Meteor Garden 2018 Episode 28 Review


Isn’t he the cutest? Probably the best thing that happened in this episode!

Just like the previous episode, it was all meh and nothing much to look forward to in the first two episodes of week 5. You can still rant to me about your disappointment in this post!


Monkey Girl is back! No, she’s not out here to be Dao Ming Si’s rebound but just to be a good friend of his and also Shancai’s.


Meizuo does nothing but talk about his love life that even Lei and Ximen jokingly gave up on him. Please make it serious… Haha! Half-kidding…


Shancai is having her moment of solitude while staring at her adorable picture with Dao Ming Si. I have foreseen that this will happen when we caught glimpse of these photos posted on Ah Si’s bedroom wall! Although I said that those photos would be handy for the amnesia arc…


Nooo, don’t say that! Meizuo and Ximen talked about it ever since Dao Ming Si has been out of contact with them.


All of them gathered to make Ah Si happy aka no mention of Shancai lol


Dao Ming Si stormed out of the restaurant because he hated how they were forcing their closeness. It triggered Ximen and sadly, these two were caught in a fight.*Sighs*. This happened in the original drama too, by the way.


Lei and Ximen continue to ignore Meizuo and his love problems. I loved how Lei did not just ignore Meizuo for the sake of ignoring. He did it wonderfully by sending a message to Shancai. AAAAHHH.


You know what they say, a busy lifestyle could cure a broken heart. Shancai accidentally discovered her Eight Treasure sauce as a great match with her dad’s freshly caught squids. She and her mom have been working non-stop!


It’s only really Lei who could talk into sense with Ah Si. Really love their brotherhood!


Ah Si called Lei lame by convincing him to drink Yu Sao’s soy milk. Lei told him that sometimes, even if you don’t like something, you still have to do it for the one you love or care about. For instance, drinking this soy milk prepared by Yu Sao. Such a cute scene!


We could have a full episode of these two and we will not ever complain. Promise.


Ximen and Lei are us whenever she-who-must-not-be-named is being shown or mentioned. Again, WE DON’T CARE.


Well-said, Ximen. I would rather have more screen time for this only normal guy in this drama!

In a nutshell,

  • Nothing really happened in this episode… Like really.
  • With only a few glimpses of Lei and his bromance with Dao Ming Si, they made this episode more worthy to watch. Unfortunately, the useless story line took to much screen time that those two could not save this episode enough.
  • This episode made me appreciate Ximen more. He claims to be the most mature out of everyone (which is kind of true) and I loved how he was the most concerned with Dao Ming Si.

It’s so unfortunate that we had to get this kind of episode. Oh well, even roses have its thorns… So what did you think of this episode?

    Is the Caina storyline in the original Meteor Garden?? Is this week’s episodes different from the original?
    I’m actually okay with the slow episodes 😍. I love watching Shancai with her parents, and I do like seeing old Daomingsi. And I do keep wishing the show wasn’t subbed!!

      Nope! Pretty much the same except for the Caina storyline. The original MG dragged it out for another irrelevant character (played by Wallace Chung) in the fishing village. Old Dao Ming Si is hot haha! You mean dubbed? Yeah, we all wish that too even though we have 10+ episodes left lol

    This episode was so lame, it’s funny. They inserted a lot of advertisments, unnecesary storylines and deletable scenes. 😑😶 (*insert face-palm for the nth time*)

    Don’t get me wrong, I love HYD and its adaptations, just that this second-half season started way off. 😟😪

    What I love about this episode is that we get lots of BL moments of Lei & Ah Si. Am not sure though how I should feel with prolonged “go-back-to-high-school-feel” scene.

    Darren Chen as Hua Ze Lei is sooo adorable!!! 😍😄😊

      I wish this episode didn’t happen instead. It was that bad.

      Same! I just couldn’t believe that they did this to us ugh.

      True! They saved us for a few minutes. I hated the HS feel because they did it for Caina ugh I’m just forever annoyed.

      Yesss!!! He’s so precious huhu

    Thanks for the selective recap and screencaps of Lei and the GREAT BROMANCE. Same. Wish they just gave us one episode of Lei and AhSi and I will not complain.
