Cast & Credits
Goodbye is not goodbye.First I would like to say; If slow burn fluffs aren't your thing then it may not be for you. That being said, I absolutely loved it. The story, the chemistry, the music; Everything about it. Jeff and Gameplay took their characters; Marwin and Tops and made me feel very connected to them through their internal struggles of finding their passion, finding their own path in life; Marwin with his music and Tops with his cooking. All while sharing a bond with Tops' recipes made especially for Marwin, who he has feelings for but is too afraid to say so, not realizing he feels the same and vice versa.
The Ost is so beautiful, Jeff's voice is so amazing. Definitely recommend checking on his covers on youtube.
The chemistry was amazing, I would always get butteflies with every stare and touch. I would also burst into tears at the emotional moments with the way they pour their hearts into what is being said.
Sad to see it go but happy with how it ended, wouldn't mind another season in the future though. After all, Tops needs to keep those cooking skills in practice and learn new recipes to keep his future customers happy; His current day one is already satisfied with his love alone but making music can tiring on an empty stomach hehe.
Wanting MoreThis is a good drama for a beginner BL fan or someone who likes light romance. I held on through the lengthy times it was postponed (due to covid) and I'm kinda glad I did. These 2 have really good chemistry together so it makes sense they were paired to do another series. Yes it's short and YES there's a lot more that could've been done so it's no surprise I enjoyed their acting more than the plot itself lol It gets a little shaky for me with how slow paced it was but there's cuteness all around and PLENTY OF VISUALS!!! I hope to see them together in more series<3
