 We're also looking for subs. The eng subber's channel was deleted in yt so the drama may no longer be subbed unless viki does it. 

Thanks for the information. I hope that it gets picked up by another subber or Viki.

@40somethingahjumma Thank you very much on that. Your recaps will be so hopeful for us non mandarin readers.

@bebebisous33 Don't worry you're not crazy at all. I hope the others will also send requests for this to be subbed. Many are looking for eng subs too in other blogs. And for some reason I sent a request in musixmatch to add some of the drama's soundtrack to their library. The drama isn't perfect (we know it) but the songs keep pulling me particularly the 反派 (villain) by 叶小开. I'm such a sucker for ballad. I'm not getting obsessed, am I? :mellow:

Major spoiler ep5.  

Read only if you want to know.....

Just finished watching ep. 5.  Super crazy.  XN meets his mom and I was right his mom does not think she's good enough for GO.  she tells XN her family background is too bad and showed XN a folder with her pick of his perfect wife.  XN tells his mom that yes she doesn't have social status, education and grooming like a socialite, but there's one thing she can offer GO which is happiness.  She tells his mother she will try to learn to be his perfect partner.  His mother gave her three months.  XN starts studying day and night and it was too much for her so she fainted.  GO saw this and took her out to relax but he was called to go to a meeting.  She told him to go and she will just go back to her room at the hotel.  She decided to sit outside for a minute and saw someone who look like TC.  The guy started walking away and she follows.  She kept calling TC and when he turned around it wasn't him.  

 SD kidnap XN and brought in a group of masked guys to gang rape her.  She wakes up in her room with GO.  GO think she got rape but she denied it and kept telling him they didn't rape her.  XN then went to confront GO mother and told her she knew the gang rape was her plan.  She made sure that the men marked her body to make it seem like she was raped.  GO mom admit to it and said even though they didn't rape her GO will not believe it.  It will always be in the back of his head and he will not want to be with her because of this.

Next scene:   Later XN got a pregnancy test and found that she is pregnant with GO child.  She was super happy and told GO. GO does not believe it's his child and gave her a glass of milk spiked with abortion drug.  She refuse to drink it and knock the drink down.  Then he got upset and walked away.  Seems like he was getting drunk every night and hanging out with different women.  

He got so drunk one night and went crazy on the girls and knocked down the wine glass and cut his hand.  He kept drunk talking and said He just want to be with XN.  He went to look for her and started rambling about how she's going to leave him once she gives birth to the child.  XN tried to console him and told him she promise she won't leave him.  She thought his rambling was sweet.  The next morning they had breakfast together.  She played the whole drunk conversation to GO and he called her a psycho for recording it.  

Later she went to his office to bring him lunch and saw him blow off on his staff.  She then asked him to go see a doctor help him cure his mental illness.  He said he doesn't want.  She told him to do it for her and tried to entice him to get treatment.  She first told him she would cook more for him.  GO told her that's good but he that's not enough.  He told her he wants cosplay.  If I'm correct I think his meaning is some sex haha.  

Last scene, they are waiting for the doctor and that's when the fiance comes in.  For all who is wondering, the girl Mona is his fiancé who comes from a really good background.  From what GO mother told XN, Mona is the Lancaster heiress and her family is even more well off than GO's family.

i just gave you guys a short summary.  Sorry it's not that detailed :(

Thank you very much! Seems the episode today's coping up with the lack of craziness from the previous ep. It is now very clear that the child from the spoilers is from their present relationship. So what happened 3 yrs. ago is now set aside? It would have been better thought if they showed a flashback of it. 

I was trying to watch the raw in YT but unfortunately the videos for ep 5 were immediately blocked due to copyright. I had the chance to watch only from the start up to the meeting between Xiao nian and Gongou's mom via live streaming in YT.  :bawling:

Ep6 preview:  GO marriage proposal and GO break up with XN

 

https://YouTu.be/Vla2VxeYOrE

They are still showing ep 5 on YouTube but the sound quality is so bad.  Can barely hear what they are saying. I saw it really early so was able to watch the better version.

