WQ’s mother is unredeemable. She is actually lucky to have such a capable son who not only kept the art gallery afloat, but grew the company. WQ does all the work. His mother reaps the financial benefits hating her son. WQ not only suffers from his mother’s cold attitude towards him, he gets grief from her brother too. XF told ZS that WQ used to get bullied by the uncle back in the day. Can’t stand them! I would love for WQ to kick her out of YM & cut her off. 

 

yes the mother is selfish.....she only blame the son....for a moment she never stood and look on from the son point of view....at least the father tried to redeem himself even though he had honestly left things too late...

 

he wanted to grew a talent and the way he grew it is wrong....u do not grew the talent the way you wanted it however you let it grow the way it was suppose to be.....and give pointers to make it better.....

 

the uncle is greedy only wanted things that is reaping in fortune the easy way....

 

which was also why i said that WeiQing mainly grew up on his own.....and while the father may have established the art gallery....it was WeiQing management that had made them grew further and way more into the arts world and stood firm and tall......WeiQing didnt cut his mother off maybe it was also out of guilt as he had always felt that he was responsible for his dad death......it may be true in certain angle.....however the dad did it for the love he have for his son....and also to save his son....the mother never went to understand the whole situation or maybe she knew since i bet the authority would have told her what actually happen to begin with.......and she left it alone not telling WeiQing to truth as she wanted to see her suffer as she had for losing a husband....

 

she love her husband too much to the point of she forgot that she is also a mother....

Ok, now that EP.18 & 19 are subbed, we are entering the fun part from EP.20, WQ moving into her place above her:joy:

So all the finance of YM are manipulated by Dir.He and I hate his mom to the core.  And I like how WQ, when he had the conversation with his uncle, referred his mom as "your eldest sister" and not his mom.  :thumbsup:

So, miss xue is in love with WQ, which was confirmed by his uncle.  I don't know what will be her next step.  Hope she just return xunran gallery back to WQ and give a big slap to his mom, by doing that.

So, NF do understand how WQ is, but small misunderstandings between them are separating the both.  Hope they reconcile fast in the future. 

And OMG,.the kiss between NF and FF, wow!!!!! This boy can kiss!!!!:love:

Reg.our main OTP, they are very cute.  Atlast she found out the reason for his allergic reactions.  But it was funny how she ran around his house thinking of more physical contacts from him with her, since she was the one he can touch not having any allergic reactions.:joy:.  she tried to overpower him believing she is more stronger than him not thinking that he is a guy who is more strong than her.  So cute.  Atlast she surrendered.  I like how WQ is progressing with SS slowly and steadily in getting his love and attracting attention from her.  When he understood how simple minded and lovable ZS is, he started approaching her, in her way itself.  :kiss_wink:.  It's so different from the usual dramas in which the ML will force upon himself in his richly ways on FL.  

The fun part is coming in future.  Let's enjoy them, now that only 11 episodes are only remaining.  Jai you!!!!

Just finished episodes 18 and 19.  As i said previously I'm glad Zhou shi isn't written as stupid even if she can be a little naive or clueless at times, the drama makes it clear she isn't dumb.  Zhou Shi figured out and confronted Wei Qing about his allergy and figured out Xiao Fei was Xun Ran.  My favourite scenes were: ZS confronted WQ, ZS figuring out who XF was and the scene where XF told her who his identity was so cute!

 

Excellent scene when WQ confronted his uncle about his underhanded dealings.  I still think it's a bit of a stretch we are supposed to believe slimy uncle is only 2 years older than WQ...:wacko:

 

Looking forward to the fun now WQ is living so close to ZQ for his "treatment":w00t:

 

Did anyone notice BQJ song at the karaoke was just all the elements in The Periodic Table? Perfect song for her!:lol::lol::lol:

because the uncle always rub it into his face that his mother hate him :/ the uncle is a leech a damn leech and to me the mother is not far away from the leech title.....even though she had a lil bit more dignity to try to steer away or create unnecessary trouble for the son.....i give her that much grace that's all.....

hmmm....i do not think Miss Xue is totally in love with WeiQing....she was more interested in the status that WeiQing could give her instead.....she wanted to further establish herself in those upscale society...where everyone will look up to her....and WeiQing could give her that.....hence her interest in WeiQing....and that how i see it.....

