Episode 7 Recap:HERE
While bemoaning the fact that she still has a month and half left before she can start living as a girl, Ya Nuo admits her fear of losing her chance with Zi Feng when Xiao Jin reminds her of his recent marriage date.
Provoked by Zi Feng's words, Ya Nuo tries unsuccessfully to wipe her own face and is immediately gratified when Zi Feng takes the tissue from her hand to wipe the offending stain himself. In a somewhat awkward coy manner, Ya Nuo turns her head slightly and asks "Is there anywhere else that needs to be wiped?" Ha!
Remember the scene when Zi Feng takes a sleeping Ya Nuo home and he leans close to her trying to figure out his own feelings towards her? Yap, That picture.
Just when neither Zi Feng nor Ya Nuo's denial seem to be doing any good, Zhe Rui suddenly comes forward and declares that he is the one that likes Ya Nuo but Ya Nuo has turned him down.
Stammering for an answer, Zhe Rui is saved by the arrival of a very grateful Ya Nuo and quickly makes an excuse to leave so he doesn't have to face Zi Feng's burning questions.
Concerned when he receives a resignation letter from Ya Nuo via Guang Chao's hand, Zi Feng becomes frantic when Guang Chao hesitantly informs him that Ya Nuo is on her way to Japan.
Dragged out of the airport by Zi Feng, Ya Nuo shyly pulls her hand out of Zi Feng's grasp when she realizes that Qing Yang has also participated in the "Catch Ya Nuo!" mission. With one glance at Ya Nuo and Zi Feng's clasped hands, Qing Yang quickly excuses himself and leaves our two leads alone.
Not feeling guilty at all as he watches his best friend leaving to take a taxi home, Zi Feng pulls Ya Nuo close to him and says "If you dare to disappear on me again, I... can't promise what I'll do then."
Moved almost to tears as Zi Feng continues to divulge how scared he was by the thought that he might not be able to catch her before she leaves on the plane, Ya Nuo pulls Zi Feng to her and promises "I will not disappear on you ever again. I am sorry."
I am usually so annoyed when the writer does these near misses but this scene was kinda cool when our two leads both confess their feelings for each other at the same time without realizing they are so close to each other.
Walking back to the canopy that is suppose to make wishes come true, Ya Nuo decides to try one more time and prays "Let me see Du Zi Feng. Let me see Du Zi Feng. Let me see Du Zi Feng."
Gingerly opening her eyes, Ya Nuo freezes as she and Zi Feng stare at each other.
Oh My! Any guesses on what Ya Nuo is going to say to Zi Feng?! Judging by our two leads' interaction on the preview for next week I am guessing Ya Nuo probably blamed her appearance on her cousin's birthday wish and thanks to Ya Nuo's last minute princess gig at the amusement park a while ago, I think Zi Feng would have no problem believing her.
By the way, anyone else was betting on Zi Feng NOT finding Ya Nuo in time like I was? I was totally preparing myself for a time jump but alas it looks like we are not at that point yet. I used the word yet because I am still convinced that a time jump will happen in the future. The sweet heart pounding suggestive scenes are great and all but I really don't think I am patient enough to watch our two leads suffer through the next 47 days (before our heroine can show her true gender) one episode at a time.
False time jump expectation aside, I did love Zi Feng's declaration of "You are not allowed to leave me" though. It is pretty funny that our two leads are totally acting like a couple and everyone else can see it but themselves.
In this scene Zi Han is very put off that the feet massage therapist she wanted is not available. Volunteering himself, Guang Chao assures Zi Han that his "Golden Left and Right Hands" are up to the job.
After a brief hesitation, Na Na agrees to Zi Feng's condition and takes the money. Thoughtful after Na Na leaves, Qing Yang assures Zi Feng and Ya Nuo that Na Na must have a good reason for the money. Exchanging a knowing gaze with each other, Zi Feng and Ya Nuo teases Qing Yang.
Na Na moves into the room her father has carefully prepared for her, but much to Qing Yang's disappointment, Na Na obviously still harbors a lot of resentment towards Daddy Nan.
Some of the readers commented on the hilarious BTS so I thought I would share my favorite BTS from this week.
As a spoof, Ya Nuo is crowned the emperor while Qing Yang, Zhe Rui, Zi Feng and Guang Chao are all lined up as her concubines.
