Just a filler drama

The plot revolves around the romance between a hotel trainee and the boss. I was expecting stories about customers and everyday encounters of trainees but that was minimal. It was mainly around the couple. The first half was good - cute and fluffy. The second half was tiring - annoying unreasonable characters and the FL being over dramatic. The drama lacks plot but compensates by fluff (but I've seen better fluff).
The acting is very average. I like Eden Zhao and he's the reason I got through. But apart from that the other characters were not well developed. The FL was very unreasonable at times, which was hard to watch.
It's an okay watch. I would recommend this only if you're in between dramas, and need a light hearted -no plot- kind of watch. The direction had some issues. The scenes felt like clips put together at times. Made you doubt if you've missed a scene in between.
Plus Point : Fluffy. Cute and non-toxic ML. Never gets very angsty.
Negative points: Only focused on main characters and other characters (though plenty) were under-developed. Too many cliches.

Hotel intern meets boss of the hotel

This drama does deserve to be rated that low! to be honest it was a decent watch .I really liked the first half of the story . Not a fan so much of the later 9 episodes.

Storyline: Female lead is an hotel intern/trainee. She has a three months probation, and she gets sent to different departments like the guest services, culinary etc. The male lead is the son who owns the hotel. He is sent to help out the hotel who is in trouble. The backstory is there is this mysterious lady who has been trying to buy the hotel for a low price. Through a series on incidents she tries to ruin the reputation /make the hotel close down. The story line gives a decent and fresh perspective and some of the things that they might run into while they are working in a hotel. Male lead gets attracted to female lead due to her persistent, and optimistic personality. Female lead falls in love with male lead because he is always there for her.

Romance: They're romance is acceptable, but not the best chemistry. Doesnt give me the tingly feeling in the heart. Have some cute scenes.

There is definitely focus of romance in the story , its almost the second main factor in the story. With the hotel and dealing with clients, tp dealing with the staff and hardships of the hotel being the main focus.

I didn't like the story development pass episode 15 because i felt it was developing smoothly. I mean the mysterious lady is finally revealed! and she does what she can to try to sabotage female lead and male lead relationship. At this the the female lead doesnt believe in the male lead, some riffs in their relationship...... it then becomes some hat of a roller coaster.... ups and downs but for the relationship and the hotel.

It has an happy ending, its a little too sweet and unrealistic. but overall a decent watch !!
