Episode 1 (unsubbed)
I watched this episode still unsubbed in English so did not understand a word. It is in Chinese and subbed in Vietnamese. 🙂
Anyway as soon as I saw Song Yi Ren with Yan YuHao, I had a eureka moment that I could be looking at Sang Sang and her new Ning Que,
Yan YuHao had the height and that cruelty/arrogance/bravado that Chen Feiyu has playing as Ning Que.
Anyway just looking at at the moving pictures, I understand that Lin Liu is a very perky girl, who seems to be a bit of a ‘Jill of all trades’.
She is an assistant to her vlogger friend, she works as a waitress as well as a make up artist.
The drama started with Shi Liansen reminiscing his past relationship with Lin Liu. They had so much fun together. She brought out the child in him. She was a joy. But for some reasons, they separated and she was left collapsed in the rain.
They first become aware of each other when Lin Liu was on her way to a photoshoot as a make up artist. She carelessly left her scooter by the road when she got off to buy/get something.
Shi Liansen was just passing in his car and ran over her scooter and did not bother to stop.
She got to the building for the photoshoot. It was a plush building with a beautiful lobby. She was so excited and took selfies. There was a passing tall young man. In her excitement, she asked him to take her photo full length using her phone.
Though he took her phone, he did not bother taking her photo.
She went with him on the lift to the upper floors.. She was to do the make up for the photo shoot. After the model finished, Lin Liu jumped into the set and started posing for her own selfie. The model instructed the photographer to take photos of the unaware Lin Liu.
Shi Liansen met someone by the sea/beach. He climbed into a rock and enjoying the negative ions, peace and quiet until it was broken by someone chattering nine to the dozen.
Shi Liansen went to see who the noisy girl was and of course, it was Lin Liu who slipped from the rock straight to his arms.
They are trending. While Lin Liu was in his arms after slipping from the rock. unbeknown to them someone took their photo and posted it online.
Lin Liu begins working as a sales assistant in a beauty products store owned by Shi Lianshen. She also ended up as a product endorser as Shi Lianshen like the photos taken of her during the photoshoot. She looks young and fresh just perfect of their Cinderella range.
While arranging the beauty products on the bottom shelf in the shop, Lin Liu took off her shoes. Then walked in Shi Lianshen who told her to put her shoes on. While getting into her high heel she fell ,,, into his arms again!
Due to the lack of subtitles, I am not really sure why Lin Liu is in need of so much money. She has been working non-stop, doing every job available including working in a bar in a rather skimpy dress.
There is someone stalking her and taking her photographs when she was in a rather comprising situation.
Shi Lianshen saw the photos and was very annoyed. He asked her what she would she want to work in a bar. She told him she needed to work for the money.
Lin Liu went back to the bar and this time the customers are more persistent and then it was going to get ugly but right at that moment Shi Lianshen turned up and scooped her in arms and took her away.
Shi Lianshen had some contracts prepared. For 500,000 Yuan (about £58K or $72K) he asked Lin Liu to be his fake girlfriend.
Lin Liu was ecstatic until…
In front of everybody, Shi Lianshen kissed the very surprised Lin Liu. Not everyone was happy for them.
Including his dad who asked to see Lin Liu.
Lin Liu has such an outgoing personality that she did not give the father much time to talk. She told him stories after stories for three solid hours.
Thank goodness Shi Lianshen turned up to rescue his father from the onslaught of Lin Liu’s sunny personality.
Shi Lianshen ended up in a club dancing and drinking. Lin Liu got drunk, got sicked on Lianshen’s shirt then passed out.
She woke up the next morning seeing a very handsome Lianshen in his bathrobe. Cute.
The reason why Lin Liu needed the money was to pay the massive bill accrued from her young brother’s continued hospitalisation.
Fang Qiao has a one-sided love with Shi Lianshen. With a bottle of red wine, she went to his house and proceeded to down the whole bottle herself. She then took off her dress intending to seduce Lianshen, who was not interested. He called Lin Liu to help him out and Zichen, who has a one-sided love with Fang Qiao, to collect Fang.
I am not sure about this but I think Lianshen is asking Lin Liu to move in with him.
