Okay, when I heard that Love Around was extended to 20 eps my heart mood immediately plummeted. I was so excited that this drama was going to end soon but hearing that news shortened my happiness. I guess I was the only one having this reaction because a lot of netizens were going ballistic hearing of this news. Seriously, those people must be living in another planet to think that this drama is worth an extension. No kidding. This drama is crap but there are actually people out there who think it is good. What is on the mind of these people!? How can they think that this drama is good in the slightest sense? I guess everyone has their opinions or maybe I just don’t see the goodness from this drama?
I guess many of you must be wondering why I continue to watch and recap this drama when I feel this way. Well, once I start a drama I must finish it. I just have to or else it would feel incomplete for me. Since I saw the opening of it, I must see how it all concludes.
I was really busy this week so this recap will be shorter than usual. Needless to say, this ep was well and truly under standard. Again, it was bland and boring. It is just a repeat of what has already happened in previous eps. Actually, each ep is a repeat of each other. This drama has lost all thoughts of creativity, resulting to the same tactics over and over again.
Xiao Shu senses that there is something bothering Zhou Zhen to make him feel unhappy. He tells her that he is okay.
Zhou Zhen thinks about the journey that he has been on with Xiao Shu. Daddy Zhou has a talk with him to sort out his relationship woos. Zhou Zhen blames himself for causing Xiao Shu her pain. His father tells him otherwise but he counters that it is his fault if he chooses to continue dating her. So he decides that it will be better if he pushes her away.
Ying Ying coincidentally bumps into Zhe Xuan while he is on his run. She leads him to meet a fortune teller who she bribed to give a fake reading. The fortune teller tells them that Zhe Xuan is Ying Ying’s Mr. Right. Zhe Xuan doesn’t believe this and lets Ying Ying know that he has someone else in his heart.
There is a new employee at the station, Qian Pei Ni (Qian Bai Yu).
Zhou Zhen gets a call letting him know that Dr. Chen is at Japan. He books a ticket to fly over there.
Xiao Shu invites Zhou Zhen to go seafood shopping with her. As they leave the seafood market, she spots that his vest has ripped. She sews it up while he goes to buy drinks. He returns and is touched seeing her sew patch up his best. They go for lunch. She apologises for having neglected him. She gets up on stage and dedicates the song I Love You by Elleya Tao to him. He watches her performance emotionally.
Mummy Liang spends her birthday with her family and Zhe Xuan. Xiao Shu comments on how Zhou Zhen seems to be hiding something from her. Mummy Liang tells her to deliver some soup to Zhou Zhen tomorrow.
Zhou Zhen can’t bear it to break up with Xiao Shu.
Zhe Xuan advises Xiao Shu to give Zhou Zhen some time.
Turns out that Pei Ni is Zhou Zhen’s friend and that was under his direction for Pei Ni to work at the station. She questions why he wants her to work at the station. He tells her that the station is lacking a capable business member.
Xiao Shu goes to deliver Zhou Zhen her mother’s soup. However, she spots Zhou Zhen sending a girl off. She follows him to the airport and confronts him about it. He tells her that the girl she saw was his ex-girlfriend and they have decided to get back together. He takes this opportunity to break up with her. She cries and he cries.
My opinion is still same week after week and you should probably all know how I feel about it by now. Boooooooooooorrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrriiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiinnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnngggggggggggggggggggggggggggg. *Yawns*
Seriously just Zhou Zhen and Xiao Shu needs to either break-up or stay together! Stop dragging the drama on already! I have had enough of watching them settle in this jelly-like stage. It either needs to collapse of solidify. I can’t even feel anything for this couple except for frustration, and it is not even frustration watching them stepping over boundaries to get together but it my own frustation for having to deal with watching this couple. Urghhh!
The best thing that came out of this ep was hearing George Hu speaking English. I always get excited hearing foreign actors speak English, and I have no idea why. He has perfect English, not that I expected anything less from him considering he was raised in the States.
This drama would be off ending at 15 eps, but no, it has to get extended not one or two eps but five whole eps. That’s five extra eps of dragginess!
