Quick Precis:

After a plane turbulence, Shi Jian woke up ten years back in time.

As a resourceful girl, she endevours to meet her future husband, Jia Cheng, ahead of time.

She also rights some wrongs in her past.

One big surprise, she realises that her hunky boss, Yi Pei, had been in love with her.

Hey when are going to have an English subtitle.

This drama is so interesting.  It raises a lot of questions about how you would feel if your husband in the present time actually took his time to fancy you in the past.

It was excruciating to see him so gentle and caring with another woman, his then girlfriend.

Poor Shi Jian turned into a stalker.  Following her ‘husband’ and even befriending his girlfriend to be near him.

There are times when it was absolutely excruciating to watch her put herself there and be utterly degraded.

Stop.

There was also a very poignant scene where she realised that ten years ago, her mother was still alive.  When she learned this she rushed from university to strangle her mother with the tightest and longing hug.  That was lovely and her mother looks so kind.  This scene reminded me of Kdrama’s Go Back Couple.

I am now on episode 11, not truly understanding what is really going on but one thing I noticed was the sexy chemistry Tang Yan has with the second male lead, Yi Pei.

Her chemistry with her future husband is not bad either but Yi Peif is sexily appealing with his muscly body almost bursting from his tight white long sleeves.  Gorgeous!  🙂

Anyway, Shi Jian was trying on a wedding gown for some reason and Jia Cheng turned up.  Again, Shi Jian can’t help flirting with him through eye to eye contact but Song Xiao Jing, the girlfriend turned up and whisked  Jia Cheng away.

Shi Jian was so upset she went drinking.  She got drunk and called Yi Pei who turned up to almost pick her up off the street.

She woke up in his bed and his pajamas.  He then started posing (more, more) against a pillar with a glass of orange juice and the sexiest come-hither look.

Forget Jia Cheng just have it off with the gorgeous Yi Pei in this lifetime.  LOL

14 Sept 2019 Update:  First two episodes have been update!

Episode 1

2016

Shi Jian was blissfully waiting to be reunited with her husband Jia Cheng in Santiago, Chile. They started a business together when they got married.

Shi Jian was especially excited because she wanted to surprise Jia Cheng of her news that they were going to have a baby,

At the airport lounge, Shi Jian spoke again with Jia Cheng who can’t wait to see her.

Yi Pei happened to notice her asked if she doesn’t mind if he sits and chats with her for a while. Yi Pei is the president of EMOC who Jia Cheng had contact previously.

Yi Pei and Shi Jian were seatmates at the First/Business Class.  Yi Pei likes Shi Jian cheerfulness.

Shi Jian fell asleep but woken up by the sudden turbulence of the flight.

Yi Pei ensured that her seatbelt was correct and proper.

The turbulence got worse and luggage from the overhead compartments started to fall.

Ji Pei saw a sharp object/pole aiming where Shi Jian was seating.  He stood up and cover her with his body.

Shi Jian was in a coma.  Jia Cheng was worried sick about her as she won’t wake up.

But she did wake up in another timeline.

2006

Shi Jian was all confused when she woke up.  She did not know where she was until one her dormmate told her that she was in university.

She later found out that it was 2006 and she was 21 years old.

She could not believe what was happening so she jumped into the school pond and were rescued by good samaritans.

Shi Jian was worried about Ji Pei so she went to EMOC to speak with him. But he just looked at her blankly and his assistant said she was some weirdo and to stop bothering Ji Pei.

She also found out that her mother was still alive.  She died later of that year of Terminal breast cancer.

Upon hearing that her mother was alive, she raced home to be with her.  She hugged her tightly.  Her mother said that Shi Jian was being weird.  They just saw each other last weekend.

Anyway, she did not want to frighten her mother but Shi Jian convinced her to get a check-up with her the next day.

Shi Jian also found out that she still has a boyfriend at that time. He was Cheng Ji.

He was working with Yi Qindong, the uncle of Yi Pei.

Yi Qindong will use Cheng Ji for fraudulent activity.  Cheng Ji will end up in prison for ten years.

Shi Jian did warn him about the project with Yi Qindong was he was turning violent when she spoke to him about it.

Now she wanted to see Jia Cheng but she does not know where to find him.

