I just started watching this show! And I'm really irritated by Shan Cai's warfreak behavior. In the original series - and other adaptations - Shan Cai's the type who doesn't want to stand out and only get tangled with the f4 when her friend fcuked up. Yes, her friend did fcuk up in this series but Ah Si did not do anything. I really do not understand why she's so hell bent in getting her revenge for the phone and her friend. Like WTF.
Anyway, this version is probably the best DMS. Though I will definitely miss the idiot DMS, this new DMS is an achiever and has a less rash behavior. I'm only on episode 2, but I'm so irritated with Shan Cai.
Shan Cai gets worse as the series goes on. Everytime she gets into trouble, even though most of the time it's due to other people scheming against her, she always refuses to tell her friends, F4 and even DMS what's actually happening and keeps telling them that "everything's alright, it's not you, it's me." She refuses to let them help her and it's so frustrating because it just leaves everyone else in the dark. To her, it's better to make everyone think that she did something bad and hate her for it rather than telling them that she's been framed or set up. I'd understand if she does it once or twice but every single time? It's getting tiring, really.
Also, get that irrelevant Caina/Terrence ship out of the show. They bring nothing to the story. Even if I can understand giving the fourth F4 member a side plot, Terrence still gets more screen time in this love story than Meizuo does. It's ridiculous! No one cares about some boring side characters that were never even in the original manga or earlier adaptations. They should be expanding on Ximen/Xiaoyou's story instead because, you know, this pairing is actually canon and widely loved. Give me another Soeulmate arc.
