Fortunately, episode 8 is the resolution to the incidents that arose in episode 7. After being kidnapped by the evil politician, of course Zhen ran to save his sweet Xiao Shu. He tried his best to thwart the thugs that were holding her captive, but his internal bleeding from the bike accident stopped him. Oddly, though, the accident and the abduction that followed, brought Zhen and Xiao Shu closer together. She realized that he has been doing a lot of dumb things for her and that she's the only woman he spends his time with (besides Ying Ying and Nainai, of course).

And because she found out during such an eventful time, she didn't have a chance to get angry that Zhen lied to her so she quickly forgave him. I was pleased with how the drama handled the resolution of that misunderstanding. Instead of Xiao Shu acting hurt and pushing Zhen away, she decided to give Zhen and Mr. Zhou a chance to make up for the deception and tell their side of things. I am becoming more fond of Xiao Shu with every passing week. She is a truly kind and understanding person, usually (I still don't agree with how she rejected Zhe Xuan).

I thought that was drama law[/caption] During his hospital stay to recover from surgery, Xiao Shu learned a bit more about the Zhou family and the Liang's were introduced to Zhen. Of course, Zhen was unconscious while her parents were visiting, but at least they know of his presence now. I could tell her mother approved of Zhen's handsomeness (who wouldn't?), but her father seemed hesitant. I predict Zhen's gangster background will become a point of contention with Mr. Liang. lovearoundep8pic7 Now that Xiao Shu and Mr. Zhou had their very cheesy radio show and decided to end the hate between them, where is this drama heading? Well, I have a few premonitions (if you will) about that. As I mentioned earlier, I think Mr. Liang will disapprove of Zhen because of his family's background. Our Love Around couple has just barely began their romantic relationship, so there must be more obstacles coming their way, right? Will the ex-girlfriend make an appearance or is she gone for good? It's not that I want there to be conflict in the relationship, but this is an Asian drama, after all. Since Zhen is so nice to Xiao Shu, I am quite sure the conflict between the two will be mainly external. More from the LOVE AROUND Drama Club!
