Just when she thought she has landed her big scoop, she finds out that photos of her and Jin Cheng Jia Hui have made headlines. Her life is suddenly in chaos when diehard Jin Cheng Jia Hui fans start sending her death threats.

In order to clear the scandal, Jin Cheng Jia Hui reveals that Zhai Yi Tao is his personal assistant. She is thrilled to be the popular actor's first female assistant and to have the chance to observe celebrities up close and personal but it may be more than what she bargained for.

The storyline is interesting and while it's a little overused, I always buy into dramas like this.  It's something similar to a lot of Taiwanese dramas like Rainie Yang's Love You 醉後決定愛上你 and a common trope for romantic comedies where they are a victim of unfortunate circumstances and their solution gets them into deeper trouble. 

Usually, this ends with both leads falling in love with each other and of course, eventually, things work out. I like happy endings and I like the funny and unexpected way these romances are often setup. I am not sure if this is going to end up a romantic comedy but I am hoping it will. Though with Lareina Song being a former child actress, she does look very young for her age even though she's 20 now.