Episode 2

Shi Jian found out that Jia Cheng in this timeline was still dating Song Xiao Jing.  So she reckoned that to find where Jia Cheng she needs to know where Song Xiao JIng was.

Shi Jian found her and started stalking her.

Song Xiao Jing noticed and had a word with Shi Xiao about it.  She told Shi Xiao to stop following her.

Episode 3

Shi Jian waited for her boyfriend to get out of his apartment.  She then went to his place and searched for materials regarding the project he was working on with the conniving Qingdong.

She found a memory card reader which details the Grand City project.

She copied the information and decided to give it to Ji Pei because she reckoned that he can help Chang Jian not to end up in prison.

Shi Jian had become rather friendly with her future husband’s current girlfriend, Song Xiao Jing.  The later promised her an internship into her company.

Finally, she met Jia Cheng in the bookshop.  She was saddened that he was not really interested in her at all.  No memory of her whatsoever.  She was also a little upset that he was very attentive with Xiao Jing.

Shi Jian’s roommate told her either to pursue her future husband or just forget about him for now and let nature takes its course.

Meanwhile, Yi Pei is beginning to be fascinated with her as her information seemed a step ahead of what was happening.

She even foretold that the Grand City project will be disastrous at first.

He asked to meet her and asked why she was ‘helping’ him?  What is it for her?

She said that she did not want anything for herself but she would appreciate for Yi Fei to help Chang Jian not to end up in prison.

Shi JIan met up with Chang Jian and confessed to him what she did that she copied everything from his computer and gave the information fo Yi Fei.

She then told him to go to Yi Fei as he can help him.

Chang Jiani did not appreciate what Shi JIan did so he slapped her hard which was seen by Yi Fei and his assistant who was watching from his car just outside the restaurant.

The initial test result for her mother’s physical came out clear.  But Shi Jian tried to convince her mother to get further tests.

Episode 4

OMG Yang Shuo is too damn sexy.  His every pore is oozing sex appeal.  LOL

Anyway, the chairman of EMAO was upset with what happened with the Grand City Project.

His son, Qingdong denied knowing anything about it.  The Chairman only got more annoyed because Qingdong is the president of the company, how can he not know about a big project.

Shi Jian was absolutely shameless which was making Jia Cheng uncomfortable.  She was stalking him.

She was there giving him a ticket for the Roman Holiday movie but he turned her down.

She was there bringing him a chocolate cake, he told her that he doesn’t like sweet food.

He was rebuffing her at every turn and told her that he has a girlfriend.

One good thing for her was that her mother agreed to undergo more tests.

And another thing, Yi Fei made good of his promise.  He had a talk with Chang Jian about working with Qingdong.  He warned him that the last assistant of Qingdong was currently serving 10 years in prison for doing all the underhanded dealings for Qingdong.

Episode 5

Chang Jian went back to the office but found that his things are being boxed as he had been fired.

He went immediately to Qingdong to inquire about his dismissal.  For good measure, he turned on the voice recorder on his mobile phone.

Qingdong told him that Chang Jian was being investigated for fraud.  The investigators have found a million yen(?) had been deposited in his account.

Chang Jian said that Qingdong gave him the money himself as a bonus.

Qingdong said that Chang JIan should not put the blame on him.

Chang Jian did manage to get a rather incriminating confession from Qingdong which reached the Chairman as Chang Jian gave a copy of the recording to Yi Pei, who passed it on the Chairman.

The Chairman was so annoyed with his son who seemed to have gone back to his old ways.

Shi Jian found out that her mother has an early-stage breast cancer from the doctor.  She did not know how to go about telling her mother.  It so happened that Jia Cheng called to thank her for the chocolate which he actually enjoyed.

Jia Cheng adviced her to be straightforward with her mother.

Jia Cheng had been having a problem with his girlfriend, who was very controlling and spoilt.

Episode 6

It also did not help that Shi Jian was always around Jia Cheng like that morning when they were found together by a suspicious Xiao Jing, who realised that Shi Jian purposely got closer to her so she could snatch Jia Cheng away.

Xiao Jing was right though.

Seriously even if Jia Cheng is her husband in the future, it was not right to take him away from his girlfriend in an earlier timeline.

