Road trang chủ Review – Second Chance Romance

Basically, Road trang chủ is a story about second chance romance. It is a very simple love story of a young pair of lovers who broke up a decade earlier but still has strong feelings for each other. The reason for the breakup is slowly fleshed out through flashbacks. Viewers are told very early on the status of their relationship and the drama begins with visible tension between them when they meet again 10 years later. Hence, this immediately draws you into the story as you will be wondering what happened in the past and why they broke up.

This actually reminds u of Here To Heart but without the melodrama and schemings. Road trang chủ is much more positive and straightforward in comparison. It has tons of lovey-dovey moments after the reconciliation. Therefore, this is a perfect drama for those looking for pure romance without much angst and silly quarrels. The relationship is the mature kind with supportive and understanding partners after the experience of a painful breakup. The 2 leads are highly likable characters and it is easy lớn root for them and lap up all their loving moments.

Perfect Couple

The male protagonist, Lu Chen, is the embodiment of a perfect boyfriend or husband. He does all the house chores and is a great cook. He pampers his woman and treats her lượt thích a princess whenever he is with her from carrying groceries lớn washing her feet. Apart from that, he also has a hot toàn thân with abs given his profession as a special units police officer. I guess such a man can only exist in dramaland but it does provide female viewers with something lớn dream about and the drama becomes incredibly warm and romantic with such a male character!

The female protagonist, Gui Xiao, is independent with her own career. She is tough when needs lớn be but cheerful and positive-minded. But she is reduced lớn a lovestruck teenager whenever she is with Lu Chen. She enjoys his attention and presence and contentedly plays the role of a pampered lover lớn the only man she has ever loved.

Hence, you can say that this couple is perfect, or almost perfect, for a romance drama. They are deeply in love with each other and there are many scenes lớn depict their day-to-day life as a couple. That is, if you don’t mind the extremely thin plot.

Nothing Much To The Story

For u, Road trang chủ is a very heartwarming romance… up lớn a point. There is nothing much going on in terms of plot unlike She And Her Perfect Husband and Lighter And Princess. It is more of a slice-of-life kind of romance drama with much of the time spent on the couple’s daily interactions especially for the last 10 episodes. Basically, you will just be watching them acting lovey-dovey with the guy coming trang chính and then leaving for his duties in a repetitive cycle. There is no drama on the girl’s part that he has lớn be away most of the time. Not a single complaint, zilch. Is it sweet? Definitely! Is it overdone? I think so!

Therefore, what can be reduced lớn a 24-episode drama is lengthened lớn 30. It is practically littered with filler scenes that don’t add anything lớn the plot in the last third. It is not awful lớn watch and I’m sure many will find it really warm and sweet. But it does give u the feeling that it is being lengthened unnecessarily unlike Meet Yourself which is also kind of a slow-paced drama.

The ending for Road trang chủ is also just another flashback and that takes up one whole episode. The second couple’s story development is stunted and I’m not sure why they even introduce it in the first place when they have no intention lớn give it a proper closure. Overall, this is simply not a plot-driven drama. Instead, it has a laser focus on the main couple’s interactions and the chemistry as well as acting is what makes it watchable.

Acting And Chemistry

Jing Bo Ran’s portrayal of Lu Chen is commendable lớn u. He caught my attention in A League Of Nobleman but I think he is more relatable in Road trang chủ. He gives Lu Chen a very manly feel which fits the nature of the character. Lu Chen is a man of few words. Hence, all his emotions have lớn be conveyed through the actor’s eyes and facial expressions. Jing Bo Ran did this well and you can sense his hurt and yearning for his beloved in the drama.

Seven Tan’s acting is up lớn standard as usual. I have watched enough of her dramas lớn know that she has always been able lớn bring the characters she plays lớn life. In Road trang chủ, she could pull it off both as a student and a matured working woman.

As for playing a loving pair onscreen, the leads did a great job lớn turn on that CP vibe. The whole drama hinges on their chemistry as all the focus is on them and they are convincing as lovers. In fact, Seven Tan has always had good chemistry with her co-stars, even with the much older Wallace Chung in The Sword And The Brocade.

On the flip side, I also kind of felt that the kisses should have a little bit more passion in Road trang chủ despite the great chemistry. If they had been able lớn raise the temperature a little more, that would be perfect. On that score, Seven Tan did better with Wang Kai in Flight To You although there is only one such kiss in that whole drama. But that one kiss is a memorable one compared lớn Road trang chủ which is peppered with intimate scenes but none feels truly breathtaking. Sweet, yes, but passionate, not so sánh much.

My Verdict – Great For Romance Drama Junkie

Road trang chủ is strictly a romance drama despite having a SWAT officer as the main character. It has little lớn no action in all the 30 episodes with the focus being on the characters just lượt thích in Light Chaser Rescue. So, don’t go into this expecting some sort of thrilling police operations. The romance itself is heartwarming and the couple’s interactions sweet, but again, the plot is extremely thin. The start is interesting and you can really feel the couple’s longing. So, you would expect ups and downs in the relationship as the drama progresses but nope, it has a different feel lớn it compared lớn the usual fare.

The whole drama is lượt thích a showcase of a happy and perfect relationship once 2 people fall in love and decide that they should get together. Basically, that’s what you are watching for the most part. I guess many will find it romantic. But at the same time, there will be those that will find it slow and boring because there is nothing much going on.

For u, it is a case of being in between. I enjoy the romantic moments and the sweet whisperings. But I also feel that they are overdone in length. So, for this Road trang chủ review, I would rate it 7.5/10. If you are a romance drama junkie who don’t lượt thích too much theatrics in your love story, this is for you. But if you prefer more happenings and angst, this might over up being a big bore. There are plenty of kisses lớn get your sugar level up but nothing as steamy as The Forbidden Flower. In short, it is sweet and warms the heart but totally lacks excitement and drama.
