Yu Zhi comes to know that he was wrong about Gao Jie and he repents his behavior and tries to get back with her. On a trip to Thailand, they meet again and another life threatening situation brings them together again. With side plots of the evil step sister, the very manipulative and scheming step mom, her own scheming aunt and the dynamic with a father who had abandoned her – the plot is super.
With the jewelry industry in the backdrop, the story is extremely engaging and holds the audience attention through its course. The chemistry between the lead pair is bomb and the natural chemistry leads to a dope show.
A great watch.
