It’s the beginning of Li Yan Shu entering into Gu Cheng Ze’s world and Li Yan Shu ruffling up Gu Cheng Ze! Li Yan Shu is quite a handful for Gu Cheng Ze!
The Fox’s Summer – Episode 4 Recap
Gu Cheng Ze brings Li Yan Shu home after he decides he can’t leave her vulnerable out on the street. The morning after, while Gu Cheng Ze goes to work looking a little odd to his employees with wearing sunglasses inside to cover the cut he has above his eyebrow from the previous night’s troubles, Li Yan Shu wakes up wondering where she is and finds she’s not in the clothes she wore last night.
She explores Gu Cheng Ze’s place before we see what trouble Gu Cheng Ze had gone through the previous night when Li Yan Shu needs to use the bathroom and she spots her clothes in the bin outside the room to the toilet. Gu Cheng Ze washed Li Yan Shu. He wore a disposable mask over his eyes to make sure his eyes were covered. A long bath brush is how Gu Cheng Ze felt his way around. He struggled with the task.
Li Yan Shu seemed somewhat aware of what Gu Cheng Ze did the previous night when she screams out his name, not impressed with him at all.
Li Yan Shu explores a bit more of Gu Cheng Ze’s place after relieving herself. It’s a bit of get-to-know Gu Cheng Ze. She finds the décor of his room unsurprising. It’s black and white just like the rest of his place. He has a glass case full of watches which Li Yan Shu finds fascinating. Li Yan Shu finds him odd to have many articles of the same clothing. She comes to find the machine measuring his body condition in his wardrobe room. She doesn’t know what it is and plays with it like a dance arcade machine.
Changed out of the clothes Gu Cheng Ze put her in and into other clothes of his—white shirt, cargo shorts and dress shoes—Li Yan Shu goes to Sheng Hong looking for Gu Cheng Ze.
Getting pass reception takes a bit of effort when the receptionists doesn’t agree to allowing Li Yan Shu to have a meeting with their CEO without an appointment. They ask Li Yan Shu to give a call to their CEO herself when Li Yan Shu attempts to have them agree to a meeting with their CEO with saying their CEO knew her.
Li Yan Shu persist on when the taxi she took to get to Sheng Hong is waiting for her to return to pay for her taxi fare. She doesn’t have money and urgently needs to see Gu Cheng Ze so he can help pay it for her. Li Yan Shu uses a method that stumps the receptionists in how to proceed and give a call asking for an appointment.
Li Yan Shu:
“Help a customer make an announcement. You can do that, right?”
“Say I am the woman Gu Cheng Ze brought home from a bar. He ripped my clothes and didn’t compensate me for it. You give him three minutes to see me at the reception desk.”
The message gets through to Gu Cheng Ze’s assistant then to Gu Cheng Ze who at first didn’t know the person his assistant spoke about wanting to see him when she referred to this person as Miss Li. When she says the person who is wanting to see him is a girl he brought home from a bar, he immediately goes down to meet Li Yan Shu. He pulls Li Yan Shu by her wrist and heads outside.
Gu Cheng Ze and Li Yan Shu provides Gu Cheng Ze’s employees a spectacle of Li Yan Shu appearing to be a woman Gu Cheng Ze is close with. They’re amazed when they see Gu Cheng Ze pay the taxi driver for Li Yan Shu’s taxi fare. What they don’t see from being inside and peering through the window and from a distance is that Gu Cheng Ze was reluctant to pay for the taxi fare and was even mistaken to be Li Yan Shu’s husband by the taxi driver. Gu Cheng Ze paid for Li Yan Shu’s taxi fare from the pressure coming from both Li Yan Shu and the taxi driver when the taxi driver indicated he urgently needed to be elsewhere.
Gu Cheng Ze regrets the things he had done yesterday with the trouble that Li Yan Shu was brining to him now. Li Yan Shu, on the other hand, feels the both of them have developed a sort of closeness. They have gone through a lot together last night. But Gu Cheng Ze sees things differently. He gets in Li Yan Shu’s personal space and grabs her by her clothes (or more like his clothes).
Gu Cheng Ze:
“Let me tell you: these words, ‘you and me’ will never come about again. I shouldn’t have bothered about you yesterday. You, a woman who’s full of lies, pesters endlessly, and lacks in both manners and is poorly brought up, is simply a source of pollution who just simply hangs about the roadside running its course.”