Ok so I watch ep 6 preview and read some of the conversation.  For people who are wondering about the bathtub scene, he was not drugged.  Although the preview does not explain this, there is a scene where his fiancé said to GO " if you want to chase after her, you can.  As long as you don't value her life".  So she has something that can threaten him to break up with XN.  I think probably her family. Will see next week.  Anyway, I think he starts being mean and cold hearted to her next episode to keep her safe for now until he figures out how to deal with the fiancé and his parents.

@LyeKIM  Yes, the child from the spoiler is from their current relationship and I believe what happened 3 years ago is all out in the open.  Now the craziness is how they will stay together.  I can't wait until the next episode.  I set my alarm on at 1:30 am every Friday night so I can watch the new episode before it gets taken off of youtube, This is the first time I have actually followed a drama like this.  Normally I hibernate a few months and then check out what dramas are out and complete before watching it.  I couldn't do it for this drama...:astonished:

@miaka27 Don't bother with Youtube. People are uploading really crappy quality vids on there so they don't get banned as quickly. Just go to Maplestage. I don't speak a lick of Chinese but that's where I go to watch raws and there is enough English on there for anyone to get by. Message me if you need help finding it and I'll give a direct link to all five eps.

I Love My President Ep 5 Recap (1)

Quite a lot takes place in this episode. Apparently there’s very little rest for the OTP. Crazy families who will do anything to keep them apart is at the top of the list. External and internal factors rear their heads in an attempt to keep them apart. Mrs Gong comes to stay for a stint and does her worst. Her manipulations lead to some trying moments for XN.

 

Spoiler

 

The episode begins with XN searching online for information but there’s nothing that deals with her exceptional situation. She then attempts a different approach. “Social etiquette practised by prominent families” XN tells herself the she needs to be lofty and elegant. XN wonders whether such days are at the beginning or end.

 

Mummy Dearest arrives in her manner befitting her stature. She greets Gong’ou and notes that he’s become more handsome after a time of not seeing him. Then she frowns and says that he doesn’t look too good. FD comments that the young master hasn’t been well lately. Then she makes a pointed response about the normally trusty FD allowing a whole lot of things to happen… with particular reference to GO publicly announcing who his lover is. She wonders why FD didn’t prevent it from happening which is causing her and GO’s father to question if FD is capable of being the family butler. GO gathers that his mother’s return on this occasion is to deal with this situation. She openly declares her motives and says that her son has accepted such an adorable lover so as the mother she has to come and meet her. FD urges them to head inside.

 

XN is learning how to make tea properly but the taste falls short of how the family usually does it. GO comes in, grabs her tea cup and drinks it. He compliments XN on the taste and says it’s a worthy effort. She then asks him how his conversation with Aunty went. He takes another sip and tells her that Mother wants to talk to her alone. 

 

XN paces outside the room and we get a flashback to a conversation between GO and XN. “There’s something I need to say to you.” GO tells her not to be intimidated. He understands what his mother’s like. He tells her that whatever happens later that she not be intimidated. This is the first time he’s announced publicly about a girlfriend, he doesn’t know what means his mother will use to deal with XN. He has gone against the family for her sake so he asks her to trust him, not wanting XN to be intimidated no matter what takes place. Then he says, “What the heck… I’ll go in with you.” XN stops him from saying anything further and tells him she trusts him. She gives him a peck and says she’s hungry and would love some omurice (I think). 

 

XN gets FD to announce her entry as she goes to greet Mother who is sipping a glass of red. XN calls her Aunty. Mother isn’t impressed and picks her up on it. She doesn’t think it’s at all appropriate that XN call her “Aunty”. Instead she tells XN to call her “Madam” like FD and everyone else in the house does. Mother Madam tells her that she doesn’t need to feel ill at ease because all those around her are elegant, open-minded, noble ladies from distinguished families. No matter how much XN tries, she will never learn. (A remark I imagine, calculated to make XN feel her place) So Madam Mother tells XN she’s better off feeling relaxed to be herself.

