Synopsis: The continuation of this simple story on 5 different women sharing the top floor of an apartment building as they each go through family, financial, relationship, and career related struggles. Some of the questions to be answered in the upcoming season: Who will Andy end up with? Will Fang Shengmei finally be happy? Will Qu Xiaoxiao and Zhao Qiping end up together? Will Qiu Yingying and Yi Qing be in a relationship? One thing is sure: these questions will be answered in season 2!


  • Liu Tao as An Di (31). Independent, meticulous and intelligent, she is a capable career woman. However, her cold temperament prevents her from socializing with others. An Di returns home from New York in order to search for her long-lost younger brother, and unexpectedly gets stuck between the affections of two men; her online friend Wei Wei and long-time boss Tan Zongming.
  • Jiang Xin as Fan Shengmei (30). A HR executive at a foreign company. Experienced, worldly and has a sense of justice, she is known as the Princess of the Streets (Alley Princess). She comes from a poor family and her only wish is to marry a rich man. After she reunites with her university classmate Wang Baichuan, Shengmei gets stuck in a dilemma.
  • Wang Ziwen as Qu Xiaoxiao (24). The daughter of a rich businessman, who moves back home from studying overseas to prevent her half-brother from taking over her father’s company. She is honest, sassy and fierce. When she meets the arrogant Zhao Qiping, sparks start to fly between them.
  • Yang Zi as Qiu Yingying (23). A regular employee who comes from a small city. She is straightforward and simple, shows her love and hate clearly, and often acts on impulse. Befuddled by things in life, she often gets herself in awkward situations.
  • Bridgette Qiao as Guan Ju’er (22). An intern at Forbes 500 Company. Coming from an academic family, she is quiet, introverted and gentle. As she enters the workplace and meets different people, Guan Guan starts to question her identity and aspirations.

  1. The girls seems to have so much fun, it’s nice to see!! And just like you, I can’t wait to watch it!! I really enjoyed the 1st season and OMG Bao Yi Fan looks so fine in the still!! He’s my crush of this show *3*

    1. As much as I like how manly and charismatic Bao Yi Fan is, I’m crossing my fingers that she ends up with Jing Dong’s character in the end….he’s so good to her


      1. I was rooting for him in the beginning too but after all the messed up things happening to andi, I think BYF’s humor and personality can help her open up more. and them dimples! hahaha


  2. I’m looking forward to this, because it’s a reflection of real life and not some storybook fairytale with one dimensional characters like your typical drama. You can find things to like or dislike about each of these girls, but it’s a fun ride to see them develop and grow. It’s more of a lessons on life type drama and makes you realize that everyone has a very biased perception of other people. It’s not common for people of such diverse backgrounds to become friends, and they don’t sugarcoat the friendship at all which makes it even more realistic. Even with the romantic relationships, it shows (hopefully more in season 2) that no matter what you go through to be together, you might not end up with a happily ever after, because no matter how much you love each other, there are still obstacles that love cannot conquer.

    1. Exactly how I feel! That’s why I like this drama so much! Even though these ladies somehow ended up together they did not immediately became friends and even when they did they still judge each other and misunderstand each other. I also like the fact that the first guy they met is not their man of destiny! (like so many dramas out there with their love at first sight theme…)

    1. I don’t think so. I think she will end up with that guitar guy. I remembered at the press con they said something about her having a total makeover and that she will have a rocker kind of style for season 2. (and my guess is that she changed her style because of the guy?)


  3. It looks so much like the first season, but also kind of different? 😛 Really excited to watch it ^^ Haven’t watched anything for such a long time 😦


  4. Lol, I just want tons of Wang Zi Wen / Wang Kai moments. 😛 And I want Andy to end up with Tan Zong Ming, I somehow don’t like the OTT Bao Yi Fan.


  5. Will Zhao Qi Ping and Qu Xiao Xiao end up together in this season 2? Will they have a happy ending? I love them so much. Just watched 4episode of Season 2 but already love them so much ❤


    1. Hm…if I answer u then that would be spoiling…Hahah u will just have to watch till the end to find out. 😝
      But their relationship will have ups and downs and become more emotional than the physical attractions they have right now.
