The New World: The Secret Headquarter

 

So the mystery is out! The secret headquarter is actually located at the Tainan National University of the Arts (國立臺南藝術大學).

Specifically, their filming were mostly at the College of Sound and Image Arts (音像藝術學院).

Also, Dong Han and Zi Yan’s ‘isolated’ meeting place was also filmed there.

停在街頭 吹吹風

Thế giới đối với chúng ta có rất nhiều kỳ vọng

Khi sự mệt nhọc đã kéo đến

Có thể nào cho phép được yếu đuối không?

The New World: Episode 7

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

The episode entered with Miao Miao preparing her breakfast and heading out the door. She thanked her bodyguards before getting in the car and heading to an unknown location. However, she was still griping over the stolen kiss, and how she didn’t stop Zi Hong previously. And she was also back to thinking about Zhang Guo Tang and the other matter, especially how she’d been targeted. She stopped herself from thinking any further about Zi Hong’s matters and forced herself to focus on driving. Before long, it was revealed that she was investigating about Project Jing Hai. It was unfruitful, considering how that file was locked. Meanwhile, Zi Hong was looking for Jia Yuan at work, wondering why she wasn’t there. According to another coworker, Jia Yuan had asked for a long break.

Back at the secret headquarter, the team was discussing about the recent murder. Chen Jie, of course, was the one presenting the case. After Chen Jie’s presenting of evidences and reports from the lab, Chief Zheng was pondering if it was Zhang Guo Tang getting rid of his own people. Zi Yan jumped in to say that it could possibly be Jiang Jian Ming. Ah Gang agreed with Zi Yan. He said that considering how Jiang Jian Ming had a lot of friends, whether the law-abiding type or the ones within the gangs. Then there was the whole thing with Zhang Guo Tang attacking Jiang Jian Ming time after time with different tactics, so it would make sense that Jiang Jian Ming wanted to take actions. Xiao He finally got his chance to talk, saying that he had already found the song in the card, it was indeed the song “The New World” (新世界). What he found strange was how cards were usually having birthday or Christmas songs, but this type of card, it was the first time he saw it. They were saying how the card could either be left there by accident or on purpose. While Chen Jie was inputting his thoughts, he immediately turned to Dong Han. Indeed, a flashback revealed the reason for Dong Han being disturbed. The others finally turned to look at Dong Han as well. Chief Zheng was asking Dong Han for his views. He didn’t have anything to say about it. Chen Jie was still glaring him down. Yet Dong Han didn’t care to pay attention. he was very troubled by now. Chief Zheng said regardless of the reason or its details, they still had to turn it over to the local station. Their main goal was Zhang Guo Tang so they had to figure out his moves soon. Chen Jie and Ah Gang were in charge of seeking out Zhang Guo Tang while Dong Han and Zi Yan were responsible for Yong Mei’s safety. They had to increase their vigilance even more from now on. After saying that, Chief Zheng dismissed them, considering how he had to seek out Jiang Jian Ming.

