Recap: A Slight Smile Is Devastating a.k.a Wei Wei Yi Xiao Heng Qing Cheng Episode 14 & 15

Long post with lots of pics today.

Episode 14 starts back in the dorms Wei Wei and her friends. She ends up chatting online with Xiao Nai’s friends about Yu Gong’s idiom skills and gives them their divine-level pets. They tease her about Xiao Nai’s trip as in the novel. Their chat is disrupted by Er Xi finding the post about Aixiang Nai Er on Wei Wei’s appearance and relationship with Xiao Nai.

Look at me, look at me!

Look at me, look at me!

A dramatic entrance by Meng Yi Ran into the ballroom which attracts everyone’s attention. Xiao Nai, Manager Wang, and Feng Teng quickly turn their attention back and Fengteng invites Xiao Nai to “drink tea”  the next morning in his office. The voice actor for Feng Teng really doesn’t match discount-Feng Teng’s appearance … …

The woman in red is not Shan Shan, but Feng Teng's assistant. Otherwise, I have to wonder where Shan Shan's chubby cheeks went.

Meng Yi Ran keeps Aixiang Nai Er’s advice to keep to herself in mind as she stares at Xiao Nai.

Penetrating stare. Meng Yi Ran: I heard that staring hard at someone helped them get a relationship (Xiao Nai: coughs.)

When Xiao Nai gets another cup of wine, he hears some other males chatting about her and thinking that she is here to “work.” The men want to take her out to “dinner” after the party. Xiao Nai walks towards Meng Yi Ran and remarks loudly that Meng Yi Ran’s uncle, the CEO of Zhen Yi, was looking for her.

He talked to me! (I'm serious, that is what is in the drama.)

He talked to me! (I’m serious, that is what is in the drama.)

Then he walks away. Meng Yi Ran is elated because what Aixiang Nai Er said about Xiao Nai seeking her out was proven true if she stayed aloof.

Er Xi finds that Aixiang Nai Er’s blog was hacked. The girls wonder who do it and it cuts to Xiao Nai’s dorm. Yu Gong mentions that Wei Wei’s scholarship is even higher than what he has as they wait hand-and-foot on Mo Zha Ta who is apparently responsible for the hack.

Mo Zha Ta: Laosan owes me a dinner for this.

The next day, the events occur as in the novel with Er Xi asking Xiao Nai to take them to dinner. When Wei Wei calls Xiao Nai, he is in a car with someone else looking at a contract about the copyright of the game. The girls buy the red dress online for Wei Wei rather than going down to the shop.

I actually liked the red dress in the shop better than this one.

Aixiang Nai Er and Meng Yi Ran are pictured at the French restaurant. Meng Yi Ran gives Aixiang Nai Er a bottle of Chanel Number 5.

Wei Wei discovers Meng Yi Ran in the restaurant and has the same conversation with her friends. Aixiang Nai Er tells Meng Yi Ran to take thing slowly. She states that because Xiao Nai has never had a relationship before, he needs to know what he likes and it is not always the best to be the first relationship. She adds that people don’t get married to their first romantic partners (Professor Xiao and Mrs. Xiao … …) Na Na sends Meng Yi Ran a text message about Aixiang Nai Er’s blog post which Meng Yi Ran did not know. Meng Yi Ran is shown to be angry and the scene cuts away.

To be used for access to your cousin or for popularity and expensive products ... ... that is the question.

At the fish restaurant, Wei Wei stops Er Xi from ordering so much and takes her for a conversation outside where she states her desire for Xiao Nai to not discover her huge appetite. However, when they go back into the room, Xiao Ling and Si Si have already ordered and expose how much Wei Wei has eaten in the past.

Xiao Nai reassures Wei Wei by telling her he believes in her ability (to eat eight kilos of fish and five kilos of shrimp with her friends.)

Xiao Nai actually makes a joke ... ...

The same conversation occurs in the car and the hug as well.

The episode ends with the friends sighing over how Xiao Nai responded to a question about what he thought about the post (Having is better than not having.)

Episode 15

The episode beings with Er Xi late to movie class again. Cao Guang refuses to move for her to get to her spot and they argue. Er Xi provokes him by mentioning how he was unable to get Wei Wei and the stir attracts the attention of the professor who punishes them by getting the two of them to make the video record for this year’s graduation ceremony.

