I have to say that I didn’t enjoy Episode 3 as much as the previous two. I enjoyed seeing my OTP but the lame Peter storyline dragged on. And was definitely forced to create ridiculous conflict for our characters. Other than that, the whole “Will you be my dance partner?” arc (which I liked at first) was needlessly dragged on solely to have it culminate in a misunderstanding.
Considering how close Ai Li Si was to her friends, I found it a bit far fetched that she would lose her friendships over that lame guy’s lies. But then I recall that back in high school, we sometimes made mountains out of molehills and ended friendships for very stupid reasons. And I wonder if she also had to move away due to some family reasons we’ll learn about in a future episode.
Another lame scene took place at the bookstore where Ai Li Si couldn’t look up and see who she was fighting with. I can’t be the only one who let out a sigh of relief when they finally looked into each other’s eyes. And am I the only person getting tired of all the accidental skinship scenes that end with them staring into each other’s eyes? Less is more, Director!
Anyway, Episode 3 brought us into the present (?) where Ai Li Si is potentially sick and has resolved to be different from the sweet, giving girl she was at 17. And now thirteen years after going “missing,” she will be forced to work with her high school crush, Hao Yi.
“Peter” is looking hot now that they taken off his fake zits and fake teeth. What I’m confused about is if he’s now dating Ai Li Si. Is he responsible for the breakfast deliveries? Regardless, I am sure he still has feelings for Shu Lei because in dramas, characters never move on from their first loves. And when she falls for him, will he forgive her for being shallow? Although to be fair, he never had the balls to ask her out as himself so it’s on him too.
