My Amazing Boyfriend

I had such a fun time recaping this drama. If you want to read it there will be a link below. There is also going to be 2 podcasts that will be linked where my good friend, Natalia from Soju Nights, and I talk about what we thought of not only the drama series but also the finale.

The drama follows Tian Jing Zhi (Wu Qian) a famously unlucky actress, who has just broken up with her latest boyfriend. After the failed marriage proposal, she gets into a severe car accident with a truck transporting Xue Ling Qiao (Kim Tae Hwan). Due to her blood lose Ling Qiao is revived, and due her death being on the horizon, he saves her by feeding her his blood. Throughout the drama series, Jing Zhi and Ling Qiao battle their feeling for eachother while trying to track down the person who drained Ling Qiao’s blood over a hundred years ago.

This show is campy, cute and hilarious. The special effects are ridiculously bad, and most of it is overacted. The writing is good for a campy rom-com, and the pacing is done right for a show that is this long. I will warn you about 2 small things. 1: if possible DO NOT watch the intro and end credit, all the major plot points are ruined during it. 2: The ending is not appropriate for the show, and it’s what i like to call a non-ending (which is a really really bad open ending). But all in all if you have 21 hours to kill on a 28 episode show, this is something worth investing the time.

4/5

Quick recap. Thanks to Tian Jing Zhi (Wu Qian) getting into a car accident and her blood brings Xue Ling Qiao (Kim Tae Hwan) back from the dead. Li Yan Zhi (Fu Jia) and Ye Chen are looking into the mystery behind the dorman body but also the recent crimes around Jing Zhi. Chen figures out that Ling Qiao is the dormant body but promised Jing Zhi not to tell anyone. We find out that Shi Guang is Ling Qiao’s enemy and he’s using his blood to keep young. Ling Qiao left a laptop with Dong Dong to decrypt, while he and Jing Zhi go to the woods on a little vacation which is cut short because Xuan Xuan is kidnapped. Everyone figures out that Shi Guang is the one behind everything, and probably the person who kidnapped Xuan Xuan. Also both Yan Zhi and Xuan Xuan have found out that Ling Qiao is 500 years old. On to the last episode.

We’re back in the warehouse where Ling Qiao and Xuan Xuan are talking. Ling Qiao excuses himself for a second and runs away to the abductors, leaving Xuan Xuan speechless. Ling Qiao beats up the abductors once again and places them into a pile before returning to Xuan Xuan. He tells her that the police should be arriving soon. Xuan Xuan apologizes for ruining their farewell trip. He tells her, farewell trip or not, it’s important not to drag things on, because good things must come to an end. Xuan Xuan asks if they really can’t stay together.

Ling Qiao thinks back to their farewell trip when Jing Zhi asks the same thing, and came up with different ways that they could be together. She then tells him that it would be unfair to him, and it’s ok that they won’t be together. Ling Qiao asks if any fish are taking her bait, and she tells him that they aren’t and it’s like even the fish were laughing at her. Ling Qiao catches a fish and puts it in the jar before returning to his position reading and throws a rock. Jing Zhi is so happy that she caught a fish that she claims to want to try and cash a second one.

Yan Zhi and crew arrive and the abductors ask them what took them so long because they are terrified of Ling Qiao. Xuan Xuan hears them arrive and Ling Qiao her that he’ll leave first, and she asks if he’s not coming back with them. He tells her no, and says his goodbye. Ye Calls for Xuan Xuan and they hug each other after Chen makes sure she’s ok.

On the way back, Chen and Xuan Xuan hold hands while she’s explained the plan. She suddenly understands that they meant to fall into the trap and Ling Qiao was to follow the abductors. Yan Zhi tells her that’s what they planed but they hadn’t expected her father to be swapped out. Chen is grateful that Ling Qiao has a higher vantage point then them. Xuan xuan jokes that Ling Qiao was actually more useful than both of them

They bring Xuan Xuan home and she tells her mother that she can stop crying. Xuan Xuan’s mother decides to go lie down to rest. When Xuan xuan comes down, she mentions that Jing Zhi is paying more attention to her lover than her friend because she’s already gone. They all find it really odd that Jing Zhi left before they arrive.

Ling Qiao arrives to Jing Zhi’s home to find her not there, which he pouts about a little because he came to say goodbye. Ling Qiao starts to clean the house, and cooks a meal while he waits for her to arrive. Once he plates the table he gets a call from Lai Bao telling him that if he wants to see Jing Zhi alive again he should come to his location alone.

Ling Qiao arrives to the location and Lai Bao tells him that he arrived quickly, but that’s what true love causes. Ling Qiao asks him where he’s storing Jing Zhi and he shows him a video feed of her, tied to a bed. Ling Qiao asks what he wants, and Lai Bao tells him that it’s obvious. He wants him to go into the freezer and only then he will call someone to release her. Though if it makes Ling Qiao happier he’d be willing to let him see her one more time. Ling Qiao takes a chair that’s leaning against the pillar and sits down. Lai Bao tells him that he guesses he doesn’t care about Jing Zhi’s life.

Ling Qiao tells him that he used his mother’s remains 100 years ago and now, 100 years later, he’s using the same tricks. Lai Bao asks if he remember everything, which Ling Qiao simply nods in response. Lai Bao tells him, him remembering does him no good since he loves Jing Zhi, and if Lai Bao dies, so will Jing Zhi. Ling Qiao tells him not to worry as he will do what he wants. Lai Bao tells him that he finds it funny that he gets brought back to like, and is willing to die for a mere woman, which he stresses that due to his money, and the time on his hands, he could have whichever woman he wants. Ling Qiao tells him that no matter how much time, money, or number of woman he has there will never be a replacement for Jing Zhi. He mentions that a rat who lives in the sewers like himself wouldn’t understand. Lai Bao tells him that the Lai Bao that he once knew and trusted him is gone, as he was killed by him 100+ years ago. Ling Qiao admits defeat and tells Lai Bao that he should live a better life in the future and remember that innocent people are of no threat to him. He simply walks into the freezer and lies down.

Jing Zhi starts waking up and tries to free herself from her ropes but it just makes her chokes herself as there is a rope tied around her neck but that doesn’t stop her from trying.

Lai Bao calls in Professor Li once Ling Qiao enters in his stasis state. He tells the Professor to start withdrawing the blood. Li tells Lai Bao that he will become a dormant body again and once that occurs then he will remove his rubropinaland he will no longer have his ability to regenerate ever again. (I have so many issues with the science… if you want to hear me vent I’ll leave a link to my podcast talking about it at the end) Lai Bao asks if once it’s removed if the give him blood will he regenerate. Professor Li likens it to removing the plants roots and stopping it from being able to obtain water. Lai Bao tells him that he can used Ling Qiao’s blood to save his daughter so long as he transforms him. Professor Li tells him that though he will try that there is a probability that Lai Bao’s body will reject the rubrospinal and it won’t work. Lai Bao gets into Li’s space and tells him so there is a chance it won’t work, which Li confirms. Lai Bao tells him that he’s honest so he believes him, but he also believes that it’s not his time yet. So they start draining Ling Qiao’s blood.

Someone goes to get Jing Zhi who is is feeling an odd sensation that she can’t describe. They pick her up as if she were a ragdoll. She has an internal monologue describing what she’s feeling as if the string that connects her to Ling Qiao has been cut and he’s fly free like a kite. They place her one the floor outside the freezer right before Lai Bao and professor Li leave. Lai Bao tells her that she can’t save Ling Qiao like last time, and it doesn’t matter how much blood she gives him, it won’t come back to life again, then they leave.

Screenshot 2016-05-26 21.01.09

Jing Zhi snaps out of her daze with a headache, and she stumbles to her feet. She leans against the freezer door and and see’s Ling Qiao. She runs into the freezer and sees an IV in Ling Qiao’s hand. She tries to wake him to no avail, before clicking that he currently has no blood. She doesn’t want to believe what Lai Bao told her about Ling Qiao being dead. She looks around for something to cut herself with, though there is nothing around. She picks up the IV pole and smashes the window with it and then picks up a piece of glass to cut her hand.She tries to feed him the blood that is dripping out of her hand, but that doesn’t work. So she cuts it again and opens his mouth and lets it drip in. (Come on Jing Zhi, we found out at the end of episode 4 that his enzymes don’t work in the cold.) Jing Zhi starts crying and telling him that he needs to wake up, because he always promised to save her, and he needs to take her away from this place. She cries out telling him that he can’t leave her alone.

Lai Bao asks professor Li how much longer it will take. Professor Li tells him that he’s going to prep the surgery to reduce his likelihood of rejection and should take about 20 minutes, maybe a little longer. Professor Li goes into the operating room alone. A little over an hour late, Lai bao asks the add to see what’s taking so long, and they find Professor Li missing. They run into the back to find that he had also drained out all of the blood. He flips out and starts screaming about killing him, and killing his daughter first. One of his bodyguards comes and tells him that the police have arrived and they need to get out of there.

Jing Zhi had fallen against Ling Qiao in the freezer, and in her dream she hears Ling Qiao telling her to bring him home. She wakes up and suddenly remember about how his enzymes don’t work in the cold. She tells him that she’ll take him home, and they need to get out of the cold. Though at these point she’s not only suffering from hypothermia but also blood lost from he still bleeding hand. She manages to pick him up and get him just outside the freezer, where she tells him that she has no more strength. She starts falling asleep again, with her bloodied hand still on his wrist.