Yeah, I guessed right. LOL
Lin Liu moved in with Lianshen.
To make him regret his commanding decision to have her moved in, Lin Liu did everything to annoy Lianshen.
In no time, she messed up the place. With her hyperactivity, I have to say we saw more than what we are supposed to be seeing. I can say that young YiRen doesn’t go for the Brazilan. LOL
Anyway, Lianshen told her to have a bath as she smells.
While bathing she had an accident when she was reaching for the shampoo and bang her head against the bath, fortunately, Lianshen was there to help her but she screamed her head off upon seeing him seeing her naked in the bath.
He was about to leave when Lin Liu looked like about to slip in the bath once again.
Lianshen was able to hold on to her but in doing so fell on the bath himself on top of her.
Lin Liu cleaned up the house including Lianshen’s bedroom. She put his beloved Teddy in the wash which upset Lianshen as it has that definitive smell of memories from his mother.
To make up for her faux pas, she bought him another teddy as a companion for his other one. But for some reason, he was allergic to the other teddy.
Lianshen has desperate need to go to sleep but can’t. He found out that he can if he has Lin Liu in bed with him.
Fang Qiao is not giving up easily on Lianshen. As a drastic measure, she is turning herself into a clone of LIn Liu. She copied Lin Liu’s hairstyle as well as how she dresses.
Still Lianshen is not interested.
Lin Liu continues to create havoc in Lianshen’s life but he only finds her more interesting.
Lin Liu is the Cinderella beauty products poster girl. A customer came to the store who complained about the product she bought from the Cinderella range which gave her skin allergies. She removed her mask showing inflamed cheeks.
She harrassed poor Lin Liu and she was about to pour a glass of tea on Lin Liu when Lianshen appeared to take the drenching himself.
The issue regarding the beauty products turned bigger than it should have been. There were rival company which might be involved in the negative publicity.
Anyway, because Lianshen had to stay at the office until matters are solved, Lin Liu brought him sandwiches.
She fell asleep on the company settee and seeing this Lianshen covered her with his favourite maroon jacket and was going to kiss her unconscious face.
What he doesn’t know was that Fang Qiao saw everything and finally realised that if the relationship was fake to start with, then it was no longer a pretend one. Lianshen had really fallen for Lin Liu.
Fang Qiao was overwrought but finally decided to let Lianshen go and arrange to meet him to tell him so.
Lin Liu’s task was to contact clients who bought the beauty products before and try to entice them back. But no was willing.
She was deep in her thoughts while she was crossing the road; she almost got run over if not for Lianshen who pulled her back.
Hearts, hearts everywhere.
Their first flush of being in love did not last long.
Lianshen was with Fang, her parents and his father in a restaurant, which looks a prenuptial meeting between parents.
At the same restaurant, Lin Liu was also there with her former flatmate, Liang Zhi, who has a crush on her.
Laing Zhi engineered that Lin Liu sees Lianshen with Fang Qiao and that their relationship is serious.
Lin Liu was very upset, she runs off.
Lianshen was annoyed that Lin Liu was annoyed so he called up LiangZhi, who is a manager in his beauty store and fired him.
When Lin Liu is annoyed she becomes unreasonable. She said she wanted to move out.
Though Lianshen is reluctant to let her go, he had to agree to it.
Meanwhile, Liang Zhi went to the rival firm and got himself employed, He might actually be related to the boss. Awww subtitles where are you?!!!
Despite living in separate abodes, they seem to bump to each other all the time.
Lianshen conspired with Lin Liu’s young brother to pretend that he was in the hospital ill.
Lin Liu wasted no time to go to the hospital only to find that Lianshen is well.
Lin Liu and Lianshen’s father had a cute bonding. He found her rather uncouth but rather sweet with it. Lin Liu kept trying to get away but he complains of illness.
Lianshen then turned up and took her to a photo shoot of them looking lovey-dovey couple, which he thoroughly enjoyed.
They ended up sleeping in the same bed together and it was so cute/
Lianshen has really fallen for Lin Liu to the point of being on the obsessive side. He watches all the time and even follows her which was rather fortunate as Lin Liu was almost assaulted in the park when she was meandering there with her pink suitcase.
