Not much has changed from my initial impressions in this second season of the story, except to say that the addition of sexy VP Bao as Andie’s love interest was a success in terms of casting and compatibility. Giving Guan Guan a chance to blossom was enjoyable, and the relationship between ‘Flirty Zhao’ and Qu Xiao Xiao was even more so. But I still find the actress who plays Ying Ying annoying as hell in her interpretation (please god don’t tell me people think that kind of behavior is cute!), and I really wanted to slap Sheng Mei more than once before she wised up.
Season 3 is already underway, and this time I’m hoping they work Jin Dong more into the story! I know he’s really just a supporting cast member, but let’s change that, okay?
If you saw season 1 and are curious how the story continues, give this a look. If you didn’t, know that it doesn’t spend all that much time on filling in the backstory, which might be a good thing (if it means you spend less time on Ying Ying). Otherwise, you could get the gist of things in a sketchy fashion and just pick up new if only to enjoy Big Bad Bao.
