She meets her demanding and cold boss, Gong Ming, whose melancholic persona is described by Lin Xiao as “a distant, lonely planet in the universe”. Her work puts her relationship with her high school sweet heart, Jian Xi in peril.

Meanwhile, Gu Li faces struggle in her relationship with Gu Yuan at the intervention of his mother, who seeks to marry him off to an even wealthier family. Nan Xiang paints to support her fashion design studies, while at the same time struggle with her on-and-off relationship with abusive boyfriend Xi Cheng.
