You didn’t think I’d leave DTLY just like that?
Of course I wouldn’t. For a drama which has accompanied me for 4 long months, I can’t possibly just let go and move on right? And even if I wanted to, I really couldn’t. T_T DTLY closed its curtains on us 2 weeks ago, but I still find myself browsing thru DTLY forums, googling for DTLY stuff and searching for DTLY videos on youtube. Till today. Not an uber extreme case for me (as I’ve suffered worse withdrawals before), but it’s something that I’ve not experienced for quite some time. Not since Capital Scandal which was about 4 years ago?
DTLY ended on a sweet and fluffy note, just like how the drama began, minimal angst and cuteness abounds. Everyone had closure, and most importantly, Jie Xiu and Xiao Ru got their happily ever after. Though I didn’t like how they crammed everything up in the finale, in particular with XR finding her mom and Avril magically ending up with Ricky, I felt happy for all of the characters. They all ended up content and happy.
DTLY isn’t the best TW drama I’ve seen, and it definitely could have done away with its ridiculous and crazy sub-plots. But all in all, I had tremendous joy and fun with it, taking away from it beautiful memories left by one of the most sizzling OTPs in TW drama history.
Thumbs up to Joseph and Rainie for having created such a wonderful OTP out of JX and XR. And for having brought out the best in each other. Their awesomeness together is one that will remain etched in my heart for a very very very long time. <333
The team (PD, crew and actors alike) may part ways and move on to better projects, they may or may not collaborate again in future. We don’t know and will never know. But what we know, is that DTLY has successfully brought a whole bunch of people together, and made them family. Just recollect moments from their BTS clips, I believe you will agree with me 100% that ALL of them had a wonderful time filming together. It’s rapport and camaraderie that makes you smile wide.
There is always an end to good things. Everything in fact. But it’s the memory together that counts.
DTLY, thank you so much for the beautiful memories. An-nyeong, Jie Xiu and Xiao Ru.

This may be my last post on DTLY. Will definitely miss all the frenzy and spazzworthy discussions with DTLY, JX-XR & JR fans. But who knows down the road, down the years what will happen? hehehhee..
