EPISODE 5

Fangsi is obviously a perfectionist as she doesn’t want to compromise the quality of her clothes even when faced with the deadline of the release of her line in cooperation with Qiao Ruisi.

But of course, Haoran insists that they need money and that they need to win against Tang Huang’s upcoming clothing line. If Fangsi insists on using so much time to meet her high standards, then their customers would just buy from their competitor instead.

Haoran has actually been repeating the line, “I really admire her” when he thinks of Fangsi. He also told her that he can’t be the only one who appreciates her work so she should be willing to compromise her own standards of quality. Even if he admires her a lot, he can’t just consider her own feelings but consider his as well being a businessman with motives to take over their company.

In Tang and Xiangnan’s storyline, Xiangnan’s doing a photoshoot for Tong Lin’s diamonds as she’s the latest endorser (seen on episode 3).

Her boyfriend fiancee visits her on the set of her photoshoot. They were publicly displaying their affection while staff from Tang Huang were just teasing them. Tang asked Xiangnan why she was the only model in the photoshoot…

She answers it and asks him if he misses Lili or Lucy (we got a playboy male lead right here!) in which he answers…

LIES! HAHAHA

Screenshot 2015-08-23 02.11.52

Amy continues to backstab her boss and she said that she’s only getting all the attention since Fangsi’s busy working in the factory. Her conversation with her coworkers was interrupted when Fangsi called her to tell her that they’d be working overtime. For them, it was already the last straw because they said that they couldn’t take Fangsi anymore.

Screenshot 2015-08-23 02.14.02

In Don Juan, Tang proposes this plan since he believes that the customers would still consume their goods despite the high prices.

Screenshot 2015-08-23 02.14.26

Our male lead is one real businessman!

Screenshot 2015-08-23 02.16.13

Trouble in fashion dramaland as Fangsi visits her studio empty with people and her folders have become empty as well…

Screenshot 2015-08-23 02.16.45

Amy’s obviously the internal thief and she does not feel guilty about it. More interestingly, she’s conniving with someone no other than…

Screenshot 2015-08-23 02.18.28

This is just getting juicier! Amy replied that she also studied and worked hard to become a designer but how come she’s still Fangsi’s assistant?! She also wants to have the spotlight on the global stage someday and by staying on Fangsi’s side, it would be impossible to happen according to her.

Screenshot 2015-08-23 02.20.00

It is only in dramas that I get to see people being reminded of their own birthdays haha! It’s apparently Xiangnan’s birthday and she invited her mom to eat together.

Screenshot 2015-08-23 02.24.44

Xiangnan’s mom is already excited to meet Tang’s dad and she’s been wondering why they haven’t made the move to meet her yet. The mom is obviously one materialistic queen and her daughter asked her if she has ever considered her own daughter’s feelings. Of course she said that she has always cared about her that’s why she didn’t allow her to be with Haoran.

Screenshot 2015-08-23 02.25.55

Our playboy Tang does not seem to care that it’s his fiancee’s birthday that he went to a jewelry store with some random girl (lol).

Screenshot 2015-08-23 02.30.10

Xiangnan is oblivious to the fact that Tang’s assistant was the one who reminded him that it’s her birthday today and he just let the assistant do all the work of planning her birthday celebration.

Screenshot 2015-08-23 02.30.53

Again, Haoran expresses his feelings of admiration for Fangsi but her flaws just seem to turn him off.

Screenshot 2015-08-23 02.33.16

It was coincidence that Haoran stays in the hotel where Xiangnan’s birthday is being celebrated. He greets her a happy birthday and then we have a catching up with my ex-lover’s current love life kind of conversation.

Screenshot 2015-08-23 02.34.17

She brags about her boyfriend’s princess treatment to her though we’re not sure how much of what she said is actually true.

Screenshot 2015-08-23 02.34.48

A quotable quote from Xiangnan and this is why she said that she and Haoran are long-time friends despite their past.

Screenshot 2015-08-23 02.36.29

Flashback to one of the roots of their breakup: Xiangnan has been training to become a model in which Haoran completely disapproves of.

Screenshot 2015-08-23 02.38.18

Back to our heroine’s story, she acts cool and calm and just continues to work despite the major problem that she’s facing right now.

Screenshot 2015-08-23 02.39.02

Our caring male lead rushed right away to Fancy ever since he learned that Qiao Ruisi’s dissolving their contract with Fancy.

Screenshot 2015-08-23 02.39.27

Fangsi just kept telling Tang to get lost but he told her that he’s actually on her side and that it was foolish of her to sign under Qiao Ruisi.

