My Sunshine (何以笙箫默): Episode 24 Review and Recap


Heehee, I got allocated to recap this episode full of WC 🙂 Due to popular demand, I asked chewywon to design a cover which shows WC with nothing on, lol. Actually I was a bit disappointed as the long-awaited scene is so tame. However I am one who focus on WC’s face, not his body so I am still okay. Yui and Himmy, are you still hungry lol? The proposal scene and the conversation on the bed are the highlights of this sweet episode.

Silent Separation (何以笙箫默) – Gu Man (Final Epilogue 3.3)


As I’ve written before unfortunately all good things in life must come to an end so this is the final epilogue for the novel, sob sob…. The drama will also end tonight so I am in line with my Wallace Chung, not a step in front or behind 😛 What do you expect but happy ending with a baby to complete the family of three. Of course they’ll live happily ever after in the novel as well as in our heart.

Firstly I want to thank my co-translator lidge for her help, tolerance and dedication in completing this translation as well as Shan Shan. Then I want to thank the readers for their patient, comments and support. After 2 Gu Man’s novels, I need a break so don’t expect speedy update for Blazing Sunlight. Anyway Gu Man is still writing book 2 which will take sometime to get published so I can take my own sweet time 😛  I also want to take this opportunity to wish bongsd a Happy Birthday. May she finds her He Yi Chen and have a He Zhao 🙂

My Sunshine (何以笙箫默): Episode 22 Review and Recap

1This is another quite boring episode with nothing much happening except Mo Sheng and Yi Chen going on a honeymoon to Mauritius. Hence not many gifs on WC that I can fangirl 😦 Oh, why hoju always gets to recap the holiday parts when I am the one who like to go on a holiday often lol?


This is Yi Mei’s handsome hubby, not the one bongsd showed you. Does he look like a Korean? Better looking than WC lol?

My Sunshine (何以笙箫默): Episode 21 Review and Recap


I nearly burst a blood vessel in my last recap.  Thank goodness this one has red bean slush (and according to Yi Chen, red bean is good for my health, right?) and lots of other sweetness…

Peanuts: Oh so envious that hoju gets to recap the HK parts. This is one of my fav city as well as WC’s fav city, lol.

My Sunshine (何以笙箫默): Episode 20 Review and Recap


Updating from what hoju told you in her last post, the young WC and TY will be shown in episodes 31 to 32 in a ‘what-if’ scenario. If you want to know how it could be done, read epilogue 3.2 . Heehee, I am right after all. Shouldn’t have listened to bongsd telling me they gonna have a special 😛 The 2 broadcasting stations in China have allocated 18 nights to broadcast My Sunshine but the drama has been trimmed to 32 episodes which means 16 nights. Hence the production company has edited a condensed version, akin to a movie to be broadcast over the last 2 nights.

After the boring episode 19, we have some live action in this episode. I’ve been telling bongsd, hoju & chewywon that those who are doing the even number episodes are the lucky one, namely me & chewywon 😛 My sympathy to hoju and bongsd for having to endure plenty of Yi Mei and Ying Hui, lol. We have an exciting as well as sad episode of the cool and calm Yi Chen losing control 😦

My Sunshine (何以笙箫默): Episode 19 Review and Recap

1Update: The latest news from here says that the drama proper is actually only 32 episodes.  There is going to be an episode 33-36, which is going to be a condensed form of the entire story, but it will use Wallace Chung and Tang Yan playing the young Yi Chen and Mo Sheng.  Of course, China’s TV is fickle and this may change, but we will do our best to keep you informed. So, if the whole story can be condensed down into 4 episodes, is that an indication of how much the full drama is dragging? :p

Peanuts got to recap Yi Chen and Mo Sheng cycling together down a tree-lined path last episode, and I get scene after scene of Ying Hui and his eager beaver assistant this episode.  😦 I’m done reserving judgment on him and officially declare he is not my favourite character.  Thank goodness for the three bosses of the law firm  to give me a few laughs or I might have thrown something at my screen.

He Yi Chen versus Ying Hui.  Round 1.  Fight!

My Sunshine (何以笙箫默): Episode 18 Review and Recap


We have reached the halfway mark of the drama so what do you think of it? This is not a bad drama yet it is also not a great one. In my honest opinion it can not measure up to Boss & Me which is reflected in its rating. I’ve to say the saving grace is WC. He elevates this drama to above average for me. This episode is mainly on the uni’s centennial celebration and  Yi Chen and Mo Sheng meeting Ying Hui. Thank you for all the comments. I do read each and every one of them but unfortunately I don’t have time to reply all of them. If I didn’t reply your comment, please write more until I respond, lol.

My Sunshine (何以笙箫默): Episode 17 Review and Recap

1Is it bad if I confess that every time I see young Yi Chen leaning forward a little bit, all I can see in my mind is a turtle?  And when Yi Chen and Mo Sheng go on their movie date this episode, I keep thinking “(Leo the) Turtle Adventures.”  I shall blame Peanuts for that Leo/turtle comparison picture.

Everyone officially knows Mo Sheng is Mrs. He!  Mo Sheng does a little scheming to get Yi Chen out on a date.

My Sunshine (何以笙箫默): Episode 16 Review and Recap


Peanuts: Park here temporary to satisfy the hungry as well as the curious 😛 Don’t get too excited, very tame only 😛

0I shall not mock Mo Sheng for her clumsiness in the kitchen because that’s something I would do, too.  The iciness in the marriage is melting. 🙂  And ladies, you get to see Wallace eating again.
