    Ep 2 is pretty sad. This episode is all about Xiao Shu, and Genie plays her blind character rather well. I'm quite impressed. Wasabi is also totally in her character, although she screams too damn much sometimes, haha. Overall, I think the girls act better than the guys. Huang Wan Bo (Ah Ken) who plays San Cheng just can't act IMO.

    My fav scene is when Leng Lie and Xiao Shu cringe upon eating Michelin's foul tasting food. Love their expressions, lol. Leng Lie even mutters "Jesus, what the hell is this?"

    Default Ep 3

    Xiao Shu:
    I finally got the answer I've been looking for. Xiao Shu does harbor some feelings for Leng Lie, but she keeps pushing him away. She's afraid that he only likes her out of pity and guilt. Is she really too blind (no pun intended) to realize that LL really loves her? Well, at least she seems to be very happy with her newfound freedom and happiness. I also like the fact that she finally chose to face LL instead of keep hiding from him.

    Leng Lie:
    He's totally immersed in his own pain at first but taking charge of his own life later. Hopefully he won't turn into a cold character. I wonder whether he'll be paired up with Tilly or Wasabi. With Wasabi's volatile character, it should be interesting to see his interaction with her =P

    Michelin:
    He's like a kid trapped in a man's body. He can get easily excited over little things, like when he's happily playing with the lamp he bought for XS. The funniest part is that when he discovers different tastes of food (thanks to XS). He would take a sip of tea, eat rock candy, and daze in amazement. He then did the same thing when tasting flour and lemon, lol.

    San Cheng:
    There's no antagonist (yet) in this series, but I dislike this character. He's so annoying! He also always brings trouble with him. I hate it when he's trying to kiss up to Wasabi and always imagining himself in a love triangle with XS and Wasabi. Ugh!

    yupe, if there's no accident, i bet they will be a paired, luvely one. So sad when she remembered all the memories with LL.

    For LL, gosshhh i really cried with and for him!! the way he looked when he met XS and got rejected when he asked her to go home.
    He'll be jealous for sure, but hoping he didn't turned bad. But i think his dad will be the antagonist, and maybe he's the one who'll interfere with this luv triangle

    After watching ep 4, I feel that this series is changing direction to be more lighthearted. Ep 1-2 are a bit too serious (and maybe a tad boring), but starting from ep 3 last week, the story began to pick up its pace. I just hope that they don't go overboard with the exaggerated scenes trying to be funny coz it doesn't really work here. I also thought San Cheng is bad enough. Obviously I haven't seen Jerry's over-the-top gay acting

    Doremii has released the eng sub for eps 1.

    I think eps 1 n 2, they wanted to give us a background and as the basic where the real story is gonna start. But 1 n 2 are not bad either. Too bad the time spot is not rite.

    tanteun, don't get me wrong. I actually like Rolling Love from the get-go. But I read some comments about viewers being dissatisfied with the first 2 eps, so they stop watching it. It's definitely not helping the ratings which are already low to begin with. I heard this series is going to get cut because of the poor performance Btw, they released couple of new songs (incl. Danson's) on this last episode.

    Yeah, so far it's only 4 out of 13 planned eps.

    Here's the synopsis of each episode:

    Episode 1:
    click to show/hide spoilers

    One was born in a remote fishing village, a straightforward youth who relied on selling egg fried rice to live - Michellin, one graduated from American cooking school at the age of 14, currently is what everyone calls international chef - Leng Lie, originally two people whose lives would never meet, because of one special girl, their destinies began to closely link...

    Michelin's Chinese restaurant, store name <Dan Chao Fan>, everyday is limited to 100 servings of egg fried rice, definitely become the villagers� big purchasing rush, and at the restaurant besides Michelin, there is also a shop assistant Wasabi, whose job is waitress outside, has a crush on Michelin, she thinks that all the customers come because of her beauty. Michelin, besides egg fried rice, always trys to invent new dishes but besides egg fried rice, all other dishes make everyone run away as fast as they can.

