Rookies’ Diary: Episode 28

WARNING: MAJOR SPOILERS AHEAD. If you DO NOT want to be spoiled, please DO NOT read. You have been warned.

More training.

So after a round of jogging, etc, they were given a break. The guys were gathered around to talk nonsense again as we see Luo Gang on the bar, still training. Well, they weren’t really talking nonsense since it was about the upcoming match. Luo Gang was done with the monkey bars and wanted to practice his technique. And soon everyone was joining in as well, wanting to do their best. Yay for team spirit! (The song by F4 is in the background the whole time. F4 = Funny 4, NOT the ‘F4’, LOL!)

Here we go again. Sometimes I think Sheng Nan’s too nosy. Yet maybe she’s just overly concerned for them. It’s like stop aggravating him, but then she couldn’t help but want to know. I’m starting to get annoyed with the constant flashbacks. Come on, move on. Or more like I’m bored with watching Luo Gang and Sheng Nan. I don’t know. It’s just too fun to watch the others acting crazy than this. NOT that I dislike the characters or actors/actresses. Just feel too bored with watching them together versus the other guys goofing off. They are cute together and do have fun moments or memorable ones. But I don’t know. Just getting bored. On the other hand, listening to the song sang by Ah Pang and Liu Xiang Ci is more fun. BUT would have been fun to see it for Shan Ren and Sheng Nan though that would be super random since they’re not together or anything.

So Shan Ren was supposed to take a late-night shower with Neng Zhi accompanying him. Well, they were both taking showers at a different stall. BUT Neng Zhi left to take a call and Shan Ren was suddenly scared…of Ah Piao? JUST KIDDING…Well, he decided to ignore it BUT it was getting creepy again. Is it really Ah Piao? Careless, he managed to flick his bar of soap out of his stall. How to get it now? No one was around, right? (Except Ah Piao…) So just scramble out there and get it. No big deal…YET…since he realized it was Jian Xing the whole time, NOT Ah Piao. But maybe he rather it was Ah Piao? (He thought the white item in the corner was his bar of soap and Jian Xing was the one who picked up his bar of soap instead..nice?) Why were they playing that song in the background? Teasing him much? LOL! Poor Shan Ren! How to get out of it now? Lucky he was one of those who change really fast or he would be dead! He kept his nerves intact so great…LOL! So funny that he convinced Neng Zhi not to go check it out BUT ended up pulling Neng Zhi out of there as well.

An Bang back and watching them. Everything’s all too familiar, right? Sheng Nan yelling at Da Tong and Shan Ren’s scolding Lai Hu. Just like home, how he left it two days ago.

Everyone welcoming him home. Well, Lai Hu was the first one to yell out in excitement. He was kidding, right? But that wasn’t all since Hai Sheng spoke up on their behalf and thanked An Bang for saving Bo Wen. Da Tong’s attempt to greet An Bang back? LOL! Bo Wen’s inspirational message. Aww… (Love that song. The one in the background.)

So Xiao Yan sought You Shun out and realized of his difficulties, that he wasn’t lying about his father being sick, etc. That was kind of cute seeing how she was hanging up the clothes for him. You Shun was seriously silly though. I meant if she liked him for his money or whatever else, she wouldn’t be worth his time. But I guess I can’t blame him too much, considering how the world today revolved around money, etc. Awww…they were so cute…and the song was so suitable for the scene.

So while Shan Ren was harassing the recruits–as always, Hong Jie came on her bike and told Da Tong that Xiao Yan was missing. And while Da Tong was trying to recount things to Shan Ren–who was like standing there the whole time, they learned from Hao Zhi that Xiao Yan went to You Shun’s house. Hong Jie was relief YET she jumped at Hao Zhi for such a bold comment. She soon got You Shun’s house number–thanks to Shan Ren’s threat–and called Xiao Yan up. Or at least You Shun’s house since Xiao Yan picked it up. The exchange was too funny. LOL!

Eh…an auction? Well…it was more like war! LOL! Wu Yong and Xiao De Ji fighting for the shirt? LOL! They couldn’t even reason for themselves when it comes to Xiao Yan. You Shun looks like he wants to jump in but… Seeing Hao Zhi being the one taking control of the auction was kind of interesting. LOL! That was so funny! Da Tong stopped Wu Yong in time, whispering that it was his mother’s shirt and NOT Xiao Yan’s! LOL! Xiao De Ji was in for good this time! LOL! This was too priceless! This was worth even more than any ball game that they wish for a re-match OR one of those other activities where they could perform their best. The next item was equally interesting since it was believed to be Sheng Nan’s. Shan Ren went ballistic! LOL! Can’t lose! It was between Ah Hou and Kai Wen. Shan Ren had to react soon. Were the others clapping Shan Ren on or laughing at him? Probably both, LOL! He thought he could get the prize right there and then. He forgot what he told Xiao De Ji earlier, LOL! Too into his victory to remember. OMG! It was Neng Zhi’s AND not Sheng Nan’s. Should’ve listened more carefully! That was worth lots of laughs all right! Of course, Shan Ren can’t back down though the others said he could. Sheng Nan was watching. Would be too much of a bad rep on him. Okay, now everything comes out…and Da Tong let it slip that it was Hong Jie’s shirt! LOL! That was another hilarious discovery. Too priceless! Aww…too bad things turned out quite embarrassing for You Shun. So it was a relief for him.

