So I had to debate real hard whether or not to do this episode today after a full work day and then some. It’s a great episode, but it’s also mentally exhausting to recap Tong Hua’s stuff since she’s a master of prose and quips. Here goes. Episode 4 Recap
Between work, writing my own novel, recapping a show I find myself exhausted on a sunday. Recapping a good drama takes time, espcially one that makes me laugh. Also, I probably should get out more as I resemble more or less an albino bat than human being at this point. Hopefully people are enjoying this show as much as I am. But without much ado, recap 3:
So, currently, I recap at the pace of a erratic snail on a slow sunday. Not because I don’t love the shows but there are a limited number of hours in the day and this post was finished at 5AM today. But it shouldn’t get in the way of your enjoyment of this Jin Yu Liang Yuan. I was surfing the net today and i found a blogger (http://www.thehungryegghead.com) who has mini-recapped all the way up to Ep. 9 the last time I went onto her blog. So please check that out! I find that the blogging community is a wonderful place and it’s always good to see everyone enjoying the same thing.
Okay. Episode 2 Recap.
I nearly died from laughing after watching the first 3 fantastic episodes of Perfect Couple. Words can not adequately describe how much fun it was to watch physical and verbal comedy done to perfection. While the first episode was slightly more introductory, the rest of them were just pure fun to watch.Tong Hua is a master of letting her readers visualize her story, which is one of the reasons why all her novels are hugely popular. Of course, her stories are always vastly complicated and always leaves the reader in a state of indecisive contentment (I will probably write more on this at the end of the recap) I want to share my joy of watching a show that I didn’t press fast forward in at all, it’s something that should be enjoyed not just by those who speak Chinese but anyone who is a fan of Tong Hua. Now I’m off to watch the next 3 episodes and will try to recap as soon as I can!
SO. I have a few TV shows that I want to see, dramas that I want to recap. They are all historically based because China has a long history of producing modern dramas that I’m not interested in or Korea/America does a lot better in. I don’t know any of the airing dates. So if I start recapping, presumably it has started airing. (Sorry, just watched Sherlock Season 3, am a bit rude due to functioning sociopathic influences.)
Episode 4 Recap
So this episode show that the bonds of sisterhood trump self preservation. Again I need more Agent X to see how good the interaction between the two leads are so I hope and pray we get to the meat of thing soon. Until I see more of the two at work, I’m gonna reserve judgment on good this drama’s gonna turn out to be.
The toughest part about being a spy is that you can’t trust anyone. In this episode, Zhong Li and her team are forced to confront their fears as the bonds of friendship are tested by the reality of the spy world.

The sexual tension between the two leads is what keeps me interested in this drama. And no one can play a magnetizing sexually charismatic character with a chip on the shoulder as well as Luo Jin, who has the bedroom eyes stare down. While the interaction between the two leads is not that much in this episode, I can honestly see why he was chosen to play the character. Roy debacle aside, Luo Jin is a really good actor who is as versatile as they come. I hope for good things from this drama.
I have been patiently waiting for this drama to come out for more than half a year. For one thing, it was rumored to be the Chinese answer to Level 7 civil servant and Mr. Mrs smith. it has Tang Yan and Luo Jin playing the lead spies (who fall in love, etc etc). I basically started dancing like a well-paid stripper when I finally found it. Yes, I have an unhealthy obsession with Luo Jin. Yes, I have been waiting for this drama like a crack addict finally getting a hit of the good stuff. Will I throw my computer out the window if I find this to be meh?
