Synopsis

Xue Hai was a certifiable dork when he first arrived in Hangzhou. After his schoolmate Bao Zhu saved him from bullying, she became his first love. Then, a misunderstanding caused them to lose contact when she moved back to Taiwan. He thought she dumped him. So he transformed himself from a dork to a hunk in order to seek revenge.


Review:

The hit Taiwan Drama Hi! My Sweetheart is a reversal of the typical romance archetype. Instead of a not so pretty awkward girl with a nice personality, we have the lovable and awkward character of Da Lang/Xue Hai. A real live prince in a geek’s clothing. In another reversal we have the in-your-face-don’t- get-in-my-way-school-black-sheep Bao Zhu. The plot is simple, the characters were simple, and however it is this simplicity which made the story work. The superb and solid acting by the cast made this one of my favourite if not my number one Taiwan Drama. If you are after a light hearted, no frills romantic comedy which does not skimp on the romance or the comedy then this is a must watch. Rating: 9/10
