Yeaaaahhhh, another slow episode. My anticipation isn’t running any higher for the next ep. 🙁 I really want to see some girl power. The girls aren’t playing a very feasible role here… As we know, Die Fei is the female lead but from my perspective, she and Alice are on the same level.
Our two male leads finish their bonding time. Hai Jie thanks Ting Yu for accepting him into the Ketagalan Symphony Orchestra. The two stand over at the balcony looking ahead of them. Hai Jie tells him that when he plays the violin up too late, he gets complaints from his neighbours so he can only stop playing. Ting Yu tells him that he cannot hear the compromising side of him instead he hears stubbornness. Hai Jie explains that it could be because he really really loves a person but she left and when he plays the violin he will think of her.
Ting Yu arrives home to discover Alice asleep in his house. She wakes and he tells him not to move. She asks him how he knows her mother. He tells her that with the exception of his mother, Lisa is the most important person in his life. In a flashback, Lisa saves him from getting bashed up from some gangsters.
Ting Yu falls asleep and wakes up to find a note from Alice saying ‘I am sorry’.
Hai Jie is practising his violin with the crew. However, he gets criticised by the interviewer guy for the way he is playing as he seems uncomfortable. Hai Jie tells him that there is a problem by playing this way. He feels that violin should not be played by this, allowing only the music master to be the star and everyone else to be the dark sky. Hearing this, Ting Yu leaves, as does everyone else.
Ting Yu calls Die Fei in and asks for his schedule. He asks for an event that Die Fei could not seem to find in his ever busy schedule, he recalls how he lost his Hai Ou. He tells her this must be how she lost his Hai Ou and she explains that it has been proven that it was not lost because of her. She finally finds the events and tells him that they (the event) wants to seem the performance of the newbies first before they decide who would play the main role. ‘Newbie? Chen Hai Jie?’ With this he kicks (literally) Die Fei out.
She goes to take a break where she talks out her problems with Hai Jie. She tells him the importance and how much this job means to her. She questions whether this is her problem. He tells her they are here for music and that in this world there is a lot of complicated things in this world. So they must face and do what they love. She invites him to her birthday party which he agrees.
Ting Yu is not practising his violin any more. He tells the interviewer guy he doesn’t want Hai Jie to leave.
Ting Yu gives Die Fei a scolding which leaves her in tears. He tells her that she has no right to critic them (musicians).
Hai Jie leaves and spots Ting Yu. Ting Yu tells Hai Jie that he does not disagree with his point-of-view for the performance. Hai Jie wants to explain to him about Lan Fei Fei but Ting Yu tells him that he is busy and drives off. Just before his drives off, he tells him that he still owes him a lunch. As he drives off, Hai Jie screams that it doesn’t have to be a lunch; he will take him to a special place next time.
They meet at a natural reserve for a bike ride. Hai Jie starts off behind but soon overrides Ting Yu. (Why does Hai Jie bring his violin everywhere!?) However, Hai Jie stops for a break and so Ting Yu arrives at the destination first. Hai Jie asks him why he must always win. So what if he arrives first, he still has to wait. Ting Yu tells him that he does not like to trail people. Hai Jie joking says that by trailing behind someone at least you won’t get lost. Ting Yu asks him could it be possible that he doesn’t want to put up a challenge? He jokingly replies ‘you’. Jokingly? ‘Well why did you make it so difficult for me?’ Hai Jie tells him that he was just voicing her opinion and wasn’t purposely targeting him. Hai Jie also tells Ting Yu to give Die Fei some more time, and he invites Ting Yu to a party.
Alice and her mother spend some bonding time together.
The boys go shopping for a birthday present for Die Fei. Hai Jie buys a necklace and Ting Yu buys some Beethoven CD thingy.
It’s a dress up birthday party. Die Fei is dressed up as a vampire and even puts on fake blood in order to scare the crowd. However as she walks and trips onto Ting Yu. Whoops. The cake arrives and she makes three wishes. Wish 1 – For all her good friends to find their other half. Wish 2 – For everyone to never get lost and to always be able to find themselves. Wish 3 – Not telling. 😉 Anyway, it’s not awkward as she gives Ting Yu a hug when she sees the present.
It’s truth or dare time. Hai Jie gets asked the question ‘do you have a girlfriend?’ He passes it to Ting Yu who answer that he doesn’t but he gets asked the question again anyway. He says that he did have one but then he lost it.
Alice and Hai Jie have simultaneous flashbacks to the time when they spent their last night together. She tells him about her life and birthplace in Japan. He asks her why she likes him and she tells him that he resembles a boy that she liked when she was younger. (Okay… she does not like you for you) One day she was crying and the little boy took her hand and told her a bunch of words that she could not make sense of trying to comfort her. The next day he finds a note from Alice saying that if there is a chance, she will come back to find him.
Yeahhh…back in reality, Hai Jie has gotten himself drunk so Ting Yu and Die Fei has to send him back home.
Meanwhile, Alice gets a message from a guy called SJ (my first thought is Super Junior. LOL) asking her where she is and to reply back.
After sending Hai Jie back home, Die Fei and Ting Yu are waiting at the bus stop. He discovers that she likes Hai Jie. He tells her that even if Alice does not return, Hai Jie’s heart will never have a place for her. He tells her that he will take the bus for the first time. The bus arrives, Die Fei hopes on and the bus drives off. He then gives her a salute.
Lisa meets Mei Mei’s mother who she brought back into the right path.
Ting Yu’s face lights up at the discovery of Siren. However, his manager is reluctant to allow him to go and get it because the violin brings on a curse to anyone who has played it. No one has lived past the age of 35. However, Ting Yu is adamant to get Siren and the only way he can do this is to personally travel to Japan.
Alice meets her mother at the zoo and she has transitioned back into the old and innocent Alice. They talk and her mother brings up a memory which she clearly remembers but tells her mother that she has no impression of it. She then receives another message from SJ.
Die Fei and Hai Jie are more than surprised when they discover that they will be going to Japan with Ting Yu.
Yet another slow episode. My patience is running out! I am dying for some progress to happen in this! Usually with each episode in a drama there will be anticipation and let downs but this, well, to say the least it is dead flat with let downs. If this continues, I’ll just be watching this drama for the sake of Aaron Yan (I don’t like to drop series that I have started). I can’t even feel any emotions from Aaron. It’s just very…bland.
I am very disappointed in Die Fei, in both the character and the actor. Her character is very one sided. She doesn’t seem to have another side to her. I think that when we start to see her sing, there will be another side to her but for now it is very bland and basic. I don’t get the purpose of her role. What annoys me about her is not just her voice but how she cries. It’s all very fake and I don’t see the emotion there.
I am just that teeny bit less disappointed with Alice. At least she has a character. She is on the run from SJ, that I am sure about. I want to see her and Hai Jie meet again. I wonder how things will turn out. Ahahaha… I want them to be together but even so I do not see the chemistry between her and Hai Jie.
Basically, no one has any chemistry with anyone in this drama. I was so looking forward to this drama and so far it has been disappointing. 🙁
