1. “Le Coup de Foudre”

They say opposites attract each other, and in this C-drama, that is totally true. “Le Coup de Foudre” follows the story of Zhao Qiao Yi (Wu Qian) and Yan Mo (Zhang Yu Jian), two completely different high school students that, due to a random seat arrangement, end up becoming desk mates. Slowly but surely, they become friends to eventually falling in love. While Qiao Yi is very shy and not that affectionate to study, Yan Mo is an aloof prodigy who finds relationships rather boring. The story progresses going back and forth from their student years to their current daily life as a married couple, which makes you wonder how they got there. From just being two awkward classmates, they start to take interest in each other, spending their youth together, and making memories and friendships along the way that will mark their lives forever.

On the other hand, Hao Wu Yi (Ma Li), Qiao Yi’s best friend, and Zhao Guan Chao (Zhao Zhi Wei), her brother, will bring the laughs with their sloppy interactions as the former has a secret crush on him, while he only can see her as his sister’s best friend.

This C-drama has an interesting plot, told in a fresh and entertaining way that will make you root for both couples but also shed some tears as you get to know their compelling stories.

Having a crush on a dazzling and intelligent boy is not always easy, especially if, like Chen Xiao Xi (Shen Yue), you gather the courage to confess your love only to be brutally turned down by an indifferent young man like Jiang Chen (Hu Yi Tian).

Thankfully, she doesn’t have to face those struggles alone because she has very good friends by her side who not only encourage and support her but also always make her smile.

Soon enough, Jiang Chen opens his heart to the sweet and cheerful girl who has always followed him around, taking them to experience wholesome love.

Working hard on both becoming a lawyer and hiding the truth about her return to her homeland from her mother, the last thing in Cong Rong’s mind is her old childhood friend, who now has become a prominent surgeon. On the other hand, Shao Qing has little worries in his life until he has to face the fact that his first love doesn’t remember him at all.

6. “Suddenly This Summer”

As previously said, some first loves can be quite painful, especially if there are some disappointments and broken promises in between the relationships. When He Luo (Bu Guan Jin) and Zhang Yuan (Bai Yu) meet during their high school years, they start off on the wrong foot. However, they quickly resolve their differences and find out that they have more in common than they originally thought. Their friendship is full of laughter, understanding, and support for each other, so much so that Zhang Yuan helps He Luo to enter the same prestigious university that he has been dreaming of attending. Nonetheless, the first heartbreak occurs when, in a shocking turn of events, Zhang Yuan loses his chance to enter that very university, forcing them to be in two far away cities.

Though both of them stay positive, accepting their new long-distance relationship, little by little they start to drift apart until they decide to put an end to their romance in a heartbreaking and tearful scene. Years later, when they get the chance to meet again, they’ll have to decide whether their love is more powerful than the regrets and pain they have experienced. This 2018 C-drama is full of feelings, emotions, and of course, the drama, which is perfectly portrayed in every scene and even in the original soundtrack, which includes a song performed by the male lead Bai Yu.
