    A Love So Beautiful

    “Love is one of the most beautiful feelings in the world. To love someone so much that your existence becomes a blur and everything revolves around that one name is a blessing. “

    From last one month, I was watching a lot of romantic movies and drama series on Netflix. I avoided Netflix for so long, but then I decided to give it a try and ended up watching a whole lot of stuff that I never intended to watch. So after a month of a free subscription, I finally decided to disentangle myself from the Netflix world.

    So this post is about my best watch out of the lot that I ended up seeing during last month.

    A Love So Beautiful is a Chinese youth drama based on novel To Our Pure Little Beauty by Zhao Qianqian, which I read after watching the series. It starts with high school classmates Chen Xiao Xi and Jiang Chen who are also neighbors, where Chen Xiao Xi has a crush on Jiang Chen, but he is indifferent towards her. The story unfolds various aspects of teenage, friendship and growth of a person. I especially loved the graph of leading lady’s character. I am still not over this show especially the title song. The beauty of the show lies in the innocence of teenage love. It reminds you of your first adolescent crush and how beautiful it is to like someone in that way. I have huge girl crush on Shen Yue, the girl playing the protagonist. She has embodied the feeling and innocence of 16 years old so beautifully that your heart melts seeing her in every scene.

    A must watch if you love romance with a hint of innocence and purity in it.

    PS : Sharing the title song with you guys 🙂 The show is also available on YouTube also with English Subtitles here.

    If you have already watched this beautiful web series 🙂 then lets discuss it in comment section 🙂