And just like that, Chen Jie and Dong Han were once again in another face off. Chief Zheng barely left and Dong Han was just making a move yet Chen Jie stop him to interrogate. Zi Yan, Ah Gang, and Xiao He were really feeling the hectic atmosphere of the room once again. Chen Jie asked Dong Han to whom the phone number actually belonged. Dong Han was wondering what Chen Jie was up to again. Chen Jie said that the records didn’t show that Dong Han had called home. Dong Han turned to ask Xiao He if he had a look. Xiao He, fearing Dong Han’s wrath, told Dong Han that he was just following Chen Jie’s order. Chen Jie told Dong Han not to lead them around in circles anymore. He said that the number was registered by a false name, so Dong Han should just tell him. He continued on by asking if that false name was Zhang Guo Tang. Dong Han smirked, asking if Chen Jie really wanted to go there. He told Chen Jie if Chen Jie really wanted to know, then go investigate on his own. Chen Jie said it would be much simpler if Dong Han would just cooperate and say it out. Dong Han had on his taunting look by now, saying that Chen Jie didn’t make things easier before with suspecting him and not trusting fellow cops. He told Chen Jie that life wasn’t just simple yes or no. He went on to lay out the choices for Chen Jie to choose, whether he, Liu Dong Han, was the mole. He repeated his previous suggestion, telling Chen Jie to go investigate on his own if Chen Jie really wanted to know the truth. Chen Jie said if Dong Han wanted to do that, then he was willing. Dong Han taunted Chen Jie again, he told Chen Jie to go ahead. Zi Yan finally got up from her desk and interfered, telling the guys to knock it off. She also told Chen Jie that she wanted to withdraw her previous suspicion regarding the mole. Chen Jie asked if she was playing him. She said if he didn’t want to before turning to Dong Han, asking him to whom that phone number belonged. Dong Han turned her down as well, saying that he couldn’t do that. She said if he couldn’t do it, then great, she would use her way to solve it. She asked Chen Jie the number once again, and Chen Jie actually obliged. What Zi Yan did next, shocked Chen Jie so much that he thought she was crazy. What did she do? She dialed the number. (LOL!) She said it would be faster that way rather than keep guessing, and they would finally get an answer. Chen Jie asked her what if it was Zhang Guo Tang. She said they would still know before shutting Chen Jie up. A woman answered the phone and Zi Yan pretended to be someone taking surveys from citizens. The woman on the phone told Zi Yan she was busy so she couldn’t help. Zi Yan apologized and hung up before turning to ask who that person was. Dong Han played it smack by saying maybe it was Zhang Guo Tang’s woman, lol. He gave Chen Jie an encouraging clap on the shoulder before saying that Chen Jie should quickly investigate since everyone was depending on his answer. He added that he wasn’t going to flee, he was waiting for Chen Jie to come and get him. Then he left. After that, Zi Yan turned to Chen Jie, asking if that was enough already. She went on to say if Chen Jie didn’t think that was enough, she could go and ask if that person was Dong Han’s mother or sister or someone else in his family. She could exhaust all the questions for Chen Jie, if he wanted. She said that it was more than enough already before leaving as well. Chen Jie was more than pissed off because of how the situation turned out. He turned to ask Ah Gang and Xiao He if they thought he was wrong as well. Ah Gang did the ‘X’ symbol with his hands, stating that Chen Jie shouldn’t ask him before leaving the room. Xiao He, being the only one left, totally felt the pressure of answering. He said he didn’t know who was right or wrong yet he didn’t like how things turned out at all. He was forced to leave as well, knowing that the intensity of the atmosphere was too thick, even if the others were already gone.

Zi Yan found Dong Han at their ‘isolated’ meeting place. She settled down next to him before asking if the woman on the phone was him mother. He didn’t answer at first, still pulling the long face. She asked if he was hiding that from her as well. He soon responded and told her yes, it was his mother. He went on further by disclosing of her health condition and how she was still working. He also said that what his mother feared the most was receiving a call regarding him. Zi Yan said that her father was the same when he heard that she was going to become a cop. Yes, both parents feared that they would receive the call telling them that their children had died on duty. Zi Yan tried to make light of the situation by mimicking the call, and they laughed about it. Yet Dong Han soon turned serious and told her about his childhood, and how he’d always seen her making Christmas lights. Although his mother made Christmas lights, but they had never have a Christmas tree at their place. However, his mother did take him to see public Christmas trees, where the lights were already placed on there nicely, sparkling. Upon seeing the lights shining brightly on the trees, she was very satisfied and very proud of her work. Zi Yan said that her father was the same, but with his culinary skills. Zi Yan ended up taking over the cooking tasks, but her father seemed very proud. Yet she said she could no longer see him smile, because he had already left. A brief silence between them before Dong Han asked her had she ever thought if one day she died, what would happen? She said she would live to be 100, and he will as well. Then later when they were on one of their missions to protect Yong Mei, Zi Yan texted Dong Han while they were in the car, saying that they would definitely live on to be 100. He texted her back and told her not to text during their mission. YET texted her again about a minute later telling her that they didn’t need to live to be 100, he could still like her. And that had made her smile. Still later, he was seen staring at Zi Yan and smiling when he saw her smile while watching Miao Miao and Jia Yuan bicker. (Or was he?)