    Michelin's good friend from former days - Cai Shan Cheng (nickname: Three Levels) came down from far away fishing boat, has a valiant expression, starts to depend on Michelin, hope that they can be like they were in the past and depend on fighting; he never thought that Michelin would become so filial and take over his father, Mr Mi's restaurant that he left behind, what surprised him even more was that Mr Mi who used to drink all day and not know how to cook, could actually teach Michelin to make such a delicious fried rice! Orphan San Cheng, because he had nowhere else to go, stayed at egg fried rice restaurant and become happy enemies with Wasabi!

    Elsewhere, youngest International Royal KaFuKa graduate, relying on one <Ghost Noodle>, won countless international cooking competitions, genius chef � Leng Lie, just came back from overseas, under his father Leng Zhong Tian's preparations, prepare to enter a new Lie Business Company Emperor Hotel as Chef Official, but in fact, Leng Lie returned home because of the girl from his childhood that he can't stop thinking about(Xiao Shu).

    Leng Lie and Xiao Shu could have been lovers but because some years ago, Leng Lie was responsible for the car accident that caused Xiao Shu's blindness; Leng Lie looked everywhere within the country for specialist doctors but just couldn't cure Xiao Shu's blindness, Xiao Shu didn't want to become a burden to Leng Lie because he felt responsible, therefore decided to just remain normal friends, they drifted apart as a result.

    Xiao Shu worked very hard to get used to being blind, but this made Leng Lie's remorse even stronger and he didn't give up, also giving Xiao Shu hope, then let down and this time Leng Lie return, originally they would have been happy but because Leng Lie found a new doctor to cure Xiao Shu, Xiao Shu rejected him and that old wound soon opened again.

    Due to problems about doctors, Xiao Shu and Leng Lie had an argument but tension was quickly released, the chef of the Emperor Hotel is not happy that Leng Lie become Chef Official at such a young age, so there was a strike, Leng Lie rushed to manage it, while Xiao Shu and Nancy met up and went driving, no-one would have thought this day would change Xiao Shu's life after she meets Michelin...

    Episode 2:
    click to show/hide spoilers

    Nancy seeing that Leng Lie is back, decides to encourage him to continue to go after Xiao Shu but Leng Lie feels cut off from Xiao Shu because of her blindness, he has also thought about making Xiao Shu happy, even taking her to a restaurant with nice dishes, who would have guessed that Xiao Shu would actively suggest that they go to "Dan Chao Fan", Danson was curious about it and agreed.

    Leng Lie discovered that a small restaurant like this would attract so many people, and also the happiness and satisfaction that Xiao Shu expressed while eating eat was something he had seen very little of, Leng Lie discovered that he was beginning to become cautious of this chef, not only because Xiao Shu continuously comments on Michellin's rice, moreover Michellin could possibly use chinese ingredients - the essence of frying rice to become a very talented person, then this talented chef, besides fried rice, owill make other dishes that people will compliment and praise.

    Elsewhere, Michelin sees Xiao Shu come over with famous international chef Leng Lie, even though on the outside, he wants to treat him the same [as his other customers], in his heart he is a bit cautious of Leng Lie, but at that moment Michelin still doesn't know that the restless feeling in his heart is because he is wary of the relationship between Xiao Shu and Leng Lie

    After leaving "Dan Chao Fan", Leng Lie taking advantage of Xiao Shu's good mood, once again mentioned taking Xiao Shu to see doctor, originally he thought she would be angry but Xiao Shu had Leng Lie's feelings in mind and couldnt bare to see him so remorseful, so knowing that the hope was not great, she promised to go to the doctor with Leng Lie, but never did she think that the result would be that she might be blind for her whole life

    While Leng Lie is hurt and remorseful, he decides to propose to Xiao Shu so he can look after her for life, never did he think that this would cause both of them to get hurt. Xiao Shu didn't want to be Leng Lie's burden so she made a decision... and on the other side, Leng Lie who had his mind set on marrying Xiao Shu, told his decision of marrying her to his father who had always disapproved of them being together

    Xiao Shu wanted to escape Leng Lie's deep feelings for her so she left, not knowing where to go, finally she came to the the egg fried rice restuarant that had given her warm memories, so she decided to stay there temporarily, she could only hope that her leaving would make Leng Lie get rid of his remorseful pain, but she didn't know that "Dan Chao Fan" restaurant and Michellin and his colleagues, their happiness had started to make her heal.

    While Xiao Shu was feeling the warmth of this place and everyone in it, Leng Lie becomes even more remorseful and guilty because he can't find xiao shu so he turns to work to heal his wounds, but late at night when everything is silent, Leng Lie's love for Xiao Shu and his pain consumer him

    In the morning, Wasabi wakes up to find Xiao Shu isn't in bed, not being able to find her she wakes up Michelin and San Cheng. The three of them suddenly realise that Xiao Shu can't see and might be in danger in this unfamiliar place, they panic and go their separate ways to find her.

    Panicking Michellin goes to the sea side and finds Xiao Shu telling stories to little kids, not aware of others' panic, Xiao Shu is carefree and relaxed, leaving a deep impression on Michelin, and on their way back, these two people develop a subtle feelings for each other.

    Episode 3:
    click to show/hide spoilers

    Because he was hurt that Genie left, Leng Lie went drinking with Tilly, at the Emperor Hotel suite he woke up, Tilly told him how she felt about him, but her love is not returned because Leng Lie is only thinking about Xiao Shu's departure.

    Xiao Shu and Michelin returned to the restaurant, Wasabi realised that they were very close and got jealous, never thought that Xiao Shu even wanted to live there, but she wants to live independently so plans to find another house, Wasabi helped her to find a house far away from Michelin.

    Now that she was settled, Xiao Shu decided to face Leng Lie, rang to contact Nancy. Both of them rushed to Xiao Shu's place, surprised that she wanted to live by herself. Leng Lie is very hurt, but also can't change Xiao Shu's decision, and can only silently leave snacks for her, to him, Xiao Shu has gradually left his life, even though he is hurt, he decided not to give up Xiao Shu. And Michelin who can't sleep at night, also realised that he is gradually having feelings for Xiao Shu...

    San Cheng wanted to renovate the orphanage, owing one million dollars, the lending company tracked him down at "Dan Chao Fan", San Cheng was beat up until swollen, originally didn't want to tell the truth, he was forced to by Michelin and Wasabi, and told them the truth about owing money.

    Xiao Shu wanted to move, even though Leng Lie couldn't bare it he gave her his blessing, made a happy-after-the-rain "Rainbow" lunch for Xiao Shu; Xiao Shu brought it to "Dan Chao Fan" to let the others try, Michelin gulped it down in two mouthfuls, unlike San Cheng and Wasabi when they finished "Rainbow", they felt 7 different feelings of happiness. Xiao Shu suggested that Michelin eat it more slowly, Michelin refused; at night by himself, Michelin gave in, eating "Rainbow" one bite at a time, opening up feelings that he had kept inside for very long, Michelin started to crazily savour the taste of every ingredient.

    Leng Lie found it difficult to forget Xiao Shu, he could only use work to keep his mind away from the hurt; Leng Lie came up with many ideas, determined to use ordinary lunchbox ingredients for the Emperor Hotel cooking contest, using 1 million dollars to attract people into entering and also giving the chance to work at the hotel.

    Lending company went to "Dan Chao Fan" again, messed up until the restaurant almost can't do business, Michelin decided to take responsibility for San Cheng, Wasabi disapproved; San Cheng told them about the million dollar lunchbox competitiion with excitement, convinced Michelin to enter the contest with the million dollar prize, San Cheng believed that Leng Lie organised it and he had the friendship of Xiao Shu and many other people, Michelin refused.