Screenshot 2015-08-23 02.40.38

Fangsi told Tang to stop butting in her business and he warned her that she will never win with her kind of attitude.

Screenshot 2015-08-23 02.41.10

Dejavu flashback: Tang’s outside Fangsi’s workplace shouting while she’s just ignoring him and continues sewing.

Screenshot 2015-08-23 02.41.23

Fangsi’s dream is obviously the only thing that matters to her…

Screenshot 2015-08-23 02.43.51

as she’s willing to let go of her 4-year relationship with Tang.

Screenshot 2015-08-23 02.45.23

*Xiangnan. Here we see Tang and Xiangnan’s first encounter in a flashback scene. Xiangnan saw that Tang has been walking like a zombie and asked him if he’s sick…

Screenshot 2015-08-23 02.45.34

And I just love his answer here!

Screenshot 2015-08-23 02.45.57

Mom confronts Fangsi about what just happened…

Screenshot 2015-08-23 02.46.54

So now we know one of the reasons why they’re not in good terms though this is not the reason why Fangsi became so upset.

Screenshot 2015-08-23 02.47.26

And now we know why… she said that Tang would shift from business to having love affairs and even broke her trust. This is why she doesn’t want to be with him anymore.

Screenshot 2015-08-23 02.48.26

Mom tells Fangsi to think deeply about her decisions.

This episode was just the beginning or the filler for the upcoming episode which made me so excited when I watched the preview. So here we go!


EPISODE 6

Screenshot 2015-08-23 14.20.53

Flashback: Tang and Fangsi were so in love with each other back then!

Screenshot 2015-08-23 14.23.42Screenshot 2015-08-23 14.26.14Screenshot 2015-08-23 14.24.03

Couple goals: A badge/pin to wear as a symbol (in this case, Fangsi’s dream house) of their love haha!

Screenshot 2015-08-23 14.24.56

End of flashback: Fangsi gives their love another chance. But what happened?

Screenshot 2015-08-23 14.25.35

Back to reality: This gives us a clue that their second chance didn’t turn out good. She said that she will never shed a tear or even wait for anyone again.

Screenshot 2015-08-23 14.26.14

Looks like nothing can make our heroine give up on her dreams!

Screenshot 2015-08-23 14.28.39

She breached the contract and even Haoran couldn’t help her because he already stopped working.

Screenshot 2015-08-23 14.29.47

Qiao Ruisi is still pushing for a collaboration with Tang Huang now that Fancy’s now one of their companies. Tang’s wondering why they want to work with their company and why Fancy is currently in a problematic situation when Haoran promised to help her.

Screenshot 2015-08-23 14.41.19

Fangsi’s plan of action: get her label back!

Screenshot 2015-08-23 14.41.29

She reminisces the beginnings of her studio then Haoran visits her to apologize. She said that she should be the one to apologize because she let him down when he trusted her so much. She said that she won’t be able to come back to her studio for a while since it’s on collateral.

Screenshot 2015-08-23 14.43.23

Fangsi never thought that Tang would go this far to ruin her life by buying her label from Qiao Ruisi.

Screenshot 2015-08-23 14.44.00

Fangsi drops all of her things on Tang’s office floor and she promises to pay him in one month’s time.

Screenshot 2015-08-23 14.44.29

Tang told her that not everyone prioritizes quality the way she does. She told him that he shouldn’t try to be the nice guy in the situation when all he wants is obviously to take revenge on her.

Screenshot 2015-08-23 14.44.48

Only Fangsi doesn’t know that Tang is doing everything to help her but he does not admit it but instead, he let Fangsi think whatever she thinks about his reasons for buying her label.

Screenshot 2015-08-23 14.47.21

Fangsi has nothing else to do but to beg Tang for her label. She told him that she’s willing to do anything for him as long as she gets it back.

Screenshot 2015-08-23 14.48.10Screenshot 2015-08-23 14.50.06

Xiangnan was listening to their conversation this whole time and she was definitely not happy about it… She knows that Tang bought Fangsi’s label in order to get close to her.

Screenshot 2015-08-23 14.48.52

After his emotional encounter with Fangsi, he asked this question to himself.

Screenshot 2015-08-23 14.51.06Screenshot 2015-08-23 14.51.17

Tang’s definitely enjoying this moment of glory! Time for some Operation: Bully Fangsi…

Screenshot 2015-08-23 14.52.06Screenshot 2015-08-23 14.52.15

If Fangsi agrees to their 5-year contract, of course she has to obey all of Tang’s orders. These scenes just made me laugh!

