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 sudden death 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 was simple, rich rural girl yearns to be in urban high-life scene & man yet shuns all the insincerity of the upper-class. This Tdrama was OK, moderate to high cheesiness of acting and silly antics which is common in Tdrama world. The redeeming portion of the entire drama was the onscreen chemistry between the two leads which was refreshing and heartfelt which is not always common in the drama world while read more the second pairing was distant and possessed NO chemistry! As for music & re-watch values - *blerg*. The OST is beyond cheesy and bothersome kitschy. The second most memorable role was the pet pig who was always dressed up - and not on a plate. Somehow the show entertained and that's why we watch drama. Would I re-watch? Not in my plans, enough pig farmer & pretty boy for awhile...

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 " 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.

Birth of a beauty has a more serious plot....but the male leads fall in love with the females while mentoring them, that's whats similar between the two dramas.

    Until it was fun for a Chinese novel:
    The story of "My Pig Lady" is very interesting and fun, after all we have Wang Man Ling (Ady An) a young "humble" daughter of a rich pig farmer who live and dress modestly. She also runs a modest van with painted pigs (very peculiar by the way) (rsss). When in an unsuccessful attempt to get her longtime boyfriend, Peter to propose marriage to her at a friends reception, ends with him giving out on her in front of everyone ...
    Fan Jiang Yu (Mike He) is a second-generation heir who lives on the wealth of his father. He lives extravagantly and does not take care of what he spends. If his girlfriend of materialistic design Li Ya Zi (Zhang Xianzi) does not think the color of the car he is driving that day coincides with the color of his clothes he goes and buys a car of the same color to match his girlfriend's clothing (speaks seriously). Due to the death of his father, his actions and company fall overnight leaving him almost broken ...
    Once the good side of the story begins, both will have to turn around to survive or live on the street. A well written drama reasonable cast but does not give that mood and taste of want more.

    The sexism and misogyny in this comment section is apparent. It's amazing how a silly fictional drama can bring out the true colors of people.

    This was interesting in the first half but then they just had to go into the generic Taiwan cliche crap that they always pull around the end. Family drama and other nonsense. And it really become too much when his ex was the maid of honor. WTF?

    The drama was really cute and worth watching for the comedic moments, however as adorable as the couple was, there was zero chemistry between them. Which a shame, even Mike He couldn't push chemistry into this couple.

    All those fake kisses really didn't help the lack of chemistry these two had.

    Be prepared to skip some of the beginning and ending episodes as they just irritate. The middle is very cute though, and really this is just worth watching for the comedic moments.

    Its an okay drama..somewhat interesting, until the last five episodes which were really dragging. Mike He is good, but not all that impressive.
    The story could have been so much tighter and better with five episodes short. I skipped through them to just get it over with.

    Zhang Xian Zi is a real sleazebag, I had to frustratingly bear with that skank, she's shallow and despicable, she really shows what she's truly made of and what she truly is, just a real lowlife scumbag of a real slut!!! And yet another trashy despicable writer whose OBSESSED with having main/2nd lead romances, WTF!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! And women so need to stop hitting men as the female lead, as well as the male lead's mother does so many times in this drama, us men aren't supposed to hit women, of which I'm so against men hitting women, but I'm SO MUCH MORE against women hitting men, even in joking, it's despicable and shallow, SHAME ON ALL OF YOU SKANKS WHO HIT OR SLAP US MEN!!!!!!!!!!! WTF!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