Screenshot 2016-05-26 21.19.35

As his body temperature rises Ling Qiao wakes up to see Jing Zhi leaning against the doorway. He looks down to their join, blood soaked, hands and he sits up. He tells Jing Zhi to not fall asleep and tries to wake her. Instead of waking however she slumps over against him. He kisses her forehead and tells her that she did good.

Screenshot 2016-05-26 21.20.58

He flashes back to before he came to get Jing Zhi and just after the phone call. Chen tells Yan zhi that he wants to contact Professor Li because he knows his personal email and knows he must be doing this against his will. Yan Zhi tells him that they have nothing to lose.  Chen tells him that he;’ worried that his family in America is probably being threatened. Yan Zhi asks for Professor Li’s address and he’ll call his contact in the american police for some help. Xuan Xuan ask her mother what actually happens and she reveals that she got a phone call from Shi Guang telling her that if she gave Jing Zhi to him that he would release her. So she drugged Jing Zhi’s glass of water and some men came to pick her up. Ling Qiao gets the phone call and goes to leave to find Yan Zhi, Chen and Xuan Xuan on the doorstep. They are trying to figure out what to go next and Ling Qiao tells them that he’ll go to save Jing Zhi because Lai Bao’s is his target. Chen tells him to not be reckless, because if he’s calling him out now that means that Professor Li has probably found a way to deal with him. Chen tells him that he’s already emailed the professor and is waiting for the response but he already made a promise in Ling Qiao’s name that if he helps them Ling Qiao will save his daughter with his blood. Ling Qiao tells him that he can’t wait for the response, he decides to go alone and Chen promises to text him when he gets the Professor’s response. Professor Li calls Chen after draining Ling Qiao blood and tells him that he didn’t remove his rubrospinal and he can still be revived. He tells him exactly where they are and where they can find Ling Qiao.

Calamari and backup arrive at the warehouse to find everyone had already vacated the premise and Professor Li hands himself over. Meanwhile, Yan Zhi, Crystal and another team investigates his other residence. While looking around, Yan Zhi tells them that he’s found blood on the back of the sofa, so this is a potential crime scene and they need to find the body.

Lai Bao goes to his boat to find his stash of blood, but finds his compartment empty. Ling Qiao calls to him and ask if this is what he’s looking for. Lai bao turns around shocked and Ling Qiao holds a flashlight on him. He tells Lai bao to take it, and throws the case over to the other couch. Lai Bao pauses for a second before grabbing the case and making a run for it, right off the boat and into the water.

Screenshot 2016-05-26 22.01.57

Lai Bao swims over to the dock and opens the case to find all of the blood drained from the vials, leaving him with no more blood. He starts screaming at Ling Qiao to give him his blood back. Ling Qiao pulls him out of the water and throws him to the ground.Lai Bao tells him to kill him because if he doesn’t he will just try and kill him, over and over again until he succeeds. Ling Qiao tells him that it’s a bad thing that he’s run out of time, and now it’s his turn to watch his blood slowly slip away. Lai Bao tells him that right now he’s Shi Guang so if he kills him he will never be able to be with Jing Zhi unless he turns her into something like him. Ling Qiao throws him and then follows up with a kick. Lai Bao starts telling him to kill him when he starts regressing back to being an old man. Ling Qiao walks away with his narration calling Lai Bao this 10 year tragedy. Ling Qiao slips in and visits Jing Zhi as she sleep. His narration is still rolling saying that he thought he had kept to his principles and respected the world. He disturbed the life cycles of many people without  permission. Though he had saved Lai Bao to fulfill his promise to his mother, it lead to the slitting of his own throat. Years later, he save Jing Zhi, to whom he owes his life and his love but fundamentally he’s the one who started this cycle of events.

Screenshot 2016-05-26 22.16.32

In The end Ling Qiao didn’t kill Lai Bao because revenge meant nothing to him anymore. Jing Zhi run down stairs that next morning to find Ling Qiao there. She runs and hugs him. His narration continues with how he wants Jing Zhi to live a short, quiet life, which is not something that he can give her. Which is his way of saying that he’s leaving her.

Screenshot 2016-05-26 22.22.47

We get a brief shot of really old Lai Bao in a hospital bed.

Jing Zhi comes home one day to find Ling Qiao is gone, however he left her his family jade plaque, and deeds to his villa. Ling Qiao wishes for her a peaceful existence. In the public eye Jing Zhi goes on a bunch of dates. Her parents are watching the news when she turns off the TV and tells them to stop, and that she’s fine. Her mother mentions that she can’t be fine because ever since she broke up with Ling Qiao she’s thinks she’s gone insane. Her father tells her that once Jing Zhi thinks it through she will get back together with yan Zhi. She tells them that Ling Qiao has left her with his family plaque and deeds to his villa and she kidnapped his pet so he’ll be back. Her parents are still worried and she run off to meet with Xuan Xuan and Chen for lunch.

Chen explains to them why the blood that Jing Zhi gave Ling Qiao didn’t work at first but worked as soon as he was outside of the freezer. He also mentions that Professor Li is very sorry about what he did, and Jing Zhi sarcastically tells him that now that he’s sorry he doesn’t have to stay in prison anymore. Xuan Xuan asks if she’s still mad at her mother because she’s also apologetic. Jing Zhi tells her that had he father been under duress he would have served Xuan Xuan up without a second thought. So that’s different.  Xuan Xuan asks her if she should really be eating that much. Jing Zhi tells her that she wouldn’t understand but when someone breaks up they eat their feelings. Xuan Xuan tells her that rather than eating her feelings she’s eating like a pregnant woman.

Jing Zhi excuses herself to the bathroom. While she’s in there she cuts her hand on the corner of the shelf and it heals right away. Then we pan to Ling Qiao who places his hand over his heart. And…. THAT IT! The end Goodbye.

I kid I kid. I’m not happy about this ending. I go into great detail in my podcast but, after how good this show has been, this almost feels like a cop out ending. Had they ended it at the hug scene or even the scene with her parents I would have said it had a nice open ending. This ending some might like the ending (and please if you do leave a comment telling me why so that people get something other than my opinion on the matter), but personally it wasn’t for me. I’m going to write up a quick review like I always do for my dramas but this is the end of the spoiler filled portion of my blog. Thank you guys so much for reading my 1500 – 3000 word recaps. It’s been a pleasure. And I’ll see you in the next post. BYE!

My Amazing Boyfriend Episode 27 Recap

Standard

4910_MyAmazingBoyfriend_Nowplay_Small

Quick recap. Thanks to Tian Jing Zhi (Wu Qian) getting into a car accident and her blood brings Xue Ling Qiao (Kim Tae Hwan) back from the dead. Li Yan Zhi (Fu Jia) and Ye Chen are looking into the mystery behind the dorman body but also the recent crimes around Jing Zhi. Chen figures out that Ling Qiao is the dormant body but promised Jing Zhi not to tell anyone. We find out that Shi Guang is Ling Qiao’s enemy and he’s using his blood to keep young. Ling Qiao left a laptop with Dong Dong to decrypt, while he and Jing Zhi go to the woods on a little vacation which is cut short because Xuan Xuan is kidnapped. Everyone figures out that Shi Guang is the one behind everything, and probably the person who kidnapped Xuan Xuan.

Ling Qiao arrives back at the house while Yan Zhi and Chen are still there. He sits down and an awkward silence falls on the group of them. Jing Zhi breaks the silence and asks where Ling Qiao had gone. He glances over at Yan Zhi before telling them that he had gone to visit Shi Guang’s apartment, and stipulates that he’s gone into hiding. Chen asks Yan Zhi if he still doesn’t believe him and he doesn’t understand why he wants him to believe him so badly. Yan Zhi thanks Ling Qiao for saving him, and Ling Qiao simply nods. The awkward silence gets unbearable and Jing Zhi breaks it again. She tells the 2 men that since they are all her ex-boyfriends they should get along. She turns to Ling Qiao and tells him since he’s her most recent ex-boyfriend she likes him that most and they other 2 should stop treating him like a monster. Jing Zhi notices that Chen is leaning on Yan Zhi and tells him that he has Xuan Xuan and should quell any romantic feeling he has for Yan Zhi and this makes the two men spring apart.

Chen chastises Jing Zhi for making a joke at a time like this. She tells them that she’s not worried because Ling Qiao has promised to save Xuan Xuan already. Yan Zhi tells them that the abductors will probably call the next day to give them instructions and he will need Ling Qiao help. Ling Qiao tells him he’ll help him as much as he can. Jing Zhi is more scared of how Xuan Xuan is feeling, and is certain she’s scared.

Shi Guang shows up with wine and set the table in front of Xuan Xuan before removing her blindfold and untying her. He mentions that she doesn’t look surprised to see him. Xuan Xuan tells him that since she figured out his secret it wasn’t hard to guess that he was behind it. Shi Guang tells her that he’s always liked her arrogant attitude. Xuan Xuan questions him as to why he’s comes, and he promises to tell her after they have a drink. So Xuan Xuan gulps down the glass of wine. Shi Guang explains that the following day he will getting the ransom and they won’t be seeing each other anymore. Since they had a relationship he  felt like he needed to say goodbye. He had planned everything differently, and how he would sacrifice himself to save her before taking the money with him to his new life. Sadly her friends discovered his secret and now he needs to change plans.

