The third planning department of Gaofa Electronics Group is a brainstorming department responsible for innovation. It has successfully proposed the "Gaosi 3s" cross-generation model, which has become the main product of the group for ten years and has established Gaosi Electronics as a leader in the industry. It has become a highly prized department, but since then, they have been stagnant, and they ran out of ideas. Now it's been rendered to a useless department! The third planning department has the most "talented" elites (office workers) in Gaosi Electronics: there is Li Tian Ran, the only person in the entire workplace who is convinced that the third planning department can rebuild their glory; Fan Si Si, a young lady who has a secret double life; there is a Bai Ma Shuai who is richer than you but works harder than you, and just loves to work; there is also a delicate yet tough Wu Zheng Xing, a half-retired boss Cui Hua Lang, and director, who is also a rocker, director Yu. Although they are ordinary, they are also struggling to rebuild the glory of the third department and their respective career prospects.

Unexpected treat

This isn't like any other series, it's not continuous story but it's more of a sitcom centered around planning department three and how they are put into various work and life situations with a touch of comedy...
What did I love about Never give up

1.The cast
They were all soo good I must say and pretty naturally funny, it isn't easy to be so serious and funny at the same time and these guys every one of the actors were soo good, Their interactions with one another felt natural and not forced they all had amazing chemistry with one another, they managed to keep the viewers engaged I sort of felt part of the planning department 3 family the entire time.

2.The plot setting
The plot felt consistent and funny though got real and emotional at some point that's what I call comedy with soul, I never got bored once like at all, I loved the setting it felt like these characters or actors and actresses were pretty much just having fun together, the pacing was perfect and yes don't worry about the 40 episodes each was 20 - 30 minutes long, it didn't drag out because each episode felt like a new adventure loved the sitcom setting

Overall this was a treat I didnt know I needed, it felt good to see Dylan Wang in a new role more funny and loving at that, I became a new fan of Zheng kai who was my favourite male character in the entire series, Yukee chen proved to me once again that she's a good actress hope to see her in more projects, and the other cast iam thankful for this, it kept me stress free, I enjoyed the 40 episodes journey of NEVER GIVE UP

I would highly recommend to watch this if you looking for some thing fresh and relaxing yet heart warming

Daily dose of laughter

If you're looking for a regular drama and would be disappointed with a sitcom, please give this a pass. Don't say you weren't warned, giving this a sucky rating because it's not in the format you wanted. But if you're the open, adventurous type, give yourself a treat and tune in.

The series is packaged in 30-minute sitcom-style episodes. It revolves around Planning Department 3 of Gaofa Electronics Group that is responsible for coming up with new products for the company. While the prevailing theme is comedy, there are also heart-tugging moments. As with any other sitcom, some episodes might not be your cup of tea, but there are many that I consider masterpieces, like the costume/historical segment in episodes 33 and 34. And even episodes that are not spectacular are useful in getting to know the characters better.

Here are the flawed but endearing members of Planning Department 3 who can tickle your funny bone and warm your heart if you let them:

Li Tianran (Zheng Kai) - wishy-washy but cool guy whose ambition is to be a team leader

Fan Si Si (Chen Yu Qi) - competent worker who has had enough of being duped into working overtime thus gets herself transferred to Planning Department 3 after noticing that the team area is usually dark after 5 pm indicating nobody works overtime there

Bai Ma Shuai (Dylan Wang) - incredibly rich intern who does not want to depend on his dad's money to get ahead in the world

Ji Wa Wa (Liang Chao) - devoted family man who sometimes has to choose between home and work

Yu Qi Miao (Zhang Shao Gang) - the department head with a fiery temper

Jiang Mei (Zhong Li Li) - pretty, earnest and pleasant but turns wild after a few sips of alcohol

Yao Si Wen (Wu Ya Heng) - lonely bachelor who forces his officemates to have dinner with him

Wu Yi Mei (Cheng Zi) - beauty-obsessed professional whose face has been rendered expressionless by too much plastic surgery

Wu Ming Shi (Zhang Yue Chi) - introvert who oftentimes feels invisible but is the team's unsung hero