Zi Hong came home to see Miao Miao waiting for him after a trip to see Chairman Jiang, wanting to lend some money. She told him she tried to investigate regarding Project Jing Hai yet it was like he said, it was locked. She also said that the lady there promised to help her think of a way. He asked her if she still wanted to investigate. She said she still wanted to, because she wanted to know the truth and also because she trusted her grandfather. She then confronted him about that one time, asking him the real reason why he didn’t shake her grandfather’s hand – whether it was because he couldn’t due to his injury or because he didn’t want to. He didn’t answer. She then asked him about how long he’d scorched through, investigating her grandfather. He said since high school. She said that it meant he’d knew where they resided at yet didn’t meet up with her. He said that he didn’t like it that he was being interrogated, and she said she didn’t like it either. Soon, he said that he didn’t know if he had a future or anything to think about love or involve anyone. She wanted him to admit that he liked her, so he did. She then broke down, saying that she was so scared of what happened, and that her grandfather had said if the injury wasn’t on his hand, it would’ve been at his heart. She didn’t know why she didn’t apologize and thank him yet just kept yelling at him. Then when he took her to see his mother, she wanted to say thank you yet she wasn’t able to. She asked him if he was all right with her being so temperamental. He said he didn’t mind since he was even worst, so he wasn’t scared. Then they went to the forest again to check out the trees. She asked him if he could guess who had placed the wooden tags on the trees. He said it had to be Xi Shuai – and she agreed, because Xi Shuai’s father was a woodcarver. She said she didn’t know where Xi Shuai was, but was wondering why he’d placed those wooden tags on there. Zi Hong said that Xi Shuai must have seen the news articles that she did, and had returned already hence doing so. Xi Shuai wanted them to know that he’d returned and still remembered them. Miao Miao said it was her grandfather that had sparked her inspiration with doing those memorial articles. She told Zi Hong not to be suspicious of him anymore. Zi Hong stayed quiet again, but Miao Miao said she would find a way to make him believe in her grandfather, just like how she believed him. She then said that she would help him investigate the truth regarding the incident of 20 years ago, but asked him to promise her not to go seek out Zhang Guo Tang on his own. He didn’t trust cops. She asked him why, but he didn’t answer exactly, just saying that he didn’t want to argue with her. She sighed out in exasperation before asking if it had to do with her grandfather. He said perhaps there was and perhaps not. She didn’t know why he kept picking on her grandfather. He said her grandfather was the first one to sign hence allowing others to follow so it was suspicious. After all that was said and done, he found it hard to trust anyone, especially the cops. She said that it seemed like he didn’t trust her either. He said he believed her, that he truly believed her. Yet she said it seemed like he was still keeping her in the dark regarding different matters. In the end, he told her that he was very happy to hear her call his mother “Mom”, and said that it seemed like the past Miao Miao had returned. He told her that if he wanted to go see his mother from now on, to go ahead, but wait for a certain day. She asked him what he meant. It seemed like he was driving her away again. He aggravated her on purpose by telling her if she wanted to leave, just leave. She questioned whether he really liked her or just the past her because of their childhood memories. He said maybe so, and received a slap from her after he mocked the kiss of that one time. She said she wasn’t leaving either, saying she wanted to wait and see if he would leave (aka giving up on the idea of going against Zhang Guo Tang on his own). He left after saying that they didn’t need to say goodbye.

Chief Zheng finally confronted Jiang Jian Ming. He went straight out asking if it had anything to do with Jiang Jian Ming. Chairman Jiang laughed and said that if Chief Zheng thought he was the killing type. No, Chief Zheng meant there were many people he knew. Chairman Jiang laughed again, a little louder this time, asking if Chief Zheng meant that he had paid some hired gun to do the deed. Chief Zheng said he only wanted to ask as part of the routine. Chairman Jiang asked if Chief Zheng didn’t believe him. Chief Zheng said that since it was a complicated matter, it couldn’t be disposed of just because someone said so. Chairman Jiang was definitely insulted. He said his answer was obvious, telling Shen You Fu to escort Chief Zheng out. Chief Zheng attempted to get through him but failed. He finally said even if he believed Chairman Jiang, Zhang Guo Tang might not. Chairman Jiang asked him what he meant. Chief Zheng quickly explained that if Zhang Guo Tang suspected him, he have to be very careful from now on. Then Chief Zheng told Shen You Fu that he didn’t need anyone showing him the way out, he knew. So he left.

