Drama Preview: 4 Gifts (Updated Part 2)
Just as I promised, here’s a detailed character description for Queen not Getting off Work, I mean 4 Gifts. Again, these are rough translations from Baidu. Yeah, I filed this under the preview category but I won’t be linking videos in this post. Just refer to the previous 2 4 Gifts Drama Previews for vids. 🙂 If you think, I made some mistakes in the description, please inform me.
Ren Shao Ting (Nicholas Teo) – The Famous Fashion Designer.
His cold semblance masks a hardcore perfectionist. He may look carefree and laid-back, but he sure has an impossibly meticulous taste. He lives by his standard: “Do not fight if you have no chance of winning!” He is a well-known fashion designer in the industry. His puffed up self-confidence is a product of his undeniable ingenuity and creativity. These qualities, thereby, gets the attention of an equally arrogant fashion editor, Ruo Wei. And the two overconfident fashion icons continuously collide, producing a rather brilliant spark!l
Tong Jia Liang (Xiu Jie Kai)- The Police Officer.
Calm, easygoing, uninhibited. He has a strong sense of justice, faces each matter seriously and exudes a lot of “charm”. Haha!
When he was young, Jia Liang loved a girl named Irene. When Ren Shao transferred to his school, they became instant friends. And from then on, Jia Liang, Ren Shao and Irene (and some other buddies) were always together. Conflict and misunderstanding arises between Ren Shao and Jia Liang when Irene accidentally died.
After his father passed away, Jia Liang fulfilled his father’s dying wish and became a just and principled Police Officer. However, he’s seemingly ordinary life turned upside-down when he met a courageous public prosecutor (Ruo Tian). The two kept on bickering one day after another, totally unaware of a love that starts to bud.
Zhang Ruo Wei (Wang Xin-Ru)- The Fashion Queen.
A self-confident, optimistic, modern woman. She believes that beauty is also a weapon to succeed. Fashion, for her, comes as natural as drinking water. She knows how to appreciate beauty, which she may have inherited from her mother. Just as her motto implies: “There’s nothing I couldn’t do, unless, it’s something I don’t want to do!”, she is indeed undefeated and successful in everything. Until, she met Ren Shao.
When her “reputation” was challenged by the stubborn fashion designer, she immediately did everything to win the game. And to everyone’s surprise, the two unlikely couple fell in love. However, their love story may not be a smooth ride. As it happens, Ruo Wei’s younger sister, Ruo Yin, also liked Ren Shao. Caught in the middle, Ruo Wei must choose: must she fight for her love or just give up?
Zhang RuoTian (LiKangyi) – The Justice Queen.
A brilliant, strong, and independent Prosecutor. She can’t stand injustice, and thereby, puts her heart and soul in her work. She already had the perfect life plan: pass the public prosecutor’s exam with flying colors, become an outstanding prosecutor, get married with her long-time boyfriend, then years later, have several children. But somehow, her picture-perfect life may not be a happy ending after all. She may be competent at work, but she’s just another desperate lovestruck woman. She clings to an insincere love and “refuses to give up until all hope is gone”.
Due to a case, she met Jia Liang, and her squabble-filled days with him begun. Days passed, and the bickering couple find themselves enjoying the sugar-coated wrangling routine.
Zhang Ruo Yin( Lu Jiaxin)- The Average Queen
Unlike her other sisters, Ruo Yin considers herself, rather ordinary. She doesn’t have big dreams or high hopes. She just wants to stay at home, do house chores and take care of her father. She has a good friend named Josh, who untiringly listens to her problems and complaints, not knowing that Josh had always loved her “ordinariness”. She likes Ren Shao. And together with Ruo Wei, she completes the complicated love triangle.
Zhang Ruo Yu (Suki Low )- The Imagination Queen
Kind, straightforward, eccentric. Since young, Ruo Yu always had a limitless, over-the-top viewpoint in life.
