Goodies have to be shared to taste even yummier and this week’s best treat has got to be the first three minutes of this week’s episode 6 from Sunday night SETTV idol drama Someone Like You (Hearing Happiness). The drama is doing solidly in the ratings with a devoted fanbase, and oddly I’m probably less addicted than I ought to be considering I love leads Kingone Wang and Kristen Jen, not to mention the drama is billed as all sorts of romantic and swoony. I still enjoy watching every week and this Sunday’s episode started off with such a hilarious/candid shower scene I just had to write about it!
Leading lady Yu Xi works as blind department store president Zhan Cheng’s personal assisant/caretaker and the two quickly got past an early misunderstanding to form a very positive and caring employer/employee relationship. Nothing fully romantic has developed yet since Yu Xi still has a douchy boyfriend, but the drama is throwing them into individual scenes that just scream romance buildup. Romantic is fine and all but the drama also has a pretty wink wink subversive streak and it was put on perfect display in the first three minutes of episode 6. Yu Xi gets a page from her boss to go tend to him, which was an accident since he’s actually in the shower, but the end result is SO MUCH WIN and guaranteed rewatch fodder.
Yu Xi’s first reaction upon seeing naked Boss showering is shock, wondering if she was hallucinating what she just saw. She then steps back to look again and has to gape an extra second before she darts away. She can’t believe she’s seen ALL OF HIM, and then wonders if Boss purposely paged her to come tend to him so that she can watch him shower! She then wonders if he sensed her presence, and then uses that as an excuse to go confirm again LOL. This time she doesn’t even pretend to be embarrassed and just stares and drools her fill while smiling like a loon.
She finally stops peeping but has to fan herself because her face is so hot and flushed. She then tries to talk herself out of doing it but then still backs up a few steps to keep staring and ogling her hot smexy boss. Turns out he put his watch on the pager which is why she thought he was calling her. Yu Xi finally runs to her room and compose herself and the first worry is that she might have cheated on her boyfriend by what she did. She talks to his picture on her phone to try and explain herself and ask him not to be angry. She then gets distracted and thinks her boyfriend works out regularly so his physique must be better than her boss so he must be just as tasty. She then catches herself being such a pervert and flops back into bed.
And extra funny easter egg with this scene is for those who watched Kristen in her last SETTV drama In a Good Way. She had a scene where she changed upon naked Lego Lee changing and her character freaked out and never took advantage of the moment. Clearly she’s not letting another such prime opportunity pass her by this time!
