Our Glamorous Time


Links are NOT allowed. Format your description nicely so people can easily read them. Please use proper spacing and paragraphs.

Lin Qian once thought the man she wanted would be handsome and formidable, able to “create clouds with one turn of the hand and rain with another turn” in the business world, causing her to look up to him in admiration. There would be nothing he could not accomplish.

But when she finally met the one that fit this, she realized how much she liked his impassiveness, his quietness, his persistence, and his loyalty. She liked him to the point that she was willing to be with him, to stand side by side with him in this callous business world that is full of bloodshed. To be reckless in these years of our life, irrespective of the future.


An encounter, ordinary and dull like flowing water, produced the most dramatic and best years for him and her.

Ive watched Ding Mo's Love Me if You Dare and I've contemplated whether to read the novel or not, because I'm more on the fluffy side and not the serious type. Ive also watched Our Glamorous Time drama, but there's a lot of altering did in the drama. But I've gotta say, the novel is very good and I regret not reading it sooner!

The scenes will nake your heart beat fast, for many reasons- the fluff, papapa, business dealings and nervousness whether things will go on our CP's way, which... more>> of course it did. Would be good if it didn't though, so we can see a beaten MC and ML.

The romance is pretty good. I won't say more but it will definitely make you squeal!

MC's relationship with her brother is also <33 and it also makes me wonder what happened to her brother but ive yet to read his novel because it's not yet complete.

Anyway, this is a 5/5 novel for me! <<less

Reviewed at 16, Rated 4.

Ding Mo specialized at creating romance drama with background full of intrigue, and it prominently displayed on Our Glamorous Time. But don’t be mistaken; the intrigues were not as cliche as love triangle or square, because the intrigue this time was intrigue on business world. Fighting to boost market share, competing to win tender, industrial espionage, etc. Both the MC and her love interest was smart and driven; a perfect candidate for a power couple.

If you like “When Snail Loves” (another work by Ding Mo, but... more>> in a different setting with police detectives as protagonist), or Hong Kong business drama (like "At The Treshold of An Era"), then you’ll probably like this.

The beginning of the story was a bit slow though, as suggested by the description above (“an encounter, ordinary and dull like a flowing water” indeed). Even till the latest translated chapter, the romance between the main OTP was still stalled. However, an interesting turn of event was just happened, and I’ve got high hope regarding the next chapters. I’ll definitely be back to re-review.

PS: the MC’s love interest was HOT <<less

I think it might just be be, but I didn't really feel the chemistry or the depth if feelings between the MC and ML. Also I just feel like MC is a bit to passive in everything. Romance, ML wears the pants. At work, ML wears the pants. In basically all aspects of MCs life he wears the pants. Which when I was reading, really rubbed me the wrong way. I just felt like MC was completely dependent on ML for character development. ML himself admits that he liked it... more>> when he was the centre of her universe. I just don't like it when one person in the relationship is that dependent on the other, it makes for an unbalanced relationship and doesn't sit well with me. <<less

Another amazing work done by the author. Commerce war, romance development and character developments are on point. I admire the MC's personality of not letting herself be pampered and fighting back to her setbacks. The pacing of the story is slow throughout the story but it was the perfect pace that fits the progress of the story.

Strongly recommending it! Ding Mo never fails to amaze us!!

P.S. The extra chapters are really funny though. It's fun to see the wives in OGT, WHCCYE and WASL.

A pretty deep and interesting romance with a fairly strong female lead (I explain why I say 'fairly' in the spoiler) and a focus on corporate politics/media/advertisement and fighting for market share. The schemes and details in the business world were semi-believable, with only a bit of hand-wavy magic, so the author definitely did some research.

... more>>

If you love business world/econ/rags-to-riches, and don't mind BL, there's a much better story that I recommend: [Epiphanies of Rebirth].


This author is very good at writing a mature toned story where the face-slapping is more subtle and there are more three-dimensional villains and the story and romance overall progresses in a logical manner.

Overall, it's a good read with very few contrived situations. I definitely enjoy the 'teaming up to go against the world' feeling between the MC and ML.


One very subtle issue is still the matter of CN culture/subtext in the story. While the author tries very hard to present a strong female MC, all of her actions are still written as being under the purview of the ML. It's stated several times that her choice to break away to stand on her own was 'allowed' or humored by the ML due to his love for her. The MC's brother is the same. In the end, the author writes that the MC feels more comfortable supporting the efforts of the ML instead of being at her own company. Of course, there's nothing 'weak' about supporting the person you love. However, this is a consistent theme in most C-novels and this author's stories. The female MC once again is only allowed to be strong enough or independent enough to suit the male characters protecting her. She will never be written to outshine them or take up a bigger share of any life burden because of her gender.