 

it will be NingFei and ZhouShi who managed to push MissXue to sell back the gallery to WeiQing :)

actually she is strong....quite strong and she can actually overpower WeiQing if she put her mind to it and avoid being distracted by WeiQing closeness :D

Oh ok.  Thanks.  Now I understand from your post above.  Since his uncle says to her that "I know u r interested in my nephew". I thought she is in love with him which is unlikely rather than his status

Hehehe, IKR.  She can but distracted when he is near her. How she also loose talked about her remembering kissing him at the swimming pool. He started teasing her.:joy:

I've watched ep. 18-19 and FINALLY Zhou Shi knows about Wei Qing's allergy/illness! Yes! Xia I'm looking forward to the two of them working together to find a cure and falling in love with each other.  Other things I liked in these episodes:

1) ZS  figuring out on her own about the reasons for Wei Qing avoiding touching people, as well as figuring out by herself the identity of Xiao Fei is Xun Ran. It was nice to see her character has a normal intelligence level since so many times these female leads are portrayed as clueless and can't figure anything out, even things that an average person would be able to understand.  I also like that her character stands up for herself. 

2) Xiao Fei coming to the rescue of Fei Fei, and Fei Fei finally being able to see Xiao Fei as a potential partner. 

3) XF & FF kisses! Loved how XF kissed FF first, and then FF kissed XF again. Kudos to the actors for making the kisses relaxed and reciprocal, and not awkward and stiff. 

4) Bi Qiu Jing singing the Periodic Table song at the karaoke! LOL! It was too funny. Also, loved how when FF told her to come with her to the toilet, BQJ said "but I haven't sung the english version yet!" :lol: Agree with @raziela it's the perfect song for her!

 

Question for the forum: Why is Wei Qing moving into the art studio space above ZS apartment?  Did he give a reason and I just missed it?

As WQ don't like NF, he made him vacate his art studio above ZS apt and he bought the place, I suppose.  But NF was taken in by these girls. 

Since he want to be with ZS for his treatment he is moving near her also make his moves to somehow fall in love with him.  He is very smart and I think he also knows that LMC is not in love with ZS and it's a one-sided love.  So, this is the opportunity for him to move close with her. 

 

But he will be so sweet from now on.  He will help her in her academics and will be a great moral support to her.  Love him so much from EP.20 on:love::wub:

I'm looking forward to it! I  want them to get together but I am enjoying this platonic phase of their relationship with slightly flirty WQ so much. Love how this drama has so may tropes but it feels like we are getting a fresh spin on them :heart:

WeiQing is being unfair to NingFei, however it was also because NingFei did something right back at WeiQing when he was first in the house....which further drive the hedge in between WeiQing and his parent.

 

however we can't blame NingFei on that as it was his home after being in the orphanage and finally there is someone who will take him....hence he wanted to be rooted and didnt want to be uprooted again.....besides he was only just a boy then.....

 

finally towards the end....NingFei and WeiQing did have a talk of course with ZS around :)

Thanks for explaining things. I appreciate it. Can't wait to see all of the cute moments ahead for our OTP.

Episode 20 and 21. Another great pair of episodes!  It's so much fun watching WQ helping ZS with her studies.  He's a mean teacher but clearly it is working!  I loved that he worked so hard to help her and believed in her even though her classmate gave up on her:lol: 

 

It was so cute how WQ was like a lost puppy without ZS.  He couldn't be without her for 5 days before he was bored and sighing and HAD to go to the university to see her :wub:   So hilarious how the roommates and ZS tried to sneak food up to her in ZS in her bag like she was Rapunzel in the tower.  Too bad WQ caught them!

