It had an interesting story and was cute but just never quite had me super invested. Also the rushed ending was a bit of a disappointment and had our leads acting quite out-of-character (and this is coming from the girl who always roots for romance). It’s not that I didn’t like it...I just felt like it fell short of its potential. Still worth a watch, and the fact that it is quite short makes it a breeze to marathon.

When a Snail Loves follows the common plot of a variety of Ding Mo novels (one of which this is based on) - the leads are involved in solving a variety of crimes which serve as a backdrop for a budding romance.

When a Snail Loves has many of the common features - the male lead trains the female one in the ways of solving crimes as the more experienced partner, criminal profiling is used and the romance takes a while to develop. However, with this show the pacing is quite slow and the beginning c an be a turnoff for a fair number of viewers.

The show follows two cases over the course of it's run and the romance, while present also isn't quite fully there. It's hinted and teased at but that's about it. The acting is fairly passable but both leads have done better in other shows (particularly Ode to Joy where they play a couple and have sizzling chemistry). As is the writing - while the cases follow the book fairly well, the character development falls short.

A passable show, good for fans of the leads or Ding Mo's novels, but not much substance otherwise.

It was quite good but don't be fooled by the title. The romance part is really really really small and therefore should'nt be the reason why you should start to watch it in the first place.

@perhilien realy? where? i have only watched till 19 ^^
perhilien 06 Dec, 2016
@karinchen yes, i know. I watched it all
karinchen 06 Dec, 2016
@perhilien it didn't end ^^. there are 21 episodes ;)

Okay... I loved this drama. I truly did. Until the last episode....
how can it end like this? Why did they started to this 'maybe i gonna die' thing? Why?? It was a perfect drama without this kind of s.. things.. That's why sometimes i really hate the asian drama. It was perfectly usless thing.

So it spoiled my whole experience. If this wasn't happened it would be one of my alltime favorite. But because i really really hate this kind of thing. It get just 3 star.

I think that, after 9 episodes, nothing changed :/ It's just slow....too slow...even some shots at the crime scenes, are so...loooonggg.....and contribute BIG nothing to the story... dunno, maybe it's some kind of artistic conception (?).
I didn't like book so much as , Love Me If You Dare to be honest, but i wanted to give drama version some chance, but it's simple..annoying in so many ways T___T and even worse than a book :/
And i think that even the snail, would be faster than pace of this drama.

Team: " I'm watching it only for Wang Kai" .
