you should see selena in to grow with love then .. shes getting better and better .. haha and plus shes so darn nice :) ..

 

this was a very good series, it looks uninteresting at first, but once the story progresses and you get over all the sappy love scenes, you will really liek the medical aspect of the series

I didn't really like this series, it was a little confusing. I didn't get to see the end,but it was pretty sad when that one girl went blind over her love for that one dude. Also all the medicine talk was very confusing.

Many people I know thought this series was boring and un-interesting.

But I liked it a lot. THe whole plot was basically about the manual and how it came to being. The medicine stuff was quite interesting to me. Althought I thought they could have done better with the cast.

in this series, who Frankie Lam actually loves?

somehow he gave me the feeling that he likes Michelle Ye more.

this series was over reallly predictable because within the first 5 episodes it already showed that two of the main characters falling in love with each other. And to the end the two doesn't end up with each as predicted in the beginning.

This serie is quite boring becuase it only talks aboutt he relationship of frankie, michelle, and selana. Micheele chacher was boring and frankie still can't act, his emotions are very bad, sometimes i can't tell if he is crying or sad???

I quite liked this series, even though that it concentrates on the love relationships of the four main characters. I was pleasantly surprised about Selena Li's performance as I believed this was her first main series. Actually, I think she was better than Michelle Yip, whose acting I have never liked. Frankie and Selena were very sweet together...
