Autumn Concerto/Next Stop Happiness (taiwanese drama)

Ren Guang Xi, a cocky law student, seems to lead the perfect life. He's the sole successor to a huge and famous business and a talented ice hockey player. But in reality, his lonely life lacks joy, laughter and motivation. That is until he meets Liang Mu Cheng, the new bento seller at his school canteen. Although orphaned at a young age, Mu Cheng does not let her past affect her and lives life with great passion and determination. A harmless bet brings the two together and Guang Xi slowly changes as Mu Cheng teaches him how to give and love. Tragedy strikes when Guang Xi suddenly has to go through a major brain surgery which causes him to lose his memory. His mother begs Mu Cheng to leave him and the latter has no choice but to do so. Little does she know that she already has Guang Xi's child.
Six years pass. Mu Cheng lives a quiet life with her young son in the countryside while Guang Xi is now a successful lawyer and is engaged to He Yi Qian, the kind and beautiful doctor who took care of him after his surgery. A strangely familiar piano piece stirs Guang Xi's heart as he struggles to recall his past romance with Mu Cheng. How will the couple make up for six years of lost time? Happiness, which stop do I alight at?
one of the most amazing and tear wrenching dramas i've watched so far. mann my heart nearly shattered from all the heart wrenching scenes here. of course, there were really sweet and funny scenes as well. i especially loved the ngs(no good takes hehe)
this series had everything in it. angst, drama, happiness, comedy, sadness, you name it, they had it. and most of them were already in the first few episodes.
all the characters were deep, even the supporting cast. loved it. my only wish was that they could have made the ending even better than this. sighhh  but all in all,if you want to see something sweet and true with some amazing soundtracks and ost, i will definitely give this a huge up.
vaness wu and ady an were amazing as ren guang xi and liang mu cheng. their little kid, xiao le in the drama, was cute and amazing. tht was amazing acting from someone so young. the supporting were really amazing. i loved guang xi's mother too especially as her character matured later on. she portrayed her really well,and the rare times, we saw her smile, it was beautiful. although liang mu cheng was really simple and wore simple clothes, it made us feel for her with her sacrifices although at times, i jus wished that she could be a little more selfish rather than just thinking about everyone.
basically,i just loved the story. i watched this immediately when my computer was turned on. the drama is complete and online with english subs on youtube so enjoy people.