Screenshot 2015-08-23 14.52.18Screenshot 2015-08-23 14.52.45

Tang made the contract especially for Fangsi which is why it’s obviously full of torture. I just love his character here!

Screenshot 2015-08-23 14.53.00

Fangsi threatens to throw him water but of course, Tang has more power over her and threatens her with a worse condition. HAHA!

Screenshot 2015-08-23 14.53.26Screenshot 2015-08-23 14.53.59

Fangsi is willing to work for him for 5 years but with 3 conditions that Tang has to agree with as well. He was able to say what was on Fangsi’s mind without even letting her finish talking.

 

Screenshot 2015-08-23 14.56.03Dream/nightmare scene of Fangsi: being a slave to Tang. This was such a funny scene and I remember watching this for the first time when they released it as a teaser and it already made me LOL.

Screenshot 2015-08-23 14.58.34Screenshot 2015-08-23 14.58.30

We have our male lead using a primary school kid’s tactic of venting out their anger. Take note that he’s a multi-billionaire company’s director and who’s also about to get engaged. Oh Li Tang, you are one eccentric person haha!

Screenshot 2015-08-23 14.59.34

Fangsi and Xiao Nai (her ever-loyal assistant) report to work. She goes to Tang’s office and out of nervousness, Tang spills coffee over his pants which definitely hurt because he was wearing ripped jeans haha!

Screenshot 2015-08-23 14.59.47

He’s definitely excited about this 5-year opportunity of being with Fangsi again…

Screenshot 2015-08-23 15.00.12Screenshot 2015-08-23 15.00.24

He throws his beloved poncho on Fangsi which just made me LOL. I believe that scene deserves a gif haha! She criticizes his taste for clothes because that poncho was just so bad to be honest but I just love that it suits Tang’s character so much.

 


 

My thoughts in a nutshell:

  • I am just LOVING Jerry’s portrayal of Li Tang here, a childish/immature person that you’d hate to meet in real life but still so entertaining to watch.
  • The cinematography of this drama is just beyond excellent. I just love the way they do the transitions whenever they show the flashback scenes.
  •  I also love all the stories so far and I really hope that this drama won’t end up failing in terms of the development of the story.
  • My internship and school will start tomorrow but I promise to continue writing as long as I know that people are still reading my recaps despite the delays in writing it. Thank you so much for reading and commenting 😀 I’ll be so busy which brings me to end this post with this perfect screencap of what I’m feeling right now…

    Hi Dramarian, this part that I dont understand or rather the reason was lost on me. Amy deleted all the files and sketches of FSs project she was doing for Qui Rusi.

    1.Why did HR agreed to this plot? What was the reason that he told his assistant Benjamin that he wanted to teach FS a lesson.

    2.What was the reason he quit the company and rejoin it agian as the Director?
    Cos these are part of his plan but I dont understand how they are tied to a bigger picture where HR plotted to the point that he can foresee LT will sign with Tang Huang?

    Further when FS went to approach him for help Benjamin replied that he has resigned.

    How does all this tied in that FS went over to work fo Tang Huang?

      Don’t worry, I actually don’t get the whole picture as well but I’ll give it a try 😀 HR believed in FS so much but he ended up being disappointed because she failed to deliver while all he wanted was to get profit and beat their competitor. Though I still don’t get his point because it was really such a cruel move.
      About him quitting the company, I believe he did that to clear his name or for the issue with FS to die down. At least that’s what I got when he was talking to his assistant.Again, I also don’t understand how this move made him become the company’s director. I remember seeing HR’s kind of surprised face though when he learned that FS is already working for LT. Thank you so much for all your mind-boggling questions! I’m very sorry that I couldn’t answer them well 😀 hopefully I can answer them again clearly next time since I actually want to rewatch the drama after I finish watching everything haha!

    Do you remember that LT dropped his phone whilst walking past the restaurant where XN worked? The scene showed XN picked up his phone but it was left hanging as to whether she returned it to him…..

    My guess is she kept it for a day or two cos after FSs mother had a talk with FS she sent him a text message and XN must have erased it She then insinuated herself into LTs life and went after him like a leech that she is.

    Hence, LT was pretty hurt over FSs heartlessness and harboured it till today and poor FS thot that LT didnt want to meet up to reconcile. This might be the biggest reason for their breakup being sabotaged by XN without both of them knowing.

    Lets see if y guess is right when they revealed it…..

      omg such a smart guess! I actually almost forgot that it happened 😮 I’m sure that it might be the biggest reason as well! Thank you for always sharing your insights in my posts! They make me so happy 😀
