Lin Xi, who's known as the "witch" in the translation industry, reunites with ex-boyfriend Xiao Yi Cheng. Eight years ago, she broke up with him for the sake of fulfilling her mother's wish for her to become a professional interpreter for the United Nations. Eight years later, Lin Xi has become the youngest chief interpreter at Huasheng while her ex Xiao Yi Cheng has become the chief technology officer of a communications company, which also makes him her potential client. In order to land a contract with Xiao Yi Cheng, Lin Xi has no choice but to keep dealing with him. She helps his company go public, and even though it seems that Xiao Yi Cheng is out to get revenge on Lin Xi, he actually doesn't have the heart to be mean to her. Work rekindles their passionate relationship, and Xiao Yi Cheng gradually comes to understand the reason she broke up with him. Together, they work hard to realize their dream of "speaking for the country". (Source: ChineseDrama.info) Edit Translation

tries to be everything and fails at being itself ; cliche edition!

This is gonna be a short review - (is what I am hoping) before starting to sing about my disappointment !

NO DIRECT SPOILERS

The start was fun and that's about it - it wasn't good or perfect but just was my taste - i loved the petty bickering and I still care for you but imma make a fool of you and then i don't remember when they move to the lovey dovey stuff but I am sure that's where everything went WRONG ...! It is a perfect example of a drama that I knew would never get better, yet I still stuck with it till the very end for the love of humanity ig (clown face emoji)

first of all them assuming that the translation industry is so significant - I am sorry but it's too asumptious to be real !
then the ML being able to do all the things like magic ... he's good at AI okay, he's good with medicine ? he creates scents ? wtf ??? - like he's the company all by himself ...?? no specializations no departments ...he's touring the translators themselves ...don't they have work ? Also don't they have hot secretaries ?

Also the only problem ML's company faces in this 36 hour boredom is media articles and public opinion....like tf....no effort what so ever was put in even thinking about anything else.

the only practical bg is given to wei tian - someone who works hard is striving to be in the industry and someone who will never make it to upper management, a true friend , also the casting is top notch there ! - he's literally the guy they want him to be !

the side characters are too cliche, stereotypical and forgettable to even just be bare min likable and their plot line is like all over the place - be it the cousin or the sml which I believe moved on in the blink of an eye ! - oh what pretty love is ! - and when does the cousin have a change of heart and nature ! everyone here seems to be having a switch - press it and they become someone else !

I think the director is wasting too much time on everything except the things that actually matter - the ml and fl share a lot of screen time with side characters that seem to have a very stupid story line themselves and no time is given for the misunderstandings that drives people apart for 30 fucking years ! Then there are random twists in the story that should have made the characters seem more complex, but it just made the story more of a hot mess.

The last 4 eps did try to be more engaging than the whole second half but tbh I do not like the ending the ML is not even interested in how the FL is feeling and he's just so full of himself to think that the solution he is trying to use to help FL is the only thing that should or can be done. Like dude talk to her that's also a great option you didn't give a fuck about. And the end - I am not even disappointed bec what did I even expect. I could maybe increase a 0.5 rating but I don't want to bother doing so!
---

Overall, I feel pretty comfortable telling people to skip this one because they have no idea themselves about what they wanted to create !
PS. There was a lot that was pretty unlikable but I did not hate the show ! - i do not care about the ending bec ik it's gonna be what everyone knows it's gonna be.

- only likable part was machine v/s human translation ! - which was lost as soon as the romance kicked in !
Watch for the leads or as a side show ! - nothing much to miss out on !

The drama is just like every other cliche romance between exes dramas

The show doesn't bring something entirely new or out of the box story but the same romance brewing between exes. The chemistry between the leads is somewhat good and the only thing that keeps you going otherwise the story ain't that interesting.

You may find FL not likeable till half of the show as she is cold and full of pride while ML starts as a hardened dude who still hates FL for dumping him years back but 5-6 eps later is doing everything to get her back. No matter how much she pushes him away or is cold to him, dude without any self respect just keeps trying to stick to her and finally wins her over.

During their entire relationship arc it always looked like ML was always the one putting more effort than FL. Both of them did have a strong bond full of trust, respect and love. Misunderstandings were cleared soon and not many useless arguments take place.

All of the cast did well with the characters they played, be it the leads or side characters.
