What a great song. Jiro and Fahrenheit, where have you been all my life?

  1. Hahaha we are Fahrenheit fans too :D They are very entertaining to watch in concert!!! Wasn't a huge fan of all the members at first, but after one concert - ended up admiring each of them for their individual personalities and talents. There are some variety shows that they have appeared on and it's great how they just have fun doing what they do! They tease each other like brothers;p