I don’t know why I should be surprised by Xiao De Ji’s move, using You Shun’s hardship as an advantage. But it was just too low. Was this another test for You Shun? I meant if he’d done it, it would be for his father. YET I rather he be a bit embarrassed and accepted help from the others–just temporarily until he could somehow pay them back in the future rather than betray them again. They’re a crazy bunch but they have always been supportive of one another through all sort of difficulties, especially Bo Wen or Wu Yong’s situations. Even went through misunderstandings. But they managed to get past that, even if they had to apologize to one another, etc. Now, this? It was a hard decision but…

What to do now? He didn’t tell Hao Zhi but hinted that he had no heart to play. A game was just a game but the trust was there. Too hard.

This was too exaggerating. Hai Sheng got a game plan ready for them? OKAY! Luo Gang pointed out all the weaknesses, LOL! Even Bo Wen agreed with Luo Gang. Yup, Hai Sheng needed to bring out ‘experience’ to extinguish the others’ doubts. YUP, he was definitely using his persuasion skills to the max YET it had no effect on Luo Gang. Touche. Should we thank Xiao De Ji then? Since Luo Gang was about to leave but since Xiao De Ji worked them up with his taunting, they were more than ready to join forces once again and beat that arrogant dude so he would crawl and beg. (Well, not to that extreme, but yeah…)

So funny! Hai Sheng’s smooth-talking again. Still cute. And funny with his ‘of course’. Her laugh sounded too sinister, LOL! What was he supposed to do this time? Can’t wait to see. And his laugh was not so confident anymore, LOL! He was in for good. Gotta do it now, not just ranting his mantra.

So the match is on. This one will be a real stake to some people. It’s a test of trust and…we’ll see. So funny that Luo Gang was yelling at Shan Ren to pay attention and stop looking at Sheng Nan. LOL! They dared to return all the words Shan Ren used to scold them in the past? OOOooohhhh….I guess it was one of those once in a lifetime thing. Gotta take advantage of it to the max.  OMG! So Yu Ting wanted Hai Sheng to attack Ding Hao with the ball? OOOOHhhh…this was more than yelling at Shan Ren for his slowness. Darn…he actually did it! OMG! He did it! And apparently he got away with it! PHEW! Of course, the others had to convince Ding Hao. And lucky that Ding Hao was that forgivable. If it was any other superior, he was dead! AND I MEAN DEAD! Luo Gang got Xiao De Ji and his gesture was too slick! BUT he signaled to You Shun…is You Shun really going to do it? He just did a high-five with Luo Gang. It felt good to be on the same side and having everyone cheering for him as well, right? Too much pressure. I guess things won’t be resolved or move forward until Xiao De Ji gets kicked out for good since he seems to want to break every one of them down. First bullying Shi Jun and now preying on You Shun’s need with the financial. AND YES, You Shun finally choose to break free from Xiao De Ji’s taunt. He needs to conquer his own demon and not get tempted by others’ offers. It’s so funny that even one of his own teammates was laughing at him. I guess they had no choice but to submit to his power? Victory was so satisfying yet I think what You Shun liked more was their trust and support. (Of course…)

Another scene worth mentioning. Their joined forces to fight against someone as despicable, always wanting to use any method possible to win or sabotage others. Nice that You Shun threw Xiao De Ji’s money back to him. It really showed that You Shun could stand up to such a bully now. Aww…Wu Yong’s reaction. I meant I’ve been struggling in the past few episodes too with seeing how You Shun and Wu Yong looking so cute with Xiao Yan. You Shun truly deserves his happiness, but seeing Wu Yong’s reaction when Da Tong acknowledged You Shun is kind of sad. An Bang’s spying on them? How nice…

And the relief was a success and some more… There would be more good news to come in the next episode. Hopefully so.
They were using the preview time to present a song from the soundtrack again. I don’t mind really. Yay, Mo Gui Pai Zhang is back! LOL! Well, he has been back but he didn’t have to wear the protective cloth anymore. Even more energy to yell at others, LOL! More troubles and control damage. Da Tong poured water on Xiao De Ji and the other dude but the buckets ended up on Wang Wei and Shan Ren’s heads? GREAT! Time to run! Oh no, can’t really since he’s up on a tree. And Hao Zhi’s wife’s back to cause trouble?

More funny BTS. As if it’s not always so funny. They say that Ah Xiang was heavy? LOL! The NGs were always the  best! Fu Zi Chun leaned in for a kiss instead of turning so she could whisper to him? Looked like it! LOL! Then his attempt to toss the game plan on the table got everyone laughing. Lucky Tang Feng didn’t spit out his water, LOL!

Rookies’ Diary: Episode 27

WARNING: MAJOR SPOILERS AHEAD. If you DO NOT want to be spoiled, please DO NOT read. You have been warned.

Kind of cheating on repeating some scenes. But I guess it was trying to build up to the climax once again.

So while the others were searching desperately for him, he was going through flashbacks and thinking how he couldn’t go on anymore.

