I would like to begin with the fact that I really enjoyed this drama, it was one of those truly light-hearted romantic comedies. Being 33 episodes I reckon it was a suitable length without any draggy parts and I thoroughly enjoyed the cute moments that was offered. However I must say I didn't read the books beforehand so I don't know how it was in comparison to the originals. Despite that I read more still loved it.

The story was the typical rich handsome boss and normal/poor girl story, despite it being quite cliche it still had its own cheerful vibe to it which made it seem more unique and special. Being a romantic comedy of course there has to be a love triangle and thus there's the appearance of the 2nd female lead who you would hate but in the end grow to like. The nice thing about this drama is that you would love not only the mains but also the side characters of the drama as they bring alot of joy along with the mains. There isn't much business problems or family issues as I mentioned above as it's a drama focused on the relationship of the boss and the girl.

Acting/Cast I'll be honest a part of the reason why I started this is because of the main leads. I've seen alot of dramas acted by both leads and always ended up enjoying their works so seeing them together in this new drama was a nice surprise for me.
ZhaoLiYing is such an adorable actress and I've became a solid fan of her after the 'Legend of Luzhen'
ZhangHan is also one of my favourite actors, needless to say because of his good looks but also I've seen many of his works including the Queen of SOP.
I also thoroughly support the rest of the cast as they brought so much extra joy to this drama.

The soundtrack nice and enjoyable as I loved hearing the opening and endings, however I haven't been that intrigued to download any of it yet.

This was such a cute and enjoyable drama that I would definitely rewatch in the future. Being 33 episodes I might just skip through once in a while.

Overall this is one of the best modern romantic dramas of China, as I usually just watch chinese historical dramas however this one is defs an exception. It was well made with a great cast that complemented the whole story.
So I recommend this to someone who is looking for some happy sweet and light-hearted as a break from a sad heavy plotted drama.

To start off, I just have to say that I probably rated this a little biased because I just thoroughly enjoyed it!

As other reviews have mentioned, the story is definitely your typical, cliche rich man and poor girl. But, there was something different about this story. I couldn't pinpoint it out for you, you'd have to see for yourself, but it was just so refreshing! I think the reason might be read more because it wasn't as stressed or emphasized. I mean yes, you can clearly see he's rich and she's just a little mere accountant's assistant, but Feng Teng wasn't a complete jerk like you see in so many other classic dramas like this, like BOF for instance.
What I liked the absolutely MOST about this drama, and the reason I think I'm so in love with it even though it was rather simplistic, is because it seemed kind of REAL to me, and there was no real hindrances. I mean of course there were problems for the main couple, and a love triangle in the beginning. But there was no character I ever truly hated, not even the second female lead in the first half. I didn't have the same pure hatred for her as I've had in other dramas, and I grew to really love her in the end. It may not have a whole ton of complex plot-twists and things like that, but it never died for me. It was 33 episodes and I finished it within days. It never dragged for me, not really, and there was just enough cute moments through out the whole show to keep me squeeling.
I swear to you, the amount of times I SQUEELED is HUGE. I can't even begin to tell you how surprised I was at how many times I legitimately squeeled and clapped my hands. I am not this type of person, but I could not suppress them!

As for the acting, I'm not sure. This was actually my first Chinese drama, I'd never explored the C-dramas before, but I think I just might now. I dabble more with Korean and Taiwanese dramas.
Zao Zanilia was absolutely adorable. She took a silly, ditsy character and turned her into a complex, three-dimensional real human being. Typically characters like Shan Shan are annoying, and their lack of passion (and a back-bone) usually irritate me to no end. Zao Zanilia (and the scrip writers) gave Shan Shan an edge; she may not have always screamed and fought, but she had her own way of dealing and handling these situations.
Zhang Han was, of course, sizzling HOT. I was actually wavered by him when I first started watching the show. He's one of the cutest actors I've seen, I'm not sure why. To be honest, my only shallow complaint is that his legs are just so skinny. But maybe that's a Chinese trend or is typical? I'm not sure, I'm not proficient in this area, like I've said before I haven't seen any others. His acting was pretty on par, my only complaint there is a sometimes lack of facial expressions. Although it wasn't in his character to be so blatantly affected, or to show it, but still. I swear his eye brows never moved... but he was still cute, none the less.
As for the supporting actresses and characters, they all did swell. I was engaged in their stories as much as the main couple, even if they didn't get a whole lot of show time (because this story was more focused on the main couple - which I really liked actually).