He reveals to her that though he is uncertain if it’s because he’s getting older or because he’s gotten so use to his current life, but not being with people leaves him feeling lonely. He tells her that he’s used many names over the years, that he’s forgotten most of them. He reveals however that the one that he can still remember because he’s used it the most since his mother gave it to him more than 100 years ago is Lai Bao.

Jing Zhi asks Ling Qiao if he remembers everything. He admits that he does, and though it’s not pleasant it’s better that he remembers rather than forget. Jing Zhi asks if Lai Bao was a bad kid growing up, and he admits that he wasn’t. He tells her how he gave the photo of Lai Bao and his mother to his mother who asked him a favour. She asks Ling Qiao to take care of Lai Bao after she dies; shortly there after he dies and they morn.

We hear his internal monologue that no matter who he meets, whether they are good or bad, they will always end up being a memory. As he places the photo of the son and mother pair in a box, with his jade plaque, Lai Bao storms in and crashes to the ground with a sever knife wound to his abdomen. Lai Bao’s mother’s words replay in his ears as he picks up a glass of water. He bites his tongue and drops some blood into the water before feeding it to Lai Bao. Lai Boa freaks out when he looks down and he is completely healed, and asks him what type of monster he is. Ling Qiao assures him that soon he will be leaving so he must remember to live well when he’s gone.

Screenshot 2016-05-26 15.00.46

Ling Qiao internal monologue kicked in again, saying that he would have made a different decision had he known that it would doom him to show pity to the boy. A while later Boss Sun, the man who ran the store, comes to see Ling Qiao to tell him the Lai Bao hasn’t shown up for work in a while and if he doesn’t show up the following day he will have to look for a replacement. He also mentions to Ling Qiao that there are rumors that Lai Bao has been returning home drunk almost every night. Ling Qiao goes looking for the boy because he still cares, and finds him drunk outside a bar.

Ling Qiao confronts Lai Bao and asks him when did he become a drunk, Lai Bao lashes out at him telling him it’s none of his business. Ling Qiao pushes him, and then kicks him, while telling him that he didn’t save his life so he can ruin it. Lai Bao cries to him and tells him that he believed him when he said there was nothing they could do to save his mother, but obviously there was. Ling Qiao tells him that he has his own principles to adhere to, like not messing with nature. Lai Bao blames it on the fact that he can’t die, and Ling Qiao tells him that it’s not always a good thing.

Ling Qiao starts begging Ling Qiao to turn him into the same thing that he is. He tells him that he will do anything he says just to be like him, and be able to live forever. Ling Qiao asks him what would he do if he asks him to kill someone. After a short pause Lai Bao says that he will do it. (Wrong Answer.) Ling Qiao pushes him to the ground and tells him that be can’t believe that would be his answer. He then tells him to leave his sights because if he sees him again he will kill him. Ling Qiao’s inner monologue tells us that  after 100 years of living with humans that the greed of a human’s heart is still a sharp knife for him, and he really must learn to hide.

After an unspecified amount of time, a worker from the shop comes in search of Ling Qiao telling him that Lai Bao has turned crazy. He was muttering the night before say how he could bring his mother back and dug up her grave, and brought it to the docks. Ling Qiao runs to the doc and when he finds Lai Bao he asks him where his mother’s remains are. He points to in a cold storage and then lock him in there. Again with the internal monologue, that before he notices, Lai Bao’s heart was consumed with with desire. After a while Lai Bao comes in to talk with Ling Qiao. He mentions that he should be surprised that he knows his weakness but he tells him that he told him himself. He always wanted to take Ling Qiao to see the snow in his hometown but Ling Qiao would never go because he was scared of the cold. Lai Bao told him not to blame him after his death because he brought it on himself, and then he cuts his throat.

Screenshot 2016-05-26 15.18.12

Jing Zhi was shocked that Lai Bao returned Ling Qiao’s kindness by slitting his throat and mentioned that he shouldn’t have saved him. Ling Qiao tells her that the Lai bao that he first met, the Lai Bao that slit his throat, and the Lai Bao that she knows are all different people. Ling Qiao tells her that by living a certain way, changes who you are as a person. Jing Zhi agrees with him because had they not met Ling Qiao would still be a dormant body, and had he not fallen in love with her he would have left already. Ling Qiao reminds her that he has been lying in a coffin for  years and he doesn’t knows Lai Bao has been up to.

Lai Bao asks if Xuan Xuan isn’t curious about his statement. He tells her that he’s not there to hurt her, just to talk, so she can ask whatever questions she wants. Xuan Xuan pours herself another glass of wine before chugging it. She asks if he has really been alive for 100 years. He confirms that he had, but he mentions that it’s no wonder that she’s confused since Jing Zhi never told her that he boyfriend has been alive for over 500. Xuan Xuan ask if they will never grow old, he shakes his head and tells her that Ling Qiao won’t because he’s selfish and narrow minded person so he won’t share the ability. Lai Bao tells her that he drains Ling Qiao’s blood 100 years ago and has been using it to stay young while Ling Qiao has been passed around museums. He mentions that the blood should have lasted him for 200 years but the lately he’s been needing it more and more. If he doesn’t take the blood right away be starts reverting back into an old man, and there are no symptoms before the occurrence. He’s been running out, so he wanted to get Ling Qiao out of storage to see if he could figure something out. He hadn’t planned on his his transport vehicle crashing into her unlucky girlfriend and reviving him. Xuan Xuan warns him that Jing Zhi is so unlucky that it throws people off guard a lot of the time.

Screenshot 2016-05-26 15.37.25

Xuan Xuan admits that she doesn’t understand something, if Lai Bao has lived such a long important life, Ling Qiao’s blood is losing it’s effectiveness, then it might be God’s way of warning him to stop. She admits that if she was him at this point she would just let it go. Lai Bar tells her that someone born with a silver spoon in her mouth wouldn’t understand. He asks her why did she get born with everything given to her while other children have to starve. He then asks why Ling Qiao gets to live forever while he has to die. Lai Bao tells her that his life has been hard trying to stay in the shadows living like a rat. She reminds him that he chose that life. She gets up and Lai Bao moves and she tells him to calm down because it’s not like she can hurt him.

She goes to get her purse and pulls out a deck of Tarot cards. She asks him again that he should be being reborn the following day, and he confirms it. She asks him if she could read his fortune. He tells her that he doesn’t believe in fortunes, he only believes in himself. She tells him that it couldn’t hurt, so be picks a card and tells her to take as much time as she likes to read it, because he leave. He tells her goodbye and it was a pleasure to meet her. She turns over the card and I couldn’t tell what the card was, it almost looked like birth but sometimes those hards can be misleading.

Jing Zhi gets a call from Xuan Xuan’s mother asking her for some company the next day. Ling Qiao tells her to go and keep her company. Jing Zhi tells Ling Qao that she’ll leave the next day to him to get Xuan Xuan back, and she going to bed. As she gets to the door she stops and calls to him. She tells him that she’ll keep that bedroom for him forever and the goes inside.

Yan Zhi’s team is in place when Jing Zhi’s father gets the call. The abductor tells him to get into his car and drive and he will call him again later. The call was over to quickly to be traced. They prepare to follow Xuan Xuan’s father, his car, as well has his clothing had trackers being placed in them. They leave while Jing Zhi is taking care of Xuan Xuan’s mother.

Right as Yan Zhi gets out of the house Chen tells him that he wasn’t to go with him, and he tells him absolutely not because he’s not trained. Chen grabs him by his arm and gives him that look that tells Yan Zhi he’s going, and he caves telling him he can go in the communication van. The team goes out, and everyone follows the car, the police on the ground and Ling Qiao from the rooftops.

Xuan Xuan’s mother thanks Jing Zhi for being with her, and she tells her not to worry about it. Xuan Xuan’s mother tells her that she’ll go and get Jing Zhi a glass of water, though she protests her Godmother tells her that she needs to feel useful. While she walks away she looks and Jing Zhi sadly like she’s about to do something bad.

Xuan Xuan gets directed to go to an abandoned storefront and change clothes, which he did and when he switched clothes her remembered to take the tracker. Xuan Xuan’s father’s van suddenly turns left and speeds up, and their suddenly worried that they lose him since the car is get outside of their receiving range. When they finally turn they find that the van had stopped moving.

Chen tells Yan zhi that he believes they were tricked and Yan Zhi stops the car abruptly. Yan Zhi tells the communication van to track the tracker under the name monster in the woods. He also instructs someone to send someone to check the store where Xuan Xuan’s father entered, and is just coming to after being knocked out. They speed up and stop the truck to find another driver who turns out to just be a hired driver.

The driver from the van arrives and his boss tells him that he did a good job, and now they didn’t have to trade the hostage for the money. They tell them to check the money when the car door suddenly closes. They are all confused and don’t understand what happened. Ling Qiao calls to them from behind next to Xuan Xuan. He proceeds to beat them up nicely.

The communication van tells them that Monster in the forest tracking had stopped moving, and he tells them that that’s where the abductors are going to be.

