Fabulous Boys [原來是美男] Episode 11 Recap

This episode should be nicknamed “Confession Confetti”, because dang those confessions are flying everywhere, left and right.

You can watch Fabulous Boys on Dramafever here!

Recap:

12

Moments after the kiss, Tai Qing runs off in shock, leaving Mei Nan stunned. She slowly sits down, wondering if he really did kiss her and what it meant. She revisits the kiss in her memory, but then recalls that Tai Qing also kissed Xin Ning…and he doesn’t like her at all. She decides to get up and talk to Tai Qing about it (yay! proactive)…only to walk in on Xin Ning and Tai Qing talking about her.

Xin Ning, of course, realizes that Mei Nan is watching them, and purposefully starts asking what Mei Nan means to Tai Qing. Tai Qing doesn’t know Mei Nan is watching, and as such tries to play off his relationship with Mei Nan as just friendliness. Xin Ning being the jerk she is, twists his  words into “Mei Nan means nothing to you, right?”.

A heartbroken Mei Nan runs sobbing to the practice rooms, and doesn’t pick up when Xin Yu calls her cellphone. Loverboy finally finds her after checking all the practice rooms, and resignedly asks if she’s crying because of Tai Qing again. He then asks her what about himself – she stood him up (again) to meet the girl, and he isn’t feeling too great either. Mei Nan apologizes over and over (she said sorry close to 10 times before I lost count), and Xin Yu sighs before picking up the guitar next to him to sing a song about fools in love.

Now that she’s calmed down, Mei Nan vows to plays off the kiss so that Tai Qing doesn’t think that she thinks much of it. She decides to send him a message saying “Tai Qing, the kiss didn’t have any meaning”…only she zones out while typing it and actually wrote: “Tai Qing, the kiss had so much meaning”. Hahahaha. Panicking, Mei Nan runs to Tai Qing’s room to try and intercept the message. Unfortunately for her, his phone is locked, and she can’t guess the password in time before he walks out of the restroom. Mei Nan jumps and tries to put the phone back subtly, but ends up banging her leg against his table.

Tai Qing sits her down in the living room so that he can bandage her leg, and teases her about the text (he’d seen it right away). Tai Qing looks so gleeful, until Mei Nan confesses what she’d wanted to say. He gets huffy, asking her if the kiss was bad (she shakes her head), then grumpily paraphrases that she just wants to kiss to be wiped from their record…right?

Mei Nan nods, but inwardly thinks to herself that no matter what happens in the future, the memory of the kiss is one she will hold dear to her heart. She gets up slowly and limps towards the stairs, until Tai Qing swoops in and lifts her bridal style. He tells her to take care of her body while staring lovingly into her eyes before slowly climbing the stairs. Just confess already!

1314

A.N. Jell and Xin Ning have a photo shoot together, and the boys all ignore Xin Ning in favour of Mei Nan. She pouts bitterly while talking to the coordi, until the coordi lets slip that Mei Nan likes Xin Yu – it’s a pity she can’t dress up as a girl in front of him. Xin Ning gets a gleam in her eye (uhoh), and whispers something to the coordi.

Da Pai is at the shoot as well, taking photos and generally snooping around about the “mystery girl” who was at A.N. Jell’s promotional events. Jack denies any knowledge, but requests that Da Pai write some good news about Mei Nan.

1516

Transformation scene! The coordi pulls Mei Nan away once the photo shoot takes a break, and gives her a makeover to make her look more girly! She also provides her with a star headband (cough symbolism) and a sparkly white dress, and tells Mei Nan to enjoy the moment while the break lasts. She also snaps a polaroid for Mei Nan to keep as a souvenir, to look at if she ever gets tired of dressing like a boy. Why do I feel like that polaroid is going to end up in someone else’s possession?

1718

While Mei Nan is twirling around in her dress, she notices Xin Yu in the mirror. She whirls around to see him ogling her, and he explains that the coordi told him to come to the atrium to look at something – it must have been her. Mei Nan gets embarrassed and turns away, but Xin Yu tells her that the clothes really suit her, and she looks really pretty like this.

Xin Ning has been dragging Tai Qing towards the atrium as well, and they walk in just as Xin Yu compliments Mei Nan. Xin Ning jumps in to ask Mei Nan is she specifically dressed this way for Xin Yu, causing Mei Nan to look shocked and Tai Qing to storm off angrily.

1920

Xin Ning leaves now that her evil work is done, and Xin Yu is left comforting a crying Mei Nan. He tells her that it’s obvious she has feelings for Tai Qing, and asks if she wants Tai Qing to know. Mei Nan shakes her head – she wants to keep them hidden, away in the dark. He leaves after telling her not to cry – only to be spotted by Da Pai. Da Pai also sees Xin Ning walk into the building (to torment Mei Nan some more), and wonders why Xin Ning would be walking into a building that Xin Yu was just in.

