Popular TV drama explores modern women’s issues

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."