And the incidental scene we saw in the previews. For a person who wants to die, he sure is strong. YES, he was persistent with wanting to die but honestly. Lucky An Bang was persistent and quite strong as well to maintain his grip that long. Since Bo Wen was wiggling like crazy before, wanting An Bang to let go. Um…instead of yelling for An Bang not to let go, why don’t the rest of the population go find some other alternatives? Not standing around and yell. Oy, hectic all right. Darn, Luo Gang and Hai Sheng came on time BUT not really since it was kind of too late. The drop! I swear, I thought they were just trying to make it hectic and then somehow the other two or someone would eventually come and help everyone up. Yet the fall occurred. And before things revealed, I had a feeling An Bang was the one who had his head bang. Darn! And I guess his sacrifice wasn’t all vain since Bo Wen finally realized how many people were worried for him. Oh yeah, now even Jing Wen know that An Bang and Luo Gang are related. (And the information was passed onto Bi Ying. This secret was starting to get out of hand…though it wasn’t exactly a secret.)

PHEW, he’s all right. Of course he can’t die ’cause he’s the main guy. BUT I thought they would intensify the whole situation and make it like the other soaps where everyone would cry ever so dramatically, etc. And was he right-handed or left-handed? I guess it doesn’t matter anymore since he has no choice but to use his left hand in this situation.

Bo Wen looked like he was serious about it–and won’t repeat such a foolish thing again. Hope so. He looked like he thought it through. Well, who could repeat it after knowing everyone was so worried? And not to mention how An Bang was almost gone trying to save him. It was strange hearing An Bang confessed that he has been through lost love in the past before. Just strange. ‘Cause we’ve been seeing him as the tough, serious pai zhang the whole time.

So Hao Zhi managed to get a hold of You Shun and convinced him that they were worried for his father’s well being, etc. I guess after Bo Wen’s attempted suicide, it didn’t matter anymore regarding the other event. Or was it just Hao Zhi’s nature to worry for You Shun? Either way, I knew it would get resolved. They were friends after all.

So Hao Zhi’s on a mission to beg Xiao Yan to make a trip to You Shun’s house to check on matters. Oy, she’s still mad. She has every reason to since she was lied to in the past. Hao Zhi was all heart, coming up with every reason possible to cover for You Shun. (And I guess it’s true to some extent or Hao Zhi has too much faith in You Shun. YET I got deceived again, thinking there might be something to look forward to with her and Wu Yong…oy…) Xiao Yan was considering things over…we’ll see.

Oy, more dramas. I said in the past already, won’t comment on the political parts anymore. So just hope it will pass soon ’cause I want it to focus on the soldiers more. But will say one thing: Poor Ding Hao.

What in the world are they doing? Ohhh…they were actually playing out the scene according to directions (sort of). But they were way too over to be convincing. They argued in front of Ding Hao? Brave all right. Ding Hao’s always so forgiving though. Oh…Shan Ren and Wang Wei get to play the scene instead? LOL! GREAT! But before we get to see Shan Ren and Wang Wei’s performance, others were carrying on side conversations. Lai Hu was trying to reassure Luo Gang about An Bang’s well being while Shi Jun was explaining to Hai Sheng about Ding Hao’s intention in letting others played out the scene.

And I thought Da Tong was WAY over. Look at Shan Ren. Exaggerating much? Anyway, they were bringing up possible problems the soldiers could be going through with Shan Ren’s words while Wang Wei was informing them about all the help they could get–without having to go through the problems alone or even think of ending their lives. Despite the bizarre way of presenting the problems and resolving them, Shan Ren and Wang Wei were so funny at the end, especially with how Shan Ren was saying he didn’t want to commit suicide anymore and Wang Wei hugged him and patted his head, muttering, “Good, good.” (Sort of like soothing a child! LOL!)

So news traveled back that both parties were all right. (Actually, Sheng Nan reported it to Ding Hao and Ding Hao told the others.) That was funny that Wu Yong was making the comment about Mo Gui Pai Zhang and the others were chiming in. YET not funny that Xiao De Ji and his gang were saying those stuff. That was cruel. Lucky Ding Hao directed the conversation back to the relevant topic. After some more instructions, they were left to ponder matters for themselves. (Eh…they kept teasing us with the tune–like I said before. When in the world are they going to play the song? Don’t mind me, I’m just impatient.)

So one of the fastest ways to get noticed or get some attention was to commit suicide–and then failed. JUST KIDDING! I know it wasn’t funny but now everyone know him. Well, they were following the directions and wanted to show their care for Bo Wen so he would realize how many people worry for him to not repeat such. Hope some parties wouldn’t ruin it for them. Well, even if they would, he wouldn’t consider suicide anymore since after what An Bang went through for him. And I thought Xiao De Ji would sabotage them first but Tian Bin had to get all curious about it! Darn! Serves him right for getting hit by both Hai Sheng and Wu Yong. What in the world was he thinking? Though he didn’t mean it.

And it was just the two of them again, talking over matters. Bo Wen definitely scared the world out of Hai Sheng all right. (That song about friendship was playing in the background. It was also in the soundtrack. Suitable for such a situation.) Good thing that they got it all sort out now.

No wonder they wanted to see the show. Xiao De Ji had to carry out his sentence so the guys got a chance for revenge. And they missed? Tian Bin’s suggestion, great idea! LOL! Too bad it hit Shan Ren! They were so dead! That was messed up though! The other three pointed to Lai Hu? LOL! Poor him BUT it wasn’t all wrong. Can’t believe it. So much for good brothers. Yup, Shan Ren’s not dumb. Of course, he could figure out that it wasn’t just Lai Hu. The result?

