Tong Wei is a young negotiator with a bold, meticulous style of negotiation. Through a commercial project, she is introduced to Xie Xiaofei. The Xie family is a secretive and wealthy Chinese-American family, and Xie Xiaofei is the only heir. He grew up in the U.S. and is arrogant. Hence, he does not have the support of his father and family. Thus, he frequently negotiates against Tong Wei. With the deepening exchanges, the two gradually grow to appreciate each other at the final negotiation. At this time, his father suffers a betrayal, and Xie Xiaofei begins to experience the harsh realities of life. Tong Wei comes forward. With their negotiating expertise, the Xie family wins an important project. Eventually, the Xie family recover their shares. At this point, Tong Wei discovers that her parents’ death was related to the Xie family. Hence, she and Xie Xiaofei part ways. After years of separation, they meet at the negotiating table. Tong Wei and Xie Xiaofei are determined to be together this time. At the same time, Xie Xiaofei believes in the prosperity of China and shifts the focus of his family business back to China from America.

  1. “. He grew up in the U.S. and is arrogant” this is hilarious, is he arrogant because he grew up in the US or is he just arrogant hahaha anyway, I am really excited because I love both and the story seems fun, but it looks like we might get angsty in the middle. Also @victaorious your dp pic makes me want to rewatch Shan Shan lol ZLY looks so cute

    1. 1. No idea, maybe it’s what the screenwriters like to write about?
      2. The makeup director? I hope he doesn’t look too pale on screen


    1. Chexmix, same here. Its awkward to watch, but I will support the drama as i like YM and HZT. Wish HzT do more modern and ancient dramas.