Li Yan Shu doesn’t appreciate Gu Cheng Ze grasping onto her so forcefully. She asks him to release the grasp he has on her. Gu Cheng Ze is defiant. He refuses to. His defiance gains him a kiss on his cheek. It stuns him and immobilises him. Gu Cheng Ze remains in the position for some moments before he lets go of Li Yan Shu and rubs his head—annoyed, but not able to do anything about the kiss that already went on him.
Li Yan Shu:
“What? Is your face rotting from being kissed by this source of pollution? You need to have plastic surgery now.”
A moment more, Li Yan Shu is given the spectacle of Gu Cheng Ze’s nose running with blood. The cloth Gu Cheng Ze had out for wiping the area Li Yan Shu kissed is used to cover the nose that is bleeding. He turns away from Li Yan Shu’s view. While Li Yan Shu is shocked by the sight, Gu Cheng Ze wonders why his reaction was so strong every time he meets with Li Yan Shu’s lies.
Gu Cheng Ze moves his meeting with Li Yan Shu to his office. Their conversation moves onto the topic of Gu Cheng Ze’s job offer. Li Yan Shu lets Gu Cheng Ze know she wishes to take up on the job offer he gave at the bar. However, Gu Cheng Ze seems momentarily unsure about hiring Li Yan Shu after the trouble she’s brought him. We hear him convince himself to take on Li Yan Shu when he reasons that hiring Li Yan Shu will help manage Gu Jin Yun.
Gu Cheng Ze gives Li Yan Shu the position of Design Assistant. Li Yan Shu doesn’t find the position to her liking. She wishes for a position with more authority. She asks for the design department for New Face. Gu Cheng Ze isn’t willing. New Face is much too important to simply hand over to Li Yan Shu to manage. With this, Li Yan Shu heads for the door. Gu Cheng Ze stops Li Yan Shu from leaving.
Gu Cheng Ze:
“CEO’s Special Assistant. How about this position?”
“I can’t directly give New Face to you. However, you can use your title as CEO’s Special Assistant to manage the matters of New Face. After six months, I will evaluate you. If you pass, I will appoint you at that time.”
Li Yan Shu accepts.
Gu Cheng Ze is subjected once more to Li Yan Shu’s lies when she had asked Gu Cheng Ze to lend her some money and they debated on who owed who more money. The debate saw Gu Cheng Ze winning Li Yan Shu’s argument of owing her for her clothes and for what he did with her last night. Gu Cheng Ze falls unconscious when Li Yan Shu threatened him with telling everyone he didn’t pay her for sleeping with him last night. He comes back around just before Li Yan Shu provides him mouth-to-mouth resuscitation. In the end, Gu Cheng Ze gives Li Yan Shu some money. He also takes her to a clothes store to provide her a change of clothes.
Things to Take Away From Episode 4
Gu Cheng Ze brings Li Yan Shu to his home
Gu Cheng Ze:
“Why did I carry her home? Have I gone crazy?”
Gu Cheng Ze washes Li Yan Shu after bringing her home
We’re assuming Gu Cheng Ze washing Li Yan Shu is Gu Cheng Ze’s obsession for cleanliness. This scene was rather funny. We’re looking at the mask Gu Cheng Ze’s wearing. There are four words. We can’t see the first two words with it smudged, but we’re assuming it says something like ‘shouldn’t sneak a peek!’ or ‘don’t sneak a peek!’.
Zhu Dan mocks Li Yan Shu’s fashion sense and points it to the consequence of plagiarising
“Looking at how you’re dressed, it can’t be that no store is willing to sell you their clothes, is it? The consequence of plagiarising is very severe.”
Li Yan Shu:
“You steal someone else’s things and you accuse that person. You say it with such conviction and with such just words. The key point is that you even believe it when you say it. Shameless.”
Gu Cheng Ze has a nosebleed from Li Yan Shu’s kiss
Gu Cheng Ze:
“Why is it that every time I come across this woman’s lies the reaction is so strong?”
Li Yan Shu makes Gu Cheng Ze unconscious
Li Yan Shu:
“If you don’t lend me money, I will go out there now and tell your employees that you slept with me last night and didn’t pay me for it.”
This huge lie made Gu Cheng Ze perspire and required him to go take medication! It’s the biggest reaction yet to Li Yan Shu’s lies! Poor Gu Cheng Ze! More to come for him to handle since Li Yan Shu is coming in! :oD :oD.
