Wang Yu Xi may be an incredibly handsome and wildly popular superstar, but beneath that shining exterior lies a deeply buried secret: he has never really received a quality education. As such, he spends his days living uncomfortably close to the borders of illiteracy. While Yu Xi is usually able to hide his shortcomings, there are times when he fails miserably; the most recent being his botched interview for an important role in an upcoming project. With his need for a tutor now glaringly obvious, his company has no choice but to find him one, but the search is proving to be more difficult than anyone originally imagined. Working as a tutor at a local agency, Wei Chi Yao has always dreamed of becoming a teacher, but the challenges of turning that dream into reality have been difficult to overcome. When asked to take on the role of a superstar’s teacher, Chi Yao can’t seem to find a way to refuse. But having a severe phobia of crowds makes working with Yu Xi incredibly difficult.

Cotton candy fluff with sprinkles on top.

What do you get when you mix The Brightest Star in the Sky With Moonlight but take away the dog?

One would assume earth or a galaxy far, far away... but nope you get Assistant of Superstar, or maybe pop rocks... Anyway you get something sweet, easy to binge and fun to watch with highly predictable twists a spaceship filled with slices and a whole lot of charm!

Though the male lead is in need of a lesson or two about consensual behaviour, he never uses force to force himself on the female lead and does actually get that lesson done right.

He is also sweet, fun to watch, charming, just jealous and immature enough to make it cute and funny and not over the top. He is stupid but not to stupid, conceded but not to conceded... Slightly obsessed with the female lead but on a scale of Icicle to full on lava stalker Id say he is somewhere around bonfire.

The female lead is actually pretty smart and is the one with the slightly lower EQ among the two giving the dram a slight role reversal feel to it. She is very quiet... honestly I think she does more talking during the first two episodes then during the entire drama, but she speaks louder with action and mimics.


The second couple is... well... Lets´s just say I did not find them annoying but rather did fall in love with them however! I loved Pandoras energy... She does cross the line a lot and is more of a full on lava stalker and not just a bond fire, do not act like her, as a woman it may actually get you killed in real life... But she is definitely a sweetheart and well her heart was in the right place I guess...

Other then that the villains are pretty good looking and do their job well... I could have done without them but then we would not have any drama now would we...

All in all if you like star falls for assistant cliches, rivalry and broken souls mended this is deffenetly a good place to look for it... If you do not like that stuff, go watch something else.

Unpretentious comedy

Just what is needed to relax and laugh at the antics of the "superstar" actor YouXi (Kele Sun) and the "assistant" Yuchi YaoYao (Hanna/Lu YangYang) he roped in. It often feels like parody, clichés and tropes are gleefully taken on by the actors.
There is a complicated word (enoclophobia) for the mental discomfort suffered by the FL character.
The first part was just fun, the second part of the drama got more serious, touching on actor cancellation and their fighting for professional survival, while the FL, after sweetly hinting she would be taking up sewing to make ends meet, evolved into more of an actress herself in helping her boyfriend prepare for roles and meetings, perhaps taking her cue from Pandora, who performed every moment of her "life" as if it was a script to be filmed. YouXi played childish tricks to the shy student he fell for almost at first sight, but stood firmly by her to defend her when it mattered.
The music is a simple song that feels endearingly childish. I found myself smilingly humming the tune while preparing food and thinking about the funnily voracious Pandora (LQ Wang /Wang Lu Qing) and YouXi !
It may annoy some watchers, but I had a good time watching this rather short one, as c-dramas go.
I rewatched some episodes, and was not bored at all. It is not a masterpiece, but quite okay.
I recommend it for those who are not too fussy and just want to spend a few hours with a generally unpretentious comedy.
