While conversing with a client, Wen Kai laughs with mild embarrassment when the client pointedly encourages him to make his perfect secretary Elsa into his life long partner instead. Feeling awkward, Wen Kai apologizes to Elsa for placing her in such an uncomfortable situation then turns away to get back to work. Stopping dead in his track when Elsa suddenly puts her arms around him, Wen Kai listens quietly as Elsa confesses "Instead of being embarrassed when people say those things I have actually been secretly happy. I like you very much."
Rushing on when Wen Kai tries to say something, Elsa continues "You don't have to say anything. If you like someone, a lot can be discerned just by their touch. I can tell, that your heart doesn't skip a beat for me."
Leaving work, Elsa is uncharacteristically forward when she sees Zhi Yu standing in front of her company waiting for Yu Tang. Striking up a conversation with Zhi Yu, Elsa tells him that Yu Tang has a previous dinner engagement that night and asks him for a ride.
Sitting alone as he waits to have dinner with Elsa, Wen Kai stares at Yu Tang in surprise when she shows up instead. Realizing that they were both tricked by Elsa, Wen Kai bids Yu Tang to sit down.
Glad to finally have a chance to talk to Wen Kai, Yu Tang asks him point blank "I thought you came to the company to seek revenge on me but...(she lists all the things he has done for her thus far), it seems like you are helping me...protecting me?" Unfortunately, instead of jumping on the perfect chance to confess to Yu Tang, Wen Kai is more focused on the annoying hairband from Zhi Yu and demands "Why are you tying your hair up when I told you that your hair looks better down?!" Immensely frustrated that Wen Kai is still harping on her hairband, Yu Tang yells "Why are you like this?! I am asking you about A so why are you talking about Z?" Equally frustrated, Wen Kai insists "But A and Z are the same thing to me!"
Waking up with a start after she dozed off, Yu Tang laughs as she finds a cup of coffee AND her favorite squid treat with yet another sticky note waiting for her. In a very obligating mood now, Yu Tang quickly agrees to go to Wen Kai's house the next morning to resume her cleaning when Wen Kai sends her a text to rescind his previous order that she can never show up at his place again.
Picking up the familiar looking box, Yu Tang stares at the hairband inside as the puzzle of why Wen Kai had been so grumpy lately finally starts to make sense.
Hoot! Hoot! According to the preview it sure looks like we will finally get a kiss! I have been so spoiled by T-drama recently, I am really not used to leads that haven't at least "accidentally" kissed by the first five episodes so this really feels like "Finally!".
Well, this week's episode officially crowns Elsa as the perfect female second lead all around. One can't but applaud Elsa's wisdom in allowing herself to put an end to her crush by confessing her feelings but then also take the extra step in helping the two leads in her own way.
The interesting thing is that in a lot of ways Elsa and Zhi Yu are very much alike, but instead of choosing to see the writing on the wall Zhi Yu holds onto the belief that he can somehow change Yu Tang's mind. It makes me wonder if Elsa's rather sad family background has forced her to learn the art of letting go while Zhi Yu's privileged upbringing has instilled in him the belief that he can eventually get what he desires if he just works hard at it. I guess neither approach is necessarily right or wrong. In a different drama, Zhi Yu might've been the hero and get the girl in the end...just not in this one though...
