Don’t be So Proud (别那么骄傲) – Chapter 5.7


On this last day of 2016 (well, for at least half the world at posting time), I want to wish our readers a happy New Year! May 2017 be a year of health and joy for all of you!

It has finally been announced that Proud of Love (web drama adaptation of Don’t Be So Proud, albeit it has taken many liberties with the plot) Season 2 will be airing. No firm date has been given that I can find yet. We only know that it will be “soon,” looks like January. Since the official Weibo account of the drama is starting to show clips and pics of Season 1 to revive everyone’s enthusiasm, it should be in the reasonably near future. We’ll keep you informed when we find out more news. (Peanuts: According to the latest weibo, it’ll be released on 11th Jan, a day before my birthday lol)

Boo! Nope, I’m not Peanuts. You guys get me for a couple of updates, and then I promise I’ll return her to you. We are generally keeping to the published version of the story, but this whole “random testing” situation got cut out when the novel went to the printing press. It was just too funny to not include, so we decided to keep it for your reading pleasure.

Who said Shen Xi can’t come up with ideas in the face of difficult situations? And bahahahaha to Shen Xi’s description of “lively and smart, playful and agile.”

Don’t be So Proud (别那么骄傲) – Chapter 5.2


Do you like to eat watermelon or go to karaoke? Obviously Shen Xi loves to eat fruits. It should be included in the drama. The karaoke was included in the drama but quite different from the novel. You’ll have a guest translator next week for the most sensational part of the novel, which can’t even be shown in the drama lol.