When Ling Qiao comes back after beating up the bad guys, she hands him back her phone telling him that she called her mom and told her that she is fine. Jing Zhi was in the bathroom so she couldn’t talk with her. Ling Qiao mentions that she doesn’t seem surprised and asked if Jing Zhi had told her. Xuan Xuan tells him that it wasn’t Jing zhi but actually Shi Guang . She believes that he didn’t think that she would survive so he told her everything. She also mentions that after hearing his story that she can live without doubts.  Xuan Xuan believes that Jing Zhi would bug him until he saved her. Ling Qiao agrees that Jing Zhi is really nice to her friends. Xuan Xuan asks Ling Qiao that if he’s lived for 500 years how can he put up with Jing Zhi’s nonsense.

Quick recap. Thanks to Tian Jing Zhi (Wu Qian) getting into a car accident and her blood brings Xue Ling Qiao (Kim Tae Hwan) back from the dead. Li Yan Zhi (Fu Jia) and Ye Chen are looking into the mystery behind the dorman body but also the recent crimes around Jing Zhi. Chen figures out that Ling Qiao is the dormant body but promised Jing Zhi not to tell anyone. We find out that Shi Guang is Ling Qiao’s enemy and he’s using his blood to keep young. Ling Qiao left a laptop with Dong Dong to decrypt, while he and Jing Zhi go to the woods on a little vacation which is cut short because Xuan Xuan is kidnapped.

Jing Zhi is sitting on the couch worrying when Ling Qiao comes out of his bedroom. Ling Qiao tells her to at least eat something, he even ordered pizza. Jing Zhi tells him that she doesn’t have an appetite. Ling Qiao reminds her that he promised Xuan Xuan would be ok, Ling Zhi tells him she trusts him but she’s worried it’s because of her that Xuan Xuan is in danger. She is worried that she may be cursed, and Ling Qiao tells her that it’s not because of her, and she wonders if it’s because of him, and he admits it could be a possibility. Jing Zhi tells Ling Qiao that she will call Dong Dong to tell him he needs to finish the decryption tomorrow.

Yan Zhi is at Xuan Xuan’s house waiting for the phone call. He tries to get Xuan Xuan’s mother to go to bed since the abductor will only call the last day.

While Shi Guang is driving he looks down at his arm at a scar. He complains that even while drinking Ling Qiao’s blood, it can’t take away his scar. He is determined to kill him and can’t wait for his next chance.

Dong Dong is working on the laptop at Jing Zhi’s house , when Ling Qiao asks how much longer it will take him. Dong Dong tells him to relax because the 1st document is almost complete. He admits that it’s harder than he initially thought it would be. The 1st document is finished and they are looking at the fake photo. Jing Zhi mentions that the original photo must be on the computer and Ling Qiao tells him to continue working on it.

Shi Guang is sitting at home when Detective Zhang comes in, he offers him a beer and tells him to sit. Shi Guang tells him he must be suffering. Zhang tells him that he’s come for his  money and then he’s leaving. Shi Guang gets up and tells him that he still needs his money to save Xuan Xuan, and he turns around holding a gun. He tells him that he messed up the  job and he expects payment. Zhang tells him that he should have seen Shi Guang betraying him. He tells him that if he dies he has some files that will be sent to the cops and Ling Qiao. Zhang reminds him that killing someone and framing another are both death sentences.

We get to see the entire progression of Zhang finding that Shi Long hired the assisine, then hiring the same one to kill Jing Zhi. We see the assassin setting the storage room on fire, Zhang switching the car freshner, and finally the car chase where the car explodes. We then see Zhang tampering with the assassin’s files with the fake photo.

Shi Guang tells him that his confession will mean nothing since the cops need evidence to solve cases. Zhang asks him if he remembers how he found the assassin in the first place.

Dong Dong decrypts the 2nd file and it’s the dash cam from the Shi Guang’s car from the day of the accident. Jing Zhi doesn’t understand why he didn’t give the video to the police, and is really confused about everything. Ling Qiao tells Dong Dong to get the last file decrypted.

Shi Guang realizes that he kept the video. Zhang tells him that the police will be curious as to why he didn’t hand it over after the accident. Shi Guang tells him that it’s simple, he stole his event tracker and planted evidence to frame Shi Long, it still has nothing to do with him. Shi Guang tells him that he shouldn’t have come back, Zhang tells him it was only for his reward. Shi Guang offers either his bullet or police cuffs. Zhang tells him that if he believes the video won’t do anything, then how about the picture. Shi Guang tells him that the picture was destroyed there, and Zhang asks him if he’s sure.

We get walked through the villa murders and Zhang looking for the photo.When he finds it he messes up the house. Before he goes to see Shi Guang he takes a photo of the original photograph as a record. Shi Guang isn’t happy about the news.

Jing Zhi complains that it’s taking Dong Dong too much time, he tells her that if she doesn’t like it she could do it herself. Jing Zhi wines to Ling Qiao that Dong Dong is bullying her and he should say something. He tells her that Dong Dong is her assistant so why would he say anything. She winds up to hit him when he announces that he’s finished. He pulls up the original picture and they all stare in confusion when the see Shi Guang in the photo.

Shi Guang reminds Zhang that he hates when people threaten him and presses the gun into his jaw. Zhang tells him that he hates death even more and what does he think would happen to him if Ling Qiao finds out.

Ling Qiao calls Shi Guang under the pretense of seeing if there has been any leads in the case to find Xuan Xuan. Dong Dong then calls another number which allows Ling Qiao to hear the vibration while on the phone with Shi Guang. Dong Dong and Ling Qiao hang up at the same time. Jing Zhi asked him who did he asks Dong Dong to call and he admits that he asked him to call his enemy.

Shi Guang checks his phone once he is off the phone and recognized Dong Dong’s phone number. Zhang promises to keep his secret, and Shi Guang tells him that Ling Qiao already knows and pulls the trigger.

Yan Zhi is at his desk when Calamari tells him that at the time the Xuan Xuan stepped off the elevator, someone on the 5th floor was receiving a courier package. Yan Zhi is confused that she got off because she saw a courier. Calamari assures him that he will be talking with the courier service that afternoon. He also tells him that they received a fax from the international police with the account number that paid the doctor. Yan Zhi looks at the paper and then pulls out the paper that has the account number of the person who paid the research lab, and it’s the same number. Yan Zhi asks call if he still can’t get through to Chen, and Calamari confirms that.

Chen finishes showering at the lab, and turns on the TV for some background noise. He hears about Xuan Xuan’s abduction and calls Yan Zhi right away. Yan Zhi chastises him for not answering his phone earlier. Chen asks if there are any leads, and Yan Zhi tells him no, since the abductor didn’t call. Yan Zhi confirms that he found out something unrelated. He tells him the Shi Guang is an imposter, and the same account that paid the doctor who faked the paternity test also funded the lab. Yan zhi tells him that the only logical conclusion is that Shi Guang is behind the abduction. Chen tells Yan Zhi that 2 days  ago he received blood from the dormant body and he had turned off his phone to continue his research. Yan Zhi tells Chen that Xuan Xuan had sent him the sample and Shi Guang probably found out that she took a vial and abducted her. Chen tells Yan Zhi that he has to call Jing Zhi, he asks why and Chen promises to tell him later, but for now he just needs to find evidence. Chen goes to his car, realizes he forgot his keys and hails a cab.

Jing Zhi is pacing while looking at the picture while Ling Qiao stares at his juice. Jing Zhi mentions that his enemy was someone so close and stipulates that it must hurt. Ling Qiao tells her that because he was Xuan Xuan’s fiancé he never suspected him. He also thought that the person who used his blood should be healthy, and since Shi guang was so sick it never crossed his mind. Ling Qiao wonders what he was researching if not for his illness. Ling Qiao feels ashamed that he was so easily manipulated, he thinks back to one of the many misleading conversations he had with Shi Guang. Jing Zhi tells him that Shi Long did fit better to the profile rather that a philanthropist like Shi Guang. Ling Qiao thanks her for trying to make him feel better. Jing Zhi did wonder why he hired someone to kill her in a burning building. Ling Qiao tells her the purpose wasn’t to kill her, but rather to distract him and think that she was the target for the car chase, and to lead him to the fake photo. Ling Qiao jokes and tells her that looking back the banquet was held in her honour. Jing Zhi reminds him that had he come 1 minute later should would have been able to smell her own burning flash. Jing Zhi suddenly asks Ling Qiao how he knew the person in the photo was Shi Long, and he tells her it was because of the press conference that she shared. Jing Zhi realizes that she was one of Shi Guang’s  chess pieces because he asked her to post it. Shi Guang goes to tell Ling Qiao to pluck off his head when he catches him but he finishes her sentence because Dong Dong already told him the same thing.

Chen calls Jing Zhi and tells her that he’s coming over and about 15 minutes away. Jing Zhi tries to get Ling Qiao to leave and he refuses because he didn’t do anything wrong. She tells him that it’s because she’s afraid of a fight and Ling Qiao assures her that he can take him. She tells him that she is more afraid that he’ll kill him. Ling Qiao asks why Chen is coming over and she tells him she’s not sure but he said something about knowing who kidnapped Xuan Xuan and wants to talk. Ling Qiao wonders if Shi Guang actually abducted Xuan Xuan,  and he realizes that it’s a very bad thing. He then realizes that if Chen knows his identity than maybe he’s figured out Shi Guang’s as well.

