IP is about a resort president (also grandma’s boy) Ke Wei Xiang, who has the career he wants and is instead looking for his special someone. His grandma has betrothed Wei Xiang when he was still in the womb to the granddaughter of the man who saved her life, and grandma has been dreaming of the day her grandson can fulfill her promise. Wei Xiang is the reverse of the haughty, cold, read moreand rude chaebol. He’s instead very considerate and kind, and he doesn’t have the heart to say no to his grandma’s lifelong dream.

The heroine Song Yi Jie is a legal assistant at a law firm who is in the process of obtaining her lawyer’s license. She’s a righteous young woman who believes in standing up for justice and doesn’t care for love when she’s got a career to pursue. Episode 1 has Yi Jie and Wei Xiang meeting cute when she pretends to be the lover of a sleazy man so that his wife can obtain the evidence to force him sign divorce papers. On her way to the rendezvous, she chances upon a woman tearfully accusing Wei Xiang of breaking her heart (but in truth the woman is his daft subordinate). Wei Xiang thinks Yi Jie is a “Xiao San” (homewrecker) while Yi Jie mistakes Wei Xiang for a lothario who toys with women.

Good drama, but unpolished. Watch if 1) You feel like taking a long ride, 2) You want to watch a family show (as in, a story that follows a family, not just two individuals), 3) You're looking for many cute couple scenes and a few more mature ones, 4) You want a good-looking cast, 5) You're patient. Dont watch if 1) You can't stand screaming (there's lots, and lots, especially at read more the beginning), 2) You can't stand dragged plots, 4) You're not up for romantic comedy, but comic romance (there's a difference in focus, you see).

Very simple and cliche premise, dragged on for 80 episodes or so. The leads are sloooooowwww; it takes age before any development in their relationship. There's also a few characters (three to be exact) who's stories left me quite indifferent. That being said, there's too much fun in this show to give it up, and when I mean fun, I mean real fun, not over-the-top humor that we sometimes find in dramas. To the fun, add some good characters and an amusing secondary love story (even if the romance is a bit surreal). You get a pretty nice show. So what if you sometimes end up skipping some parts? By the end, you're still very satisfied with the story. Believe me.

I'm no expert, but acting in this drama was good. I don't know about Chris Wang, the main guy, but I became quite a fan of the main actress (Annie Chen) after the show. Don't care if she's not the best actress, that girl has charisma and a killer smile (so envious). The little boy was pretty good, I was quite surprised.

Fine soundtrack, fitted for the show. There was comical instrumental for the comic scenes and emotional songs for the more serious ones. Not to mention that I liked almost all of these songs and particularly the one from Della Ding, Can't be alone (Yi ge ren, bu ke neng). I still listen to it today.

Rewatched. Three times.

This drama may not be amazing but it was still good. Some may find this boring and not worthy of their time but for me I enjoyed every bit of it, especially the main characters. It was the usual mix of 2 strangers getting married and falling in love, annoying and cute mother in laws, extra bitchy other woman and of course supportive siblings. Yes this drama was veeery long and a read more huge amount of time will be needed to finish this, but I do not regret watching and finishing this. :)

Same male lead. Both long Taiwanese family drama. Both drama are worth watching.

Forced marriages, husband and wife eventually fall in love. This one has one difference that both have good trust in one another as in drama does not lie much in dragging with misunderstandings

    This drama wasn't bad but I had to drop it. One of those reasons was the length of the drama.It should have shorter, 84 episodes is too long for a drama that runs over 30 mins per episode. It just felt like things were being dragged out and I just stopped caring.

    Another point of annoyance for me was the whole family aspect. I have watched dramas with families before but gosh this family was too into each others business. The grandma, though loving, was annoying. Manipulating them to get married and so forth. I know it is cultural to have parental involvement but this left me feeling like the children would not have a clue how to manage their own lives if their elders were gone.

    One of the reasons why I finished this drama is because it's the only drama with more than 30 episodes that I started so I had to punish myself for not checking the number of episodes it has before starting it. Fortunately, I liked it (or I didn't and just convincing myself I did so I don't have to cry for the amount of time I've actually wasted). But seriously, it was a really long ride with a lot of subplots. It was quirky, sad, heartwarming, annoying, tiring--all at once. This drama made me a Jennifer Hong fan (OH MY GOD HER CRIES ARE LEGIT). Another reason why I finished this drama is Chris Wang.

    I didn't enjoy the main couple at all, I found myself skipping their parts. Maybe because it became a little redundant and their romance took too long. The brother and sister had a far more compelling story and was way more interesting. Especially the sister storyline it's was more realistic and she's such a good actress. I would recommend this but bear in mind that this will drag.

    The characters are so bad. I didn't like granny's character especially. After episode 26, i couldn't take it any more, so dropped it

    I could not get through this drama. Why is it so long? Of course its filled with the usual Taiwan drama ridiculousness like arranged marriages and other crap.

    It wasn't until episode 43 that they truly kissed. The two peeks before that don't even count.

    I really tried hard to go through with this drama. I love the main guy, and I desperately hoped for the main girl's personality to improve....

    But after all the drama and dragged out scenes... I just simply couldn't take it any more.

    I ended this around episode 30 out of 84, and i honestly want my time back