Yup, they were punished for not admitting their wrongs. Too bad that Xiao De Ji get to laugh at them. Oy…the price they pay for taking on a little revenge. Be more careful next time? Maybe…

Moving on after a round of dramas. They were learning new things again, of course. Lai Hu was the first to get scolded this time. Must admit he’s a genius though. Thinking he could jump down with fewer risks, LOL! OMG! It got better since Lai Hu asked Shan Ren for help but he doesn’t want to. Then Shan Ren couldn’t get out because his hat couldn’t squeeze through. When he asked Lai Hu for help, Lai Hu gave the same reply! LOL! But then he had to help anyway. That was the difference between being a soldier and a superior. Okay, Shan Ren wasn’t so heartless since he tried to help Lai Hu BUT it was really hard. He was really stuck. Uh…what possessed Lai Hu to take the short cut in the first place? So it’s high but he should’ve done better estimates. Poor Shan Ren, almost died trying to help Lai Hu. Next in line? Da Tong! Oh yeah, Da Tong had the fear of heights! Xiao De Ji was just a chicken. Da Tong ran like mad! But he bumped into Sheng Nan instead. I guess that was worse. But she told him a way to conquer his fear. (Sort of…not too bad…) Seriously, now we see why Xiao De Ji loves picking on others. That way, they couldn’t see his weaknesses. Will Xiao De Ji seriously learn after that lecture? Have to wait and see. Unlikely since it’s just awhile. And Ah Hou’s just so funny. He was freaking Shan Ren out, LOL!

Perhaps a lot of things we’d been seeing were from Bo Wen’s point of view so it seemed like it was hopeless and how she was hiding stuff from him. Yet it wasn’t like she was heartless or anything. It was just Bo Wen’s interpretation. It was good to see how they finally came to terms and how Bo Wen realized there were still many things in this world that he hadn’t seen or done. And how there were many people caring for him. Like he said, his world didn’t only have her, but a lot of others too. A peaceful closure at last.

A celebration should be called for since Bo Wen’s a new person now. At least he finally saw through everything. And Hai Sheng’s once again reassured. Nothing like Hai Sheng’s encouragement, right?

Da Tong wanted to use the whole suicidal incident to their advantage by saying that Hai Sheng was the one who jumped? BUT luckily Hai Sheng turned Da Tong’s idea down. He did not want to use Bo Wen’s situation as a joke. Great for him. Giving him even more points. He could prank someone, but not go to the extreme of using his friend’s situation to benefit himself. He abandoned Da Tong? He had to find out that Da Tong already lied about the person who jumped. Eek! Da Tong deserves that hit. So what if Bo Wen’s okay now? Didn’t have to play that joke on Yu Ting. It’s not funny.

Okay, one of the scenes in the preview. So that was the reason why Hai Sheng trusted her so much to drink it. He thought it was Da Tong making Yu Ting worry hence not wanting her effort to go to waste. Yu Ting, of course, knew Da Tong was lying so she had prepared a little of her own specialty for Hai Sheng. Just to teach him a lesson. Too bad he drank it for real…eek! She did look so pitiful and honest. So of course he fell for it. Aww…that was a nice and slick confession! No one could pull that one off except for Hai Sheng. (And the song played in the background helped. They were so into promoting the soundtrack! LOL!)

And that was it for this episode after the talk between An Bang and Bi Ying.

Guess what? They changed the ending theme for the show, which turned into the first song of the soundtrack! Yay! Cool! Or is it only for this episode to present the MV? I guess we’ll find out in the next episode. Never mind, the ending song is still ‘I Believe’ since the previous was just presenting the MV. They just didn’t show the previews. But we could see some upcoming scenes when they play the ending theme anyway.

BTS. Always love those. And this time, we’re rewarded with seeing how they set up and shoot the attempted suicide scene. Eek! A lot of precautions but still nerve-racking. No stunt doubles? Beat that! And poor Ah Pang, had to endure the pain with the water balloon part. Eek! How many take was that?

Rookies’ Diary: Episode 26

WARNING: MAJOR SPOILERS AHEAD. If you DO NOT want to be spoiled, please DO NOT read. You have been warned.

So they were trying their hardest to master the latest routines that they learned. More high blood pressure time for their trainers. Oy…poor those superiors.

So the story unfolded. Shan Ren was telling them about how there was going to be some filming around there. They got all excited but Hai Sheng turned his smile off upon hearing about Tian Xin. Of course, he would since his buddy has been depressed about it for a while now. Yup, he pulled Bo Wen aside to ask about his well being and if he could handle if Tian Xin was coming. Nice response, but we all know he’s just trying to reassure Hai Sheng–and Hai Sheng knew it as well. Oy, hope it’s only this one episode. YET they were playing that tune in the background. Anyone caught it? It’s the song that Zhao Jun Ya sang for this drama. It’s in the OST. Don’t know when they’re going to play the actual song and not just the tune. Maybe waiting to use it for Zhao Jun Ya?

Back to trials. Lai Hu’s so careless. No surprise. Eek, poor Shi Jun. And I knew Xiao De Ji wasn’t going to change anytime soon. He was just looking pitiful so the others wouldn’t kick him out YET. Da Tong dared to use Hai Sheng’s phrases to get back at him? Oy! They were going to be defeated because of him? NOT that it was that big of a deal since it was a matter of performance and practice. But seeing Xiao De Ji’s arrogant face just makes it ten times worse.

