The power of In A Good Way is in the details, the little moments, the stuff that probably wouldn’t even make it onscreen in other dramas but becomes the focal point here. Episode 16’s new video preview doesn’t have a lot of new stuff but does expand on the whole “what base” girl and guy talk lobbed at new couple Jia En and Liu Chuan. This drama has continued to give all the supporting characters their own story lines and strengthened all the various friendship threads that add to what makes it so lovely to watch. Tracy takes the lead in schooling clueless innocent Jia En on the various types of skinship between hotblooded young couples (using poor sweet Bai Xue as her test subject), while over in the men’s dorm Ah Qing is the one using furry Momo as an unwitting practice dummy to show Liu Chuan how to get ahead in bases. I love how Ah Qing thinks kissing is second base while Tracy considers it third base. Jia En’s hairstyle has gone from short school girl bob to long ponytail, and now she’s rocking an even sleeker straight do paired with a jean skirt that makes me think this little girl is really really in love and wanting to be as pretty as possible for her man. Sometimes I think Liu Chuan ought to be reserved in his dating style as well, and sometimes he is, and other times I worry that if he gets a chance he’ll hit get to third base with Jia En before she even realizes her clothes are off. Or am I giving wuri Liu Chuan too much credit? His smirk while Ah Qing was telling him about the bases totally indicates he is amusing Ah Qing and doesn’t need the lesson at all. It looks like Jia En’s parents are fine with her dating Liu Chuan, while over on Ren Wei’s side his parents clearly like Jia En for their future daughter-in-law but that stuff is out of their hands so hopefully they can hang around to knock some gumption back into Ren Wei.
