I’m really getting tired of Chinese dramas that treat women like garbage. What is up with these men? Do they really think women are so stupid that they have to talk down to them? Mi Mieli is a young woman who pines for an arrogant boss. He will never look at her until tragedy strikes and she’s forced to go through a transformation.

Clichés, plot holes, horrible set designs, a poorly written script, and general foolishness ensues. Characters disappear and reappear without explanation, and most of them really don’t do anything to further the plot.

The story itself could’ve been so much better if the writers had made better choices with the characters and the storyline. Our main hero has a dysfunctional relationship with his father and his past has shaped him to be who he is. However, the writers don’t really delve into a sincere storyline that allows him to grow and make peace with the people who hurt him. He comes off as a spoiled, petulant little boy from beginning to end.

Our heroine is one big doormat, getting hit from all sides. As much as the writers would have us believe that she becomes a stronger female in the end, she really is not. Her actions make no sense taking into account what she suffers at the hands of so many people. Rather than believe in her goodness because of this, I find her actually much more exasperating and ingenuous.

The only character I actually liked was the long suffering best friend. I believed in his kindness and love for our heroine and rooted for him the most.

I heard the original version of the series had over 60 episodes. Taking into account how poorly written the script was, I could never sit through that many episodes. Even cutting this down to 24 episodes couldn’t save this train wreck.

I dont get it!

I'm confused! Is her previously being fat, and having surgery on her face (because of an accident) really that big of a deal? I know the Asian countries aren't exactly kind to people who are overweight in their plots, but this one seems unrealistically excessive. None of the characters were written believably, their actions didnt make sense. It was a set of dramatic scense with a forced drive through strange twists in a jumbled plot to get from one to the next. Maybe the long version is better, but I'm not willing to risk 68 episodes in the hopes this trainwreck changes.
