In the drama, the mistress Ling Ling, played by Wu Yue, has given another definition of "home wrecker" for viewers.
The first time I saw her, I did not think she would be a threat to my family as she is so common in daily life, Luo said during a monologue in the drama.
Indeed, Ling Ling does not seem like a typical mistress. She is not young, beautiful or rich.
To support her son and herself, she has to budget carefully and seems to be the last person to be "the other woman".
Her poor family background and seemingly kind personality makes men easily feel a tender pity for her, said Huang Lan, producer of the drama.
In such a fast-paced society, men are faced with huge pressures every day. The truth is that many cheating men are not obsessed with young pretty ladies, rather a female who knows what he wants, Huang said.
Therefore, the mistress image I have shaped is easy to sympathize with for some targeted groups.
It is worthwhile to note that the mistress played by Wu Yue is deeply rooted in some viewers' hearts," said him.
Some crazy viewers have posted on her official weibo platform and questioned her reason for stepping into another person's family, proving her amazing acting skills.
TV plot integrates with lead actress's real life
Some plot lines in the drama may have aroused controversy among viewers, but most people speak highly of cast members' professional performance, and Ma Yili is no exception.
Ma's acting in the drama, to some degree, causes most viewers to link the TV plot with her "marriage crisis" in 2014.
Her husband Wen Zhang, a major film and TV star in China, was captured by the paparazzi dating another woman.
Instead of dealing with the problem behind closed doors, Wen took advantage of Sina Weibo, the Chinese version of Twitter, to apologize to Ma in public.
The open nature of his response resonated with online users, provoking a wave of anger on weibo.
But Ma finally chose to forgive Wen and posted: "Being in love is easy, but being married is not. It is to be cherished."
Those words have become buzzwords this year and are regarded as a golden principle in safeguarding marriage.
Admittedly or not, the sensational "public apology" issue has prompted more viewers to tune in to the drama.
No matter in the virtual TV drama or real life, Ma sets an example by showing me the significance of being an independent woman, said online user Zhang Xiaoping on weibo.
The producer also says that the series is a gift for the modern woman.
Woman should not be tied with marriage and men. As an independent group, women should seek their own happiness and life goals.
