My last article about Tiny Times! I watched the movie this summer and was surprised by how much Guo Jingming changed the story line. Even though it is not very innovative, the whole movie was extremely nostalgic and made me cry at the end. Definitely a good chick flick movie that do justice to its reputation!
Hehe, I am done recapping this movie (well, more like writing a long and precise synopsis since I didn’t add pictures)! I am happy I completed this series and unlike some other views, do not think it was a (complete) waste of time. Sure, this is not a masterpiece… but it was still overall enjoyable! Also, Kai Ko appears as Gu Yuan, which was nice to see :P… A lot of sad and happy moments below:
Gu Li is in her house, doing a mock interview with her half brother about the sudden loss of 400 Millions RMB in their company, Shenggu. Nan Xiang is preparing for her first day at JM with Lin Xiao. Later that night, there is a big fashion event and Chong Guang (also known as Shaun) surprises LX with a kiss. They get caught by the paparazzis and she is laughed the next morning at work.
Gu Yuan’s mom is now the temporary director of JM and is doing the investigations. She gives Gu Li a ultimatum: find the 400M or give away all her Shenggu holds. Otherwise, it is jail time. GY comes to comfort GL (omg, is that Kai Ko???), a ring on his left hand (did they get engaged?)
Among the secret heritage of her dad, there is an old manufacture, an old horse race house, an old cabin, and an old painting drawn her dad. Gu Zhun offers to investigate the places while Neil and Tang Wangru tag along. They do not find anything at all. Meanwhile, Shaun proposes to LX. At JM, NX served as GM’s assistant and soon become a private assistant, just like LX.
We discover Gu Li has cancer. She sees the ex-boyfriend of NX in the hospital who discovers her secret.
The dad of CG, Constantly, disapprove his relationship with LX and fires her. As CG confronts him for that, Mr. C gets hitten on the head as he falls on a table and isunconscious (okay, everyone needs to calm down ><). CG stops talking to LX (such a childish behavior). At the same time, GM discovers Kitty is a private assistant sent by his dad to watch after his behaviors and fires her (awwn no, I liked her!) despite her attachment to him.
GL is too proud to let her friends watch her die and fake sleeping with the ex-bf of NX. Everyone start fighting, calling her an hypocrite. During the fight, Wangru gets her face deformed. Everyone leaves the house and GL is by herself. GY continues to believe her and even goes to jail in her place (his mom eventually pays for his bail). Meanwhile, LX finds a new job, WR goes back to her family, and NX gets a raise at work at JM.
During Gu Li’s 27th birthday, LX comes back, willing to rekindle their past friendship. They party all night and GL cries. Later that night, she makes an adieu video to all her friends and Gu Yuan. She faints in GY’s arms (he comes back for her birthday at dawn). Meanwhile, NX got promoted to the name of Art Director (loool, how did that happen? I doubt an assistant who is good at serving coffee and papers deserves that title, lool). However, she gives up her title… running to see GL. Actually, everyone runs to the hospital and as NX gives her her blood, everyone is crying.
Gu Li is getting better. GZ and Neil discover gold in the old cabin (the horse in the racing house’s name is “Gold”, the manufacture is producing metallurgy and the painting has a cabin in it… all are hints left by his past dad about this secret legacy) and she becomes rich once again. GY’s mom also accept their married and all the friends are back together. WR’s face is back to normal (thanks to surgery paid by GL) and she falls in love with an athlete at her badminton club. NX goes visit her ex-bf’s grave and finds peace for herself (he was killed by street mobsters). CG officially tells the paparazzi LX is his girlfriend.