Then came Zi Hong’s confrontation with Jia Yuan. He handed Jia Yuan an envelope, telling her to return to work tomorrow. It was the check, containing the money he lent from Jiang Jian Ming earlier. She asked where the money came from, and he said it wasn’t important, because it was hers now. She could use that money to end a certain thing. She asked him again where he lent it from, and he told her not to mind it. She asked him about how he was going to repay it with his current wage, and if she had to pay it back with him. He said she didn’t have to, only he would be paying the money back. She asked if he was pitying her, and he said no. She then asked if he was apologizing for what he’d said to her that night, and he also said no. She leaned into him and asked if he wanted to sleep with her. He told her not to joke around like that. She said what if she wanted to. He told her to knock it off, pay off her debts, and then return to work tomorrow before leaving. She stopped him, saying she hadn’t agreed. She said with her, she could repay the money in several months yet he had to use his whole lifetime and couldn’t repay it. She wasn’t going to let him waste his youth like that. He told her to knock it off or he would get mad. She taunted by saying that he actually looked quite cute when he was mad before tearing the check up. He went ballistic, yelling at her and asking her what she was doing. She hugged him, telling him not to be mad since she knew he was just worried for her. She had already accepted his concern yet she said it was enough, begging him not to force her anymore. He asked her if what she said to him that night was a message for him to help her, because the others were forcing her to continue taking ‘cases’. She said it wasn’t. She said she was just saying that. He said if he had known, and she said it wasn’t so. She finally let go of him and retrieved pieces of the check on the floor. He said that he would go get another one yet she told him not to. He said if she didn’t want to accept it, he could always go straight to the others and talk to them. She asked him if she was speaking a foreign language hence him not understanding, because she said that he wasn’t the only one knowing how to get mad, she was capable of it too. She wanted to rely on herself, regardless of consequences. Yet she said the others had told her that if she was willing to go to Japan on a special assignment, they could cut her debt back quickly, and she could even earn enough for a new house for her and Xuan Xuan. Yet she had turned them down. So she told Zi Hong if he kept doing that, she might end up changing her mind. She ended the conversation by saying that she didn’t care about the check because money wasn’t what she wanted, but what she wanted he couldn’t give her. No one could save her at that point except herself.

Meanwhile elsewhere, Zhang Guo Tang was sending off his good brother by burning a set of tux and a promise to seek out the killers. He said he would make them pay one by one. So it wasn’t too out of it when he and his brothers were out casing the joint the next day. And indeed, he was ready to make a move regardless. He called his ‘cop’ friend to check on the situation, asking if that person was making a move or not.

So when Zi Yan caught Chen Jie on the phone with someone, it wasn’t too out of character to ask him about it. He said he didn’t need to report to her. She said that was true since he was the team leader, not Liu Dong Han. Yet she also said that it seemed like it wasn’t the same phone he often used. He said the superiors had given that phone to him so it was easier to report back and for safety measures. He asked if Zi Yan still have other suspicions. She said she didn’t. Then she handed him new paperwork, saying that Yong Mei wanted to go out later. He looked at the paper and said he thought that Mrs. Luo forbade all activities at the moment. Zi Yan said that Yong Mei insisted so Mrs. Luo couldn’t do anything about it. Chen Jie told her to go, but be extra careful, especially keeping an eye out for Dong Han. Zi Yan asked if Dong Han was also going. Chen Jie said if it wasn’t for Yong Mei and Zi Yan’s persistence in speaking up for Dong Han, he already got kicked out. So Chen Jie said whatever happens later, Zi Yan would be responsible for it.

Jia Yuan arrived at the newspaper place the next day in time to overhear Miao Miao’s conversation with Yong Mei. Jia Yuan tried to focus on her task at the computer, narrowing down the problem to loose cable before firing the computer up once again. Miao Miao was confiding in Yong Mei with how perhaps Zi Hong never cared for her, but only their childhood memories. It got Yong Mei worried. Yet Miao Miao soon moved on to tease Yong Mei with liking Dong Han. Yong Mei ended up being conned by Miao Miao with admitting that she indeed liked Dong Han. Miao Miao asked her if Dong Han knew. Yong Mei said not yet but he will know today. So after some more random teasing and a set of concerned advices from Miao Miao, the two hung up. It wasn’t until then that Miao Miao realized that she hadn’t lost the article from the previous day and how Jia Yuan was there. Jia Yuan said that she stopped by immediately to save the day. The two joked awhile more before settling down again.

At the charity event, Dong Han and Zi Yan accompanied Yong Mei and kept caution at all times. It seemed to go quite well until Chen Jie showed up and said that he wans’t going to leave her alone to fend, considering how they were a team. Zi Yan said that Dong Han was also part of their team. Chen Jie didn’t seem to think so. He was back with keeping an eye on Dong Han.

