At the same time, Xu Xin Yi, another female lead, gets to know a professional gamer. They become a couple, but a tragedy turns everything upside down. A lawyer Zhao Cheng Zhi falls in love with a bright and bubbly intern who brings joy into his dull life.
Ten Years Late shows an amazing relationship between three couples. However, you should not expect something completely new in this drama. It’s quite cliché with its typical leads who know each other from school but suddenly separate their paths. So, here you see an everyday Chinese drama with an interesting take on it.

Hence, they start believing that Jinang Chu Chu is the CEO’s girlfriend!
Cheat My Boss is not your typical Chinese romance drama. Not only is it shot interestingly, the flow of the story and the characters are also like nothing you’ve seen before.

The story of Shall We Fall In Love is so hilarious at times that you do not know whether you want to laugh or cry!

It turns out that she is somehow related to his past. Hence, he is getting closer to her to find out more. However, he actually is falling in love in the process.
Focusing on drone business, Only Side by Side With You is quite refreshing. Sounds like something new and compelling, isn’t it? Don’t think the drama is complex to grasp because of it. On the contrary, it’s not boring, as there are no long talks on power politics stuff and so on. Also, be prepared to see many flashbacks from the past (but this moment may seem irritating at times).
