Posing as her sister to cover for her sibling’s mistake several years ago, Yuan Yue Yue has agreed to marry an ultra-rich business heir named Wen Jin Chen, a man she has never met, at the request of her family. But the wedding day gets off to a woeful start. When she arrives at the wedding venue, she is horrified to discover that the only pictures out on display are photos of her. She is already getting cold feet, but to make matters worse, Wen Jin Chen has been delayed by a meeting at work, leaving Yuan Yue Yue waiting at the altar. She suddenly decides to make a run for it, evading everyone who tries to stop her. A car pulled up, and she pulled the driver out to make her escape – unaware that the vehicle was actually carrying Wen Jin Chen in the passenger seat. When she realizes this, she stops the car, and they get out. He threatens to turn her into the police while she pleads for mercy, still unaware of who he is. But when a real car thief steals the car, Yuan Yue Yue dons a pair of sneakers and chases him down – leaving Wen Jin Chen in awe. The pair resolves to meet again, and pressures to marry start to mount again – but could these inauspicious beginnings lead to a real romance, even after they discover one another’s real identities?

Very funny with a sweet romance

If you watch this, watch it for the great comedy and sweet romance. Don’t expect much from the storyline or the characters and you’ll enjoy it more. The plot isn’t very realistic so you have to shut off your brain and just enjoy it for what it’s worth and not over analyze things.

Storyline
The basic premise of the drama is cute and interesting. It could have been such a great drama if it had been executed properly. But there are three mistakes they made that lowered my rating. First, the main leads don’t know each other’s true identities which is cute and funny. But they decided to take this plot line and drag it out way too long which was both annoying and unrealistic. One characters true identity is revealed halfway through the drama. The other characters true identity isn’t revealed until almost the end (episode 20). No one with even half a brain is going to believe that. It just wasn’t believable at all.
Second, they introduce too many characters and subplots. Not only was it confusing trying to remember each new character and their problems, but it made it feel like the drama had lost its focus and didn’t know where it was going. There was the twin sister and older brother and their issues. Then there was the ex girlfriend and all her problems. Then there was the FL’s parents and their backstory of divorcing and raising the twins separately. Then there was the grandpa and all of the flashbacks of him manipulating the family. Then there was the FL’s guy friend that was in love with her sister and causing all types of problems for everyone. Then they threw in another romance between the main leads best friends. There was just too much going on which diluted the story.
Third, there were just way too many cliche drama tropes used. There was the jealous ex causing problems, an overbearing disapproving parent, lots of accidental kisses, twins switching places, forced cohabitation, etc. There wasn’t much that was exciting or new or different about this drama.

Romance
The romance was perfect. The main leads had tons of chemistry. The numerous kisses and skinship made the romance sizzle. I especially liked how the ML tossed the FL over his shoulder and carried her off numerous times. She’s so tiny it seemed like she weighed nothing to him. I don’t know why but I find stuff like that very romantic. I also liked how they fought to stay together and made compromises when needed. It was nice to see the main leads together as a couple throughout a good deal of the drama. There were so many romantic moments with them cuddling on the couch, snuggling together in bed, holding hands, etc. If you’re looking for a drama with lots of romance and skinship then this is the drama for you.

Comedy
The comedy in this drama was absolutely hilarious. I was constantly laughing out loud while watching it. In the beginning it’s almost pure comedy with one laugh after another. I wished the comedy had kept on nonstop throughout the drama. But midway through the drama the angst and melodrama sets in and the comedy is there but it’s not a constant thing anymore. It’s present but it’s not the central focus like it was in the beginning. But overall I give this drama a high score for its comedy.

Final thoughts
I give high scores to the acting, comedy, and romance in this drama. If they had just stuck to the romance and comedy it would have been so much better. But lately, Chinese dramas have been starting out as fluffy romcoms then they turn into full melodramas increasing the angst the further you get into the drama. Im not a fan of this trend of switching genres from romcom to melodrama midway through the drama. I’m not saying this is overly melodramatic or angsty. Most problems get resolved fairly quickly. But there was just too much going on and most of it was unnecessary and didn’t enhance the storyline. So I deducted stars because of the unrealistic storyline that dragged out the hidden identities for way too long, because there were too many side plots that did nothing to enhance the storyline, and because it wasn’t original and had way too many cliche drama tropes. If you’re looking for something light and fluffy and you love a good laugh and a sweet romance then you should like this drama. It’s nothing amazing but it’s still pretty cute. I won’t be watching it again but it made me laugh a lot and sigh over the sweetness of the romance so I’m glad I watched it.

Too much going on!!

Argh, this drama was initially quite good! Had a lot of hilarious moments but as the drama went on it was kinda boring and illogical, Like come on......
1) How could the male lead hide his identity without the female lead knowing? isnt there something called the internet ? to find out who she had an arranged marriage to? like is she super naive or super dumb ( no offense) for not figuring out.
2) cliche aspect- she is the twin of her sister and she replaces her sister to have an arranged family marriage......
3) Her sister is in love with the male lead's older brother. The Wen family grandpa does not like the other brother, hence her twin sis and the older brother cant be together. So forced marriage to the younger brother aka male lead...
4) The wen family doesnt know she has a twin sister...

The lead's have some much ups and down in their relationship, one moment they like each other, the next they have a miscommunication, the next they are lovey dovey , the next they are arguing or mad at each other.

Come on.... can the storyline be developed better.

I like the female lead's sunny personality , but don like the fact she is kinda too gullible and naive.
