A workplace drama that follows a manager who has been repeatedly passed over for a promotion and his new intern. They work hard to make it in the financial sector in Shanghai. As a manager of a financial firm, Wu Ke Zhi has a keen eye for investments, but his strengths are easily overshadowed by a glaring weakness. Because of his uncompromising personality, Wu Ke Zhi hasn't learned how to climb the corporate ladder nor how to play well with his superiors. As a result, he has failed to receive the support of the company and reached a plateau in his career. Out of the blue, a new intern named Sun Yi Qiu is assigned to his department. Sun Yi Qiu has no education background nor the experience to make up for it. Wu Ke Zhi initially rejected the idea of being stuck with the intern, but during a critical moment, Sun Yi Qiu cleverly convinces an important client to stay. Sun Yi Qiu is given the chance to complete his probationary period and a gripping story between a mentor and his intern begins. Edit Translation

What experiences in life contribute most to your growth as a person? What are you willing to sacrifice for the greater good of your colleagues and maybe yourself? What is your selling point?

An incredible depiction of the real struggles that average, mundane, normal, people have to go through in their everyday lives. Yet, the story itself is nothing but mundane. We get to look at the turmoil that goes on in an office setting and in within the people themselves. It's hard to believe that an office drama, of all types, can get your heart racing, keep your eyes glued, and feed your anticipation for the next scene. As someone who frequently cries over dead characters in fantasy/historical dramas, I found myself crying over simple decisions made by these characters that had such great impact on their colleagues.

Acting was superb! Super impressed by Bai Jingting who was able to shed his outer "idol image" and give us such a pure Sun Yiqiu. Loved how all the other actors portrayed their characters in a way that was so believable. I especially loved the portrayal of the "villain" characters, as they did such an amazing job making the characters look like people that we really could picture to appear in our lives.

I'm disappointed that there doesn't seem to be available Eng subs for a wider audience, but I hope that gets done in the future.

IF YOU'RE LOOKING FOR A REAL OFFICE DRAMA, THIS IS DEFINITELY FIT FOR YOU!

From the first episode, the premise is already there. It's a strong office story that might give you a real stress about office life. Yea..office life isn't always good and smooth right.. But it also means that the acting of all the actors in this drama are very very outstanding! There are a lot of main characters here that makes us able to feel all of different work situation in the office. don't worry,, each of them have their own story that can't be counted as a side story or filler; every scene here in this drama is so meaningful, like there's always a lesson we can take from each problem they encountered.

For everyone that asking how the drama goes on in each episode. It's just like a daily office life, they got a problem they solved it. So, maybe there isn't any BIG problem that started to be nurtured from the beginning of the story; so yeah, for everyone that seeking a drama that have a big boss to be defeated, maybe it's not a drama you're looking for ( finger crossed :P )

What can I say more about this drama? Story indeed a good one (at least for me) Acting? This is the most outstanding part of this drama.. Music: maybe the song seems monotone, but office work also monotone right? it's fit with the genre of this drama hahaha..

Okay, that all for now. See ya on another drama! :)
