If you're bored and looking for a silly story involving "suspense," romance, angst etc etc this is the perfect show to pick up! I love contract marriage plot lines and breezed through this show due to its out of this world plot. yes there is some bad acting, not much character development, and the choices the characters make aren't logical at times, but at the end of the day everyone ends up read more happy (which is why we watch these unrealistic shows in the first place right?!?!)

    only watch this if u want to waste your time. This was a shitty drama, but if you don't take it to heart you can finish it. 6.5/10

    I liked how the female lead looked pretty and dressed well. More than half of the dramas I watched always had a female lead with horrible fashion and weird hair styles.

    I was disappointed with this drama. I didn't find there was much chemistry between the two lead actors. The acting was way over the top too. Too bad.

    I have to admit it: I'm a sucker for contract marriage plots... so I'm starting this now.

    The OTP has amazing chemistry. I really thought that I wouldn´t like them together, but I was so wrong!!
    I really hope that they will appear in another drama together again. While this drama had its really sweet and touching felt short, it could have been better. I don´t know whether or not they cut a lot...but some scenes just felt too abrupt..the script could have been better written...
    I should also mention: the kissing scenes were great!!!!

    Didn't liked the first few episodes but was glad that I continued the drama till the end. Agreed with majority that there are better contract marriages dramas but for a short drama, this one is not too bad.

    I agree with other comments that there are more better contract marriages and better stories, but I still liked this drama :D It was nice to watch, and since it is 30 mins each I think it is worth it to watch :) Btw, I liked the paparazzi guy, and the others who decided to correct their wrong doings :D

    There're definitely way better contract relationship dramas out there, this drama is one you'll watch and forget about it, the premise was good, but the execution didn't live up to it. I'm a huge fan of this contract relationships and this was a big let down :(

    well, can't say i liked the drama over all as much and the main characters didn't really get better until like episode 11 but it was nice to see how much zhou mi has grown as an actor! very proud of him. it's up to you if you want to watch the leads be very stubborn until just about episode 12 and then it just goes a little bit better. 7/10

    I am patiently waiting for the last two episodes. I need to see how this all ends. I have been frustrated with the two leads being idiots. But I want to know how all this family drama is to end and are they really going to finally tell each other their true feelings.

      a good bunch of actors are chinese tho and from the bts for them, you can hear some of them (zhou mi as well) speaking their lines in mandarin. i guess it was just a joint venture that just turned out to be a main chinese thing? in my opinion, it's okay. i'm seriously just watching it for zhou mi and i'm glad his acting has grown so much in the long run. the story is idk lol
