After three weeks of frustrating awkwardness between Xiao Shu and Zhou Zhen, things are finally starting to progress for our slow moving couple, which is why I've decided this episode is my favorite (so far) and here's why (in no particular order)... water party (650x365) 1. Gao Zhe Xuan's Confession Gets An Answer the answer (650x365) For the longest time we've been watching Gao Zhe Xuan pine over Xiao Shu. Our hearts ached for him as we watched him watch Xiao Shu fall for Zhen. We cheered for him when he finally got the courage to confess his love to Xiao Shu. And as painful as it was to watch him receive Xiao Shu's answer, we (or at least I) breathed a sigh of relief because now, Gao Zhe Xuan is finally free to fall in love with someone else. *ahem, Ying Ying* Did anyone else's heart get a little fluttery when Zhe Xuan accepted Xiao Shu's rejection by saying he wasn't going to be manly about it by admitting he was sad, or was that just mine? What is it about a guy being open with his feelings? I personally thought Zhe Xuan was exceptionally manly at that point and when he went on to say he wasn't going to see Xiao Shu for a still my fluttering heart! rejected (650x365) 2. The Adorable Zhou Family teamwork (650x365) Can I just say right now that Zhou Zhen and Ying Ying are probably the cutest sibling duo ever. I mean really! Have you ever seen a brother and sister get along so incredibly well in Drama Land? I loved Zhen's willingness to stay up all night to help Ying Ying develop the business plan he demanded from her in the first place but more than that, I just love watching these two together. Zhen is always trying to be the cool, slightly stand-offish older brother but you can tell that he really loves his little sister and wants the best for her. *Awww* But beyond these sweet siblings I'm really enjoying the depth we're beginning to see within the Zhou family. It's quickly becoming apparent that this family truly cares about each other and I love how they work together to solve whatever problems and difficulties they may be facing as individuals and as a whole. Look at the way Nai Nai, Ying Ying and Zhen worked together to sooth the raging volcano that was Papa Zhou, after Xiao Shu's attack at the restaurant. They each did their part to calm him down and they were able to work through everything by talking it out. (It's amazing what a little communication can do!) stuffed volcano (650x365) 3. Pet Names still a princess (650x365) As I said in a previous post, I love that Gao Zhe Xuan has given Ying Ying a pet name so it should come as no surprise that I also love that Ying Ying has given Zhe Xuan a pet name as well. Sure, "four-eyed jerk" isn't the name you'd like your significant other to address you by but hey, it's a step in the right direction. foureyed jerk (650x365) 4. Farewell Misunderstandings bro sis (650x365) Watching Xiao Shu's grumpy mood swings over last weeks misunderstanding was driving me nuts so I'm happy things were cleared up so quickly in this episode. I think I would have jumped out the window if I'd had to watch one more episode of Xiao Shu's awkwardness around Zhen but thankfully that can wait for whatever frustration might lie ahead. huh (650x365) 5. The Overall Cuteness of Zhou Zhen and Liang Xiao Shu don't catch cold (650x365) I don't care how many times I see these two together, I just can't get enough. My poor heart goes pitter-patter every time they're on screen together. Zhen is the epitome of sweetness when it comes to Xiao Shu and you know she's loving every minute of it, even if she can't admit that to herself yet. Every sweet and caring gesture Zhen makes causes my heart to melt and this episode was full of them...the jacket, the hot cocoa, the heating pads...I swoon just thinking about them... so happy together (650x365) So now that I've shared my favorites from this episode, I'd love to hear yours. Share them below and we can swoon together as we eagerly await what looks to be a very promising episode eight. *squee* More from the LOVE AROUND Drama Club!
