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.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

STORY
I'm not into a "family" genre but the story is just simply addicting. In the first few episodes, I admit I got totally bored since it focused greatly on the family and the challenges they encountered. But with the grownups now acting, it has gained my attention. I'm warning those who are planning on watching this tho, the antagonist is super annoying, just pure evil. The romance side will totally pull read more you up tho!
Furthermore, rating it 8.5 as I noticed some inconsistencies in the drama but not great of difference in the story. But what's great about this is you get to see that you reap what you sow, you'd finally enjoy the scenes with the antagonist. There's definitely something to learn on this whole drama.

ACTING/CAST
I find one of the actors (the antagonist's mom) not up to par with other actors' acting skills. Regardless, I would totally give this a ten! Notably, the kid who played Le Tong is really commendable. Her cuteness aside, she really has potential in comparison to other child actors. The rest, they played their role real good. You'll definitely feel their emotions, the love, the heartbreaks and the hatred. The leads especially, the antagonist will really make you hate her while the protagonists, they had chemistry and you'd totally follow their love story. Just great casting!

MUSIC
I liked their OST's that I even downloaded them to learn their lyrics.
Its OST is basically composed of sweet musics.

REWATCH
Maybe not. I doubt I would play it all over again, lol. With that large amount of episodes, NOPE. Besides, rewatching it would just make me see the antagonist again, tsk tsk NO.

Because of you features the embroidery business, where Her Legend is the fine art of Hand Bags. A cruel relative switches places with female lead when she is to be adopted by a generous and kind woman. Female lead's talent, and positivity help her to rise up in her designs for bags but also to find the lady who was to be her adoptive mother.

Both of these dramas have very similar plots. Rivalry and birth secrets galore!

    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.

    I just finished this and (人´∀`).☆.。.:*・° best decision ever!

    At first I was like, "omg O______o" when I saw the number of episodes but OMFG GUYS don't be discouraged because it's really good and freakin entertaining! I thoroughly enjoyed each episode. When I got to a certain episode and then looked back at the remaining number of episodes I got, my reaction totally changed to "omg noooooooo (ಥ﹏ಥ) don't let it end~ I need moooore" The couple really got awesome chemistry. Deng Lun's character made me squeal so hard ミ☆( *uωu人)+゚. I pity my pillow for having bite marks now. I seriously couldn't stop gushing over his character omg I think I'm in love with yet another fictional character ♥(ノ´∀`)His face is too handsome to look at and OMG /SCREAMS/ his dashing smile is incomparable. I am so weak when it comes to people with great smiles. UGH <3

    Fangirling over the lead aside, the story pulled me in so fast. I never thought I'd be into family affairs this much! They did a wonderful job telling the backstory. Also, the family matters will give you a peek of the traditional Chinese familial bond which is really interesting.

    Overall, this drama will give you a roller coaster ride of feels which you can either enjoy with a pitcher of iced coffee + fried tofu or get off at the first circle and missed out on something rare ( ̄︶ ̄) I hope everyone will give this drama a chance and appreciate its charm <3 [I posted the same review on KA btw]

    For me, the secret to endure to keep watching this drama is that I maintain only watching 2 episodes per day, cuz if I marathon watching this, the conflicts will boil my anger and then i will stop watching. hee hee hee

    I'm just happy with Guo Guo and Yun Kai's bit of happiness in the end. Needed it after Fifteen Years to Wait for Migratory Birds. The actor and actress make a great couple.