Shi Jian’s mother tried to commit suicide when she found out that might be a burden to her young daughter who was looking for a job rather than taking her exams to be able to graduate.

Thank goodness, Yi Pei was there to support Shi Jian after they had taken Chang Jian to the police station to surrender.

Shi Jian asked Yi Pei for a job.

And it seemed it was such a small world as Yi Pei was meeting Xiao Jing and Jiacheng for dinner.  Yi Pei wanted to collaborate with Jiacheng to design the Grand City, which has been given to him by the chairman to manage.

The Chairman took the project away from Qingdong because the later had gone back to his old vice of gambling.

Episode 7

Despite Qiao Qiao telling ShiJian that she would give way if she gets the internship with EMAO in favour of Shi Jian, who needed it more, Qiao Qiao got upset when Shi Jian got the position herself through Yi Pei.

Anyway, Jia Cheng arranged a hospital bed for Shi Jian’s mother through his friend Gao Zhifeng.

To thank them, Shi Jian treated them to a meal.  But Xiao Jing called Jia Cheng to say she needed help because she might have broken her leg when she fell in the bath.

Jia Cheng immediately moved to go to his girlfriend but Shi Jian volunteered to drive him as he had been drinking.

When then got then, Xiao Jing went mental and accused both Jia Cheng and Shi Jian of an inappropriate relationship.

Shi Jian had had enough of Xiao Jing’s rather understandable accusation so she told her that she should not be disrespecting Jiacheng who is kind, hardworking and honest and anyway he was her husband first.

Jia Cheng and Xiao Jing both looked at her as if she was a deranged stalker. 🙁

Jia Cheng took the car key from her and warned her never to come near him again.  He doesn’t want to see her again.

Episode 8

Shi Jian’s mother had a successful operation.

She is still obsessing with Jia Cheng but she can see that she means nothing to him.

She was also obsessing with Qiao Qiao’s love life.  she forced Qiao Qiao to break up with her boyfriend she met through the internet.  She told Qiao Qiao that he was going to break her heart in the future.

It was the new year.  She celebrated it with her mother.

Jia Cheng took Xiao Jing to meet his parents.  Xiao Jing was not a hit with his parents but they were stoic about her.  It was their son who will have to marry and live with Xiao Jing so he has to make the decision.

Episode 9

It was Shi Jian first day work.  She was told of the three things that she must abide by working for Yi Pei.  First, don’t ask a question you shouldn’t ask.  Second, don’t listen to the conversation you shouldn’t listen.  And third, don’t be curious about the situation you shouldn’t be curious about. And bonus advice: maintain moderate stupidity.

Shi Jian had a happy shocked when she ended in Jia Cheng arm’s when she collided him in the corridor.

She did not know that he works with Yi Pei.

Yi Pei saw them looking at each other and knew that Shi Jian has a massive crush with Jia Cheng.

It so happened that Wenwen, Yi Pei’s fiancee had come back to China.

They have a mutual understanding that they do not want to tie the knot yet as Yi Pei is busy at work while Wenwen is not through playing with boys yet.

But Wenwen likes someone to act as an assistant so Yi Pei used being able to work with Jia Cheng to convince Shi Jian to assist Wenwen.

Wenwen is a carefree soul as Shi Jian had found out.  She remembered in the future that she had a conversation with Qiao Qiao about Wenwen, who will die from a fall while skiing.

Wenwen exhibit signs of early pregnancy.

Episode 10

Poor Shi Jian was in bits.  She was so upset to have been brought back in time with her memory intact and seeing that she was someone affecting what is happening.

She noticed that the necklace given to her by her mother in law is being worn by Xiao Jing.  And she heard that they were planning a wedding.

Jia Cheng was beginning to think that it might not be happily ever after with Xian Ling who was turning into a shrew more and more.  He was busy with that major project with EMAO but all Xian Ling could think of was that Shi Jian was there destructing him.

Xiao Jing’s wildness was driving him mad that he was even surprised at himself for thinking of Shi Jian as more suited to his temperament and way of thinking.

Wenwen had made Shi Jian that what she sees Wenwen does should stay between them.