 

The fight scene at the beginning was cringy but I'm glad the drama hasn't forgotten about ZS's crazy strength! And it gave us some cute scenes of jealous WQ and some sexual tension when she was putting salve on his wounds.

 

All I can say about Fei Fei is she has terrible taste in men. Between slimy uncle and her piece of trash ex-boyfriend who might also be a gang member her track record is dreadful.  She needs to take ZS' advice about relationships and start looking for a good man instead of a rich one.

 

The little phone conversation between Genius BQJ and LMC was sweet!  She is truly oblivious to his feelings

 

Shoutout to PA Wei An who is WQ's loyal wingman and is the only family has had in all these years.  I am not even going to say anything about his mother.  She makes me so mad!  It's heartbreaking because you can see that WQ still craves her acceptance and love :tears:

 

I think ZS (and the audience) deserve an explanation for his behaviour when she found his secret room.  However I was relieved he didn't freeze her out like I thought he might and continued with the teaching.

Yes, needs to be addressed at some point. WQ shouldn’t be mad or stay mad considering all his trickery from the beginning with her. WQ/ZS have come a long way.

I have finished Ep. 20-21.

There was a lot of cute in these 2 episodes.  I loved watching Wei Qing helping Zhou Shi with studying for her exams, although he was a strict taskmaster as @raziela pointed out. Although it was kind of mean for WQ to get rid of the Senior classmate tutor so he would be ZS only option. However, he was clearly a better teacher, so I'll have to forgive him. It was so funny when Secretary An appeared to Zhou Shi, saying that he knew just the person to help ZS. Someone who had lived and studied in the US, where they had received a fine arts degree, so they could help with both the art exam and the english exam. ZS was all "Really?!..This is great!" Until she realized they were heading back to the Chairman's office. Hahaha!:D

Yes! That scene with WQ was sweet...aww....he was missing ZS so much.  I'm surprised he lasted 5 days!  And Secretary An trying not to laugh when WQ came into his office asking about ZS:lol: He totally knew what WQ was after.  So food was what was in the backpack...hahaha!  FF and BQJ are such good friends to ZS. It's nice to see girl friendships portrayed so sweetly here. They really do look out for each other.   

The fight scene at the beginning of Ep. 20 was really strange for me as I couldn't understand why the ex-boyfriend got so upset over what was really just a shove. Anyway, I'll agree that it was nice to see ZS kick some butt and be the one to save XF. Also liked the sexual tension with ZS treating WQ allergy, plus she was affected when he came out of the bathroom in only a towel. What were the scenes of jealous WQ? I can't believe I missed them! Please let me know. 

Poor Fei Fei is now under the misunderstanding that ZS and XF are a couple. She was so sad, but what a great friend to let it go and  support them. The bad part is this situation is sending her back into Uncle's orbit because she thinks she doesn't have any chance with XF and she is trying to get over him. 

 

As for Wei Qing's mother,...really? She's just too much. Poor WQ! I was glad ZS and FF set her straight about how WQ came to the rescue of XF. I just wish XF could talk to WQ mother more since he seems to be the only person she takes seriously.

Agreed.  He is fortunate ZS is so forgiving. It is great to see how their relationship  has developed and evolved since the beginning.

OMG!  I didn't realise WQ engineered the classmate having to go and work on that other project!  It make sense now!  i did think it was suspiciously convenient that the classmate had to suddenly go and work on a project but I thought it was just a convenient plot development.

It wasn't major but I think he was a little jealous when they got home from the fight and WQ realises Xiao Fei lives with ZS, FF and BQJ.

I'm glad they set her straight.  Some dramas would let that drag on for episodes.  I would like to see XF speak up to her more but maybe he doesn't feel it is his place or he is afraid to alienate her.  Considering how unkind WQ is to XF I actually think XF is far nicer to him than he needs to be. I don't know how nice I would be towards someone who forced me to be homeless.
