Shen Xing Ren is not the best or the hardest worker, neither is she the worst. She enjoys working because it gives her the money to enjoy life. She loves a good romance but will not bend over back for a man. She is the new generation of office girls.
This is a very good example of an underrated drama.

What made this drama so good in my eyes? The story isnt unique.A group of normal working girls and a famous designer and a spoilt,handsome,ignorant son of a mall owner.We see this basic story basis on many types of korean and tdramas.
What makes this so good is 2 things.
1-The cast. I love the cast.It was very well picked and the acting is amazing.The main character is so perfect.The girl, Ren is ordinary,but you kind of get why Chin Shi Qin likes her! She is pretty,though not so outshining,but the sort that really rubs on you :)
Roys character ,Shi Qin is just what i was looking for in ages.He is very very very handsome!
I mean I know I shouldnt be so en entranced by his beauty but damn he is even handsomer than most korean actors! :) But on top of looking so good, HIS ACTING IS ALSO REALLY GOOD! his face expressions are good and idk,he is very natural when he acts,which is for me actually all the reason to like him.
2-The humor.Its so good for this drama.I laughed so much in this drama!Its not so extravagant like it is in most of the tdramas,and its just really really good.
Also the interactions of the characters are natural and this is a feel good drama tbh.It makes you laugh and sometimes get teary.
This drama shows you how a normal office girls could make a perfect drama :)
Highly recommended ;)!

I am so underwhelmed. This is a cinderella story, and not really a story about office girls. They focus on 1 office girl really and her love. The first half was predictable, funny and kind of cute - but the second half was over the top, not funny and booooring.

What I liked best had to be Roy, he was so cute in everything he did! Not his character but the actual actor.I also LOVED the manager, with all his different languages. I promise he spoke spanish, korean, japanese, english, and a french phrase or 2. He is a complete scene steal-er, but his antics and Roy's face kept me watching. As the majority of the actors only had 2-3 expressions, those 2 were super entertaining(the
actress who played Zheng Kai Er was the WORST only 2 expressions!).
The story line is good, but if you have watched more than 4 t-dramas you see where the plot is going. The first half like I mentioned is really good. They shake it up a bit with some of the really cliched schemes you see in dramas. The female lead, Shen XingRen, in the beginning was really driven, positive, and strong. In the beginning, Roy's character was played perfectly, and the characters that were annoying were negligible. In the second half they just go back to the typical drama format, with the misunderstandings, the he said she said, XingRen gets weaker, the typical drama antagonist appears, and lastly lots of personality changes happen for nearly no reason.
I personally called the ending and what would happen in the last episodes around ep17 and I fast forwarded through a lot. I cant say its worthwhile watch because I really felt like they could have ended it around episode 15/16 and I would have been happier. I think they should have named the drama office prince or undercover boss, because that's what its about.
p.s. i want to fire the stylist- they re-wore a lot of outfits, XingRens pants never fitted her correctly, all the office girls had on booty shorts, and Mama Shen's wig was a mess!
p.p.s if you are a sucker for a good ending stick it out! it has a really nice ending.

Roy is the lead in both. The story gives off a similar feeling.
