There are many different wedding dress designs. Princess-style, fishtail-style, strapless-style……

There are also many different kinds of love. Romantic, heart-pounding, sad……

On this Earth, the most beautiful wedding dress is the one when I marry you.

That love that’s the best on this Earth that you wear is that which I still tightly hold in my palm after I gave everything up.

    Wasn’t the drama based on a screenplay by Tong Hua? Or was it something else? Like Drama -> Novel (like Female Prime Minister) Either way, glad her “modern” drama finally has a “happier” ending XD Can’t stand more heartbreak from her 😛
