Episode 24 Highlights:
Our leading lady, Luo Li, and her parents return to her apartment. Bickering begins. Luo Li is a professional at mediating bickering between her parents. Wonder if that drove her to become a lawyer? Mom tells Luo Li that fighting is the prelude to makeup cuddles. Mom proves the point immediately by manipulating Dad.
Ex-wife in the “fake but real” divorce calls Luo Li. She’s being flooded with IOUs from her husband. Luo Li tells her she’ll see her in her office tomorrow.
A bit of an awkward dinner between new mom and wife, Mei Yu, cheating husband, Qian Kuen (though Mei Yu does not he is cheating), and his lover and her friend, Shi Jiang. Mei Yu is grateful that Shi Jiang found her husband a job. It’s weird to see them pound wine like they are doing shots. When Mei Yu steps away from the table. Shi Jiang tells Qian Kuen she wants to see him and knows he is avoiding her. He bluntly tells her his priority is his wife and child. She pleads with him for time together. She promises not to interfere. He flatly tells her she’s interfering right now. The conversation is cut off when Mei Yu returns. They end the awkward evening with cheers and thanks to Shi Jiang.
Oh no, Hai Dong’s ex-wife’s lover is doing poorly in the stock market. He’s mad when he gets home. He becomes furious when he sees all the clothes she bought. Jealous that she has her own money and paranoid that she cannot get Hai Dong out of her mind, he beats her. It is not a pretty scene.
Xiao Gang picks Hai Dong up at the police station. The law seems to be it isn’t domestic violence if they are in a relationship, making it a “family matter”. Hai Dong’s ex-wife picks up her boyfriend. The boyfriend and Hai Dong stare daggers at each other before getting into the cars.
Xiao Gang takes Luo Li and her parents to breakfast. Luo Li gets a calls and heads into the office.
The boyfriend apologizes the Hai Dong’s ex-wife and promises he’ll never hurt her again.
When Luo Li gets to the office, the lady from the TV station is there and once again tries to convince Luo Li to offer on-air divorce advice. Luo Li tells her politely and firmly no. The lady asks her to consider the offer. Luo Li tells her another time.
How cute. Luo Li has an appointment with Hai Dong. She checks herself out, making sure she looks good. Love seeing her primp for him. The chemistry is building between these two.
I simply adore how he barges into her office and she makes him exit and knock politely. Then he opens with the plea for them to makeup. She agrees then flips the 2 minute timer on her desk letting him know her time is precious. I could watch them do that all day long. Love it!
Hai Dong asks if Xiao Gang was her source about the secret mansion. She won’t divulge her source. Hai Dong wants to talk more but Luo Li has her drama class to attend. She tells him he can come with her if he likes.
At the class, Hai Dong continues to pester Luo Li for details on her relationship with Xiao Gang. She offers little. The teacher arrives and picks Luo Li to do an improvisation scene on the “night before her wedding”. Luo Li protests her partner is not there. The teacher asks Hai Dong if he’d be Luo Li’s partner. Luo Li dares him to do it and drags him to his feet. Hai Dong is speechless…