The driver of the cab asks Chen if he’s done anything, and he tells him no and then asks him why. the cab driver tells him that the silver van has been following him. Chen tells him that he’s just scaring himself. Finally the cabby pulls over and asks him to leave because he’s worried about the van. He agrees and gets out. Sure enough the silver van stops and 2 men get out. Chen runs and uses his surroundings to get away for a bit, however he finally gets cornered. He’s preparing for his death when Ling Qiao comes in and saves him, and looks good while doing it. Chen thanks him for saving him.

Chen arrives to Jing Zhi house with Yan zhi, which surprises her. She tells him that she sent Ling Qiao to pick him up, and asked if he passed him. Chen tells her he did meet with Ling Qiao but then met up with Yan Shi after. Yan Zhi asks Jing Zhi if what Chen is telling her is accurate, but she doesn’t speak up. Chen tells him that had he come earlier he would have seen a monster in person, he quickly back tracks and uses Ling Qiao’s name after Jing Zhi glares at him. Yan Zhi asks her to say something, but she tells him she has nothing to add. Chen explains that he knows who drained his blood 100 years ago and who also kidnapped Xuan Xuan. Jing Zhi tells them that they just found out about that.

Ling Qiao goes to Shi Guang’s apartment and knocks, there is no answer. He gets into his apartment via the balcony. He looks around and finds the secret door and switch. He opens it and walks inside finding a fridge that once held his blood and an empty vial. He takes a little blood and his memories return to him.

He’s at home reading when he hear people running from the military huddled up against his door. The mother is telling the sun to go on without. Before the pair gets to a decision Ling Qiao opens the doors and brings them in before the solder see them. He show them to his backyard when 10+ families are already staying and a room is being cleared for them. He advises them that their rent will be taken out of their salary. They go to thank him but he tells him not to because Ling Qiao was the one to bring them and he has an excellent judge of character. Since the mother is excellent at embroidery and Lai Boa can help out at the shop as an errand boy. Lai Boa looks to where Ling Qiao had just been standing and he was already gone.

Screenshot 2016-05-26 12.42.25

Through the flashback we see that Ling Qiao, Lai Boa, and Lai Boa’s mother had a very good relationship for many years. When Lai Boa’s mother asks where Ling Qiao’s family is, he admits that they past away long ago. Lai Boa’s mother complains that family is very important, but thanks to him they are still alive. Lai Boa tells Ling Qiao that he will me his servant forever, and when he asks what will happen when he has a wife, he tells him he’ll ask her to also be his servant. Lia Boa’s mother tells Ling Qiao if there is ever anything that he needs in the future to just tell them.

For 10 years Ling Qiao watched Lai Boa grow up, and his mother grow older. They were all together when he bought his first camera. Lai Boa mentions that he had heard that cameras capture the soul, his mother tells him that Ling Qiao told them it only captures a picture, and he wouldn’t hurt them. Lai Boa asks how long a picture would last, and Ling Qiao tells him that if properly cared for it could lasts for more than a hundred years.

Screenshot 2016-05-26 13.00.35

Suddenly Lai Boa’s mother contracts tuberculosis and the doctor tells him there isn’t anything they can do. Lai Boa tries to beg him to get help from his American friends and he tells him that TB is very hard to cure. He tells him that it’s best just to make his mother comfortable.

Ling Qiao arrived back at Jing Zhi’s house while Yan Zhi and Chen are still there.

Quick recap. Thanks to Tian Jing Zhi (Wu Qian) getting into a car accident and her blood brings Xue Ling Qiao (Kim Tae Hwan) back from the dead. Li Yan Zhi (Fu Jia) and Ye Chen are looking into the mystery behind the dorman body but also the recent crimes around Jing Zhi. Chen figures out that Ling Qiao is the dormant body but promised Jing Zhi not to tell anyone. We find out that Shi Guang is Ling Qiao’s enemy and he’s using his blood to keep young. Ling Qiao left a laptop with Dong Dong to decrypt, while he and Jing Zhi go to the woods on a little vacation.

Xuan Xuan is at the apartment, worried since she just saw Shi Guang had just entered into the apartment and when she calls his phone she hears it ring in the apartment. We see Shi Guang crawl and faint in the foyer. Xuan Xuan is worried that something happened to Shi Guang since his assistant told her he wasn’t feeling well so she calls Yan Zhi. She tells him his suspicion and he tells her he’s on his way.

Jing Zhi comes in with a small number of branches, she complains that she tried really hard since there aren’t many dry branches. Ling Qiao asks if she’s hungry, she tells him that she is and wondered if she came just to make a fool of herself. Ling Qiao tells her that they can get more wood after they eat, and asks if she brought anything to eat. She tells him she does if barbeque sauce counts. He smirks and gets up, he tells her to wait there until he gets back. Ling Qiao goes around picking berries (that look suspiciously like cherry tomatoes), before returning to the cave. While Jing Zhi is alone she realizes how boring and sad it is to live in a place where you can’t speak with anyone. She hugs her knees to herself, the sad realization sinking in. Ling Qiao comes back and tells her to not worry since it’s just a passing cloud. Jing Zhi springs up and hugs him forcibly from behind. She apologize for the fact that because Chen found out he will be forced to live alone without human interactions. She promises that she will never leave him alone for as long as she lives. Ling Qiao turns around and hugs her tightly in his arms. He finds that her words resonated deep within his soul because he had said those same words millions of times over the last 500 years, and now he finally has received a response.

We’re back at Shi Guang’s apartment, and Xuan Xuan is pacing in the hallway when Yan Zhi arrives. Xuan Xuan tells him that there is still no response from inside the apartment. Yan Zhi tells her not to worry, the department lockpick starts work on the lock and the ambulance is already on their way. Right as the ambulance arrives, the door is opened and they enter. They find Shi Guang laying face down on the floor. They take him away and Yan Zhi tells Xuan Xuan that he has to return to the office. Xuan Xuan tells him that she’ll be ok she just needs to contact Shi Guang’s assistant.

After everyone leave, Xuan Xuan calls his assistant and notices some sweat and crawl marks on the ground. She follows the trail to the ornamental pots on the entrance way table. She turns the lid of one of them and a secret door opens. She walks in and finds a room with a fridge on the wall containing vials of blood and an empty vial on the ground.

Shi Guang’s phone starts beeping in his pocket while he’s in the ambulance. The ambulance attendants are confused but they go to pull out the phone but Shi Guang wakes up and grabs her wrists. He takes the phone and sits up, which shocks him. He remembers arriving home and being disorientated. He managed to crawl to the secret door and get into his blood supply. He chugged a vial and falls unconscious briefly. When he came to he heard them coming in so he splayed himself on the ground. Shi Guang looks to his phone and watched Xuan Xuan go into his vault and take a vial of blood.

Xuan Xuan leaves and tries to call Chen, however he is currently teaching.

Next morning, Ling Qiao and Jing Zhi are in bed, and Ling Qiao is watching her sleep. He brushes hair away from her face and she shifts in her sleep. Once she settles again he starts playing with her hand until she rolls over. He smiles down at her before getting out of bed.

Screenshot 2016-05-23 13.03.51

Jing Zhi wakes up and looks out at the beautiful view and closes her eyes again thinking that she is having a wonderful dream. She realizes that she isn’t dreaming and she gets out of bed and takes in the view.She looks down at her clothes and notice she isn’t wearing what she was wearing last night, and she smiles thinking that Ling Qiao helped her change into the clothes. She walks back in and walks straight into Ling Qiao. She tells him that it’s good that she isn’t any other actress or else her implants. Ling Qiao checks her nose and tells her it’s all good.

Ling Qiao asks why Jing Zhi is so agitated, and she tells him that she woke up in a strange room, alone, and not in her own clothes. He tells her that he helped her change last night because her clothes got wet. She asks if that was all, he confirms it. She asks him where they were and he tells her that they are at a mountain resort that can only be accessed by helicopter or by rock climbers. He tells her that if he can’t live in society this is the only type of place that he can live, so far withdrawn from society. Jing Zhi comments that it reminds her of a fairy house.

They are having breakfast and Ling Qiao serves red wine. (Hey it’s vacation, standard rules need not apply) Jing Zhi can’t believe he fooled her, and that she learnt all those survival skills for no reason. Ling Qiao smiles and apologizes for fooling her, but also thanks her for worrying. Jing Zhi is shocked because no matter how much she screamed and yelled previously he never apologized. Ling Qiao gets up from his chair, takes a steps and then kneels in front of Jing Zhi. He admits that he was wrong, she wasn’t terribly unlucky but instead she was his gift from the Gods. She has given him so many fond memories that he will never be able to forget her. He places his forehead on hers, and her eyes start watering. He pulls away and sit back down.

Screenshot 2016-05-23 13.19.27

Jing Zhi has an internal monologue where she wonders if there will be another woman in the future that will be terribly unlucky and end up loving him. She also completes the thought that she mentioned to Ling Qiao in the beach. Immortality is still scary, but for her the idea of leaving Ling Qiao live his life alone scares her far more.

Xuan Xuan arrives at the university determined to talk with Chen. She parks her car and head into the research wing, and… she gets kidnapped. Chen tries to called Xuan Xuan but he phone is off. He briefly wonders why she isn’t answering, but brushes it off to her being busy. Chen’s assistant is arguing with a courier deliver to allow her to sign for the package. Chen arrives, signs for it and finds out that it’s a vial of blood.

