[Mainland Chinese Web Drama 2017] I Love My President Though He Is A Psycho 总裁在上我在下

Recommended Posts

Even though our lead guy is a bit nutty I like him because you can see he is just line Xianonian lonely,never really fitting in and wanting someone to love and have a family. Xianonian unfortunately ended up with the adopted family from H E L L. But she is lucky they dissolved the adoption as they are completely crazier then Gongou in my opinion. I feel that Qianchu  is also a bit nuts and now that he has his memory back he will continue to try to get Xianonian back ruining her budding relationship with Gongou. Even though Gongou is successful he still is alone as well except for the butler/steward.

Every time I see Qianchu on the screen he gives me the shivers in the way he looks at Xianonian (and that is saying something considering Gongou is suppose to be the crazy one.) He lost three years of his memory due to that family and while Xianonian continued to hold on and fight for him to get his memory back she was treated unfairly and he even contributed to it. Now that he has got his memory back and knows that all of it was a set up by her family he wants to try to think that the situation can be easily cleared up and people punished meaning he can go back to three years ago when they were together. Xianonian may understand what he went through and that most of it was not his fault be he treated her badly as well in my opinion and never once tried to see past what he was told even if he forgot her and now trying to get her back or ruining whatever relationship she has with Gongou is not going to be able to take them back to the way they were.

Xianonian has already started to fall for Gongou, its why she was wearing the ring and why she remembered his telling her he liked her. His methods may be over the top and crazy but he seems to be the only real person to ever stand by her and tell her she is not alone and truly mean it. Even when he flies off the handle and goes too far you can see he still likes her (of course I wish he would tone it done and stop hurting her in the process. ).

Spoiler

From the preview of the last episode it seems he tries hypnosis to have her memory come back and perhaps found out more about her rotten adopted family because you see him saying how he is going to make her family pay slowly. It is either in their treatment of her and how they drugged her twice and used him or are trying to paint her again as a homewrecker. Either way I hope he ruins that family for what they did to her and how they continue to play on her need for family and to belong.

It is driving me crazy that it is only one episode a week. I am addicted to this drama.

Thanks to those that provided recaps, clips and video.

I really agree on Qianchu being weird too in fact, the weirder one since he is someone we don't know when he'll snap albeit on the scene on the amusement park. Clearly he became forceful on Xiaonian or it is just me reading it wrongly.  Also I saw a still with Qianchu holding her face with such bad stare which is downright creepy. Gongou, protect you woman well from people who look normal but really more psycho than you!

I saw this video with #10 on it  and presumed to be the 10th ep and true enough, google translated the title as the last ep of the drama. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=itocnjbPd50&feature=youtu.be But it was removed already. I just viewed it minutes ago but it was removed immediately. What the. Anyway, it was a narration with stills from the drama. Too bad it has subtitle in Chinese on it. :bawling:

@Ldy Gmerm @40somethingahjumma I agree with your comments. Though the story sounds weird and even crazy, it is still better than other chinese dramas that are much more makjang. In my opinion, Qianchu is dangerous for our heroine. 

  • He can be as manipulative and selfish as Shidi and her parents. Notice that before he regained his memory, he was cold and very cruel towards Xianonian. Even if he had been drugged to forget her, he had no reason to treat her like that. I mean, she was still officially his fiance's sister. Then once he got his memories back, he wants Xianonian back without thinking about the consequences of his decisions. By announcing that his marriage was not registred, the first scapegoat for Shidi's humiliation is naturally Xianonian. 
  • He even lied to her in order to make her leave Gongou. Gongou might be possessive and a little weird, but there is one thing that distinguishes from all the others: he never lies. He was indeed drugged three years ago and slept with a woman. Then unlike Qianchu, Gongou did confess to her, while so far, Qianchu has been promising her to go the amusement park and to be a family. To me, family doesn't look like a wife and husband relationship, more he will become her guardian or older brother.
  • Third, he knew where Shidi would meet the accomplice, which means that he also listened to the phone conversation somehow. He knew that Xianonian would be there. She cared for him for so long but in the end, it is all about his wishes and desires. He is not protecting her at all. MAking her leave Gongou didn't mean that she could run to him. Don't forget that the parents were waiting for him. We see Gongou in a different light: he has no problem to be beaten by his father, once the latter proposed an arranged marriage.
  • Finally, Gongou is the only one who sees Xianonian's true personality: she is a very caring and warmhearted person. On the other hand, Qianchu only thinks about his needs and himself. Although she lied to Gongou and she didn't follow his requests, he never abandonned her. He kept protecting her. In my opinion, the fact that she denied everything after being tormented by Gongou (episode 1) showed him that she was actually a honest person. Many women would have agreed expecting some money and advantages. Yet, she dared to defy him and even risked her life because she didn't want to lie.

