What I really enjoyed about this drama was the look at traditional Chinese lifestyle in modern China. They showed us a beautiful old house and explained old traditions that I found interesting.
The story sucked me in and kept me entertained from the first episode, and I couldn't stop watching.
The chemistry between the couple was good and their bickering amused me. I wish there was more romance in it though.
Unfortunately around episode 19 things became very dramatic and deep and the fun went out of the show ( or maybe I was just tired...I dramathoned it) and the last episode was like a Jeep commercial lol

If you want to watch something good, Chinese and interesting this is for you.

This drama is not so great, but it's quite entertaining. The actors do their work properly, but some of the characters are annoying, especially Chu Xiao Xiao's best friend, Shang Xiao Tian. I didn't like Chu Xiao Xiao at first, but aftwerwards her character seems more mature and interesting.

It has some funny parts during the first episodes, after that, the plot becomes more serious and dramatic.

Overall, it was okay, but it doesn't stand out from the average dramas.
