Apologies for not being faithful to my recapping schedule. As of writing, “The Perfect Match” is already on its 5th episode on Viki. I must really catch up now!

This drama is becoming more and more delicious!

Let’s try another serving of Episode 3 in this recap, shall we?

17693126_10212233460220712_1919060310_o

We ended the previous episode with Tingen being a jerk and scared the sh*t out of Weiqing. So we started this episode with a long scene of him just comforting her instead of actually turning the lights on already. Geez.

17692930_10212233460500719_1922933631_o

Annoying 2nd female lead is still reminiscing her dinner with Tingen. She called her father just to say that she finished her investigation and that Tingen’s qualified to be her husband. *Rolls eyes*.

I CRINGEEEE. We would all probably get drunk if we take a shot every time this drama cliche happens. I didn’t think that Wu Kang Ren would still want to do such a cliche scene…

But wait, there’s more! And yes, no more sisterly love! Thanks for making us realize that, Viki commenter!

Tingen told Weiqing to leave already but the persistent student didn’t want to.

17759360_10212233461900754_1891752504_o

He clarified it and told her that she should go home and she can have her lessons tomorrow. He even told her to send a text message once she’s home. Awww my heart!

17693061_10212233462540770_349742799_o

Shaowei (I finally remembered his name yay!) just loved looking superior especially when it’s all about his love rival, Tingen.

17692754_10212233462900779_1558287919_o

Weiqing got a call and it was none other than Tingen and he was just beyond neurotic! Aaahh love my OTP!

17692591_10212233463140785_1046524240_o

Weiqing was wondering why Tingen would act so crazy and Shaowei had to tell her what’s going on.

17761651_10212233465620847_168406175_o

Thinking about her and smiling like an idiot before going to sleep? Check. Cupid hit you!

17692950_10212233466900879_80666376_o

While he’s smiling in his sleep, our female lead had a nightmare which explained how she became nyctophobic (I was waiting for this!). When she was young, she was all left at home when she got a phone call that her dad passed away then the lights suddenly flickered off. Thus, the trauma and phobia. Really heartbreaking.

17692891_10212233469220937_1495304727_o

He called Weiqing to help him get some fresh lobsters.

17759247_10212233469980956_1244497542_o

*Insert all the flashback cliche scenes*. Viki commenters were just all like, “can he stop pls” HAHA!

17693007_10212233470940980_708052972_o

He just shoved the lobster into her face since he couldn’t take it anymore… he’s so in love haha!

17522358_10212233471220987_1427277917_o

The man who gave them the lobsters thought that Weiqing was Tingen’s girlfriend. Both of them denied it and even said that they’re not qualified for each other’s types. Tingen scoffed at it and asked if her night market friend would be more qualified.

17759378_10212233471460993_518864474_o

Weiqing got an emergency phone call from her night market gang. Their gas supplier got abducted by a mafia boss. Tingen didn’t want Weiqing to do it alone so he decided to drive her motorbike for her. I just love how this romance is building up!

17759177_10212233471580996_785389609_o17693208_10212233471861003_663921160_o

He may hate the night market scene but he doesn’t hate her girl! 😉 I kind of hated him for being a noble idiot here though. He bet with the mafia boss that he could make 180 knife marks in one minute all over his hand. If Tingen could succeed, mafia boss will have to let the hostage off and if not, he will pay him twice the money that the hostage owed.

17623121_10212233472301014_987527421_o

This was probably the most stressful scene of the episode. As Fenqing said, the hand is the most important thing for a chef! Luckily, it was a success!

17522219_10212233472501019_1304581962_o

Tingen gives her a scolding about recklessly attacking the mafia boss without thinking it over. It may be great to help but Tingen believed that it was the gas supplier’s own problem to solve. He’s got a point!

17692813_10212233472661023_1297291806_o

I just loved this *heart eyes*. She said that she’s always willing to help out and there you go.

17693013_10212233472781026_1373341990_o

Our boys will need to talk!

17761262_10212233473021032_258173038_o17522522_10212233473301039_1060099171_o

Basically, Tingen didn’t care about what Shaowei was talking about. He said that Fenqing will even become better with him by her side instead of her staying in the night market.

