Love Is Not Blind (Chinese: 失恋33天[3]) is a 2011 Chinese romantic comedy film directed by Teng Huatao.[4] The film was adapted from an online novel[5] written by Bao Jingjing which has been popular among cyber users since its appearance. Due to the popularity of the source,[6] Teng adapted the novel into a movie,[7] which was said to be prepared specially for Nov.11—the Singles' Day in China.[8] The film became a major commercial success in China, considering its low budget. Now Teng is considering adapting the novel into a TV play.[9]

Huang Xiaoxian, a 27-year-old woman who lives in Beijing, breaks up with her boyfriend of 7 years after witnessing him on a date with her best friend in a shopping mall. Heart-broken and depressed, XiaoXian mopes around at work and nearly gets fired for screwing up a big assignment. With the surprising help from a colleague she usually loathes, Xiaoxian gradually heals, starts to see more truly of herself, and finds love from someone who has always been there for her.