Jing Zhi is sitting outside on the swing when Ling Qiao comes out with a cup of coco. Jing Zhi takes a sip and tells him he added salt to the coco. Jing Zhi tells him that it’s funny that his cooking is the absolute worst but she’s willing to eat it because he made it. He recites the saying that you’d be willing to eat arsenic for the person you love. She wonders how many people he’s fed arsenic to over the last 500 years.

Jing Zhi gets serious all of a sudden and starts going through the last 3 relationships. Her 6th boyfriend is in love with her best friend and somehow caught up with her 7th boyfriend. Her 8th boyfriend kissed her 7th boyfriend and is a huge fan of her best friend. She suddenly wants to get struck by lightning. Ling Qiao seems confused and asks when did he kiss Yan Zhi, and Jing Zhi asks if he didn’t save Yan Zhi, and she bit her tongue. Ling Qiao tells her that he used a needle because he gets the most concentrated amount of enzymes that way. Jing Zhi jumps up and ask if he could have saved her without kissing her. He tells her he could have but no one carries a needle around at all times. He admits that funnelling the blood in through his mouth was the most convenient way to pass blood along. Jing Zhi gets mad and storms away, while Ling Qiao is laughing.

Shi Guang is released from the hospital, and his assistant leaves him with the document that he required. Inside the envelope there is a new passport for him.

Jing Zhi and Ling Qiao are at the river for a peaceful afternoon. Ling Qiao is sitting and reading while Ling Qiao is setting up a trap for some fish. Ling Qiao asks her if she’s depending on that for lunch, and she tells him of course. Ling Qiao jokes that with her luck, even in a mountain she would be eating air and drinking dry water. Jing Zhi asks him to hold off making fun of her for a little while at least until she actually failed. She asks Ling Qiao where he expects to be in the future, because she was planning on expanding her career to hollywood, so she would be travelling all over the work and would love for them to meet up for lunch if they are ever in the same area. Ling Qiao asks why she would want to expand since she is struggling to be a 2nd rate star in China. She tells him that she’s been working hard, and he jokes there are perks to being a wallflower. He tells Jing Zhi that he bought the villa that he was looking at since his old place was turned into a historical site. Jing Zhi tells him that he’s made the right choice. She tells him that she thinks something is off because her eye keeps twitching and Ling Qiao tells her not to give it much thought.

Chen stays at the lab all night examining and running test on the blood. The next morning he tries to call Xuan Xuan but her phone is still off. His assistant comes in and hands him a cup of coffee. She asks if he’s ok since he didn’t go home the night before. He tells her she’s fine but bounces some ideas off her about the blood. He receives a scam call about winning the lottery and he wonders why people keep trying to trick the same people. He turns off his phone.

Xuan Xuan’s mother calls Yan Zhi and tells him that Xuan Xuan was kidnapped. Yan Zhi comes over and watches the video that was sent to Xuan Xuan’s mother. The kidnappers are requesting 100 million eun. Yan Zhi asks if she’s already contacted Shi Guang, which she admits it slipped her mind. He tells her he’s probably got a video  too since the ransom was directed to both of the companies. Calamari calls Yan Zhi and tells him that Xuan Xuan was kidnapped and the video was uploaded online.

Shi Guang arrives at his office building and gets swarmed by the media asking about his feelings about Xuan Xuan’s abduction. He tells her that he’s already told his secretary to sell his things at low prices to get the money together. He pleads to a camera to not hurt Xuan Xuan.

Calamari found Xuan Xuan’s car at the university and Yan Zhi automatically thinks that she had gone to see Chen. He asks if Calamari tried to call him and he admits that he did but he didn’t pick up however his assistant told him that he was in the lab all night and had just gone to sleep. Yan Zhi tells Calamari to pull the security footage of Shi Guang’s apartment building.

Jing Zhi is looking at the 2 fish in a fishbowl that she caught. She wonders out loud how they got into her bowl, and Ling Qiao tells her that it’s due to her bad luck. Jing Zhi tells her future boyfriends will thank him for how he’s treated her. Ling Qiao jokes that her boyfriend schedule is busier than her work. Jing Zhi tells him that the best way to get other a current relationship is to hurry into a new one, which she is planning on doing. Ling Qiao tells her not to dare, and Jing Zhi asks if he wants to control her. Ling Qiao laughs and reaches around her to grab the remote to turn on the TV. Jing Zhi places Ling Qiao’s hand on her stomach and jokes about being pregnant with his kid and she’ll have a mini monster running around. He tells her to stop talking nonsense. She gets up and goes to eat when she hears about Xuan Xuan’s abduction.

Yan Zhi and Calamari are checking the footage of when Xuan Xuan leaves and she acts a little off. She gets off at the 5th floor momentarily and then gets because on. Yan zhi can’t figure out why she would have gotten off on the 5th floor. Calamari suggests that she might have seen someone she knows when she accidently got out the first time.

Jing Zhi calls Yan Zhi as soon as she has reception and tells him that they need to find Xuan Xuan. Yan Zhi tells her not to worry he’s working on it. He tells her that once she gets home she shouldn’t go out along. Jing Zhi agrees with him and tells him she’ll be waiting for his good news.

Jing Zhi starts imagining the worst and Ling Qiao tells her that he believes that Xuan Xuan will be fine. Ling Qiao grabs her hand to give her moral support. Jing Zhi warns Ling Qiao that if Xuan Xuan is seriously injured that she’ll force him to do what he hates doing. She also adds on that he was right, humans are greedy. Ling Qiao tells her that he wouldn’t do it for her, and to remember that he is her biggest fan. Jing Zhi rests her head on Ling Qiao shoulder.

Even though she knows that it’s over, if she sees even a little hope she grasps on to it. She tells him that she doesn’t want him to be like her, so she wants to change the topic and enjoy dinner.

Ling Qiao is sitting in the room next to them, listening. Yan Zhi gets a phone call telling him that Shi Long was spotted and will be flying out the next day at 5 in the evening.

Shi Long is driving to the airport while Ling Qiao follows. Yan Zhi’s team swarm the airport on the look out for Zhi Long. Once Shi Long parks and gets out of the car, Detective Zhang comes out of the shadows wielding a knife. He manages to stab him, and Ling Qiao pulls him off of him. Zhang, being the coward that he is, runs away and Ling Qiao squats next to the man. Shi Long asks him to save him, but Ling Qiao asks if he remembers him. Will mad he picks the man up by his throat.

Yan Zhi and Cal decide to check the Parking lot, where they find Shi Long on the ground conscience and Ling Qiao is already gone. They rush him to the hospital. The doctor tells Yan Zhi that Shi Long will be just fine however he will not be able to talk to him until they move him to a room. When Yan Zhi can, he does to see Shi Long who thanks him for saving him, but he will not talk until his lawyers arrive. So Yan Zhi does the best thing he can and leave a police officer to guard the door.

That night a fight breaks out further down the hall and a nurse comes to get the policeman for extra strength. Zhang sneaks in with a use of a doctor’s coat, HE goes to kill him again with a rope. Shi Long tries to run away but his injury hurts so he get stuck Zhang catches him. He tries to kill him with a rope when Ling Qiao shows up again to save him. It intrigues him that  Zhang keeps trying to kill Shi Long, and so goes after him. With what little strength that Shi Long has he crawls to the door way where the security guard was.

Ling Qiao re-examines the photo of Shi Long and Jing Zhi’s. Ling Qiao notices the discrepancy in the tiles of the ground. Ling Qiao gets a phone call from Dong Dong and he had sent it to some Photoshop experts and they  deemed that the photo was edited. Sadly Ling Qiao mentions that he already knows that he’s been tricked. Dong Dong tells him that when he finds the person than he needs to decapitate him. Dong Dong asks if he really broke up with Jing Zhi, and Ling Qiao asks if he needed to report to him now. Dong Dong likens his tone to Jing Zhi and mentions that they are perfect together, and Ling Qiao tells him he’s hanging up.

Calamari and Yan Zhi are reviewing the security footage and the find Detective Zhang running away from the room. Yan Zhi goes to get an arrest order for Zhang

Ling Qiao breaks into Zhan’s office and starts looking for clues. He notices a laptop charger, but not the laptop so he starts to look through the drawers and finds it. Right as he does he has he hears the police sirens, so he gets out of there.

Jing Zhi is sitting in Dong Dong’s apartment scrolling through her phone while Dong Dong plays his new video game. The doorbell rings when she goes to get it, she doesn’t look up and starts talking to Ling Qiao as if he is the pizza deliver boy. Ling Qiao asks why she’s here and she finally looks up and is stunned. In a broken sentence she tells him the Dong Dong has a new game. He tells her he’s looking for him and she invites him in. Dong Dong asks if the pizza arrived when Ling Qiao hits him in the head. Dong Dong is happy but he tries to show his loyalty to Jing Zhi while talking back to Ling Qiao which just makes him laugh. Jing Zhi tells him to stop, they are still friends even if they aren’t lovers anymore. Dong Dong perks up with that and clears a place for Ling Qiao to sit and brings tea.

