In A Good Way [我的自由年代] Episode 1 – Review

Jafstar78 gave me a heads up to watch this drama, and boy am I glad they did. Thank you Jafstar!!

In a Good Way is set back in 1995, back when cell phones didn’t exist (gasp!), pagers were all the rage, and riding a moped make you cool (snicker). It surrounds the story of our heroine Lin Jia En as she narrates from 2005, reflecting on “that year”. We then see where the story begins in 1995, as Jia En and her friend Zheng Ren Wei are applying to colleges. She doesn’t get in (due to a last minute change up in school choices), and is left to sit despondently at  home while Ren Wei is having the time of his life in college. She finally decides follow him to Taipei and retake the exam, but gets her purse stolen when she arrives on campus, can’t find his dorm, and can’t contact him (he’s been ignoring her calls). Thankfully the student whose room she barged into helps her out (OTP!) – it’s Liu Shan Feng, played by Lego Li. 

In A Good Way is a breath of fresh air from the dramas we’ve been having recently. It’s simple, breezy, and doesn’t rely on any drama tropes like contract marriages. The pacing of the drama is a little slower as a result, but it’s unnoticeable for the most part. I really loved the rapport between Shan Feng and Jia En – they’ve already got respect for each other and Shan Feng finds Jia En intriguing. I can’t wait to see the romance begin! 😀