When doing the recording, the two split up the tasks and Cao Guang wants Er Xi to be in one of the shots. When he sees Er Xi in frame he is struck but quickly recovers.

The situation worsens when Er Xi sees Wei Wei and Xiao Nai come out of the library having borrowed books for Wei Wei to study during school vacation. Er Xi insists on recording an interview with the two of them but Cao Guang is extremely reluctant. After one questions, Cao Guang shuts the camera and storms away. Er Xi is left to chase after him.

Cao Guang tries to delete the footage of Wei Wei and Xiao Nai when he and Er Xi go to dinner. Er Xi tries to stop him so the two fight and the camera drops into the soup. Er Xi takes it and tries to turn it on which fries the camera.

Mo Zha Ta hawks his blankets and other possessions on the street by telling people he’s never failed since he started using the blankets.

Wei Wei easily realizes it is Mo Zha Ta. When Xiao Nai mentions going to dinner, Mo Zha Ta tells them to change the location and brings them back to the place where mystery-server is working.

Mo Zha Ta tells his friends to come back and eat here. He also tells KO he’ll tell people to come eat but KO refuses by saying he’s not the owner and it is very tiring. He also tells Mo Zha Ta it would be good if he was the only one that came and Mo Zha Ta agrees to keep it a secret.

KO: How can I make a move when you bring so many people over?

After dinner, they go to a snooker place where Xiao Nai teaches Wei Wei how to play because he was tired of Xiao Nai winning. After a few shots, Xiao Nai tells Wei Wei it is late so they go back to campus while the others keep playing after mention he wants to put a snooker table in his home.

Xiao Nai obviously has his future planned out, starting with essential furniture for his home.

Wei Wei ends up giving Xiao Nai the brooch after the conversation at night with Xiao Nai confessing that this is his first relationship, he doesn’t know what he is supposed to do but will do what other people have done.

Virtual gifts trump real-life ones.

Virtual gifts trump real-life ones. It is the thought that counts.

Xiao Nai and his friends play cards into the night and Yu Gong is forced to write a letter of his debts that he owe to Yu Gong. They realize that they don’t have summer vacation and this is goodbye to their university, going out onto the deck and shouting.

All of them have been drinking this night. Rio seems to be the company sponsoring their alcohol.

The next morning, Xiao Nai drives Wei Wei to the train station.

Cold face Xiao Nai

Wei Wei finds him even more standoffish but he bought cold medicine for her. When she gives him the cactus, she explains as in the novel that she didn’t know him when she bought the ticket.

Peace offering ... ... Xiao Nai: You think you can placate me with a cactus?! No, I will keep my stiff face.

The episode ends at the train station with Xiao Nai telling Wei Wei he’s going to buy a platform ticket. When Wei Wei tries to hurry after him and stop him, Xiao Nai responds by saying “Furen, your luggage is heavy, please sit for a moment.”

Slight smiley face.

The last part almost made up for the ten minutes I had to watch about Er Xi and Cao Guang. I know that the actor playing Er Xi has second billing but this is a lot of time devoted to her. I’m not sure that there is a need to set off Wei Wei and Xiao Nai’s “perfect” relationship by contrasting it against Er Xi’s relationship. At the least, they could have found a different character. Is there a need to make it seem Er Xi is picking Wei Wei’s leftovers? (to borrow what Gu Man said about Nai He and Zhen Shui Wu Xiang.)

Xiao Nai probably stepped over the line when he sent the video to Wei Wei and managed to get something into her computer that told him what she was doing.(Or maybe that the video is on a server and he can see it whenever she access it? But no excuses, he was invading her privacy) Other than that, his actions are more on the side of a suitor which is separated by a thin line from being a stalker. Cao Guang, on the other hand, is definitely in the territory of a stalker. The main difference between them is that Cao Guang is pursuing Wei Wei even though she has stated her disinterest. He disregards what she thinks and then blames her for not accepting him and getting in a relationship with someone else. Both of them tried to be at places she was at (Xiao Nai at history class, Cao Guang in the hallways) but only Cao Guang tried to get Wei Wei to talk her him even though she did not want to. He also carries his terrible attitude over to Er Xi who is innocent in this episode.