Many woman would have agreed expecting some money and advantages. Yet, she dared to defy him and even risked her life because she didn't want to lie.      

I think your analysis of Gongou and Qianchu are spot on. It ties in with what I said above. There was no real reason for him to treat her the way he did even if she had slept with another man. He was with her sister and about to marry. All he needed to do is be polite and firm with her. But he was nasty to her and as he pointed out she was the one person still trying to get him to and help him to remember his past.

Qianchu standing around asking the back of Xianonian as she walks away if all he is to her is family , shows that he knows the answer to that question based on what she has said to him. His being with her sister was very hurtful just like his forgetting the one person that was beside him the most. For her it is about having at least one person that she use to care about as family still be a tie for her.   Unfortunately he is taking advantage of that.

Qianchu acts like he has no idea of the things they say and do to Xianonian but I suspect he does. Once they put her out of the house which he and once they asked her to dissolve the adoption see how he turns up lurking around having left spray paint for her. He mentions he knew what they were going to do but at no time has he stood up for Xianonian and told them she has done nothing to entice him. To pull him from Shidi. He continues to use her as a shield and allow them to think she is trying to take him from Shidi instead of just saying that is not the truth. Xianonian has become a pawn for Qianchu and if she did not have Gongou around her he would be trying to manipulate her more than he already is. 

I too felt that Qianchi knew a lot more earlier on about what Shidi and her family were up to way before Xianonian came to him for help to find her college friend. His showing up at the meeting place at her hotel room proves he is keeping tabs on Xianonian in some fashion.  Just like I think he wanted her to be misunderstood by Gongou and have her walk away from the man. His little game is only hurting Xianonian because she is the innocent party but being miss understood by everyone.

Qianchi looks obsessed with Xianonian and possessive indeed. His looks to her are far more sinister to me then Gongou. If he gets a chance to get her alone I can see him trying to force her to go to bed with him so he can try to claim her for his own. OF course setting her up to be caught by his family and Shidi's causing even more trouble for her. All so he can be free and have XIanonian again in his life. What better way then to try to ruin her reputation.

Now that Xianonian has slept with Gongou (hopefully) and seems ok with it the next morning I hope it is time for her to realize that she may like Gongou as well and stop having so much contact with Qianchi. Gongou is willing to endure anything to be with her and I hope that Xianonian shows him she is starting to feel the same. Both of them I think need time away from his family and the crazy people she knows in order to get to know one another more and talk about how they are feeling. NO anger, no fear and no crazy tantrums. I think what I am most waiting on is for Gongou to realize that Xianonian has fallen in love with him as well. I want to see his face when he realizes that his feelings are being returned.

@Ldy Gmerm Yes, Qianchu did everything to create a misunderstanding and a quarrel between Gongou and Xianonian. Going into the same hotel room, then hugging her outside while he was still officially married to Shidi are just two examples. He said that he wanted to help her but in reality, meeting had another purpose. Making Gongou think that Xianonian is not loving him. Xianonian met him for another reason: to confront him about his lies. When Xianonian protected Qianchu from Gongou, it was because she abhorrs violence. But since Gongou was mad, he wouldn't listen to anything therefore she protected him as she thought, such a behaviour is unjustified and excessive. However, due to her reaction, Gongou misunderstands her. I do think that she doesn't love Q. like in the past. His marriage, the painful words he told her, and the lies/manipulation made him look like her former family. Actually she is not horrified and ashamed after that night. Gongou doesn't want to meet her because he doesn't know how she will react.

That is very true. I think he does not want to see her angry with him as well because he knew she was drugged and was powerless to walk away from his feelings and body reactions. I do think had he seen her the morning after that he would realize she would not be angry. But given the fact that they are not on the same page yet it may take an episode or two before they are able to get things cleared up. (hopefully).

