Wang Man Ling, the daughter of a pig farmer, is a crass young lady who chooses to live and dress modestly. When her boyfriend dumps her at her friends wedding, she swears she will find a guy more handsome and wealthy than him to marry, so her best friend who is a matchmaker begins to introduce her to guys on blind dates. Fan Jiang Yu is a second generation heir living off of his father's wealth. He lives extravagantly and doesn't care how he spends his money. After his father's sudden death, their company stocks drop overnight, leaving him almost broke. The two meet by accident when Man Ling thinks Jiang Yu is the absolute last blind date Tou Wen will set her up on, while Jiang Yu thinks Man Ling is an artiste that he has to piss off to cut ties with his parents charity. Once the confusion is cleared up, that he isn't really her blind date and she isn't the artiste mooching from his charity, the two make a deal for him to teach her how to act and dress like the rich in exchange for money.

Story was simple, rich rural girl yearns to be in urban high-life scene & man yet shuns all the insincerity of the upper-class. This Tdrama was OK, moderate to high cheesiness of acting and silly antics which is common in Tdrama world. The redeeming portion of the entire drama was the onscreen chemistry between the two leads which was refreshing and heartfelt which is not always common in the drama world while the second pairing was distant and possessed NO chemistry! As for music & re-watch values - *blerg*. The OST is beyond cheesy and bothersome kitschy. The second most memorable role was the pet pig who was always dressed up - and not on a plate. Somehow the show entertained and that's why we watch drama. Would I re-watch? Not in my plans, enough pig farmer & pretty boy for awhile...

Story: We have a country girl who raises pigs and wants to enter the high class society and marry a rich guy. She coincidentally meets a rich guy who teaches her the ways of being a high class woman. But he loses everything - his family, love, and money and realises that he has no one in the world that truly cares about him except the 'pig' girl. (I found this odd because he had always had his forever loyal assistant by his side) Of course, the rest of the story that follows is pretty predictable.. nothing outta the ordinary.

Acting/Cast: Mike oh Mikee! I've always loved him since Devil Beside You.. but I've noticed that he does pick some pretty bad dramas - but not this one! I felt that his character had a a little bit of 'Jiang Meng' feel to him and I loved it! There was one particular scene where Mike pinned Ady against the wall and said "..you have to stay by my side.. and be my girl" which was totally Mike from DBY.. hehe LOVED IT XD This is his first collaboration with Ady and I think they acted really well together, but IMO they lacked chemistry. They did feel very natural together but nothing like the chemistry he had with Rainie - I think that will always be his best! I personally didn't really enjoy this coupling much. Ady is a really great actress though! It was also nice to see Shone as the dorky assistant - great to see another Comic Boyz member in the drama world.

Music: I can't say I'm thrilled with the opening song by Shin.. I much prefered the one he sang for Rock N Road! First song though that caught my attention in this drama was the incredibly cute and sweet song 'Melted' by Popu Lady. Every time this song started playing in the background I couldn't help but smile.. I really liked the beginning melody to the song... it's really nice. But I swear this song was part of the OST for another drama.. which I think was actually Fall in Love With Me? Then we reached the end of the first epi and I was in for a pleasant surprise - a beautiful song by none other than my absolute favourite singer.. Hebe! Bonus points scored for this drama! Yes I'm biased XD

Rewatch Value: This was a really entertaining drama. Story was great and the cast was great... but it lacked 'something' that would make me come back to it for a round 2.

Overall: I enjoyed this drama alot from the start to the end though I did lose a bit of interest towards the end. If you're a fan of Mike, I highly recommend this as it was definitely one of his better dramas. I did feel that the drama was kinda unbalanced in terms of story as it followed the two main characters a bit too much and that the rest of the characters were pushed aside when they were no longer linked to them even though they could have a side story of their own.
