Miss No Good, Episode 2 summary

>> Saturday, September 20, 2008

Look! It's Will Pan's "Playing Cool" album cover! *points*

In episode 2, Xiao Hua finally receives her "2nd" lesson for her makeover.  As always, the subsequent scenes pertaining to this are fun and entertaining...

Although the things that Tang Men teaches Xiao Hua is predictable, I still had a good laugh. One thing that I really, really wanted to happen was to see Xiao Hua...STRAIGHTEN HER HAIR. Too bad, that obviously didn't happen. Looks like we're stuck seeing this mop-hair wig afterall.

Tang Men teaches Xiao Hua manners when arriving at a restaurant.

So after going through this whole makeover session, Xiao Hua goes on a successful date with Jia Si Le as an elegant lady. But as we all know it, this relationship won't last. Tang Men even warns Xiao Hua that she's better off finding someone she truly loves. But that person will obviously be Tang "Moon" as we continue watching.

In this episode, we also saw a special appearance from singer, eVonne Hsu, in Xiao Hua's dream.

The scene foreshadows a possible "consequence" that Tang Men might have to pay later on in the series for his "poisonous tongue". I'm guessing that it's most likely an obstacle/challenge in his love relationship (duh!). Who knows...we're left hanging as Xiao Hua wakes up from her dream. Nonetheless, it was a nice cameo since it has been a long while since we've seen eVonne. I don't know how many people remember, but Will Pan was featured in one of eVonne's songs when Will just started to transition from being a VJ to a singer in 2002 (check it out!).

The pacing of this drama is so far, so good. There really isn't a character I don't like so far. They all seem to be weird-out and funny in their own way, even Xiao Hua, with her over-the-top acting and squeaky voice (which we can only hope that it'll tone down later)...hahaha...

Just for your reference, its ratings has increased from 1.6% (episode 1) to 2.52% in episode 2, which is following very close behind Hot Shot (2nd place to Invincible Shan Bo Mei).

Oh snap, I forgot 2 translation notes:

Hao Li Ke...
[note: horlicks. Drink mix.]

Okay, Shi Rui Ke.
[note: Shrek]

(That was what Xiao Hua called Tang Men's assistant)...oh well, I guess it wasn't EXTREMELY important.

i don't know if it's just my version, but the sound started getting choppy towards the last fourth...you really notice it in the scene with the fat girls fighting Xiao Hua.
This version though, was SUPER clear. Great job! And wow, thanks for getting it out so fast!
I'm really enjoying this...even though rainie's supposed to be annoying, she's still cute to me! at this point, i'm waiting for more chemistry to develop with her and wilbur but i'm excited for the next episode!

I read on a Chinese blog somewhere (on Baidu, I think) where they pointed out that Jiang Xiao Hua is a pun on "joke". (Same sounds, different tones.)

I totally agree that her mop hair MUST GO! She definitely looks better on straight hair. I actually don't mind her loud and squeaking anymore. Maybe I'm used to it by now after hearing it too many times. =D

I didn't even realised that the goddess was Evonne Hsu until fufu pointed it out. Hahaha!!! I must have been blind. ;D

@ethidda: Xiao Hua's name (小花) means "Little Flower." It's a play on the title, which is also a pun. Xiao hua can mean "campus belle" (校花, hua1) or "joke" (笑話, hua4). The title is a combination of these two, using the 笑 meaning "laugh" or "smile," and the 花 of "campus belle" and Xiao Hua's name. Basically, the whole thing is set up for laughs. Just wanted to make that clear for viewers that didn't know. =p

I like how they used Will Pan's album cover for his giant picture. I'm glad I wasn't the only one that pointed at it when I saw it. Well, not counting Rainie, since she's in it. D:
