I never cared for Hua Zheng and to drag out her story is going to be painful for me. I guess that's why people invented the fast-forward button on the remote.
As for OKK being genuinely lovesick over HR, I almost laughed out loud when I heard this. Why must everything be about love? Why must every evil villian who happens to be young and good looking automatically become a "misunderstood" individual whose redemption lies in the awesome and all-emcompassing power of luuuurve? All this emphasis on the characters' love lives and the creation/expansion of love triangles leads me to believe that the script was actually written by teenaged girl fanfiction writers.
