iiAngelx3: I can’t wait till next week’s episode to see who saves Chu Qiao first! Chuner finally got what she wants, to marry Yan Xun. I pity her though, she loves someone who will never love her back. I do enjoy Xiao Ce’s character though, he adds some funny moments into this drama. I also love how Yuwen Yue is more open with himself about Chu Qiao.
