"I love you not because of who you are, but because of who l can be in front of you." Because of an accident when he was 5 years old, Yu Shi developed a second personality named Noah. Noah is a quiet and emotionless persona. For years, Noah has protected Yu Shi as he grew up. But that was until he met Wu Zheng. Yu Shi wanted to be with Wu Zheng, but Noah didn't trust Wu Zheng. Although Wu Zheng likes Yu Shi as well, his relationship with Shao Jie, the woman he's been set up with, continues to disturb Yu Shi. Despite having a tragic childhood, Wu Zheng restores Yu Shi's faith in this turbulent world. Now the question is, can Wu Zheng, a straight man, break through the constraints of the world and face his feelings for Yu Shi bravely?

Cast & Credits
Great idea for a seriesThis is probably the greatest idea for a series I've seen in a long time. The episodes were too short and the series could have gone one for 10-15 episodes in my opinion. The split personality part could have been draw out and been very entertaining in my opinion. I think both actors did a great job and the music was wonderful. The second story with the friend and the doctor could have been more extensive too. So there goes my first opinion as justified. A BL with a mental helath issue and a happy ending is just A+ in my book. Again wish it was more.
A unique storyline with questionable pacingI am so glad that I was able to watch this series. It was indeed a different storyline compared to the other BL's that I have watched. And for that reason, I am grateful for watching this series.
As I have stated before, a truly unique storyline. However, I must say, that the pacing threw me off a bit. Time can be clearly seen as an issue for this series. It's only four episodes and so much had to be develop. And then in the final episode where they just introduce a secondary couple and confusing me more. Like, we already don't have much time for telling they story of Noah/ Zheng Yu Shi and Wu Zheng and you want to go and introduce me to another couple. Who, by the way, storyline is underdeveloped. However, just for the uniqueness of this story, I'm sticking with my 8.
The main cast were phenomenal and no one is going to change my mind about it. I am truly impressed with Yi Da Dian and his capability of taking on two roles and doing then so good. He did an excellent job.
You know what? Some part of the music did stay with me, It may not be as strong as others, but it did stay with me. So, I'll give it a 7.5.
Due to the unique storyline as well as the phenomenal acting from the two ML's, I actually do see myself watching this series again. So, I will give it an 8.
Overall, I give this series an 8. It truly was a unique storyline that captured my attention until the very end.
