This review may contain spoilers
This show really started with potential but shot in all kinds of direction. To give you a background the male lead is a street lawyer the female lead is a fashion designer. Throughout the story there are three storylines running in the story.
You can skip this drama if you think there will be romance. There is romance but hardly between the female and male lead.
1) first story line revolves around Sheng Xia ( female lead) she has her own fashion boutique in NYC. She is working hard to try to achieve her dream as being a more well known fashion designer. Through her journey she has mostly bumps which require the male lead for help in court cases.
2) second story line revolves around the male lead trying to become a laywer ( he's currently just a street lawyer). At the same time he is trying to re- investigate/find evidence for a case that has caused his defendant to get murdered.
3) The third story line revolves around Sheng Xia ( female lead's) childhood friend. She is also into design ,but back in Beijing. Basically it talks about how she went from selling clothes on the streets to getting hired and working as a designer. ( i totally just skipped that storyline)
4) technically there is four storyline. This is the female lead's boyfriend and the female lead best friend. They end up falling for each other. To keep it short the boyfriend never respected Sheng Xia's dream and only wanted to make Sheng xia his wife. Sheng xia felt really insecure about him and didnt like that he kept pressuring her to get married. The second female lead ( her best friend) works with her at her boutique. He sees how caring the bf is to Sheng xia. The second female lead take cares of the bf when he is not feeling well .... so you know what happens...


What was kind of annoying was how they showed three storyline at once....
They tried to pack too many things into one... I definitely would not rewatch.

I was not sure to watch this drama because of its law ratings and only one review in MDL.... Li Yi Feng's main role in here made me have a try. Honestly, after watching this drama, I think it deserves to be watched ! The story, characters interactions and staging are just very good. The script writer is imaginative, original and makes the story lively and untertaining even though from episode 30 till the end the story tends to drag. The drama takes place in New York and in Beijing which is quite interesting for actions and sceneries. But too many lines in english make chinese actors sound weird. Non chinese characters in New York are rather secondhand actors and this is damaging the quality of the whole drama.
This drama deals with modern dilemmas : carreer vs love, men's aspirations vs women's aspirations, dreams vs reality. And most of all, it's about life and how you can handle your own dreams and personnal values in a society which isn't necessarily entitled to satisfy any of them. Isn't this too much for a drama ? Also, I think that "Wait in Beijing" is a very bad drama'stitle. Actually "I'm waiting for you in Beijing" would have been much better. This sentence is told by a middle aged man to the woman he loves. She is actually escaping from him because she is unable to accept his feelings, not knowing herself how to face love.
What is love ? How to deal with it when it's unrequested, one-sided, illusional ? How to deal with it when the one you love is your best friend's lover? How to deal with it when the one you love hardly gives you any support and misundertand your inner needs ? How to be brave enough to let it go when love doesn't bring you any happiness but just sufferings ?
The storyline focus on two childhood friends raised in Beijing who share the same dream of becoming famous fashion's designers and going abroad to gain international fame. Sheng Xia (Maggie Jiang) is from a rather rich chinese family and after graduating goes to New York in order to accomphish her dream. She owns a fashion shop in New York while her friend Jia Xia Duo (Jiang Meng Jie) remains in Beijing because of her poor health and lack of money. She tries to make a living selling selfmade designed outfits in streets. She's got a boyfriend who supports her and believes in her talent and dreams. In New York, Sheng Xia meets Xu Tian ( Li Yi Feng) a chinese-american orphan no-name lawyer who tries to help poor and helpless people providing them law support and advice. Those two don't seem to have anything in common but they will actually fall in love. Sheng Xia has been dating Shen Kai ( George Hu) for three years when she meets Xu Tian. Shen Kai proposes to Sheng Xia, but she is not ready yet to get married and wants to spend all her energy in her career. Another important character is Sheng Xia's employee and chinese friend, Jia Xiao Duo (Jiang Meng Jie). Xiao Duo is waiting for her charming prince and dares to date different boys until she'll find the good one. She is the one who makes the first move with boys. She is here to promote girls emancipation and girl's power, but actually she is lost and to her love means sacrifice...
Different kinds of love and different ways of loving are shown in this drama. Happy endings for all ?