I saw a trailer for this drama were Gongou and Xianonian were looking at one another then Gongou has Xianonian over his shoulder in a fireman's lift and then she is sitting on a table or desk and he is leaning over her like he wants to kiss her or says something  and she puts her hands over his mouth in a playful way looking around to see if someone heard what he said. Since I do not think I have seen that scene yet it gives me anticipation that eventually they will know each others hearts and be together.  I think they are cute together and are just what each other needs in their lives.

I took the amusement park incident the same way. Xianonian was upset that Gongou would not listen to her and hurt that he is accusing her. Xianonian protected Qianchu not because she still loved him but because he was once a person she cared for and considered family and because he was suppose to have been helping her. But instead she is starting to realize the people that she cared so much about are not nice people nor do they hold great fondness for her beyond trying to use her for their own means.

As I said above I do not think Qianchu will give up too easy. No matter if he is forced to stay with Shidi or not he is determined to try to get Xianonian back. I think her going away is prolly a good thing as she needs to be beyond his obsessed reach for a moment because he will escalate to keep her from moving on with Gongou.

 I think this scene was shown in ep 2 where Gonguo asked Xiaonian to be his partner for the party (w/c is the same party where they were both drugged. Actually, I didn't understand the sub well but I can see Gongou teasing her and its so cute. Hahaha

The scene I am talking about does not seem to be in episode 2. I am putting the trailer video found on youtube. It starts at :42 seconds into the trailer and ends at :47 seconds. I have not seen that dress she is wearing while on his shoulder or sitting on the desk/table when she puts her hand over his mouth. But I do like the kiss and how he is behind her starting at that time. I like his teasing of her I think both of them have not had a lot of something like that. And it has been three years since Xianonian had it with Qianchu.

I need to read all your comments, but before than that I need to say that I'm in the right thread. I think we're more or less thinking the same. That Gonguo, with his apparent madness, is the most sane of all. :blush:

For real this girl needs to be rescued from her sh#tty family and friends by her rich psychotic suitor. Though he crossed the line for me by having his minions kick and beat her! What the heck Gongou? This show has twisted something in me though, because I was rooting for that love scene, despite the circumstances.

I will never accept a man who had his minions beat me no matter what his excuse was. That will be the end of us.

Indeed. I mean I wouldn't have gotten past the initial abduction, this is not reflective of reality at all. :)

 Oh so sorry on that part. I easily presumed it to be in ep 2 since table was mentioned but I hope we can see it soon though I doubt it will be in Ep 5 since next week would be a hard episode for Xiao nian (her dysfunctional family smearing her name). Maybe we'll see it once Xiao nian confesses or when Gongou realizes she has feelings for him too.

unfortunately i think they title the drama wrongly ROFL :D:D

This show is all kinds of disturbing. If people thought Jung from Cheese in the Trap was bad, this male lead is worse. But despite his mental health issues which probably comes from the way he's raised, there's something weirdly attractive about him in how much he does care about the female lead.

The acting's not the greatest but it's eye candy crack. And the story as badly conceived as it is, does have a certain pull. It feels like bad fanfiction but even badly written fiction can be entertaining.

 

u are right on the dot lols the acting left lil to be wonder at times but still it had a certain pull like you said :D and me being part of the one being pull over can be terms as a lil crazy too? :D

I just watched episode 3 with eng sub. What was that? :flushed:  Her adoptive family is the worst! :unsure: They're wrong and lie as if they're right. :o

And it's funny that Gongou accused them for drugging her, but he seized the opportunity with her. He let himself be coaxed fast and succumbed to lightning speed. He was easier than the multiplication table of cero. :tongue: :D

First time commenting on Soompi, but I couldn't resist when I saw this thread. I've been dying to chat with others about this crazy pants drama. It seriously goes against everything I believe as a feminist, but this show is like crack. I've stopped myself from recommending it to my other drama-watching buds because it could be really triggering. I feel like I have to add a bunch of caveats. It reminds me of those old torrid romances from the 80s with the domineering alpha who is abusive to the heroine until they fall in love and/or their love changes him. Which is completely not reality, but is somehow okay to watch play out in dramaland. I can't figure out why I want Xiaonian to be with such an abusive jerk (I mean, he's both verbally and physically abusive with the way he threatens her and grabs her. And hello, there was something so cringeworthy about him sleeping with her when she was drugged. That could be called rape since she wasn't in her right mind to give consent.). But he's given just enough layers to make us sympathetic. Aside from his paranoia, he's obviously come from an abusive background himself.

