Drama Review: Why women love ( Wang Zi Yi, Gina Jin)

Writing reviews started as a hobby but now it feels like a must do. I once asked one of my followers to recommend me a modern Chinese drama that has a good storyline and he recommended Why women love. The drama got popular after it’s release but I don’t watch a drama because of it’s popularity so today I’m writing a review on Why women love to decide whether the drama deserves the hype or not.

First Impressions.

First time watching the drama, the opening song was good even though the ending song was a bit off. Besides it being recommend, the title itself made me curious. I happen to find out that it’s a “overbearing boss lady and a mischievous young man relationship” even though the Female lead is working in the company of the Male lead but you can see that this isn’t the usual storyline in modern dramas. I never came across the main leads but I have a feeling that this story will turn me into a fan.


Zhao Jiang Yue is the somewhat tyrannical head of a tech firm. She is known for her no-nonsense approach to business – and her employees. The firm releases a dating app that promises to match users with a partner in the space of just three months. She is also somewhat clueless in affairs of the heart herself. But things start to get uncomfortable at work when the family who own the company make arrangements for Gu Jia Xin, the heir to the business group that owns the company, to join as Zhao Jiang Yue’s temporary assistant.

Gu Jia Xin’s mother wants him to take charge of the business, but he has other ideas. He is a successful pro racing driver and is wildly popular with his female fans, and would rather compete on the motorcycle track than spend time in the boardroom. At first, the duo gets off on the wrong foot: Zhao Jiang Yue tries to intimidate him, and Gu Jia Xin’s bumbling causes problems. But when she enlists Gu Jia Xin’s help to try to capture Xu Ning Yuan’s heart, he suddenly starts to realize that he is developing feelings for her, and that the feeling just might be mutual

The Good.

It’s always the same thing with modern dramas, trying to write a different review on a modern drama is like trying to look to the left while looking to the right.

1. Music.

I can start this by saying the sound (music) selection is not bad. Some songs were more entertaining than other scenes.

2. Perfect Main leads.

I’m so glad that they didn’t make Jiaxin’s childhood friend as his partner, her character is what we usually get from female leads in most modern dramas but this time they gave us a mature female lead. I’m not against the whole “childish” and “innocent” character but they shouldn’t forced those characters on our throats. I found the female lead’s character suitable for the “childish” male lead character, you can say it’s a swap of personalities on this drama, if you get what I’m saying.

3. Chemistry.

I must admit, having multiple couples in a drama isn’t always a good move. On this drama there’s like four couples but I only felt the chemistry between Jiangyue and Jiaxin. Other couples were awesome but they could’ve been better if they had more segments.

The Bad.

1. Is it a crime to make the drama 100% realistic?

Modern dramas aren’t realistic and that’s no secret but there are times where they take us as fools and cross the line in the name of ‘entertainment’. Let’s be realistic here, how could a guy who just got into an accident 24 hours ago jump over a fence? what’s worse is the fact that he was using crutches to walk but he jumped over the fence! From using crutches to being a superman in just a minute? He left the hospital (wearing hospital gown) unnoticed, I let that slide since they all use the trick but the fence scene was a TOTAL NO NO!!!

2. Dragging.

One thing that’s a total ‘no no’ for me in Chinese dramas is dragging since I’m wasting my time on useless scenes. I’m already used to dragging in modern drama especially when it comes to dramas that focuses more on romance but I the last two episodes were a total waste of time. They could’ve summarized everything in episode 22 rather than adding useless segments that we already witnessed in the beginning of the drama, Jianxin was pursuing Jiangyue in the beginning but was it necessary for him to chase after her again in the last two episodes?


This drama’s theme maybe different from most modern Chinese dramas I watched but it’s content is just like other modern dramas. I liked the idea of a bossy general manager being taught how to love and ends up finding love.
