Her best boyfriend has died and her life has gone into a tailspin, and even her job has begun to suffer.

He moved to Yun Miao village, near Dali, in Yunnan Province just to seek some peace and quiet.
But he soon discovers that life in the farming village is not as idyllic as he had imagined. There he had to wade through fields filled with dirt and mud which was not his habit.

But when they start working together, Cupid seems determined to bring them together! Can they find love in this quiet little village?
Meet Yourself Chinese Drama Review
Meet Yourself is a drama that will make you laugh and cry at the same time. It will teach you about life, hope and happiness.
You will learn important life lessons along the way and develop yourself and make you a better person.
The main strength of this drama is that the characters are very realistic and they are examples of real people like you.
So when you watch this, you will get life lessons like the characters. You will know the important things in your life.
Drama explores this in many ways such as family ties, friendship, grandparent relationships, mother-daughter relationships, sibling relationships, neighbor relationships and so on.
The uniqueness of this drama is, even exploring so many life events, even teaching us so many values of life, it’s really fun to watch.
Some simple moments can also make you laugh out loud, and some simple moments make you so emotional that it will make you cry, but at the same time, you will feel happy and happy.
The plot is quite simple and easy to follow. You’ve read the synopsis summary so, I’m not going to put the same words into words.
In my opinion, the plot is rather simple. But the story is not simple. This is a big story that spreads. There are many stories that mix together and become a beautiful and magical mix. So many characters in the drama.
But sometimes, they tell us different stories, and different values and give us different emotions, insights and life lessons. Sometimes, those conversations make you cry with emotion, sometimes they make you cry with joy.
As for the characters, there are a lot of them and the characters are very well developed. You have a main female character who is a former front office Hotel Manager who comes to the village to kill time. He made plans with his best friend to come here and kill some time.
While the main male character is a local boy who is highly educated and usually does well-paid jobs. He is now back in the village and now wants to improve the village.
All of these characters are fun to watch and the cast does their job very well. There are no issues when it comes to acting and character development.
Here I also thank the playwrights who created such wonderful masterpieces.
Some of the weaknesses of this drama are its simple and predictable plot: Yes, the plot is quite simple and predictable. You can always guess what might happen next. You get what you expect, and the drama doesn’t let you down in that regard.
It also lacks many WOW moments: This drama is different in many aspects compared to other dramas. It’s so simple that they all taste the same.