Ling Qiao and Jing Zhi sit awkwardly next to each other and Ling Qiao side glances at her quickly before returning is attention to Dong Dong. He hands him the computer and tells him that he needs to get some files off of it. Dong Dong asks if he wants file recovery or the encrypted files, and Ling Qiao tells him both but to start with the encrypted files first. Dong Dong starts getting excited and then asks if he is going to be arrest for doing this. Ling Qiao tells him to not worry about it since the owner of the laptop is wanted for attempted murder. Dong Dong goes to his desk to open up the computer.

Jing Zhi asks if he found hi enemy yet and he tells her he hasn’t but he is close, and then he asks if she doesn’t want him to. She tell him that it’s more that she doesn’t want him to be in trouble because he helped her a lot. He tells her that this make him very happy because couples come to hate each other, and they had a high possibility of doing that. Ling Qiao requests that they remains friends. Jing Zhi says that Ling Qiao must hate her a little after everything she’s said and done, and for not every really listening. Ling Qiao tells her that he has never hated her, which makes Jing Zhi happy and she tells him that means they can really start over.

Dong Dong tells the pair that he found an encrypted file and it will take some time to decrypt. So Ling Qiao and Jing Zhi leave the apartment to let him work. They walk to the intersection and we have a little awkward parting with them going their separate ways. Jing Zhi walks a few slow steps after Ling Qiao heads the opposite direction before turning around and Ling qiao is right there. He asks if she’s free to spend some time with him.

Yan Zhi and Crystal go to the hospital and talk with Shi Long. He asks why he isn’t being interviewed at the station, and Yan Zhi tells him he would love to interview him there but his wounds wouldn’t allow it. Shi Long admits to hiring an assassin to kill Shi Guang but as they can see if he doesn’t get rid of Shi Guang, Shi Guang will get rid of him. Yan Zhi starts asks about the fire and the villa murders while Shi Long admits to knowing nothing about it. Yan Zhi tells Shi Long that he has a reason to kill Shi Guang, because he inherited the business over him, but he doesn’t know why Shi Guang would want to kill him. Shi Long tells him that he’s an imposter, and he believes the paternity test was faked. He tried to find the doctor after the test but he had emigrated to australia and then disappeared. He tells them that he will take back what is his.

The previous scene was accompanied with a very slow scene of Shi Guang getting dressed and then Professor Li coming into the room.

Jing Zhi thought that Ling Qiao was going to introduce him to a friend, yet they just went back to the beach where he always goes. She worries about how she looks and wonders if she should have touched up her makeup, though she reminds herself that his friend is probably another monster. Ling Qiao tells her that hi friends has come because the can’t see anyone and accuses him of having an imaginary friend, but Ling Qiao changes her line of sight lower and she sees the turtle. Ling Qiao tells her that he’s over 100 years old and was once his pet, and his name is Oceanic. He was surprised that he was still around and recognized him when he returned. Jing Zhi squats down and introduces herself. She asks the turtle to waive his right leg if he understands her, which he does which shocks Jing Zhi.

Ling Qiao snaps her out of her stupper after pressing a beer can to her cheek. She asks if he saw the same thing she did and he confirmed, she then asks howmuch does so not know about him, and he admits a lot. She compares their lives to 2 classics works. Her’s is Alice in Wonderland, and his is Classic of mountains and seas. Ling Qiao tells her that he likes those books, and she tells him that they are ridiculous. She asks him though that can Alice go back to living a normal life after experiencing Wonderland. She tells him that once he’s gone she’s go back to living her insignificant life full of bad luck. Ling Qiao ask if she thinks her life is boring than other people must live in dead water, though he assures her that living a short, boring, normal life is good. But she pushes back that’s only because he’s immortal that he thinks that. She tells him that being immortal is still scary but there is one thing that scare her more. When he asks what she won’t tell him.

She turns around and teases him, reminding him that he once said that if anyone found out that he would whisk her away to the forest and it got her excited to fish, and survive off the land. Ling Qiao asks her if she really wants to live a caveman lifestyle and she tells him it’s not that. He’s come to her house so she wants to live where he would eventually live. Jing Zhi tells him to consider it their break up tri and they are going to leave the following day.

Jing Zhi texts Dong Dong and tells him that she will be away in the forest for the next few days so he can take his time decrypting the files.

Xuan Xuan goes to visit Shi Guang at work but finds out that he isn’t in. His secretary tells her that he hasn’t been feeling well lately so anything that needs his signature she drops off at home. She offers to contact him but she tells her to not worry. She tries to call Shi Guang herself but his phone is off, so instead she calls Jing Zhi to have tea with her. Jing Zhi apologizes and tells her that she’s heading to the woods for a few days. They chat and Xuan Xuan tells Jing Zhi about cancelling her engagement which makes Jing Zhi happy. Ling Qiao tells Jing Zhi that she arrives and she disconnect with Xuan Xuan.

When they get off the bus they are in the middle of the forest and she asks Ling Qiao where to next. He asks her if she remembers her flying position, which she is more than happy to get into. He picks her up and brings them to an amazing clearing. Jing Zhi pulls out an umbrella and tells Ling Qiao that she brought swimsuits, and he teases her into treating this like a vacation. She simply smiles and Ling Qiao tells her they need to find shelter, food and wood for fire.  Jing Zhi delegates and they are off to get stuff done.

Calamari tells Jing Zhi that the doctor they were looking for has infact disappeared. The Doctor got a large sum of money right before doing the paternity test from an international wire. Yan Zhi says that he will put in a request for international help.

Shi Guang is in his car, which is stuck in traffic when Ling Qiao’s blood starts wearing off. He goes to opens his stash to find it empty. Shi Guang is only a block away so he tells his driver that he will walk. Part by Part he starts to revert back to his original form. He stumbles, crawls and claws his way to his apartment. At the same time Xuan Xuan is also making her way to his apartment and arrives just as Shi Guang closes the door. She thinks it’s lucky but as as she tries to get him to answer the door he doesn’t. Xuan Xuan calls him and hears his phone inside which makes her start worrying.

My Amazing Boyfriend Episode 23 Recap

Standard

Quick recap. Thanks to Tian Jing Zhi (Wu Qian) getting into a car accident and her blood brings Xue Ling Qiao (Kim Tae Hwan) back from the dead. Li Yan Zhi (Fu Jia) and Ye Chen are looking for the now missing body. Jing Zhi and Ling Qiao start living together and falling in love. Ling Qiao is getting closer to finding his enemy after bugging Detective Zhang’s phone. After Ling Qiao and Jing Zhi get stuck in a freezer together they seem to be getting closer. However when Jing Zhi finds out that Yan Zhi has cancer her constant pestering drives a rift between them. Ling Qiao finally agrees to save Yan Zhi, however what will this cost the couple?

Ling Qiao decides that if he is going to leave he best leave quickly, and get some help.

Jing Zhi looks in the mirror and sees her dark circles and wonders how she’s going to be able to film looking the way she looks. She tells herself that she has to stop acting like this and she has to live her life to the fullest. She squeezes the toothpaste onto the toothbrush and pauses briefly remembering Ling Qiao. She absent mindedly wonders if Ling Qiao has brushed his teeth over the last few days.

Detective Zhang  gets a new phone and thinks back to his encounter at the tea house. The second man came in and showed him the telephone number. Zhang pulls out his address book and compares the number to Ling Qiao’s and realizes that he was followed. Zhang calls Lai Bao and tells him he has received a new phone and explains that he must have been bugged when he was knocked out.

Yan Zhi goes to Chen’s lab and starts reading his lab reports, and Chen admits that he didn’t think that he would be back. Yan Zhi admits that he came to get some inspiration. Chen asks if Yan Zhi can even understand his lab reports, which he admits that he can’t but the t the scientific method is still valid way of investigating. Yan Zhi puts down the report to go to the washroom, and Chen asks if he got his inspiration which he confirms he did. What Yan Zhi is out of the room, Chen goes through Yan Zhi’s papers and starts reading his reports and Yan Zhi’s mad when he comes back to see that. He tells him he’s not suppose to read that and it’s still confidential. Chen tries to pull the fact that he’s Jing Zhi’s ex-boyfriend  so he has the right to know. Yan Zhi take the file that Chen was reading when he came into the room, but Chen picks up another one and starts leafing through it. Yan Zhi tries to get it back from him, but Chen plays keep away.

They are in an awkward position (see below) when Xuan Xuan comes in. She is slightly shocked, but clears her throat and they jump apart when they notice her. Chen starts to explain it’s not what she thinks, but she tells him she hasn’t said anything. Yan Zhi asks why she’s there and she tells them that they had to re shoot some scenes on campus so she thought she should come visit. She mentions that Jing Zhi is also there and if Yan Zhi has time maybe he could go console her since she’s heart broken. The two men are shocked to hear she’s heart broken and Xuan Xuan realized that she shouldn’t have said anything.

Jing Zhi is sitting in her van trying to figure out what to text Ling Qiao. She cycles through concern for his oral hygiene, to being mad about him not texting her, to thinking of tricking him that her father has come to visit. She is so caught up that she simply grabs the coffee that is handed to her and doesn’t look up even with the bumpy start. She tells Dong Dong that they shouLd go out drinking. Yan Zhi answers that if she wants to go to a bar he’ll go with her. Jing Zhi looks up surprised and asked where Dong Dong was. He admits that he sent him away at the campus. Yan Zhi mentions that she wanted to go to a bar so which one does she want to go to. She tells him she would prefer to go home, since she just said that she wanted to go to the bar haphazardly.