I think the only reason I can tolerate this is due to the way Xiaonian is written. Even when Gongou's domineering, she doesn't seem to really fear him, or at least hasn't since they left the castle. When he's threatening her the most, she still speaks her mind and doesn't back down. When she was drugged, that scene was written as if she did want him and the drugs simply removed her inhibitions (which again, dramaland. I'd scream foul if this was real life). She's even finding ways to maneuver around his paranoia and still do what she wants to do. When he told his men to beat her, though, that didn't ring right to me. Oddly, I didn't feel like it fit with his character or that her response to it afterwards fit with hers. In his screwed up mind, I would think that he would believe that only he's allowed to hurt her, not his men or her family or anyone else. She's his woman, as he's claimed multiple times. And she didn't even get the chance to vent her anger and hurt at what he did, which I believe she would in her own determined manner. It's interesting how they bring in the butler every time Gongou goes too far in order to solicit Xiaonian's (and the viewer's) sympathy once more.

I do agree with @Ldy Gmerm that Xiaonian getting away from her family and ex is a good thing. When she and Gongou are alone, they have a way of consoling each other in their shared brokenness. That scene where he took care of her after her family divorced her was sweet. He was rough around the edges, but he listened to her, gave her a shoulder to lean on, and promised to be there for her. They also managed to happily play together, which seems like something foreign to him. I'm looking forward to more of those scenes. I'm also wildly curious if he started this all intending to marry her or to keep her as a mistress. It's going to be interesting to hear more of his thoughts and feelings coming from him instead of the butler.

@Cory Jackson @Ldy Gmerm @lolalarue@andreasofia16

The reason why I don't see it as a rape was that Xianonian was conscious. The drug only lowered her defense towards Gongou. Usually drugs for rape make you more or less unconscious. Moreover, the latter only started kissing her, after asking her if she could recognise him. The moment she mentioned his name, he saized the opportunity. If you observe his behaviour in the different episodes, you come to the conclusion that he wanted her as his girlfriend and future wife (he once told her about having his kids) from the start. Why? Because the whole thing started, when the arranged marriage was on his way.  

Then he kept mentioning to her that they already had sex three years ago so that she didn't need to act as a shy person. The fact that he is upset that she has forgotten their  meeting three years ago proves to me that he could never forget her. Furthermore he often aborded that topic (having sex with her) which underlines his determination to become her boyfriend. When he proposed her the contract, he had already that in his mind. 

The other reason why I don't see it as rape is her reaction after waking up. She knows what happened and doesn't seem to be hurt and upset. Sure, it would have been better without the aphrodisiac drug, yet it helped her to make a decision: accepting to become Gongou's girlfriend for real. 

Moreover, I would like to add another observation: when Gongou punched Qianchu and even hurt his girlfriend, he had no idea that she had the ring he had offered her. We shouldn't forget that the ring symbolises the love of Gongou for her. First, she refuses the ring by giving the excuse that it is too expensive. In my opinion, she doesn't feel worthy of wearing such a ring. So Gongou throws it away but he doesn't see her picking it up. But she didn't just take the ring, she is wearing it with her necklace which indicates that she has definitely feelings for him and has even accepted him as a boyfriend. However, Gongou never saw her wearing the ring with her necklace. That's why when she gives it back to him, he is first shocked and then gets more furious as he is experiencing again another rejection. Yet after some time, he keeps thinking with the ring in front of him. After the fight, I believe that Gongou realises that by having the ring close to her chest and heart, she had finally come to love him. Hence by taking the ring, his hand is a little shaking. Somehow he does regret his decision for hurting her which also explains why he sent a man to look after her. The ring is a proof that she had him in her mind. At last, when he sees Xianonian drugged and asking for him, he tries to stop her... however since she is aware of his identity and she did have feelings for him as she had the ring, he eventually gives in. From my point, he had been longing for her for a long time. 

