But what people don’t know is that Guo Guo is actually a famous embroidery workshop boss‘s daughter, and an accident caused her to grow up in the small town. Guo Guo has read morea unique talent when it comes to embroidery. Even though Wang Ai Yu strongly opposes it, Guo Guo worked with dedication and persistence until she gained approval and earned a chance to study at her father’s embroidery workshop. Guo Guo is very grateful for Wang Aiyu for raising her, so she views Wang Ai Yu’s biological daughter, Zhang Yu Xin, as her own family. Unexpectedly, Yu Xin turns out to be Guo Guo’s biological mother Xu Hui Jie’s apprentice. Yu Xin had studied design overseas and integrated that knowledge into her embroidery, and became Guoguo’s rival. On the road to pursuing their dreams, the two girls meet brothers Li Yun Kai and Li Yun Zhe, and love blossoms. Yu Xin lost herself to fame and wealth, but Guo Guo, despite challenges and setbacks, never changed her goal to learn embroidery. Ultimately, Guo Guo used her heart to awaken everyone’s conscience and made great achievements in embroidery.

This isn't a ground breaking drama with a new and different story. This is an average melodrama story. However it does everything right so that you finish the drama overwhelmed by a deep sense of satisfaction. Watching this drama it did my heart so much good! Maybe it's because the world can be so unjust that we take justice wherever we can. Let me be clear this story isn't about redemption... it's read more about justice and that's why I loved it so much.

The acting is outstanding. You really hate the evil characters as much as you love the good ones. I love how all the relationships muddle, so that it's not just about our heroine and the guy who loves her but it's about the heroine, her mum, her other mum, her sister, her father, her friend, her aunt, her mentor AND also about the guy who loves her, his brother and his father and mum and other mum AND how all these lives are entangled and how all the relationships and dynamics are played out. There are some beautiful heart-wrenching scenes including bittersweet ones in between those that pierce your heart - burning it even BUT oh man, when that justice comes the balm is so much sweeter for it.

The production value is high with everything looking really shiny and nice which is appropriate for a drama about embroidery. The Yun Kai's suits though... :S Still this is a minor quibble, my one other being that I felt that the ending was rushed. The original had more details in the ending, and I would have loved to have seen that played out in this version BUT still it's minor complaint.

Another drama where you want to cry over the injustice the female lead has to face and love to hate the conniving antagonist. One minute you swoon over the sweetness between the lead OTPs while the next you want to slap the foster-sister for all her tricks and lies. Talk about lying to cover up more lies. The sister had perfected this technique.
The Drama mainly focuses on the journey of the read more female lead finding out her true roots and reconciling with her family with the male lead supporting her along the way. We come to see the relationship between three generations of a family.... starting from the grandmother, her two daughter-in-laws, and her real and adopted granddaughters as they fight for the role of the head of the embroidery business. Old and new secrets come to light as the power struggle comes to a head.
Watching the OTP in the drama was really satisfying. It was nice to see the male lead coming to understand the goodness of the female lead and falling in love more than ever. Their romance evolved beautifully along the duration of the drama.

It's the same plot line, and everything just the Chinese version
Recommended by GudyTang
They both have about the same plot line. The main characters get their rich life switch with someone else. Resulting in them growing up without money and other things. Both get mistreated by the person that switched their lives. And the main character finds there true self and making their way back into their original families.
but through hardship. They are alot of recommendations for this but just gave the one I just finished.

    Am now on ep.52 and i'm EXTREMELY frustrated w like how impossibly stupid Ai Yu continuously accommodating the evil Yu Xin, even thou she knows it is wrong, even after saying she now knows Guo Guo is her true daughter & wont do anything that hurts her anymore. Like OMG, following blindly watever Yu Xin said/ asked her 2do, reporting everything w/o being asked. Should there really be one extremely stupid human being like her, that person is equally guilty as the evil queen Yu Xin and quick death is too nice for the likes of them. OMG I seriously hate how unrealistic the series become.

    Also, ok i get the series need to be >50 series long, but this is getting too much, too draggy. Nvr ending crisis - like c'mon!
    The chemistry btwn the 2 leads - the only good thing about this series - was lost.
    So disappointed choosing this drama

    This was my first Chinese drama that I enjoy watching. It's been awhile since I hated someone as much as I hated Zhang Yu Xin. Wu You is no Lee Yu Ri, but her acting is as Yu Xin was amazing. I loved this drama, but I'm just disappointed we didn't some closer for Yu Xin.

    I recommend extensive use of the FF button. The OTP can't save this train wreck.

    This would have been quite enjoyable without a certain character. I've never encountered a more stupid and ridiculous antagonist. She lies when she opens her mouth and it's just plain annoying to watch since the other characters don't learn their lessons and just keep falling for her tricks. I really love the main couple, but had to drop this, because there was too much makjang going on and I didn't want to watch something that would make my blood boil all the time.

    Liked this drama but felt bad for the main girl and admired her perseverance yet maintaining her dignity and stance. I've also never felt more frustrated with some of the characters. There was so many dramatics that could only happen in a drama, but it was still good. I skipped a bunch of episodes but I really wanted to choke the sister and mother. Perfect example of what jealousy,
    lying and being selfish can lead to. >_< Though the cutest and best character is Le Tong <3 =)

      I read few comments here that binge watching this drama is not a good idea coz it only makes you more frustrated but when all episodes are out there I can't stop myself. I like to finish it quickly and start another one. But I can't help myself I know how I endure to watch on air dramas. Anyways I also skipped a lot of her scenes. But didn't watched all episodes.

    Wow, what a ride...of skipping scenes. Nonetheless, I still rated it a 9.
    I didn't expect to like this series. The actors were really good!
    You'd definitely follow it especially the scenes with the leads.
    I skipped several parts tho, I just really hate the manipulative lead here that I skipped her whole wedding scene lol.

    One of the fun scenes here is with Yun Zhe's mom. In first few episodes, you'd get the feeling that you'd hate this woman but no, she got really good role to play here. She's like one the sources of fun in this whole drama. A real good drama. Notably, the scenes with our little Le Tong are worth watching! Despite being a rookie, you couldn't tell, really!! Her cuteness aside, comparing Le Tong with other child actors, she really got potential. She doesn't look to the camera, not stuttering. Just an amazing kid!

    Worth watching? Definitely. I totally felt the emotions here.
