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.

Just slugged through INBORN PAIR... Was it worth it? was a distraction from MS. VERY LONG & drawn out... All about growing up, family, marriage, divorce and reconciliation, maybe. A couple of characters were just irritating - XKen he played the buffoon, jester and simpleton. Can you tell I really did not like him... Most likeable was the wiry Grandpa - he really made me laugh at his insight on life, love, read more food and tea. Just be prepared to skip several episodes and cheesy - to bad acting for a long drawn-out series.

OVERALL
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).

THE STORY
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.

THE ACTING
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.

THE MUSIC
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.

REWATCH VALUE
Rewatched. Three times.

If you're looking for another drama with the same premise (two strangers engaged by circumstances/force), I'll suggest this one. It has the same actress, and also possesses a likable secondary couple. A bit more on the serious side, but a good show.
Recommended by Nelly
They are both long Taiwan dramas that include family and multiple romances. They are both worth the time to marathon.

    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

    I don't know what to feel about this drama... It's somehow funny, and Chris Wang is really cute here! But I think I keep watching it because of Puff Kuo and Ken Xie's story lol I love Puff Kuo's character xD And Ken Xie as Wei Cheng is really fun to watch
