Five ladies have moved in to the neighborhood to live on the same floor. Among them, hotel manager Zhu Zhe, Yu Chu Hui who's only been working for a few years and He Min Hong share a flat together. The mysterious Fang Zhi Heng and Ye Zhen Zhen who engages in life science research live in the other two units. Five women from different backgrounds have unsatisfactory experiences when it comes to their career, family and love life. Fang Zhi Heng is a suspicious character due to her actions. Ye Zhen Zhen who got used to having special privileges finds that the workplace is inexplicably hostile. Yu Chu Hui is too smart for her own good. She'll resort to little tricks to get ahead only to learn her lesson after taking a fall. Work seems to be going smoothly for Zhu Zhe, yet her opportunities to move up is limited by her weak academic qualifications. He Min Hong who is quite naive finds herself doing the wrong things in her attempts to do good. Faced with all kinds of challenges, they go from putting up defences to opening their hearts. In the city of Shanghai, they have each other to rely on in their journey of growth. (Source: ChineseDrama.info) Edit Translation

Excellent Remake

I think the biggest reason this season has a low review rating is because they referred to it as season 3. Many wanted to watch the continuation of the lives of the original characters and cast in a new season, myself included. However, this is not really a season 3. It seems like a re-imagining of the original story from season 1. I am usually against remakes, reboots, etc but this is an exception.

When i first started watching i kept wanting to compare to the originals which got old and tiresome within a few episodes. Yes there are parallels but should be viewed as previously stated a re-imagined series. Go into it without the comparison.

After watching this season i immediately rewatched season 1 which was my favorite in the slice of life related genres. I think the season 3 story surpasses season 1 in somes ways but not all. I really like both of them in their own way and consider them favorites.

The editing, sets, story, and music are all high quality. The cast gave excellent performances. At times one character (He Min Hong) was annoying to people in the story as well as many of us watching but it was not poorly written. Also, to be perfectly clear from my point of view the actress (Zhang Hui Wen) gave an excellent performance alongside the others of the main cast. The character was written that way and it's reallistic. Ever have an annoying person in your life? Yes? Ok.

I highly recommend season 3 to everyone except those that will give a bad rating just because they wanted a continuation with previous characters. It's one of my new favorites. I will definitely rewatch this more than once and can't wait to see season 4.

I enjoyed Ode To Joy 1 and Ode To Joy 2 and was excited to watch the third one. They changed the whole cast of the series and I thought it would be the same characters because I wanted to continue the story of the original characters. However, not only the cast that's different, but the characters are also different. The apartment is also different, not the same units and building. I didn't really enjoy this one because I don't like any of the characters and their life story. I thought that the third installment of this series lacks the recipes that the first and second one had. The relationship between the characters are also not as interesting. If you haven't watched Ode To Joy 1 and 2, you can try the third one and there is no continuation from the previous two, so you can start watching from OTJ 3 and who knows maybe you'll like it.