Qingdong was baiting Yi Pei.  He told Yi Pei that he heard Wenwen had had a licentious time in England.

This made Yi Pei think and instructed Shi Jian to report everything Wenwen does from now on.

Shi Jian complained but Yi Pei told her off.

Episode 11

Yang Shuo is seriously gorgeous.

Shi JIan was feeling like holding a blade she was being forced to stab herself.  She does not know who should be loyal with. Yi Pei or Wenwen.

Anyway she had been looking for Li Hengli, who seemed to have a connection with Wenwen.  When she finally found him he was going under the name of Li Da Tran and looks like he was a father already.

Xiao Jing new tactic was to befriend Shi Jian so she won’t steal the boyfriend or husband of your friend.

More or less Shi Jian was finally resolved that Xiao Jing was marrying Jia Cheng.

Xiao Jing was trying on wedding dresses when she called Shi Jian to ask for her opinion.  She saw that Jia Cheng really was sweet on Xiao Jing.  But Xiao Jing seemed to want to rub salt into her injury because she put Shi Jian on the spot by asking her to be her bridesmaid.

Shi Jian was so upset she went drinking and drunk too much.  She called Jia Cheng to come collect her but for some reason it was Yi Pei who turned up.

He was gorgeous.

She woke up the next morning in his bed and was told by him that she hugged him tightly and the threw up all over him and then she would not allow him to take her home.

She was telling the whole story to Yi Pei assistant which was overheard by Jia Cheng.

She told Jia Cheng not to misunderstand but she was told there was nothing to misunderstand.  She had to find her own happiness with someone.

This really hurt her and she blurted that her happiness only includes him.  She was resigned to the fact that he was marrying someone else but he had no right to tell her to find her own happiness somewhere else.

Episode 12

Episode 17

Jiacheng was finding it hard to find a new job because he had been blackballed by his former father-in-law-to-be, Professor Song.

At last, he was offered a position as an architect by a prestigious firm but he had to relocate to Hong Kong.

Episode 18

Episode 19

Episode 20

It looks like Shi Jian’s mother’s breast cancer is back again.

Oh Jia Cheng is feeling the pinch.  He had to sell his jeepney to get buy.

Episode 21

Her cancer had come back and it went to her right breast.  She does not want the operation but Jia Cheng became the go-between between mother and daughter.

Shi Jian absolutely resolute that her mother has to have the operation.

Jia Cheng is such a good boyfriend, he tried to give all the money he has to Shi Jian but she would not accept it.

Yi Pei started to suspect that Shi Jian came from the future.

Wen Wen is missing.

Episode 22

Shi Jian encashed her investment inherited from her grandmother to play the stock market.  She remembered that she has a month before the stock market crashed in 2007.

She also warned Yi Pei about cashing in his stocks before September.

Shi Jian made 100,000 RMB in the stock market.

Her mother had her ops with the best surgeon as Yi Pei had secretly arranged the best for Shi Jian’s mother.

Jia Cheng left for England right after the mother’s operation.  He was attending a contest for best building design where he entered his Flying Bird, which he first created during his university days.

Episode 23 – 24

Jia Cheng was jubilant when he called from England because his Spirit Bird design was admired by Richard, an English architect judging the contest.

But from there it went downhill because Song Xiaojing had plagiarised his design and submitted it as her own.  And she had evidence that it was her own because she copyrighted it.

Because of the issue, Jia Cheng was kicked out for plagiarising his own work from Song Xiaojing.

He ended up having a fight with Xiaojing new fiance and almost got arrested by the police.

When he videocalled Shi Jian she noticed his bruised face and was obviously concerned and deduced immediately that it was because of his ex, which he did not tell her about.  She only found out about it from Wen Wen who saw them at the airport.

Jia Cheng reached the end of his tethered.  We went mental with Shi Jian for not trusting him, he said that he is not some kind of adulterer, he then abruptly disconnected their talk.

Shi Jian later found out about the bird but it was too rate.  She can no longer contact Jia Cheng.

She did not know that he ended up in the hospital for alcohol poisoning and a mild concussion.  He also met a woman called Yi Yiba or Eva for short.  Love Triangle or quad triangle with Yi Pei added to the equation.

