Episode 15 Recap
Lu Fei Yu comes to Song Bai with a group from his hall, led by his master, Ye Chong. The visit reveals Lu Fei Yu as a descendant of one of the Song Bai Hall masters and his hall is a division of the original Song Bai known as Xin Song Bai. The purpose for their visit to Song Bai is to reclaim it.
The story behind this is that Lu Fei Yu’s side of Song Bai was driven out of the original Song Bai 80 years ago by a sneaky attack at a Three Person competition from those now classified as the An Yang side. A will from Xin Song Bai’s founder—a hall master from the original Song Bai permits Xin Song Bai to reclaim Song Bai if they come looking to do so. Ye Chong therefore demands the return of not only the land and building that Song Bai operates in, but also Song Bai the name itself and not allowing those in Song Bai to use the Song Bai name.
The will Xin Song Bai claims to be legit is verified by Song Bai’s most respected member, Hu Yi Feng. He’d visited their hall master residing overseas and confirmed it to be real. Xin Song Bai allows Song Bai three days to move out. After that, Song Bai cannot operate.
Song Bai tries to come up with a way to stop the takeover from happening, but they struggle to find a way to help themselves out of the situation.
Fang Ting Hao learns about Song Bai’s situation through his assistant. With a habit of going to help Qi Bai Cao, he gets up on his feet immediately, but stops himself after a few steps. The strained friendship that has taken place between him and Qi Bai Cao after his confession is the reason behind the halt. Fang Ting Hao doesn’t go to Song Bai or to Qi Bai Cao. However, Fang Ting Hao seems to have sent his assistant to Song Bai and Fang Ting Hao offers his ability to help them with the situation if Qi Bai Cao goes to him. Qi Bai Cao goes with Fan Xiao Ying towing her along. She gets as far as the company’s entrance before she asks Fan Xiao Ying to not go ask for Fang Ting Hao’s help. She doesn’t want to always go to him for help and giving nothing in return but sadness and heartbreak.
They turn around—to Fang Ting Hao’s sadness. Watching Qi Bai Cao leave from his office window, he expresses that unlike other things, he isn’t able to just let go when it comes to feelings.
Qu Guang Ya leaves Song Bai. She pursues an opportunity to be an idol singer.
Qu Guang Ya didn’t really feature much in the series. We thought she’d have a bit more of a role in the relationship part of the story where, because she likes Fang Ting Hao who likes Qi Bai Cao, she’d become a bad friend of some kind to Qi Bai Cao; but, Qu Guang Ya was just a person keeping Fang Ting Hao up to date on the situation with Qi Bai Cao and her chances of competing in competitions.
Chang An shows more of how much he thinks of Qi Bai Cao when he considers her dream as extremely important and spends his spare time making a gift for her.
Qi Bai Cao comes to Chang An’s place to bring him a canteen of food. She finds him sitting on the floor with his laptop and papers scattered everywhere. He’s working out a plan to get Qi Bai Cao to the City Youth Competition after Qi Bai Cao didn’t place first in the competitions in Tokyo and not being able to participate in the competition in London because her application mysteriously didn’t get received. Qi Bai Cao tells Chang An to not get too tired. His health is more important than her competitions. Chang An disagrees immediately: her competitions are of course more important because it’s her dream.
A moment of close proximity come for Chang An and Qi Bai Cao. Chang An saves Qi Bai Cao from knocking into a punching bag above her head with a kick at the punching bag to get it out of Qi Bai Cao’s way as she stands up. But that brings more danger to Qi Bai Cao when the punching bag Chang An kicked comes swinging back towards her at speed. It has Chang An quickly pull Qi Bai Cao towards him, spin around and kick the punching bag away from them. But this makes the two unsteady and this brings Chang An to be on top of Qi Bai Cao. :oP :oP.
It’s a time-stands-still moment for the two as Chang An stares at Qi Bai Cao and Qi Bai Cao stares at Chang An. It takes Qi Bai Cao to snap back to reality and giving a push at Chang An’s arm before Chang An snaps out of his trance and lets Qi Bai Cao up from underneath him.
Chang An looks a bit awkward for a bit. However, he bounces back very quickly. He shouts out, “Don’t forget about tomorrow!” to an embarrassed Qi Bai Cao running away from him and the embarrassing moment that just happened between him and her.
Prior to Chang An and Qi Bai Cao getting into a compromising position, Chang An had asked Qi Bai Cao whether she had free time tomorrow whilst they cleaned the hall floor. Qi Bai Cao thinks it’s to train, but Chang An is wanting to give the carving he’s been working on to her.
There are four people carvings. Hmm… we wonder what the gift is. Looks interesting!
Chang An may miss this appointment with Qi Bai Cao, though. Qi Bai Cao goes looking for Chang An at his place, but she doesn’t find him home. He’s visiting a former female Feng Yun disciple at the stable after she left a curious gold ring with a dragon symbol in his place.
This is one part of the story where there’s little development. This female Feng Yun disciple appeared in Episode 1. We’re told Feng Yun wants Chang An to return back to them, but he refused to do so and this saw him being chased down by her men who fought him to try to get him to do so, but failed in the attempt. We’re not quite sure why Feng Yun insists on Chang An returning back to Feng Yun. We’re very curious to know why.
