This episode was a bit slow in terms of happenings but at least everything was still smooth-sailing even with the evil witch’s return. Seeing Dao Ming Si and Shancai act just like a regular couple was so refreshing to watch. Shall we start?
In true Gen Z style, it’s only official once you post it online or in any social media platform.
Dao Ming Si spoke intelligently in class with a lot of confidence that even the professor was all praises for him.
Someone is just beyond inspired!
Shancai confronted Dao Ming Si and asked why he changed his relationship status. Oh come on, Shancai! I would probably be smiling like an idiot if he changed his status right away for me. It was so touching how he defended himself, he said that the girl he has liked for a long time finally said yes so that should justify it already.
*Subtly looks at his rival*. Loved how Lei said “hey!’ in this scene haha!
Aww. I love how he acknowledges that his happiness is because of Shancai
Shancai apologizes to him but he said that she should just go on a date with him. *Sighs*. I really need a Dao Ming Si!
Our precious babies talking about the future!
He told her that he will be going to London for his family’s business. I loved how Shancai was so open about her feelings in this scene. She told him that she will definitely be sad since it will be hard for her to see him.
She was surprised to learn that begging him would easily make him change his mind. However, she told him that if he has to go, then he still should. Dao Ming Si was disappointed to hear that since he wants to beg her like this…
This was just so cute that I had to replay it right away!
Shancai was so happy to find out that Dao Ming Si will go to graduate school so they can graduate together. Ugh I am just so in love because they are so in love too!
Ximen was surprised to see that Shancai is still living in the Dao Ming mansion. Together with Lei, they warned Ah Si and Shancai again that once Dao Ming Feng finds out, she will make Shancai’s life a living hell. Shancai even forgot that she said so many harsh words to Dao Ming Si’s mom that she’s now scared for her life. Dao Ming Si told them that he can’t do anything because she’s his mom but he will still do anything to protect Shancai.
Look at them being an ordinary couple and even had a plan of running an errand together!
Dao Ming Feng is back! She still discovered Shancai hiding under the table and got surprised to see her in a maid uniform. Yu Sao was the real star of this episode when she gave all the reasons why Shancai shouldn’t leave the house.
It was not explicitly told in this version yet but just to pre-empt if ever they actually reveal how she destroyed her own daughter’s happiness, Zhuang jie married someone for business.
Not sure what the tears of Shancai were for but they must have been from her overwhelming emotions. Who wouldn’t be touched by what Yu Sao did to defend her from the evil mom, right?
Now this is some interesting information that we never got from any version (did they say this in BOF?) that I have watched. Shancai said that Dao Ming Si has mentioned a lot of times that his dad already passed away. In the 2001 drama, Dao Ming Si has only mentioned about his dad once. He said that his dad was busy working abroad when Shancai’s parents asked him mockingly where his dad was.
Then this drama gave us a flashback to Dao Ming Si’s past. Yu Sao said that the Dao Ming family has never been the same happy and warm people ever since Mr. Dao Ming left them. Dao Ming Si was such a problem child that no one could handle his temper at all.
Yu Sao kept persuading Shancai to stay because she has a great plan for her and Dao Ming Si. Oh yes, I really love you, Yu Sao!
In a nutshell,
- *Skips and pretends that the Caina story line wasn’t happening*
- We got a glimpse of the old Ah Si and knowing how he is now made everything so fulfilling for both the audience and Shancai.
- Like I said before, Yu Sao is one underrated character. I just love this wise lady! I’m so glad that her authority has clearly been established even with the presence of Dao Ming Feng.
- I cannot wait how her plan will unfold in the next episodes!
- I know I have said this again and again but I just love how this version gives us flashbacks of our leads’ past lives. Most of their childhood flashbacks make sense and give us more understanding of the characters in the present.
- Shancai and Dao Ming Si talking about the future truly melted my heart. I’m so happy that they’re happy!
