Synopsis: As someone who prize his ability to read people at one glance, Xia You Qian's ability seems to lose its magic when it comes to his school age crush, An Xi. Believing An Xi has grown into a girl who will do anything for money, what will our hero do when An Xi keeps surprising him upon closer inspection?
When I See You Again Episode One Recap
An interesting side note is that An Xi was also clutching a piece of paper very tightly in her fist, so something unpleasant probably set her off before poor You Qian showed up.
A big time jump later. We meet our nerdy hero again, except You Qian has become a tough business man who acts and looks like the golden catch he has become. After making yet another successful contract for his boss by using his sharp ability to read everyone he meets, You Qian is surprised when his boss sends him on a business trip right back to his old home town where he left a long time ago.
As luck would have it, You Qian just happens to be swimming at the pool and is puzzled when he recognizes An Xi as the woman who keeps talking to him while covering her eye. (After getting a quick glance of You Qian's naked torso, An Xi mistakenly assumes You Qian must be Jiang Hai Kuo.) Feeling desperate, An Xi tries to get on Hai Kuo (You Qian really) good side by massaging his shoulders and promises that "I am willing to do anything for the money."
Totally jumping to the wrong conclusion, You Qian reveals himself to not be Jiang Hai Kuo and tells An Xi "I despise girls like you the most." At first surprised that the man she has been begging is actually not Hai Kuo then offended to hear You Qian's words, An Xi gets into a full body fight with You Wi and they both fall into the pool together.
The impromptu water fight finally ends when An Xi's friend arrives to pull her off You Qian. As a still furiously yelling An Xi is being dragged away by her friend, You Qian all the sudden surprises the two by dropping a towel over her soaking wet shoulder. Oh, my... I think I am going to like this hero.
Watching You Qian's gentle manner with her fellow contestants, hope starts to swell up in An Xi that maybe You Qian will not hold their fight the night before against her. Unfortunately, An Xi's hope is dashed ruthlessly when You Qian publicly accuses her of meeting up with the event organizer the night before at the hotel in order to enter her team into the competition after the registration deadline. Ignoring An Xi's angry protest, You Qian tells her "You are the one that admitted that you are the kind of girl that will do anything for money."
Not bad at all! I will admit that I havn't been super impressed with the two leads' (Jasper Liu and Mandy Wei) previous work but I am liking the chemistry between the two which makes me hopeful maybe When I See You Again will make me into a fan of the two actors.
Thus far the plot is kinda predicable but cute nevertheless. I am especially powerless against a hero who is obviously still head over the heel in love with our heroine despite believing she has turned into a materialistic woman. Anyhow, definitely planning to check out the next episode and crossing my fingers that this will turn into a winner.