Despite this, it's still one of the better novels out there with a female MC that has more character and is written better than many others. (Kind of a sad state, tbh.)

It was alright. The MC kind of annoyed me for the most part. I don't understand how she can chase after him and leave her number for him and just be so entranced by him, but when he confesses to her she acts like she doesn't like him and rejects him, then a couple days/weeks later she's completely infatuated with him, being extremely clingy getting mad when he's super busy with work and can't fly to come see her and then turns around does the exact same thing. Like make... more>> it make sense to me. She also annoyed me when she got upset when she didn't know his plans but she herself was the one to decline knowing his plans. That part really t'ed me off in the book. Sometimes I liked her, but for most of the book I didn't.😤😒 <<less

I'm so sick with all the misunderstandings and unnecessary dramas with schemes on every fcking stories I've read oh my gosh AND GUESS WHAT this story is so refreshing!!!

Finally a decent romance!

A military background ML who suddenly jump into the business world because of his deceased brother and repair the company that was about to go bankrupt because of it's former CEO. And yeah he basically seems a bit noob at the start and the somehow the MC underestimate him but of course our ML has to be the... more>> perfect husband, he immediately adapt to things perfectly, and handle them in a smart way. Which also once made the MC insecure of her own intelligence lol. But eventually they'd be at the same level and I LOVE THEIR INTERACTION.

Don't forget about the MC's protective brother (he has his own story, titled Dont Turn Away From Summer), a billionaire. The MC wont make calculations with ML regarding company shares and everything bcuz they're in love already but then her brother be like, "It's okay, just leave all of the calculations to me" lol he really love the MC and doesn't want the MC get mistreated.


Ding Mo's story, as always, leave traces at my heart. <<less

Ding Mo, Ding Mo! I love the intricate business war plot, I love the strong, sensible, charming female lead. I can't count the number of times I squealed out loud at various parts in the plot. Chapter 81 made me roll around in bed--for a webnovel, the writing is quite mature and at times, touching. You get the feeling the author has some depth of life experience. It was 'slow, ' but it was the kind where you keep walking on uphill because you know the trip is worth it.

The only part that made me really frustrated was when MC gave ML the controlling share of her company. Like, one step forward for romance, one huge leap backwards for feminism. Oh well.

I just had to write a review for this novel, but a concise one since I'm bad at expressing what I think.

This novel has, by a slight margin, surpassed my favourite romance web novel, Chongfei Manual. If I were to give the latter a 9, then this one would bear a shiny 9.1. I just loved how descriptive the author was when writing both the scenarios and the characters. It feels as if life was breathed into them and I could vividly picture the atmosphere, the interactions between the characters,... more>> as if I was just right beside them, albeit invisible.

Don't get me started on the romance. I could feel the butterflies in my stomach wanting to burst out reading all the instances of romance in this novel. Everytime I read their intimate acts together, I can't help but wish to just rush out my doors to find my own to dote and pamper just as the male lead does to the female protagonist. I went too deep into the novel that I can't help but to look for someone who's just as independent and valiant, yet kind, reserved and as lovable as the female protagonist in the crowd whenever I venture out.

Indeed, absence makes the heart grow fonder. Finishing this work of art has made me realize how happy and whole someone can be just by falling in love with 'the one'. I did not expect to write this many words, but they all come from deep within the recesses of my heart, just gushing forth just like my love towards this novel! (Sounds too dramatic for you?)

Ending this on a high note, it is worth all the stars I've given, but for every moment that I go back to reminscing about this novel, I feel like adding a new star for each one. 10/5, simply amazing writing and topnotch translation. <<less

I think it was pretty good up until the ending. Like how cheesy did it need to get. It was so tedious to finish because I couldn't stop eye rolling. But I did it and well it was cute.... just super cheesy at the end.

I like this one too, though Id have to say, Im more on the alley of When He Comes, Close Your Eyes and When a Snail Loves. I guess its got something to do with the novel being more on the side of business tactics and such while the other two is on league with crime suspense type of novel.

I like how shes adept to showing her skills and talents. Her relationship with her brother. Their romance is sweet and the snusnu is, well, hot. 😂😂😂. The reaction feelings here... more>> are more showy,


especially how she reacts with every move he makes, like, when she first figure out his counter attack only when its about to end so she's shock and scared that she knows nothing about him in reality, which makes her taken aback about starting their relationship. Then there's that conversation when she thought his plan is to abandoned theor brand (?), she questions him if someday he will abandoned her too, which gaves the novel a touch that her feeling is raw and real.
