Mars (Taiwanese Drama)

25 May

Summary: Han Qi Luo (Barbie Xu),an extremely shy art student went to the same college as Chen Ling (Vic Zhou),a popular play boy. By chance one day they met at a park when CL asked HQL for direction to a hospital to visit his friend who was injured in a bike racing incident. Hurriedly HQL drew him a map, unknowing that she was drawing on the back of one of her sketches. She ran off before he could thank her. He then noticed the sketch of a mother holding a baby and was touched. In school HQL was sexually harrassed by a teacher and CL came to her rescue. They began to grow fond of each other but each of them had a secret past that needed to be addressed and overcome before they could accept and love one another freely.

Episodes: 21 Completed


What I Think About It:

I first seen Barbie Xu and Vic Zhou working together on Meteor Garden. They were able to portray their characters there (Meteor Garden)  and same is true on Mars. Mars is quite a twisted story and it takes a great deal of acting to make it believable. (Thumbs up for the actors!) It touches subjects like mental illnesses, suicide, and even rape which is rare in dramas. And it greatly depicts a sense of realism on the brooding characters of Ling and Qi Luo. I even shed tears throughout the drama and overall, this is a total must-see.

If you haven’t read my review about its manhwa/manga,  you read it here.
