"On Air"

Dear listeners

Let us continue

with yesterday's story

Jun Chu, with no means, broke Man Li's heart

And he deeply regrets it

After a few days of torment

He finally decides to write her a letter

Asking to meet her, with plans to

Surprise her with a marriage proposal


Watch it!

Thank you

The car's on fire, run!

It's going to explode!

I made you some special dishes today

I told you to let Rong Ma do the cooking

Don't get it wrong

My mother treats you like her daughter in law

But to me

You're no more than a guest in this house

If it weren't for my mother's lie

About her being seriously sick

And forcing me into this marriage

I wouldn't even have let you in the door

I promised your mother I would take care of you

Would you stop repeating that?

Take care of me?

Do you even know me?

Oh, I blinked in this one!

The others are very good

You're very photogenic


When I become old and ugly

Will you still love me?

Jun Chu...

Will you marry me?

Fine, I know the answer...

Jun Chu is really good with the camera

Let's forget the past

And start over...

What do you say?

Is this shot okay?

This one?

Jun Chu

If someday

We should be separated

I hope that you will

Listen to this recording once in awhile

And always remember me

Jun Chu!

Jun Chu?

What do you want?

I heard strange sounds coming from here

So I came up

It's nothing

The young master has given orders

Other than him

No one is permitted to enter this room

Rong Ma

who lived here before us?

You've been here for awhile

Who lived here before us?

Mrs. Shen's distant relatives

Lived here in the past

But they moved out three years ago

Since then, the house has been empty

Mrs. Shen wanted to leave

this house for her son and his wife

His wife?

Yes, and that's you

This house is too big

There are still a lot of places I've never been to

Could you show me around?

Is something wrong?

What do you mean?

Nothing... Nothing

Rong Ma!

If you have something to say, just say it

We're of the same roots and upbringing

Let's save the formalities between us

I often hear strange sounds in this house

It's as if someone's trying to speak to me

You're already married into this household

Take my advice

Just live in peace

Back where I come from

Eating bats isn't out of the ordinary

We even ate the leeches

We would tie a calf

In the pond

And let the leeches crawl all over it

After the leeches are done with their feast

We then hack them off the calf

Peel them open

And squeeze out all the blood inside

Then we'd stir them with a little sesame oil

So delicious...

That's enough


As for the past...

Don't ask about it anymore

Never mention it again

The young master doesn't like to hear about it


Who is that?

Who's speaking?

You are now listening to "Flirting with Jazz"

Hello everyone

This is your DJ, Man Li

Dear listeners

Let us continue

with yesterday's story

Jun Chu, with no means

broke Man Li's heart

And he deeply regrets it

After a few days of torment

He finally decides to write her a letter

Expressing his true sentiments

This is Shanghai's Osbourne Radio Station

Who let you in here?

My mother is here

she is waiting downstairs

I don't want to upset her

So listen carefully...

In the future

if you dare to set foot in this room again

I will make sure that

you are out of this place forever!

What do you actually do all day long?

Didn't you say you weren't filming anymore?

Where do you disappear off to all day?

San San says she hardly sees you

As for Rong Ma

I don't know whether I should curse her
