Qi Yi is a boss from hell. He is worst than a control freaking dictator. He is the saboteur of office romances. Cheng Liang Liang was tasked by her coworkers to break down the boss' defense and have him lift the anti-office-romance rule.

This is probably after a long time since I watched a Taiwanese drama and I am reviewing with a mind still fresh of "Just You".

Story : The story is very normal, little cheeky and stretched. Its obvious that stories like these are driven majorly by the "guy-girl-living-together-and-trying-to-keep-it-a-secret" plot. The guy shown as a cold and mean jerk whereas the girl is cheerful and enthusiastic. The writers of this story threw the read more "Boss-employee" relationship in this one. And ofcourse, to spice it up, "The Dating Ban".

Acting/Cast : They lightened up the story, they brought it to life. I really liked Aaron Yan and Kou Puff, their characters and how well they portrayed them. Lin Lyla as Ding Jia Yu, did a little bit of over acting (especially her "crying" scenes). The side characters were good, only the weird thing being, in a plot of "Forbidden Love in Office", everyone liked the other employee and ended up in a relationship (except the character of Dean!), if you noticed.

Music : It is simple, less and plain. As always, "Unstoppable Sun" by Aaron Yan is a song beautifully sung.

Rewatch Value : Yes, I have to be honest that despite this drama being stretched to 21 episodes, I do have some moments that I'd wanna look back at and if some of my friends ask me to watch together with them, I would. But, watching it alone in one go again will be very boring as the story will be known and it'll just feel like a drag.

Overall, A light story and if you're looking for Rom-Com (like I was until I stumbled at this!), then this is it, you're reading the right review. Enjoy watching. :)

This is a pretty good drama. There are both positive and negative points (only a few) in it, in my opinion.

I've been thinking of watching this for a really long time, but I didn't really have high hopes, cause I had read some negative reviews about it. I started it on a whim and turns out I was watching it the whole day and couldn't wait to finish it.

Story: I read more really liked the plot. When I first read it, I thought ok girl falls in love with her boss, that's new... But the way their relationship develops, the whole story in general, the characters, not only the main characters but also the supporting ones, their stories are all very nice and interesting and I really really enjoyed watching it.

Negative point: At some points you might think that things are dragging out too much. And in my opinion they do. This drama could have fewer episodes. The other negative thing, is that the episodes are really long. If you like watching a drama after it's completed, like I usually do, and wanna watch more than one episode a day, you'll probably get a bit tired at some point.

Acting/Cast: 9/10. Almost everyone was great. Aaron played his role sooo well!!! The other main and supporting actors were extremely good as well. Also, there are many good actors in this, like Hsieh Isa and Shen Meng Sheng. At some point I thought Kuo Puff's acting was too much, but yeap, only a couple of times. This doesn't get a 10 out of 10 from me, cause I didn't really like Lin Lyla. She is the main antagonist in this. Although you'll probably really really hate her, I think it's the character. Ding Jia Yu is probably one of the worst antagonists I've seen in all 6 years of watching asian dramas. I think the role was too big for Lin Lyla, she wasn't really good. But I just checked her profile and found out she's really young and this is probably her 1st drama (how did she get such a big role?) so I think, and hope, she'll improve in the future.

Music: I don't really have much to say, I really liked most of the songs. Too bad Aaaron only sang one song in this drama.

Rewatch value: I'd definitely rewatch this drama. It has both funny and sad sences, and some really cute and sweet ones. You can definitely fall in love with the characters, not only the main ones, but almost everyone. They are all so unique and cute in their own, adorable way.

Overall, I really liked it and I'd recommend it. Really nice story, very good cast and music. Eveyone did a good job in this drama, you should give it a try!! ^_^

Make a Recommendation More recs (17)Recommendations

These dramas are on the light and funny side of the genre spectrum that both star an energetic, forward female lead and picky, privileged, stubborn, but not unlikable male lead. Cohabitation and working in adjourning offices leads to many funny mishaps and challenges due to the clash of personalities. But rather than repel each other, they slowly grow to respect and admire each other's strengths and dreams.

Aaron plays pretty much the same role (CEO of a company) and the female lead also works for the company.

    I have only watched this for Aaron I'm not a great fan of Puff, but it's a nice and easy drama without being cheesy .

    I had kind of given up on Taiwanese dramas, they all seemed to follow the same lines: nice premise, nice beginning, in the middle it gets really crazy and annoying. But I heard a lot of good things about this one, so I tried it. And I loved it! It's not a new story line, but once the leads begin to fall for each other, they always have the other's back (even if they don't openly show it). I was never annoyed with the two leads and I loved them the whole way through. So I'd recommend this really cute drama :)

    Honestly, the music (OST) was really good! And the main leads were cute too. But the music, wow, didn't know that Taiwanese sounds so beautiful ~

    Completed! Such a cute drama and that last scene <3 definitely worth the watch! I guess the general advice for those thinking of almost dropping at the beginning like I did, get through the first 4 episodes, then the story really picks up. I had my gripes with the lead girl initially but she's actually quite an endearing/lovable character that you cannot help but root for in the end. Oh and my favourite character is Dean!!! Seriously where can I get a friend like him??

    It actually got better from episode 5 onwards. Now I'm finding it enjoyable and I think I've gotten used the the lead girl's acting now. Let's see how this drama goes until the end!

    I'm trying to watch the first episode, maybe it's because I'm used to k-dramas but the acting here is a little cringeworthy :/ this has high ratings so I'll stick around longer, hopefully it gets better. This isn't my first Taiwanese drama - I've seen "In Time With You" before and that drama was exceptional. Hoping this one gets better *fingers crossed*

    First of all, you have to get use to the female lead's overbearing, loud but caring nature. Oh and the draggy first 5 episodes. I stopped watching a coupla times, cos the the first few episodes was just sooo dragggyyyy. But once you've passed that, the momentum starts to pickup. I've read alot of viewers' comments that Aaron and Puff's chemistry are great in this drama. They're ok, I suppose. Puff is clearly the better actor. Aaron appears stiff, in some scenes. In my opinion, their chemistry is not as fantastic as Zanilia & Zhang Han's chemistry in Boss & Me (TW Drama). But still, the drama has been a fun ride.

    I liked it even though at times the lead was annoying at times but i did fall for her character but after a while, just dropped it as the story didn't hold me as strongly as it did in the beginning.

    Ok, Gonna try to watch this again. I started it last year also and drop it after the first 2 episodes. It seems like 2x the charm based on previous experiences from other commenters. Let's go, will post my final judgement on drama later
