Lu Yin is a young no-nonsense high level exec who assumes his younger brother's identity as a simple-minded PE student while Lu Xiang takes up his older brother's mantle in the corporate world and crosses paths with a career woman named Tang Shi.
The plot sounds like a cross between a sports and a workplace drama that it seems that both will follows an emotional trajectory about finding success. That aside, can we please take a moment to appreciate Mao Xiao Tong and Alan Yu finally landing their leading roles?

If that sounds like a lot, then Mao Xiao Tong has an even more expansive resume with roles in Legend of Zhen Huan, Romance of the Condor Heroes, etc. Last year saw her rise to fame as the ditsy yet lovable sidekick in Just One Smile is Very Alluring and again as a woman consumed by love in Princess Weiyoung. She played the second lead in both roles as someone with looks as plain as day but not this time.