Speaking of the gorgeous Yi Pei, he was locked in the toilet in a restaurant.  He was traumatised as he told Shi Jian, when he was seven years old he was kidnapped and locked in a windowless and dark room for a day and a night.  Since that day he had become afraid of being locked in.

I really love this drama.  So well made and interesting with superb cast!

Episode 25

Yi Pe so sweet.  Seeing that Shi Jian had turned into a walking dead, he bought her a ticket to go find JIa Cheng in London.

She shouldn’t have bothered because JIa Cheng is being taken cared of quite well by Yi Biya.

Anyway, toward that end of this episode is the most frustrating thing.  Shi Jian just missed Jian Cheng going into the Chinese Embassy.  It was mere seconds.

Then Yi Biya turned back the taxi to go back to Royal 7 Hotel to get a Victoria sponge from the bakery.

It so happened that Shi Jian was staying at the hotel and she was looking at cakes outside of the bakery while JIa Cheng and Yiba were inside.  At one point Jia Cheng and Shi JIan were only a foot away from each other only separated by a glass partition.

Episode 26

Yep, the love birds missed each other.  But Yi Pei found Shi Jian quite easily by the Thames river.

He really loved her and almost confessed to her when he took her to the VIP London Eye capsule.  But Shi Jian sort of preempted him saying that Jia Cheng will only be her future.

It turned out that Yi Biya is Yi Pei’s aunt.  She is a biological sister of Qingdong but she is quite close to both.

When Shi JIan and JIa Cheng finally met up, they ended up fighting.  Because he was so depressed of what happened to him in London while she keeps talking about what she can see in the future. He told her that her ultra optimism was not helping him and he told her to go as he wanted to be alone.

She ended up at the office to catch up with work.  She was found by Yi Pei who gave her advice to be patient with Jia Cheng and to give him time to come to terms with what happened. He said he can totally understand how JIa Cheng must be feeling.

Wen Wen telephoned out of the blue.  She told Shi Jian that she was back and would like to meet up at the go-cart arena.

Shi Jian was surprised to find YI Pei with Yi Biya already there.  Then came JIa Cheng, who was still annoyed with her and then came Wen Wen.

Shi JIan had a little accident that concerned not only Jia Cheng but Yi Pei as well.

Shi Jian and Jia Cheng made up and he gave her the pair of crystal foxes he bought from England.

Meanwhile, Wenwen announced to Yi Pei that she was ready to settle down. She wanted them to get married.

Episode 27

Everyone was trying to help JIa Cheng to move on but he was telling everyone to leave him alone.

Shi JIan got so desperate she went to Xaojing to beg her to return the Spirit Bird back to Jia Cheng.

When Xiaoqing agreed but with a condition that Shi Jian must break up with JIa Cheng.

Shi JIan said she will do it.

Xiaojing couldn’t wait to tell Jia Cheng that Shi Jian was willing to break up with him.

He went to see Shi JIan immediately and asked her why she went to Xioajing.  He was upset that he allowed herself to get humiliated because she humiliated him enough in London.  He doesn’t want Shi JIan to suffer too.

He also asked about her willingness to break up with him.

Shi Jian said that she was not really breaking up with him but they will have a cooling-off period to just let Xiaojing calm down.  Shi Jian said that she knew that they will end up in the future anyway so she was willing to wait for him.

This only made Jia Cheng more agree because of her weird testaments about the future.

Yi Pei also tried to help him by having a meeting with Professor Song.

Jia Cheng taught that Shi Jian asked Yi Pei’s help and started to take his frustration with the innocent Shi JIan.

Yi Pei went to see Jia Cheng to clear the matter about Professor Song.

Jia Cheng told Yi Pei that he does not want any help especially from him.

It seemed the only person JIa Cheng was willing to listen to was Yi Biya.

Episode 28

Jia Cheng and Shi Jian were always arguing about so many things including her mother, who had decided then to live more rather than continue to undergo more treatment.

Yi Pei supported her all the way including offering to send her and her mother to England for cancer treatment.

But instead of taking the offer, Shi Jian resigned.

Meanwhile, Qiao Qiao called Shi Jian in a panic because her boyfriend was beaten up by money lender for not paying up.  Apparently the boyfriend lost great in the stock market and had to borrow money which he can’t pay.

