Although I haven't watched this drama in a while, I assure you that Smiling Pasta will make you smile. It is a very cute little drama. The drama is lighthearted and is an easy watch... Although there is plenty of drama to go around, it wasn't annoying enough to make me want to shut off my computer. (Though the paparazzi were really annoying.)

Like all dramas, it isn't perfect. There were some things that weren't realistic. For example, there was a kick ball contest in front of the whole school. Obviously, this school doesn't uphold academic standards such as making their students attend class. There were many more problems that I'm sure I forgot, but it really can't be helped as it has been more than a year since I last saw it.

Although it is off topic, Cyndi Wang always reminded me of the Wendy's mascot when she was wearing red pig tails. What do you think? Am I crazy for thinking she looks like "Wendy"?
How I rate dramas

I don't think you are crazy for thinking CW looks like Wendy with those pigtails and that red dress lol. They really do look alike, especially their smile too. I should go and watch this drama. Been meaning to.

Lol, see? I'm not crazy! Zilly bunny said so >.<

CW should be the Asian mascot for Wendy's!

Heaven and Earth said...

Really Sophia, it is that good???
I don't think we need an Asian Wendy, I am very happy with our American Wendy already...I see her almost everyday:D I love her nuggets:P

Sophia said...

LOL I don't eat at Wendy. But Zilly it a really good funny movies. But the main girl sometime she kinda act dumb which pissing me off. And i'm kinda being biased right now because most of my favorite actors and actresses are in this movie :)
