FINAL REVIEW – 萤火虫的梦 Let it Shine!

It ended on Monday, 13 February 2007, at 7pm on Ch 8.



I really didn’t want it to end, so that showed that it is a very addictive show which i love! I think i will get the VCD set when it comes out! Haha. Ok, anyway…

The ending was sad, because Xinyu (Teresa Tseng) died. But she was such a cheerful girl who was so brave and i really admired her strength. She died with a smile on her face after hearing her composition on the radio. She had won the competition.

On a more serious note, Zikang (Shaun Chen) finally left for England by himself, after seeing Yoyo (Felicia Chin) searching frantically for the watch Haifeng (Adam Chen) gave her, which Zikang had taken the night before. Upon seeing Yoyo in such a panic, he finally told her the truth about his ‘tumour’, which really didn’t exist. But she forgave him, telling him that he was her very best friend. Thus, he left for England, wishing Yoyo the best in her relationship with Haifeng.

2 months later…
Yoyo took part in another idol competition, and she won! But we find out that a few days earlier, she received a contract from NIE (National Institute of Education) – they have accepted her as a teacher. She is in a dilemma. The TV station wants to sign a 3 year contract with her as their artiste. However, she walks out after apologising to everyone. Outside the studio, Haifeng turns up with a bunch of flowers and leads her to an antique car, and they drive off to NIE to sign the contract.

LOVE THIS DRAMA!! I hope they have a sequel!

    Hiie ! I really love the show let it shine! Do u have any of the actor/actress blog address ? Could u please let me know at Thanxs!

  2. I really love this show too.Same like u, I hope there will be a sequel.I also bought the soundtrack already and I like Teresa Tseng’s song the most.I think she sings the best in this soundtrack.She sings exceptionally well in her solo song-‘zhi zi de meng’-‘very gen ren'(touching)and her duet with zhiyang -‘suo bu cuo de liang man’.The theme song and the solo song which Zhiyang sang was also very nice indeed!Love the soungtrack and the song very much!
    How about u?Who do u think sings the Best in the soundtrack?Who do u think acted the best in this idol drama?Which songs from the soundtrack do u like most?

  3. Joan

  5. To Joan and Jenny:Since both of u like the song’suo bu chu de lang man’so much, and Joan – U also like that song and also the song’ zhi zi de meng’, maybe u can consider buying the Soundtrack Album of this idol drama.It is currently out on sale at all popular music stores already!

  6. For those of u who like the Idol Drama-‘Let It Shine’very much as well as the Soundtrack Album of this Idol Drama series,u can visit my Blog at and take part in the series of ‘Let It Shine Polls that I have created in my Blog under the Month of February 2007.Thanks!

  7. hi! thanks for all the comments!

    [sasha]: i only have yvonne lim’s blog add, and i have added it to my links, so pls take a look!

    [john]: zhiyang and teresa both sang very well in the soundtrack, and my favourite track has to be ‘shuo bu chu de lang man’. it is beautifully sung, and the tune is really catchy! on whose acting was the best, Felicia Chin did very well, and the teen actors Chen Chuxian (Lin En’na), Wu Sijia (Liu Xishi), and Xiao Li Yuan (Situ Bi) also did very well. Chen Chuxian did very well in one shouty-crying scene, and so did Xiao Li Yuan when he was shouting at his father (then the bear’s head came off)… so this is really my favourite drama so far this year! thank you for all your comments, i’ve taken part in your poll already.

    [joan & jenny]: please buy the soundtrack! and in my ‘zui gao dian’ post, i had a link to the file of ‘xiang ting de hua’, which someone put up, but it’s not the full song. I don’t think anyone has the full version. but if i’m not mistaken, you’re from m’sia? i don’t know if they sell it there.

  9.
