The awesome train of In A Good Way just keeps on rolling. This Friday’s episode 4 was so amazing I was rather speechless watching not wanting to miss a single detail. Nothing has arrived in the form of romance that is explicit but all the developing stuff is deliciously tingly. This drama is already snowballing in popularity and interest in Taiwan and episode 4 broke 2% in ratings which is incredible (episode 3 brought in 1.31). IAGW airs on the SETTV cable channel on a Friday night time slot with the odds stacked against it getting a wide audience. It’s predecessor Just You was also considered a hit and its ratings averaged 1.3-1.7 during its entire run (after premiering at 0.73). This drama’s official fan page also stunningly jumped 20,000 likes in a night after the airing of episode 4. Most SETTV dramas airs on its prime time channel TTV, such as its Sunday night dramas like Miss Rose, King Flower, Love Around, and now Deja Vu. Those ought to get ratings of at least 2 and higher, with anything less considered a disappointment. I’m thrilled IAGW is a ratings juggernaut because it might induce SETTV to make more dramas like this, plus more popularity means more goodies from the press and the production for me. I won’t talk about episode 4 and save everything for the recap proper, except for this: in one of many scenes that show Liu Chuan is surely falling for Jia En is the racing to be the first to call her on her pager and the whole delightfully awkward conversation of “What are you doing?” “I’m waiting for your call, what are you doing?” “I’m calling you.” “I learned more about love today” “About love? Can you tell me?” “It’s a little complicated to explain, let me think it through and then tell you.” “Oh, okay, but you tell me right away after you figure it out.” “Okay.” Then cue awkward silence until the guys waiting in line to use the phone are all like “yo dude, we need the phone, too.” Ahahaha, this drama slays me good. The RongYi couple is so red hot in Taiwan right now even Rong Rong (Kristen) and Guo Yi (Lego) admit they feel electricity when they act together now. Good, keep that stuff coming you two. Let’s watch some of their BTS for some extra sweetness.
Check out these two cute as can be BTS snippets of RongYi being oh so flirty with each other.
RongYi couple “Brother or husband?”:

Kirsten and Lego are surprised to discover they resemble each other, which the Chinese think gives them husband-wife face. Lego jokes he sometimes wants to say “Hey sis, did mom call you today?” when he’s chilling with Kirsten. Kirsten says she keeps getting electric sizzles from Lego and the reporter asks them to stare right now for the cameras. The press wants Lego to give Kirsten a cheek peck as a birthday present and she’s all like nooooo, it’s too fast, I’m not ready, and he jokes that it feels like his birthday since that’s quite a present for him. He ends up with a hug and she’s all like “brother” and then “hubby!” and Lego pretty much flails. I wish “brother” in Chinese has the same connotation as “oppa” in Korean but it doesn’t. It really just is a dude who is like or actually your brother. No subtext in there. But hubby? That’s the clincher, no wonder Lego also fell over.
RongYi couple “I Will Miss You”:

This is the latest BTS released by SETTV because that network surely knows how to milk their chemistry. Kirsten sings a song called “I will miss you” to Lego because he’s not going to be filming tomorrow since he doesn’t have any scenes so the song is because she wants to show him how much she’ll miss him because he’s not around.
