We Go Fast on Trust Chinese Drama Review
This is a cute and short Rom-Com about a smart female engineer and a professional grand pix driver. this is not a theme you see often.
The story in the first 5 eps was a bit slow, I did speed it up several times, but not when the two leads were at the same time. After that, no one had a problem with the story. some people find it boring but not me.
The storyline is also developing very well and we can see the development and changes in the characters in a positive way.
You can also trust the acting of the two main actors here with very expressive eyes and emotions. The acting also improves with each episode.
The focus isn’t so much on the love story, but it does have some technical racing and entertaining shots.
Here, I like the main actor Zhai Zi Lu, who can act well. I really like the character Chen Mo Bai, he has acting talent and has great potential.
Meanwhile, I have mixed feelings about the character Shen Xi played by Ko Chia Yen. I love that she is smart and an engineer who is emotionless regarding her love for Chen Mo Bai.
I would argue that she did a good job of playing her character, but towards the end, it was a bit questionable.
The chemistry is quite good and convincing, although the romance scenes between the main characters here are not too many compared to other RomCom C-dramas.
Kudos to Zhai Zi Lu for his great acting during the emotional scenes, especially when he found out that he was the cause of his mother’s father. It was a tear-jerking sight.
However, there are several supporting actors who don’t act well, such as James Lee who plays Lin Shao Qian, Ma Yin Yin who plays Chen Mo Fei, and Jojo Chen who plays Zhao Ying Ning.
Lastly, the ending made me very disappointed because in my opinion, the conclusion wasn’t quite right, and there were several episodes that were cut, making the story unfinished. It’s a shame, even though I think the storyline is interesting, and the main characters play their roles well.
Despite some of its shortcomings, We Go Fast on Trust Chinese drama is worth watching because it has good quality acting from the main cast and a unique story theme.

We Go Fast on Trust is a good Chinese drama with themes that are rarely addressed and the main character’s acting is convincing. If you like racing and romance this might be for you, please be aware that the last few episodes have had a dip in quality, this may be due to the budget. I would rate this 7,8/10.