Shi Jun’s condition. Hopefully, it’s nothing serious. He’s so hard-working.

Now I know why Shi Jun’s freaked out. His old man sure is tough. YES, some of the things he said made sense and I do understand why he believes things should be more strict. But there are other things to consider as well.

Oohh…the confrontation…and tension building. Oy, the typical drama. The father always worries about the son yet usually scold when he sees the son and not utter some words of caring. Afraid that the son might be too spoiled or rely on the father too much to grow up? Yes, I was right. He was just worried for Shi Jun but it sucks also that he doesn’t have confidence in Shi Jun to pass.

So the monkey show is on. I meant the filming is finally commenced. No Bo Wen. Might be better since it would be even more awkward. Kind of weird though. I meant shooting a drama inside a drama. LOL! What? Those people were asking for signatures? Oh well, they’re guys so whatever. No one could stop them. Not even Shan Ren since he wasn’t around anymore. Well, at least Hai Sheng and Wu Yong weren’t going up to her for signature, right? (To sum it up, their group didn’t go up there or Hai Sheng would kill them.) Well, Xiao De Ji got it good. They sure got a kick out of that. But Shan Ren was lurking around and waiting for the moment to yell at them again. (That was sort of creepy since I thought he was gone.) Man, Chen De Lie sure has eyes that could melt people. ‘Cause the way he was portraying those scenes with Bo Wen looking so sad was just too pitiful. Makes one sympathize for his character. Even the director acknowledges those eyes. (LOL) Hai Sheng’s so funny! (And gotta love him for being so supportive and wanting to help Bo Wen get out of the sticky–AND super awkward–situation.) The director thinks he’s kind of unusual? (Try crazy.) What? Bo Wen accepts? OKAY!

Oh yeah, Luo Gang wasn’t in the group either. It’s hard to believe that An Bang’s a maniac (sort of) with the others yet he’s so patient and gentle toward his brother. And seeing how Luo Gang has the upper-hand at times. (Sort of.)

Nightfall and there were several things going on, some more worrisome than others. You Shun got permission to leave and tend to his father – who has been hospitalized. Then there’s Hai Sheng and Bo Wen’s conversation and how Bo Wen’s trying to reassure Hai Sheng that he would be fine with the shooting the next day.

Hai Sheng and Shi Jun’s late-night talk. Shi Jun sure got Hai Sheng this time. Well, it was an accident. Poor Hai Sheng’s leg. But it wasn’t anything serious–this time. (And Hai Sheng thought it was Shan Ren at first. It would be funnier if he thought it was some ghost, LOL!) A change to see these two talk–aside from the usual only confiding to people within their own groups (the ones they came with, not the recently formed group).

Yay, they were moving on to new things. Two guesses who would add more headaches for the superiors. Poor Bo Wen! I hope Lai Hu doesn’t end up wiping out the rest of his comrades before he succeeds in learning the techniques. Made sense to give Shi Jun a break. Poor Shi Jun, being so hard on himself. (Hey, they were using another song from the soundtrack. Cool!) Da Tong was actually awesome? That was funny! I thought he dropped something or made a mistake. But they were putting him on, LOL! Eh…Tian Bin’s actually not tian bin anymore? (JUST KIDDING…) Well, guess everyone has their weakness. Shan Ren wouldn’t mind giving him a break on that one. (Kind of.) Oh, it wasn’t so hopeless if they couldn’t succeed with the first method since there was another one – with the help of their comrades. Lai Hu’s happy again. And there was also a third method. YAY! Looking hopeful. (Another song from the soundtrack in the background.) Yay! Teamwork and everyone were clapping Lai Hu on…or more like relief before they were all wiped out because of his recklessness? And they were teasing us again with that song by Zhao Jun Ya, only playing the tune. Maybe not time yet? But definitely using the songs at the right time–and great timing for promotion too, LOL!

Wu Yong was sure showing his loyalty toward Bo Wen, still ranting away about the other dude. Yup, day two of filming and even Luo Gang joined in. Well, thanks a lot, Hai Sheng. He said they didn’t have to call Wang Wei out to PK the other dude, but even Shan Ren could beat him (in looks and talents)? LOL! I wonder if that’s a compliment toward Shan Ren or an insult. Geez whiz. Okay, why was Bo Wen going upstairs when the shooting was like right there? And they were setting up their equipment and stuff so it looked more like they were filming since the previous day with one guy carrying the camera was a bit fake. Was Bo Wen going to commit suicide for real? He seriously is looking like it since the part where he was looking at their room and was thinking. And then there was the whole lurking in the distance and spying on Tian Xin and the other dude. AND going upstairs sure looks super suspicious.

YUP! He’s up there. The suspense is killing me! Gah!

And they’re sending a search party out for him, which also marked the end of the episode.

Previews…oh shoot, they shot the water balloon at Shan Ren? Accident but still. They dodged but wonder if Shan Ren saw them. Two guesses. Eh…more troubles for An Bang… Yu Ting’s payback time? Hai Sheng actually drank it. Well, almost. Yup, Bo Wen jumped but lucky An Bang went with his instinct and got there on time. Or it seems like it since he managed to catch Bo Wen’s hand. Hope the others come on time to help. Or An Bang could pull him up.

WARNING: MAJOR SPOILERS AHEAD. If you DO NOT want to be spoiled, please DO NOT read. You have been warned.

