With the end of Substitute Princess
, I'm sure that like me, many of you have been left with a feeling of emptiness as we attempt to find our way in a Terry-less world. Well my friends, have no fear for Love Around
is here and though Chris Wu is nowhere to be found, George Hu is here to take his place and fill that gaping hole in our hearts...and fill it, he does!

In a Terry-less world, Zhou Zhen steps up to fill the hole in our hearts that can only be filled by a sweetly charming and slightly wounded hero.[/caption]
I don't know about anyone else, but two episodes into Love Around
and I'm completely hooked! For those of you looking for a serious romance, you've come to the wrong place. Love Around
is anything but serious but that doesn't mean it isn't as entertaining as heck! Two episodes in and already we've watched our hero, Zhou Zhen, get dumped by his fed-up girlfriend, our heroine, Liang Xiao Shu, catch her boyfriend cheating, had our main characters participate in two cases of vandalism, endure a drunken stupor, a false accusation, a trip to the police station, a piggy-back ride, a run-in with a gang and two very smooth saves by our hero.

Zhou Zhen is really Superman in disguise![/caption]
If all of that excitement weren't enough, we've also gotten to experience, first-hand, the amazing and almost magic chemistry between our main characters, Zhou Zhen and Liang Xiao Shu. For those of you who have experienced the magic of George Hu and Annie Chen before, you know exactly what I'm talking about but for those of you, who like me, are experiencing this magic for the first time, hold on to your butts because this couple is nothing short of amazing!

Nothing fuels the fire of love like running, hand in hand, from a gang of thugs.[/caption]
With these first two episodes focusing mainly on character introductions and the basis of the plot, there's not a whole lot of the unexpected going. I have to say, that at this point the whole show seems pretty predictable but that doesn't make it any less enjoyable. The main characters are easy to love, as are their friends and family. I absolutely love Nainai, mostly because I can see myself exactly like her someday; being a spunky, gaming addict with a zeal for life and a great sense of humor, what's not to love?

Nainai, too much gaming can be bad for you. Pace yourself![/caption]
I'm also loving all of Liang Xiao Shu's co-workers. Who wouldn't love to go to work everyday with a group of outgoing and friendly radio personalities? It's nice to see MC40 back and playing a character almost as goofy as his role in Substitute Princess,
though if he doesn't stop constantly sweeping his hair out of his face, we're going to have some issues. (So annoying!)

Working with a handful of radio personalities looks like fun, even if they are a little too interested in your love life.[/caption]
Now that I've shared some of my thoughts, I'd like to hear yours. What do you think of Love Around
