Negotiator (2018) Chinese Drama Review & Recap
I have just started watching this drama starring the glorious Yang Mi.
Genre: Business, Romance
The story is about business, acquisitions, corporation, amalgamation and conglomorate, where Tong Mei (Yang Mi) is on top of her job as a negotiator.
In her role as a negotiator she met Xie Xiafei who is an heir of a Chinese American Corporation with 600 years history.
Though their relationship started with suspicion and animosity on both sides, there was chemistry between them that turned into mutual attraction until Tong Mei found out that Xiafei’s company had something to do with the death of her parents.
Fast forward several years later, they met again as negotiators of rival firms.

Tong Mei was in America, who was asked by her lawyer friend to help in negotiation at the last moment. Of course Tong Mei came through.
Qin Tianyu was shown as rather spoilt and self-destructive man. During a monthly family get together, he was particularly harsh with his father and uncle.
Then the episode ended in a private hospital with Qin Tianyu crying over his comatose mother. You get then the reason why he was rather disrespectful to his father, who seemed to have acquired a new wife.
In the same hospital, he met Tong Mei, who was chasing after her recalcitrant younger sister.
