Drama review: 盛夏晚晴天 Sheng Xia Wan Qing Tian



Finally another mainland drama! I havent watched chinese dramas for ages and I've been searching for the good ones and this is just perfect! My friend recommended me and said this was just so sweet. I love sweet and romantic drama so this suits me very much. What's cuter than a real life couple portraying an on-screen lover? Liu Kai Wei and Yang Mi really made me shipped them to the bits! Never knew that Yang Mi is the hottest young actress in mainland now and pretty surprised at first because I've never heard her name before. It's a 51-episode-drama so I dont recommend you to watch if you dont like the long drama but it's pretty short for a episode, only 40 minutes or less. Since it can be considered a romantic drama with family intrigue, sometimes you'll find it boring when they talked about business. The story tells about a girl named Xia Wan Qing (Yang Mi) whose boyfriend was taken by her bestfriend a.k.a his former girlfriend and in order to get revenge, she seeked help from Qiao Jin Fan (Liu Kai Wei) a playboy from Qiao's family which is the business enemy of Xia's family. Things involved were about love, revenge, business, and so on. I find this one was interesting because when both of them were on screen, their chemistry was just perfect and you'll love anything about them. You should pay attention to their phone ringtones after they officially dated. Cuteness overload <3 I skipped the part about business or useless talks since this drama was too long and Im used to watch korean dramas where most of them only consisted of 16-18 episodes. This one is highly recommended, should say 9.5 out of 10 stars. Liu Kai Wei and Yang Mi <333

PS: you can watch it online on www.viki.com with the title 'Clear Midsummers Night'. Preferable if you can mandarin, because some may not have subtitles.

Synopsis:
The daughter of a real estate mogul Xia Wan Qing (Yang Mi), has seemingly no way of retreating after a friend's betrayal and her boyfriend backing out of their wedding. Fortunately, she's saved by business genius Qiao Jin Fan (Hawick Lau). Jin Fan is a "playboy" and the future successor for Qiao corporation. He extends an offering hand and together they embark on a path of revenge. Each for reasons of their own, begin a love with "uncertain motives." After enduring circumstances because of their families' competing interests and a number of conspiracies the two find true love.
