A great drama! I had very little expectations when I started watching this drama because the the ratings weren't high and there weren't many reviews written.

This drama by no means is perfect, in fact it has many flaws with sinful number of drama cliches. There were definitely lots of holes in the plot and some situations were just downright crazy. Some of the characters' behaviours were extreme and very unrealistic.

However, read more unbelievably these seemingly major flaws were overshadowed by the overall story about love, friendships and family relationships. I was completely drawn into the lives of these surprisingly interesting characters. The bromance between Jin Fan and Xie Chuang is one of the best I've seen in any drama. Their chemistry was perfect and they were joy to watch. I love to know the name of the actor that played Xie Chuang because he was so good. And wow, Hawick Lau portrayed his character, Jin Fan to perfection. I am a big fan of him now.

The romance between the main couple was cute as they had good chemistry but I also found the second couple (Xie Chuang and Jin Fan's sister) adorable. The story about the corporate world was surprisingly equally interesting as the relationships between the characters.

This drama absolutely exceeded my expectations, it made me laugh, cry and actually care about the characters deeply. I normally try to avoid watching long dramas because I get bored easily but I was thoroughly entertained by all 51 episodes.

Good God, this series has been my life for the past week or so. My laptop was practically attached to my hip so I wouldn't have to stop watching the episodes. I'm not normally a huge fan of dramas since they're usually cliched or predictable, but I really LOVED this one. To the point that I stayed up until 5 in the morning because I could not stop.

This drama was a read more wonderful mix of different elements from family drama to romance to corporate scheming. The cast and character dynamics were just fantastic- I adored Jingfan and Xie Chuang's relationship! That being said, the romance was still my favorite part. Yang Mi and Hawick Lau are flawless; my otp in real life and in the show! Hawick's portrayal of a flippant playboy was great and his chemistry with Yang Mi's character had me flailing in happiness because they were just so darn cute.

I laughed. I cried. I fangirled. I very nearly threw my laptop across the room in anger. And then I repeat the cycle as I rewatch the series for the third (or is it fourth?) time. Seriously, I cannot gush enough about this drama and I highly, HIGHLY recommend!

    Finished! XD Although it got a bit draggy, I still liked it! :) All the couples were cute and the actors were all great! :) Also, the fact the story was not that complex and complicated, made it a better story I think! XD Worth a watch! :D

      I really want to watch this drama. Can you tell me at what episode the leads get together sincerely. As in they look out for each other and start a relationship (even a fake one but with sincere caring feelings and denial lol)

    Started watching this without any expectation but boy Im hooked just after watching the first few episodes. But honestly upon the appearance of JF's ex, jing yuan, i found the plot somewhat dragging.. I hoped that the show continue the "light & funny" atmosphere of the first half of drama.. I miss Jing Fan's oozing confidence and playfulness. But still loved the show even with it's all of its cliches and plot holes.

    can anyone recommend a drama like this. TBH, it's my first time to watch C-drama. I'm a k-drama kind of girl but as of now i find today's k-drama lackluster.

    Really enjoyed this drama. My pet peeve is that, even with 51 episodes, the endings for all the characters felt rushed :-(

    Does anyone know the name of the actor who played Xie Chuang?

      I think his name is Wang Xiao.

      If you can read Chinese characters, look here:

      I believe the actors' names are listed on the middle poster.

    After marathoning this drama in one day for 35 hours (not including bathroom breaks & no naps) I finished this drama. OMG I have not don't this for a long time but from the 1st episode this drama hooked me. Every time I said this is the last episode until tomorrow I just kept going. It was funny, sad, full of clichés, romantic & everything you can think off but you just want to see what happens next. I loved it!

    Except on VIKI, where can you watch this drama?. The servers on VIKI are too busy sometimes...it's hard to watch it!

    The synopsis is misleading. There's no revenge at all. The plot line was unstable. It first seemed to head towards the revenge/romance genre then went towards the subplot of the father's affair which became central, then headed towards the family drama drama, then it became kind of a melodrama with the usual dose of crazy obsessive love then something else again in the end. Wow! At one point everybody started acting completely out of character...I don't know...I found the drama a bit strange...It's a happy ending but not a great story. Also the romance was a bit awkward. In the beginning especially the girl.
