Fake It Till You Make It Review
It is not a drama for everyone, but if you are looking for something like mature romance, realistic, honest, and sincere conversations, then this is for you.
You will probably really enjoy this drama which is not full of clichés and romantic tropes, it is not a silly rom-com or a sad and angst-filled drama.
Here you will be presented with lots of business talks – about 50% business, 50% romance. If this isn’t your cup of tea, you might want to reconsider watching it.
This is not a plot-driven drama either. Here, the business plot serves as a way for our top prospects to grow personally and professionally.
As for his character, Elvis is a playboy who is fun and hard to resist. He is afraid of committing or opening up to any woman.
Meanwhile, Tang Ying is a career-focused and hardworking lawyer who is afraid of getting hurt after her failed love confession several years ago.
They have equal standing and power dynamics in this relationship. The two met as strangers on a plane, slowly becoming friends and then lovers. I love this romance.
Even though they are complete opposites, the chemistry between Elvis and Tan Yang is clearly visible. When they became best friends, they seemed like a perfect match made in heaven. Their honest conversations about love and constant flirting are the best parts of the show.
Even through just a few short text messages, you can feel the chemistry. You will support them and want them to be together as soon as possible.
His acting is right on target. This was my first drama about Elvis Han and Elvira Cai and it did not disappoint. If in the end you don’t like the theme of this drama, at least you can enjoy the extraordinary acting of Elvis Han and Elvira Cai. Both are beyond doubt!
Meanwhile, Dai Yun Fan as Xu Jia Bai is also very good. I was very impressed with his emotional acting. The acting of the cast as a whole is very good. None of the characters irritated or annoyed me.
The dialogue is very heavy – The beauty of this drama is that the conversations are witty and wise. Try not to speed things up or you’ll miss dialogue and lose the mood.
Try not to do this in business plots, because you will be even more confused. You need to pay attention to many things to understand, so you have to be patient. That might be a slight drawback.
So is Fake It Till You Make It Chinese drama worth watching? Very worthy if you are looking for a mature romance with a business plot. But I think the drama starts a bit slow and you might get confused about the business side of things.
This may also seem a little preachy, but stick with it and you’ll be rewarded with a great romantic journey between two flawed but realistic characters and great chemistry.
Enough with the romance, but what does “Fake It Till You Make It” mean? In this drama, all the characters at some point have to mask their true intentions and feelings and express themselves differently.