Qiao Qiao thought that Shi Jian should ask Yi Pei to lend her the money.

Shi Jian went to see Yi Pei and instructed him to not lend the money to her friend Qiao Qian under any circumstances because the boyfriend is a bad man.

Episode 29

Gorgeous Yi Pei asked Shi Jian the real reason why she wanted to resign from EMAO.

Shi Jian said that she feels that she stays at EMAO, she will get used to running to Yi Pei every time she needed help and to rely to Yi Pei too much.

Gorgeous Yi Pei said “I want you to get used me, I want you relying on me. No one is forcing me”  Awwww

Boyish handsome Jia Cheng took Shi JIan to their favourite restaurant. He poured them beers and he was drinking a lot.  He then told her that he had so much on his plate (no pun intended lol) that he cannot cope with her problems as well so he wanted them to break up.

The next day, Shi Jian called Jia Cheng to say that he was drinking so much the last time that he joked that they should break up.

Jia Cheng said that he can remember what he said and it was the truth he wanted to break up.  He then said that fate had made them meet too soon, probably if they had met later they would have a different ending.

Poor Shi Jian fainted in stress and sadness and Yi Pei had to take her to the hospital.

Jia Cheng was visited by Yi BiYa and then Yi Pei who told him that he caused too much stress to Shi Jian she ended up in the hospital.

Yi Biya told Jia Cheng that he should rethink what he was doing and ask himself whether he will never regret losing Shi Jian.

Episode 30

This episode is a cryfest.

Shi Jian collapsed in the rain and was in a coma due to high fever for at least a couple of days.  the doctor had told Yi Pei that Shi Jian was in a dangerous state and could end up brain-damaged.  She was very ill.

Everyone came to see her and spoke to her except Jia Cheng who was incommunicado.

Shi Jian’s mother blamed herself for her daughter’s current condition.  She told the comatose Shi JIan that would do anything for her including going to England for her treatment.

Then Shi Jian finally saw Jia Cheng but she quickly realised that the Jia Cheng she was hearing was her future Jia Cheng who was worriedly but lovingly tending to her comatose future self.

She finally woke up with Yi Pei sitting on a vigil next to her.

When Jia Cheng did surface, he visited Shi Jian’s mother who was confined in the hospital as well as she collapsed in Yi Pei’s arms.  Poor Yi Pei and all these collapsing women!

Anyway Jia Cheng told the sleeping mother that he broke up with her daughter because he cannot give Shi Jian anything at his current state.

Shi Jian and her mother was on the airport on their way to England.

Jia Cheng came running in to speak with Shi Jian.  He then cruelly gave her the 100RMB she gave him as a deposit for her/their love with the proviso that he must not fall in love with anyone until he had fallen in love with her.

Shi Jian realised that she cannot rely to this version of Jia Cheng.

Six months later…

Shi Jian is back while her mother is still in England for recuperation.  The treatment went well.

It was the birthday gala of the Chairman of EMAO.

Shi Jian looks beautiful and one of the first people she saw was a tuxedoed Jia Cheng who was happily chatting with YiDong (Qingdong).  He did not see her.

Yi Pei came to usher her into the mansion and told her that she was the most beautiful there tonight.

She asked Yi Pei why Jia Cheng was at the party.

Yi Pei said that Jia Cheng is now working with YiDong, who was the copyright of the Spirit Bird.  And he was getting closer to his aunt, YiBi.

Wenwen was also there and she said that her wedding with Yi Pei will be announced.

The pianist hired for the evening was a no-show (strange!!!) so Shi Jian was commandeered to the piano while YiBi recites a poem.

The piece she was going to play was the song she was playing on the piano when she first met Jia Cheng.

Episode 31

Shi JIan played the piano quite delicately and competently to start with but YiBa started reciting the poem Shi Jian and Jia Cheng’s favourite Pablo Nerudo’s poem and then walked in Jia Cheng himself.

She lost control a bit and bang on the piano.

Thank goodness the chairman saved her clapped.  He then told her that she reminded him of someone.

Shi Jian and Jia Cheng finally met again face to face.  Shi Jian was so cool towards him and he was sad.  She was treating him as a stranger.

