Synopsis and Plot Summary

It tells the story of Xu Qing Feng, a handsome Doctor from Yanxi Hospital, and a senior female airline pilot Guan Yu Qing. Both are highly skilled and highly paid professionals who have to cope with a difficult home life.

Their parents had unrealistic demands and put relentless pressure on them. Their way of escaping is to work harder and longer so that they are as far away from home as possible.

Everything changes when they meet and fall in love. They then realize that they no longer have to face their problems as individuals but can overcome them together.

This does not mean an easy journey to happiness as both families are against their relationship. Can their love and determination overcome the many obstacles that are in front of them?


The Centimeter of Love | The Bitterness of Love Review

I think this is good because, in my opinion, the plot of the story is not bad. Three different families, their struggles, and their relationships bring a dynamic picture of life. In this family, it shows what is right and wrong with parents, and upbringing.

Despite having the most frustrating and despicable side characters, it really opens the mind of some cultures and how these things can be accepted. So, it helps some people to draw the line and say, no, not in my life.

The cast did an excellent job. You hate them, their acting is really good. You love them, they do a great job. That’s how your feelings fluctuate throughout.

Throughout the story, as families connect, disconnect, and bond, beautiful relationships develop. The prospects are good. Their chemistry is the real thing, so, there’s no shame in a passionate kiss. It’s really a big difference when actors mature.

This is the best part. They wrapped everything up beautifully. Don’t we all want that after investing so much time? The last episode was so well done that you forget that you wanted to throw your device away so many times because of some people.

The ending is totally worth it. I’m just saying I won’t be rewatching it because there’s too much to watch and it’s 46 episodes long. The main scene though after watching the wide-eyed woman with lips covering the drama is definitely a must return to.
