Alright, it is time to discuss the third episode of Lost Romance. My previous episode review is available with this link 👉🏼 Lost Romance: Drama Review – Episode 2
(warning – spoilers ahead)
The filming technique and scene transitions got slightly better in this episode. We also got more interactions between Zheng Xiao En and He Tian Xing’s characters in the novel’s world, which in turn led to some noticeable development in their relationship. I also enjoyed Zheng Xiao En’s rescue scene because it allowed Vivian Sung to showcase actual, emotionally driven acting. That short moment proved that she was capable of more than the animated acting style. Furthermore, it gave me hope for the future of this drama. Hence why I’m excited to get more interactions from our leads as the story progresses.
Another good thing about this episode is that we finally got some insight into Zheng Xiao En’s fondness for He Tian Xing. He was someone who gave her strength and comfort whenever she felt down or frustrated. His words encouraged her to continue working hard, and that’s how her “obsession” over him began. The quote that He Tian Xing gave was beautiful – “In a storm, you have to be like an adult. In beautiful weather, you have to be like a child.”
Now in my previous review, I mentioned that the supposed novel’s female lead is way too cringy for me, and I still stand by that. However, I now find Chuchu’s antics hilarious because how can one human being trip at every given opportunity. Honestly, Chuchu is a sweet girl, but she needs to work on her stamina and also learn some essential body balance. No wonder Zheng Xiao En stays paranoid about keeping her away from danger.😂😂😂
Moving on to our villain, He Mingli. I finally see who she got her twisted personality from. The mother is a more reserved version of her. The way she talking to He Mingli’s father in the hospital was quite creepy to me. Also, I still stand by my statement that He Mingli’s methods will become her downfall. Just because you feel threatened, you want to get rid of all He Tian Xing’s potential supporters? I personally think that removing too many people at once will cause her to lose very essential supporters for her family’s business in the long run.
Overall, since the story has started moving somewhere, I am going to continue watching. If you are interested in this drama, all English subbed episodes will be uploaded regularly on this site: Lost Romance on Viki.