 

Then Mother says, “Miss Shi, it’s regrettable that we meet for the first time today and I’m rather disappointed. Even though I’ve done a background investigation on your family, I was in anticipation wondering what kind of girl would cause that arrogant, cold son of mine to take a second look. She must have her unique, outstanding quality. But now I’ve seen Miss Shi, I’m a little disappointed.” 

XN’s response is great. “I would also like to know what it is that Gong’ou sees so highly in me. If I can get an answer from Madam, I will be beyond grateful.”

Mother says…”I finally realised that it's your mouth. But let me tell you, that mouth of yours doesn’t work on me. Miss Shi, don’t you think that Gong’ou has acted excessively for your sake? He’s given his father such a scare. If I hadn’t intervened, would you have been able to speak to me calmly and in one piece. I’ve said so much to you and I don’t want to waste everybody’s time.” Mother pulls out a folder and says that it contains all the criteria and qualifications for Gong’ou’s future wife. She thinks XN needs to take a look. 

The folder is handed to XN who proceeds to browse its content. The first candidate is of the Lancaster (I think) family, a very low-profile prominent family. They don’t broadcast the extent of their assets but apparently they’re even richer and more generous. Mona Lancaster is the heiress of this family. Mother tells XN that she should have the intelligence to understand what she’s saying. But XN says she still wants to try. She knows that an ordinary girl like her is rather small when standing in front of the two families. She can’t be compared to those rich, prominent young ladies. She doesn’t have their family background, education, breeding but she has something they don’t. She reminds Madam about the state of GO’s mental health. She’s able to make him happy and probably help him to recover (I think). XN promises to work hard.

Mother commends her on a fine speech and for having so much confidence to say such things but insists that it’s dependant on GO’s love for her.

FD comes into the room and announces that the young master wants to let them know that the omurice is ready. Mother is stunned. XN informs her that GO made it and tells FD that they will be there shortly. XN asks to be given an opportunity to be worthy of GO. Mother is none too pleased but says, “Let’s wait and see."

I Love My President Ep. 5 Recap (Part 2)

I'm out for at least a couple of hours but will continue when I return... Meanwhile...

Spoiler

 

Back in her room, XN wonders what kind of difficult task will Madam give her tomorrow. GO throws a towel at her and asks her what she’s thinking. He asks if she’s unable to sleep or if she’s thinking about Qian Chu. XN says that as long as there’s no news of QC, she can’t be at ease. Then she changes the subject and talks about meeting GO’s mum for the first time was like taking some kind of college entrance exam.

GO says he called her out in timely fashion so why would she be afraid. He’s obviously never sat for an entrance exam because he wonders if it’s difficult. XN tells him that kids that grow up overseas have no experience of this. Entrance exams are an unforgettable memory for kids nationwide. XN talks about the year she sat for the entrance exam. She was afraid of studying the wrong things and GO accuses her of being such a nervous wreck. She’s not only nervous about getting on stage, nervous about entrance exams and even more nervous about meeting family. She says only a narcissist like him doesn't get nervous. He grabs her and says that he’s going to help her calm her nerves.

They wander around the forest. XN says it’s getting late and they should go back. She’s not even sure why he brought her to this place, there are no stars to be seen. He tells her just to follow him. She tells him to slow down.

He brings her to the place where she was stranded earlier. When he took her back, he later instructed that the tree in the surrounding area be cut down. XN asks him why he’s even picking fights with trees. He says it’s their fault for keeping her stranded there. He says he only brought her there because he saw she didn’t look too happy. But if he hadn’t had the trees chopped down, would she be able to enjoy such a beautiful view. XN admires the view. And then XN notices that there are fireflies around. 

