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.

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!

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.

Similar switching of daughters of an influential family with a mountain of lies to cover up the truth.

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.

    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.

    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]