They were finally learning the techniques to pass the wires. Eek! Looks dangerous and tricky. Look at those sharp things.

And Shan Ren get to show off for everyone! NOT really, demonstrate, lol. We already seen Sheng Nan and Luo Gang going through the trials because Sheng Nan was trying to make a point. Now we get to see how the others would deal with it, LOL! Wu Yong got yelled at! LOL! He thought he could receive special privileges? LOL! And Xiao De Ji’s method: STUPID. Yes, he could see while he slides but so what? It’s not going to be useful if we think about it realistically with encountering those wires somewhere else, not safely behind their base. Hahahaha…Shan Ren creamed him! Da Tong’s turn, LOL! His neck’s crooked so he can’t do it? OKAY! Lai Hu’s turn though. OMG! That was uncalled for! But could happen. Hai Sheng and Luo Gang were competing again. Funny! LOL! An Bang’s a proud brother! On the other hand, why was Shan Ren studying An Bang so intently? And Sheng Nan was experiencing flashbacks. Tian Bin and Bo Han were having tea? LOL! Shan Ren was back to attacking Mo Gui Pai Zhang? LOL!

Hai Sheng and Da Tong did not know what they were getting themselves into. They thought they were still pulling the schemes on Yu Ting but they had no idea she already found out. OMG! Yu Ting seriously match Hai Sheng wit per wit. They were in for good this time. Da Tong’s pushing it! He’s going to be sooo dead! LOL! Ohhhh…Da Tong was speaking Cantonese at one point. Got too excited! And Hai Sheng’s so arrogant! He’ll know if he’s awesome tomorrow!

Ooohh…yup! Time to kill You Shun. Not really but he’s history since Da Tong’s on his case now. Dared to use his sister for profit. Well, nothing happened but still… Calling Da Tong ‘Ge’ helps? LOL! NOPE!

And they were at war! LOL! Jia you!

And the beauties were there to support them! LOL!

They managed to take revenge by attacking Xiao De Ji with the ball instead of caring if they win or lose. LOL! Well, it matters if they win since they would get free drinks. Yet revenge is so sweet. Xiao Yan even cheered for Wu Yong! Yay! Cute! Wonder if that would become his inspiration! Too bad…OY! They lost! Sucks! Now the other side could laugh at them. The only reason why they lost so badly was Luo Gang’s change in attitude. Couldn’t blame him…

You Shun trying to patch things up? Too late! She agreed…but…we’ll see.

Lai Hu sure said it. Though they had no idea and didn’t know better, but Lai Hu still has the right to defend his buddy.

What’s the effective way to apologize to Luo Gang? Tian Bin’s dancing and singing! NOPE, Da Tong shushed him. Next? Umm…Da Tong’s ineffective communication techniques, LOL! Hai Sheng was more straight-forward and to the point. And then Da Tong finally got to the point. I guess they just needed someone to start first to break the awkward atmosphere. That was nice, Da Tong dragging Shi Jun out to take the blame. Geez…

And they dared to talk about her Hai Sheng? Someone needs to be taught a lesson. And the exchange between Hai Sheng and Yu Ting…awww…

They were still reading other people’s notes? GREAT! OMG! Hai Sheng was so arrogant. He thought it was Yu Ting’s note? LOL! He had no idea! And when Da Tong discovered the person’s name on the back, it got even more interesting! LOL! They get to laugh at Hai Sheng! What? Wu Xiang Lin? LOL! Hai Sheng’s so slick. His theory is so funny. Probably trying to save face? LOL! Yu Ting didn’t want people to know it’s her so she used some other person’s name? OKAY! But Wu Yong sabotaged him by saying that Wu Xiang Lin usually sneak looks at him SO…it must be true. Da Tong congratulate him? LOL! Da Tong had to go take care of matters regarding his sister so the others followed to interfere, leaving Hai Sheng behind. BUT Wu Yong doubled-back and told Hai Sheng Wu Xiang Lin was watching him from behind? LOL! Priceless! That was freaky all right – with him being stalked.

The inevitable confrontation. So funny with Da Tong’s sound effects! And Lai Hu had to try and stop him from jumping out. While You Shun was trying to make up excuses for himself. And before it got too out of hand, Da Tong had to jump out to interfere. Well, Lai Hu couldn’t stand it and jump out first. Anyway, Wu Yong and Lai Hu had to stand aside (more like sit aside) because it didn’t concern them. But okay, they were fine sitting there, being entertained. So the interrogation continued and You Shun was tongue-tied while Da Tong threatened to beat You Shun up–since You Shun sold his sister out. AND then he had to say, “Don’t try to stop me” BUT Lai Hu and Wu Yong were just sitting there playing with the leaves. GREAT! Before Da Tong could pull through, they were being stopped and had to go back…so much for a show…But Da Tong promised to help his sister seek revenge. YEAH RIGHT! She cursed the male population and ran off. Nice exit!

