My Sunshine Episode 16 Review & Recap (written by hoju & illustrated by chewywon)
Xiao Xiao is over to hang out with Mo Sheng, and Mo Sheng poses the question to her, why do you think anyone would always order a food that he doesn’t eat? Xiao Xiao, not understanding the context, gives her a “duh!” look and answers, if he doesn’t, he would die… or the guy likes to abuse himself. (*sigh* Yi Chen basically did go through a self-abuse phase when Mo Sheng left.) Xiao Xiao finds out that Yi Chen has not even told Yi Mei about marrying Mo Sheng and is very offended for her good friend that he has not thought about organizing a wedding or even buying her a ring.
Yi Chen arrives home to see open recipe books and a busy Mo Sheng in the kitchen. While he is enjoying watching this sight, Mo Sheng runs out and, noticing him there, borrows his laptop to use in the kitchen to look up recipes. A contented look comes over Yi Chen’s face when he sees Mo Sheng and his clothing together in the same closet.
A crash and yelp from the kitchen is heard and he runs over to see an anxious Mo Sheng scrubbing his laptop furiously after spilling hot soup all over it. Yi Chen, however, is only concerned about her scalded hand and rushes her off to treat the injury. At last, after Mo Sheng’s hand is all taken care of, he turns his attention to his computer, but it has been fried. A translated document that he needs for tomorrow has been lost. Mo Sheng hangs her head in utter discouragement until Yi Chen asks her how her English is and then tells her, “Come translate it for me.”
Our couple is working late into the night, but Mo Sheng is stuck on the translation. She finally gives up and asks Yi Chen, who comes over (and snuggles up nice and close behind her 😉 ) to help her.
They take a break for a late dinner and Mo Sheng is positively giddy with this almost-sweet atmosphere as she slurps her noodles.
They go home and are hard at work again until Mo Sheng finally dozes off on Yi Chen’s shoulder (when it’s his turn to be secretly giddy, right, Yi Chen?)
Mo Sheng: Yi Chen…
Yi Chen: Bought it nearby.
Mo Sheng: Mm. Tastes really good.
Yi Chen: Not bad.
Mo Sheng: Um.. I seem to have fallen asleep last night.
Yi Chen: (nods) Mm.
Mo Sheng: Then…
Yi Chen: I changed it.
Mo Sheng: (cringe)… Huh? Wha…? Oh, you mean my pajamas?
Yi Chen: Otherwise, what were you trying to ask?
Mo Sheng: I wanted to say, about the computer, I haven’t finished translating. Still missing a little bit.
Yi Chen: Hurry up and eat.
Oh, so Yi Chen exercised his husband rights to help Mo Sheng change into her PJs. :p
Peanuts: Fangirling WC eating his food! Yi Chen is the Shan Shan of this drama, always eating lol. My job is to search for all the eating and drinking gifs then upload for your enjoyment.
After laughing hysterically over Yi Chen’s fried computer, Xiao Xiao hangs up with Mo Sheng. She comments, how come everyone suddenly seems like they’ve found love so that even she wants to start dating? She suddenly seems to see Yuan Feng’s face before her eyes, but quickly shakes it off.
Ying Hui’s assistant, Linda (must be a common name for admin assistants… wasn’t Feng Teng’s assistant named Linda as well?) informs him that Mo Sheng had gotten married ten days ago.
Yi Chen tells Mo Sheng, he bought an apartment for Yi Mei’s parents and will be taking possession soon. They will be coming to Shanghai for the final paperwork. Mo Sheng happily prepares for their arrival. She researches a perfect restaurant to take the elders out for a meal and asks Xiao Hong for suggestions.
The day arrives and Yi Chen takes Yi Mei’s parents to see the new apartment and then out to eat… without Mo Sheng. The elders do not want to accept the apartment, saying they took in Yi Chen and raised him not so that he would repay them in the future. Yi Chen insists, however, and tells them they could consider it as his gift and contribution to Yi Mei’s dowry, which saddens Yi Mei. In the middle of their meal, Mo Sheng calls Yi Chen, and while he is gone to take the call, Yi Mei’s mother chastises her for not pursuing Yi Chen. She quickly cuts her off and tells her they are only brother-sister relationship now.
Mo Sheng has made reservations at a couple restaurants, but when Yi Chen tells her that they are already eating and that she should make her own dinner arrangements, she is hurt. That night, after he returns home, she tries to put up a brave front, but as they are about to retire to bed, Mo Sheng stops him. “Yi Chen, are you regretting now? That’s why you don’t want me to see your family and you haven’t told anyone that we are married?”
Mo Sheng sighs to Xiao Hong that she would really like to go on a vacation, or at least go on a business trip to get away. Xiao Hong promises to go talk to the editor-in-chief and see if she can arrange to send them somewhere. She then takes Mo Sheng to a supposedly recommended salon that had been featured in Treasure for both of them to get new hairdos. According to Xiao Hong, it’s “change your do, change your mood!”
Yuan Xiang He Law Firm is in full-on battle mode. There’s an important negotiation going on today that requires all three big bosses to be at the table. Of course, who could out-negotiate our Lawyer He? The end result is the other party lamenting that they had ended up being in our three bosses’ control during the negotiations. The entire office bursts out with excitement when the victory is announced.
To celebrate the huge win, the staff of the law firm weasel a team building out of their bosses. Lao Yuan has no problems with this: “Sure, sure, sure. Choose wherever you want the celebration. All costs will be paid for… by great Lawyer He.” The rowdy bunch want to party at one of the bosses’ homes, and Lao Yuan again agrees: “Sure. This time, we’ll head over to Lawyer He’s home.” Silence. Yi Chen does not look impressed. While everyone but Lao Yuan tries to backpedal and Xiang Heng even volunteers up his home, Yi Chen suddenly remembers what Mo Sheng had asked him the night before, about why he hasn’t let anyone know about their marriage. So, against everyone expectations… it’s hot pot at Lawyer He’s house!
Mo Sheng had instructed her hair stylist that it just needs to be “a little bit shorter.” And so, he was free to express his artistic abilities. But when the cape comes off, it’s very, um… artsy. At least she got a free cut out of it because she knew how to “appreciate” his work. Then, her “hairstylist” gets in trouble for cutting hair and is called back to his regular work of sweeping the floors. Xiao Hong and Mo Sheng both leave with new, ugly dos. (Although, honestly, this wig is waaaaaay better than the one she had been wearing before. At least the strands of hair can move instead of looking like they’ve been plastered together.)
Everyone is off and heading to Yi Chen’s house. Lao Yuan doesn’t forget to advertise for Rio, telling Xiang Heng to make sure he brings some. Xiang Heng asks why Yi Chen is acting so unlike himself, but Yi Chen only says, “Of course, there’s a reason… You will find out in an hour.” He makes a phone call to Mo Sheng telling her he has a company gathering, so she disappointedly tells him she will make dinner for herself.