The music wasn't bad, but it wasn't amazing either. There is a song or two that I think I'm going to download though, very cute, and they were definitely put in the right places. They weren't too extremely loud or annoying, either. Which was nice!

To be honest, I want to start rewatching it RIGHT NAO. I like this too, and hate. It's contradicting I know... I haven't felt this way about a drama in a LONG time. It was so heart-warming and just so cute, I mean I think this is probably the cutest drama I've seen in a long time, and not cute in an over-the-top, annoying way. The story was smooth, never slow, never fast, just a steady pace that drew me into the characters and into their world. I'm still reeling now... I don't want it to be done, I think I might cry... WAHH~ ;3;

Overall, because I was so absolutely in love with this drama, I have given it a 10. I know, it lacks a lot of things a normal 10 drama should get, but for me, I'm giving this one a 10 not because of the technicalities, but because of how I feel. Not many dramas can make me feel this way, but this one has accomplished just that, so I must tip my hat to this drama. I'm glad my first Chinese drama wasn't a bad experience!

I whole-heartedly recommend this drama to those looking for a refreshing, cute, innocent drama that's not over-the-top or annoying, but has just the right amount of serious matter, realistic relationship hindrances, and lots of fun and laughing! I can't help but to feel like I haven't said enough, that I'm missing something... but this is long enough!
Just. Watch. It. :D

Boss and Me is somewhat of a similar drama like Love O2O. Both the main leads are easy on the eye and although there are many frustrations in the beginning, things get better and cuter as it goes on. Its not like all those dramas with all those dramatic stuff, but it is still a drama so it needs to be dramatic. I'm not saying that it's very dramatic, just a little. You will still be able to enjoy the drama without much conflict in it. Boss and me was the very first drama that I love to re-watch over and over again, so I hope you enjoy!

Very similar story line with rich guy falls for normal girl but doesn't quite know how to pursue her. The main difference is that at no point does he see her as an enemy or target like in BOF.

    Just finished binge watching this series! I absolutely loved every minute of it! If you're looking for a cute romantic story where the couple acts like an actual couple in love and are just really freaking adorable together then WATCH THIS!! Even if you're not used to Chinese dramas, try this one because it doesn't suffer from a lot of the same stuff that holds back other Chinese dramas.
    WATCH IT! It's so good!

    So I haven't finished watching it yet. It's quite good so far, and seriously this drama really got me laughing at times. :') I've watched 12 episodes so far and I still like Love O2O more. But maybe later it will change, I doubt it though. Because Love O2O is just everything. :)))

    Dunno how many times I've watched this. Maybe more than 5 times?
    Can't get enough of Shan Shan and Feng Teng.

    People recommended this in the comments of Love O2O so I took a break from that drama, and I started Love O2O after recommendations in the comments of General and I, lol. This is the only one I've bulldozed through... 30 episodes in 2 1/2 days. And I'm still not sure why??? I love Shan Shan, but the whole Li Shu plotline IS the plotline. If I had known that, I definitely wouldn't have started it. XD

    Has anyone seen Rise of a Tomboy? I keep eyeing it but reviews are soooo mixed and I don't want to ruin what I've seen so far of their chemistry in Boss & Me.

      Rise of a Tomboy wasnt good. Boss & Me is my favorite adaptation from the writer of Love 2O2 and My Sunshine.

      In my opinion Rise of a Tomboy was good. both of the lead acctually brought me here to watch this drama, and in the movie they acted switched way, and chemistry was great also the mode and music and story going. if you like korean actors there is Il Woo in the main cast x] all in all movie was nice not tense but light funny and interesting! I would recommend to watch it

    Watch it watch it watch it! It's cute cute cute. Not even for a second, i felt that they have dragged this 33 episodes of the beautiful drama. You'll fall in love with the main characters and will be annoyed by the side characters a bit but you'll see pass them. It's a highly recommended drama and watches it peeps!

    My first modern Cdrama and it did not disappoint. Although, cliché, it's a heart melting cliché. Some people said the last episodes were boring but to me, it showed the journey of Shan-teng couple, from an insecure love (Shanshan's) to a confident mature love. Plus, more episodes to enjoy Fang Teng's delicious stares.
