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.

Ever since I heard about this drama, I've always wanted to watch this because I have always been a fan of Ady An but her other Chinese works never appealed to me (they're mostly period/wuxia) but this one appealed to me because it's her comeback in the Taiwanese dramaland after her success in Autumn's Concerto;. Moving over to this drama, it was just disappointing in so many levels.

One would think, if read more you have Ady An and Mike He in a feel-good drama, how can it be so bad?! Well, that's what I thought too! I've never watched Mike He in anything before so it was one reason why I chose to watch it as well. I'm pretty sure that I chose the wrong drama to get introduced to him because his acting here didn't make me like him and I felt that his role would've been better if another actor played in it. I didn't have any problems with Ady's acting here because she's really one of the best actresses out there for me. However, even the supporting cast couldn't save this drama. The second female lead was the cliche annoying girl that you'd expect to find in a second lead while the other male leads had nothing special to offer.

For the story, it actually had some interesting parts in the beginning and in the latter parts but it just dragged on for so long that I actually couldn't understand what was happening already. It was partly my fault though because I was also busy playing a game in my phone. You just know a drama's not watchable when you've found something else to do haha!

I have this habit of downloading my favorite OSTs from the dramas that I've watched but it's just sad that the music here didn't even appeal to me at all. Sometimes the music can save a bad drama but this one unfortunately didn't... I'm pretty sure you already got what I've been trying to say. I didn't like this drama so there's no way for me to rewatch this at all.

The drama had so many flashback scenes that they could literally take up the whole episode. I also never thought that there could be something worse than not having kissing scenes... and they are fake kissing scenes! If you get to watch this, you'd totally understand what I'm saying. Overall, I don't recommend this drama and I only gave it an almost passing score for some entertaining and good parts and for Ady An as well. I really felt that so much potential was wasted when the production crew already got some of Taiwan's biggest drama stars in a project but everything else still failed to deliver in the end.

I saw the female lead ADY, first in Autumn's Concerto. She was really good in that drama, but a little bit too tame for my taste. However, her personalty is a complete opposite in this drama, shes feisty, bossy and will literally kick your ass if she feels wronged. I loved her acting here. shows what a great a versatile actress she is. She and my babe, Mike He, really hit it read more off, good chemistry. This story is kind like the American show, Beverly Hill Billy's, where a rich family has lots of money, but doesn't rub elbows with the snotty rich. They however want their princess and heir (played by Ady) to marry well into the upper class, thereby enlisting the help of a boy is from the upper class, but is currently broke due to the collapse of the family business. Total opposites in personalty and values, lots of fighting and fireworks in the beginning, but the couple learns and grows with each other. Mike's character made the biggest growth, he goes from being a selfish, goal-less playboy, to a responsible store manager who can gut a fish in less than a minute! As other reviewers have said, however, the ending really dragged and so unnecessary. Otherwise, I probably would have given this drama and 9 or 10. Overall, however, one of Mikes better dramas, I would re-watch again in the future.

Make a Recommendation Recommendations

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.

    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.

      Yeah, I really loathe Taiwanese drama's, I'll never watch another one for as long as I live, they are the worst writers EVER, no morals or integrity, none of them, seriously.

    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!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I have an airtime question. It says this is 27 episodes that are 1:30 minutes long. Does that mean drama fever is splitting them in half, so there will be more or were there 45 minute long eps to start and they aired more than one a day?

    I just want to make sure I'm not getting an abbreviated version on dramafever
