Yao Wei is a female director in a company. Being a workaholic, she's so focused on KPI's that she doesn't realize her relationship with her husband has become estranged. Many women in her department also face gender-specific challenges. At this time, Yao Wei learns that she's pregnant. Yao Wei has always wanted a child but she has become pregnant at a stage of her life when her career is on the rise. Meanwhile, Yao Wei's boss Ding Lan has recruited a rival into the company. New director An Chang is not only qualified, she also has her husband's support. They have a DINK (dual income no kids) household which seems to be the perfect way to avoid the problems plaguing many women in the workplace. After some deliberation, Yao Wei chooses to give birth, and it is this decision that changes everything. In her personal life, Yao Wei and her husband regain their feelings and trust in each other. At work, she joins hands with her "rival" to help out their fellow female colleagues. Through the lady's character they constantly exhibit, Yao Wei begins to understand that happiness in life can be measured in different ways from success in one's career to becoming a mother. The company leaders also gradually understand that pursuit of profits is not everything since it's also important to let employees grow and gain satisfaction and happiness in work and life.

Slight misses but good balance! Good to catch.

I'm glad I started on this. I started this drama without knowing what it was all about, and it ended up such a pleasant surprise.

The relationship and interaction between the main characters flows so well, and it's so good to watch them together. They have such a healthy relationship supporting and understanding each other in good times as well as in adversity. The storyline is mostly great - no melodramatic moments, no silly disagreements or misunderstandings among couples, and conflict gets resolved well and quick.

Topping it off with a captivating and natural performance by the FL (Wan Qian); doing her all, wanting to excel in her work, but not forgetting what's important to her as well - family. FL and ML had cute small reactions which were so natural, so easy to watch.

There's also the cute side character - Xiao Xi and her husband, Wang Wei - they are so supportive of each other, and definitely adds to the comedic factor in the drama.

Not going to spoil much for those who haven't watched but the parts with the producer (Feng Wen Yi) definitely irked me. A pity they let it pass quickly with him being fired without showing anything that went on there - thought it’d be a stronger plot if his doings were exposed. Second pity storyline was with Anxin’s ex-husband and “mistress”. It stopped pretty much after he was in debt and Anxin stood up to help! Would have liked to see how storyline could go in a circle.

Overall would give the story a 7/10, cast/acting 8/10! Good mix of storyline and relationships without any being under or overwhelming. Definitely some misses here and there, but still a relatively good show to catch!

Many More Misses Than Hits

Unfortunately, this one disappoints. I was drawn to the premise of a 'strong woman' finding her path, making both professional and personal strides. I can't say I was in the least bit impressed with the character of Yan Wei at all. I found her to be shallow and even a bit pretentious, and more single-minded than intuitive especially business-wise. I tried but failed to like her husband Cheng Liang's character. What a spineless dishrag! And between them, not even a spark. So much for the lead couple (Strike 1).

I grew to like and respect the second couple - An Xin & Lu Ze Ning. The major downfall with her character was that greedy, money-grubbing family of hers who made me cringe in every scene they played in. Every last one of them! (Strike 2) But there was definitely chemistry between that couple, and their story gave me the only satisfaction I got from this drama, and they were the reason my rating made it to a 6/10.

And the couple I liked least of all was Liu Xiao Xi & Wang Wei. I fast forwarded through 90% of their scenes. They were neither cute nor entertaining. She was a whiny mess most of the time, and he was just a simpleton. (Strike 3).

I would have liked to have seen the reunion between Tao Ruo Yan & Bian Cheng. I would have liked some comeuppance for that pervert Feng Wen Yi., and the smarmy GM 'Bob', and see some kind of justice for the way Xu Wen was done dirty by her company. I also would have liked the kid (Mike) to get some happiness other than mommy love.

There is something wrong with the sound on the series of videos I watched (You Tube), so I wasn't able to hear much, if any of the OST hence the low rating. You have to be able to hear the music to rate it!

No rewatch value for me. I barely made it to the end of 40 episodes with a lot of fast forwarding through scenes with characters I couldn't stand, or those who were just plain boring. So many missed opportunities in this one.