  1. ”Xiao Nai probably stepped over the line when he sent the video to Wei Wei and managed to get something into her computer that told him what she was doing.(Or maybe that the video is on a server and he can see it whenever she access it? But no excuses, he was invading her privacy)”

  2. Lol, Xiao Nai and KO are ultimate hackers. I still can’t believe Xiao Nai hacked her computer but then even the boys supported that endeavor when he was in the hospital.. as a joke, but still. I hope Wei Wei comes back by episode 16.
    I had to scan over CG and EX’s scenes as well. CG is such a coward, thinks that Wei Wei is his wife in the game and just goes along with it in reality without saying anything and trying to punish her or make her feel bad with his little double puns.
    The previews for 16 and 17 are killing me. We see more of KO and his hacking from the previews in 17. I wonder how Xiao Nai will bring KO to the company, lol, probably have Hao Mei as bait. It’s actually funny but KO is already reeling in Hao Mei with his excellent cooking. LOL, Hao Mei keeps on coming back.

      • I think the preview for 16 just has Xiao Nai smiling more when he thinks that he can keep Wei Wei for another day. That was cute and different from his stone face during the trip taking her to the station. The ep 17 preview when I was live streaming started a bit before the one on youku. You see that Hao Mei notices that he’s been hacked and not feeling great about it. Xiao Nai and the guys tries to find out who it is and KO responds and that’s where it ended. I like the preview on youku because you see Hao Mei going to eat at the place where KO cooks because he’s feeling down about being hacked. LOL, not knowing that he’s walking straight towards his hacker. Poor Hao Mei.

      • Such a big smile … … and then back to stone face. I have to admire Yang Yang for being able to keep up a stony face because I see him joking around a lot in the blooper reels and a stony face doesn’t seem to be his natural state.

        I think with Mo Zha Ta’s hair gelled back, he looks a lot younger and baby-faced. Maybe KO was worried where Mo Zha Ta was going after graduation and if he needed to move to not get abandoned again.

    • The preview didn’t tell me what KO was hacking for … … Mo Zha Ta can be the sacrificial offering for an alliance of the two hackers. 🙂

      I like how KO give MO Zha Ta larger portions … … to fatten him up to eat.

  3. Your captions of Xiao Nai’s reaction to his girlfriend leaving is hillarious. LOL. they always makes me laugh.

    As for your comment on Xiao Nai’s stepping over the line, I agree with you although I’m pretty sure that one is on the server. But then again, it was uploaded through Wei Wei’s account, so still. As for Cao Guang, let’s just say he needs a groveling before I can like him again.

    Cactus mean:
    -> Lust and sexual attraction between two people
    -> The power and loneliness of the desert
    -> Enduring all things, no matter how painful or difficult
    -> Protection from danger and threats

  5. Thanks for the recap. I just managed to complete 75% of ep 14 and scan through ep 15.. but i just love the breakfast scene… XN is really into this relationship as he even had breakfast with WW when his flight is at 9am. Wonder how early was the breakfast lol… when i was waiting for the episodes to be made public on YT, I saw the bts… YY is quite a joker..
    lol XN can blame his friends for leading WW astray but WW was quick to add that he was the bad influence.
    I don’t think that they take hacking into someone’s computer seriously… is this common among comp science faculty?

    • Not too sure about how lightly they take it in Korea, but in my previous university, we had a lot of “white hat” hackers (and a couple “black hats”). Our Network Security professors either worked or had retired from the FBI and the CIA and our wifi activity was constantly monitored for illegal activity because of the high attendance of hackers inside the university. So if anyone wanted to illegally download music or software, they would have to use a different IP address and source of internet. Since the FBI and CIA tended to scout that school for either potential interns or future threats, there was a lot of incentive to be on good behavior.

      But hacking into another person’s computer? Remotely accessing their laptop? lol Yeah, that happened. Usually if someone needed to help fixing their computer or for an assignment. Of course, no one in school was stupid enough to antagonize each other for obvious reasons. In addition, the school was relatively small so almost everyone knew each other – or at least, those in their department.
