Sohu’s exaggerated but so-cute-you-want-to-squeal rom-coms are my guilty pleasure dramas. The latest hit, Well-intended Love 奈何boss要娶我, continues that trend. The series that reportedly is still waiting on payment for many of its staff got popular enough that its host Sohu has changed it from streaming two episodes a week to three and then four episodes per weeks after fans threw a riot.
When struggling actress Xia Lin (Wang Shuang) needs a bone marrow transplant to survive, she strikes a deal with the donor to marry him in a contract marriage in exchange for the donation. As it turns out, she hit the jackpot with Ling Yizhou (Xu Kaicheng), a wealthy, attractive businessman who is also actually really considerate and sweet. The love quad is joined by fellow actor (Yi Bochen). The male lead’s otc assistant (Huang Qianshuo) and the female lead’s over-imaginative best friend (Liu Jiaxi) also make a super cute side couple.
It’s area-blocked on both Sohu and MGTV, but English-subbed on Youtube here.
