I absolutely adore this drama. There are so much good here. It warms my heart watching all of them work together. Granted, there's a reason for it but still. The friendship between the children is admirable. I'm going to miss them so much once it's the adult actors' turn. :letalQQ:

NOOO!! I'm watching episode 11 and Hua Juan (also known as Ji Jiang) talks about how he's fallen in love with Lin Zhaoxi. :letalQQ:


I love Hua Juan and Lin Zhaoxi together because as children they had the best friendship. I didn't see this coming because it was clear that Lin Zhaoxi only has eyes for Pei Zhi. Hua Juan was focused on other things that I didn't suspect he would like her. Now that he's talked about it to his manager (who went to school with both of them), I'm just hoping this doesn't become a strong part of the story. Love triangle is a trope I do not like.

I finished this drama and I have to say, I was very disappointed once it transition from the child actors to the adult actors. The spirit of all the characters were no longer there once they became adult. I had a very hard time connecting to the adult characters. When I finally found some connection, there was a twist in the story and I was back to feeling disconnected again. 


The most interesting parts of the drama was when they were in the cheese world, as children and adults. When they went back to the strawberry world, it became uninteresting. The little twist with the cheese world Pei Zhi traveling to the strawberry world and refusing to leave was a little bit out of character. That was not the kind of personality I got from the the cheese world Pei Zhi so to see that was a little strange. 


Anyway, I'm just glad this is over. It had lots of potential and it kind of just fell flat. :idk:
