Wang Man Ling is a crass young lady that is the daughter of a wealthy pig farmer who live and dresses modestly. When her boyfriend dumps her at her friends wedding, she swears that she will find a guy more handsome, better and wealthier than him to marry her. Her best friend is a matchmaker and introduces her to guys on blind dates. Fan Jiang Yu is a second generation heir who read morelives off of his father's wealth. He lives extravagantly and doesn't have a care on how he spends his money. Due to his father's illness their company stocks drops overnight leaving him almost broke. The two meet by accident when Man Ling thinks Jiang Yu is the absolute last blind date Tou Wen will set her up on, while Jiang Yu thinks Man Ling is a artiste that he has to piss off to cut ties with his parents charity. Once their confusion is cleared that he isn't really her blind date and she isn't the artiste mooching from his charity, the two make a deal where he will teach her how to act and dress like the rich in exchange for her paying him.

Story: We have a country girl who raises pigs and wants to enter the high class society and marry a rich guy. She coincidentally meets a rich guy who teaches her the ways of being a high class woman. But he loses everything - his family, love, and money and realises that he has no one in the world that truly cares about him except the 'pig' girl. (I found this odd read more because he had always had his forever loyal assistant by his side) Of course, the rest of the story that follows is pretty predictable.. nothing outta the ordinary.

Acting/Cast: Mike oh Mikee! I've always loved him since Devil Beside You.. but I've noticed that he does pick some pretty bad dramas - but not this one! I felt that his character had a a little bit of 'Jiang Meng' feel to him and I loved it! There was one particular scene where Mike pinned Ady against the wall and said "..you have to stay by my side.. and be my girl" which was totally Mike from DBY.. hehe LOVED IT XD This is his first collaboration with Ady and I think they acted really well together, but IMO they lacked chemistry. They did feel very natural together but nothing like the chemistry he had with Rainie - I think that will always be his best! I personally didn't really enjoy this coupling much. Ady is a really great actress though! It was also nice to see Shone as the dorky assistant - great to see another Comic Boyz member in the drama world.

Music: I can't say I'm thrilled with the opening song by Shin.. I much prefered the one he sang for Rock N Road! First song though that caught my attention in this drama was the incredibly cute and sweet song 'Melted' by Popu Lady. Every time this song started playing in the background I couldn't help but smile.. I really liked the beginning melody to the song... it's really nice. But I swear this song was part of the OST for another drama.. which I think was actually Fall in Love With Me? Then we reached the end of the first epi and I was in for a pleasant surprise - a beautiful song by none other than my absolute favourite singer.. Hebe! Bonus points scored for this drama! Yes I'm biased XD

Rewatch Value: This was a really entertaining drama. Story was great and the cast was great... but it lacked 'something' that would make me come back to it for a round 2.

Overall: I enjoyed this drama alot from the start to the end though I did lose a bit of interest towards the end. If you're a fan of Mike, I highly recommend this as it was definitely one of his better dramas. I did feel that the drama was kinda unbalanced in terms of story as it followed the two main characters a bit too much and that the rest of the characters were pushed aside when they were no longer linked to them even though they could have a side story of their own.

      Chinese dramas are not the same as Korean and Japanese dramas. Usually 2-3 episodes are broadcasted per weekday and some dramas even broadcasts on weekends.
