So what is happening with our couples this week? Are Solo and Gui going to reconcile? What’s going to happen with Kao and Phu? Will there be any change in the Petch, Perth Khim love triangle? Let’s dive in to the episode to see what happens. Make sure you go check out Krishna’s review and see if we find common ground or different opinions about this episode.
We left off in episode 4 with a cliffhanger of a seeming confession from Kay, the newbie on staff at the cafe, to Gui. He hoped that Solo would hear. Of course he heard and his jealous streak had him leaving before Kay backpedaled and stated he wanted to be like Gui, independent and mature.
Solo – Gui
We start off with jealous Solo, who is not happy with how close Kay is to Gui. He asks for milk only to be told by Kay the cafe was closed. He uses his puppy dog eyes pleading with Gui. Gui tells him to come back tomorrow. Solo decides to stake his claim on Gui by saying he would take him home. Solo is stepping up his game, getting bolder in his pursuit of Gui.
Just in case you have forgotten Solo is very rich, here is the car he’s driving Gui home in. I love cars. The kiddo and I watched Top Gear, a British motoring show, for many years. I drooled a bit at this sweet ride.
The next day Solo bumps into Gui at the market while getting supplies for the school camping trip. He asks for Gui’s help to buy things for Kao. He uses his puppy eyes to his advantage, making Gui unable to resist him. Gui is still uncertain whether he will go on the trip with Solo or not, but agrees to help Solo gather supplies.
After this Solo leaves the bag at Gui’s condo for him instead of Kao, in the hopes that Gui will come on the trip with him. Gui doesn’t commit one way or another.
The next day Solo and Kao are talking while waiting for everyone to show up near the buses. Kao can see that Solo is anxious and unsure whether or not Gui will show up. He tries to reassure his friend, but in the end Gui shows up with two of his friends to join the trip. Solo is so relieved and happy until he realizes that Kay is there as well. Kay is excited to see Gui. He’s happy that they have to travel to the camp with their faculty since Kay is the same major as Gui. Meanwhile Solo is not happy at all.
We come to an annoying character in my mind. Kay is beyond pushy. He’s manipulative and constantly trying to get as close to Gui as possible. Gui is kind in the beginning but by the end of episode he’s had enough of Kay. He has to firmly reject Kay, saying he can only be Kay’s senior and nothing more. I am glad.
There is resolution, a public love song, a confession and a kiss from our lovely couple. It’s such progress for them. I’m truly happy that they are together. Now will come the challenges they must face, whether it’s Linda, Solo’s dad or other’s, it’s up to our couple to navigate these obstacles, so hang in there people, it might be a bumpy ride.
Petch – Khim – Perth
It’s shaping up to be not so much a love triangle as a bunch of one sided loves. We have Dr. Petch who seems to have fallen in love with Khim. We have Khim who isn’t in love with anyone that we know of. Then we have Dr. Perth who clearly has feelings for Dr. Petch.
So Khem is now working at the cafe, and Dr. Petch is trying to run interference between the two siblings who are arguing about money. He has placed himself in the middle of their family situation because he cares about both of them. Khem, a typical teen, is spending money on frivolous things like new shoes, whereas Khim is minding her money to buy food, make rent and afford her therapy. This shows the differences in behavior of an adult versus a teenager. So Khem storms off, saying he won’t be a burden to her financially, so he’d find somewhere else to stay. Khim, due to the stress, collapses and is rushed to the hospital.
She wakes up to find that no one can contact her brother. He’s stormed off in a huff and she’s missing him. She regrets her words. Dr. Petch tries to comfort her, but fails to distract her from the worry over Khem.
We see how things just got sticky for our triangle which may turn out to be a square with someone else in the mix. 😁 Wonder how things will all shake out now?
Phu – Kao
We see that before the trip, Kao was camped out in the lobby of Phuri’s building, waiting on him to come home. He wanted to ask if Phu would go with them on the camping trip. Phu answers that he’s busy and abruptly leaves Kao standing there wondering if he was still mad. Kao was antagonistic to the peers in Phu’s class who were talking shit about Phu. But it appears Phu didn’t like Kao’s actions.
Not a lot of development or screen time for this couple this week. This week was about Solo and Gui, and them finding their way to each other. Kao was Solo’s wingman who ran interference with Kay so Solo could spend more time with Gui.
At the camp, there is someone who heard Kao singing and wanted to ask him out, but gets dismissed altogether by Kao until he learns the guy is in the same faculty as Phu. He eagerly asked questions about Phuri and makes notes in his phone to ask him later about the rumors.
I hope we get more of this couple next week. I somehow think his notes on his phone will backfire on him, but I’m happy he added the word unbelievable. I want Phu to open up more to Kao. We shall see how much they include from Nitrogen into this story or how much they save for a season 2. Fingers crossed they speed up their relationship a bit, because I really enjoy their chemistry together.
So that’s it for our episode this week. What do you think? Did you like it? Tell me your thoughts on all the couples. And let me know what you are looking forward to the most. Also make sure to check out Krishna’s review and see if our thoughts this week are similar or do the diverge in places.
See you next episode peeps. 🤗😘💕 – Jen