Ling Qiao goes to the house and finds it empty, so he wanders around. Ling Qiao cleans up some tissues that had fallen on the ground in the living room. He wanders into his room and notices that Jing Zhi’s posters have been switched out to Xuan Xuan’s. Ling Qiao hears Yan Zhi and Jing Zhi enter the house and he stays hidden, listening to their conversation.

Yan Zhi gets Jing Zhi a glass of water and asks if she’s ok. She turns to him and asks if something seems off because she’s fine. Yan Zhi tells her that even if Ling Qiao is gone, he will still protect her. Even when he was sick he always tried to protect her and even if she won’t come back to him, he’ll still protect her. They both hear a noise coming from Ling Qiao’s room and Yan Zhi wants to take a look but Jing Zhi stops him saying it’s probably a stray cat, so she’d rather go. When she checks she’s shocked to find Ling Qiao standing there, she calls back that it’s nothing and heads back out. She tells Yan Zhi not to worry, it was just a cold hearted cat that has already left. She asks Yan Zhi to leave so she can take a bath and a nap and practically pushes him out the door.

Jing Zhi comes back and Ling Qiao asks if he was interrupting them. She asks why he’s comes and he tells her she’s the one who called him. She asks what he’s talking about and he reminds her that it was only an hour ago, and wonders if she’s losing her memories. She goes to check her phone, and she had accidently sent the text saying that he father had come check on them. She turns around to find him standing right next to her, and she apologizes for the mistake. Ling Qiao tells her if there is nothing then he’ll take his leave. The both call for each other at the same time, Ling Qiao tells her Ladies first, but she fires back Elders first. .

He tells her that he’s placed the dress from the car crash in her room. She mentions that she thought that he had burned it. He tells her that he can’t take something that belongs to someone else, so he tells her to consider it returned and now it a memento. She asks if it’s a memento of the crash or of him. He doesn’t answer but mentions that his offer to protect her still stands, and he tells her that if he needs anything to just ask.

Jing Zhi tells him that she doesn’t need anything from him. She walks toward him and stops within reach. She tells him that she doesn’t need anything except for him to remain by her side. She pulls him down for a kiss which he responds passionately to.

She snaps out of her day dream and tells him that she won’t bother him anymore as she has a lot of people who want to protect her, just like he saw. She also tells him that in a few decades she’ll be dead and he won’t have to regret anything anymore. Ling Qiao asks if that is all she wanted to say, and she confirms that. Ling Qiao looks hurt but turns to leave anyways. Jing Zhi leans against the back of her couch regretting what she said.

Yan Zhi, Crystal and Calamary are revisiting all of the crimes that revolve around Jing Zhi. Everything regarding the car chase and the assassin don’t seem to be leading anywhere, and there isn’t any evidence linking the assassin to who hired him. Yan Zhi suggests looking at things backwards. He suggests looking at who would want to kill the victims. Calamary and Crystal are splitting up to look if anyone who might want to kill either Jing Zhi or Shi Guang are linked to the assassin.

Chen is at the lab thinking of the case, and how the pieces could be placed together. Since he believes that the person in the photograph who pawned the Jade plaque  is the thief from 100 years ago, he tries to think of what’s the point of stealing the picture. Then it clicks, the only point to steal the picture is because the person in it isn’t dead, and now that the monster is awake he’s scared of revenge. So the person in the picture lived more than 130 years by using the enzymes in the monster’s blood. So not only did he steal the jade plaque but he also slit the monster’s throat. So Chen realizes that the person who lost the Jade plaque is the answer to the riddle, which is Ling Qiao.

Jing Zhi is at home with her mask on looking at her dress from the car crash. She throws the dress on to the other couch and complains that she gave Ling Qiao so much blood and they broke up due to so little. She decides that she is better off not having a boyfriend is better than having one like him. Jing Zhi quickly wonders how Ling Qiao saved Yan Zhi. She imagines him kissing Yan Zhi and she gets the chill, and decides to not think of that ever again.

Chen calls Jan gzhi and tells her that he know the secret behind her being kidnapped and Yan Zhi’s miraculous recovery. She tells him that it’s because she was saved by the monster. Chen tells her that it’s because Ling Qiao is the monster. His logic made him think that a monster would withdraw from a society that he is  apart from and not interact with people. He never expected him to be so close and pretending to be boyfriend. Yan Zhi flips out and tells at him that he wasn’t pretending to be her boyfriend, he was actually her boyfriend, and he never did anything wrong, he actually stood up for an old lady. Chen tries to calm her but she just keeps yelling. She tells him that he didn’t ask to become immortal, and he wouldn’t have left her if it wasn’t for Chen and Yan Zhi. Ling Qiao senses the increase of Jing Zhi’s heart rate.

Chen tells Jing Zhi that it’s fine to consider it his fault, but she asks him what good would it do if it doesn’t make him come back. Jing Zhi makes Chen promise not to tell which he agrees but he tells her not to blame him if people start figuring it out on their own. Jing Zhi is lying in bed holding her phone close, and Ling Qiao stands on the roof looking at her window. He looks down at his phone where he has a text filled with I’m sorries.

Crystal tells Yan Zhi that there is a package on his desk. Yan Zhi thanks her and opens it. It seems to be a picture of Shi Long and a woman, it also seems to be the picture that was previously stolen. Calamary tells Yan Zhi that Shi Long’s old driver paid for the assassin, and though Shi Long hasn’t been in the country for years, he recently came back. Yan Zhi asks him to contact Shi Long, and Calamary tells him that’s where the issue lies. Even the offices of the Hong Shi corporation doesn’t have contact information for him. Calamary hands the file over to Yan Zhi which contains the pictures of Shi Long which matches perfectly with his photo. Yan Zhi goes to the chief to tell him about the link to Shi Long to the cases.

Dong Dong is invited over to Jing Zhi’s parents house and Jing Zhi’s father asks that if Ling Qiao is on vacation why Jing Zhi didn’t go with him. Dong Dong tells them that Jing Zhi had some scenes to reshoot for the drama. Old Tian is worried that something is happening with Ling Qiao and Jing Zhi’s relationship because he’s been having a twitch in his eye. He goes to call Ling Qiao to warn him, when Dong Dong tells him that he should get himself checked out since it could be a warning sign of a stroke. Old Tian agrees that he needs to be in good health to protect Jing Zhi.

Ling Qiao goes to the ocean and starts talking the thing…we still don’t know that he’s not crazy yet. He tells it that he’s going to have become accustomed to living a life alone all over again. He wonders if it’s the human genes that pull him to her, but he also called Jing Zhi’s blood tenacious. Jing Zhi comes to the beach and Ling Qiao spots her, he asks how she managed to find him. Ling Qiao also asked why she didn’t call first because he might not have been there. She tells him that she knew he was there because the heartbeat stopped.

Ling Qiao and Jing Zhi sit next to each other on a rock and Jing Zhi hands him some photos. She tells him that it’s better than a bloody dress. She tells him that Chen figured out the secret but she’s made him promise not to tell, but it’s only a matter of time before the rest of them find out. She admits that she realizes how stupid she was.

Ling Qiao tells her to pretend that everything has been a dream, and she’ll realized that it’s impossible that there is a person who doesn’t age or die. She asks him if he’ll be able to forget her like she was a dream, and if not how long he’ll be able to remember her. Ling Qiao couldn’t give an answer, so Jing Zhi gets up and leaves. Ling Qiao follows behind and watches her leave. Jing Zhi is in a taxi and tells herself that if this is a dream she doesn’t want to wake up.

Screenshot 2016-05-21 02.20.11

Ling Qiao rents a car and stacks out the police station. Yan Zhi goes to see Calamary who is getting discouraged because he can’t track down Shi Long. Yan Zhi tells him that even a crafty rabbit has to eventually eat. Calamary asks Yan Zhi who sent him the photo, which he admits he doesn’t know. Even though there is still nothing on Professor Li either Yan Zhi and Calamary feel like they’re close.

Jing Zhi’s mother goes through her house and are sitting in the living room when Jing Zhi and Dong Dong arrive home. She admits that they did break up, but no one cheated on anyone and they just grew apart. Jing Zhi apologizes that she did become a socialite like the had wanted, and she tells her father the she can protect herself now. Her parents decide to leave and Jing Zhi tells Dong Dong to take them home.

Xuan Xuan and Chen go out for dinner and she asks about the hat an sunglasses. She tells him that he should be used to it because of Jing Zhi but remembers she wasn’t that popular at the time. Chen mentions that he’s come to the same restaurant with Jing Zhi and the food was ok. Xuan Xuan mentions that he shouldn’t be talking about his ex and he reminds her it’s her best friend so she forgives him. Xuan Xuan is worried about Jing Zhi’s broken heart and admits she thought that they would end up together, and she found them a good match. Chen tells her that it’s a good opening for Yan Zhi though.

Ling Qiao follows Yan Zhi. Yan Zhi takes Jing Zhi to a fancy restaurant and she tells him to be careful or else people would think that they were back together. Though that type of restaurant was never his style. Yan Zhi apologizes for not being more romantic when they were together. Yan Zhi pulls out a ring and tells her that he had bought that before they started dating because he was sure he was going to marry her. He tells her that she doesn’t have to answer now but he will wait for her.
