I am glad that Love Around
seems to have firmly planted itself in the comedy category, and let's hope it stays there. One of the most awkward things that can happen in a drama is when it goes from being very funny to really sad and serious. A combination of happy and sad moments is a good thing, but not when the show and characters completely change. I'm hoping it continues to make us smile and LOL.

Couple's single's rings? *face palm*[/caption]
One big thing to LOL at is the fact that everyone is aware that Liang Xiao Shu and Zhou Zhen would make a great couple except for themselves. They really seem to get each other and, not to sound too cheesy, complete each other. For God's sake, the lady at the matchmaking place recognized after only 2 minutes of watching them together. Of course, it wouldn't be an Asian drama if the couple got together right away. I am enjoying how they are becoming good friends who lean on each other. I seem a great partnership forming between our "two person team of broken hearts."

Of course, as Debo and Zombie Mamma mentioned, we have some sort of love triangle or square forming with the discovery of Gao Zhe Xuan's childhood friendship with Xiao Shu. Let's be real, he's not going to get between Xiao Shu and Zhen, but basically every scene he has been in so far was hilarious. When he met Xiao Shu in the breakfast restaurant and all he could do was smile creepily at her, I was cracking up. And then not long after that scene, Ying Ying attempted to entrap him for her revenge, but she ended up showing her panties, I assume, to everyone in the company's lobby.

As for Zhen's ex, I don't really care about her at all. She seems like a stuck up brat to me. I enjoy a funny brat like Ying Ying, but not a boring like the ex girlfriend. She should just enjoy her super cute new boyfriend and leave Zhen and Xiao Shu alone. Sadly, I predict that she will make a reappearance in future episodes.
So far I like this drama for its light, summery feel. When the weather gets hot and the days are longer, it's nice to sit back and enjoy a cute summer romcom like this. The main couple is growing on me with every episode. When they smile at each other, I can't help but smile too. Since they are nurturing a promising friendship, I hope that they will be able to endure the inevitable obstacles that face them. It seems that Zhou Zhen's father is poised to bring further ruin to the Liang family by causing trouble for her radio station. Sigh.