And it was Wu Yong’s turn to comfort her. And nice, Wu Yong. Just when things were going well (NOT REALLY), you had to blow it (even more). He was actually happy that they argued? LOL! She couldn’t believe it either though she was prepared that he’ll laugh at her. Well, the explanation made sense but then it got into a danger zone. Someone was honestly describing himself when he mentioned about there are so many guys there that she could like, LOL! And why was he calling You Shun a monkey? That was going to help? (Still funny…) And aww…he had to watch her leave. Can’t blame her since she was really mad at You Shun and was now taking it out on him. Not to mention it was like she said, she thought he was persuading her otherwise because her brother told him to. (They need to stop playing that song for every couple. I meant I like that song BUT I want it to be a different song for this two–like how Shan Ren and Sheng Nan has a different song and Wang Wei and Xiao Rou has a song as well.) Aww…that was so sad. The first time we get to see it from Wu Yong’s point of view. At least the serious Wu Yong.

Another confrontation. What Hao Zhi said was very powerful. Xiao Yan was Da Tong’s sister hence she was also their sister, they had to look out for her. (Thank you. For once I see the guys standing on the girls’ side in an argument. I meant okay, it was mostly for Da Tong’s sake but usually, they would try to patch things up and say how he has his reasons, etc, etc. But now they actually made You Shun suffer regardless of how he had a good reason to try and get some cash flow.) YES, You Shun needed money for his father to see the doctor, BUT he could’ve asked the guys to pool their money and then he would eventually return it later. Considering how they were good brothers, they would help him AND wouldn’t laugh at him or anything for his not so well off status. Maybe this will teach him?

OMG! More trouble! Shi Jun’s diary got exposed? They were able to laugh it off? At least that was not too extreme? YET! Yup, getting intense. Two guesses it was Xiao De Ji and his gang’s doing. AND poor Shi Jun! Lucky the others weren’t taking it out on Shi Jun with his criticism. They really learned to laugh it off. Though they were turning on themselves, it wasn’t too extreme–YET.

And as they say, never force someone to the wall. That person will fight back! So he was fighting a losing battle. But it was a matter of principle. Hai Sheng to the rescue! Lucky for Shi Jun! YET those guys were playing dirty and they were outnumbered. Lucky Luo Gang arrived in time to save the day. He’s more capable than that, having been in numerous fights in the past. Bring it on! Wang Wei just had to come by at that time. Eek!

They looked so innocent doing push-ups. Yeah right! They had a mutual agreement to not rat one another out? ‘Cause Hai Sheng was reminding Xiao De Ji not to spill the beans–or else. Like Wang Wei would believe them. Doing push-ups this time of the night? When they could be relaxing before bedtime? Okay, at least they only had to clean up. AND then Xiao De Ji got it with exposing Shi Jun’s diary. BUT he had to say that he wants everyone to read and learn from Shi Jun’s composition skills? GREAT! YEAH RIGHT! Man, now I know why I love Wang Wei so much! He smiles one minute and turns fierce again! LOL! Serves them right! Couldn’t sleep tonight! SORRY! Luo Gang and Hai Sheng admiring one another’s abilities? LOL! NICE!

So what’s the verdict? One more chance. But I want to know what the punishment would be…(DARN, I’m evil, right?) But then it was him who brought it onto himself. They’d given him too many chances to repent. I know Sheng Nan and An Bang got a point. BUT…still…

Finally, a chance for them to reconcile. Funny how  Sheng Nan was giving him a hard time. Nice scene still…like the song in the background. (See what I mean with every couple has their song?) Lai Hu’s talking in his sleep, so funny. And Shan Ren misunderstood Sheng Nan! LOL! But of course, he found out later that it wasn’t his that Sheng Nan was drinking. But he still misunderstood when he overheard Bi Ying’s words. OY! Aww…that sucks! Bi Ying shot him down with the info. She was just teasing but that was just too sad. So funny how he was mumbling when Bi Ying was gone. And that was the end of the episode after that genuine speech.

Previews…Shi Jun’s father appearance. More tension but we get more info regarding their father and son conflict. Hai Sheng and Shi Jun’s talk. A change. What? Tian Xin coming to their place? What in the world is she doing there? Ooohhh…shooting some scenes there. Hai Sheng to the rescue when they wanted to cast Bo Wen as the main guy. What? Bo Wen’s going to commit suicide? AGAIN?

BTS…Tang Feng and Fu Zi Chun were still fighting over who was best? LOL! OMG! The ball hit Xia Zheng Feng instead, LOL! Painful. It was too easy getting hurt there. Honestly, they were just too strong. Tang Feng wants to PK everyone? LOL! Fu Zi Chun’s just too funny. Where in the world was he planning to toss that ball to? Wang Wei’s NG, LOL!

Rookies’ Diary: Episode 24

WARNING: MAJOR SPOILERS AHEAD. If you DO NOT want to be spoiled, please DO NOT read. You have been warned.

Of course more training and practice, which also mean more aggravating the trainers. And like always, there are a few exceptions. But it doesn’t matter. Since the ones who messed up accounted for all the high blood pressure problems already, LOL! And I thought Lai Hu would make it through this time with his initial performance working like it should, but he has to goof up again. I guess it wouldn’t be the same if he’s able to carry through without getting yelled at.

Oy, if there were two Sheng Nan, huh? But then if that was so, she wouldn’t be special anymore. And the guys wouldn’t be fighting for her attention. (It’s not like they were but still…)

That was so messed up! They were reading the letters from those people. But I guess that was how they discovered the note like the previews show. Yup, they ended up reading various messages around the tree hence discovering the note about Luo Gang.