GO asks her if she finds it all very pretty. She nods happily. He then remarks that XN is more beautiful. In a voice affecting surprise he says to her “Why is it that the more I look at you, the better looking you are? Even your hairstyle is so beautiful.” XN says everything looks good to him because he is pleased with what he sees. Then he goes into ego mode and says that of course a woman that he’s fallen for would become better looking.

(This part is a little hard to translate because there is a play on words here. The word “kan” means to see. But GO says “kan shang” which literally means "look upwards" but is really the equivalent of “taken a fancy to” in English. Things are sadly lost in translation)

XN kisses GO and thanks him for bringing her to such a beautiful place. She thanks him for making the effort to make her happy. She thanks him for being so sure of her. So she will do her best for him. He leans over to kiss her and then says that he doesn’t want to taste her gratitude.

Madam Mother gives XN three months to see what she’s got to become worthy of GO. She sets her the task of learning foreign languages with 2 teachers. English, French, German, Spanish, Russian and Italian. XN hits the books till late in the night.

After their foreheads collide, GO complains that she’s working too hard. XN said she must have fallen asleep that day while studying but GO tells her that she actually fainted. He said luckily he came home earlier otherwise she would have studied herself to death. She placates him by urging him not to get angry as she won’t do it again. He tells her that to be his woman he doesn’t need dishonest tactics and chaos.

FD announces that Madam wants to see XN.  GO forbids it but XN thinks that if Madam wants her to go, she should. GO tries to stop her by noting that Mummy has been trying to break her.  XN doesn’t think it’s Madam Mummy’s fault because she (XN) is too dumb. GO forbids her from going saying that she is already so dumb and if she were too study more, she would be even more stupid. He tells her that he has plenty of money so she can just stay at home, read comic books, and eat good food. XN, however, insists on going. GO carries her off to the seaside.

FD informs Madam that the young master and Miss Shi have gone to the beach. The Madam knows that GO doesn’t want XN to see her so he’s taken her out. FD denies it and says that GO took XN for a bit of break and he got there a little late. The Madam tells FD not to cover for them. She knows her own son, what he’s temperament is like. However, she concedes that she’s discovered that XN has got some strengths. She’s not afraid of hardship, willing to work hard. Most importantly, she’s able to control GO’s temper. If she’s willing to obediently stay by GO’s side and be a passive lover, she will have nothing to say. But she wants XN to know the difficulties and retreat. She should consider that with her family background, wanting to walk in through the door of the Gong family, whether Old Master/Daddy Gong would agree to it. Madam poses a question to FD… if Daddy Gong were to deal with this situation would XN be able to stay here untouched. 

When she dismisses FD she notes that when a person gets older they become soft-hearted.

“Shi XN, don’t blame me. If there’s something to blame, blame yourself for coveting something that doesn’t belong to you."

I Love My President Ep. 5 (Part 3): Kidnapping and aftermath

Spoiler

 

XN is kidnapped by the very nutty SD who is completely off her rocker. 

SD saunters in and surmises that XN did not expect that they would be meeting again under such circumstances. XN asks her if she realises that she's engaging in kidnapping which is apparently still illegal in China. The illegality doesn't seem to deter SD because no matter how much XN calls out, no one will hear her in that remote location. Delusional, SD rages on about XN being a troublemaker that brings harm to people and rejoices that XN has now fallen into her hands. 

XN is in disbelief that SD still believes that she (XN) is the one who brought harm to her (SD). SD insists that now that XN has now climbed high, she's brought disaster upon her family. Her father is now bankrupt and drinks daily, beating up her mother when he's drunk. As for SD, she used to be a female celebrity (I think) in the commercial world but because of XN, GO chased her out of film circles which in effect killed her. In SD's mind XN is to blame for destroying her everything. The films that she loved, her career... everything.  

XN asks if SD has done all this because of money, if so she will ask GO to give her some. She won't let him create problems for them in future and demands to be released. 

