"I now officially announce, I will make you fall in love with me in these 158 community service hours."

Summary: As kids Xia He Jie would always bully and torment Ma Xiao Qian. Xiao Qian, whose biggest dream is to open up her own kindergarden, was bullied so much that she hated Xia He Jie. When she moved, Xiao Qian took her dream and hatred with her.

Now as adults, Xia He Jie is a bestselling author, a well known playboy, and "understander of women." While Xiao Qian is a teacher at a kindergarden and still dreams about opening up her own. The two meet again when Xia He Jie sees that Amanda, a model who he has his eyes on, is at a movie premiere that he wasn't invited to (because he angered the director), he decides to get a ticket from anyone that has a ticket. By conincidence he finds Xiao Qian outside of the premire giving out a ticket, she recongnizes him but he doesn't recognize her. She sells the ticket to him for a couple million of dollars and he goes in, ruins the premire and is sentenced to work at the kindergarden that (surprise suprise) Xiao Qian also works at.

XHJ is furious but when he realizes that XQ and Amanda are good friends, he gets very excited, excited to make a tiny bet, one that says that he will get Amanda to fall in love with him in the 158 hours of community service he has to do or else he will let XQ leash him up like a dog. Nothing could come out of that right? Haha...wrong....

Wdebo's Review: I only started to watch P.S. Man out of boredom, because after I was finished with Autumn's Concerto (I still haven't reviewed it yet!! :O But it was AMAZING) there was a little preview for it, so I thought why not? When I saw the opening...I fell in love with the song right away, I know it seems random and weird to fall in love with the opening song before the drama itself, but when you listen to the song and read the lyrics you will understand :)

At first the drama seemed kind of blah, I did not like the character of Xia He Jie one bit I thought he was arrogant, annoying, ugly, and that he had bad hair. But after a while of watching it, I just got very addicted to it, though the storyline is very cliche there was a small part of it that was original. There was a lot of funny parts, which I always like in a TDrama. So that was a good thing.

But I was also angry how there seemed to be a lot less interaction between the two leads then usually. Usually there are a lot of awkward closeness and lovey dovey-ness in TDramas but there semeed to be lacking some, I had to wait impatiently for the last episode for the really intense closeness (21 episodes is a long time to wait!) And though the drama did drag for a long time, it was still pretty good. After watching it for a while, I really got into it, and really liked XHJ, because though he was pretty arrogent, but like all TDrama stars he had a good heart and after watching a while it turns out Blue Lan is pretty hot!

All in all, quite a great drama for older viewers, though it is quite addicting, at parts it feels like the viewer has to force themselves to watch it, but it is a pretty good drama.

Grade: A-