Regrouping. Yup, they need a good plan all right. And the first step was to figure out who wrote the note. The less people know the better, right? Hai Sheng is really suitable to be their leader. And he was right that Shan Ren wouldn’t be as petty about helping Luo Gang. Yes, he was pissed off that Luo Gang was hurting Sheng Nan, but he still offered to hep her afterward. (He did say those words about letting Luo Gang be but I feel like it’s better that he say it than be all fake about it, pretending nothing’s happening.)

They were seriously getting better with this. (Of course since first time always create hilarious scenes.) That meant Shan Ren won’t be scolded by Sheng Nan anymore? (LOL) What? Eek, Shan Ren stomped on Luo Gang’s hand. Well, he didn’t know ’cause Luo Gang was so into the scenery so Shan Ren didn’t know. But ouch! AND grrr…Xiao De Ji was so despicable. He used those low tactics to try and find them? (Or would he be rewarded since he managed to use any types of tactics to seek out the enemy?) Tian Bin almost made it! Too bad he was a bit nosy about listening to Shi Jun talking to the others. So Hai Sheng, Wu Yong, and Da Tong didn’t get caught? YAY! Three for our team! OMG! Da Tong was so clever. He got rid of the costumes and went to sit at a different group. No wonder the others had no idea! LOL! Shan Ren had to go get him! Aww…poor Shan Ren. Got yelled at to the point where he couldn’t say anymore. What in the world was Da Tong thinking? Did he have to go that far to deceive others? I knew it! He would get it big with Shan Ren when they were back within their territory again. That was funny. They were looking for Wu Yong but did they have to exaggerate so far? Storm and rain? LOL! So funny that Wu Yong’s not falling for their tricks. He thought they were still under the test. Ewww…that was so gross. Poor Wu Yong! (And what? That was weird. He said it’s sweet? Eek!) Hai Sheng was hiding on some tree? LOL! Clever! No one cared to look there. So funny. Hai Sheng making fun of Shan Ren? This was something familiar. Kind of fun watching these two. And he saw Shan Ren getting scold? LOL! Poor Shan Ren!

More confrontation. Not really but at least Luo Gang knows that they’re not giving up on him, especially Sheng Nan. Aww…that was sweet that he poured the water for her. (Okay, nothing extraordinary about the gesture but it was the thought that count.) And I’m torn between rooting for who again. BUT guess it doesn’t have to be. Can like both of the guys without wanting them to be with her.

Aww…see what I mean with this is hard to pick? Though I know that it would be appropriate that Luo Gang and Sheng Nan end up together. What?! He must be day-dreaming, right? I’m confused now… Darn! There’s that song in the back, teasing us again! YUP! He was day-dreaming! LOL! I knew it! Sheng Nan sounded too gentle. LOL! It was Jian Xing all along! Eek! He had to run again! LOL! Cheng Gong Ling is such a romantic place? LOL! Shan Ren already sneaked away! (Or more like he was walking away while Jian Xing was talking on and on.) Okay, so he was unsuccessful since Jian Xing turned around and called him again. OY! How to get out of this one? So funny! It was tricky but he managed to get away!

Exam time! Man, what a way to cheat! And I thought Hai Sheng wouldn’t pull such thing but he was willing to be in on it too? LOL! Well, if Tian Bin wasn’t so noisy or acting so suspicious, they would’ve gotten away with it. So much for it! Should’ve more attention. That was a great move, he sneaked it to Wu Yong on the way to the front? I almost forget that Tian Bin was the sneakiest among them all.

That was funny. Wang Wei was being nosy and Sheng Nan told him off. (Sort of!) But it was funny how she almost confide in him. LOL!

What in the world? He grabbed everyone’s papers? Well, at least the ones he could reach to snatch. That was messed up but funny at the same time! What? Bo Wen was willing to let Hai Sheng copy but Hai Sheng doesn’t want it? Hinting something? Or he only wanted to cheat off of others in case they get in trouble but doesn’t want Bo Wen to get into trouble? OKAY! Da Tong and Lai Hu were doing the same but they actually asked the others for permission before looking versus Hai Sheng’s maniac snatching method! LOL! OOOOHHHH…No wonder! They were trying to see who was the one who wrote the note! NOT cheating! That was a risky technique since they could get in trouble for cheating. No wonder Hai Sheng doesn’t want to look at Bo Wen’s… AND they were caught! Xiao De Ji wanted to bring Da Tong down BUT Da Tong dragged him along. Sweet! Everyone’s using Shan Ren’s “Didn’t eat yet or something” phrase now. LOL! (Love it that Wang Wei’s back to scold them!)

Ooohhh…finally some leads. Well, after looking at the note and going through so many of the booklets, of course, she would memorize the style and recognize it without needing the note to compare. But she’s always so careful, wanting to make sure. YES! This was moving forward.

AND yes, another break! You Shun had to use the money sometime, right? SO there comes another lead. Sweet! So funny that Xiao De Ji thought he could just put the blame on You Shun YET he accidentally spilled out of the amount without knowing. NICE!

Always love watching them getting along. And An Bang was also teasing Luo Gang about Sheng Nan? LOL!

And Xiao De Ji sure doesn’t learn. OF COURSE. If he was any good, he wouldn’t pick on Shi Jun or others. OR even resort to stealing like that.

Previews…more exciting scenes! And yes, I knew it! Wu Yong likes Xiao Yan! This could be it! Too funny but Ai Cheng kept messing up with his lines! LOL!