Yi Pei with Zhang Kai and Shi Jian went to Qi Ling to present their bid proposal.  Also there were Yidong and Jia Cheng.

Yi Pei was trying to cheer Shi Jian up when Jia Cheng turned up.

Shi Jian hurried to leave and accidentally dropped her scarf.

Yi Pei later found the scarf.

Yiba and Wenwen turned up to surprise everybody as it was going to be the new year.

Jia Cheng went to see his parents and took YiBa with him.

Not knowing this Shi Jian was also going to see Jia Cheng parents but she saw them having a friendly time with Jia Cheng and YiBa just outside the parents house.

Shi Jian was so upset.

Episode 32

Totally recommend this drama.  It is so good.

Anyway, Wenwen went berserk when she found out that YI Pei is in love with Shi Jian.  She is unfairly blaming Shi Jian for Yi Pei’s attraction to her.

Despite Shi Jian telling her that she had only JIa Cheng in her heart, Wenwen would not cease with her vendetta directed to Shi JIan,

It went so bad that she made such a scene during a lunch party at the mansion. She forced Shi Jian to stay and then humiliated her in front of the family.

Both Yi Pei and Jia Cheng tried to protect Shi JIan which infuriated Wenwen even more.

Shi Jian left.

Episode 33

This drama is my favourite this year.  It will be added to my all-time favourite of which one is another Tang Yan starer called My Sunshine.

Anyway, Wenwen gave Yi Pei an ultimatum.  He told her to either make Shi Jian resign or fire her form EMAO.

Yi Pei finally got really annoyed with Wenwen.  He told her never to use a situation to make make a choice because a marriage contract can always be canceled.

Wenwen was livid so she called Shi Jian and told her that she treated her as a younger sister and a best friend so how could she behave appallingly towards her.

Shi Jian tendered her resignation the next day.

Yi Pei said that this was the second time she was resigning.  The first time because of Jia Cheng and now Wenwen.  When would be about him?

Anyway, Yi Pei finally accepted her resignation.

Her last day at work coincided with her birthday.  She was surprised with a huge 3-tiered birthday cake but Yi Pei was not there.

He was having a heart to heart break-up with Wenwen.

He was there before Shi Jian left.

He asked Shi Jian to see him and told her that she the first and only one he personally wanted to know that he had broken up with Wenwen.

He then gave her a pair of the most beautiful square cut diamond earrings.

He asked if she likes them.

Yes, I love them but no Shi Jian found them too expensive so she can’t accept them.

Awww hu hu hu.  Their scene was so sad.  I really wanted them to have a hug.

So out of his pocket, he gave her the female Lego, partner to his male Lego figure.

He told her to be with him and he would not let her suffer a single day.  Go, Go, Go already.

It was past 11pm at night when she got home and she was still hoping for at least a birthday text from Jia Cheng.

Episode 34

Jia Cheng did remember her birthday.   She found ice-cream lollies on her doorstep/doorway when she got home.

She raced to Jia Cheng’s place to tell him that she would like to start over again but Jia Cheng said that it was just a birthday present and nothing else.

Poor gorgeous Yi Pei was getting it from his family.

Sweet Wenwen tried to help him by pretending that it was her idea to cancel the wedding.  She got slap by her father which was too much for Yi Pei so he told him that it was really his idea to not go through the wedding because he had fallen with someone else.

This meant he had become rather of a pariah with the Zhou family, a big investor of EMAO and it was likely that he would lose his bid for QiLing properties as well.

Overnight he had become a lame duck and YiBa had been appointed as the new president of EMAO.

Shi Jian got a text from Jia Cheng to meet him at his apartment that night.  When she got there, she saw him intimately embracing YiBa.  It was all a plot by Jia Cheng to finally discourage Shi JIan from expecting anything else from him.

Shi Jian ended up at Yi Pei’s apartment.  She told him that she cannot be with him and she told him about her time travel, how she was married to Jia Cheng and how she wanted to kick-start her relationship with Jia-Cheng earlier than from their future-selves.  But everything went scrambled.

Yi Pei said he believes her but as everything had been scrambled they why not experience the more unfamiliar route with him.