SD calls XN her naive big sister. Did XN really think this was the real reason for kidnapping her? From young, SD lost in one area to XN -- a person. A lifelong defeat. She claims that she liked Qian Chu first. Before he arrived at their home, she had already liked him. She thought of that blind young master who was really gorgeous. If he had wanted to play with her, she would have played with him. The day that it snowed, she had gone too but she was one step behind. She could only stand and watch XN drag him away. From that day onwards QC would only play with XN. SD can't understand why XN was weaker in every aspect except for the matter regarding QC. XN would forever be one step ahead in that regard.

XN tells SD thinks she's right in everything. If SD claims to love QC, then why did she feed him harmful things? SD insists she didn't do it willingly, she just didn't want QC to think of XN who only thought of him as a play mate and thief who didn't love him. He was a fool. SD believes that QC only has her in his heart. 

XN calls it: SD is mad, bonkers, insane, nuts... certifiable. Well, SD doesn't disagree but she think she's better than a murderer like XN. She blames XN for bringing harm to QC. SD goes on a tirade about XN destroying her career, family, marriage blah blah... XN should be glad she hasn't throttled her to death yet.

SD sends in XN's would-be-assailants. She tells them to "take good care" of her big sister.

In the voice-over for the next scene XN muses about her life and how she's gone through so much pain and hardship... the stuff of storybooks. If it's a dream, can she experience the pain and wake up from it? Why is it so painful yet she can't wake up?

XN screams out, FD and GO run to her room. FD asks what he should do about Madam. GO wants her sent back to England. He doesn't want to ever see her again. GO is glad to see that XN is awake. After propping her up he offers her a drink of water. She chokes and he asks her to be more careful. XN insists that she really hasn't been violated but GO doesn't believe it because he says he doesn't care if she has been. He promises to deal with every person who has bullied her. She insists one more time she hasn't been. He tells her that he loves her and doesn't care about these things. 

Mummy Dearest has a flashback of an altercation with GO. He probably smashed her wine glass. (Has anyone else noticed that this woman drinks a little too much? Probably not a happy lady despite all the wealth and bragging about being an elite) She yells that XN is no longer qualified to be his wife, much less the daughter-in-law of the Gong household. She can't understand why GO is lashing out at her. She is his mother after all. GO smashes another wine glass against the floor. He has set his mind on XN for the rest of his life. Whatever kind of person she is, he's holding on to her. Even if Mummy were to send people to cut her into a pile of bones, he would spend the rest of his life embracing this pile of bones. GO storms out of the room.

Later Madam and XN have a little chat. XN knows that it was Mummy Dearest who lent those men to SD. She knows that SD would not have let her off so lightly. Those people only left behind traces of violation but they didn't actually violate her. XN knows that was Mummy's handiwork. Madam admits to it. A woman of her status would not treat a woman like her this way. She only wanted XN to know her place and back off. XN wonders if Madam's not afraid that GO would find out his own mother personally sent people to mistreat his lover.

Madam says she should have realised from the start that GO doesn't know of her involvement (I think). The hotel belongs to the Gong family but she never realised that GO could tolerate a woman who has been violated, speak to her with such vehemence and send her back to England. XN says she wasn't violated. On this matter, Mummy doesn't think anyone would believe her. Even if everyone else believes her as along as GO has the slightest suspicion, it will take root and sprout.  Mummy tells her not to be too smug. All men have their innate weaknesses. As much as he likes or loves, there is already a blemish (I think) no more perfection. He will gradually detest and dislike. How long will GO tolerate XN for?

XN is ready for GO to abandon her. Mum releases a slight chuckle. She appreciates XN's determination and stubbornness, respects her even. But from her experience, she claims, those things are useless.

XN watches from the top floor as Mummy Dearest leaves the building. GO emerges (Love the piano here) and asks her where she was running off to. And demands to know who gave her permission to do so. They embrace. He thought she had disappeared again and was afraid that she had. 

They cling ever more tightly to each other.