    Late at night Michelin reconsidered, he thought about Leng Lie, Xiao Shu and also San Cheng, his heart was having complicated emotions, in the end he decided to enter the lunchbox contest...

    click to show/hide spoilers

    Michelin is beginning to try new dishes, his cooking abilities are starting to improve, making customers very surprised, Michelin thanks Xiao Shus guidance for opening up his sense of taste. Tonight Michelin is taking Xiao Shu home, the two of them talk very happily but are seen by Leng Lie who was looking for Xiao Shu, Leng Lies emotional state reaches its limit, from childhood he was taught by his father not to show emotions, for the first time he doesnt know how to face himself.

    Michelin successfully passes the first round of the Million Dollar Lunchbox Contest with his egg fried rice, for the upcoming finals, Michelin, with the help of San Cheng and the villagers, worked very hard to improve his cooking abilities, he also has amazing improvements, but at this time Xiao Shu says that Michelins cooking lacks his personal style.

    The topic for the Million Dollar Lunchbox Contest is finally announced, the topic is the word Happiness, the villagers help Michelin come up with his Happiness Lunchbox, thought long and hard, but while Michelin is searching for his personal style, he made a Super Stinky Tofu Lunchbox

    The failure of the Super Stinky Tofu Lunchbox makes Michelin lose all belief in himself, in disappointment, Michelin wanders around town on his motorbike, looking for inspiration for Happiness Lunchbox, Michelin meets Leng Lie who is upset because of Xiao Shu. Michelin also knows that Leng Lie is upset because he cant celebrate Xiao Shus birthday with her, to thank Leng Lie, Michelin decides to help Leng Lie plan a special birthday party for Xiao Shu
    This party was planned for Leng Lie so he cooks the dishes and his cooking abilities surprise Michelin a lot

    However, no matter what method he uses, Leng Lie cant change the relationship between them, Leng Lie instead feels upset because of Xiao Shus cold attitude towards him, compared to Michelin who naturally makes her happy, Leng Lie starts to become jealous of Michelin, because of this, at Xiao Shus party, a fight accidentally breaks out between a drunk Leng Lie and Michelin.

    This fight in turn, reveals the deep feelings that they both have for Xiao Shu and the rivalry between them

    yeah eps 1 & 2 are slower than 3 & 4. I only read people comments in AF tho which mostly they like it since ep 1

    Bad Timing for DCF tho not to mention CTV/GTV only depends on actors/actress's popularity to gain ratings not story wise.

    Is Rolling Love's ratings really that bad? I read in Asianfanatics that GTV want to 'edit' the series to make it more 'compact' (real meaning: make it shorter so that it can end faster and we can air a new series).

    Last report I read, RL ratings is around 1.xx. But, Clover & Honey is also 1.xx only, right? Lots of other idol drama also has ratings around 1-2 points only.

    So, do they really need to cut RL?

    it's bad!! last eps is 0,9 sumthing.

    True, the rumors that floating around is to cut the eps but no confirmation tho from CTV/GTV. Originally RR only have 13 eps, that's short la. If it's cutted *sighhh* It's not fair for the casts who already gave their hardworks.

    As tanteun mentioned, bad timing must be the main reason. Against the ratings juggenaut FTLY, Rolling Love can only thread water to survive. It opened at 1.3, and it went downhill to 0.97 for this last ep 4. Considering that a new drama 'Honey and Clover' starring megastar Joe Cheng also did poorly (1.06 for its debut ratings) this past weekend, FTLY has definitely crushed the competition. Rolling Love storyline is pretty good. Okay, I might be biased since I like the 3 main leads haha, but honestly it's not that bad =P

    Sorry for jumping into the convo, but I believe I read somewhere that the producers confirmed that although they're not gonna cut short the series, they're gonna edit the series to make it more "fast-paced".

    That and the Rolling Love OST is gonna come out on June 13th, but you can already preorder it on Yesasia here: http://us.yesasia.com/en/PrdDept.asp...id-1011049123/

    All the songs in the album are sung by Genie (and Feng Le Feng Le was actually in her Oxygen of Happiness album). Apparently none of the songs sung by Fahrenheit (the main theme) and Danson (the insert song) are in it because they do not belong in the same record company that's releasing it. Sighhhhhh.
