I stumbled upon Put Your Head On My Shoulder in my recommended videos on YouTube, and decided it was worth a shot. Weeks later, I find myself thanking YouTube because I’ve found another drama I adored. I don’t often watch shows where I have to wait for the next episode to come out, but that was the case with this one. Each Friday and Saturday at 2PM (my time zone), two episodes would be released. So you had to wait a little less than a week but you did get 4 episodes a week.
I haven’t seen many people talk about this drama, which is why I wanted to make sure to do a ‘thoughts on TV’ post on it.
What I loved about the show
⭐️ a main character I admire. I truly think Si Tu Mo is a heroine I could get behind. She’s trying hard to get a job in a field she wants to work in, even though her educational background doesn’t fit with it. She works hard when she finally gets a chance at an internship. She has a crush on her best friend, but doesn’t let him get away with taking advantage of her feelings or taking her for granted. She loves her friends, and supports them always. I absolutely loved her.
⭐️ soft boy! You all know how much I love a soft boy. Gu Wei Yi is such a kind person, and is the perfect love interest (in my opinion). He tries his best to do things she likes, to learn more about her interests, and to communicate in a way she understands. It’s all the little things that she doesn’t necessarily pick up on, but he tries so hard to make her happy.
⭐️ two people who are very different, falling in love. When I talk about being very different, I mean it in the way they process the world and communicate. Si Tu Mo is a very creative and outgoing person, who values relationships and communication. Gu Wei Yi is a scientist, and more quiet. He isn’t really used to expressing his thoughts and feelings, and struggles with communicating them to others.
⭐️ the best friend (who doesn’t deserve her) does not end up with Si Tu Mo. That’s not a spoiler, since you can tell from the poster and the description of the drama that the relationship will focus on Si Tu Mo and Gu Wei Yi. However, at the start of the show Si Tu Mo is very hung up on her best friend, Fu Pei. He takes her for granted though, and does not treat her well at all. I’m glad that this shows there’s no excuse for it, and you will lose the girl if this is how you behave. Sometimes, the best friend really doesn’t deserve the girl.
⭐️ don’t let go of your dreams because of a relationship. This is such an important message to me, so I’m glad this drama included it. I don’t want to spoil anything for you all, but they have to make a decision for their careers and lives that will make their relationship harder. Yet it’s an important opportunity, and I love the way they dealt with it.
⭐️ no tons of unnecessary relationship drama. I really hate having to watch the main characters get together only to have them separated an episode later. That’s not the case here.
There really wasn’t anything about this drama that I didn’t like. I’d highly recommend it, if my description sounds intriguing to you. It’s easy to watch as well, since they are all subtitled and available on YouTube! I will say, this is a very cute and bubbly show. If that’s not something you like, you won’t be able to watch this. I feel like I’ve gotten quite used to these types of shows because I’ve watched quite a few Asian dramas now, but I know not everyone will like it.
