Synopsis

Sheng Xin Ren (Alice Ko) is 25 years old this year, and is a low-level staff in the sales department of Jing Shi Department Store, and has worked there nearly for 4 years.

Qin Zi Qi (Roy Chiu), 28, is son of a wealthy family who just graduated from MBA in USA and returns to Taiwan. His father Qin Mu Bai (Shen Meng Sheng/沈孟生) is the chairman of Jing Shi Department Store.

Zi Qi initially thought after his studies, his father will give him the rights to operate the Jing Shi Department Store. However, his father tells him that if he wants to take over the company, he must passes the test to work as low level staff in the sales department for 1 year, and obey the 5 rules, if he breaches any of the rules, he better be prepared to find another job.

As a result, Zi Qi comes to Jing Shi Department Store as an assistant in the sales department. In these 365 days, he not just only receive a low salary, but he will have to also accept the deployment of other staffs. He can no longer mixes around with friends, cannot drive his car, cannot shop for branded items and cannot afford to dine in a fine restaurant he also has to endure the crowded public transport everyday. His colleagues regard him as an odd job labor and often look down on him but they do not know his real identity.

At first, Zi Qi disagrees with Xin Ren who is responsible to bring him on the job, and despises her “Office Survival Guide” theory, but the “Grassroots Life Saving Theory” has managed to save him for a few times. Finally, Zi Qi got used to a normal live and after solving several major things in cooperation with Xin Ren, he also began to enjoy working in the sales department.

In order to arouse his own son's morale who is smart but not intelligent, Mu Bai hires the person-in-charge of a well-known boutique agency Yu Cheng Feng (James Wen) as the general manager, and wants his son to battle with him. Cheng Feng's handsome looks and his serious and responsible leadership style, made him popular not long after he joined Jing Shi Department Store, becoming the ideal prince charming in the minds of the female employees. Will Qi Zi who is jealous works harder due to the external stimulus effort?

After long time together, Qi Zi finds that he is falling in love with Xin Ren. As he realizes, Cheng Feng who he has always seen as a competitor has also began to pursue Xin Ren.
