It’s time for female-led dramas to flex its muscles because if there’s one genre that’s slowly but surely gaining a foothold in the industry, it’s this. If you’re game to see a strong kick arse woman determined to make her own mark in the world, then this drama’s for you! Starring Qin Lan, Godfrey Gao, Wang Ziyi, David Wang Yaoqing, Kara Hui, Guo Xiaoting and Zhang Yanyan, the 36 episode long We are All Alone 怪你过分美丽 is a story about one woman’s struggle and the challenges modern professional women have to face in the workplace.
At the prestigious Golden Tripod awarding ceremony, two artists managed by the entertainment industry’s “Iron-Blooded agent “ Mo Xiangwan (Qin Lan) were amongst the nominees slated to bring home an award. But all that glitters is not gold as tensions bubbling underneath caused her artists to part ways with her because of an imprudent decision.
Mo Xiangwan soon realizes the lack of ingenuity and passion missing from her former upcoming charges, and comes to appreciate these traits embodied by industry veterans. This makes her even more determined to change her career and focus on creating outstanding commissions instead. Meanwhile, Mo Bei (Godfrey Gao) is an ace lawyer specializing in commercial law. Xiangwan and Mo Bei’s paths cross as they each strive to be the best in their chosen professions.
Sadly, this also marks Godfrey’s final oeuvre. We Are All Alone was the last drama he finished filming in August just months before his sudden passing on 27 November 2019. For Godfrey fans at least, his farewell performance is bound to be bittersweet.
