Gold Pretty Girl: The Name Changing Crisis

I actually had a feeling they changed the name because of some posts that Xiao Qiao tagged. But wasn’t sure so when I saw Jun Ya’s post about the name change, I immediately jumped to update. YUP! It has been awhile.

The drama is now called Dan Shen You Yue (單身有約), no English title attached yet so I won’t even attempt, lol. Aside from the name changing incident, it seems like the production’s going smoothly and everyone’s having fun.

From one of Xiao Qiao’s entries, she disclosed a possible relationship with Jun Ya’s character. Xiao Qiao’s character is Zhao Xin Xin (趙心心) and Jun Ya’s character is Kong Zhi Zheng (孔止正). Jun Ya also mentioned in one of his posts that his character owns a bar.

While they were filming, an incident occured that had caused both Xiao Qiao and Jun Ya to be touched by it. What happened? Derek Chen came to visit them (though he’s very busy doing his travel show of recent).

Borrow Your Love: Episode 11

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

When they arrived, Bai Ming Li finally told the girls of the truth and apologized to Xi Le for using her. Yet Bai Ming Li didn’t have too much time (or she thought she didn’t have anymore time) hence saying that she wanted to hear Ping An call her “Mom”. After much heart pouring moments from Bai Ming Li, Ping An finally called her “Mom” and she finally closed her eyes. Ping An yelled for the doctors, etc. Then both girls were forced to get out of there so they could work.

So outside in the waiting room, both girls had their own outbursts because of the sudden change of situations and all. Ye Chen claimed that he’d known already so Ping An attacked him, asking why he didn’t tell her. He let her hit him (literally and she can so hit) and vent out her anger before grabbing her and hugging her to him, trying to comfort her. Xi Le was indeed taking it even harder, considering how she’d lost everything – or so she claimed. Yet Zi Wen comforted her with saying how she still have him, etc. Later, more waiting and they were informed that Bai Ming Li had gone into a coma. So after the doctor left, Zi Wen and Ye Chen tried to convince both girls to go home and rest. Yet both didn’t want to. Zi Wen finally convinced Xi Le to go home since he reminded her that she was injured. Ye Chen stayed put with Ping An as she forced him to tell her all the details of the story, etc. After he was done, he said his own words of comfort yet encouraged her on. He said whether she hated her mother or loved her mother, she still should hope that her mother would wake up to compensate her.

Meanwhile, Zi Wen was working his own charms toward Xi Le – even at that time. He was trying to influence her with taking his side and how he wasn’t surprised that Bai Ming Li had used Xi Le all these times. She didn’t want him to badmouth her ‘mother’. Yet after he left, she discovered the wedding gown that Bai Ming Li ordered for Ping An thus going ballistic. She even discovered the letter Bai Ming Li wrote for Ping An and was even more frustrated, more than upset for being used and all. (Which was understandable of the breakdown.) And at that moment, Zi Wen was back to the hospital, going into Bai Ming Li’s room to tell her how he was the one behind all the schemes, saying that she’d finally got what she deserved. He tried to pull her mask off yet soon stopped himself, stating that she must wake up to see what she’d lost, not leave so comfortably like that.

One morning, Ping An was inside her mother’s room, tending to her. However, she was soon interrupted by Xi Le, telling Ping An to leave and let her and her mother be alone. Ping An got up but didn’t leave. She was just tending to some things at the side. Xi Le repeated in a fierce voice, asking if Ping An knew what it meant to leave others alone. Ping An finally gathered her stuffs and left the room. She didn’t really leave though since she was standing outside, crying over the fact that she couldn’t be present, tending to her mother like she wanted. Moreover, she was really hurt that Xi Le was very upset with her as well.

At the company, Zi Wen had already helped Ji Li Sheng acquired some control over the company so Hei Zai came to his office without caring for caution. Yet when Zi Wen realized that, he wanted to help Zi Wen move things forward faster.

Back at the hospital, Xi Le was already gone for the day so Ping An got a chance to go back in the room with her mother. In fact, she had fallen asleep by her mother’s bedside. Ye Chen soon came in and draped a jacket over her. That had alarmed her and woke her up. He told her to go home and rest first. Yet she said she wanted to stay some more since she was told to leave earlier when Xi Le came. Ye Chen, upon hearing that, was more than upset that Ping An got kicked out. He wanted to go reason with Xi Le yet Ping An stopped him. He said he would go buy some food for her so she agreed. She went with him yet didn’t leave far. She actually went to the nurse’s station so when Hei Zai came in to try to mess with the machines, Ping An came back with a nurse and was able to prevent the inevitable. Hei Zai fled yet Ping An chased after him as the nurse was calling others to come help. Ping An almost got attacked by Hei Zai yet Ye Chen came back in time to rescue her. Hei Zai was able to flee the scene after pushing Ping An toward Ye Chen. Yet Hei Zai had dropped his cell phone. Ping An suggested they gave the cell phone to the police. Ye Chen told her go back and tend to her mother since he had to go somewhere.

