Ambrose Hsu (Leo), Yi Rong Chen, Xu Gui Ying

What, when, where and who
I have to say this is one of the most romantic and emotional series I ever seen!

Yi Rong and her sister were the un-normal person, who have heart disease when they were born. Their life is going to be short due to the heart disease, because their heart just can not handle any emotional changes (like falling in love)

Yi Rong and Ambrose were great friends in Elementary school, in fact, they were in love. However, Ambrose's whole family moved, so they had to separate. Before Ambrose left, he gave Yi Rong a lavender bottle, and promised her no matter what, he will came back and find her when she is 20 years old.

Because of the promise, Yi Rong has been waiting for Ambrose... and 20 years later, there is a very famous singer Leo came to Taiwan. Yi Rong knew he was Ambrose, and the two met again However, Leo's fame and Yi Rong's normal life just can't fit so well. They had many difficulties and even broke up couple times, but they realized they love each other deeply.

Yi Rong's condition gets worse and worse as their love relationship gets worse due to the fact that Ambrose's ex-girlfriend Maggie came back. Maggie tries to win Ambrose back, so she did many things to weaken Ambrose and Yi Rong's relationship. Meanwhile, there is another guy who loves Yi Rong deeply, he wants to win Yi Rong as well. When Yi Rong was hurt, that guy was the one helps her, but Yi Rong's heart is still belongs to Ambrose....

THE FACTORS
- Hate Factor
Maggie
I hate the way she tries to win Ambrose back, it's insane! But, the good thing is that she finally realized how much Ambrose loves Yi Rong, thank god she finally gave up! Otherwise, I will hit her! Seriously!

- Love Factor
Ambrose Hsu
The first moment I see him, I begin to like him, I don't why, Ambrose is handsome, and very cute! A good actor, too. I loved the way he cries, the way he tries to win Yi Rong back, and the way he sings. At the beginning, he is the famous singer, but has no life. He did not trust love because both his parents suicide because of love. He was mean, cruel until he met Yi Rong, who totally changed his life. Ambrose begins to know the true meaning of love, care, and the importance of life

Yi Rong Chen
This character is so brave! She knew she is going to die soon with her heart disease, and she saw how her sister died because of falling in love... Her life is short, but she wants to make it pretty, so she did, she found her true love. She truly told everyone: life is short, it just needs to be beautiful, so that no matter how short it is, it is going to be perfect

- Pity Factor
Ambrose's Leo, I guess
I just can not stand the fact that Leo lost his love after all that he and Yi Rong went through... it's just so sad. But, both of them learned the miracle of love, I guess that is the most important thing

- How Come Factor
Oh my god, I totally loved the ending, but this ending is the saddest ending I ever seen in my life! Okey, if you don't mind I give away the ending, please read:
We all know Yi Rong is going to die, Ambrose wins her back and helps her survive and hoping a miracle will happen. Well, for a while they did happily lived, then Yi Rong pregnant, everyone tries to convince her to do abortion. Yi Rong tells Ambrose that she is afraid she will die soon, and left Ambrose alone, she didn't want that to happen, she wants to leave him a baby, so that he will not be alone. Ambrose feels so sad, and was begging her to do abortion, he didn't want any chance to loose Yi Rong. However, Yi Rong convinced Ambrose to have the baby. But, couple months later, BEFORE THE BABY WAS BORN, Yi Rong died!!!! Oh my god! I cried my eyes out! I can't believe the producer decides to let Yi Rong and the baby die! It is so sad! All Yi Rong wanted is to left Ambrose something, but she could not... why the producer has to be so cruel!

Ambrose can cry very well! He is so cute, I have to say, he got a great voice, too. Love the themesongs sang by him, those fit the story well. Yi Rong is really pretty, too. I think she is very good, love the way she cries... Every single star in this series did an excellent job, their performances made the series very emotional and romantic...
