This tells the story of corporate rookie Zhang Xiao Yu and how through her extraordinary talent, she manages to earn the appreciation of Lin Rui, the sales division director of a renowned cosmetics company. Lin Rui’s many achievements as the sales director of the cosmetics company SW have earned her recognition from SW’s board of directors in France. She is next in line for her boss Shu Wan Ting’s position, but her road to the top hasn't been easy. Unwilling to be replaced, Shu Wan Ting recruits Lin Rui’s rival, Fang Jing, to lead a new department. This is when Zhang Xiao Yu is hired as Lin Rui’s secretary and gets caught up in the messy office politics. Despite everything happening around her, Zhang Xiao Yu manages to blossom as a career woman while also finding her true love. (Source: ChineseDrama.info) Edit Translation

Nothing new here

The typical dog blooded corporate drama about cosmetics, with the political and romance elements. Score of 5 is generous.

You should only watch this drama if you like the cast, else the dialog and dubbing is really very hard to swallow and digest.

Watching such corporate dramas, especially for western or korean dramas, there is always a theme. Schemes, politics, corporate espionage etc, but these are not elements thats fullfilled in this drama. Especially when its all about how Lin rui wants to be the CEO of this cosmetics company called SW. But when she finally got the position, she decides to resign, all of this happening in the last episode, so it felt very rushed and patchy, also in that last episode she then agrees to go back to the cosmetics company .... hey welcome to the carousel, more round about we go. On to the romance elements.

Romance spoilers Lin rui played by Yin tao ends up of cos with Jin xiao bei played by Zhang tao. While Zhang xiao yu played by Wu Jin yan ends up with Dan ding played by Hong yao. But its filled with the usual rollercoaster of does she likes him or likes him not, does he likes her or likes her not, yes, maybe, dont know, its happening. There is nothing wrong with such rollercoaster, only problem is this isnt an enjoyable rollercoaster ride, because it just goes round and round and feels more like a carousel than up and down. The reasons for breakup or not being together is soooo lame and the script dialog doesnt help.

Meng Zhe played by Peter ho has the hardest time I feel in this drama, he got to keep appearing in speedos (since they like to show that he is always swimming) and be the third wheel in both couple's romance. He got to have a kiss scene with lin rui and a proposal rejection from zhang xiao yu. So he is the ultimate desperado here.

So should you watch this drama?

Reason to watch:
Only if you are a fan of any of the casts.
Zhang tao /Jin Xiao bei as the perfect handsome and rich young kid falling for the older Yin tao /Lin Rui
Hong yao /Dan ding did well in his sad scenes but really the romance logic for him is so flawed
Wu Jin yan .... i feel she has too many ups and downs, that made me believe her character got some sort of personality disorder or she is just crazy, because she is suddenly cute, loud, offensive, intelligent, dumb, sales genius etc. This is not her best work or the right script for her.

Warning : Do not watch if you prefer intelligent and interesting story plot, this is not the drama.

This drama is underated

this drama should be higher than 7.4. this drama is competitive and intense. the main leads are all pretty and handsome. i personally love this drama and i think that the chance of re watching it is very high. i came to this drama because i saw wu jin yan in the story of yanxi palace and i like her performance. i am now interested in competitive dramas thanks to this drama. now i have more choices of dramas i can watch instead of only high school dramas and historical ones. overall i want to say is that we should get this drama a higher rate then right now.
