During his nightly visit with Daddy Zhen at the hospital Ying Jie informs his dad about Man An's new job at the company. Daddy Zhen nods in acknowledgment but his expression doesn't give any clues about how he feels about the situation.
After confirming with Man An that she did indeed started working at the factory to prove herself to him, Daddy Zhen tells her "I will look forward to you proving yourself."
Now that our couple finally has all of their families' approval, Ying Jie pulls out all of the tricks up his sleeve (well, actually they are all the tricks that Daddy Zhen used on his wife when they were dating) and takes Man An on dates.
Dismayed to realize that Ying Jie took his promise with Mama Xia to heart and refuses to even hold hands with her, Man An begs her mother to "release" Ying Jie from their agreement.
After much hesitation, Mama Xia finally gives her blessing for Ying Jie to hold hands with Man An ... and maybe even some kisses.
Is this the same lady that told her son to not spend money on hotels with his girlfriend but just come back to the house instead?? I guess Mama Xia and Daddy Xia always did treat their daughters differently. They did kinda give Man Li a hard time when she stayed out all night.
Scared out of his mind during the hours of searching, Ying Jie is overjoyed to finally hold Man An in his arms and makes the decision to propose to her.
The next morning, over breakfast, Ying Jie tells his parents of his decision to propose to Man An. Nodding at Ying Jie's announcement, Daddy Zhen gives his approval and support to his son's decision.
After some cryptic warning from Shange De, Man Li finally starts to catch on that perhaps Xiang Ning is not so innocent in her intention towards Li Qi after all.
Sitting at a bar with Li Qi, Xiang Ning gets him to confess the whole mess with Man Li and Shange De to her. Jumping on the opportunity, Xiang Ning innocently tells Li Qi "If I were you I would keep wondering if maybe Shang De wasn't telling the truth when he said nothing happened that night... after all, only the two of them knew what happened."
Hmm... the show is starting to feeling a bit slow. The conflicts keeps coming but they feel a bit ... business like??
I feel really bad saying this because I would like to think of myself as one of those viewers who doesn't need makjang elements in my dramas to stay interested... however, I need ... something to pick up my interest on our two leads. The sweet innocent romance is cute to watch and all but I am not sure it will keep my interest going for much longer. (Going to stand in the corner and hang my head in shame.)
It doesn't help that Li Qi's is really not earning any brownie points lately. I am afraid Shang De is looking better and better.