@Ldy Gmerm (edit)Then I would like to ask a question about a scene: in the first episode, we see him buying a painting created by Xianonian, when she was a student. How do you explain this scene? I believe, this scene is important. My theory is that he had already set his eyes on her before the incident 3 years ago. I am also wondering why Xianonian really can't remember that night and day. She has indeed a blackout. So the story about the incident three years ago is not over in my opinion.

@bebebisous33 I'm totally tracking with you in dramaland. I actually agree with you entirely that what you laid out is what the writers intended. And I am entirely sucked into this and wanting this couple together. But with the caveat that I have to completely let go of reality. I think the writers intended that scene to be played as romantic and I was even with them. Still, my brain was still throwing up red alerts about consent while under the influence. I just had to remind my brain that this is based on fantasy.

I liken it to the debate on Edward and Bella in Twilight. Is it creepy that he broke into her room to watch her sleep without her awareness, or is it romantic? It's creepy if you're talking about your teenage sister, but it sounds romantic to some when you're living in the book/movie world. I think that's part of why I'm fascinated with this show. It's making me think about the lines we're willing to cross in a fantasy world vs. what is acceptable in real life. The tension between those two makes me uncomfortable while watching this show. Because all my "abusive relationship" alarms are clanging, but I still want the couple together.

Also, I'm a writer, so I overthink everything when it comes to character and plot development. :)

You post above put in what I suspected as well. The only question I have is did Gongou see the picture at the gallery of Xianonian and fall for her first or did he see it after the meeting 3 years ago? How long has he liked her?  Either way I came to the same conclusion that he is in love with her with the intention to marry her. As stated above right from the start he claims her and tells her that the only one to have his children is her. (qualified to or wanted) He never seemed the type to toy with a woman on the side. He seemed determined to have the woman he has prolly thought of and wanted for so long Xianonian. He said it himself he is willing to do anything to be with her. If that means suffer the abuse from his father we can see he is doing it. He only wants Xianonian and no one else.

I too did not see it as rape because he tried to give her an out by asking if she knew who she was with. The moment she said his name he gave into what he has wanted all along to be that close to her. I too say that drug lowering her inhibitions and giving her a chance to love him intimately as well. Gongou took care of her and was very angry that they gave her an aphrodisiac. From what I see he tried hard to keep his distance but she was all over him and he is only human. When she woke up she did not seem angry and she had a flash of what happen the day before so her question was "did she hook up with Gongou?" Showed she remembered. And it was not anger it was one of thoughtfulness. IF she felt he forced her she would have been very angry and screaming bloody murder. This time it is Gongou who is running trying to not see her in case she wants to cry foul and accuse him of taking advantage. He looks afraid to see it when I am sure the night before meant something to him. (I wonder if they truly did it and made a baby that he craves with her.)

That ring was a shock to him. His face when she ripped it off and threw it said it all. He was shocked to see it. HE could not believe that she had been wearing it. He knows it is the ring he was going to give her when he asked her to marry him. To see she had it and not lost like he thought when he threw it away had to surprise him. It's interesting how much he looked at it as he thought about it after what happen.

That family is awful. I do not understand how Xianonian ended up with those people. I can't even fathom what they were going to do with her if she had not got up and tried to leave. Would they have taken her somewhere and let someone have her or hurt her under that influence of that drug? Then took pictures to smear her? What kind of people do that to someone who does not deserve it all because their real daughter can't seem to keep the man they all tricked into being with her? Did they not care what could have happen to Xianonian? Of course they did not care, how could they if they did something like this playing on her need to keep them as family even after how they have treated her. Thank goodness Gongou sent a man to get her at that moment. That woman telling her to go home and lie down was just too much! Whose home would she go too? Theirs (Heck no!)? or they send her to a stranger? OR would shidi send her to Gongou like that? (I think not.) My guess if that driver had not shown up no telling were this poor girl would have ended up.

I am interested to see what happens next between these two. I can't say I am happy to see from the preview that the awful family tries to make her into a home wrecker and ruin her reputation but I do hope Gongou destroys them. Their latching on to Qianchu just shows what type of people they are. I hope they are sent to jail by the end of this drama.

(Does not mean I condone this type of behavior. Because someone under the influence of a drug should be better looked after and be able to endure without worrying of someone taking advantage. I think it is a matter of perspective. Had she woken up and screamed it was rape or he took advantage then it would have been seen as such. It was her body.)
