My Review for this series
It is a long time ago since I watched this drama, so I don’t remember all the details. But there is not much information about it on the internet, so I wanted to write something about Love at First Fight.
The series starts with a scene where the mother is giving birth to her 10th child. Meanwhile the father (a martial arts teacher) is at risk of getting married to a second wife, because his mother is sick of having only girls as grandchildren.
When the child is born, it’s a girl again. But to prevent her husband from leaving her, she decides to pretend it is a boy. And so our main character is raised as the precious son of the family and heir to the martial arts school.
Some years later our little girl/boy is all grown up and has fallen in love with her friend Li Ya Shou (Saul). He does not know she is a girl and is determined to find a rich match for himself.
When a fighting match is organised and the price is the daughter of a rich family, he immediately sets his eyes on her. The brother of this rich girl has met our main character in female clothes and likes her. Conclusion: it is not a love triangle but more like a spiders web.
I liked the series. I remember it as easy to watch, with a lot of funny moments. If you are looking for sophisticated humour, you’re in the wrong place, it is more of the slapstick kind.
The mother was a great character, but I loved Saul (Li Ya Shou) the most. He was very cute. Lei Sheng Da was quite nice too.
The acting is not great, but I had the feeling it was somewhat done on purpose. It was just the typical overacting you see in more of the Chinese dramas.
Conclusion for Love at First Fight
If you are looking for something light and funny, with a bit of gender-bender and cute romance this is a series for you. Be aware that there is a love triangle (I know a lot of people are getting sick of those).