Xin Ning is indeed back to torment Mei Nan, and she asks if Mei Nan believes dressing like this makes her look pretty. Xin Ning also hisses that she won’t ever let Mei Nan get Tai Qing.

2122

Her evil rant is stopped as Da Pai enters the atrium – he gleefully makes his way over to the two girls, trying to figure out the identity of the second. Xin Ning whispers to Mei Nan that they’re all done for if he finds out, and tells her to run while she distracts Da Pai. Xin Ning pretends to clumsily hit Da Pai on the head and bump into his camera – stalling him to see if he’s alright. To bad all their work is for naught, because Mei Nan dropped her polaroid on the ground as she ran, leaving Da Pai to pick it up.

Back at the shoot, Tai Qing sits beside Mark as he goes through the photos. Mark accidentally knocks Mei Nan’s back off the table, and Tai Qing notices the star pin he bought her lying beside a box. Mark tells him that the box is Mei Nan’s treasure box, and she carries it with her everywhere. As Tai Qing ponders that new piece of information, Mark exasperatedly wonders how long Mei Nan is going to make “that face”. Mei Nan was caught on camera making her pig nosed face, and Mark explains to Tai Qing that he taught it to Mei Nan so that when she’s in front of the person she likes and feels overwhelmed by her feelings, she can press her “nose pressure point” to relieve it. Ha – you can literally see the gears turning in Tai Qing’s head as he processes the information.

27282930

Mei Nan’s still crying as she stands alone, when all of a sudden a car drives up and shines brightly in her face. It’s Tai Qing, and he tells her that he can finally see her now, but she can’t see him. This is what it must have been – where he couldn’t see her crying when she was in the shadows…how many times was she crying because of him?

He gets in close, and tells her that he accepts her feelings. He doesn’t mind them at all – after all he receives the love from thousands of fans as well. Mei Nan jumps on the word “fan”, and thanks him for accepting her as his fan. Tai Qing doesn’t like the word (you goof you should have confessed!), but works with it and tells her that since she’s special, she’s going to be a VV VIP. With that, he grabs her into a hug, and twirls her around as part of her VV VIP treatment. He then taps her nose into a pig nose and laughs. kflkafdljkdfjlklj CONFESS DARN IT.

Aunt is meeting with Mu Hua Lan, and she asks if Mu Hua Lan ever had children…could she be the mother of the twins? Mu Hua Lan replies that she didn’t give birth to the twins, but she’s the reason their mother died, so she feels responsible towards them.

32333435

Tai Qing takes Mei Nan on a romantic date – and Mei Nan asks sheepishly if all the fans receive such romantic one on one time. HA. He tells her to just enjoy it and eat while making moon eyes at her, before making her feed him dessert and asking her to dance. At one point Mei Nan can’t dance properly because of her heels, so Tai Qing takes them off for her and tells her to stand on his boots. D’AW.

3637

Mark shows Da Pai proof that the twins are in fact twins, and Da Pai asks if it’s true then that Mei Nu is Xin Yu’s girlfriend. Mark has no choice but to confirm it, and Da Pai asks to interview the two right away.

3839

Xin Yu calls Mei Nan during the dinner date, and picks her up from Tai Qing. He doesn’t fail to miss the way they look at each other, but tells Tai Qing that from this point on – Mei Nan is his girlfriend. They conduct the interview easily, Xin Yu fields all the questions because Mei Nan/Nu is just a civilian who isn’t used to reporters/stardom.

4243

It looks like Mei Nan took the term “fan” literally, as she signs up as “Pig Rabbit” on A.N. Jell’s fan cafe. She notes that the number of members has dropped, and posts a little introduction asking the other members to take care of her. Tai Qing is also on the fancafe looking at member statistics, and laughs to see her username.

44454647 

Aunt takes Mei Nan to meet with Mu Hua Lan, and they talk a little about the song that Tai Qing is re-arranging. Mu Hua Lan remarks that she always had the hardest time telling the two twins apart, but freezes as she sees Mei Nan scratch her forhead – the boy always had a scar above his eyebrow. She deduces that this must be the girl, and wonders what she’s doing in A.N. Jell.

Later, Mu Hua Lan swings by the company and spies Mei Nan and Tai Qing playfully fighting – she vows that she won’t let “that woman’s” daughter get involved with her son.

4849

Xin Yu and Mei Nan head to the airport to go meet his mother and explain the situation. Jeremy, the coordi, and Mark were supposed to go with them, but Mark purposefully got the two alone to give them “romantic time”. At the airport, Xin Yu asks Mei Nan if they can just tell his mother they’re dating for real, and confesses his feelings. He doesn’t want an answer right away though, and tells her to meet him on the plane if she wants to return his feelings.

