Synopsis and Plot Summary

An inspirational story that follows a female general manager and a corporate newbie as they navigate through corporate life during a global financial crisis.

Li Xiang (Zhang Han) is an idealist who dreams of becoming a corporate big shot that's earning the big bucks and married to a beautiful woman. He starts working right after graduating from college and finds a job at Live & Life advertising firm as the assistant of Zhang Wei (Choo Ja Hyun).

As the general manager, Zhang Wei is a woman who is successful in life but not so much when it comes to love. Works throws a curveball when she faces difficulties executing her new marketing plan and has to deal with an impending layoff. Li Xiang is quite blessed as he always seems to find his way out of trouble and even manages to save the day. He also meets newcomer Qi Qi (Vianna Wu) and they fall into a romance. As the story progresses, Li Xiang looks toward his lady boss who used to be like a demon in office clothes and how she has evolved and wonders about the choices he should make as he looks to the future.
