Heart Signal 2 (Chinese Version): My thoughts on Episode 2

Hello everyone.

I am back with my thoughts on the second episode of Heart Signal 2 (Chinese Version). This is going to be a short post, so let us get right into it.

  • Qi Jun was a bit frustrating in the first few minutes of this episode. I know he meant well, but the tension between him and William was just unbearable to watch. Yes, it was kind of him to help Kai Wen prep dinner, but once William got into the kitchen, he should have just left.
  • Currently, in the Signal house, the cooking period seems to be the only time they get to be alone with their person of interest without interference from other housemates. So to me, him being all up in their space was quite unfair. I know that he was trying to fill up the water jar, but still, the whole situation was awkward to watch.
  • William really caught my attention in this episode. I watched this with a friend and every time he gave those “smart remarks,” we laughed so hard. I can definitely see his effort to connect more with the other housemates, most notably, Kai Wei. He is more relaxed now but still the confident Wiliam from episode one. Good for him ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘.
  • In this episode, we got to know the occupation and age of each housemate, a few were surprising for me, but the majority of them were expected.
  • I really thought that Kai Wen would be a student, and I was not expecting Chen Yi Chen to be the youngest in the house.
  • At this point, no one can tell me that Chen Yi Chen and Zhang Tian are not going to be a couple by the end of the show. I can see stars shooting out of their eyes whenever they see each other. And anyone who stays in between their conversations just seems out of place. They are too cute for words ๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’–
  • So far, I love all the panellists for this season. Yang Chao Yue is definitely my favourite. Her comments are always so real, unfiltered and funny.img_0350
  • Texting Results:img_0340– Chen Yi Chen and Zhang Tian texted each other.

          – Wu Pei texted Chen Yi Chen but did not receive a text from anyone.

          – William and Zhan Qi Jun both texted Yang Kai Wen, but only William got a text back from her.

  • I felt sad for Wu Pei. I honestly do not want her to feel burdened by the fact that she is the oldest in the house. I do not think that her age is the reason for her not receiving a text. Because from what I have seen so far, she is yet to really connect with anyone in the house. She is a nice and capable lady, so there is nothing to worry about.
  • Also, it is the second night, and Qi Jun has not received a text. Not good, not good at all.
  • Anyways, it looks like we are going to be having a seventh housemate to stir up some drama. I LIKE๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜‚ , but he better not try to sink my ships๐Ÿ˜’.

That is all I have to say about episode two. I am about to watch episode three now, so I might be making a new post very soon. I am really looking forward to the upcoming dates and the mystery man.img_0359

Heart Signal 2 (Chinese Version): My thoughts on Episode 1

Hello, beautiful people.

I know that I have not made a post for the past two weeks, sorry about that๐Ÿ™. I had weddings to attend, family gatherings and also friends to meet up with. Sometimes I wonder if anyone really cares when I go ‘MIA’๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ but oh well.

So I just started watching the second season of Heart Signal (Chinese Version), and I wanted to share my thoughts on what I have seen so far. I plan to continue doing this for each episode I watch.

Now for those who have no idea what Heart Signal is, no worries, I got you. Heart Signal is originally a Korean variety show where six to eight strangers live together in the same house for a month. The house is known as the Signal House. Basically, the primary purpose of the show is to discover if these six to eight individuals can find love and even build a relationship in the Signal House. Their mission is to send an anonymous text to the person they like every night. The show also has panellists with various experiences in dating and love. The people on the panel are placed in a separate studio where they can observe, comment and even attempt to predict the potential lovers in the Signal House.

I am not the biggest fan of reality shows because I know that not everything I get to see in the final cut is the real deal. A lot of editing has been done to make things look a certain way. But yet, I just have a soft spot for romance, so here I am๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š.


So before I begin throwing out my thoughts, here is a formal introduction of the panellist and cast members for this season. There are six individuals on the panel and also six housemates in the Signal House.

(Pardon the picture quality, I just had to stick with screenshots).

My Thoughts on Episode 1:

  • My favourite moment is when Qi Jun tells Yi Chen that he is handsome. Yi Chen’s reaction was so funny and the way Qi Jun said it was what made that moment even more amusing to me. Here is a little clip of that moment.
  • So far, my favourite housemate is Chen Yi Chen.img_3902 This is not just because he is handsome or because of his resemblance to Chen Kun, who happens to be one of my favourite actors. What I actually love about him is that, although he seems shy, he always says the right things at the perfect time. Timing is crucial in this show, and so far, he has that down. Also, I love how attentive he is. I am really rooting for him and Zhang Tian to be a couple at the end.
  • I love how confident William is, but I also feel that he needs to be a little bit more relaxed. Because so far, he comes off as someone who you cannot really connect with and is also very hard to approach. But from the previews, I see some improvement. So all the best to him.
  • Qi Jun is very straightforward, and I admire that. The only problem is that he is not the most attentive person in the room. This was very evident while he was cooking with Wu Pei. There were a lot of signals thrown at him, but Qi Jun was too focused on cooking and missed his chance to form a proper connection with her.
  • It was so awkward when all the guys were in the same room waiting for a text, and then all three ladies decided to text only Yi Chen. That was not fun to watch.
  • Among the girls, Wu Pei seems to be more straightforward. She was very comfortable once she entered the house. She had her eyes on Qi Jun and just went with it, but unfortunately, he could not keep her attention. I love her personality, and I wish I could be like her sometimes.
  • I will say I am more like Zhang Tian, the shy type, but I always find a way to make sure that the person I like stays in contact with me. Zhang Tian is definitely attracted to Yi Chen, and she did all her best to get Yi Chen’s attention. So far, she succeeded in getting a text from him on the first night, but who knows what might happen in the upcoming episodes.
  • Kai Wen has not really made an impression on me so far, but I hope to see more from her as the show progresses.

So that is all I have to say. Keep an eye out for my thoughts on Episode 2. That will be a much shorter post since I have already done all the necessary introductions in this post. Feel free to leave your predictions and thoughts on the housemates so far.