5051

Tai Qing drives to the airport, worrying that Xin Yu will be alone with Mei Nan. He runs around the airport looking for her, until he sees her still sitting where Xin Yu left her. He runs up to her and hugs her, before whispering in her ear that he likes her. Aw. Poor Xin Yu is left on the plane, looking sadly at the empty seat next to him.

Comments:

WHY DIDN”T YOU CONFESS RIGHT AWAY YOU SILLY BOY YOU COULD HAVE SAVED SO MUCH TIME!!!!!
okay now that I’ve got that off my chest… hooray for forward movement! Feelings are out in the open for all sides, and choices are made. Thank goodness. Now all we gotta do is wrap up the missing twin/Mei Nan pretending to be her brother pretending to be herself dating her brother’s (who is herself) bandmate.

  1. I guess this dramas not as popular since the subs seem to come out a little slower. I’m going to marathon it when its done and the subs are finished as I think I’d enjoy it especially since I haven’t seen the other versions.

    1. Yeah, there was some license issues in the beginning so alot of people gave up on it because it wasnt getting subbed. So far this version is my second favourite, with the original being the best (imo). The japanese one was okay, but not great.

    2. Actually, the subs are out up until ep 10 😉 There was a problem with licensing on viki but someone else picked it up. Look up for “lyricalxiaozero” on google and it should take it to her blog. If you want softsubs, they’re on d-addicts ^^

      1. Thanks for the tip. I’ve never tried to use soft subs as I’m technically challenged,and I’m always afraid I won’t be able to figure it out, but maybe I’ll give it a try.

    1. I’m sorry to keep asking questions, but I’ve literally never downloaded subs. How do the downloaded subs work? Is there a way to link them to the episodes? I’d appreciate any advice on how to do.

      1. If you don’t want to worry about syncing subtitles, you can go to http://lyricalzero.blogspot.com/p/fabulous-boys.html and download the pieces of the episodes that already have embedded subtitles. Once you have the three pieces of each episode downloaded, you can connect them with HJSplit (for a PC – download the program here: http://hjsplit.org/) or Split & Concat (for the Mac – http://loekjehe.home.xs4all.nl/Split&Concat/).

        If you are using HJSplit, here are instructions: http://dbsknightsubbers.blogspot.com/2009/05/how-to-use-hjsplit.html
        If you are using Split & Concat, the instructions are on the same page I linked above for it. You just have to scroll down to the section that says “Concatenate (recombine) split files”.

        Once you’ve assembled the parts of the episode into a whole, you should be able to watch it. Like I said, the subtitles are embedded into the video itself. They cannot be removed, but you don’t have to sync them.

        I hope this helps some!

  2. hello 🙂
    im from indonesia..
    i’ve read your recap and i really appreciated on your hard work
    if you don’t mind, can i remake your recap with indonesia language? i’ll be really grateful and definitely will give you a credit ^^ thank you~

    1. Hi! Recapping takes me a really, really long time to do, so if you did translate it please include a disclaimer: ie, “This recap is translated from Give Me Dramas’s Fabulous Boys recap” and then include the link/url back to the original recap episode. Thank you for asking! 🙂

  3. this show is like Sound of Music meets Twelfth Night (or She’s the Man), and it’s awesome! Anyways, I’m just happy it’s moving along nicely.

    I’m sad we never got to meet the father of Qing, I’m also sad this is coming to a close soon. But I’m happy the acting held up all this time. Also pretty decent rating for a remake that’s THIS faithful

    1. True! only two more eps! 🙂

      I think seeing Tai Qing’s father was a bit of a stretch since he was never mentioned at all in the other two dramas and they’d have to pay another actor just to cameo. If you ever direct another adaptation though be sure to include it! 😉

  4. I loved this! Tai Qing is being so sweet and open, and he took her to dinner and they stared into each others eyes. Too cute. He understands how incredibly stupid and naive she is, and I think that’s really awesome. And when he was teasing her after the text message she sent, I love it that he knew it was a typo straight away, and didn’t get all awkward or anything. I really love this version of Tae Kyung.

    And nothing to do with anything, really, but I loved Xin Ning’s dress in the photo shoot scene. So beautiful. I wanted to get a screen shot of it but they never actually showed a long shot of her in it, bah! Xin Ning might be a bitch but she always looks damn good.

    1. Agreed! He looked so pleased while teasing her, and so disappointed when she quickly said that she wanted to forget it.

      Ack I know! Hopefully they release more official HD photos from the set with her in them!

  5. Hi lol, watched this drama recently and enjoyed it, I felt the same when I was watching this episode!! Reallyyy what was with the delayed confession lol. Anyway great recap btw! It was fun, your commentary made me smile!