Back inside, Ping An realized that her mother had awakened. Ping An finally got a chance to have a heart-wrenching talk with her. From the subject of how Ping An got her name to her father, and many more. Bai Ming Li even took the time to tell Ping An to take good care of Xi Le, saying how much she owed Xi Le. She also told Ping An to tell Xi Le “thank you and sorry”. Indeed it was their last talk since after saying all those things she wanted to say, Bai Ming Li passed away. It wasn’t too pitiful because she saw Ping An’s father coming to pick her up.

Elsewhere, Ye Chen finally confronted Zi Wen. He saw Zi Wen’s cell phone number on Hei Zai’s cell phone hence wanting to seek Zi Wen out for a talk before doing anything. Zi Wen, of course, finally went all out to tell Ye Chen what was going on and how it made sense for him to avenge his parents’ death. Ye Chen said what Bai Ming Li had done was within the business wars and how she would get what she deserved, but Zi Wen doing all those things was crossing the line, etc. Ye Chen said he should’ve let Zi Wen served his sentence a long time ago so he wouldn’t keep stepping down the wrong path. However, Zi Wen said that because it wasn’t his parents so Ye Chen was able to stand around and say those things to him. So there they were arguing over what was going on. Ye Chen finally made his decision with exposing Zi Wen before things go further so it wouldn’t be too late for Zi Wen to return. Yet Zi Wen delivered the last blow by saying that Bai Ming Li was the one who killed Wei Zhen. That got to Ye Chen. Though he beat Zi Wen up and scolding Zi Wen for not being able to take good care of his sister, he didn’t do anything else. Around that time, he received a text message from Ping An that her mother had passed away.

When he came home, Ye Chen saw Ping An sitting around grieving over her mother’s death and mumbling things. Though he was still upset over the newly learned information yet he still held her to him, comforting her, knowing too well she had nothing to do with it. Though he silently apologized to Wei Zhen for not being able to seek justice for her like he’d promised, because he’d also promised Ping An that he would stay by her side.

So the will was finally read and Xi Le became the inheritor – as expected by Zi Wen since he switched the documents. (Probably the previous version since he’d sneak a look at it in the past somehow.) Ye Chen was beating himself up for not being more careful and losing the documents. Yet after a talk with Lawyer Huang, he tried to seek out Doctor Lu to ask for his help. Because they were both witnesses, they should try to resurrect the situation. However, after Doctor Lu left, Ping An said it was all right that Xi Le was in charge since she was more suitable for the job. Ye Chen told Ping An to stop protecting Xi Le since Xi Le had changed already. Ping An told Ye Chen not to badmouth Xi Le and that she believed Xi Le, because she’d known Xi Le longer. Ye Chen reasoned that because of different reasons, people would change.

Not being able to convince Ping An, Ye Chen decided to go ahead with his plan in exposing Zi Wen. He had told Sergeant Xu to meet up with him in front of Wei Zhen’s grave. (He actually apologized to Wei Zhen first for doing that but he have to stop Zi Wen from doing anymore wrongs.) Sergeant Xu first chided him for picking such a location since he preferred the noodles stall of their last meetup. He said if Ye Chen didn’t want to pay, he was willing. However, Ye Chen went right into asking him about the details of his sister’s death. Sergeant Xu told him about the details of the accident. However, he pointed out what was strange was how Wei Zhen was the one who jumped in front of the car. Ye Chen then reached into his pocket and was about to give Sergeant Xu the evidence (Hei Zai’s cell phone) when he spotted a bouquet of flowers near the tombstone. He ended up telling Sergeant Xu if he hadn’t told him he got something, Sergeant Xu wouldn’t help him. So Sergeant Xu left in a huff. Ye Chen reasoned to Wei Zhen that since Zi Wen still cared for Wei Zhen, they should give him a chance. Yet what Ye Chen found out next was another puzzle. The card left along with the bouquet of flowers didn’t include names or anything, just the location of the flower shop.
