How long can Shu Lei keep up her dangerous ruse? “Runaway Sweetheart” is a 2013 Chinese drama series. It is the Chinese version of the “Hana Kimi” manga story, which also was a popular remake in Korea called “To the Beautiful You.”
Only on the first episode. May not finish the show. It just moves to fast in the first episode, voices don't match with the mouths, and she is way too stupid. Come on, yeah im gonna go undercover at an all boys school, leave my room door open and suitcase of feminine open and take a shower... Yeah real smooth...
I would have given this series only 5 stars, but I gave it an extra one due to the cast. The cast of actors actually did a credible job conveying emotions, but the writing was horrible. Anyone who thought that to the beautiful you was bad needs to watch this. There wasn't even one kiss scene to compensate for the erratic plot. This could have been so much better if the actors weren't encouraged to way over act things for comedy and instead focused on the small moments.
