Life Plan A and B (Chinese: 荼蘼; pinyin: Tú mí) is a 2016 Taiwanese melodrama created and produced by TTV. It stars Rainie Yang, Yan Yulin and Johnny Lu. It is the second instalment in Q Series. First original broadcast began on October 7, 2016 on TTV airing every Friday night from 10:00-11:50 pm.[1][2]


Ru Wei and You Yan have a simple relationship. But in every simple relationship there are many difficulties. They are not rich, but they try very hard to enjoy life; even if it means for their three meals a day they only eat instant noodles, they can still make hundreds of flavours. They are very serious about their relationship and trying their best to achieve something in life – hoping one day they can become who they want to become. One day, Ru Wei has a 'lucky chance' in life. Her company wants to send her to Shanghai, with a promotion and higher pay. These two who are deeply in love cannot bear to have a long distance relationship. With all the uncertainties in their future, can they still stand by each other? If your life "schedule" suddenly changes and forces you to choose between love and career, how can you choose one? Will you also be swaying between the two, unable to decide what to do? If only we can know the outcomes of both options before we choose one, how much better and easier would that be...
