Love Is Sweet 半是蜜糖半是伤 is based on Qizi He Songzi’s novel of the same name, and focuses on the growth arc of a budding investment banker who is secretly shielded from harm by her knight in shining armour.

Jiang Jun (Bai Lu) is the carefree and somewhat idealistic heroine who is allergic to tears. After her father’s untimely death, she decides to respect his dying wishes and becomes an investment banker. While there, she reunites with Yuan Shuai (Luo Yunxi), who was responsible for stopping her from crying (literally) as a child.

Surprisingly, the adult Yuan Shuai is nothing like how she remembered and never has a good word to say about her. However, Jiang Jun isn’t one to give up in the face of adversity, and eventually succeeds in creating a name for herself in the cut-throat world of investment banking. Costars include Gao Hanyu (The King’s Avatar), Riley Wang Yilun (Nine Kilometres of Love) and Zhao Yuanyuan (Royal Nirvana).

The 36~40 episode web drama is directed by Yu Zhongzhong (Once Upon A Time in Lingjian Mountain, No Secrets) and written by Wang Wentong (Painting Heart Expert).

  1. Bai Lu in the photo above looks different….Dont not matter, I adore all her dramas. So I am looking forward to it.

    1. Bai Lu can look different in each drama she has played tbh.
      She dressed feminine and elegant on that event so you probably think she looks different.
      But she was so gorgeous on that day- one of my fav look of her

      1. Yep, I didn’t even recognize her at first when I saw her in lighter make-up for The Legends. Same with when first seeing her promos in Lucky’s First Love. She has what I consider a “canvas face”, where the actress can look drastically different depending on the character/make-up.

  2. Odd pairing. Nonetheless, I do like them both especially Bai Lu being one of the few C-actress that I like.