17692803_10212233473541045_751888787_o

Sorry to break it to you, but I don’t think she will ever choose you…

17668591_10212233474101059_1990882602_o

Back at the La Mure kitchen, all kitchen staff would have to compete for a “special off” granted by none other than their head chef, Ting En.

17692923_10212233474381066_2098177119_o17759230_10212233474581071_752331075_o

But before they get the most rewarding incentive, they need to recreate the chef’s flambe.

17759212_10212233474901079_1892504793_o

The drama didn’t make the situation predictable right away as Weiqing didn’t win right away… In fact, she madr the worst flambe!

17693213_10212233475061083_1934654890_o

Ting En realized that Weiqing doesn’t know much about wines after tasting her flambe. This then made him hatch an idea! Oooohh exciting!

17761516_10212233475381091_302829552_o

Gina gets interviewed about Huo Ting En for writing so many good things about his restaurant.

17761611_10212233475501094_79353789_o

She gets a bouquet of flowers which was apparently from Tingen…

17759232_10212233475621097_1258122025_o

Nope, it wasn’t from him but his brother was the one who sent the flowers to Gina. Enjoyed this scene because Wu Kang Ren was so great in acting these comedy parts!

17693138_10212233475821102_967783341_o

Whatever, girl… Get out of my OTP’s way!

17692881_10212233476141110_486852726_o

He just wants to kill his brother after finding out that he sent a letter together with the bouquet haha!

17693070_10212233477341140_133055250_o

A-hole Ting En coming… he’s basically pissed at the fact that Weiqing does nothing but read her dad’s journal. What’s your problem, dude?!

17761343_10212233479621197_291295425_o

Weiqing said that she learned everything about cooking all because of her dad’s book.

17758984_10212233482581271_162913317_o

After getting into a fight with Weiqing, it was then explained to Tingen that Weiqing wasn’t referring to her dad’s journal. She was actually trying out all the available wines in the kitchen to help her recreate the flambe. Yup, you totally misunderstood her!

17761640_10212233482861278_832242551_o

He chased after Weiqing and tried to stop her. Lo and behold! He got his pants ripped off instead haha!

17693182_10212233483021282_2130188797_o

Weiqing asked him if he was apologizing for what he just did… but the man’s pride lol annoying!

17761677_10212233483141285_288273094_o

Then he eventually apologized to her! Loved this scene 😀

17758951_10212233483821302_474721837_o

She’s just so stubborn! Head chef told you stay in the kitchen to work but of course, she’s our heroine and she must always act righteous even if she didn’t have anything to do with those eggs…

17668660_10212233485461343_1399527432_o

He got ’em special eggs all thanks to Gina!

17761251_10212233485821352_1762862296_o

He crashed into a boulder and let’s just all be honest that we were all concerned about the eggs that he struggled to get. He’s now stuck in the middle of nowhere but not until he bumps into…

17693089_10212233486061358_1817202620_o

Weiqing… who’s supposed to stay in the kitchen haha!

17742270_10212233486141360_604201100_n

He volunteered his back to carry Weiqing… Yes, this was sweet but c’mon! You’re carrying a box full of those precious eggs *facepalms*

And we go to episode 4!


THOUGHTS:

  • The drama is so done with the Weiqing – Ting En’s sister connection (well, at least for this episode) which made me very happy!
  • Ivy Shao and Wu Kang Ren are just becoming more and more OTP-worthy! It’s such a pleasure to watch them work together.
  • Weiqing is the female lead that one could ever hope for. She is strong, determined, and hardworking. Tingen has been stepping on her but she never let that bother her.
  • The second leads are still annoying as ever but I guess I could tolerate them for the next episodes knowing that their presence will only make our OTP’s relationship better 😉
  • Speaking of next episode, I can’t wait to watch the next one!

So, what did you think of episode 3? Lots of cliches definitely but it should get better!

    Lol at the Viki comments. Some of the commenters really make the dramas better 😂 but sometimes inaccurate translations will distract me too much. Ours
    It’s ok for k-dramas since I’m not fluent, but for tw and c- dramas I prefer c-subs, which also helps my comprehension if the speech isn’t clear or is too complex.
