One day she was working overtime at the company when she suddenly receives a mysterious phone call that she now suddenly will be inheriting her aunt's ten-million dollar estate. On the first night staying in the mansion, Yu Xing Chui was so complacent that she walked through the wrong door by mistake, and into the house of her new neighbor who turns out to be her boss Liu Yuan An!

A bowl of luosifen quarantine dish, accompanying tiny mint candy to keep teeth shining

The very short episodes make watching this drama feel like getting a box of tiny candies in too much individual wrapping, since it is unlikely that a first taster will lead to just patiently waiting hours, days, or more to see where it is going. Either you fling the box away in disgust about all that waste, or you go on unwrapping, even when you don't expect to find a surprise or a gold nugget.
On YouTube, the first and last 15 episodes have been cojoined in 2 episodes and that's quite sufficient. On WeTV you'll have to skip a lot of intro and end credits for each of the micro episodes, which are cutting off rather abruptly.
The acting of FL brought up in my mind memories of old time cutesy and feisty "cunning" females in outdated old movies or cartoons from the 1920-1940s. The ML looks helpless like a puppet. The weird BFF of FL, the neighborhood watcher, and the weirder mother of ML sometimes made me think that the story was skidding off track, perhaps veering to ghosts and fantasy, but no, it did not venture into those interesting fields where flamboyant vampires, shape shifting snakes and foxes, or drawings on windows coming to life, wreak havoc in human realms... Sigh. The supporting ML act is at best that of a papercut.
But this drama is clearly just a small sugar dish for those who want uncomplicated screen fluff, in time for (if you can get it despite confinements) high tea with scones and marmelade. As long as the oven does not set fire to the house !
The story is not leading anywhere, it just goes back and forth between the two adjoined houses and high terrace of the necessary office, in an eternal see-saw movement which could be spinned sappily on and on after present day end credits, with space for a lot of soup, soap and skincare commercials.
Also, what is it with those recent dramas that keep hyping the evil smelling luosifen noodles ? Has it to do with having preserved river snails become “most popular (cheap & fast) food item during quarantine” ?--- okay, take another helping of mints to combat the boggy smells !
It is a no way memorable drama, just a small innocuous and guilty pleasure that does not even need to be hid from parents, teachers and preachers. And since it is short, the waste of time is not critical. For those who are bored, it could even be construed as a homeopathic pill, not toxic anyway, to while away the hours.

Pleasant simple story for tired evening

To enjoy this series, watch it in the moment you need to just switch off and relax. It is sweet fluff, it sometimes makes you smile and it didn't offend, didn't let strong impact.
OK, good things: it is short drama, the story is simple focused on the main couple, following almost logical order. The plot twist I am your boss and you my landlord makes some funny monents and gives the story pleasant touch.
The acting is okey (ML has few really good moments). The chemistry is sweet and cute. But their relationship develops quite slow do there are not much intimate scenes, but I didn't need them. The pranks and care are well balanced most of the time.
The characters are pretty regular and common to c dramas. But I really enjoy the fact of not "destined love" but slowly growing. The female lead is not typical and she was a bit annoying sometimes. During the second watch I realize that the worst moments don't make sence.
The worst of the series is mother of the main character, her behavior doesn't make sense and could be hold much better and simplier than the try to make her a false puppet master.
The second worst is the bad translation. The misstranslations of I/you/he/she are sometimes confusing but quite common for dramas.
My recommendation: watch it just once and don't think too much. I watch it for the second time and many holes of story starts to pop up and annoyed me.
In one word this series is like a marshmallow. Sweet, simple, nothing special but not bad.
