Although it feels like it’s been a while since I’ve seen one, there was a time when hotel dramas were all the rage. Love is Fate 我爱你，这是最好的安排 falls right into the category with a hotel heiress at the helm. While he’d surely fit the bill as the dashing hotelier especially when all suited up, Vin Zhang actually plays hotel employee Xia Yuxing opposite Zheng He Hui Zi who plays Ma Keai, the lady who happens to inherit a hotel after three founders find themselves dead, dying or without an heir.
Living abroad, Ma Keai receives word that she was to inherit the hotel but soon after gets into a car accident. She figures that her “accident” was not really an accident so she accepts the challenge of managing the hotel in hopes of investigating the truth. What dark secrets will she be able to uncover?
This is a promising show which I will definitely be watching. It’s a welcome break from the usual trope of dramas where the men are usually the rich and powerful roles while the women are usually left to play the timid and clumsy characters. It also stars Kee Kong Shuhang, Gao Yang, Gina Zhang Yingying and John Wu Junchao.
