Hiding in bathrooms and eating awkward meals.
Previously on YAMS… episode 19 recap
Yi Mei is back as the annoying OTP breaker as she takes stabs at the whole Mo Sheng/Ying Hui situation. Yi Chen ends up saying he knows the two are aware of each other in order to wrap things up. But seriously, Yi Mei doesn’t know when to quit does she? Because she brings it up again when Mo Sheng arrives. However, all her efforts are for naught because Yi Chen is still the same old, pouring tea for Mo Sheng because he loves her and that’s that!
Even Yuan Feng catches on because after the meal, he asks Yi Mei if she doesn’t like Mo Sheng or something. Oh man, Yi Mei, way to be obvious yo! Yuan Feng is concerned that Yi Chen will misunderstand Mo Sheng. Plus, he feels that they shouldn’t be too involved in someone else’s love life. Yi Mei starts to scream at Yuan Feng, telling him that he shouldn’t worry about her life either then. Totally unnecessary.
Mo Sheng, Xiao Hong and Da Bao are assigned the task of interviewing fashion icon, Mi Fei Er. When she gets home, Mo Sheng starts to pack up, but neglect to tell Yi Chen what she’s up to. Yi Chen sees her bags in the middle of hte living room and immediately flips out. He interrogates her on why she’s leaving, asking if she’s about to run away again. He pushes her down on the couch, totally upset as he asks her how many years she’s going for this time. He screams if she knows she’s a married woman now.
Finally, after Yi Chen calms down a bit Mo Sheng explains the whole interview thing. The room quiets.
Mo Sheng goes over to sit next to him and even holds his hand. He asks why she’s still not scared. The two embrace and he whispers his apology.
The trio arrives at a fancy hotel in Hong Kong. After a long long long wait, they finally get to see Mi Fei Er at some not so hopping party. I mean seriously, everybody is not really feeling the beats. Anyway, our old friend, Rio alcohol makes an appearance yet again. It’s like the whole world only knows this one brand of alcohol. I sure hope it tastes good or else all these actors are just getting crappy drinks.
Anyway, Mo Sheng gets dragged into the party by Xiao Hong and Da Bao. They bump into Ying Hui who is apparently the owner of the house they are in. Ying Hui acts close, “this is our Hong Kong house, didn’t I tell you when I bought it?” Mi Fei Er explains that she got invited to this party last minute so they need to move the interview to another time.
Ying Hui excuses himself and Mo Sheng. He takes this opportunity to tell her that he had to delay the divorce announcements because he must consider the overall well being of his image for the company. Mo Sheng rejects this idea, but he continues to beg her, bringing up all these big reasons about how it will cause many people to lose money. Mo Sheng refuses to help, and he guilt trips her some more, requesting her to at least not deny anything. Is this guy for reals?
So Ying Hui leaves Mo Sheng with no choice but to hide in the bathroom. She calls up Yi Chen to confesses to him that she bumped into Ying Hui at the cocktail party. Yi Chen gets the address of the house from her. Yes! Go get your girl!
Quite some time later, Mo Sheng is still in the giant bathroom waiting for the party to be over, but she is starting to get hungry. Meanwhile, Yi Chen books a flight to Hong Kong via TaoBao and gets a ticket in a split second! OMG, the miracles of Taobao! Or should I say, product placement?
Anyway, the party is over and Mo Sheng gets ready to leave, but gets stopped in front by Ying Hui. He asks the trio if they want to take a tour of the house and of course the other two are totally up for it. They go on the tour as Ying Hui mentions Xiao Jia, expressing how much he misses the boy. Argh.
Ying Hui tries to get the trio to stay for the night, but Mo Sheng declines and surprise, surprise, Xiao Hong and Da Bao agree. Seeing how there is no more he could say, Ying Hui offers them a ride back in his Lincoln. He also changes into a different suit. So what, he was like hey ya’ll Imma go change a suit, brb?
They arrive at the hotel, and Ying Hui insists on walking them in. Guess who is there to greet them in the lobby?
Yi Chen! Yay! Mo Sheng asks why he is here (duh, for you!), and Yi Chen lies that it’s for work. Mo Sheng is all like why didn’t you tell me yesterday! Face palm, can this girl be any more clueless?
Ying Hui already upgraded the trio’s standard rooms to nice suites, adding on that Mo Sheng’s room even has an ocean view. Yi Chen comes in and tells Ying Hui that this is great, because he didn’t get a room yet and he was afraid he wouldn’t be able to, but he doesn’t have this concern anymore!
Xiao Hong tries to break the ice and suggests that they go eat. Ying Hui jumps at the opportunity, saying he will buy dinner since he forgot Mo Sheng didn’t eat yet. Yi Chen offers to buy instead, and so Xiao Hong says she and Da Bao are tired and they take their leave.
At the restaurant, Ying Hui and Yi Chen engage in an order war. They each order a bunch of Mo Sheng’s favorites. And then they both try to put out her napkin. Then at the meal, they each take turn putting food on her plate. Every time one of them recommends something, the other recommends something immediately after. Finally, Mo Sheng tastes the red bean soup Yi Chen ordered and compliment him on a great choice. As Yi Chen brims with happiness and pride, Ying Hui sits there sulking in bitterness.
Worthy of Note:
- Xiao Hong instructs Mo Sheng to bring an extra large bag when they go to Hong Kong in case her own doesn’t fit all the stuff she’s going to buy. ^^;;
- Xiao Hong and Da Bao overhear people calling Mo Sheng Mrs. Ying. They wonder if they have mistaken and they worry that this is all Ying Hui’s doing because he is trying to force her into being with him.
- Xiao Hong and Da Bao also suspect Ying Hui and Mo Sheng are divorced and that Yi Chen is her current boyfriend.
