Fall In Love With You Again 转身说爱你 or Zhuan Shen Shuo Wo Ai Ni is a Chinese drama that aired in February 2015. Sadly, even with big names like Wang LuoDan, Super Junior’s Siwon and Yuan Hong, it did not get a lot of attention from international fans. I actually watched it recently and enjoyed most of the 30 episodes. It is light hearted and not centered about illogical things either. This series really has a nice balance between story, character developpment and drama. Watch out for Siwon’s abs! *_*
Episode starts with some high technology, weird voice announcer talking about Economy/News and other colorful screens: we are in the future. Li Ming Yu (Wang Luo Dan) is doing house chores while thinking she should have cared more about her apperance/what she eats when she was younger to not become what she is now.
Cute wife-alarm wakes Song Chen Xi (Choi Si Won) up.
Cut to the hospital. We see a man suffering on the hospital bed while the nurse tell the girl to go pay the hospital fees. I am assuming the girl is the sister of LMY.
Back to the main couple. LMY receives a call and seen the message she becomes mad at hubby SCX. Actually, it is her sister calling to borrow money, again. They need 1000 yuans. LMY don’t want to, but SCX says that they should help the family. LMY then starts counting all the money their bills, which sums up to a huge number (they don’t say how much..). She starts crying and says to LMY that he always say he will improve and make their living style better, but never does anything. Apparently, he passes all his days repairing an old boat. She is disappointed at all his false promises for a better life.
Yu Chu Hao (Yuan Hong) talks with his father. Even after so many years, YCH still doesn’t want to herited his father’s business. YCH would never be under his father because he doesn’t want to finish like his mother.
We see LMY going to see her best friend, famous lawyer now, to ask for job. Her friend offers money to her, which she tries to refuse. She takes it anyway, because she has too much money troubles.
LMY’s sister comes to her house to ask for money. SCX says not to worry, but LMY says she will not borrow money even if her brother-in-law is having surgery right now. She says she is mad her sister/brother-in-law spend all their money and the money of her father to create a failed company. They even used their father’s house morgage and probably led to the early death of their father.😥
SCX offers to lend her money and says LMY is too selfish toward her family. Ouch. LMY then starts listing everything she has done for him: house chores, her youth, having a baby. She leaves.
He chases after her and tells her that they have to stay optimist. LMY cries and says he has such a low salary and it is her how had to work hard everyday to make sure they have enough money for their daughter’s education. She says she can endure a poor lifestyle since she chose it when she married him, but she cannot see her daughter go through this kind of life. She says if she knew beforehand, she would never had marrried him.
Then she has her accident. Which brings her back in time, to just before she met SCX.
She is back living with her father and her sister. Her sister is going to see her boyfriend and tells her to behave well when they meet.
She goes to an interview in marketing and remembers the memory of it (she is creeped out). She realizes it is her chance to restart.
She remembers her fist encounter with SCX. She hesitates as if she wants to go meet SCX again or not. She runs after his car when she realizes that she just missed the chance to meet her true love.😦
She talks with her best friend BB and asks her if she believes in time travelling.
YCH is at a party with friends (reunion kind of thing). They seem to have a good time.
Both YCH and LMY are trapped in the same elevator. LMY thinks YCH is a pervert. LOL
She talks about her frustration over the failed interview. People around the table are surprised to hear she knows who was actually hired. She gets mad with her sister, saying she is too egocentric in the house and afraid near her boyfriend.
She reflects over her life and admits someone is missing in her life (SCX of course!).
Walking around, she meets SCX and sees his abs @_@ (daydreaming-gotta admit Siwon’s abs are gorgeous xD). He jumps in the water and she worries (for nothing of course). He wonders how she knows his name. LMY starts running, wondering if she is running because she doesn’t know what to answer or because she is afraid of their relationship. Of course, she hits a piece of wood and faints =_=
He brings her to his house. She fakes that she doesn’t know him and leaves. His friend assumes she must be a stalker. His friend asks SCX for money and he says no problemo. LMY comes back and stops him. Both friends are surprised to see that LMY knows that SCX wants to repair a boat. She starts a whole speech on how your lifestyle when you are young may impact your future wife and children’s lives. LOL
She reflects againg, thinking he is always the same. Didn’t change one bit. She decides to avoid him to not make the same mistakes again.
She goes shopping and change haircut: she wants to change herself. She tells BB that she wants to become like her (of the future): a successful strong woman.
End of episode 1
Note: I will probably only write one episode recap for this drama, because the drama is not good enough for me to rewatch it all again. However, I strongly suggest it ^^
