Meteor Garden 2018: Episode 3 Quick Recap

Meteor Garden Episode 3 Recap
Tensions ran high between the two men by the end of episode two but their big confrontation seems to have fizzled with no proper resolution. Episode three seems to be a chance for Dao Mingsi to redeem himself and even as he tries harder, Lei still holds a special place in Shan Cai's heart.

Meteor Garden Episode 3 Recap
A totally different Dao Mingsi. Dao Mingsi is overwhelmed with guilt upon learning that Shan Cai has fallen sick after the cafeteria incident. He goes to her house to check on her and to apologize in person. The boisterous and aggressive Dao Mingsi changes into a respectful and mild-mannered guy, which wins over the parents. 

Dao Mingsi also becomes uncharacteristically caring and sweet towards Shan Cai. It was so cute when he suddenly reached out to touch her forehead to see if she still had a fever.

First kiss. After last episode's peck on the cheek, we get our first real kiss during the night party in Sanya. The students had prepared a segment wherein participants could kiss anyone in the dark. It doesn't seem like Dao Mingsi nor Shan Cai wanted to kiss the other, or maybe Dao Mingsi did, but someone accidentally bumps into Shan Cai and she falls on top of Dao Mingsi, kissing him! Everyone sees them including Lei.

Lei chooses Jing. When Shan Cai goes to Jing's room to return her clothes, she overhears Lei and Jing's conversation. Jing thinks that Lei has feelings for Shan Cai. To prove a point, Lei pushes Jing onto the bed and says, "You say I care about Shan Cai, but the one I care about is you."

  2. Acting is not that great. Converting the F4 challenge into a card game challenge does not seem to be that scary so maybe the drama was just avoiding offending the censors. Meteor Shower probably did a better a job of modernizing the manga story.

    1. Oh? On ehat planet is "Meteor Shower" ever good?

      Obviously it's not the 2001 series, which wasn't praised initially in China either.

      The show is set in China and airing on a major public broadcast channel, of course they have to abide rules laid by the Chinese state media.


      Things like Daoming Si studying Finance is a smart move to showcase depth to the character and he is the heir to his mother's company (FACT: it's a key subject in the real world to learn, in order to become a CEO).

      The producers and Hunan made that
      knockoff show in 2009 was bad taste and they couldn't get the rights to make the official HYD at the time. Not before Angie Chai came along with the MG reboot for China.

  3. The actor playing the father looks obese. Chubby looking asians are probably already obese and asians need to look skinny to be healthy. For asians, normal bmi is around 18 to 22. Bmi 23 is overweight and 25 is obese for asians. Chinese tend to overconsume refined substances like oil.

  4. Am I the only one who thinks that Shan Cai showed no class in this episode? Why did she laugh out loud while eating? Why did she eavesdrop Lei and Jing? Why the hell did she explain to Lei what happened with her first kiss?
