It Started with a Kiss Season 2/They Kiss Again (taiwanese drama, manga)

The sequel of It Started With A Kiss begins with Xiang Qin and Zhi Shu's wedding and honeymoon.

Even after marriage, they experience problems and interferences within their marriage such as mistaken pregnancy, misunderstandings, and new found jealousies. Xiang Qin and Zhi Shu switch to medical school to become nurse and doctor. During that time, Zhi Shu meets new rivals who wish to outdo him and Xiang Qin makes four new friends, and one of them likes her and wishes to replace Zhi Shu.
How will their lives turn out to be?
Well I know I'm starting with season 2 but that's because I've actually finished season 1 in the manga itself. i had delayed on this series because truthfully, i'm not into too much drama and our main guy tends to keep bullying our heroine, although she is a little on the dumb side...well maybe really dumb.
thus due to that, i skipped on watching season 1 on video but i really enjoyed season 2 as i hadn't finished that on manga, and also, the story, although there was the usual drama and all, but what really attracted me to it was the chemistry between the leads.
they portrayed their roles to perfection and their love seemed so real. they were both so comfortable with each other. not only that, even the other casts were really good, the family, friends, doctors and nurses. no one looked fake or awkward.
joe cheng's portrayal of zhi shu was so good; a genius of iq 200, quiet without much expression and cold. sighhhh too good. ariel lin is one of my favourite actresses. and she scored even more points for me here. her portrayal of xiang qin as the naive, dumb but bubbly girl so hopelessly in love with zhi shu, hehehe mannn fabulous. she did her role really well, without letting us viewers get irritated with all her crying and shouting and all. it was actually endearing. especially her day dreams grins zhi shu was really coo with the expressionless face, but once in a while, we'd see him with tender expressions on his face when he looked at xiang qin.
i bet every girl's heart swooned then. hehehehe watching this video made me grin like silly the whole time i watched it. too bad i haven't heard anything of a season 3. they said there might not be any as they wanted to stay true to the manga. the mangaka died without completing the story, so sad. but hope she's in peace. she wrote such a great story. there's even an anime of this show.
i would definitely recommend this for anyone who's really into romantic comedies with some light drama. this drama was aired few years ago but still, there are people who are viewing it even today. you can find the whole series on youtube online, completed and english subbed. enjoy!!!
