This episode marked the real beginning of Zhou Zhen and Liang Xiao Shu's romance, and it was handled in the perfect way. As Xiao Shu finally realizes that Zhen is always there for her, her co-workers also point out that there may be more to their relationship than just being friends. [caption id="attachment_174829" align="alignnone" width="585"]lovearoundep5pic3 Nai nai knows best![/caption] EVERYONE thinks there is something going on between Xiao Shu and Zhen. Even people who don't know them both can tell by the way they act when apart. What's important in this situation is how the two react once they realize that they are pretty much a couple. So far Xiao Shu seems to be the only one of the two who has taken the thought into consideration, and she seemed really freaked out.

Xiao Shu was acting like Zhen might jump on her at any second while Zhen was completely oblivious to her nervousness. My thought on her fear is that she does indeed like Zhen. If she didn't like him, she would distance herself from him and probably wouldn't become a basket case every time he touches her.

Clearly he wants to help her, protect her, and stay by her side as much as possible. Someone hot, rich, and with a gangster past would definitely not be so innocent and clueless about women in reality or outside of an Asian drama, but in this case I will accept it. lovearoundep5pic10 Now let's outline the couple imminent obstacles:
  1. Gao Zhe Xuan, Xiao Shu's childhood friend, likes her too. He is also a nice guy, and I feel bad for him, but he needs to step off.
  2. Zhou Zhen's dad is Xiao Shu's sworn enemy. I enjoy their silly rivalry, and though they clearly hate each other, it doesn't seem too serious. Hopefully Mr. Zhou can grow up a little and support his son.
  3.  They are both so clueless about relationships. Even though the drama started off with both of them in romantic relationships, neither of them seem to have any idea how to handle it. They are a much better fit for each other than the last people they were with.

He is such a magnificent clown, and he really steals the show during the office scenes. But when he got out the guitar and started signing "Back to Me"... **swoon** He has a great voice.
