One and a Half Summer is a very light & fluffy drama. I came into it not knowing any of the actors, though it features an idol from Korea (Nichkhun, 2PM) as one its main leads. But that’s neither here nor there if you don’t know who he is (like me) ^^;What I liked most about this drama is the camera work, oddly enough. That’s what’s captured my attention in the first episode. It’s not quite as artistic as say, Sword & Flower, but it has a certain finesse lớn it that engaged me in the scenes. It was just very crisp, clean, và not as soap opera-esque, let-me-flat-focus-on-your-face-for-this-whole-scene, as other dramas tend to be sometimes.As for the actors & characters themselves, they were the next best part of the drama. Everyone acted very well, but I had my favorites. Nick Chou as Tang Bo Wen was definitely one of those. I could watch him act any day. He was very good at playing a guy very quiet và in control of himself but finds himself falling for a girl who doesn’t quite love him back in the same way. Funnily enough, I was so entranced by his acting that I lost a little bit of interest in the main lead’s love triangle and found myself anticipating the next scene with him in it (heh...) The actor who plays Ma Jun Cai was also very entertaining khổng lồ watch as the sort of dweeb of the group.That brings me to the storyline itself. It is very basic and probably one of the weaker points of the drama, just because it is so standard. It’s just some kids on a university campus & their love stories, basically. Oh, và one love story between older characters (30s-ish). The main leads have a love triangle; someone’s always pining after the one person they decided to lượt thích but can’t be together with; etc. One thing I bởi vì want to give props to lớn the drama for is giving the second male lead a real chance, though. Without giving away any spoilers, even though the characters mostly fall for the person who’s out of their reach, the writers did give each character a fair fighting chance lớn express themselves lớn the other party, at least. Communication was never lacking between the characters, a facet I appreciated (much better than lack of communication or the silent noble idiots dramas tend lớn have in abundance).The music was good, too. I lượt thích how they incorporated the main tuy nhiên (which has the same name as the show itself) into one of the drama’s overarching plots. Another thing that kind of threw me off though, is that they used the instrumentals from In Time With You as background music >And I’ll just mention this because it’s an important part of Mainland đài loan trung quốc dramas: The dubbing. The only noticeable dubbing in this drama was over Nichkhun (his mouth never matches what’s being said). Other that than, there’s little lớn no dubbing over the rest of the actor’s voices (only occasionally when they’re in a loud place lượt thích the cafeteria. & even then, it’s minimal).The second khổng lồ worst part of the drama was the overuse of flashbacks. Constantly. Just about every other scene, I swear. Just about killed me.The worst part of the drama was the ending. I like to pretend it didn’t happen and would rather just imagine my own more satisfactory ending. It definitely puts the emphasis on “ambiguous” and draws out a “That’s it? The end?” from the viewer >.>In short, out of the four Mainland trung quốc dramas I’ve watched, this is one of the better ones for sure. I would recommend watching this if:-You lượt thích Nichkhun (or any of the actors)-You lượt thích university/school-based dramas-You lượt thích characters communicating with each other-You like love trianglesDon’t watch if:-You lượt thích dramas with deep, introspective plot lines-You lượt thích a lot of romance/skin-ship-You hate pining/angsty characters-You hate flashbacks every episode for scenes that you just saw
