Cute Programmer
Available on Viki
Jiang Yi Cheng (Xing Zhao Lin) is an incredibly talented computer programmer. But despite his talent, he is cold and aloof. This is due to the fact that he once fell in love with a woman who exploited him to get her hands on his codes – and left him licking his emotional wounds. Since then, he has been wary and untrusting. Meanwhile, Lu Li (Zhu Xu Dan) is an intelligent female would-be programmer who admires and even adores Jiang Yi Cheng. She wants to follow in his footsteps, so studies hard and is granted admission to the same computer programming course he took at college. When she graduates, she hopes to apply for a role at his company – but is shocked to discover that the firm will not hire female programmers. Undeterred, she decides to dress up as a man and pretend she is male. This works, but keeping up the pretense turns out to be tough. But when she gets the opportunity, she manages to broker an agreement with Jiang Yi Cheng that will help him solve a problem of his own. They will become a “contract couple” and cohabit for a year. But will this unorthodox arrangement open the door for Cupid? “Cute Programmer” is a 2021 Chinese drama series that was directed by Wu Qiang.
