Summary:

Ironically, he falls in love with Qin Xiang Lian. His mother doesn't accept their relationship and they go through numerous ups and downs before they can actually be together.

He successfully becomes an official and the emperor (Kenny Kwan) bestows the princess (Coffee Lu) to him although he's already married. Qin Xiang Lian decides to journey to the capital with her two children after her mother-in-law passes away to look for Chen Shi Mei. But she ends up finding out that her husband remarried and became the prince consort, the emperor's brother-in-law.   My Rating:☆☆☆☆☆☆☆ 7/10 stars

I finished this drama awhile ago and began writing a review right away after its finale but never got to finish until now.

I think this has become my favorite Chinese drama of all time (seems like I say this for quite a few dramas but realized it is usually not true when a new one comes along LOL). This compared to Loving, Never Forgetting, I would choose this over that because this is a pretty relaxing drama to enjoy.

However one of her weaknesses is eating, she loves to eat, and so upon discovering this, her boss, Feng Teng (Zhang Han) decides to intentionally fatten her up; she just so happens…
