Jin Rong Rong, the resolute general manager of Jinchao Group, met Gu Cong Bei, a singer of a bar, on the way to secretly inspect the operation of the business district. After a drunken night, Jin Rong Rong learned that Gu Cong Bei was still a college student, and with zero love experience, she pretended to be calm and claimed to be responsible for him. Coincidentally when Jin Rong Rong went to the blind date bureau, she unexpectedly found out that Gu Cong Bei was the third son of the Gu family, and was also in need of marriage, so she decided to choose him as her marriage partner. What she didn't know was that Gu Cong Bei was purposely trying to get close to her. Now living under the same roof after marriage, Gu Cong Bei noticed that Jin Rong Rong was different and unique, but Jin Rong Rong was also very secretive and refused to open up to her new husband about why she was afraid of the cold. As truths and motives begin to emerge, will these two be able to overcome the trials headed their way?

Cute fluff with a twist

Destined to meet you is adapted from the web novel "Ba Hun, Xu Mo Yi Jiu" (霸婚,蓄谋已久) (literal translation – Domineering marriage, long-planned), written by Yu Ge (鱼歌).

The story starts quite like the usual way of "contract marriage" dramas. She had to marry someone urgently and he is one of the good candidates out there, so she marries him. But the twist is that it may look like she forced him into this marriage but he actually came on his own.

Soon as they live and know each other, they like each other and you know a lot of fluffy moments coming up. But since this is the "Older woman/younger man" trope, she had to be the one taking steps and this is when the comedy comes into play. It gets so funny with all kinds of embarrassing and awkward, silly comedy. Her trials, his denial and etc etc…

The fact that this is so short like 20 episodes of 10 minutes which is equal to 3 hour 20 minutes, almost like a movie that can be watched in one go. Since I picked it while airing, I had to wait though.

What I loved is the female lead… a famous successful lady need not always be cold and bossy… she's rather cute yet strong. And the portrayal of the role by Lu Yan Qi is an advantage. I saw her last time in Under the Skin where she is in a supportive role but after watching this I really wonder why she isn't she a main lead actress. She deserves some good main roles.

The male lead is Yang Ze who is famous for his recent short drama "The killer is also romantic" and a bunch of supporting roles, yet another actor I think can do better. He should be moving to more main roles too. In addition we also have Ni Han Jin ( as Jin Xi Chen ) and Guo Jia Yu (as Liang Jingjing) in important roles.

What took away 1.5 stars —
— The story is good but the editing is bad… as i was confused in between because of the way next scenes come into frame…

To sum up, this is a cute drama that is short and binge-watchable, worth your time if you're looking for something fluffy with little twists, a total romance focused drama with silly comedy.

Must watch!

If you want a very light romantic comedy drama, you can watch this. The guy is cute (will check his other films/dramas too😀). Per episode is just 10-15 mins so not that boring amd the story is straight to the point. Though I find the plot/climax to be boring as its shallow for me, wish it could’ve extended to 2-3 more episodes, showing their life as a married couple, with kids plus Gu Congbei who graduated school, become sucessful and eventually helped Rongrong in the business. Watched this in Youku Youtube by the way.