Yes go, go go.

Episode 35

Shi Jian left China for the UK.  Once in a while, Yi Pei would visit her in London.

Jia-Cheng is thriving professionally at EMOA.

Episode 36

Awww Shi JIan’s mother had found love the second time round and she had gotten engaged to an English guy.

Now 4 years later in the UK, Shi Jian secretly flew back to China with only Qiao Qiao who is au fait of her arrival.

Shi Jian decided to follow the time line of her meeting Jia Cheng religiously.  So even when she saw him, she hid because it was not yet the time.

Meanwhile, Yi Pei is still in love with her and hoping to see her again in London.

Episode 41

Jia Cheng planned a romantic proposal for Shi Jian but she was a no show.

Shi Jian has been kidnapped by Yidong to forced Yi Pei to give up him back the incriminating evidence he had on him that could land him in prison.

Poor Yi Pei truly loved Shi Jian because he did everything Yidong wanted and even sign off all his stocks to Yidong.

But Jia Cheng saved Shi Jian.

Episode 42

It is Jia Cheng and Shi Jian’s wedding day that never was.

Cry cry cry hu hu hu

He bloody died, hu hu hu

Poor Wenwen was so guilty because she was partly responsible for Jia Cheng car accident leading to his death.

Episode 43

Shi Jian was demented with grief.  But she did not blame Wenwen much because she knew that it was her doing that really scrambled her timeline.

Everyone was worried about her, especially Yi Pei, who loved her the most.

Yi Pei finally visited Shi Jian at the old house, Jia Cheng old house and told her that he was going to help her pack up the old house.  It was not healthy for her to live there alone.

Shi Jian calmly told Yi Pei “I am alive but I feel dead inside.”  She then went to the old apartment.

Yi Pei was driving away but kept mulling about what Shi Jian said.  He turned back the car quickly and raced to her apartment.  He was just in time preventing Shi Jian of cutting her wrist.

Shi Jian said that she had to die because she can hear Jia Cheng talking to her from the other side.

This is another cry, cry, cry episode.

This episode also is about Yi Pei’s bereavement.  His grandfather died but before he did, he made Yi Pei and his long lost mother to reconcile, for Yi Pei to forgive his mother.

Episode 44

Shi Jian had gone back to her mother’s house.  It so happened her mother had arrived back from England to console her grieving daughter.

And this seemed to did the trick because she started living more normally again after she had made a deal with Yi Pei to build her house according to the design and specification of Jia Cheng’s yet ‘unplanned’ house as he had died prematurely.

After four years, Shi Jian is nowhere forgetting Jia Cheng and Yi Pei is loving her quietly and unselfishly.

Then he gave her the key to her new house.  Which is really a very retrograde move as she was now living in the shadow of her marriage from Jia Cheng of her future.

Everyone is starting to move on.

Episode 45

Don’t tell me goodbye.

Shi Jian, I will never say goodbye to you.

Never!!!
– Yi Pei to Shi Jian

 

It was the ten years anniversary of her pain crash.

Yi Pei found confirmation of her plain ticket to Santiago, Chile, which he remembered was the time her plane crashed and sent her back to the past.

It so happened that an invitation from Chile for Yi Pei was delivered to Shi Jian.  She hid this in her drawers because she does not want for him to go with her.

But it was fate.

He had to be there with her.

And during the turbulence, he held her hand.

Knowing that Yi Pei will save her from flying debris, she unfastened her seatbelt on and covered Yi Pei with her body against a flying dislocated handle of a suitcase.

She was really fond of him.

Then she woke up from her coma to Jia Cheng’s delight.

She found out that she had been sleeping for four months.

I am actually rather confused with this timeline because she was only 3 months pregnant and in a coma for four months and then we see that their baby looks like a 3-month-old super-cutie already.

The final scene is bittersweet.

Yi Pei was there looking at Shi Jian rather intently to check that she was fully recovered.  Then she was very glad to see him as well, that even Jia Cheng was rather confused.

Is he the past Yi Pei or the Future Yi Pei.

No matter what, I love him and Yang Shou has become a favorite.

Love this drama.  Something to rewatch again and again.

Yi Pei loved her unconditionally, through thick and thin.


The End