Yet Yong Mei had other plans. She took Dong Han upstairs to a more quite location to talk. She asked him if he thought it was senseless. She admitted that it was senseless too yet she still wanted to come. He asked her why. He quickly retaliated and said it was all right that she didn’t want to say it. It was better off that they returned home anyway. Yet she smiled and turned to face him. She said that it was because of him. He asked her what she meant. She pulled his earpiece out and said she didn’t want anyone to disturb them. And then just like that Zi Yan was searching for them both and asking where Dong Han was. Even Chen Jie and Ah Gang were on the search for them. (Nice, it gave Chen Jie a chance to nab at Dong Han.) Now it was Chen Jie’s turn to call out for Dong Han, telling him to answer. Then they separated again to go in different directions and continue the search. And then it was back to the conversation with Dong Han and Yong Mei again. Or more like it was Yong Mei still talking and Dong Han looked like he was weighing his options. Anyway, Yong Mei was saying how she’d fallen in love in the past, but ended up getting hurt because that person didn’t love her, only her background. She continued by saying that she’d promised herself that if she were to fall in love again, she would choose for herself. She then checked in with Dong Han, and asked if he understood. He said he hoped he had misunderstood. She said he didn’t, because the person she was referring to was him. She said that she hoped he didn’t mind her straightforward personality, and he said he didn’t mind. She interrupted by saying it was all right that he didn’t like her since they could start all over again at zero. He asked her if it was because he’d saved her. She said it wasn’t. He finished his sentence by saying that was just his duty. She said what she saw was his bravery. Then when he comforted her that one time regarding the newspaper, she saw his gentleness. He said he wasn’t that good of a person like she made him out to be. She said that time will tell. He finally had to cut her off by saying that it was against his duties. She said she could wait until after his mission was finished. He said that he would leave immediately afterward. She said it couldn’t be too far. She said that she won’t force him into giving her a chance yet she would work harder to convince him. He still didn’t say anything, so she thought it was good enough, considering how he didn’t outright say no. And that was also when Zi Yan arrived at the scene, seeing them so close. Well, they were standing close, not being intimate or anything. Yong Mei, hearing Zi Yan’s footsteps, turned around and apologized for going off like that. She said that she just needed some fresh air. That was also when Dong Han turned around, looking guiltily at Zi Yan. Zi Yan’s only reaction was pointing toward her own ear piece, indicating that Dong Han wasn’t wearing his. Dong Han wasn’t the one adjusting his ear piece back in but it was Yong Mei doing the deed, which caused another reaction from Zi Yan. That reaction was shocked beyond words, because Dong Han didn’t bother stopping Yong Mei or stepping away from her. Yong Mei apologized after that, saying it was her fault so Zi Yan shouldn’t chide him. He walked over to Zi Yan after Yong Mei left, still displaying the guilty look. She didn’t say anything to him, but just turned and left.

Chen Jie was so giving Dong Han an earful, saying how even if Yong Mei didn’t understand or know, Dong Han should know better. Before long, Dong Han told Chen Jie to shut up. (LOL!) Chen Jie asked Dong Han to repeat it. Dong Han told him that someone was carrying a gun. Dong Han went on by saying that they shouldn’t injure the innocents so it was better to lure the other person outside. Chen Jie asked how. Dong Han said that Chen Jie, Ah Gang, and Zi Yan should escort Yong Mei out so the other person would follow. Dong Han said that he would fallback. Chen Jie wanted to stick with Dong Han. Dong Han said what if there were others outside. Chen Jie retorted by saying how would he know if Dong Han wouldn’t shoot him in the back. Dong Han told him to take a gamble. Chen Jie finally made a move while blurting out commands to the others. Zi Yan immediately grabbed Yong Mei and hurried out of there – with the suspect following after. Dong Han used that opportunity to follow him.

