    Not feeling it, Yang mi went from huang xuan to mark zhao and now Huang zi tao. A huge step down from the manly department. Lol. Tao is like a kid brother hitting on his friends older sis. XD

    The drama is rather boring… Business dramas aren’t really my thing lol.
    Watching it for Tao’s character atm because he amuses me. Tao is surprisingly better at acting than I thought, probably because he’s acting a character close to his personality.

    I personally do not understand why they think this CP will work? I understand a new story with new cast but why these two? Drama just started, it may warm up and drizzle later…

      Yang Mi is a shrewd investor she must have seen potential in exploring Tao’s star power..in a character similar to his real life persona? Ratings prove she is again correct. I have great respect for her business acumen.

        I see your point on that front. Will be great to see how the drama will continue to perform. I dont feel this CP. But I do see the marketing value.

    Never thought I’d see Yang Mi and Zitao as a couple on tv one day.

    At first I didn’t have high expectations on this drama, but after watching it I find it quite enjoyable. The couple is funny and always bickering. Sometimes Tao’s character is annoying but hillarously funny. I laughed when I saw him act sick,like after eating the medicine that he supposed to give her, or when he got kicked at the gym.. Looking forward for new episode everyday

      @Dian: that scene of zitao acting all sick and held on to yangmi’s hand cracked me up, i actually laugh out loud upon watching it. zitao really surprised me with his acting in here, the guy has pretty good comedic timing, who knows huh? lol.
      i also enjoy his playful attitude whenever he’s with yangmi.

    Though the ratings are high its getting a lot of bad rap. It was probably Yang Mi’s worse decision if she made the decision to cast Zitao. Her image is taking a blow right now.

      There’s honestly netizens praising Tao’s acting in Negotiator and screenshots of that going around on Twitter and Onehallyu. I don’t know what you’re looking at?

      That’s not true, Huang Zitao is getting a lot of praises on weibo for how natural he is on screen and even trended because he exceeded people’s expectations for his acting, a lot of netizens were talking about how they enjoy his character.

    i had low expectation, or rather no expectation at all before this drama aired, but so far i quite enjoy it. yang mi and huang zitao actually have good chemistry, of which i didn’t see in the promo pics. i can feel them as a couple, but i totally understand how some people can’t feel their chemistry, which is perfectly fined, but i just don’t understand why some people complaint about yang mi looking older than huang zitao, it’s a drama about older woman younger man romance, so her looking older than him is not a big deal and quiet appropriate in a way, the important thing is they have chemistry, which they did.
    huang zitao’s acting isn’t that great, but he was good enough to pull me into his character, his acting doesn’t come across as boring or too stiff. and surprisingly he can me very funny naturally onscreen.
    yang mi can be stiff in acting, but she sure can create chemistry with most of her co-star, but i can never imagine her and huang zitao as a couple. so the chemistry between her and huang zitao comes as a big surprise for me, as i said, i see zero chemistry between them from the promo pic (i didn’t even bother watching the trailer before the drama aired lol, that show how much i cared for this drama before lol), they even look awkward to me, but them in the drama together is a whole different story, so cute together, yes you read that right, yang mi and huang zitao are cute together lol, who would have thought lol.
    the storyline, for me, is the typical mainland modern drama, can be very boring and full of cliche. but it doesn’t matter cuz i usually fast-foward to yang mi and huang zitao scenes LOL.
