Meteor Garden 2018 Episode 14 Review


You can do anything with Ah Si’s encouragement!

Can you smell what’s cooking in the kitchen? It’s the scent of love and support from our amazing Ah Si. Let’s start cooking some more dishes, shall we?


Shancai’s personal cheerleader! Where do I sign up for one?


He rejoiced so loudly when Shancai passed the first round! Ugh soooo adorable!


He had so much confidence cheering Shancai while she was cooking but now that he is in front of her, he could not think of proper words to say. *Sighs* Dylan as Ah Si is making me crazy in love.


For the last round of the competition, they were asked to create a hometown dish in only 45 minutes. Shancai’s mind blanked out and did not know what to prepare. Ah Si to the rescue! He reminded her that it was for her dad’s debt of 1 million. Although I still would not know what to do if I were Shancai because that’s just a lot of pressure…


Shancai got a pineapple and everyone found it funny (I did too!)


Supportive Zhuang jie found her brother pretty cute when he barged into the scene.


His slow clap was just the cutest when the judges were praising Shancai’s dish.


They asked Shancai why she chose to add pineapple to her dish. She told them that it was based on personal experience *wink wink*. Look at F3 being so cute and making fun of Ah Si!


Unsurprisingly, Zhou Caina won the competition! Dao Ming Si being so immature and childish was the winner of this competition for me haha!


But wait, they made an exception and gave Shancai a special prize!


Look at that face and those eyes that are basically screaming “love”. I’m so thankful that Shancai made it a point to include him in her victory speech. Love is really in the air!


He was Shancai’s cheerleader from the beginning up to the end of the competition.


Victory dinner at Ah Si’s house with the rest of F4 and Zhuang jie!


This was all happening with everyone as the audience. He told Shancai that it is one way for her to say thank you to him too.


Everybody seemed to have rejected her (thanks to their team work!). We will definitely see them go on a date again after so long!!! Hallelujah!!!


A cute obstacle is coming along the way as Shancai will definitely bring this boy to their date! 😉

In a nutshell,

  • This cooking contest (beauty contest in the manga) did not happen in the 2001 version so it was very exciting to see.
  • Dao Ming Si’s looks of love towards Shancai just melted my heart. Dylan played his part really well!
  • How could you dare to find ways to escape a date with Ah Si, Shancai?!! But I love where this is going because it will be a date at the zoo just like in the original version 😉

So what did you think of this episode?

Another wonderful week of Meteor Garden has finished. We will be getting the usual number of 6 episodes starting tomorrow!

    Thanks for all your entertaining recaps. I enjoy the drama even more because I now have a better understanding of what is happening. I never read the mangas nor watched the 2001 version. Ah Si is so immature, but his love for Shancai is endearing. I also like the changes they made to this version as you pointed out. I do not want her to beg for money and I like that the F4 boys are not just spoiled brats, but are capable, smart guys.

      Aww that’s really touching! Thank you so much for reading 😊 Ooohh interesting that you’ve never watched the 2001 version! That’s a good and unbiased way of looking at this adaptation. For some reason, his immaturity can make you fall in love but if it were other guys, we’d just be annoyed haha! I was so happy that these changes were planned thoroughly. It reflected how much the team behind the drama dedicated their creative juices to it. Thank you so much again for dropping by!

      Awww thank you for being here since day 1! Really means a lot 🙂 I will always try to squeeze recapping in to my schedule no matter how busy I’ll get. He gave so much justice to Dao Ming Si/Domyouji! Just adorable.

    Love your recaps. Been reading them since episode 3ish, and I love coming here to reread what happened to the characters. I haven’t watched the 2001 version with barbie, but I did watch the Japanese version (and loved it). Dylan is really good in this and I really fell in love with his character. Shancai is amazing (that scene in ep 4, almost had me in tears). You’re doing a great job! I love the recaps and coming here to read your thoughts on the show!!

      Thank you very much! Oh wow, I’m actually amazed that there’s quite a number of people who went straight watching this drama without watching the 2001 version. I super loved HYD too! I fell in love with Dylan’s talent and character here as well. Again, thank you so much and I shall see you here again! 😀
