The sparks have started to fly...
We start off again with Xiao Hua seeking justice for Tang Men. Xiao Hua jumps in front of the car and starts berating Tang Men, telling him that he cannot quit. Amusingly, Tang Men changes his mind and pretends that he had always intended to fight back. They go, Tang Men reveals the truth and Ji Nuo is fired. See later on in this post for a sweet little smile Xiao Hua is rewarded with.
As Jia Si Le waits for Xiao Hua while suffering her Grandma's wrath, Xiao Hua and Tang Men spend some quality time together.
And, obviously, the only way to see where you are going when it is raining extremely hard is to put plastic bags over your head and stick it out the windows to see the road. I really don't understand how this works...(but it does make for a good laugh)
As if that is not enough, the two decide to start drinking and toasting to random things such as Tang Men being a robot...Being happily drunk, Xiao Hua starts lamenting about what it is like to kiss...
It seemed like a pretty passionate kiss to me. But of course the next day, you know something has to mess things up. Jiang Mi shows up and thankfully Xiao Hua gets out of the house without her real identity being revealed to Jiang Mi. (I forgot about this part, which confused me later on...)
I don't know whether it's a true test or not, but Jiang Mi apparently knows how to test the feelings of a guy by telling him to pick a scenario. It would be cool if it actually works. If anyone is a psychology major, please let me know.
This is the first time we really get the sense that Xiao Hua is falling for Tang Men. And perhaps Tang Men has some feelings for her (from the Jiang Mi psychology test).
The sentiments are a bit different on Tang Men's side, however. He cannot wait to get rid of her and ends up telling her to finish up her last lesson. The last lesson doesn't go well as Tang Men basically tell her to get out of his sight. That's one of the things I really like about this series: It can turn ugly, then funny, and then sad so quickly, yet so effectively.
Having ended with a sad farewell to Tang Men's hairdryer, Xiao Hua and Tang Men never expected to see expected again. However, fate does not seem to be on their side (or should I say, it is on their side?). First, we find out that Jiang Mi is not as innocent as we thought she was. I really was hoping that she would simply accept it, but, of course, we must have an antagonist and a rival for love to make the story interesting. And then...
I love how her elegance and class just suddenly disappears. The faces are hilarious. Anyway, back at the scene Tang Men and Xiao Hua have an interesting argument about why Xiao Hua wants to date Jia Si Le.
And then Jiang Mi walks in...
I am enjoying this series a lot. I think by now, the shock of Xiao Hua's voice has worn off and it has started to seem natural. However, I am still hoping that her hair tones down a bit, though she does pull the poofy haired look off pretty well.
What is making this series for me is the interaction between Tang Men and Xiao Hua. The two actors, Will Pan and Rainie Yang create such chemistry between the two characters that I can't find myself wondering whether Xiao Hua should be with Jia Si Le or not. That might be a bad thing since the second male lead should have a least some chemistry between him and the female lead for the series to be more interesting. However, I'm not complaining. I have the two guys to drool at and I'm satisfied.