While they were making their way out of there, Yong Mei asked about Dong Han. Zi Yan said that Dong Han was following them from behind. Chen Jie turned around and told the other person to stop while Ah Gang and Zi Yan pulled out their guns as well. Zi Yan had used herself to shield in front of Yong Mei at the same time. Chen Jie then yelled out for Ah Gang to restrain the other person. Yet what shocked them all was Chen Jie telling Dong Han to stop and toss his gun on the ground. Dong Han yelled out what Chen Jie was trying to pull while Ah Gang paused in his tracks. Zi Yan even yelled out for Chen Jie, wondering what he was up to. Chen Jie told her to shut up and repeated his order with telling Dong Han to toss his gun. Yong Mei then spoke up to ask Chen Jie about his intention. Chen Jie said he would explain when they returned. He repeated his command once again. Dong Han said if Chen Jie wanted to, just shoot him to get it over with. Chen Jie told Dong Han not to taunt him. Ah Gang told Chen Jie not to be like that at the moment. He still didn’t listen. Ah Gang had no choice but to proceed with his task, telling the suspect to kneel down before kicking his weapon away. Dong Han knew it wasn’t that simple. Ah Gang got overpowered while searching for other weapons. It was also then that Dong Han reacted, striking at the suspect to save Ah Gang. Yet Chen Jie still yelled at Dong Han, telling him not to move. Dong Han told Chen Jie not to shoot, saying that he wanted the suspect alive. So they engaged in a fight. It was too obvious the suspect wasn’t a match for Dong Han. Yet he retreated and pulled out a knife. Dong Han removed his own tie and used that as a weapon. It was effective at first yet the knife had cut Dong Han’s tie in several more moves. Dong Han didn’t give up, finally restraining the suspect. Ah Gang soon rushed forward to take over for Dong Han, telling Dong Han it was all right to let go. Dong Han loosened up at last after Ah Gang attempted to undo Dong Han’s grip from the suspect. While he was handcuffing the suspect, Chen Jie yelled out that it was more important to get Yong Mei home. He yelled at Ah Gang when Ah Gang didn’t respond. Ah Gang yelled back, saying that it was enough already, and that Dong Han could go, considering how they were all on the same team. Chen Jie returned his glare to Dong Han yet Dong walked away to continue his duty while Ah Gang yelled at Chen Jie to help him. Zi Yan finally put away her gun while Yong Mei walked out from behind her to ask about Dong Han’s well being. Dong Han said he was fine and told Zi Yan to get Yong Mei home. While Yong Mei settled into the car, she finally discovered something, yelling out Dong Han’s name. That was when Zi Yan turned around and saw what they had all missed before. Dong Han was injured. Zi Yan rushed over to him and grab onto his sides, telling him to sit down. Dong Han said they could wait until they were done with the mission, but she told him to sit down first. Yet he pushed her away and proceeded to open the car door again. But that was also when he crashed. Both Zi Yan and Yong Mei rushed over to tend to him.

我甚麼都沒有 只是有一點吵
wo shen me dou mei you   zhi shi you yi dian chao
I don’t have much, just a little bit of disruptiveness
如果你感到寂寞 我帶給你熱鬧
ru guo ni gan dao ji mo   wo dai gei ni re nao
If you feel lonely, I could present you with some liveliness
為你繞一繞 沒有甚麼大不了 卻可以讓你微笑
wei ni rao yi rao   mei you shen me da bu liao   que ke yi rang ni wei xiao
Going around and about because of you, it’s no big deal, as long as it could make you smile

其實我很煩惱 只是你看不到
qi shi wo hen fan nao    zhi shi ni kan bu dao
Actually, I’m very troubled, it’s just that you can’t see it
如果我也不開心 怕你轉身就逃
ru guo wo ye bu kai xin    pa ni zhuan shen jiu tao
If I’m also unhappy, I fear that it would affect you thus causing you to flee
愛上一個人 一定要讓他相信 這世界多麼美好
ai shang yi ge ren   yi ding yao rang ta xiang xin    zhe shi jie duo me mei hao
Loving someone, one must let her believe that there are lots of beautiful things in this world
對每個人 都說還好 我的心我的青你不需要明瞭
dui mei ge ren    dou shuo hai hao   wo de xin wo de qing ni bu xu yao ming liao
Toward each person, always say fortunate things. My frame of mind, you wouldn’t understand.
只要我對你好 這樣的溫柔你要不要
zhi yao wo dui ni hao    zhe yang de wen rou ni yao bu yao
Just want to treat you well, that kind of gentleness, do you want it?

其實你愛我像誰 扮演甚麼角色我都會
qi shi ni ai wo xiang shui    ban yan shen me jue se wo dou hui
Actually, who do you want me to be? I’m capable of performing all sort of roles
快不快樂我無所謂 為了你開心 我忘記了累不累
kuai bu kuai le wo wu suo wei    wei le ni kai xin    wo wang ji le lei bu lei
Happiness or sadness, it doesn’t matter. Just as long as you’re happy, I would forget all the fatigue
其實你愛我像誰 任何的表情我都能給
qi shi ni ai wo xiang shui    ren he de biao qing wo dou neng gei
Actually, who do you want me to be? I’m capable of giving any types of expressions
Woo~  在你身上學會流眼淚
Woo~ zai ni shen shang xue hui liu yan lei
Woo~ Being by your side, I’ve learned to shed tears
